Once upon a time the only way you could hear music was to be there as it was created. If you grew up in the early 2000’s you have pretty much had your choice of digital downloads and finding bands across the globe, but what was once seen as the ‘next best thing’ for the music industry soon created expected issues, and now live music is seeing a comeback. Artists used to struggle to find...

Texas has been a breeding ground for amazing talent (as it always has); and indie rock lads Black Hole Bears are no different. Having released their debut self titled EP earlier this year, the boys have put the pedal to the metal and hit the ground running. If you are looking for something rigid, experimental, and abrasive…..I’m here to inform you Black Hole Bears may not be the fix your looking for. If you’re looking...

Last Saturday night was a mosh of grindcore and death metal when Get Hip Records hosted Vomit Forth on their way back from Chicago Domination Fest. They were joined by Leprosy, E.F.6., and Feast on the Fallen that made for one bloody fantastic evening! Photography by Amanda Baker Vomit Forth Leprosy Feast on the Fallen E.F.6.

Something dark and sinister comes this way from the plains of Cleveland, Ohio. Doom metal enthusiasts Frayle have recently dropped their new release “Dead Inside” and are taking the genre by storm with their brand of dense, ambient groove. I’ll say it and get it out of the way: while Frayle is more than competent in their chosen genre, “Dead Inside” doesn’t reinvent the wheel by any means, BUT the band make up for it...

Find Your Muse(ic)/#findyourmuse Skippy Ickum – “Almost Famous” Today on Find Your Muse we look back at ” Almost Famous” by the infamous king of horrorcore, Skippy Ickum. Starting off with a somber hook, Ickum hypnotizes the listener before dragging them under with his barrage of technical bars and vulgar, yet introspective lyrics. Covering a wide array of topics from the hustle and grind of the starving artist to media censorship, “Almost Famous” hits hard...

On a night when many in Pittsburgh were attending Breaking Benjamin, I was at a small venue, Get Hip, for a DIY show with three bands, one stage, no genres. Sometimes you have to go back to the roots of where you felt the pull of music to have the best experiences. National shows are like the Wizard of Oz in his chamber with lights and smoke – but if you pull back the curtain...
