King Fowley is metal’s equivalent of a late-night creature-feature host or narrator of a old horror comic book. One can picture him spinning yarns from a moldy castle or abandoned mansion as he heartily laughs at your terror with rats crawling about his feet. Having been plying his trade for around 35 years now in bands such as October 31, Doomstone, and Abominog, Fowley’s primary act, Deceased, offered us Ghostly White in 2018, a ghoulish...

After last week’s round with Chip & the Charge Ups, we’re returning to smack you in the mouth with more heavy music. This week’s Find your Muse(ic) featured video brings about a couple of firsts. Homo Macabrus gets the distinction of being the first band from Greece that we have highlighted on First Angel Media, and this is my first time authoring a Find your Muse(ic) Feature. So please bear with me, while I gather...

Chip & The Charge Ups – Hard Rock/Power Pop – Pittsburgh, PA Video – “Good Riddance, Fallen Angel” Chip & The Charge Ups is a rather unique Rock band – and we’ve got the video to prove it. This week we’re stepping away from the overly heavy and hitting you with a Green Day/Poison Mash Up video. With Chip Di Monick at the helm this band has it’s roots in Hard Rock and Punk, but they...

Hailing from the 814, Erie Pennsylvania’s Human Delusion have just unleashed a leviathan of an album aptly titled “Depravity“. From the moment I hit play on the album’s intro track “Sentenced”, I knew I was gonna be in for a wild ride. Pennsylvania’s metal scene has been a breeding ground for amazing metal as of lately and these guys are no exception. “Delusion” harkens back to the familiar sounds of the early 00’s metalcore with a...

13 Saints – Rock/Punk – Pittsburgh Video: “New York Doll”   13 Saints is Rock with a twist of Punk and what they call Power Pop. Their original sound has a groove that just won’t quit. Often you’ll find people up and dancing and anyone who has heard them, remembers them. “New York Doll” just has this sexy beat from start to finish, so get ready to want to move! Throughout their music you can feel...

Redson – Hard Rock – Pittsburgh “Throwing Stones” Redson seems to be everywhere you look these days – and that makes sense because when they hit the stage they give their all! These guys are hard rock and have a slightly dark twist with the vocals in their video ‘Throwing Stones’. This band has created a song about bullying, a needed message in today’s world. A rather cool take on a mix of live and produced video...

Horehound vocalist Shy Kennedy has become quite the mogul of the Pittsburgh metal scene, particularly in its vibrant doom corner, where she holds court not only as a performer but as an organizer of the Descendants of Crom festival and the owner of the interesting Blackseed Records, a label that is a mission for her as opposed to a mere business venture. Kennedy and her bandmates are in rapturous love with all sounds down-bred from...

Despite his youth, Serg Streltsov is a veteran of the Pittsburgh metal scene and a survivor having come to the United States from Ukraine. After sharpening his claws in bands such as Dreadeth, Incinerate Creation, Bloodwraith, Haxxan, and even gory death metal pioneers Necrophagia, Streltsov has brought us something new and more intimate in Esoterica, the first offering from Automb. With another even more battle-scarred member in drummer Scott Fuller, who has seen combat within...

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.
