Day One from From Ashes To New will turn some heads this year, for those who can hang with commercially capable yet strong hard rock infused with rap, hooks and riffs tailor made for big venues. Better Noise Records is doing the honors and the vocalist Chris checked in to give us the low down info.

By any standard the Papa Roach and Seether tour (with up and comers Kyng and a band I often hype called Islander) has been a huge success all around. Somehow the bill, which featured a blend of nu metal and hard rock, was a blend of both PMA and mope but the bands gelled together great.

Islander opened it up, far and away my favorite younger band of the moment. I’ve interviewed them 3 times already! It was cool to finally meet the dudes in person. Like myself back when I sang for a nu-hardcore band Divest, the Islander boys have collaborated with someone from the legendary Bad Brains (arguably the first hardcore band) . The  Islander guys just seemed so psyched to be playing the big room. It reminded me of when I saw Polar Bear Club open for mighty Bad Religion in this same venue and they kind of stole the show from BR and The Bronx (both of whom I love). Islander were the hungriest band here and they killed it with NO backing tracks like some bands use these days. “Lucky Rabbit” (the song H.R. from Bad Brains sang on with them on their first EP) was intense, a post-hardcore and groove hybrid that found vocalist Mikey screaming for all the ones “slipping through the cracks in the system.” I told the band backstage they had only been beaten in year end polls for this site by a slim margin, and by the Foo Fighters. “If you’re close behind the Foo Fighters that’s not too bad,” said Mikey. “Dave Grohl still has a punk rock heart. We’re just kids who grew up on Bad Brains and Zao. I think we’re doing well. Mayhem Fest seasoned us a little bit. ”

Thanks to Islander’s label Victory Records for hooking us up with access and for supporting hard rock, metal and hard core now with a wider range. I love the old Victory era as much as anyone but this is 2015 and with people not buying records as much it is important for a label with a solid brand and passionate staff to get behind and unify a diverse roster and keep “rock” in general going strong! I’ve only ever had great experiences with Victory.

Album Review: Nothing More “S/T”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, January 6, 2015 at 1:52 PM (PST)

PromoImage

Nothing More are winning converts in the rock world with sophisticated philosophical elements, a wry sense of satire and cultural critique and music that swings between pop emo and psuedo Killing Joke intensity. It makes sense they landed on the Periphery Juggernaut tour along with Evil Ink records artist’ Thank You Scientist and the dudes in Wovenwar. TYS are pretty much Coheed disciples while Wovenwar always wrestled with inner emotions and spiritual elements (think As I Lay Dying’s rise and fall). Periphery are widely considered the leaders of the new school of young prog metal bands (No offense to all the Chicago Sumerian-core bands like Veil Of Maya and Born Of Osiris). Nothing More are perfect for the Juggernaut tour package. Not many bands can citeEckharte Tolle and Dustin Kensrue as influences (and the all is one trip “Pyre” is the best semi secret track on a release since QOTSA’s Songs for the Deaf Acid Bath sounding “Mosquito Song” or maybe even Nirvana’s Nevermind noise bomb “Endless Nameless”).

“Do you feel the appeal?” The soaring vocals Asking Alexandria or Coheed fans love are here, but probably more appealing to the average listener. “This Is The Time (Ballast”) has an opening riff that’s generic groove core but the band gets much more interesting from there.

Fozzy fucking rule and Buckcherry have the party survival prowess of a world class hard rock act. To this day both bands remain true to their values and rebel with style to packed houses.

Jericho really knows his metal. Chasing The Grail is still one of my favorite albums (especially the epic “Wormwood”). I like that Fozzy has Stuck Mojo roots and weren’t too high falootin’ to not play covers in their early years. Chris loves The Scorpions and Ozzy, which is cool.

I always wondered if Buckcherry could face a tornado and survive.

Here are some exclusive shots from Catharina Christiana of the band’s pairing off recently from their NYC and Poughkeepsie gigs. Oh and buy Rival Sons tickets at the Big Apple venue coming up HERE (if ya want a hot tip).

Anyhow, click HERE to see the photos.

Hell Yeah’s Sin City new album news blast!

In news more exciting than my Christian Mingle profile…

…Determined to bring their fans something fresh and new, the members of HELLYEAH have hunkered down in Las Vegas, Nevada with producer Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment) and are nearing the end of an epic time in the studio.

The band, comprised of rock royalty, Vinnie Paul of Pantera; Chad Gray and Greg Tribbett of Mudvayne, Tom Maxwell of Nothingface and Bobzilla of Damageplan, has been making good-time hard rock music since its debut in 2007.   Adding a new dimension to their work, they brought in producer and collaborator, Churko.  The band’s growth and his contribution promise to make this release unforgettable.

Says Big Vin: “This record is heavy and diverse.  It was an honor working with Kevin Churko… everything we did on this record was from a different perspective.  Kevin really pushed and got the best out of us.  Can’t wait for all the HELLIONS to hear it.”  

Churko: “HELLYEAH has really come into this record with a hunger. They’re putting everything they have into it. They’ve really impressed me both with the tracks they brought in and with their drive to make them even better. I think they’ll really be delivering their best record yet to their fans and they’ll be making new believers out of others. 2014 will be the year of HELLYEAH!.” 

The as-yet-untitled release is due out on Eleven Seven Music on April 28 in the UK and 29 in the US. Now if only they would do a B-side cover of Skrapp Metal’s “Muff Diving In The 80’s”, I’d be super pumped. Chad could give Jeff Scott Soto a run for his $.

Keith Nelson hopes new Buckcherry album will be released this year

Posted by Metal Dude on Monday, September 10, 2012 at 7:17 PM (PST)

Last weekend (September 1st), PopCultureMadness.com conducted an interview with Buckcherry guitarist Keith Nelson and you can watch it at this location. In the interview, Keith said that he he hopes Confessions, the band’s upcoming sixth studio album, will be released this year, explaining:

“We’re still hoping to get it out by the end of the year. But if not, [it will] probably [be out] early next year. We’re just trying to tie up some loose ends behind the scenes that really don’t have anything to do with the actual material that’s on the record. So as soon as we know, we’ll let the world know, and we’ll get on with it. But it hasn’t stopped us from playing shows and doing what we love to do, which is play gigs. We’re gonna wrap up this tour in a few days, actually, and go home for a couple of weeks and revisit the stuff and get going to rehearsals and tune up all that stuff, so when we head back out at the end of September, we’ll be ready to play the entire record.”

Over exactly two years have passed since Buckcherry released last studio album All Night Long on Eleven Seven.
