The 4 1/2 Mikes (minus the half) get into the time machine and head back into the nine-trey for their latest podcast…whoomp, there it is!
Antlered Man preview their upcoming October release with a heavy new track called “GDZ” and Popblerd has your review!
“Californyeah” is already an incredible song. Now it’s an incredible video. Popblerd has the deets.
On their second album, Sweden’s Holograms spearhead a new wave of post punk revivalism with an album that’s a more focused affair then the still equally brilliant Holograms. Forever drops barely a year after their debut made waves and unlike most expedited sophomore albums, this one doesn’t suffer from the “Quick! We have to get a new album out” syndrome. There is absolutely no other band making music like this today. If you combined the gothic overtones of The Cure’s [...]
Welcome to another new column I will attempt to write on a weekly basis (If you’re keeping count, that makes three total!). I have been into comics longer than I’ve been into music (Going on 30 years now) so this is a no-brainer for me. Going forward, we’ll have some chats about the latest comic news and maybe a review or two on singles issues (like today) or hot trade paperbacks. Maybe I’ll rant about my hatred of the Spider-Man [...]
Nine Inch Nails and John Legend lead off a very busy new release week.
This is the album everyone will be talking about this fall. The first recorded work from Kyuss Lives (Now known as Vista Chino) is an undeniable return to the desert sound they helped create and then pioneer with a modern touch. Taking cues from …And The Circus Leaves Town and heading full force into Blues For The Red Sun territory at times, Peace stands on its own as a triumph to the legacy of Kyuss. Speaking of Blues…, listening to [...]
The beautiful thing about Hesitation Marks, the latest offering from Trent Reznor, is that it is a Nine Inch Nails album without any expectations because it literally appeared out of thin air about 2 months ago. Being a completely unexpected album means it can be NIN’s most experimental yet. They could go pop (“Everything”), industrial (“Came Back Haunted”), electronica (“Disappointed”)….hell, they could even do dubstep if Reznor willed it (Thankfully they didn’t go that route). Like Reznor says during the [...]
For those who are new to Touche Amore (haven’t seen them live), their newly released (live) music video for “ DNA” off the soon to be released Is Survived By is a great glimpse into their powerful, moving live performances. Frontman Jeremy Blohm, paces anxiously throughout the duration of the 2 plus minutes of feverous guitar work and drum pulsing adding his screams and pleas to the beautiful churning behind him. Unlike, their first single “ Just Exist” which was more melodic compared [...]
As we learned from Uncle Al’s biography (Reviewed by us here ), Master Jourgensen tends to do everything ass backwards. It should come as no surprise then that first single “PermaWar”, off of Ministry’s upcoming final album From Beer To Eternity, is a slab of nostalgia-fueled heaviness that at times hearkens back to the band’s early goth days (Especially the chorus). In the vein of Relapse but a little more in tune with “Lieslieslies” and the more political Rio Grande Blood [...]
The last week of August brings forth a trio of releases from some artists that I either a) Never cared about, b) Used to love but don’t care about now, and c) Kinda sort of like but don’t care about anymore. As for a): There is something about Avenged Sevenfold that I vehemently hate. Is it that they’re headlining over deftones and Ghost on their upcoming tour or is it because, frankly, their music is awful? Regardless of my opinion, [...]
