Facebooktwittermail

*Every Tuesday and Thursday from now until Louder Than Life gets here we will be releasing an article about a band playing the festival to get you familiar with them.*

Today’s Artist is Radkey

There are a lot of bands in the hard rock/metal community that consist of siblings – Vinnie Paul and Dimebag Darrell of Pantera, Chris and Willie Adler of Lamb of God, Max and Igor Cavalera of The Cavalera Conspiracy/Sepultura, and Michael and Chris Amott of Arch Enemy, to name a few.  The same applies for the Missouri trio, Radkey.  The band is comprised of three home-schooled brothers that bring a punk-inspired rock sound that at times, is quite aggressive but contrasts well with the more ‘toned down’ tunes in their arsenal.

Today’s artist is 68′.

 

For those of us who plan on attending Louder Than Life in Louisville, KY this year, we can all safely assume there will be plenty of great music from artists you know and love, and some that may not be so familiar, but amazing nonetheless.  Some are playing the festival for the first time, while some are returning for another year of good music, good food, and an all-around good time and of these, the name ’68 may be a little familiar – and for good reason.

“This is the grown man tour.” –Randy Blythe

For metal heads, going to a REAL metal show and seeing your favorite metal band is the ultimate goal.  Thankfully, that’s a goal I was able to mark off the list a week ago in Nashville, TN when Slayer, Lamb of God, and Behemoth paid a visit to the Nashville Municipal Auditorium.  In a city where country music is prevalent, it was a nice change to bring a metal touch to the city, and what better way to do that, than to bring the heaviest tour of the Summer right to its core?  Of course, Nashville has seen its fair share of metal bands, but none of which compared to the lineup it witnessed on the night of July 30, 2017.

REVIEW: MOTOGRATER Do Not Disappoint With ‘Desolation’

Facebooktwittermail

As a writer, it’s a bit of an exciting game of “What will they do next?” when it comes to bands releasing new material.  Some bands change their sound, some bands change their look, and then there are bands that invent instruments.  Okay, maybe that last one is a little less frequent than the others, but it does happen and in 1995, Motograter became one of those bands.

Maryland’s TUBEFREEKS Raise The Bar With ‘The Dry Tide’

Facebooktwittermail

Maryland hard rockers, Tubefreeks, are at it again with their self-released, third full-length album ‘The Dry Tide’.  The album comes fully stocked with blistering guitar solos, entrancing rhythm riffs, and harmonized vocals which preserve the spirit of the 90’s grunge era that we all love so well.  I was given this album along with others to review, and nothing hit me quite like ‘The Dry Tide’ and at first listen, I was hooked.
