Jo Below, a melodic hard rock band based in Helsinki, Finland, recently released a brand new single, “I Confess” from their upcoming album, No Control. Inverse Records plans to release the album on April 16, 2021, and will include other songs, such as the released single “Ms. Death”. Just as “Ms. Death”, “I Confess” uses a style similar to Stone Sour, Halestorm, and Paramore with heavy low- tuned guitar riffs and catchy vocal hooks. The...

Don’t ever let Craig Douglas of Neonach, into your kitchen, cause he’ll mess with your shit. You’re there, desperately trying to muster your entry for the Great British Bake-Off, ignoring the fact that there’s literally an ocean between you and your chances, and in waltzes Craig, and he just starts messing with your shit; cause that’s what Craig Douglas does; he messes with shit. He takes things, that others may not necessarily think of as...

Altin Gün – Yol. So, you remember when you first discovered World Music? Perhaps it was something that Peter Gabriel had gotten behind in the early 90’s. You bought a few things with WOMAD written on them, then you realized you were so far behind the curve, and there was so much of it out there; all these other countries had their own music scenes, and you didn’t know what anyone was saying on the...

Post Profit

When I do a music review, I will listen the song dozens of times, read the lyrics and then listen to it dozens of tunes again. After I have an idea of what I am going to write, I will start my review. Post Profit’s new release “When You Think It’s Right” changed all of that. I was starting my review and was watching the video before including it in the review when I knew...

Pittsburgh natives “Royal Honey” release “Cut N Run”, the long awaited new single that rocks, rolls, rattles and shakes. Instantly you’re brought into their classic sound; the steel city grit and attitude fueled riffs and groovy, busy bass lines accompanied by ripping Bon Scott-esque vocals. The verses groove and crank a tube amp distortion that takes you back to the late 70’s and early 80’s, and the chorus slides into this singable, fist raising, howling...

Endscape

Social media is something that has many good things like keeping in touch with people that we probably would not have otherwise. Conversely there is a dark side that is not discussed quite as much. You hear occasionally about people being cyber bullied. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen two people sitting at the same table not talking but engrossed in what’s happening on their phones. Endscape’s new release “Validate Me” addresses...

                Everture, an overwhelmingly amazing, melodic, metal band from Finland, is done with their two year project, debut album, “Emerge”! The record was set to be released on March 19th of this year (2021). This five piece Finnish band has hardcore metal qualities, that are rooted in harmonious energy. The band took form back in 2015, consisting of Matti Hautakangas as main axe man, Oskari Niskala rocking the back up...

Slam Band and Sam

When I think of people looking to the heavens for inspiration, it’s generally looking for a higher power’s help. But in the case of Slam Band and Sam, their new release “Black Hole” was literally inspired by NASA’s photos of a black hole taken in 2019. The song transitioned from being about a celestial object to coping with difficult times. Slam Band and Sam originated in 2018 as a five-piece band. They originally were made up...

With February coming to a close, Winter’s Descent released “Fortune“, a heavy hitting, triumphant, and bold new single. Opening with a time-tested fast palm muting guitar riff, “Fortune” immediately throws you into your seat while you bang your head and pump your fist. It’s verses are filled with poetic descriptions of an overtaking, long overdue. The use of multiple styles of vocals from gritty to clean vocals, and from chants to screams, keep the song...

Horrorcore has been a staple genre in the underground music scene for well over 20 years now and spans multiple styles of music from Hip-Hop to Metal and everywhere in-between, but no one is doing it quite like Texan native Thommy Nekro the Solanum. Blood, stitches, chainsaws and rotting corpses are just surface layer to this artists ability to convey a scene of mass disturbance and terror. Lyrically the songs have your typical elements of murder...

Blasting into the speakers of their listeners, Pittsburgh area natives NeverWake release a single entitled “Hang and Choke” with a follow up EP release. From first listen, I knew this band was a force to be reckoned with – powerful riffs, hearty vocals and harmonies, driving percussion, and lyrics that emanate from a personal chasm. They have many of the tools that set themselves apart from the sea of content available to the masses. Concentrating...

Hailing from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, God Hates Unicorns is here to introduce us to their sleazy brand of rock with their debut album No Gloryholes In Heaven. The album contains ten tracks with an additional two bonus tracks; their quirky cover of “Man I Feel Like A Woman” and bombastic “Chipped Ma’am“, and was produced with the assistance of Razorblade Recordings. God Hates Unicorns is comprised of six members and was formed in 2014 by vocalist,...

J.R.R. Tolkien wrote what is arguably the most famous and well known fantasy series in known history called The Lord of the Rings. More recently famous is the movie adaptation by Peter Jackson that ignited a culture all its own. Everything from cosplays to famous movie quotes known to nearly every household across the known world. Entire bands and musicians even pay homage with their own take on the series in song. One of those...

Unassumingly releasing their very first cassette album (its only physical format so far) on Devil’s Night 2020, Vicious Blade, a new Pittsburgh death/thrash/crust project featuring members of Tartarus, Commit Suicide, and Complete Failure, deals swiftly and brutally with poseurs in blood-hungry Napalm Death-meets-Midnight fashion. Consisting of five brief tracks totaling over just thirteen minutes, this self-titled debut is punctuated by the frightening roar of Clarissa Badini and the deft guitarwork of Jeff Ellsworth and Erik...

Following their Christmas release of the single “Corpse Bride“, Third Realm has finally released the music video for the track, courtesy of their label darkTunes Music Group. Third Realm describes their sound as Bipolar Pop, which I can definitely hear that in the new single. From start to finish, this song keeps you moving with roaring guitars, pumping drum track, and a catchy chorus. It’s a different sound but still fun little tune to dance...
