Hey friends it’s that time again, time for another “list”. Feel free to offer up your big Laugh-Out-Louds and smirks for some “hits” I found appealing 10 years ago. A lot of stuff from that year was enjoyed by me, some I am rediscovering, and others were missed opportunities. Check out my “list” below and feel free to listen to the playlist I created on Spotify for this list found in the article. Remember kids, “some” of these releases may not have the best language so if you get queasy at the thought of dirty words from general market (do we still use the word ‘secular’?) bands, you may want to skip those parts. So check out my faves below and don’t forget to check out “The Best of 1997” list coming at ya soon! Continued →

Demon Hunter, metalcore act, has released yet another single from their upcoming album, Outlive, called “Half As Dead”. The band started in 2000 as a project of Ryan and Don Clark’s (ex-Training for Utopia). Over the years, the lineup has solidified as Ryan (Vocals), Jon Dunn (Bass), Patrick Judge (Guitar), Jeremiah Scott (Guitar), and Timothy “Yogi” Watts (Drums). The album is due out on March 31. The new track is called “Half As Dead”. Like all the songs I’ve heard from the new album, it’s heavy, but melodic. I have not heard a song yet where there is any of the signature Demon Hunter screams. I didn’t pre-order the album, so I haven’t heard all the tracks, so maybe there is one or two, but I haven’t heard it. Anyways, I hope you enjoy.

No I’m not going to share this song with anyone BUT I do want to share the lyrics. This is a powerful Demon Hunter song both musically and lyrically. Bringing back that classic HEAVY Demon Hunter sound along with guitar solos and banging, hard charging percussion. I’m loving this song. You can still pre-order this insane new album right here and get ready for the return of Demon Hunter in just a few weeks. Continued →

Check out a lyric video for the NYVES song “Fall Behind”, below. Their debut full length “Anxiety” will be out this coming Tuesday via Spartan Records. The subdued electronic soundscape is the perfect soundtrack for any film, rainy day mood, and life event. Ryan Clark and Randy Torres know how to clothe you in a moody, electronic wrap cloaked in mystery and uniqueness. I can honestly say there are hardly any other “bands” with this sound in the little music scene we frequent. While this is certainly no rock oriented Demon Hunter or Project 86, you can still expect greatness in the music and be entranced by the delivery. I’ve had this album for several weeks and just love it. In fact, I just received my kickstarter vinyl yesterday :). Enjoy!

Demon Hunter released True Defiance from its cage today. Check out the review.
I know we already had a Video Flashback earlier this morning from Squad 5-0 but I felt that in celebration of Demon Hunter’s new album “True Defiance”, we’d offer a double dose of Video Flashback just for today. I have posted the Demon Hunter music video for “Not Ready to Die” off “Summer of Darkness” (2004 Solid State Records) and the band’s new video for “My Destiny” off “True Defiance” which released today April 10th. Enjoy both and let’s talk about our favorite Demon Hunter moments over the past 10 years! Pick up the band’s new album “True Defiance” now wherever good music is sold. Continued →
