The Spill Canvas are foreign to my ears. I am not used to their style of music, nor have I heard much about them, although I have heard the name thrown around over and over again. I have heard how they have some exceptional music, I have heard that they have the possibility to be something great. Yet listening to…
Dark Shades of Blue (08.19.2008)
Kingdom Of Might (01.06.2009)
In Pursuit Of Tomorrow (06.24.2008)
The Road Less Traveled (01.06.2009)
This comp sells for less than $10, and the proceeds go to a great cause, so I really shouldn’t be slagging it. I own three other volumes of the Take Action! series, and while they all have their hits and misses, Volume 7 offers a lot more of the latter than I’d have liked.

Fake Hellos, Real Goodbyes (11.11.2008)
The new release from Rise Against, Appeal To Reason, reads like a social commentary on the state of affairs in the world. Tackling subjects such as global warming, the war in Iraq and the economy the band offers up a vicious tirade against a majority of the current events going on all around us.

Still Remains are back, and with a killer album. Hailing from Grand Rapids, Michigan, this metalcore power house wants to bring nothing but real metalcore (not any of that pussy shit) to the fold. Even though the band has only been around for 5 or 6 years, their reputation has grown from a small band, to that of a HUGE act, performing…
National Anthem of Nowhere (03.06.2007)
Everything Is Always Still Happening (09.09.2008)
Sliding Bend Sinister’s Stories Of Brothers, Tales Of Lovers into the car stereo, I was greeted by what’s since become one of my favourite songs of 2008. So much did I enjoy “The News” that I couldn’t actually get through the whole record on my first few attempts as I’d find myself constantly starting it over to be greeted by the chirping birds and soothing whistling that would soon explode into the Vancouver-based band’s signature piano-driven upbeat indie rock.
