DROIDS ATTACK THE VIPER ROOM IN HOLLYWOOD 6/25/2017

Image
Madison Wisconsin's stoner rock trio Droids Attack unleashed a blistering set of heavy riffs and powerful rhythm at Hollywood's iconic Viper Room on June 25th.  Brad Van (Guitar / Vocals) joked that Madison's music scene was ten years behind Hollywood.  After just one song you realize that this tongue in cheek statement could not be further from the truth.  The band has listed The Melvins as an influence, and although the sound will remind you of them, I would quickly add that the guitar leads are more intricate and very technical. There is a very real beauty in the deluge of raw power that comes through their amps because it is so refined and professionally delivered.  
Unfortunately, not too many folks in town have heard of Droids Attack.  Those that would have enjoyed the show the most ( fans of The Melvins, Clutch, etc), were still hung over from the Tool, Melvins, Clutch, Primus, Fantomas show the day before in San Bernardino.  I hope that Droids Attack can make it b…

WARPED TOUR BANDS TO KNOW: One Last Shot Premiere Music Video For "Grim Reminder"

Image
Horror-infused punk/screamo band One Last Shot from Syracuse, NY has released a new music video for their single "Grim Reminder." The track premiered on the Vans Warped Tour website in anticipation for the group's appearance on the festival this year. In the video, the band conceptualizes the idea that people are often afraid to express themselves the way they want to in life, due to the fear of judgement and ridicule.


"The smiling masks & matching shirts represent how people wear fake smiles on their face and dress the same to fit in," says vocalist Jeremy Romance. "Even though they may want to express themselves differently, deep down inside, they're afraid of doing so. At the end of the video they force the masks on us, symbolizing that some people would rather us be like everyone else, instead of expressing ourselves the way we actually feel." The video was shot by B-horror director Ron Bonk (She KillsNight of the Strange) and the come…

CAROLINA REBELLION REVIEW, BY COENTHEBUTCHER!

Image
Carolina Rebellion has become a music festival that certainly sets itself apart. Not only is it one of the biggest festivals in the two Carolinas but it has slowly become one of the best that The World’s Loudest Months has to offer. Located in Concord, North Carolina the setup is created around an area that is normally full of NASCAR fans. The entire thing is built right outside the Charlotte Motor Speedway. This makes parking, lodging, and grub finding a breeze! The overall organization and pre-planning has come a long way, making this Rebellion longer and more fun each and every year. The first day is always when attendees, go the hardest. They have worked hard year-round to enjoy their own weekend of music madness. People had spent the day finding friends, enjoying their favorite bands, and drinking until their heart was content. No one realized that on Friday, May 5th 2017, that nights headliner would be shaken to the core with an awful tragedy. Soundgarden put on a breath-ta…
