HYRO THE HERO Converses with Madness To Creation on Craziest Live Moment, Doing Remixes During COVID-19, and if Donald Trump was in a Moshpit

Editor's Note:  Hyro The Hero is emulating what it means to be a hard rap/rock artist.  The primary reason why he had such a hiatus from 2011 to 2018 was that he was trying to find his identity as an artist.  He latched on to bands such as Korn, Atreyu, and the list goes on and he completely found his voice with his critically acclaimed 2018 release "Flagged Channel".  This man doesn't steer away from controversy either, he keeps it real and provocative.  However, he's been hunkering down like the rest of us(or what they should be doing), and doing remixes of songs during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this interview with Madness To Creation, Hyro The Hero discusses the COVID-19 pandemic, craziest live show moments, and how he would react if he saw Donald Trump in a mosh pit, along with collabo...

Editor's Note:  It was so good conversing with Nick Reese and Robert Sodaro of Joyous Wolf for Madness To Creation.  This interview took place backstage at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa as they were getting ready to provide direct support for modern rock heavyweights Buckcherry.  This band is riding a wave of momentum as people have been talking about their intense live shows along with "Quiet Heart" and their ridiculous cover of "Mississippi Queen" by Mountain.  Fans can find Joyous Wolf at the following locations: www.facebook.com/joyouswolf www.joyouswolf.com www.instagram.com/joyouswolfmusic Nick:  This venue is really cool, I went and saw the crash site earlier, that was a big deal for me.

(Album Review) “All I See Is War” by Sevendust

On May 11th, the legends from Atlanta, Georgia known as Sevendust released their 12th studio album entitled "All I See Is War".  Sevendust is like that boxer that sticks around for one more fight ala Chuck Wepner in the sense that they get cut, bloodied, battered, and bruised but they come back for more to deliver some of the most influential music the underground alternative/metal world has ever seen with their infectious grooves and r&b vocals that Lajon Witherspoon possesses. Fresh off of a Grammy nomination for their smash hit "Thank You", Sevendust gives their fans what they always deliver on and that is impeccable grooves and hard hitting riffs, case in point with the opening single "Dirty".  The track showcases yet another new beginning for the band in their partnership with Ri...

Beau Bokan of blessthefall Converses with Madness To Creation on Choosing to Rise Again After Being Left for Dead, Bread, and Starbucks!

Editor's Note:  It was a great time chatting with one of my favorite vocalists in Beau Bokan of blessthefall.  What I've always appreciated about Beau is his brutal honesty and that he promotes living a healthy lifestyle.  We weren't sure what was going to happen with blessthefall, then their signing with Rise Records happened and they released a total annihilation of an album in "Hard Feelings", which sounds like they've been through some things and saw some things that they weren't supposed to see in this industry(figuratively) and decided to write about it!  After a successful tour providing support for the likes of Of Mice & Men, Cane Hill, and Fire From The Gods, blessthefall is set to provide support for the megatour featuring Asking Alexandria and Black Veil Brides.  Fans can fi...

“Too Far Gone” by Cane Hill…Power and Strength!

Deep in the backwoods of Louisiana comes a band that has a newfound purpose, a new found sobriety(congratulations to Cane Hill), and a renewed sense of focus which is allowing them to cultivate copious amounts of power and strength as Cane Hill has released "Too Far Gone" via Rise Records. Elijah Reed, vocalist of Cane Hill, has stated that it was them wanting to feel invincible and all powerful via LSD that caused them to lose themselves and they went on a journey to rediscover who they are, and what we have now is a band that gives fascism the middle finger and sobriety the fist pump salute with their latest offering entitled "Too Far Gone", which was released January 19th via Rise Records. "Too Far Gone" starts off with the title track, which showcases the power and the return of mode...
