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.

What do you get when you mix two of the 2000's most trendsetting bands and have them tour in 2014? One awesome show with two bands that have some emo lyrics yet deliver them without being mushy or lame. Well, the two are currently touring in support of neew releases, it will be cool to see how the new music meshes with the old, and how the band has matured, or not. Ripping into DC's legendary 9:30 club face down (if you will) while Hawthorne Heights will return to the venue face up, having to deal with the return to the venue where they discovered their orignial singer dead on the tour bus, so I'm sure this will be an emotional show for them, and wouldn't wanna miss it. You won't wanna miss it either, two of the coolest bands from early 2000's delivering their brand of Rock and Roll for you to enjoy. Celebrate 10 year anniversary with Hawthorne Heights, scream along with the band and RJSA this Sunday at the 9:30 club.There are VIP packages available.

As the Palaces Burn was released theatrically on February 27, 2014. Originally intending to follow the heavy metal band LAMB OF GOD throughout the world to demonstrate music's potential to tie culturally diverse fans together, filming for As the Palaces Burn abruptly took a dramatic turn when lead singer Randy Blythe was arrested on charges of manslaughter, and blamed for the death of one of their young fans in the Czech Republic." What followed was a heart-wrenching courtroom drama that left fans, friends, and curious onlookers around the world on the edge of their seats.
See what top press outlets had to say about AS THE PALACES BURN:
“As the Palaces Burn is not your typical rock documentary… As the Palaces Burn emerges as a gripping tale of a band whose existence was threatened by the very image they worked so hard to project.”
– The Hollywood Reporter
“In a movie with so many admirable qualities, the finest is that, however much group is covered, we never lose sight of the fact that a 19-year-old fan went to a concert one night in 2010 and ended up losing his life. For that reason and more, this is an unmissable film.”
– Kerrang
“… gripping… a fascinating, Kafka-esque portrayal of every musician’s worst nightmare.”
– Guitar World Magazine
“‘As the Palaces Burn’ is truly unique. The film’s honesty fuels the viewing experience, documenting the abandonment of its own original concept without bailing on the fans.”
– Loudwire.com
“a unique rock documentary”
– The Village Voice
