JINJER at ACE OF SPADES, SACRAMENTO, 10/28/21

Something told me walking in to Ace this night that I would be bored with three bands I really knew nothing about and have never really listened to, with the exception of Suicide Silence who I haven’t seen live since Mitch Lucker was still the singer. However, I ended up not just being thoroughly entertained, […]

FRANK TURNER & THE SLEEPING SOULS – ACE OF SPADES – 10/25/19

Frank Turner holds a special, weird, unusual place in my heart because when I discovered him it was a time in my life where I needed to hear a like minded voice, so I usually like to make every effort to see him when he comes to play live.  I was leaving for the show […]

Miss May I – Deathless

Track Listing: I.H.E. Trust My Heart (Never Hope To Die) Psychotic Romantic Deathless Arise Turn Back The Time Empty Promises The Artificial Born From Nothing   Being a fan of early 2000’s Metalcore, and some newer Deathcore, I was drawn to Miss May I’s early sound because it was aggressive while also drawing you in […]

Overkill – White Devil Armory

Track Listing: Xdm Armorist Down to the Bone Pig Bitter Pill Where There’s Smoke Freedom Rings Another Day to Die King of the Rat Bastards It’s All Yours In The Name   When I think of the most iconic bands in thrash metal history, Overkill always gets mentioned among the greats. The squeels, the power, […]

Spellcaster – Spellcaster

Tracklisting: The Fading Light As Darkness Falls Bound Ghost of My Memory Premonition Haunted Run Away Eyes of Black Clockwork Voyage   Previous Spellcaster albums have had a much more traditional thrash feel, and while going through this album It feels like the band is really starting to come in to their own and bring […]

Shadows Fall – Fire From The Sky

Time and time again, Shadows Fall never cease to amaze me, from beginning to end this album eerily reminds me of the early days of the band.
