We’re one year into a global pandemic (because one just *has* to strike every century, apparently), and we’ve begun to see more and more online shows. One could say that they’ve become all the rage in the industry, and these guys know it, because aside from being a three-part series, these new livestreams by Silverstein feature a highly outlandish storyline that makes everything truly… 'Out of This World' (*ba-dum-tshh*) - sorry, we couldn’t help it.
AVATAR kicked off their four-part live stream concert series last weekend with the Age of Dreams. Performing their latest album 'Hunter Gatherer' in full alongside some of their biggest hits, the show was complemented by incredible visuals. Find out what we thought of the performance here.
During 'Tree City Sessions Volume 2', Dance Gavin Dance put on a show that was highly entertaining to watch, with a setlist that appealed to everyone (and was voted by fans, too) in a breathtaking venue, in the form of the Sacramento Tower Bridge. Oh, and they live streamed it for everyone to watch. Here’s our review!
Deftones’ 'Black Stallion' feels like it had a bar that was set so high for itself, that it simply doesn’t manage to break it. Even so, with so many approaches and such a variety of sounds and soundscapes, there’s bound to be something here for everyone to enjoy.
“It starts with one”. Those four words, accompanied by the iconic keyboard intro, make up what is arguably one of the greatest and most well-known moments in metal since the turn of the millennium. Joined by three other singles, 'In The End' helped in making 'Hybrid Theory' the legendary debut album we know it is today.
While it does show off his personality and wide musical taste, and though it contains some diamonds hidden in the rough, 'CMFT' is a disappointing, middle-of-the-road debut offering from Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman, Corey Taylor.
Eskimo Callboy are taking the metal world by storm. Since the release of their monumental single, 'Hypa Hypa', and through their new EP, 'MMXX', their popularity has only continued to grow, and for good reason. 'MMXX' is one of the most refreshing releases of this year, perfectly capturing the core essence of the band, as well as highlighting their new singer, Nico Sallach. Here’s what they had to say about their new EP, and more!
As the latest album by Deftones, 'Ohms' is a sonic punch that only solidifies the Sacramento gang as masters of their art. It constantly ebbs and flows, balancing melodic choruses with crushing guitars riffs and infectious rhythms which make you bob your head to their steady pacing - even more proof that when they work with producer Terry Date, the band strikes gold.
Their new 'MMXX' EP only proves one thing: Eskimo Callboy won’t be deterred by a mere line-up change. The band is firing on all cylinders, the re-recorded songs sound even better, with punchier drums and melodic keys and synths, and newcomer Nico Sallach’s voice ties everything together in a package that not only screams “HYPA HYPA”, but most importantly, “we’re here to stay”.
