Rock On The Range – Day 1 (Saturday, May 21)

After weeks of rainy days, I was ecstatic that the first day of RotR was sunny and clear.  Saw 11 bands this day, and here are my highlights; Asking Alexandria – Saw these guys a few months back when they opened for All That Remains.  Still a decent metalcore act that had a surprising guest […]

Rock On The Range 2011 – Preshow Party

Gonna break down the whole Rock On The Range 2011 experience into a series of posts rather than one mammoth blathering, with an eye towards the noteworthy (IMHO, of course) as well as the up & coming. Or in some cases – the “not so much”. The 5th anniversary ‘preshow’ bash was a free ticket […]

Rock On The Range 2011 is coming. . .

Gonna be a little quiet around these parts for the next few days, because yours truly will be attending all 3 days of Rock On The Range 2011! Yep – even going to the pre-show featuring Steel Panther tomorrow night (might have to wear my spiffy new Anal Cunt t-shirt, not sure). If I’m not […]

No Ozzfest 2011

KNAC.com – This was announced last Friday (the 13th ironically), but Ozzy has confirmed there will be no Ozzfest 2011. Apparently the Prince of Darkness plans to be touring over in Europe this summer – so my readers across the pond, rejoice! For the rest of us, there’s plenty of other shows/tours to fill the […]

Concert Review: Cauldron/Holy Grail – The Summit – 4/6/11

Oldschool metal lived last Friday night at The Summit as Holy Grail & Cauldron shared the stage with Cleveland’s Black/Thrash metal blasphemers – Midnight. How many bands can possibly have the name Midnight, I’m wondering? Encyclopaedia Metallum cites only 4, but I’m betting there’s one in every major city in the U.S. Still, it’s not […]

The Trailer for Elder Scrolls – Skyrim looks AWESOME!

I was gonna post my review of the Holy Grail/Cauldron show from Friday, but dammit – it’s sunny outside and we’re expected to get tons of rain in the forecast after today. Not to be confused with the tons of rain we’ve already gotten this Spring, but I digress. So for now, please enjoy this […]

Concert Review: AxCx – The Summit – 4/30/2011

Often considered one of the most offensive bands on the planet, last Friday I braved my first live performance of the notorious Anal Cunt (or AxCx for the politically correct crowd). If you’re familiar with their body of work, you know that this Grindcore/Punk act from Newton, Massachusetts have been upsetting nearly everyone since 1988, […]

Bands You’re Not listening to – Straight Line Stitch

Look, Alexis Brown is smokin’ hot & the band can PLAY! Put aside your narrow-minded opinion, give’em a chance.
