“Mr. Strangler” of PORN Converses with Madness To Creation on Mental Health Awareness and the Mr. Strangler Trilogy

Editor's Note:  As it's extremely well-documented, it's certainly been trying times for bands and recording artists around the world.  However, it's kept French "Murder Rock" band PORN incredibly busy.  Not only have they released "Act III:  No Monsters In God's Eyes", they have also released remix version of the trilogy which has included members of Combichrist, Mindless Self Indulgence, Stabbing Westward and Orgy on the remix version.  In this interview with Madness To Creation, frontman Mr. Strangler of PORN discusses mental health awareness, the writing process of "No Monsters In God's Eyes" and coping with the Covid-19 pandemic.  Fans can find PORN(the band) at the following locations: www.facebook.com/PORNtheband Madness To Creation:  How are you coping with the Covid-19 pandem...

(Album Review) “Jaywalking Somnambulist” by 9 STITCH METHOD

Tomorrow, metal/deathcore band 9 STITCH METHOD will be releasing their album entitled "Jaywalking Somnambulist".  This album promises to be brutal and showcase a lot of promise in the metal world.  Here is what vocalist Patrick McElravy said about the record and the writing process of "Jaywalking Somnambulist": Being a two man band has always been a little weird, especially in our live setting. With this album Josh and I really sat down together and constructed the songs musically from the ground up together this time. We both are the same but very differently musically, and seeing our different influences really mesh and meld together. We crafted ideas and tunes that never would have happened had we done our songs on our own. We really delved in head first together to try and do what was...

(Album Review) “Anhedonia” by The Religion

Fresh off of premieres with PureGrainAudio and signing with Muddy Paw PR, Adam Drew's project "The Religion" has recently released an album entitled "Anhedonia".  If you're into 80's New Wave with modern day synth-pop, I suggest that you try this one out. "Anhedonia" is characterized as a major depressive disorder where one has the inability to feel pleasure.  For example, social anhedonia is not having interest in being involved in social situations whereas physical anhedonia is having the inability to feel pleasures such as eating, touching, or sex.  The Religion has taken the concept of anhedonia and has packed it into eight songs. Songs such as "Envy" and "Lost" are characterized by those feelings of anhedonia.  "Envy" is definitely that snarky, sarcastic song where the singer wa...

(EP Review) “Ignite” by Phoenix Rising

It is 2018 and elements of nu-metal are coming back to the forefront and Phoenix Rising are looking to become one of the current flagbearers of nu-metal with their EP release of "Ignite". Phoenix Rising all started from a Craigslist ad posted by vocalist Kent Summerour.  Literally.  Hours of travel and a plane flight to Los Angeles later, Phoenix Rising was born.  The other day, Phoenix Rising won the Best New Artist in Texas award from MXD Mag, and they are primed more than ever to release their EP "Ignite" on July 29th. "Ignite" starts off with "Do You Know".  "Do You Know" showcases the substance that Phoenix Rising has from a lyrical standpoint.  Their lyrics touch on how words can hurt and how words can leave permanent scars inside someone's heart.  I really like the piano intro as ...

Nuke and Aeon of Motograter Converses with Madness To Creation on Ivan Moody, Desolation, and Working with Megadeth

Editor's Note:  It was a solid night of rock in Iowa as Motograter was about to deliver their blistering set in front of the Lifer's audience in Algona, Iowa.  Motograter is known for their tribal warpaint, their live set that engages the audience, and the band that had Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch as a frontman first.  It is no secret that there have been a few lineup changes over the years, however, Motograter is moving forward, contrary to what the naysayers might say in regards to that.  In 2017, Motograter released their latest record entitled "Desolation" via EMP Label Group, which is headed by David Ellefson of Megadeth.  This will be one of the first interviews where their newly recruited bass player known as Aeon Cruz was involved, and original member Nuke is in this inte...

“Jawbreaker” by Knee High Fox, bizarro, submissive, craziness rolled into one package!

The Los Angeles music scene can have some of the most creative talent out there!  In a quite saturated music industry, we need that band/recording artist to stick out like a sore thumb, captivate people's imaginations, and bring back the theatrics in the world of rock music.  Here comes Knee High Fox to bring about those theatrics and those bizarre feelings rolled into one as they have released their latest album entitled "Jawbreaker". Knee High Fox is composed of Krsy Fox on vocals, Simon Nagel on bass, Sam Bam Koltun on guitars, and Harley DeWinter on drums.  They bring a mix of new wavy rock, industrial vibes and a whole lot of shock rock that showcases the multiple personalities that Krsy Fox seems to possess. For example, Knee High Fox appears poppy and seductive in the song "Americ...

“Discord” by Dirty Machine, for nu-metal fans out there!

Out of Los Angeles, California is a band that is developing a solid fanbase because of their nostalgic ways in the nu-metal genre.  Dirty Machine has received some solid press over the past several weeks with their video entitled "Discord", some friendly reviews and some not-so-friendly reviews.  They have also met Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit, which to me is all about making connections in the business. Dirty Machine has also shared the stage with the likes of Ghost, Sixx AM, Disturbed, Trivium, Hell Yeah, Alien Ant Farm, Otep, Metalachi, and Orgy. On May 26th, Dirty Machine is releasing "Discord" via Zombie Shark Records.  Zombie Shark Records is the new label from Noah "Shark" Robertson of Motograter/The Browning fame. "Discord" starts off with the title track.  It has the nu-metal flavor...

“Live In Paris” by Rammstein, a cinematic experience that’s transcending!

There is a band out of Germany that is visually stunning, jaw-dropping live, and that pulls out all of the stops when it comes to their live performance.  There's a reason why they initially got worldwide recognition on the 1998 Family Values Tour that featured Korn, Limp Bizkit, Ice Cube, and Orgy with their stunning visual displays, outlandish antics, and enough pyrotechnics to light up the darkest skies.  On May 19th, Rammstein will be releasing their highly anticipated live album via cinema and Blu-Ray entitled "Live in Paris". The Intro is haunting yet leaves the listener sitting on the edge of their seat with anticipation based on what visual displays, outlandish antics, and theatrics that they will come up with next.  It really showcases the creativity of Rammstein, which is why th...
