Heavy Metal Prey for Nothing Release Kivshan

When the heavy metal band Prey for Nothing happened upon my computer screen, I was immediately hooked on the name alone.

Smiling in the Suffering – A Tantalizing New EP from Traverse the Abyss

I’d heard OF Traverse the Abyss before but I’d never HEARD them, so when the powers that be over at FAM told me to check ‘em out I was delighted to oblige. Based out of Scranton, PA (home of The Office, I bet no one’s ever mentioned that before) they started in the scene in 2016….

Brady Novotny “Redemption’s Cry” – A Look at the Lyrics

  The story behind Redemption’s Cry is kind of a mysterious one. I remember that it was a warm September evening. I went down to my studio to just play my guitar. I really just wanted to play and not to write, but somehow this song was ready to be birthed. When the baby is…
