Savannah, Georgia based metalcore band Me and The Trinity have just dropped their explosive final album titled “The End of All Things Is Here and It Is Not What I Expected It To Be”. Check it out below and download for name your price. Any purchases of the album will go towards two great non-profit charities of which you can read about right here. If any independent band is going to take a final bow, this is the way you do it. A great parting message and heavy music that moves you. For some reason I can’t help but be reminded of early ZAO (The Splinter Shards…. era) and that’s a definite good thing. Check out this independent release below. Continued →

Raging metalcore act, DIRE has released their third single off of their upcoming EP, Depths. The track is called “Beyond Reach”. The track is brutal! But that’s no surprise; DIRE always brings the heavy with their music and message. Another thing, it would appear that DIRE has a new member (or maybe an old one) in the midst of their lineup. Former Guitarist Kyle Robinson has rejoined the band. Keep that in mind when you check out this new track and the other two that came out.

The insanely talented metal(core) band, War Of Ages, returns with their politically charged new anthem titled “Cut Throat”. The song and it’s lyrics are basically an answer to all the movements on both sides that incite violence and hatred without offering any clear direction. It’s a hopeful call to arms in a biblical sense and doesn’t hold back lyrically. This is a band that has always stood for what is good and right and clearly points people towards a biblical worldview without being ashamed. Bold and unafraid, ready to share in love and out of a love that comes from a relationship with our savior Jesus Christ. Musically it’s heavy hitting, explosive and abrasive metalcore with a message the world definitely needs right now. This my friends is “Cut Throat”. Continued →

I’ve been pleasantly surprised that “Machaira” has been as well received as it has. It’s a bit slower in tempo than what we’ve released to date. Not that I’m complaining though… I appreciate Indie Vision Music for premiering this lyric video. It’s been my favorite one. There is a subtle, yet powerful imagery to it. Hopefully, the viewer will dig a bit deeper into the song meaning. 2017 has been an exciting year for XIII Minutes. It’s great to release our newest Digital 45. We hope that our listeners continue to stay tuned for future music – Jamie Kucinski (XIII Minutes) Continued →

Yep, the list you’ve all been waiting for (not really) is finally here. Feel free to offer up some laughs and critical remarks for the music I listened to the most 20 years ago. You’ll notice a heavy T&N presence and I just couldn’t help myself. There were a lot of albums and releases I found myself spinning back then and still getting plays today. I think that’s where this list falls in place, it’s the albums that had the longest lasting impact with me and had a catchy sound that I just couldn’t get enough of. I ride more on the commercial, melodic side of the market rather than all that arty ear splitting noise rock ;) I created a special Spotify play list that you can find near the end of the article. Some of these titles are out of print and only available in YouTube form so enjoy those unheard hits within 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 the 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 2007” list which can be found here. Hop in your time machine and let’s get ready to party like its 1997! Continued →

You have to check out this music video from Indiana based metalcore band, From These Ruins. The song is called “Slave To Nothing” and appears on the band’s recent album “Advocate of the Unwanted”. Their sound would please fans across the metal board and have a very diverse sound. If you’re into groups like Killswitch Engage, Bullet For My Valentine, Demon Hunter, Sleeping Giant, and even Sevendust, you’ll find something appreciate in their music.
