THRICE AT EMO'S IN AUSTIN - PHOTO GALLERY BY MICHAEL MULLENIX

Image
FELLOW BEASTS! On the big list of bands that eluded me forever, Thrice has definitely been a big standout on that bill.  Truly defying convention and blurring the lines between genre, Thrice has been a trailblazer in the modern rock scene and worked to redefine themselves with every new album.  On Monday, September 24th, the consistent original lineup for the band showed up at the Emo’s concert hall in Austin in support of their new album, Palms. As a powerful method of cementing the new material, the band’s lights enveloped the 4-piece in an ethereal glow as they rocked into the new track, Only Us. Through an impressively extensive set list the band was able to showcase newer fan-fare like Hold Up A Light and The Grey, while still highlighting the essentials of 8 previous albums.  Songs like Black Honey with it’s haunting rhythms, or the punishing beats of Firebreather, to the reflective if not whimsical grooves of Anthology, show the wide-cast approach of Thrice, brought together b…

InGhosts Release Official Music Video for "Gravity"

Image
Indiana based Post Hard-Core band InGhosts has released the official music video for their newest single, "Gravity"


“Gravity” is a huge step in a new direction for us as musicians. We tackled a lot of new ideas with this song and couldn’t be more excited to share it with the world. Sometimes life can get heavy, but with a little company and togetherness, we can defy the weight inside. - Mike Kenway (Guitar/Vocals)



Music has always provided a way of dealing with frustration, with anger. It's a way to battle depression and anxiety, fear, and doubt. It's our way to speak out about what is felt to be wrong, what is felt to be unfair.  In 2015, InGhosts released their debut full-length record Still Breathing to fulfill all of these needs. From speaking to the need of music and the community alike in "Home" to surviving the battle within yourself and suppression in the title track "Everon" vocalist Tyrus Denton leaves nothing behind closed doors.

FRESH MEAT FOR THE BEAST: AITTALA

Image
Why the name 'Aittala'? (pronounced 'eye-tah-la') Simple. A name was needed and Eric's last name seemed like a good choice. It's ambiguous and doesn't lend itself to any specific genre like some band names tend to do.

The music crosses many metal genres; it’s hard to put it into just one category. The sound infuses elements of classic heavy metal, doom, progressive, power, thrash and hard rock with lyrics drawing inspiration from the darker side of the human condition.
The Aittala sound has been cited for being unique which isn't easy in this day and age. Eric formed the first version of Aittala in 1991 while living in Holland. With fellow American Tim Mannon on vocals, Dutch drummer Ed Vereijken and Dutch bassist Jon Doe (while his first name is Jon, his last name has been forgotten with time, so he's become 'John Doe'), the band played numerous shows around the Dutch metal scene.
With the release of the 3-song EP Selling Heaven in summer of 199…

FRESH MEAT FOR THE BEAST: THUNDERPUSSY HAILING FROM SEATTLE, WA.

Image
The un-apologetically rowdy all-female rock band from Seattle will be playing Cal Jam in San Bernardino next Saturday, 10/6 at 12pm on the Main Stage.

If Thor’s Hammer of the Gods from “Immigrant Song” landed in the hands of four wise, willful, and wild women? Well, it would sound something like Thunderpussy. The quartet—Molly Sides [vocals], Whitney Petty [guitar], Leah Julius [bass], and Ruby Dunphy [drums]—do the most rock ‘n’ roll thing possible and quite literally fuck up every rock ‘n’ roll stereotype you know to be true, piercing the halls of Valhalla in the process. www.facebook.com/Thunderpussy/

Image
This summer, heavy revolutionaries OTEP unleashed their most uncompromising, candid, all-inclusive and controversial assessment of the current residing political regime that they have ever released - the new album Kult 45. In support of the album, OTEP recently announced her upcoming "The Art of Dissent" U.S. headline tour, kicking off in Bakersfield, CA on Friday, November 23.

Otep Shamaya says,"In a time when apathy has been weaponized to suffocate the voice of the people, in a time when Americans are told not to believe what we see with our own eyes but to believe what one bloviating sack of sewage and a gutless Republican Party who care only about preying on the working class and the working poor just to feed his KULT from the same gruesome trough of racist, homophobic and sexist slop. We are proud to bring THE ART OF DISSENT tour to the people to hopefully remind them just how pow…
