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...

(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...
