Something sludgy comes this way from Kingston, New York. Stoner rock giants Geezer have dropped their newest Ep “Spiral Fires” to infect the masses with their brand of cosmic doom. So grab your closest pair of headphones, turn off the lights, and immerse yourself in the sonic journey that awaits you. “Spiral Fires” is an amalgamation of various sounds and influences from the past that meld together to make Geezer. Take the psychedelic tinge of...

Vetis The Invitation From the woods of West Virginia, horror metal juggernauts Vetis have emerged to haunt your dreams with their newest sonic assault “The Invitation”. This album is a must have for any metal fan, playing out like a walk in the woods at night with that suspicious feeling something or someone is watching you. Without a doubt, the shrieks and sounds that are heard on “The Invitation” are ones we have all heard...

Yeah, we know Metal is or should be about  anti-authoritarianism and whatnot, but one can be renegade without acting like a heel. What would Wolverine do? Think about it. Shows should be fun, and ruining another metal fan’s night ain’t fun or cool. Here’s a few guidelines I think metalheads could afford to follow. Rule #1 of Metal Concertgoing: Be nice and considerate. Don’t harass or attempt to injure people for whatever reason. Rule #2...

North Carolinians Corrosion of Conformity are seemingly in the midst of a revival since riff-dealing madman Pepper Keenan rejoined the band in 2014 and have arguably been making records that are even better than their 90’s classics, one of which, Deliverance, marks its 25th anniversary this year. And their set at Mr. Smalls on a slushy Thursday evening with a sludgeoning, stoning, doomstomping threesome in Crowbar, The Obsessed, and relative upstarts Mothership was amply representative...

DoDriver Location: New York, USA Video: DoDriver European 2017 Tour Set to the tune of their single It Feels Good to be Home, DoDriver highlights their European Tour in this fun, full length video. These guys have been all over the United States as well, from the famous Whisky A-Go-Go in Las Angeles, Ca to Pittsburgh, Pa. I saw them for the first time, live on the Hard Rock Cafe stage and had to stop a conversation to...

Having caught Thunderbird Divine at last year’s second annual Descendants of Crom festival, I was immediately taken by their Kyuss/Clutch/Monster Magnet/Led Zeppelin/Fu Manchu worship and engaging band leader Erik Caplan’s innovative use of the theremin, a lesser-known instrument that is finding its way back into vogue in heavy music circles (see also Pittsburgh’s Pyrithe). I had thought of interviewing Mr. Caplan about the album. https://thunderbirddivine.bandcamp.com/ But I honestly couldn’t think of anything substantial to ask...

Vetis – Doomcore/Horror Metal Location: West Virginia, USA Video: “The Witch”   Vetis ended 2018 by releasing their new album The Invitation in December and… just wow. I recommend checking out the entire album because this is pretty remarkable. For their genre, they don’t let themselves become stuck in what is traditional. The Witch is a great video for your first introduction to this band. A single off the new album it takes you on a trip through beauty before dropping you...

In anticipation of their long awaited album release, The Art of Burning Bridges took the stage like a squad of storm troopers this past Saturday night and practically blew the doors off the place! Melodic vocals soared over tasty hard rock riffs as Patrick Rominelli’s haunting voice captivated the room. If you haven’t heard of The Art of Burning Bridges, you are depriving yourself. This talented three-piece delivers their set with the flawless execution of a...

Thin Lizzy, despite only having one album go gold in the United States through the power of two enduring radio hits, continue to be a tremendously influential act decades after they disbanded and their seminal frontman, Phil Lynott, passed away. There’s been some controversy over the band reforming under the Thin Lizzy name in recent years and with a new one boasting original material in Black Star Riders. But none of that mattered this evening...

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.
