(Concert Review) HELLYEAH Live at The Apollo Theatre in Belvidere, Illinois (11/26/2019)

Thirty minutes after doors open, there is still a long line of fans waiting to get in. The freezing rain isn't turning anyone away from getting in as soon as possible to get up front for the show. I'm told security is increased for the night, and they're ready for a rowdy crowd.   Hard rockers Deepfall open the show for the already drunk crowd. They get a bigger reception to their cover of Journey's "Separate Ways," but the crowd isn't familiar with their original songs. While also being hard rock, they certainly aren't as wild as the other bands on the tour.    Next up is Nonpoint, a favorite of many, as they often play in the area. It's no surprise when the crowd begins their moshing, and things really pick up for the night. Despite being around quite a bit, I haven't s...

(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 ...

Trevor Phipps of Unearth Converses with Madness To Creation on Poker Tips, Remembering Vinnie Paul, and America’s Screwed Up Environmental Policies!

Editor's Note:  Let me tell you, this was one of the most chill interviews I have ever done.  Trevor Phipps of Unearth was like a long lost friend that I reconnected with.  Unearth was getting ready to dominate the Vans Warped Tour and we talked about everything from games on smartphones, to Vinnie Paul and Dimebag Darrell, to even Donald Trump's skewed environmental policies.  Unearth's single "Incinerate" recently hit number one on "The Devil's Dozen" via Liquid Metal.  Fans can find Unearth at the following locations: Madness To Creation:  (As Trevor is finishing up with a game on his smartphone), What kind of video games do you like to play? Trevor:  Not much of a gamer, but on the road, I like to play games.  I'll show you, (pulls out his phone), it's Clash Royale, it's like Cla...
