BLACK ANVIL: New York Black Metallers Announce Additional Live Infiltrations; Tour With Skeletonwitch And Ghoul To Commence Next Month
These past few years have been huge for Australian band Tonight Alive. It is always good to see hard work begin to pay off for a young band, and it appears that even though they have began to taste success, Tonight Alive is not even thinking about coasting. Their new album, The Other Side, is phenomenal.
From the first minute of this album, it is clear that the band has grown and matured. “The Ocean”, the opening track, lets us know right from the beginning that this album will be darker than their previous material. The force behind the song is driven by singer Jenna McDougall’s voice. Unlike previous work, this time around she really explores her lower register. Some of the guitar work on this album is very reminiscent of Anberlin, which is a good thing. The band sounds tight, and with McDougall’s new vocal techniques you can expect both old fans and new fans to be impressed. This is an album that after one listen through you will find yourself singing along to and air drumming/guitaring. This album hits high levels of energy, but can wind down with ease. Expect an intense experience while listening to this album, because you are in for a trip.
If you have listened to Tonight Alive before, you should keep doing so. If you haven’t, you should begin to now because they will only be getting bigger from here, and if they keep maturing in sound you will not want to have to backtrack!
Bringing straightforward blues-based rock, Lions In The Street’s newest EP, On The Lam, is five tracks of riffs, solos, and just plain ROCK. The Vancouver-based band has overcome its past label troubles to put out a sampling of the meat-and-potatoes music that it specializes in.
With college just around the corner for most of our readers I got thinking about my time spent in college…it made me realize that it is much like prison. Let’s take a look at some examples.
This week on the show Santoro and Steel Tip talk about what it takes to do the show, Stickam Shuffle, Chatroulette, the differences between east and west and doing a live pay per view. The guys also play classic prank calls and continue their head to head challenge by calling Hilton, Wawa and Boston Market.
