REVIEW: Be on the look out for “Lines in the Sky”!

Hailing from Nashville, TN, Lines in the Sky could be on the brink of super stardom. It typically takes me a day or so to actually get into a bands music for whatever reason. Sometimes I have to go and see them live to really wrap my head around said band’s material. This time, things were completely different, especially when I checked out Lines in the Sky for the first time.

Lines in the Sky are a Rock/Progressive/Alternative band from Nashville, TN. I was given the privilege of listening to some of their songs which I enjoyed a lot. Lines in the Sky currently has an album out right now entitled, Parallel Travel.

I really loved Parallel Travel. My favorite song was the title track as well as a few select other songs. Aside from the title track, the production for Parallel Travel seemed to be pretty tight fitting; instrumentally and vocally. I was impressed by that. The chemistry in the band is astonishing. I could really tell how well everybody fits together. I would definitely recommend Lines in the Sky to somebody looking for a band that is fresh, new, and unique.

Go check out Lines in the Sky and be sure to purchase Parallel Travel wherever music is sold!

Cane Hill, Asking Alexandria, and Bullet For My Valentine Concert Review (5/10/2016)

The Spring Season is the time of the year where you can expect some pretty epic tours. The British Invasion Tour, consisting of Cane Hill, Asking Alexandria, and Bullet For My Valentine is one of those tours. Asking Alexandria recently released their latest album entitled, The Black on March 25th and it was produced by Joey Sturgis.

The show took place at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ. This was my first time attending a show here and I ended up really liking the venue. The staff was very accommodating and the show ran very smoothly.

Cane Hill was the first band to play. I’ve never really heard much about them until I got the chance to see them perform. Their music is actually pretty cool and their live performance is highly energetic. Their music reminded me of Korn‘s music mostly. But, it had a lot of originality to it as well. If you’ve never listened to Cane Hill, then I suggest you go and check them out. They have a new album coming out on July 15th.

I was most excited to see Asking Alexandria because of their new vocalist, Denis Stoff; an unknown, YouTube sensation hailing from Ukraine. I was interested to see exactly how he could fill the void that was left after the sudden departure of founding Asking Alexandria member, Danny Worsnop. They opened with I Won’t Give In and continued their set with a mixture of old songs and some new songs off of The Black. Overall, I think Denis will pull this off. He’s very talented in and out of the studio. Check out The Black and purchase it wherever music is sold.

Finally, Bullet For My Valentine began their set. I’ve seen them three times now and they seem to get better every show. They started with No Way Out which led into Your Betrayal and included hits such as 4 Words (To Choke Upon), Scream Aim Fire, and countless others. Song selection is key when playing live and Bullet For My Valentine seems to have that perfected. Be sure to check out their latest album, Venom, and purchase it wherever music is sold.

Nick Menza benefit show to feature ex-Megadeth members

Over the weekend, the metal scene lost another great one. Nick Menza, ex-drummer of Megadeth, passed away at the age of 51. He collapsed on stage during a performance with his band OHM at a Los Angeles nightclub when he suffered a heart attack.

Albany-based radio station Q103 iterviewed Dave Mustaine prior to Megadeth’s headlining performance at the Rock N’ Derby festival in Scaghticoke, NY when he stated that a benefit show for Nick Menza’s family was in the works. According the interview, he’s hoping to gather ex-Megadeth members so that we can remember Nick Menza for the performer that he was. More details should be coming soon.

VIMIC unleashes “She Sees Everything”

VIMIC has released yet another track, this time accompanied by a music video, entitled She Sees Everything. The track is about a girl who, at first, seems too good to be true and ends up taking every little thing for granted as she sees them. The music video, which was directed by Jeremy Danger and Travis Shinn, is straight to the point without taking away from what the song is about.  She Sees Everything is available now through Roadrunner Records and wherever music is sold.

Drop Everything! Joey Jordison is BACK!!!

Halt! Former Slipknot drummer, Joey Jordison, has made his much-anticipated return with his newest project, “Vimic”. Since parting ways with Slipknot in 2013 due to personal reasons, we haven’t seen much from Joey Jordison since. However, Joey is now back with a vengeance. This track is very raw and straight to the point. He played at such a high speed and didn’t seem to let up at any point for the duration of “Simple Skeletons”. The lyrics were great, the solo was great, everything about “Simple Skeletons” seemed very promising for what’s to come from Vimic.  Click the link below to listen to Vimic’s latest track entitled, “Simple Skeletons”.
