Latest Reviews - January 28, 2015
Staff Rating: Turn this to 4.9 of 11
Genre: Post-Hardcore, Alternative rock
Sounds Like: Fall of Troy, Coheed and Cambria, Poison the Well
Post-hardcore can be such a hit and miss genre as many bands today sound very similar to one another. There are bands however that show signs of talent that could pull them away from the pack if only they had more direction. Take Adventurer for example, their 2014 Self-Titled album falls ri...

Mondo Drag
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: Deep Purple, Kadavar, Uriah Heep
What do you get when you cross late sixties sounding psychedelic rock with modern day psych rock? The answer is Mondo Drag. This band from Oakland, California’s has released a heavy, bluesy psychedelic rock album that is sure to make waves here in 2015. They seem to carry a sound that is remin...

(Night of the Hammer)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 7.9 of 11
Genre: Metal, Progressive rock
Sounds Like: Blue Oyster Cult, Flotsam and Jetsam, Dio
Chicago based Dawnbringer is a true grass roots self-made metal act that has flown way under the radar. Creator, vocalist, instrumentalist Chris Black began the vision back in the mid to late 90s and the band has never hit commercial fame and steered the holistic small label path. Chris Black has ac...

Genre: Post metal, Hardcore
Sounds Like: Inhale Exhale, Herder, Narrows
Hailing from Norway, a region that spawns huge metal acts, welcome Silence The Sky. The band took form in 2009 and released their first EP Citadel in 2010. After some changes to the line-up, they released their anticipated album Ancient in 2014 through the impressive catalog of Negative Vib... Full Review and Video Clip
(Lucky Leaves)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.6 of 11
Genre: Indie, Rock
Sounds Like: Fugazi, Pavement, Pixies
We have fond memories of riding our bikes as kids to the fish store to buy Krill food for our fish aquariums and African cichlids to devour. Perhaps the perfect day for us involved a stop at the fish store and Mr. Cheapos used record shop or Music Den where hours and hours of our lives were spent pe... Full Review and Video Clip
Ape Machine
(Mangled By The Machine)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.8 of 11
Genre: Stoner rock, Hard rock
Sounds Like: Collision, Styx, Wolfmother
Portland Oregon continues to crank out talented artists. Perhaps its the bacon sprinkled doughnuts that inspire, or the high number of small city blocks downtown, or the fact that its got a dormant volcano in the city limits built on a lava field, or even the pit stop at the worlds largest independe...

Genre: Psychedelic rock, Jazz, Prog-rock
Sounds Like: Hawkwind, King Crimson, Tuatara
Looking for some psychedelic rock with tons of improvisation and jazz qualities? Well, we were too until Psicomagia came along. Pronounced (seek-oh-mah-hee-yah), this six-piece band from San Diego, California released a very colorful Self-Titled album in 2013. Think what the psychedelic side of Hawk...

Strangers Family Band
Staff Rating: Crank this to 7.5 of 11
Genre: Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Syd Barrett, The Black Angels
There is no dancing between genres with the Strangers Family Band (SFB). They are psychedelic rock to the bone. Trippy vocals, swirling guitar effects, extended solos, drug references, and euphoric imagery all add to their stream of consciousness experience. SFB were organized in 2007 and hail from ...

Genre: Neo-classical folk, Ambient
Sounds Like: sToa, Opus Nigram, Rising Shadows
Carline Van Roos is an amazing under the radar talent having worked on a variety of projects from the funeral doom band of Remembrance to the atmospheric metal band in Lethian Dreams. While her angelic and beautiful voice may be her strongest attribute, she also plays guitar, keyboards, and percussi... Full Review and Video Clip

Psychedelic drone music when structured well and creative can be remarkable and take your mind to other worldly spaces. As we are always on the search for groundbreaking bands within this genre we come across some that make us stop and pause for a moment. Space Victim, a two-piece band drew us in wi...
