(Album Review) “Into The Black Sky” by COLD KINGDOM

  On May 24th, Minneapolis’ explosive hard rock band Cold Kingdom released Into the Black Sky.  It is the band’s first full-length album following the release of EPs The Moon and the Fool and a self-titled work.  Due to the powerful female voice of Elissa Pearson, the band will remind some of Evanescence.  That is the logical comparison, but listeners should also detect aspects of Breaking Benjamin and Halestorm in the band’s presentation as well.  That being said, Into the Black Sky fully demonstrates Cold Kingdom’s power and creativity as they are beginning to become their own force on the music scene!  The rest of the band is comprised of Evan Ogaard on guitar, Jason Michael on bass, Chris Morley on drums, and Collin Pearson on keyboards. The debut single off the album is “A ...

(Album Review) (BUT, AT WHAT COST??!) by SILVERTUNG

This Friday, Baltimore, Maryland's own SILVERTUNG will be releasing their album full of rock anthems entitled (BUT, AT WHAT COST??!) via Thermal Entertainment.  With this release, fans will be once again clamoring for the band that melted faces on mainstream rock radio with the songs "You & Me" and "Face The Music". The four piece band is composed of Speed on lead vocals/guitars, Codey on lead guitar, Danno on drums, and Sam Sour on bass.  They were at one time the number one most added request on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts and they will certainly achieve that status and then some with this Friday's release. The vocals are gritty and the guitar riffs are memorable, which make for great rock songs in songs such as "Dodging Bullets" and "Feel Inhuman".  Now that your seat...

(EP Review) “Micro” by JINJER

This Friday, Ukraine's JINJER will continue to take the metal world by storm as they unleash their powerful EP entitled "Micro" via Napalm Records.  After this listen, there is nothing "Micro" about this record as everything sounds larger than life. Jinjer has taken the metal world by storm with their diverse vocals in terms of trading off their growls with beautiful clean singing that could be compared to Amy Lee of Evanescence with attitude with the growls of Slayer.  Their music grinds like a meat grinder that would be heard about in Upton Sinclair's famous tome "The Jungle" and their lyrics are thought provoking as well. The lyrics touch on with anything from the evolution of human beings in the song "Ape", to being a victim of child abuse in "Dreadful Moments", while having an e...
