Show In Review: GOJIRA takes over HoB Las Vegas

No pre-show shenanigans this time around… The Venue Much like the Static X show a few days before I got to the House of Blues early to stand in line with the masses. I spotted a person I knew from a local band and chatted him up while we waited for them to allow people...

Album In Review: Puddle of Dudd

  Ahhh, yes. The “reality show” of rock n’ roll: Puddle of Mudd. Simple, bubble gum raunch that, like a fly continuously hitting a window pane, keeps coming back for more even though it’s absolute brain rot. Lacking any sort of substance, I’m pretty sure that the only reason they’ve had any success is because...

Opinionated Metalhead: The Attack on Porno-Grind

Maybe I have a sick sense of humor or maybe I just appreciate metal music of all sub-genres. It is the audible form of art and expression that sometimes has a sick and twisted satirical value. Just when I thought the attack on metal had gone away I found another gem that attacks the sub...

Album In Review: Pathology- Reborn to Kill

Who is Pathology?  Pathology comes from San Diego, CA an area I know pretty well considering I went to school in the North SD County area. These guys popped up right before I graduated, but I was not in the death metal scene quite yet. I discovered their music years later when they released The...

Festival In Review: Las Vegas Deathfest XI

I’m going to skip my standard format and get down to the nitty-gritty about LVDF year XI.   If you have not gone to this festival yet and are a huge fan of brutal death metal this should be on your bucket list to attend. Even if it’s just for one day (I still recommend all...

Show in Review: Static X – Remembering Wayne Static

The Venue The line was fairly long when I got to House of Blues Las Vegas. I had a random conversation about upcoming shows with the guy in front of me before they waived the line through towards security . Once in the actual venue, I made my way to the bar in the balcony...

Show In Review: For the Folk’n Glory of Power Metal

Pre-Show Shenanigans I didn’t really do much before the show that was note worthy. I made a sandwich and watched the weather channel in my hotel room while going through photos from Belphagor and Dark Funeral the night before while periodically messaging my concert buddy to coordinate. The Venue We arrived back at Club Red....

Show in Review: Devastation of the Nation Tour

Pre-show Shenanigans I spent half the day sleeping off the road trip from Vegas the day before. Did some day job networking by meeting up with one of our regional operations managers for lunch at Mellow Mushroom. Their stout beer selection could use some work but the beer I had with a personal pizza hit...
