Words by William K Images by Kevin Graft – #KGROKFOTO Adam brought his Witch Hunt Tour to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Wheatland on October 20th, 2022. This was the second show of the tour. It was packed with cover songs and a choice selection of his own songs. The set was exceptionally […]
I am a massive metal core fan, since the early days of the genre’s existence I’ve always found that the bands I gravitated towards were those that hit a few marks, combining old school metal, thrash, Swedish metal, and lyrics with meaning from vocalists that command the stage. Miss May I’s Levi Benton has the […]
Most people that know me or read my blogs know my love for August Burns Red runs pretty deep. They fell into the early metal-core scene for me and over the years have never disappointed between albums and live shows. I did recently see them with Killswitch Engage in San Francisco, but it was nice […]
Anthrax, Black Label Society and Hatebreed offered up several hours of complete chaotic destruction from the second Hatebreed came on stage on a sweltering hot day in the Sacramento sun. While I’ve personally seen every one of these bands several times, these are truly bands that you cannot miss live if you have the chance […]
Avatar bring their brand of Swedish heavy metal to Sacramento at Ace of Spades!
A band that seemingly takes all their influences and jam packs them into each album, makes for a fun listening. Every time I hear a new album from these guys I’m always impressed at how catchy they are, while also remaining true to the southern California heavy, punky, rock ’n roll sound they’ve always put […]
Whether you’re a fan of classic hard rock acts or more modern hard rock acts, it doesn’t matter with this tour, as both Mammoth WVH and Dirty Honey bring unique freshness to what has been, in part, a fairly stale genre for some time. Dirty Honey I’ve been lucky enough to catch one other time […]

Words by WILLIAM K Images by Kevin Graft #KGROKFOTO SHINEDOWN blasts into 2022 rockin’ their sold out concert at the Grand Sierra Resort Casino in Reno after releasing the new single and title to their upcoming album “Planet Zero”. Opening the show was relative newcomer from Seattle Ayron Jones. I’ve been following Ayron for over […]
FFAA held nothing back in their first ever show at Goldfield Trading Post in Roseville, CA packed to the brim. Surprisingly this mid size venue sported some amazing lighting and good clear sound for its size. The second FFAA came on, it was an instant pulse through the crowd of roughly 500. Four giant poles […]
Review by William K Photography by Kevin Graft Twin Temple kicked off the night with their satanic lounge act. Hella kitschy and a lot of fun. They were well received by the crowd making many new fans. Volbeat blasted out of the gate ripping through a massive set of songs mainly from the last few […]
Before you say something, yes I know there is no Death Angel coverage in this article, that would be because of three hours stuck in traffic on the drive to Oakland from Sacramento, which realistically should only be about an hour and a half, but I won’t bore you with the details. After arriving in […]

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, […]
