But fuck me and my freedom fries, does this band kick more ass than a stage hand at a Tijuana donkey show. The production...

Machine Rox Driven EP Review

Machine Rox Driven EP Synchrotrax Records I’d say that I hate this type of repetitive Electro Industrial music, but that would be admitting that material so robotic and mechanical such as Machine Rox was capable of eliciting any type of human emotion from the listener.  So I’ll just say “Eh.” Myopic in its scope and cliché  in its execution, Driven are 5 tracks of flat, unimaginative,...

The Moon CD Review for Lunatics

The Moon Lunatics Independent Release The Moon come from Udine, Italy and brings with them the nostalgic feel of the early 90’s alternative movement.  The production is good, the songs carefully structured and the melodies thoughtful.

Wormwood Prophecy EP Review

Wormwood Prophecy 5 Song EP Wormwood Prophecy is a five piece band hailing from Orange Park Fl.  I’m not really sure what there is to do in that part of the country, but based on the band’s bio, nothing that seems more time worthy than drinking beer and practicing your asses off. I haven’t had the opportunity to throw a few back with this relatively young militia of metal heads so I...

Front Line Assembly- Improvised. Electronic. Device.

Front Line Assembly Improvised. Electronic. Device. When a band takes a good amount of time – four years in this case – to release an album, a certain amount of worry builds up. In many cases lengthy breaks between records signal changes in musical direction. But in many other cases, such as the case of Improvised. Electronic. Device, it’s clear that a number of years was required to produce...
