The cover for Black Dog Barking was striking to me. A simple artistic representation¬†of what the title suggests. The band name seems kind of weak to me. Like an 80’s hair metal band or something. The fact that this is a Roadrunner release suggests that this should be a pretty heavy record. Released May 21, 2013 on Roadrunner Records Track listing 1. “Ready to Rock” 5:24 2. “Animalize” 3:03 3.

Black Milk’s No Poison No Paradise caught my eye because of the album cover. Most hip-hop albums are just pictures of the artist. If I saw this in a store and with no other information but the cover I would think it was a psychedelic group from the 60’s or 70’s. I’m not really sure what to expect from this project yet. I haven’t heard anything about this at all. […]

Released August 18th, 2012 on Dull Tools Re-issued January 15th, 2013 on […]

Maybe switches are their thing?” I was intrigued as to why this was the name they choose. In my quick research they apparently wanted it to be “fun and abrasive”. Nailed it. I do tend to gravitate towards groups that have the cojones to […]

“Music is what feelings sound like.” No truer words have ever been spoken. I’m not sure who said it, but that quote sure hits the nail on the head. If music doesn’t move you or make you want to move then you’re not using it right. Music is a huge part of my life. I still get excited about finding a new artist. Which is my whole point in doing […]

On November 4, 2008, along a highway in California, a terrible tragedy unfolded. Chi Cheng, bassist and founding member of the Deftones, was ejected from the vehicle he was riding in as his sister, Mae, tried to pass another driver going 60 MPH. Their car flipped three times. Chi wasn’t wearing his seat belt. Since that day he’s been in a semi-vegetative state. His band mates and contemporaries put on […]
