BAND SPOTLIGHT: SWEET ASCENT OUT OF LAWRENCE, KS

Image
Lawrence, KS rockers Sweet Ascent  dropped their new music video for their latest single, “Alive.”  The song comes from the band’s independent 2015 release, “WAR.”
Jordan Rebman, vocalist of the band, offered some insight on song and touched on the
lighthearted
and fun music video:

“Alive is about understanding that despite what you’re going through, you are still breathing, so
we decided to have fun with this video. While WAR is a very serious EP, Alive is the track
saying it’ll all be alright. Don’t take life too seriously and don’t forget you’re still living. It was
good to finally have a video showcasing how good we are at growing facial hair, as well!”
Sweet Ascent formed in 2012 and have not slowed down ever since. The band has shared the
stage with artists like Beartooth, The Color Morale, Blood on the Dance Floor, The Ready Set
and more. The band just wrapped up the “Back At It With The White Vans Tour” with Never Let
This Go which ran through April 22nd.

ENTHEOS AT SCOUT BAR IN HOUSTON, TX - PHOTO GALLERY BY CHRISTOPHER BROWN

Last night I had the opportunity to catch up with my friends in the experimental deathmetal outfit ENTHEOS. They are a newer group made up of female lead vocalist Chaney Crabb, drummer Navene Koperweis (former Animosity/Anmals as Leaders), guitarist Malcolm Pugh, and bassist Evan Brewer (former Animosity/The Faceless). This 4 piece absolutely kills it every time they take the stage. I caught them first last winter when they toured with The Black Dahlia Murder, and they melted peoples faces off. They are definitely a band to keep your eye on.  I present for your viewing pleasure: Entheos



















EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH BLACKLIST UNION'S TONY WEST BY CHRISTOPHER BROWN!

Tony, first off congrats on the recent releases. The new video for “Evil Eye” is pushing 5 thousand views in just a month, and Back to Momo is receiving great reviews since its release last summer. So great work!
BAH: So I’ve read that you enlisted the chops of guitar veteran Todd Youth as co-writer on Back To Momo. Given the acts he’s worked with, I imagine he’s got this down pretty solid by now. How was the writing process different on this album with the help of Todd vs your other releases? 
TONY: The other Blacklist Union releases were very dark and they lacked one thing .BLUES ... I've always been a Blues Hard Rock / Punk Rock guy. Todd brought that to the mix, Todd and I have an exceptional writing ability together. It's effortless for us and we've been around long enough to deliver the goods. We also come from the same school of music. I grew up seeing a lot of his bands and New York City.
BAH: Is Todd going to be considered as a permanent member of the band or was his…

AMON AMARTH AT THE AZTEC THEATRE IN SAN ANTONIO, TX - PHOTO GALLERY BY MICHAEL MULLENIX

Recently I got a chance to catch up with a band I have not photographed in nearly 10 years.  Amon Amarth wear the Viking Metal badge proud, singing songs of Norse Gods, War, and Valhalla.  And damn are they just a phenomena to watch.  With larger than life stage presence and genuine charisma, at one point they bring up two chain-mailed warriors to duke it out Game Of Thrones style.  VALKYRIES and WARRIORS, I give you: AMON AMARTH!
