Having caught their recent video for 'Soldiers,' Las Vegas band OTHERWISE wasn't exactly at the top of my 'must-listen' list. But, after a special request came in for me to give their new album TRUE LOVE NEVER DIES a spin, I figured it couldn't hurt. The problem is, that uncanny feeling of 'Haven't I heard this before?' OTHERWISE...
Well here's a surprise: the self-titled debut album from KILL DEVIL HILL is a pretty good record. In all honesty, I wasn't expecting much. Their name is over-used - having been slapped on at least one film, and recently there was that ILL BILL and DJ MUGGS collaboration called KILL DEVIL HILLS, not to mention an Australian group by...
It's been nearly 20 years since the VANS WARPED TOUR first rocked stages across North America, and in that time a number of video releases and 'concert films' have set out to document the experience. None has done a finer job than NO ROOM FOR ROCKSTARS, the new film from Director/Editor Parris Patton. Released in a one-night theatrical engagement...
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...
''I hate nostalgia,'' declares PRONG frontman Tommy Victor when discussing CARVED INTO STONE, the eighth full-length studio album to bear the band's name. ''But this record literally has  every strand of PRONG's DNA spliced together in a way that feels more exciting than it has in some time.'' While it's commonplace and cliche for bands to tell you how much...
Originally Published January 22, 2012 on Kik Axe Music.It's been nearly four years since MINISTRY performed what were then touted as their ''final'' live shows. Always a skeptic when it comes to bands calling it a day, I was one of those with the mindset of ''they'll be back,'' and while I was disappointed to have missed their three-night run here...

As a big fan of Vampires and Werewolves, I've long held the UNDERWORLD films as franchise that serves as a hearty slap in the face to fans of both. In fact, I hated the first one so much, that it partially inspired me to write DEATH WALKS THE STREETS in 2004. From all angles, I thought that both UNDERWORLD and it's sequel, UNDERWORLD:...
Bursting with both familiarity and freshness, WE DON'T KNOW ANY BETTER (out Jan. 14) marks the second full-length offering from Brooklyn quartet BLACK TAXI. There's a solid rock band at the core, but the multi-faceted instrumentation - executed with perfection - is where the band excels, pushing well beyond the stage and out onto the dancefloor. Synth permeates the mix, bringing...
When CONAN O'BRIEN got shafted by Jay Leno and NBC over his hosting duties for THE TONIGHT SHOW, he found himself at the end of a 22-year career with the network - and unable to appear on television per the terms of his exit. Rather than sit back and do nothing, O'Brien packed up and took his show on the road...
