    A new contender in the black metal community has emerged from the depths of hell named Horse Drawn. When this was given to me, I was quite excited as I was on night shift. Listening and taking notes on this demo sampler was gonna carry me the rest of the night and boy was I in for a treat.        Horse Drawn have recently dropped their sampler Nonbeliever in preparation for their upcoming album. The band...

#findyourmuse Supertired – Sunday This week on Find Your Muse we are bringing you Supertired’s new single Sunday. Ranging from various styles of emo, indie, and pop; Sunday offers many arrays of emotion in their most timid form. There is a certain emotional duality that comes with Supertired’s brand of laid back emo-pop and this single is no exception. On the surface the listener is met with a good times, good vibes attitude while depression...

This week’s Find Your Muse(ic) we present you with California one man power act Divine Era and his new video “Vanity of Vanities”. Divine Era offers us a dense slab of groove metal very akin to the likes of Pantera and Canadian metalcore act Threat Signal that will keep you rocking for days. The song features an almost proggy pull off/tapping riff that serves as the epicenter of the song while it’s thrashing chugs fill...

It is no surprise that I have been seeing the band Ignition Point pop up more and more lately. With an energetic live show and a knack for metalcore tendencies, the band are sure to be a hit with the Pittsburgh metal scene as they grow. I’ve always considered these guys a sort of hidden gem, as they have some time under their belts. With an album like “Natural Causes”, it evades me why they...

As Descendants of Crom approaches not far off in the distance I can hear a rumble and see a fog descending. It’s a rumble that shakes the earth beneath my feet and has an unsettling vibe about it. It’s a dark fog that smells of whiskey and cheap cigarettes; thick and dense with a whole lot of attitude….and my friends I’m here to say that disturbance of the senses is Baltimore stoner rock outfit Foghound...

Music truly is an amazing thing. You can express the same emotion within the construct of various sounds and moods. You can take an expression and blow it out of the water to blistering heights and volumes or pull it back to a quiet whisper to the get the same point across. Singapore screamo/emoviolence act Bethari opt the extreme measure on their newest split, proving very quickly this isn’t your standard Hot Topic/mallcore screamo affair….....

It’s amazing how an idea can be born out of nothing. It’s amazing how that idea can begin to grow and prosper given the right amount of work ethic and dedication. Often times when this happens, time evades us as we become busy with progression and losing sight of all we have accomplished along the way. Every now and then it is essential to pause, take a step back, and see where you are now...

New doom/stoner punks Coma are an emerging entity in the Pittsburgh Doom Metal scene. Having released their debut Ep “Saturnalian” back in the yesteryear known as 2018, the band have been busy writing a new album and crushing stages across the tri-state area. With a punishing Ep like “Saturnalian“, its plain as day why Coma will be at this year’s Descendants of Crom Festival…… “Saturnalian” struts a little faster than the modern doom affair, hanging tight...

Pittsburgh “Brown Note” architects, Aspirant, have been taking over the Pittsburgh hardcore scene as of late. You would be hard pressed to find a recent show flier that doesn’t have their logo plastered on it; with the release of their debut Ep “Defeatist”, I don’t see this trio of panic chord enthusiasts slowing down anytime soon. “Defeatist” plays out almost as a time capsule over the last two decades, taking me back to the days...

Often times when the metal genre is mentioned, the state of Ohio comes to mind. Having a rich metal scene featuring bands like Mushroomhead, Affiance, and A Killer’s Confession to name a few; I have a funny suspicion it won’t be long before Cleveland’s Pillars will be amongst those ranks. The band just released their split Ep with “Wallcreeper” and are quickly proving they are a force to be reckoned with. The sound Pillars belts...

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania art rock quintet Working Breed are about to unleash their debut album “Hieroglyphica”. With their diverse and eclectic sound, the band plans to hit the stage hard and heavy Saturday, August 24th in support of their blood, sweat, and tears. Let’s make this clear, upon a passing glance “Hieroglyphica” sounds and gleams like a top 40 alternative album, but below the surface lies many complex layers that shift and sway seamlessly. Imagine this:...

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...

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...

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...
