Steamy, funky, and anarchic were the operative words of the evening. Whatever “stoner mountain metal” is, West Virginians Horseburner are churning out quite a tasty brew as evidenced by an impressive, late-night stand at Polish Hill’s Gooski’s. The smoky, humid environs only seemed to enhance the Kadavar/Mastodon/Thin Lizzy pyrotechnics that Horseburner, who were a runaway highlight last year’s Descendants of Crom festival, have a tyrefitter’s grip on. Riff after riff assailed the hazy gloom and...

Chip Dimonick has been part of the Pittsburgh music scene for going on his 3rd decade, and yes, he started when he was very young! His latest campaign is with his new band Chip & the Charge Ups! You know that you’ve heard them, especially if you’re a fan of the WDVE Morning Show. The Morning Show does a segment with Pittsburgh Penguins legend Phil Borque called ‘Hockey Talk’, and the theme music is ‘The...

     If you’re a concert junkie like me, one thing you love is finding ‘that’ band. You know the one, the band that seems to come out of nowhere, the one who you didn’t know what to expect but blew you away. A Notion of Silence did that to me in spades with their very first show.       Headlining the Collision show at Mr Smalls Funhouse this band is not a normal hard rock...

Now, I know I’ve said this a few times already, but hey…I don’t tell you how to live your life. “Shrouded In Neglect“, is another one of my favorite bands in the local metal scene! I truly cannot express how grateful I am to have such a class act like these guys in our scene. They’re known for going out of their way for their fans, but I’ll get back to that! These guys also...

On a sinfully humid night in Pittsburgh’s Bloomfield early yesterday evening, one could hear the ghosts of bands past haunting the alleyways. The reconfigured music of acts such as Thin Lizzy and Wishbone Ash wafted into the thick summer air from Howler’s, that perennial classic of the local dive bar scene. There was something alluring and familiar yet new afoot. Ah yes, it was axe crazy mastermind Dave Wheeler’s new band, Limousine Beach, and they...

   “Speaking In Tongues” is another one of my personal favorite’s in the local game. A great group of young guys, just out there to have fun and share some of their art with the world! These guys have some great shows coming up soon, i’ll have those listed below. You may remember the artical I wrote about “Forsaken By Society” opening for “Sworn In”, “Revenge Season”, as well as a handful of other great...

     Metal Night on Main street was a very special event put together by the bands playing, and the Main street Tavern in Monongahela. This event proved that the Mon Valley music scene is back and very much alive. Very special thank you to the tavern, the bands and all the faces, familiar or not who showed up.      First band to hit it hard was someone new to me, but that’s the...

  If you have a business page then you may know the struggles of taking the time to make a great post, only to find that it doesn’t get the response that you’d like. It can be frustrating to work on something you just know will get interactions, only to have it fall flat. Good news! It might not be your content but rather, when you’re posting it. In this article, I’ll be talking about some...

So please join us at “The Ice Mine” in Connelsville, PA on July 1st. Sam has put together an incredible event, mixing his graduation party with a free show, showcasing some of the best...

“Forsaken By Society” is at the top of their game right now! These Valley Boys have a few big name shows coming up! I’ll have these shows listed below. A few weeks ago, the Valley Boys opened for “Sworn In” and “Revenge Season”, with our brothers, “Speaking in Tongues”. Other local favorites “Nullity”, “Blair”, and “Flipswitch” came out to have fun too! This video from that show, is a small sample of what you could...

For going on forty years, Slayer have been a living tornado, an unstoppable natural godforce that eviscerates all in its path. No other band has been able to replicate their violent gestaltist energy in concert, and all one can do to experience it is to withstand it. On this, what is purported to be Slayer’s final tour, they brought along pesky New Yorkers Anthrax, Southern axe-murderers Lamb of God, burly California thrashers Testament, and blackened...

The progressive blackened death metal of Erie’s Bravura seemed somewhat out of place at the other night’s Rex Theater metal extravaganza, yet one would not expect to see Swedish power metal mainstays Hammerfall touring with grizzled, second-tier American thrashers Flotsam and Jetsam either, despite the latter playing what used to be known as power metal until the former, assembled originally by a group of Gothenburg melodic death technicians, revitalized and redefined the genre in the...

Brian Tatler, the lone original member of New Wave of British Metal legends Diamond Head, is a knight errant, a singular guitarist whose impact is still felt and heard through the music of platinum superstars and subterranean Merlins alike, and he’s been on a quest to prove that for many years with a band of merry adventurers tagging along. Wednesday night’s Warrendale stop was another sparsely attended gig for the band, their third in the...
