If a picture's worth a thousand words, then how many is a song worth? The answer would need to be relative of the song at hand, of course, but for a band like Isis that's so consistently able to create sonic landscapes with the tools of their crafts, one could argue that one of the band's tracks holds a higher verbal value than…

Boston emotional hardcore act (sorry one-sheet, that's the only way they're being described around here) Transit have have offered up a pretty decent release within a genre that, incidentally, they don't like to use to classify themselves. I'm skeptical to agree that there's "surprisingly complex, innovative songs" found here, though they…

How exactly is one supposed to approach critically assessing a best-of collection? Since none are really designed to be a collection of songs arranged in a predetermined sequence that offer a glimpse into a band at one particular point in time, the options are numerous and spread out. Do you evaluate each song individually…

If you enjoy listening to fun rap and hip hop this is a good record to purchase, but if you want something with a bit of substance then stay well, well away.

I have been a fan of Sleeping Giant since their debut release Dread Champions of the Last Days was released back in 2007. I have been captivated and more than enthralled by the muscle and the fervor that the band, especially the vocalist Thom Green, puts into each and every song. With the release of their sophomore disc, Sons Of Thunder, Sleeping Giant have kicked things up a notch. This is a much more mature record that really highlights their growth as songwriters and musicians and the best thing about it is that their passion and intensity has been amped up as well.

Unfortunately, the first two bands of the night shall remain nameless because it seems that I cannot find their names anywhere, and cannot recall the sign prominently displaying their names in colourful chalk outside of Lee’s Palace that night. Regardless, the night went well, Lee’s Palace was packed, I dislike the venue for two main reasons though...

what's The Skinny? here's the deal. There are SO many sick bands out there that just don't get enough love. Well, with The Skinny, that's all going to change. We have taken it upon ourselves to get together and bust out a list once a month where we tell you about a handful of sick-ass bands that we feel NEED to be heard.

The Motorleague are a four piece band from New Brunswick, Canada. They are a hard rock band with plenty of power and speed to release to the world. The songs on this debut album, Black Noise, are catchy, melodic and best of all, fast. There are flashes of Papa Roach, Turbonegro and even a bit of Motorhead which…

The Weirding (06.23.2009)
on Jun 12, 2009
On offer here is a crunchy death metal that shows a need to form a tension of unique intensity; which Psycroptic do so with great aplomb. Psycroptic are capable of elevating their moments into all sorts of controlled chaos that greatly shows the bands' high quality abilities. They are capable of throwing a good deal of insanity at the…

Rather than letting the listener ease into the album, Korpiklaani starts it off fast, fun, and fierce with the first track “Tapporauta (Killing Iron)”. "Tapporauta" is complete with fast-paced drums, charging guitars, harsh vocals, and traditional folk instruments that set the mood—to party! Nearly every track makes you feel like either dancing…
