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 […]

Ghost: Popestar Ep

Ghost Popestar EP September 17th, 2016

What an amazing release! I know I’m a bit late with this review, but it’s never too late to find great new music. As if having Ghost release Square Hammer as their latest single wasn’t enough, the band are treating their fans with an additional 4 tracks for their […]

On August 21st, KMFDM releases their latest opus “Tohuvabohu”. “Tohuvabohu”, an Old Testament word meaning “wild and chaotic” is a blistering example of why KMFDM have stayed strong and true to form throughout […]

Lacey Sturm: Life Screams

I write this review as a long time fan of Sturm’s music, both with Flyleaf and her solo releases. 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 […]

ORGY: Talk Sick EP

Talk Sick EP March 23rd, 2015 D1 Music


How did I miss the release of this EP? Since they debuted in 1998, Orgy has been one of my favorite bands, but this release slipped under my radar. When Orgy went on hiatus in 2005, a lot of us were left wondering if the band […]

Lacey Sturm; Impossible

Lacey Sturm Impossible November 6th, 2015 Follow Spot Records

I’m really torn by the latest single from former Flyleaf vocalist and founder, Lacey Sturm. It’s great to have Sturm back on the scene, but I miss Flyleaf. “Impossible” is the lyrically catchy, rocking track that I would expect from Sturm, but it’s also very much […]

Hollywood Undead; Day of the Dead

Hollywood Undead Day of the Dead March 31, 2015 Interscope Records

Not even the departure of long time members, or the push back of the album’s release date could hold back the band from releasing another amazing album. These six masked men from California once again secure their position in the music industry. Day of […]

Breaking Benjamin; Dark Before Dawn

Breaking Benjamin Dark Before Dawn June 23, 2015 Hollywood Records

This is certainly the review I thought I’d never write, but hoped that someday I would. After the band’s 2009 release, and subsequent hiatus amid legal issues, many of us wondered if we’d ever hear new music from Breaking Benjamin, or if it would be […]

Purity Ring; Another Eternity

Purity Ring Another Eternity 4AD March 3rd, 2015 www.purityringthing.com

After a year of silence, with only a few live performances. Purity Ring are once again blessing the world with their unique sound. Stillness. Peaceful. Calming a violent storm. As a whole, “Another Eternity” embodies the soothing emotions that each of the album’s 10 tracks […]

The Dreaming; Rise Again

The Dreaming Rise Again Metropolis Records February 10th, 2015

For so many of us growing up in the 1990’s it was Christopher Hall’s voice and Stabbing Westward’s music that created the soundtrack for our lives. After over a decade of touring, 4 albums, 9 singles and 6 top 25 hits, including 3 in the top […]
