A vocal clinic was in full effect from note #1, so much so it could be argued that a second version of the “Three Tremors” should be recognized. Noora Louhimo of Battle Beast, Charlotte Wessels of Delain, and Kamelot’s current goldenthroat Tommy Karevik each sounded effortlessly impeccable, exuding star quality yet remaining unmistakably distinguishable from one another. Not to be undone, incredibly versatile guest melodic death vocalist Lauren Hart managed to muscle her way into...

     This one’s a little….. Different. While many bands I have the pleasure of interviewing are in rock and metal, Leprosy has the honor of being the very first Gore Metal band I’ve ever written about – but you’re going to see why! Imagine attending a show where the costumes are out, the theatrics are rolling and the vocalist is growling, screaming and drenched in blood… do they have your attention yet?    ...

    I was recently able to sit down with Kevlar, a self described “Kick ass modern hard Rock/Metal” and, after getting a chance to hear the latest release Aftermath coming out next month, I wholeheartedly agree! The energy of this music is all that and more! The name says it all – Hard, Resilient, Durable… This is Kevlar.       Band member role call – Kelci Margaret  (Lead Vocals), Anthony Sanzo (Bass), Nick Sanzo (Drums, Vocals), Jake...

     To preface: I want to state this show is probably the best I’d ever been to. Also to preface: I need to get out more.      With that being said, I cannot overstate how amazing this was. Massive production by D.A.M.thats Entertainment llc, who actually came in and built not one but 2 stages. Both stages complete with lighting and excellent sound and in a lot of instances having one stage with well done...

     In 2015, Breaking Benjamin re-emerged after a 4-year hiatus due to a mixture of health issues and legal battles with a new team, (Keith Wallen, Jasen Rauch, Shaun Foist and Aaron Brusch) and new energy with the release of Dark Before Dawn. While received positively, the album fell short in the eyes of some fans because the material itself had been quite old; being written almost single-handedly by Ben during the hiatus period,...
