A long, long time ago I can still remember how The forums used to make me smile And I knew if he had a chance Ramsey could showcase his talents And maybe we’d be jammin’ for a while… I’m not really sure what bastardizing Don McLean lyrics has to do with anything, but as a […]

My Metallica experience went something like this: I downloaded St. Anger on a whim in my first year of university, listened to them for the first time, and was blown away by how awesome it was (before I continue any further let me assure you that I know much better now). I then went on to […]

“Anger and frustration can be really great vehicles to propel momentum and energy in music,” confesses Erik Wunder. He’s done precisely that with his two seemingly dissimilar projects. The sprawling progressive black metal of Cobalt and the potent dark Americana of Man’s Gin may occupy two different sonic spheres, yet they share the same sense […]


Alright, folks, listen up, because I’ve got a cutting-edge pop music opinion for you all to devour and regurgitate elsewhere: Ariana Grande is awesome. She only has real two singles to her name: “The Way,” catchy and vibrant but with a bearable-if-you-sorta-just-ignore-him set of verses from Mac Miller, and “Baby I,” not completely new but […]


Antlered Man won me over last year with their debut full-length Giftes Parts 1 & 2. The London four-piece has an uncanny knack for combining dexterous heavy rock with decidedly Eastern melodicism. Their music has been likened to System Of A Down, Mr. Bungle and Future Of The Left, capitalizing on creativity rather than stale […]


Let me make one thing absolutely clear: the average Malaysian music lover hasn’t been feted like this in a long, long time, and we probably have the unlikeliest of heroes to thank for it. The recent launch of “Visit Malaysia Year 2014” by the deeply unpopular ruling coalition, in addition to the designation of 2013 […]


A favorite thing of mine to do when listening to albums is to mentally track along with the drums, often using my steering wheel as a makeshift snare and hi-hat and the gas pedal as my bass (my ’94 Accord goes). Being the cockmaster that I am, I generally believe I can play along to […]

After hearing about the possibility of a new No-Man record coming up soon, I contacted Tim Bowness (singer, songwriter) to ask him about his latest projects, personal favorites and the new album in the works. For those unaccustomed to Bowness’ discography, he has released (besides No-Man of course, which started as a main project all […]

Amanda Shires – Down Fell The Doves (Lightning Rod Rec.) Anna Rose – Behold A Pale Horse (White Pony Records) Asking Alexandria – From Death […]


For a song about the consequences of car use, “Go Green” sure doesn’t make it any easier for you to hop on your bike instead. With a slick guitar slide providing the perfect in, Buddy Peace’s wonderful summer-cool drum loop gives Prolyphic a great platform to make you feel guilty for wanting to play his […]


Here’s a list of major new releases for the week of July 30, 2013. Please feel free to request reviews for any of the following albums from staff or contributors.

Swedish outfit Goatess may have just released their debut album on Svart Records, but they’re all experienced musicians. Most notably, vocalist Chritus Linderson has made a name for himself, performing with such renowned doom metal acts as Saint Vitus and Lord Vicar. The eponymous full-length release from Goatess fuses the meandering tempo of doom metal […]


Things have been rather busy lately for French groove/industrial metallers Dagoba, who released their fifth studio album, ominously titled Post Mortem Nihil Est, on June 14. With the promotion process for the new record (which by the way is garnering rave reviews across the globe and deservedly so – it’s one of the most refreshing […]
