It's a rare occasion when something lands in my lap and commands that it skip the queue and go right into the player. It's even more of a rarity when I review said album so quickly after receiving it. For the long-awaited GOLD COBRA, the new album from LIMP BIZKIT exceptions have been made. When a band moves over 20 million records...
Woodstock '99 was something. Five years after Woodstock '94 celebrated the 25th anniversary of the original fest with "2 More Days of Peace & Music," Woodstock '99 moved the action to a new locale — Griffiss Air Force Base in upstate New York — for three days of music that became chaos. Woodstock 99: Peace, Love, and Rage is a new...
I distinctly remember cruising across Illinois and Indiana on a road trip listening to the Spice Girls' debut album, Spice on CD. Of course, this was 1996, so the CD player was run through my car stereo using a tape deck adapter. What I can't remember, specifically, is how the Spice Girls wound up in the mix between Sepultura's...

This October, the band will release PSYCHIC WARFARE through their own Weathermaker Music, their latest dozen-track sonic assault, and one...
On October 14th, SpectiCast and Tempest Films will bring FOREVER AND A DAY, a new documentary about the SCORPIONS, to theaters Nationwide for one-night only. With the band celebrating their 50th year in metal, this film follows the Scorpions on their ‘Final Sting’ dates - originally intended to be the band’s farewell tour - from Bangkok via Los Angeles to...
When it comes to Industrial Music, I like mine best with a certain level of crunch to the guitars - where the sonic differences between and man (instrumentation) and machine (electronica) blend to just the right level. At some point in the mid-late 90s, that's when that style peaked - a time when I'd be cranking bands like 16...
