Review: Six Reasons To Kill

Six Reasons To Kill "“Kiss The Demon”" (Alveran Recordings) Extreme metal.  Demonic vocals and more guitar crunch than you are worthy of.  Sinister vibes spew from Six Reasons To Kill.  Solid in its...

Review: Spazboy

Spazboy "“Alright Tokyo”" (Moonsault Records) Almost reminds me of a hard rock/punktified Barenaked Ladies. These guys live up to their name with rapid-fire vocals, quick chord changes, insta-hooks (tm)...

Review: The Stereo

The Stereo "“No Traffic”" (Fueled By Ramen) Indie Pop.  Someone is wearing a Weezer T-shirt to bed at night.  Getting away with a rhyme scheme that is pure pop, and guitars that either pump along rock...

Review: Madcap

Madcap "“Stand Your ground”" (Sideonedummy) Arg, annoying when the music is good but the vocals fall short. Hate to start a CD review out like this, but it has to be done. The album bursts out of the...

Review: Gandalf

Gandalf "“Rock Hell”" (Earache Records) Perhaps I'’ve been out of the musical loop for awhile, but Gandalf wasn'’t exactly what I expected to hear when throwing a disc in the old player by a band on...

Review: Keepsake

Keepsake "“The End Of Sound”" (Eulogy Recording) Crossing the melody of hard-edged emo punk rock with a slight dose of super abrasive scraping scream and chunky metalcore riffage, Keepsake mix sandpaper...
