REVIEW: Deftones sustain their hot streak with ‘Gore’

Artist: Deftones Album: Gore Genre: Rock, Metal Label: Reprise Records Many headlines were made in regards to the tensions within the Deftones camp and the creation of their eighth full-length, Gore. Most of the writing was done with guitarist Stephen Carpenter largely on the sidelines. They also switched things up in the producer’s seat, working […]


EDITORIAL: Of Mice & Men Come Full Circle

It seems that with every minute, rock and roll group Of Mice & Men are becoming more and more relevant to the music scene. The question is, however, in what way? Any Warped Tour fanatic of early 2010-2012 can vouch for the band’s incredible growth as they reigned over the metalcore scene, one tour at […]

Following the previously released “Guilty All The Same” and “Until It’s Gone,” Linkin Park have unveiled yet another new single from their upcoming album The Hunting Party.

REVIEW: Dangerkids – Collapse

Artist: Dangerkids Album: Collapse Genre: Hard Rock Thirteen years ago this September I was sitting at home after school watching MTV when a new band was introduced into my life by the name of Linkin Park. Their single at the time was “One Step Closer,” and though nobody knew it right then that song would […]


STREAM/DOWNOAD: Limp Bizkit – “Lights”

Nu-metal artist Limp Bizkit has released a new song titled “Lights”. This comes fresh off the happening of DJ Lethal rejoining the band after apologizing on Twitter. Now that’s what we like to see: an immature happening being forgiven because someone said they’re sorry on Twitter instead of face to face. Hey, at least they […]


REVIEW: Linkin Park – Living Things

Artist: Linkin Park Album: Living Things Genre: Rock Label: Warner Bros. One of the many things that can be said about Linkin Park is that there will never be one album from the band that will go by unnoticed in today’s mainstream world. The band has just little bit of everything for everyone out there. […]

The album was met with mixed reviews, but with the unanimous opinion that it was most definitely some of the most brutal metal released within the last couple years. Now, a year later the same opinion could be […]

REVIEW: Korn – The Path of Totality

Artist: Korn Album: The Path of Totality Label: Roadrunner Records Genre: Nu-veggie-step Out of all the trendy nu metal bands from the early 2000s, it’s pretty easy to tell that Korn had one of the more interesting and distinctive sounds. Perhaps it’s because they had a few years head start than their colleagues, but that […]


REVIEW: Limp Bizkit – Gold Cobra

Is the return of Limp Bizkit perfect? No, but it is damn close. I have no doubt that anyone who previously loved Limp Bizkit will instantly fall in love with Gold Cobra, but the truly amazing part is just how universally appealing they still are. Seriously, if 2011 ends and Limp Bizkit aren’t once again among the biggest acts in the rock world, I will legitimately be shocked.

Craig Owens going Nu Metal?

…Probably not. However, he is up to something big with some of that genre’s biggest names. From his twitter: In sunny California. Excited to write some songs w/ John 5 (Marilyn Manson / Rob Zombie) over the next 3 or so days. Love my life & my boys.
