Mower is a fresh new alternative rock band coming out of Germany. Their music is classified as “Alternative Stoner Rock”. They currently have two tracks out, “Red Liz” and “There She Goes”. Each track possesses rock vibes which bring to mind the work of Chris Cornell (Audioslave).

SOUNDSTREAM - Maximum Drive [Album Review]

The latest artists to come our way, an Ukrainian electronic music group that goes by the name SOUNDSTREAM. The latest album release by this group is a 2015 release called Maximum Drive. The album is 16 epic tracks of pure techno goodness. The elements which make up this album are very reminiscent of the electronic music of the late 90s - early 2000s. Each track on this album is a high energy dance experience made for the club scene. Each song is a unique masterpiece and at times I feel there is some psytrance influences lurking in there.

Shining Force [Artist Review]

When it comes to heavy metal, it’s difficult not to envision incomprehensible, devilish sounding lyrics and something out of a Rob Zombie film, but the latest band to come our way is a group who calls themselves “Shining Force”, and they are not your typical metal band. Shining Force is no stranger to the Christian metal scene. The come straight our of Pasadena, Texas. Now “Christian Metal” is not a genre I regularly listen to but I have to give credit where credit is due. These guys were able to grab and hold my attention with well crafted riffs and solos in every song, reminding me of artists such as God Forbid, Judas Priest, and Devil Driver. Randy Dickey’s vocals sound much like that of Bruce Dickinson (vocalist of Iron Maiden). These guys need no introduction but lets talk a little about how Shining Force came to be.

Johnny Jabbour "BAMF" [Album Review]

Rocks come crashing down on your heads and then are levitated as by magic. This is what it is like to experience Johnny Jabbour's music. The man can rocket to the moon or float on the ocean on a calm day.  All of his music is clever and smart with layers of sound and rhythm that lead you down a path owned by Johnny.

Johnny's music is powerful and commands your full attention. The attention given to his emotions in his song "Where U Go" puts the listener on the defensive. You find your self rooting for the singer as he is losing the one he loves. In " I'm going to miss you" he declares. " Always sing my song" "It is a part of me, take it".  The listener understand that if she takes his song she will always be with him. The music is soft with a rock edge.

Janna Pelle: Creativity with Every Key

Janna Pelle may have out done herself with her latest album, “Key Change”, a concept album taking all who listen on a trip though the evolution and history of the piano from harpsichord to synthesizer. Janna is a classically trained pianist and incredible DIY pop music singer/performer straight out of Brooklyn, New York. Her beautiful voice and incredible on-stage theatrics might just make her Brooklyn’s next big thing. Combining elements of rock, soul, and dance into her live performances, Janna has the potential to make some real big waves in alternative-pop scene, comparable to that of her influences, Fiona Apple and Lady Gaga.

Voices of Terror - Once Upon A Nightmare... [Album Review]

This week we got a chance to listen to and review the latest album by Alternative Rap duo ‘The Voices of Terror’. The album, which is properly titled “Once Upon A Nightmare”, is nothing short of pure originality and genius combined with a very eerie undertone that may give you goosebumps while listening. These hardcore beats heard though out this album are not for the faint of heart. If you have been looking for something that stands out from the crowd and really makes noise, this album is for you! Each track of the album is uniquely composed with instrumentals that include elements of HipHop, Rock, Metal, and Dubstep. The Voices of Terror meet each track with a high level of intensity comparable to that of Linkin Park or Hed PE.
