(Concert Therapy Reviews): VIXEN Live at The Landis Theater in Vineland, New Jersey (7/11/2021)

While trying to write this review... all I keep referencing back to in my mind is Lorraine Lewis's use of the term "Hella-cool". If I may be so bold, I'd like to use this word to describe the recent Vixen show I was lucky enough to see. Vixen has been rocking the stages for the past few decades and in their original hey-day I wasn't able to see them. However this time around, that was not the case. Playing recently at the beautiful Landis Theater in Vineland, NJ, I was not going to miss this opportunity. Local NJ Cat Manning opened up the show. I was unfamiliar with her work before hearing her at this show. But I have to say WHAT A TALENT. Cat has a great voice- powerful, expressive and she can really belt out a tune. She has the kind of voice which makes people take notice. A little bit ...

Editor's Note:  It was an absolutely pleasant surprise to have guitarist Austin Ingerman of New Years Day personally reach out to Madness To Creation wanting to interview.  On June 5th, he will be releasing a single from his brand new solo project and he also wanted to discuss about mental health awareness, Covid-19 and anything regarding his solo projects and New Years Day.  Madness To Creation has been fortunate enough to cover this band on two separate occasions, once at the Warped Tour and once when they were headlining at Wooly's in Des Moines, Iowa.  Fans can find Austin Ingerman at the following locations: www.facebook.com/austin.ingerman www.instagram.com/austiningerman www.twitter.com/AustinIngerman www.austiningerman.com Madness To Creation:  Austin, I have to say ...

(Album Review) “Mother” by IN THIS MOMENT

  On Friday, March 27th metal band In This Moment released their seventh album Mother via Atlantic/Roadrunner Records!  The much-anticipated followup to 2017’s Ritual, Mother takes the listener on a philosophical journey that demonstrates the stylistic evolution the band has been on ever since their inception in 2005.  In This Moment--comprised of lead singer Maria Brink, co-founder and lead guitarist Chris Howorth, bassist Travis Johnson, guitarist Randy Weitzel, and drummer Kent Dimmel--continues to demonstrate why it is one of the dominant forces on the metal scene through this work! After an intro, the album gets into a haunting rendition of the Steve Miller Band’s “Fly Like An Eagle.”  An established band starting an album with a cover can be a risky move, but In This Momen...

(EP Review) “Ether” by MARK MORTON

This past Friday, Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton released his solo EP entitled "Ether" via Rise Records.  This EP will take the listener to another side of Mark Morton as a person and as a musician. The EP features guest appearances by touring vocalist Mark Morales, John Carbone of Moon Tooth, Lzzy Hale of Halestorm and Howard Jones of Light The Torch(ex-Killswitch Engage).  Mark Morton started to get recognition from his solo career for his smash hit of "Cross Off", which featured the late Chester Bennington of Linkin Park. Webster's Dictionary defines "Ether" as a colorless but highly flammable liquid.  It is used as a solvent in scientific laboratories.  The title of the EP is appropriate based upon Mark Morton's work on this EP.  He's able to use his intricate guitar work on t...

(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 ...
