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...

     There’s actually a funny story behind this one. A friend at another media site had been out to a show the night before and I was woken up to that wonderful ping of my Facebook messenger in the predawn hours. My friend had heard these guys play that night and was so excited by what he saw, he could not wait for me to interview these guys so he decided to take it...

     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,...

     I wanted to write this review as something special. No it’s not just because I love these guys. It’s because I truly believe the world needs to hear this music. Its heavy, its got amazing deep meaning, it crushes, it’s the true definition of Hardcore. I was given this EP as a gift from the band themselves, but that does not at all affect my opinion.  Listen to the EP for free or check out...

FAM is a Pittsburgh, PA based music media company that’s all about the personal, emotional and social experience of music. The internet is awesome for finding music – living it is better! We’re bringing you professional photos from shows, articles, videos and more to remind you that your weekend doesn’t have to be spent here in the virtual world but with people who have at least one thing in common with you – a shared taste for music. Music media has been done before, but we flipped the script and concentrate on the stuff you haven’t seen yet – the local and regional bands that aren’t just a name on a billboard and a face on a stage. You’re probably still going to find some national level stuff happening around the Pittsburgh area but that’s because when they come to town, they’re part of our family… and once upon a time they were a local band from somewhere.
