Metallica have recently been talking up their track "Lords of Summer"  that they so desperately want fans to throng to their shows to hear. Well.....I can tell you as I have been for the better part of the last 26+ years. Save your money!!

The sound Metallica now produces has taken them from their high point in the 80's as Kings of Metal to the present Lords of Bullshit!!!

This seems to be a track that is completely broken pieces of material that they just threw together and went for an old Iron Maiden of 25-30 years ago feel, but failed miserably. Metallica are nothing more than has-been empty shells of their former selves. Poor Cliff Burton must be spinning in his gave with a palmslap to the forehead wondering how they (James, Lars & Kirk) have seemed to have completely forgotten a bit of music theory that Cliff taught them. It seems that Newsted was smart and got out when he did as he must have heard the ludicrous sound the rest of the band formerly known as M ... Read more »

"This Cemetery, My Kingdom” by Coffin Dust (PA)

The dudes in Coffin Dust are based out of areas in and around West Philadelphia. This section of town has been generating much attention in the world of underground heavy music. Crust, grind & power violence reigns here, and for my money, these guys are a stand out. They blend together much of what I appreciate in heavy music’s past with a twist that makes them unique all on their own. And with their first full length finally released, entitled "This Cemetery, My Kingdom”, it brings together about 3 years of limited releases & new material together for a bone crushing 50+ minute grave robbing session.

After the instrumental opener, the gates crack open and the g ... Read more »

Rock Solid

Seventh Tower's debut EP is a perfect example of how it's done. Powerful lyrics, addictive sound.

From the harmonic gang vocals featured in the intro of "Crown Me King" to the last note of "Came This Far", I was impressed by every song.

Strong vocals and some face melting guitar solos throughout, as well as a resonating lyrical theme of overcoming obstacles and conquering life, make this effort something to be enjoyed by all.

If you like bands such as Shinedown, Linkin Park, Fuel, you will love Seventh Tower.

What's even better is that if you're in the NJ/NY area, you're going to have the opportunity to check them out Saturday night, March 29, 2014 live at ... Read more »

Eye Empire's newest album Evolve is high impact ear candy. Donald Carpenter's vocals are best described as explosive and gritty, yet polished. I'd have to say that his voice is one of my favorite aspects of this album.
The first track "One Day" is my favorite. It comes at you fast and hard. Lyrically, it's brilliant. I loved the build in the break.. "You took my kindness for wea ... Read more »
