Alter the Design finds themselves heading in a direction with their sophomore release UNDIVIDED, due out December 11 2018. This hard rock band out of Pittsburgh delves into a more metal style that catches the listeners attention quickly. A short creative Intro and you are catapulted into a beautiful darkness of driven riffs and drum beats that that grip you. The vocals find a perfect match in the passion and tone of the slightly rough...

Me: We are here with Jordan from The Breathing Process. Start at the beginning. I know I’ve listened to some of your tunes, of course I’m a metalhead, so there’s that. Jordan: Awesome! Me: Good stuff. Really good stuff. Jordan: Thank you!  Me: You are very welcome! Tell us about the band. How did you guys get together? How did you guys get started? Jordan: Oh, Man!

Featured Video of the Week: SIKES and the New Violence – Whatever I Want – Genre: Hip Hop This week we’re deviating just a little bit… did you notice? Yes, this is a hip hop video, more than likely the only one you’re going to see here. So, why would a company that brings you Rock and Metal do this? Probably because this particular artist has a huge tie-in to the Metal genre. SIKES is the lead...

More than two months ago, intensely morbid, violent, and technical Toronto death metallers Tomb Mold branded the psyches of those who were fortunate, sturdy, and brave enough to attend Migration 2 over the course of their set. On a misty Monday in November, they returned to a nearly full house at Bloomfield’s Howler’s Coyote Café, slamming skulls into gravestones with funereal aplomb. Percussively impressive was skinsman/larynx Max Klebanoff, who was able to growl and rumble...

  There was a time when acts in the vein of Icarus Witch were the temporarily exiled aristocracy of the heavy metal scene. However, Icarus Witch are no nostalgia show. While paying tribute to the past in their singular way, they also look forward, blazing paths with the precision of lasers and the aplomb of a fireworks display. Icarus Witch are on their fifth album and fourth singer, current throat Andrew D’Cagna also moonlighting in...

Me: We are sitting here with some very delicious Mexican food after the gig with Unfinished Evolution, or at least three-fifths of it. We have Julia on vocals, Brandon on drums and Connor on guitar.  The other two band members, Pete and Logan, had other appointments unfortunately, so they missed all the fun.   It seems like every time I see you play live, it’s at the Smiling Moose so that must be your favorite...

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...

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.
