The Bad Chapter Release Cover Of “Bang Bang”

The Bad Chapter haven’t been together very long, but they are already making a name for themselves. Considering some of the members in their group in their group that’s not hard to do. have released a cover of Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj’s popular single, “Bang Bang.” You can watch the video for it by taking a look below.

I have always thought Phil Druyor was a talented vocalist, and this song definitely highlights his abilities. The band did a solid job with the cover, and the video they shot for it is pretty entertaining.

REVIEW: Beartooth – ‘Disgusting’

Artist: Beartooth
Album: Disgusting
Genre: Metalcore, Hardcore
Label: Red Bull Records

There’s been a lot of build-up leading to the release of Beartooth’s first full-length record, Disgusting. Thanks in part to a trickling, day-by-day promotional campaign, the Caleb Shomo-fronted quintet has gained a ferocious fanbase faster than most bands can tune their instruments, and now seem poised for world domination as they gear up for an extensive run on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour.

Like most, I first became acquainted with the Columbus outfit through their debut EP, Sick, which made landfall back in 2013, and immediately made …

Despite their very recent formation (they literally haven’t been a band for a full month), the outfit has already began to cause a stir due to their impressive roster, which features both vocalist Nick Barham (ex-Attack Attack!) and drummer Arvin Sarathy (ex-For The Fallen Dreams).

Earlier this evening, the group released their debut single, “Separation,” in the form of a lyric video, which you can view after the break. A pleasant blend of heavy and catchy, this …

Phil Druyor Writes Lengthy And Honest Statement Regarding Nativ’s Current Issues

“I’ve written an album for the underdogs. Because I’ve always been one.”

Following some major line-up alterations and a new direction in sound, Ohio’s electronicore outfit formerly known as Attack Attack! quickly became Nativ. For the most part, fans were excited that they were technically continuing on while others lashed out about the decision and heckled the group with nonsense.

Now after only a few short months, the band have found themselves with some internal issues that are currently putting their activity in an indefinite state of stasis. Each year we read news of hiatus after hiatus regarding the …


Nativ Stream “Not Yours”

I can see why the band decided to change their name before releasing new music, these new songs sound different from what Attack Attack! was known for. If you’re expecting to hear some old Attack Attack! then you will be sorely disappointed. With that being said though, these …
