(Concert Review) HELLYEAH Live at The Apollo Theatre in Belvidere, Illinois (11/26/2019)

Thirty minutes after doors open, there is still a long line of fans waiting to get in. The freezing rain isn't turning anyone away from getting in as soon as possible to get up front for the show. I'm told security is increased for the night, and they're ready for a rowdy crowd.   Hard rockers Deepfall open the show for the already drunk crowd. They get a bigger reception to their cover of Journey's "Separate Ways," but the crowd isn't familiar with their original songs. While also being hard rock, they certainly aren't as wild as the other bands on the tour.    Next up is Nonpoint, a favorite of many, as they often play in the area. It's no surprise when the crowd begins their moshing, and things really pick up for the night. Despite being around quite a bit, I haven't s...

(Concert Review) NEW YEARS DAY Live at Wooly’s in Des Moines, Iowa (9/25/2019)

It was a rather peculiar night of music as New Years Day with special guests Ded and local band Switchblade Saturdays took the Wooly's stage in Des Moines on a Wednesday night.  New Years Day have a couple of songs that busted them on through, and provided a ton of support for Halestorm and In This Moment on several legs of tours this past year, yet it wasn't packed by any stretch of the imagination.  Note to Des Moines, please come out and support live music! Shoutout to Switchblade Saturdays for the set that they put on.  They also had Joey Vice of Motograter fame to help support their live show.  It was cool seeing the lead vocalist on stage for New Years Day set Instagramming the experience.  Local bands take note:  please support your local scene and the bands that you are sharing ...

Madness To Creation Sounding Off: Top Five Favorite PANTERA Songs As We Remember DIMEBAG DARRELL!

On this day 14 years ago, esteemed guitarist Dimebag Darrell was murdered by an obsessed fan while performing with Damageplan at a club in Columbus, Ohio.  He is known for his shredding and insane riffs while playing the axe for southern metal band Pantera, and after hearing stories about him, he was one of the true nice guys in the world of metal.  As a tribute to Dimebag Darrell, we have a top five list of favorite Pantera songs. 5.  Goddamn Electric- This was off of the "Reinventing The Steel" album.  This showed the world that Pantera was here to stay, and who can forget this song that was about throwing those horns up for the world of metal and paying homage to the likes of Black Sabbath and Slayer, while they paid homage to drinking whiskey and smoking weed. 4.  A New Level...

Ded Reflects on the Incredible Year 2017 was with Madness To Creation!

Editor's Note:  2017 was an incredible year for rock music.  We saw the return of rock music to the forefront.  If I were a historian, I would say it's in four-fold, it was the year of the big bands such as Iron Maiden, Metallica, and Guns 'N' Roses from a tour package standpoint.  It was also the year of gritty, dirty classic rock such as Greta Van Fleet, Queens Of The Stone Age, and Royal Blood heading to the forefront.  It was also bands such as In This Moment, Avenged Sevenfold, and Trivium taking that next step, and lastly, Ded came out of nowhere to stun the masses with their live energy and stealing the show opening up for the likes of Korn and Stone Sour.  As raucous and determined as Ded is on the live stage, they are as equally as chill of people that you could talk to you.  They...

Schuylar Croom and Matty Williams of He Is Legend Converses with Madness To Creation on Hot Sauce, Veganism, and Classic Metal

Editor's Note:  It was an interesting night at Amsterdam Bar and Hall in St. Paul, Minnesota as Madness To Creation sat down with He Is Legend.  We spent more time talking about hot sauce and Pantera than their album entitled "few", which is one of the most creative offerings I've heard this year.  It was in a setting where the rockstars were sitting at a patio in the midst of businesswomen and yuppies, which made it an interesting scene for an interview that you would see out of the movies.  They will be having several festival appearances before linking up with the legends GWAR in "The Blood of Gods" tour.  Special thanks to Amy for setting this one up!  Without further delay, here's our conversation with Schuylar Croom(vocals) and Matty Williams(bass) of He Is Legend. M.T.C.:  Ho...
