Gifted – Pure EP – CD Review

After a few lineup changes, Gifted is back with their latest offering, “Pure“. Emmet Fahringer (vocals) is the only member left in the Gifted that I knew. I know that some people fear change, but from what I have heard on the “Pure” EP, you have nothing to fear. Track Listing: Seven Sundays – 3:01 …

Blind Melons – 04/06/2002

Not having seen Agrokulcher play for a very long time (line up changes and writing new material) it was time to take the drive down to San Diego's Blind Melons for Zach's Annual Birthday Bash (Zach, vocalist of Ghoulspoon fame). I arrived a bit early, 7pm, and the bands were not supposed to go on …

SiX – When The Beauty's Gone..

SiX – When The Beauty's Gone.. Lauren is back. SiX is the new project that Lauren is fronting along with Bob K (guitars/bass/programming), Alfunction (guitars/bass/programming), Rob Woods (drums).

Kittie – Oracle

Full Frequency – Momentum

My old stomping grounds in Orange County, CA seems to be producing a breed of bands that don't suck! (hed) p.e., Sinder and Full Frequency to name just a few. Full Frequency's sound is a dash of techno mixed in with industrial flavoring. Released in 1997, Momentum has 10 tunes for you to listen to …

Die Section – Self Titled

So the good folks at BandBitch sent over a CD of one of their bands, Die Section, to the UnEarthed.Com secret underground compound and the disc was placed into the sound system. There the heavy, industrial sounds were pumped throughout the isolated hallways of the facility stirring the inhabitants into an audio feeding frenzy. As …

Drop Shadow – Blue – CD Review

Sometimes I cruise the net to try to find something new and different to listen to. One of my main sources to find a “breath of fresh air” is mp3.com. You know the place, thousands of independent artists upload their music for people to listen to and hopefully purchase. I was looking in the Industrial …
