If WEEZER's recent release HURLEY was supposed to be a throwback to the band's 1990's glory days, then DEATH TO FALSE METAL just might be the time machine project that inspired it. Not a traditional "from the vaults" collection of unreleased tracks that the band recorded during their stay at Geffen Records, the band took the basic outline for 10...
The thing about a DANZIG record that happens to be both beautiful, and problematic, is that every Danzig record sounds like a Danzig record. Regardless of which players happen to be in the studio or on the stage with Danzig at any given time, they always seem to have little-to-no influence in the overall sound of the band. On their...
Vampires have been very good to G TOM MAC over the years. With the cult status of his LOST BOYS anthem Cry Little Sister keeping Gerard McMann forever fresh in the minds of fangbangers and beyond (he even recorded a re-vamped bluesy, TRUE BLOOD 'swamp version' in 2010), it always seems as if there's an inviting form of darkness...
Has it been 10 years already? It's hard to imagine, but I guess it has. When MAROON 5 first burst onto the scene with their debut album, SONGS ABOUT JANE in 2002, I was managing a Sam Goody store and was at the forefront of the musical battlefield, introducing the masses to new sounds on a weekly basis. In-between...
Few (if any) radio shows could ever claim to challenge the legendary status of the late John Peel's THE PEEL SESSIONS on the BBC's Radio 1. Having first discovered them myself while sifting through the import CD racks of several long-gone indie record shops throughout the midwest, these little gems were live performances from some of rocks biggest names...
Gather 'round the fire true believers, because right now you're about to hear a tale of a legendary beast from the land of Maryland. Yes indeed, that beast is CLUTCH, and they've returned once more to carry a torch and raise a flag for the legions of ears that can only have their sonic thirst quenched by the sounds...
TRENT REZNOR aka NINE INCH NAILS has never sounded better, as evident in the recent reissue of his 1989 debut PRETTY HATE MACHINE. Released this past November through the Bicycle Music Company/UMe after a long process of tracking down who owned the rights to what, the landmark debut from NINE INCH NAILS has been remastered from the original tapes...
For the past few months, I've been getting Los Angeles rockers RIVAL SONS tossed in front of me constantly. It seems every few years we get someone that's going to usher in a new era of 60's/70's rock stylings (WOLFMOTHER, anyone?) and it just never seems to happen. There's some bands that are great at what they do, but...
Easily one of the most iconic albums in the history of rock music, BLIZZARD OF OZZ not only established OZZY OSBOURNE as a force capable of moving beyond the mighty shadow of BLACK SABBATH, but set the stage for heavy music to come. The playing of guitar virtuoso RANDY RHOADS would become instantly recognizable, inspiring shredders to follow, and while the...
On their latest album, ALL AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, Oklahoma rockers HINDER have delivered the latest entry into the resurgence of booze-drenched, tunes about sex, drugs, and rock n roll. With their recent "viral" clip for "Put That Record On," it was made quite clear that the band would be paying homage to their rock heroes, but in question was how good a...
