Shattered Sun

News image

Shattered Sun is an up-and-coming metal-core band and I was extremely honored and proud to engage these new metal artists. Being a Hispanic and sharing a love for the genre made this interview a bit special. How so? The entire musical line of this band happens to be Hispanic. My conversation with vocalist Marcos Leal was quite insightful; we touched on a lot within a short period of time. The direction and future of this newly minted project was astonishing. Shattered Sun is a sextet hailing from the small town of Alice, Texas. Their sound provides hard hitting riffs laced with Leal's unique vocal assault. The band provides ripping arrangements tooled in advance by its founder and guitarist Daniel Trejo along with input from their drummer, Robert Garza, who lays down some fierce acrobatic drumming. I can assure you it's a collaborative effort as the vocalist describes it and the musical foundation is laid brick by brick. Shattered Sun is a true testimony to the hard driving sprit of its members, a definite cohesiveness that eludes many bands today. They've all grown up in an area riddled with violence, gangs and drugs. All too often we hear how the...

Chiodos: Devil

News image

Chiodos is back with a vengeance on their fourth album, "Devil". The band has produced a sonic masterpiece that takes the listener on a musical and emotional roller coaster ride. Original vocalist Craig Owens and drummer Derrick Frost are back in the fold, and form the twisting and turning track for the rest of the band to ride upon. Keyboardist Bradley Bell, bassist Matt Goddard, and guitarists Pat McManaman and Thomas Erak play with wild abandon and stellar technical prowess. Owens uses every facet of his vocal ability to deliver the full range of emotions necessary to match his lyrics. He is the rare vocalist who can sing softly and sweetly, loudly and angrily, and everything in between. "Devil" is full of great songs of all styles of rock.

Blackberry Smoke@Innsbrook After Hours—Glen Allen, VA. 8-20-2014
Saturday, 30 August 2014 22:42    | Written by Brandon Delano    PDF Print E-mail

The 20 Years Strong tour featuring Blackberry Smoke and Gov't Mule stopped in Glen Allen, Va. at Innsbrook After Hours pavilion. The evening kicked off early when Blackberry Smoke took the stage just before 6:00 p.m. The early start time didn’t keep people from turning out and filling the venue though, and Blackberry Smoke didn’t disappoint as they kept the crowd dancing and singing along throughout the set. Blackberry Smoke, who are still out on the road in support of their latest release, "Leave a Scar," kicked off their set with "Six Ways to Sunday" and kept the crowd on their feet through Led Zeppelin's cover of "When the Levee Breaks" before closing out the set with "Ain't Much Left."

The set list from the night was:

“Six Ways to Sunday”
“Good One Coming On”
“Crimson Moon”
“Sleeping Dogs”
“Sanctified”
“Everybody Knows She's Mine”
“Whippoorwill”
“Ain’t Got The Blues”
“Don’t Do It”
“One Horse Town”
“When The Levee Breaks”
“Ain’t Much Left”

Blackberry Smoke will continue to tour throughout 2014, so make sure to get out and catch them at one of their upcoming shows.  The band’s tour dates can be viewed at http://www.blackberrysmoke.com/tour.html.

R.E.M. UNPLUGGED
 BOTH 1991 AND 2001 SESSIONS AVAILABLE INDIVIDUALLY ON VINYL SEPTEMBER 2 

 
 
LOS ANGELES - R.E.M. delivered two knockout performances on MTV's acclaimed "Unplugged" series, the first in 1991 and the other in 2001, giving them the unique distinction of being the only band to headline the series twice. Earlier this year, audio from both shows was released for the first time as a limited four-LP vinyl set that sold out instantly on Record Store Day 2014. Vinyl enthusiasts that missed out on the four-LP set can rejoice as the 1991 and 2001 will both be available individually as 2-LP sets on September 2 for a suggested price of $39.98 each.

M.I.L.Fest 2014 @ Fish Head Cantina--Arbutus, MD. 8-9-2014
Friday, 29 August 2014 10:53    | Written by Dawn Lemay    PDF Print E-mail

I took great pleasure in telling people I was hosting the MILFEST, and I shamelessly self-promoted the event, reveling in people’s response to the name of the festival. First would be the obligatory head turn, like, “Did I hear you correctly?” then followed by the crocked smile, and finally the stifled laugh (the sound that you make when you try to hide your amusement, but can’t). The Maryland Independent Label Festival – The MILFEST – was anything but a joke, maybe a play on words, but not a joke. The event, in its 8th year, was the best yet. The event was heralded in numerous magazines, webzines, and even had its own special event magazine edition printed and distributed by Shockwave magazine.

The MILFEST has grown and gotten bigger with a loyal following that supports the festival every year. JaySlow, creator of the event, was even able to participate this year, as he took the stage and drummed with his band “survival of the sickest.” The all-day event, which started at noon, was family friendly allowing children in until 9:00, but when the sun went down, the fun really started: MILF drinks in color changing souvenir cups, life size Jenga, some of the best unsigned local talent, the “Scarred and Dangerous Show,” and the MILF bikini contest, which turned into “take your clothes off and get up on stage for cash and prizes.”

I would like to thank everyone who participated in the event – security, bartenders, ticket takers, t-shirt sellers, crafters, the bands, the fans and more - you made the MILFEST an unforgettable experience. From beginning to end, the Fish Head Cantina was filled with music, laughter, and a sense of unity. Bands played with passion and then mingled seamlessly into the crowd – it was one big family. I was honored to be a part of the MILFEST, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Signed,
Dawn of the Underground
