Psychocide – Alcohol and Bad Decisions

psychocidefeat

It’s spontaneous yet subdued. It’s thematic and filled with meaning. At the same time, it’s outwardly more humorous than literal. It’s artistically multi-faceted and in bulk is the end result of a lot of partying. It’s Psychocide’s music.

F.O.D. – Harvest

FODfeat

Listening to F.O.D.’s music is a bit of a double-edged sword when it comes to the attention span. Mine is rather short. I have a hard time sitting through an entire song if I don’t like the first 30 seconds. But, I feel like this quartet’s new album is playing tricks on my mind. Seeing […]

Darko – Bonsai Mammoth

DarkoFeat

Punk music has been a staple of the rock scene for nearly 50 years, with the hardcore subgenre forming and coming into its own in the last 25. Now Darko have their own take to add with their album “Bonsai Mammoth.”

KilkovecFeat2

It’s almost time to take the Plunge. Kilkovec’s new EP is due January 27th. We got a chance to review the release in November. Now the group has offered up a new video for Change.

Destroy The Line – Ordinary

dtlfeat

When thinking about punk, many people (myself included) think of loud, fast, yet simple music. I imagine a group of guys banging on their instruments and guitarists perpetually playing chords with an open fifth. I think of something that displays a lot of passion, but at times, not the most precision. Destroy The Line is […]

MILLION – The smallest Creature

tsmmillion

Doing anything objectively can be tough for human beings. We will always have underlying opinions about things like politics, pop culture, social media and music – along with just about everything else. Those opinions may accidentally sneak to the surface of any seemingly objective decision or review, but I do my best to prevent that […]

Clark’s Secret Identity – The Promise of a Wonderful Future

csifeat

While Clark’s Secret Identity has too few releases under its belt to be considered prolific, I will say that there was little wait (exactly 12 months) between the release of the debut EP and the release of the debut album. Hell, the band played its first live show this past April. The stylistically ambiguous Pennsylvania […]

Spun Intended – Learn to Love EP

spunintendedfeat

Punk has come a long way (at least the subject matter has) in the 40 years since its inception and punk outfit Spun Intended have taken from the old school and mixed elements of traditional rock they call “Gonzo Rock” for their “Learn to Love” EP. 

3 Kisses – Angels Bleed Black

3kissesfeat

The purpose of music reviews is to inform and entertain the public on the work of a particular artist. Even if it’s only reviewing one album, it’s almost a necessity to have prior knowledge of past albums and other releases to be able to discuss the likely evolution the artist will undergo with time. Since […]

Runaway Kids – Better Days EP

rkfeat

Forming a band is not easy. I can’t really say I know from experience as I’ve only ever played two years’ worth of saxophone in middle school. There was one day in high school where a couple of friends and I came up with a Christian band name, “Cross Word,” but that never got off […]
