Rammstein, Rammstein: Paris

Rammstein RAMMSTEIN: PARIS Spinefarm Records 19 May 2017

I’ve waited years for a live album like this. Rammstein have been one of my favorite bands for almost 20 years. I was finally lucky enough to have seen the band perform on the 2001 Pledge of Allegiance tour that was co-headlined by System of a Down, […]

Amy Lee – Speak To Me

Amy Lee Speak To Me Voice From the Stone Original Soundtrack March 16, 2016

Haunting. As if we should expect anything else from Evanescence’s founder. If we have to wait for new material from Evanescence, Lee’s solo music will tide us by until then. While I did enjoy both the Aftermath soundtrack from 2014, recorded […]

Nine Inch Nails: Not The Actual Events

Nine Inch Nails Not The Actual Events December 23rd, 2016 The Null Corporation Halo 29

Nine Inch Nails’ second EP, following 1992’s Broken, is not for the casual fan. While portions of the album’s 5 tracks give glimpses of the band’s earlier days, overall the album is more subdued. It’s almost like Reznor has run […]

While I don’t identify myself as a Christian, that has never stopped me from finding solace in Sturm’s messages. Lacey’s voice has the power to heal spiritual and emotional wounds, and gives us all a […]
