Jeff Buehner of THE LOYAL ORDER/ROUGH CUTT Discusses “Ready For Dead”, Signing with EMP Label Group & Writing Process with Mark Dean for Madness To Creation

Contributor's Note:  The Loyal Order first hatched as a studio project several years ago in Portland, when Jeff Buehner was approached to write a theme song for a regional outdoor hunting reality show.  He reached out to guitarist Brandon Cook for a heavy riff, and the result was a song called Off the Grid (Superhuman).  It aired regionally in the Pacific NW for two seasons. A bassist by trade, singing is a new beginning for Jeff.  The songs were originally crafted with a different vocalist in mind, but after laying scratch tracks for the first few songs, the producer convinced him to lay the final tracks himself.    From this songwriting partnership between Buehner and Cook, the songs began to flow. They soon approached Producer Rob Daiker at The Commune in Portland, Oregon, who has...

OPUS(DEAD BY WEDNESDAY/ELLEFSON & EARTH) Converses with Madness To Creation on “The Corona Covers” and Goes In-Depth on Mental Health Awareness

Editor's Note:  "Music is either in your blood, or it's not", is a common phrase that Christian "Opus" Lawrence usually states when it comes to music as a whole.  He's performed at Woodstock '99 for Gargantua Soul, and that UNSIGNED BAND appeared on VH1's Farm Club, the Howard Stern Show and on ESPN.  In 2005, him and his cousins created Dead By Wednesday and he would become the touring drummer for Marc Rizzo and Bullet Boys.  His band has shared the stage with Rage Against The Machine, Flotsam & Jetsam, Shadows Fall and Hatebreed.  Now, he's creating acoustic music to help him cope with the Covid-19 pandemic and creating "The Corona Covers".  In this interview with Madness To Creation, Christian "Opus" Lawrence discusses mental health awareness, "The Corona Covers" and life on the roa...

Madness To Creation Converses with Chris Volz of Flaw on Independent Thinking, Alice Cooper, and Some Specs on Upcoming Summer Release!

Editor's Note:  It was a pretty surreal night at Spicoli's Rockade.  As a native Iowan, I get giddy when something gets mentioned out of our state in national media.  Happened to tune into the Late Show with Stephen Colbert and they were poking fun at President Donald Trump about using a GoFundMe page to build the wall on the border of United States and Mexico, then Colbert mentioned Flaw and how they needed a touring vehicle for their band to go to Spicoli's Rockade in Waterloo, Iowa.  Here, I will post the video interview and a review of the show featuring Flaw, CO-OP, and The Crowned! At Spicoli's Rockade, Flaw headlined the show with special guests CO-OP and The Crowned! Out of Texas, The Crowned was the first band to take the stage.  The Crowned is composed of Marc Coronado ...
