Pittsburgh has apparently become another home to Martin’s Ferry, Ohio’s deft doom-rocking power trio Brimstone Coven. This past Saturday night was yet another successful stand for these groovy, Mephistophelean mischief makers of melody. Humorous stage banter between polymath bassist Andrew D’Cagna and guitar hitman Corey Roth, their music gluing Black to Blue playfully, like delinquents papering suburban homes. Songs such as “Earth and Ocean,” new, unrecorded song “The Inferno,” back catalogue classics “The Grave” and...

On this week’s Find You Muse(ic) we have groove masters Paradigm and their lyric video “Die Trying“. With sounds akin to that of Pantera and Machine Head, “Die Trying” proves to be a heavy hitter packed with fantastic riffs that serves as a tribute to our men and women in the armed forces.

Wicked Earth – “Light the Shadow” “Light The Shadow is about the Spirit of 1776. A modern interpretation is the awakening of men to the political powers that be, that doesn’t necessarily have our best interests at heart. This song represents spreading the message of freedom and keeping that fire of liberty alive in us, so that we may endure in this great country, recognizing when the elite are trying to own us through their...

Arguably one of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s heaviest, Post Mortal Posession have just released their brand new single “Gates of Lyssa” exclusively through Slam Worldwide and boy, is it a grinding barrage of Slam and Brutal Death Metal. If Waking the Cadaver and Embryonic Devourment had invested in modern recording production, you would get a glimpse of what we have in “Gates of Lyssa”. I closed my mind while I let Post Mortal Possession bash my head...

On this week’s Find Your Muse(ic) we have repeat offenders The Fading Light. The Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania based Indie rockers just dropped a brand new video for their single “Ten Years” and we couldn’t be more excited to share it! “Ten Years” rocks with the best parts of 90’s radio such as The Goo Goo Dolls, Tonic, Sister Hazel, and even Third Eye Blind for a good measure. Emotional acoustic arrangements  and melodic interplay lay the...

We have a very special Find Your Muse(ic) this week over here at FAM. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania based guitarist Andy Oddo has been rather busy as of late and well…..everywhere to be frank. Having recently joined local Alternative Metal titans Transcendance and with his other project Victoria Fire picking up steam rather quickly, it goes without saying the music is just flowing from the man. While all of this is excellent (and believe me it is),...

On this week’s Find Your Muse(ic) we have Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Hip Hop artist Lo and his single “One Up“. Featuring a melodic back drop and a visceral rhyme scheme, Lo holds nothing back as he exercises his demons and spills his guts about his past and battle with depression. For as much angst that hangs in the atmosphere of this gigantic track, Lo manages to somehow show that there is a light at the end...

On this week’s “A Look at the Lyrics” we learn the very personal meaning behind Awake from A Common Crown.  I spoke with front woman Jennifer Craven and she describes the song being about a 3 day bender and how she overcame the demons pulling her into the darkness.  Listen along to the lyric video and pick up a copy of their new CD “The Reckoning” When I was in high school I was some...

Kittanning, Pennsylvania based rock outfit A Common Crown have been pretty busy as of late, dropping their new single “Awake” recently and slating to release their upcoming album The Reckoning this weekend. Their rise in the Pittsburgh scene has been somewhat of a slow burner, having really branched out within the last year and establishing themselves as a force to be reckoned with (no pun intended). Having already started with top notch musicians; they have...

On this week’s Find Your Muse(ic) we have Pittsburgh based Power Metal outfit Iron Brigade and their debut single “Out of the Urn“. Featuring a blistering gallop and melodic lead guitars, Iron Brigade charge through unabashed with technical flair and melodic gusto. The band sets the perfect backdrop for singer Jared Carns to lead the way with his soulful bravado in a rather commanding and powerful vocal performance. I’ve been waiting a long time to...

On this week’s “A Look at the Lyrics” we learn the very in depth meaning behind the song from Pittsburgh rock veterans After The Fall- “New S.A.”.  Read what lead singer Doug has to say about their new song and watch the lyric video.  Show some love, leave a comment and let us know what you think. “New S.A.” is a song about where we are as a country at this point in time.  Our...

On this week’s “Find your Muse(ic)” we have Progressive Metal shredders Viking Guitar and their homage to the video game classic Legend of Zelda! With an excellent play through video, we see the band do what they do best with ease and finesse: shred that 7 string thing! With the progressive and technical tendencies of similar bands such as Blotted Science and the smooth delivery of guitarist Steve Van in his prime, Viking Guitar waste...

The Fading Light “In the Morning” This is a song I wrote about someone in my life who would constantly disparage themselves, they would always seek assurance that I thought they were pretty, always refer to themselves as ugly, and even give me push back when I said I thought they were beautiful. It was frustrating, to say the least, to try to express to someone that you think they’re wonderful only to be met...

The ground was shaking in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on the night on January 11th at Cattivo. Twist of Fate Productions rang in the new year with one banger of a show that surely marks one of the best line-ups the company has put together in its short but prolific existence. To be point blank, if you missed this show, you missed something magical. Obviously it’s winter (despite the lack of snow and being handed copious amounts...

Within the last couple of years there has been a strong resurgence of Stoner and Doom Metal within the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania scene. Today we are going to take a look at new kids on the block Makeshift Urn with their debut Self-Titled EP. To start off, Makeshift Urn was a rather refreshing listen. I dabble within the genre of Stoner Metal every now and then when I get the itch, but let’s face it, if...
