Song of the Day: Jaded Thorns - 130

Jaded Thorns were a grunge band that hailed from New York . Releasing 2 LPs & disbanding, this was a band that I wished for more of.  It is hard to find much on them as their record label did not last long. Both Epiphany & Things My Father Taught Me were on Word of Mouth (The Roosevelts, Sides of the North, Mending Point, Poor Man’s Riches).… Continued →

New Peter118 Track, "Waiting" (Free Download)

Yesterday, Peter118 released a new track on Raven Faith Records called “Waiting” and it really took me by surprise. For those acquainted with the Peter118 sound, you’re in for a big surprise as well. Up to this point, the band has played an edgy, raw punk rock, but this is like Peter118 meets Green Day (Nimrod/Warning era) meets 90s grunge and truthfully, the 90s grunge part stands out the most. … Continued →

REVIEW : Mayfly - Vereor Deus, Non Dogma

Progressive ("recycled") Nu-metal act Mayfly will release their new EP "Vereor Deus, Non Dogma" next week through Voluminous Records.
