SKILLET Unleashed

skillet unleashed album review

Without a doubt, Skillet is back and stronger than ever.  “Unleashed” is easily their best album since “Comatose”.  This album is the most cohesive piece of work John Cooper and company have put together.  Their last effort “Rise” was FANTASTIC, in its own right.  They took a stab at making a concept album with Rise [...]

new medicine breaking the model album review

So, Dave from Midwest Music Scene asked me if I wanted to do the review of the Minneapolis, Minnesota band New Medicine’s second album, Breaking the Model.  I am sorry to say that I had never heard of New Medicine.  I consider myself to be pretty knowledgeable about all genres of music (although I will [...]

GODSMACK 1000HP

godsmack 1000hp album review

I was VERY excited when I heard Godsmack was back with a new single and an album coming soon.  I have loved all of their past albums dearly.  They have always written some very big songs, not just big in popularity but in scope.  From songs like “I Stand Alone”, “Faceless”, “Cryin Like a Bitch” [...]


ANBERLIN Lowborn

anberlin lowborn review

by Zene Smith Florida based band Anberlin’s latest album titled Lowborn is somewhat of a bittersweet journey in that it is the last one we will get to take with them and yet somehow, reassures us that it may be a deserving ending in this discography.  One thing I’ve found very interesting is that this [...]


STARSET Transmissions

starset album review

In this age of disinformation, misinformation, and just plain lies, it is hard to know how to interpret “The Message” to which the cinema-rock group Starset makes reference.  Their July 8, 2014 release “Transmissions” is itself a combination of songs that could easily fit into the soundtrack of any modern day sci-fi film and arena-ready [...]

LINKIN PARK – THE HUNTING PARTY

linkin park hunting party album review

  Huge distorted screams from Chester Bennington start out what is to become Linkin Park’s best album to date, The Hunting Party.  They promised us a heavy album and boy did they deliver.  Linkin Park have been exploring other sides of their musical tastes with the last couple of albums.  “A Thousand Suns” was very [...]

HELLYEAH Blood For Blood

hellyeah blood for blood review

BLOOD FOR BLOOD So HELLYEAH has been one of my very favorite bands.  From “You Wouldn’t Know” to “Nausea” this band had it all.  They had the metal world in the palm of their hands.  However, somewhere along the way I feel like they lost themselves.  Well people, crank up your stereo and get ready to [...]


BLACK LABEL SOCIETY Catacombs of the Black Vatican

black label album cover

There are seriously no other bands quite like Black Label Society.  But what else would you expect from a band that features a guitar god like Zakk Wylde?  Their new album “Catacombs of the Black Vatican” follows the hotly successful “Order Of The Black” which was my personal favorite until I heard the new one.  This album [...]
