Gwen Stacy Breaks Up 0

Gwen Stacy Breaks Up

Well yet another good band goes down. Looks like Solid State will lose another band. I’m sad to see these guys go.  Yea a little late, but I just found out about this a few moments ago while doing some web browsing. I could speculate on various reasons, but I’ll just post up what they put on their myspace regarding the breakup: “After six years, nineteen countries, countless US tours, two albums, and an EP, Gwen Stacy has decided call it quits. We feel like now is the best time to end the band and pursue other options and directions...

A Day To Remember Album Release Show at The Rave Sells Out! 0

A Day To Remember Album Release Show at The Rave Sells Out!

I’ve never seen The Rave sell out, but it sold out about 30 minutes before the show started.  This may have been one of the sickest shows I’ve ever been to and might be tied with the seven thousand people who showed up for August Burns Red and The Devil Wears Prada at Summerfest back in July. The lineup for the show was Close Your Eyes, The Word Alive, Underoath, and A Day To Remember and the day was Tuesday the 16th of November, the very same day that ADTR would “What Seperates Me From You” finally hit the store...

Johnny Franck leaves Attack Attack! 4

Johnny Franck leaves Attack Attack!

Well, I didn’t see this coming. But then again I sometimes don’t see a lot of things coming. No homo.  I really thought the band was doing just fine, but this goes to show that you don’t always know whats going on behind the scenes since that is only made public knowledge when they want to pump up awareness for an upcoming album.  Attack Attack! in all of its Post-Crabcore glory, as this band has been so lovingly labeled my lovers, and well mostly haters, may have been dealt a reeling blow. Johnny Franck who provided mind blowing technical guitar...

The Halloween Show: The Oasis: The Good, The Surprising, The Bad 2

The Halloween Show: The Oasis: The Good, The Surprising, The Bad

This little piece about the Halloween Show at The Oasis is only about a week or more late, but I blame that on Sioum and just how hard it is to describe how incredible their music is. It’s like trying to describe to a beautiful sunset without words to someone who has no clue as to what your frantic hand motions and awestruck looks are trying to communicate.  Oh, and yes, I know that new Underoath and A Day To Remember leaked, and I’m in the process of giving it and new Oceano my three step listening procedure.  Well anyway,...

Looking to go to a show? Bands to avoid and Bands to fight to death to see! 0

Looking to go to a show? Bands to avoid and Bands to fight to death to see!

Now before I begin, I consider bands to be good based on their live performance and sound, not by their genre. If they put on a good show and sounded awesome live, I’m letting you know. I’ll give you three bands in both categories that I’ve seen in the last six months. I avoid mentioning big bands like ABR, TDWP, BMTH, Underoath, ect. due the fact that a good live performance by them is usually assured. Bands to see live:  Veil of Maya:  Those machine gun sounding double bass beats aren’t just something that is reserved for the studio. They have a...

A Rewarding Show with Attila, As Blood Runs Black, Close Your Eyes, For The Fallen Dreams, and Stick To Your Guns 1

A Rewarding Show with Attila, As Blood Runs Black, Close Your Eyes, For The Fallen Dreams, and Stick To Your Guns

 It was an incredible fun show, and to be honest, I wasn’t expecting that much with only having heard Stick To Your Guns once before. Clearwater isn’t exactly my top venue of choice, but it does make for a decent pit, some great places to take pics, and most off all a kind of balcony area where older folks having just come from the bar can stare down with their jaws dropped as they observe hardcore dancers for the first time. One further point about Clearwater is that they forget that security isnt actually supposed to grab moshers. Legally, they...

A Sick Show: Close Your Eyes, Attilla, Stick To Your Guns, As Blood Runs Black and more… 0

A Sick Show: Close Your Eyes, Attilla, Stick To Your Guns, As Blood Runs Black and more…

Just got back from Clearwater tonight which turned out to be much better of a show then I thought it would be.  I’m too tired and in dire of need of sleep to give you all of the juicy details of the show, but rest assured, I will give you a full breakdown of what happened tomorrow in my next post. I was so tired that I barely made it back to my campus awake. My plans for listening to some relaxing indie music, a.k.a The National, had to be ditched in favor of instead blasting “Beheading Of A King“,...

Sleep Serapis Sleep: The Biggest Metal Band in the Chicago and Milwaukee area 2

Sleep Serapis Sleep: The Biggest Metal Band in the Chicago and Milwaukee area

Sleep Serapis Sleep probably one of the biggest bands in the Lake County and Milwaukee area, and their following and success is well deserved if you’ve taken a listen to any other stuff. What can you expect from these guys? You can expect something that is catchy, melodic,  has well placed breakdowns, contains an excellent use and placement of clean vocals, and features song writing that continually gets better. They have a unique sound, that’s for sure, especially in the Chicago and Southern Wisconsin metal scene.  The band has a metalcore feel, but also has southern metal elements in their...
