Manson & Slayer are names that you HAVE to know! In fact, most of you probably already know of them. But what about Bleeding Through? Once again this is a name and band that you NEED to be aware of! They are so rad in fact, that they are just coming off of a HUGE tour with the two aforementioned artists.
"Paralyzer" is the first single from Canadian alternative rock band Finger Eleven's fifth album, Them vs. You vs. Me.
Though interviewer Spencer Matulaitis had barely heard of Simon Dawes, it was obvious that he was stoked on seeing them open for Incubus. Check out how the meet and greet with this up and coming band went when they hit up Toronto late Summer 2007, at the Molson Amphitheatre.
The Summer is ALWAYS all about BIG tours and festivals. You know those all day shows that make you want to call in sick to work and rock the EFF out! Well Warped Tour happened to be the most recent big day out and we caught up with As I Lay Dying guitarist Nick Hipa to see what was up. On their cooled bus, Nick told us about touring mishaps, details about the new album An Ocean Between Us, info on coming tours, air-guitaring, and how to dance at an AILD show!!!
"Falling On" is the second single from Finger Eleven's 2007 album, Them vs. You vs. Me, as well as being the second of the album's eleven tracks.
3, also known as Three, is an American progressive rock band formed in Woodstock, New York in the early '90s.

For our last installment of the SOTU '07 viderviews we have a nice lil one lined up with This Is Hell guitarist Rick Jimenez. In a noisy cafeteria just next to the Kool Haus venue in Toronto, Canada, we caught up with the band and subsequently spoke to the hardcore axe-man in brief. Rick was a super-nice dude and gave us some great insight into the band's hardcore roots, their split 7 inch with Toronto's own Cancer Bats, and how stoked he was to be hitting up Europe soon after the band's SOTU dates ended.
Maybe you're getting sick of hearing about SOTU '07... but whatever... deal with it! For this installment of our viderviews, we are bringing you a candid interview with Amon Amarth frontman Johan Hegg.
You all know that this summer SOTU '07 demolished the whole North American content! Well, we caught up with an equally devastating group in Job For A Cowboy and spoke with frontman Jonny Davy and guitarist Bobby Thompson just outside the Kool Haus on a grassy knoll. The guys answered questions about their latest music video, new album Genesis, and a whole lot more including tour plans for the rest of the year! Enjoy ya'll!

Ah, Sounds of the Underground... what a fantastic Metal tour to enjoy on a hot summer day! On the 18th of July in a sunny Toronto, Canada, PureGrainAudio caught up with The Acacia Strain.
On June 27th, in a windy alley outside of the dingy-but-fun venue known as the Reverb in Toronto, Canada, we had the pleasure of briefly chatting with The Red Chord's frontman Guy Kozowyk. In the interview, Guy told us about the band's new album Prey For Eyes, the lack of fights on tour, bus breakdowns (what else is new), new guitarists, and most importantly... the answer to the question, "whose toast is it?"
On July 18th, this year's roaming, thundering beast that is SOTU hit Toronto, Canada. We caught up with Darkest Hour guitarist Mike Schleibaum for an on-the-fly interview.
The Dead Walk is the third studio album by the American band The Acacia Strain.
On June 27th, Toronto, Canada was devastated with one hell of a Metal show. There was carnage everywhere, legs and arms flying around, and sweat, spit and blood pouring all over people. It was BRUTAL! During 5 seconds of quiet, we managed to grab All Shall Perish frontman Hernan "Eddie" Hermida and ask him several things about new material, Euro-tours, and BEER! Oh and there was a stupid seagull!

T'was a humid, sticky 2nd day of June in Toronto, Canada when we got temporarily relieved from the heat, with some cool tunes. On that day during the last stop of the sick Tour and Loathing tour, PureGrainAudio's Spencer Matulaitis connected with Protest The Hero frontman Rody Walker and spoke to him about pissing on tour bus beds, band fighting, oh... and their new record! Plus a random guest appearance by Stuart Aiken, front man of These Silhouettes.
