Featured Video by:  Jakethehawk – Hard Rock/Mixed – Pittsburgh, Pa Jakethehawk is a little bit of a mixed bag. Recently this rock genre band blew away the crowd at a weekend long Metal Fest “Descendants of Crom”. They bring fire and a passionate sound with a dark edge, and would be a welcome addition to any show or playlist. They have a brand new release “To Build A Fire” coming out this month with a Release Party to kick it...

Featured Video of the Week: NeverWake – Hard Rock/Metal  – Pittsburgh, Pa NeverWake just released this video two days ago, so this is a definite ‘Hot off the press’ item! A single from their upcoming EP release Misguided,  Are You in There, has something familiar buried in the music, but it’s a more developed and slightly new direction for this band. These guys aren’t just hometown favorites. Recent shows have included Nashville, their annual benefit for Children’s Hospital, The...

Featured Video of the Week: Homicide Black – Heavy Metal – Pittsburgh, Pa This weeks featured video is from Homicide Black – their third release from the brand new EP The Road to Hell.  Usually known for lyrical storytelling just as much as their crushing metal, We Will Remain shows the diversity of these multi-talented professionals. This is relaxed, softer, yet still dark and beautiful. This style of video allows the music to take center stage. Don’t be fooled, these...

We’ve been asked, “How do you decide what bands to run or videos to use?”. Starting with this weeks video we’re going to try to give you a little background. The videos we use aren’t always the newest but they mean something to us. These aren’t random bands, they’re bands that we have found ourselves and have something that draws us to them. Each staff member has a say in who gets picked and we’re...

Shrouded in Neglect  is this weeks staff pick, coming to you from Pittsburgh, PA. They are a self proclaimed “Punch You in the Face Metal” band who has been bringing neck breaking, head banging, stage shredding metal to all types of stages and have opened for some rather big names. They released their debut EP, “The Haunting”, in 2014 and have followed it up with the recent release of “Kill All Humans”. This five piece brings...

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.
