Released in 1976, this album was intended as a sequel follow up to “Welcome to My Nightmare”, taking on the idea of a theme album again. The release went gold with a few successful tunes coming off its debut. A planned tour though ended up being canceled due to Alice’s bout with anemia. The release featured producer Bob Ezrin providing his handy work to a more polished studio release for the Alice Cooper band. … Continue reading
I’ve always been a pretty solid Alice Cooper fan. Though I will confess that my loyalty lies more in the earlier edgier releases of the 70’s. They were inventive, strange, and melodically creepy. A perfect union of horror and music. Alice has always been the iconic superhero of horror rock. In later years, I lost my rush as he became closer to 80’s metal, with cheesy lyrics and a band who seemed more like … Continue reading
Given that A Violent Emotion quickly became a staple and almost immediate classic of the aggrotech scene, AP has a high bar to step up to. Overall, I think All Beauty DestroyedÂ is an okay followup, but is too focused on playing it safe vocally while buying into worn out tropes of the genre.
The music is about what youâd expect: distorted beats and blaring synths. Graves keeps a nice balance between dancability … Continue reading
Taking an inspiration road turn, Marilyn Manson arrives with a new conceptual album in the form of “Mechanical Animals“. It’s cover features the lead singer MM showcased in an androgynous genital-less pose. In some respect it reminds me of David Bowie’s “The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976)”, though I believe that conceptually it was the early 70s album “Ziggy Stardust” that inspired this release.
While clearly a tribute to his influences, “Mechanical Animals” … Continue reading
The world was taken by a storm of raw energy and trendy sounds that can only be defined as Marilyn Manson. “AntiChrist Superstar” was more than just a game changer, it was a formal introduction into the man, his music, and his band’s dark aura of energy rock. This record-breaking album was soon playing on the players of every Goth, rock fan and industrial nut across the board proclaiming MM as the anti-hero for … Continue reading
It appears the angry, in your face gothic hard rock master has returned. Yes, none other than our dearly beloved Marilyn Manson. I say that because his last couple of releases were easily forgettable and void of the kind of material that drew me to his music in the first place. The new album is called “Born Villain” and it’s been long overdue.
“Born Villain” takes the odd road with some of the inventive … Continue reading
The band recently completed the first round of recording with legendary producer Tim Skold (Marilyn Manson), and will finish recording in Orlando, FL this April with Jason Suecof (Trivium, August Burns Red, All That Remains) for their highly-anticipated upcoming second album, slated for release in fall of 2012. The follow-up to their acclaimed debut album Creatures, the upcoming full-length has already been tipped by Alternative Press as one of their Most Anticipated Albums of 2012. … Continue reading
Genre-defining albums have sprinkled metalâs history with those few releases that transcend whatâs been done before. Metallicaâs Kill âEm All taught us metal could be heavy and still be rock and roll, Quiot Riotâs Metal Health ushered in a decade of hair bands, and Nirvanaâs Nevermind killed that decade with a single song. More recently, Amorphis gave us Skyforger and showed us that metal didnât have to be formulaic and boring. Post-metal needs such … Continue reading
It took weeks to figure out what I liked about Beyond the Lightless Sky. I enjoyed the album from first listen, then played it over and over, enjoying it more each time. But what defines Hull? What makes them unique? Theyâre certainly talented and excellent songwriters, but there are tons of talented bands who write good songs. That isnât enough to stand out. It hit me while listening in the car that in a … Continue reading
The 2000s should be known as the decade of boring metal. More passionless music poured out of those ten years than any other I can remember. In purging the flamboyancy of the 80s and early 90s, metal bands lost their passion and originality. Thatâs why Iâm so excited about albums like Aphotic. In a subtle direction shift, Novembers Doom adds a dose of creativity to its latest release.
The members of Novembers Doom have … Continue reading

Metal is rife with various genres and subgenres today. From doom to death, symphonic to folkloric, progressive to rapcore, everyone needs to classify themselves into a comfortable definition. Product of Hate isnât having any of it. According to the genre tag on their debut EP The Unholy Manipulator, theyâre just âFucking METAL!â There are no ballads, symphonic melodies, flutes, synthesizers, Norse mythology or opera singers on this album. Instead, we get heavy metal with … Continue reading

Concept albums came into prominence with The Whoâs Tommy back in the 60s, and continue a rich tradition of storytelling in music to this day. In TreeLogia (The Album as It Is Not), The Morningside gives us a new twist on the concept album; a fifty-minute single. TreeLogia is an exposition of the song The Trees from previous album The Wind, the Trees and the Shadows of the Past, and tells the story of … Continue reading
While punk died long ago, it left a legacy of rock-and-roll music played loud, played raw and played without concern for narrow scope and genre definitions that curtail so many styles. This leads us to Aidenâs Some Kind of Hate. Born out of love for horror and punk, the album blends the two in an angry and surprisingly fun rock album.
Aiden formed in 2003 as a punk/emo band. They recorded … Continue reading
Music Video: Calm – Ugly Sulk
Roach made a wrong decision in her life
and it leaves us all very sad.
Everything seemed to be going well:
the music, the band ‘Ugly Sulk’ were starting to get somewhere… People were listening.
We are all at a loss at Roach’s demise.
We are all very familiar with her trials and tribulations,
her insomnia, her addiction to sleeping pills…
Maybe … Continue reading
