Heads old and young were bobbing blissfully on a wet, unseasonably chilly Monday evening in Baldwin, a quiet Pittsburgh suburb, to the tunes of progressive, power, and thrash, Metal Church leading the brigade with their fusion of all. Ellwood City’s spray paint vandals Whitethrash cast the first rock with a sardonic and fun set of Nuclear Assault/S.O.D. cherrybomb worship that sufficiently stoked appetites. Locals Storm Dragon were hampered a bit by a bad mix, but...


Like your metal with a touch of ambience and proggy djent? Maybe some mentally deranged and psychotic vocals served on the side? New Chicago based outfit “Psithurism” have just released their debut EP and it might just be the flavor your looking for……. The guys waste little to no time getting down to what they are all about. Djent flavored metalcore with just the right amount of technical flair, Psithurism have certainly produced a tasty...


Today, I sat down with DiGregorio brainchild & lead guitarist Suzanne DeCree to find out about her history and vision for DiGregorio’s future: Denman: How long have you been playing guitar? Suzanne: Oh dear Lord! It will be 43 years this year. I started noodling with my dad’s old classical guitar when I was 6. But if we’re talking when I seriously started playing….that would be 10 years later. Denman: Do you play any other...


Discontent with the world around you? Feel like opening up a can of whoop ass? Well good news, Pittsburgh metal act Conflict Cycle have just the soundtrack for your pent up aggression. The kings of groove are back and have recently dropped their sophomore album Dark Days Ahead. Mixing southern metal riffs and metalcore (think Hellyeah, Pantera, and He is Legend), Dark Days Ahead doesn’t stray far from the beaten path, but they keep you...


Coming from across the pond in Germany, Caynug has recently dropped a mammoth of an album titled “Mental Junkyard”. With amazing production and stellar songwriting spanning across multiple genres, “Mental Junkyard” is another notch in the belt of an already excellent catalog for Caynug. “Mental Junkyard” plays out like a soundtrack in the mind of the mentally unstable. The album is best served to be played from front to back to fully appreciate the journey....


An amazing time was had by all when the Winter Blackout: The Yeti Strikes Back tour stopped at the Rex Theater recently. Good times and great freaking music but who would have thought it would be anything less with bands like The Expendables, BALLYHOO!, Kash’d Out, Keystone Vibe, and Amplified.!! This tour still has dates coming so be sure to see when they’re coming to a stage near you! Event Dates Below – check out...


Immolation are a band I haven’t always been keen on, their perpetual blastbeat downpour being somewhat impenetrable to me as a man who prefers his death metal melodic, tricky, and with a sense of groove. Yet upon a revisitation of Immolation’s catalogue, particularly more recent albums such as Atonement, I found many connectable and intelligent moments to latch onto, more so than I had previously. Beginning to feel as if I were a fighter ducking...


9 Stitch Method Black Sheep (2019 Single) There’s something a little different about 9 Stitch Method.This insanely full sound is brought to you by just two men who take their joint creativity to new levels in recorded music and live shows. Constantly developing everything they have done, these guys have pushed themselves to build their name and bring professional music to their fans… and they’re getting noticed for their hard work. Their latest single “Black...

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.
