God Dethroned is a Dutch Death Metal band. They originally formed back in 1990, and recorded a demo by 1992. Soon afterwards, the band signed with German metal label, Shark. Once signed onto Shark, the band recorded their first album, The Christhunt, which didn’t do so hot in the standings. The band then called a…

Named for Civ’s record of the same name, Set Your Goals was dubbed by Alternative Press’ Tim Karan as “New Found Glory on eight cans of Red Bull.” That reference alone made me curious, so when I had the opportunity to review their latest album, Mutiny!, I jumped at the chance. Thankfully, I was not disappointed.

The Marble Index. Sound familiar? The name, which originated from a solo record by former Velvet Underground chanteuse, Nico, has now resurrected in the form of a durable trio with something to prove - they are here to stay! The Marble Index is a three-piece sensation from the unlikely Steel Town - Hamilton Ontario.

It’s a strange phenomenon, but there seems to be something special about bands that only stay together for a short span. Take for instance The Beatles or Led Zeppelin, two of rock and roll’s greatest ever groups and they each lasted only one decade. Nirvana, the most popular rock band of the 1990s, lasted only about seven years before the band split up...

Moneen is one of those bands who are known for their phenomenal underground success, hitting up big tours, energetic stage presence and their latest piece of work, The Red Tree. What struck me instantly are the intense harmonies on the album; sonically brilliant! What they are known for on the stage is now compacted neatly in The Red Tree.

Hamilton, Ontario is definitely the home one of the best metal bands in Canada (and the world) today. That band is none other then Threat Signal. Let me tell you right off the bat these guys fucking rock harder then most bands out there. And what’s even cooler is that they still love to play small gigs in little venues even though they are on a huge label like Nuclear Blast.

Death metal is a widely known genre of metal, mainly originating from countries such as Sweden and Finland. The most hardcore and brutal death metal hails from these two countries. Hammerfall, one of these such groups, have released seven full length albums, Threshold being the seventh, and newest. The band consists of Joacim Cans…

Goatwhore is a black metal band from New Orleans, LA originally started as a side-project while Acid Bath was taking a break. In 1997, once Acid Bath broke up (due to the death of the bass player) the band dedicated more time to Goatwhore and became a four piece black metal band. The band consists of Sammy Duet (Guitars/Vocals), Ben Falgoust…

This is probably one of the heaviest woman-fronted bands that I've ever heard. It's always nice to see a girl that can out scream a guy; most of the time guys tend to think they’re better then everyone else, but in this case I think not! Bands like Kittie and Splatter don’t have shit on Walls Of Jericho, so sit back and read this ‘cause…

Yay! More metal to be unleashed into the world! A lot of people are probably thinking “Oh joy... more music that sounds the same.” As my mother would say. But this band isn’t like all the rest of the other bands. The band has a unique sound that can be easily distinguished from other artists. Formed in 2003, from the depths of…

After a five year absence, and not to mention a split with their record label, Deadsy are back with their newest CD Phantasmagore. The band is fronted by Elijah Blue, the son of Cher and rocker Gregg Allman. The band’s sound is very sharp, yet catchy and boasts a dark atmosphere with fuzzy/crunchy guitars and amazing synthesizers.

It isn’t very often that many people listen to a band that actually cares about the music. A lot of bands sell out for the money, or give in to drugs and just don’t give a shit anymore. Kryterium is the exact opposite. They’re all about the music, loud and heavy music at that. They also have a soft spot for medical causes.

The world is full of unique bands with their own edge and attitude, but Angel Blake adds an entirely new definition to “unique.” The band itself is one man, and one man only, Marko Tervonen. Now while Marko would have liked to do the vocals, he couldn’t and got his buddy Tony Jelencovich of Transport League to do them; and with that…

Now I know a lot of music fans are probably getting tired of all the Metalcore bands out today, but Bullet For My Valentine is one of those bands that you need to check out. Straight out of Bridgend, South Wales, the band first formed as a cover band for Metallica and Nirvana, known as Jeff Killed John. When the band first…

Within the world of popular music, there’s no telling what’s going to be the next big thing. This holds true for musical acts from all different genres with unlikely stars emerging all the time, but there is perhaps one exception to this rule and that’s the celebrity band. Every once in a while, a celebrity, most commonly a Hollywood actor, decides that their ego...

"You know where you are? You’re in the jungle baby, you’re gonna die..." Guns N’ Roses dominated the 80’s and early 90’s with their hard rock, glam pop rock, metal, bluesy style of music when at a time pop dance music and pop metal was dominating the music charts.
