GFM - Framing My Perception (Official Music Video)

The ladies in GFM just dropped their music video for the electrifying new song, “Framing My Perception” of the EP of the same name which just dropped yesterday. I’ve listened to the whole EP and I am beyond impressed with it. They are a young group of musicians but listening the EP you certainly can’t tell. They’ve got the experience and music chops to back up the final product which is an awe inspiring collection of songs sure to impress everyone including those most hardened critics who just can’t seem to have any fun.… Continued →

GFM - Framing My Perception (New Song)

GFM just dropped a brand new song which is their first for 2022 and as a part of Rockfest Records. The 3 sisters have found their sound and that sound is astounding, taking them to the next level. I’ve always thought these girls had it in them to record soaring music that would touch the lives of many but just needed a little extra push. “Framing My Perception” is that perfect push and if this doesn’t get played on radio or have their video shared, then tell me I’m wrong.… Continued →

REVIEW : Relent - Heavy

Relent has been around and making music longer than most realize; most likely myself included. A 2 song ep in 2016, the Heart Attack ep (2019), the re-release of the Heart Attack ep (2020), with 2 new tracks, and now a full length, aptly titled, “Heavy”. And yes. Yes, it is. From the first listen to these guys a number of yrs ago, I was hooked. I’m a sucker for downtuned guitars with well constructed grooves, thunderous drums, and a mix of rapped/sung/screamed vocals. So this band has really checked all the boxes for me since day 1.… Continued →

Best of 2020: Rob Jensen

I was going to write a little intro to this list of mine, but in the end I figured I’d just let it speak for itself. Alot of great music dropped despite all the year brought us and these are my top 20. Let me know what you think!     20. Everything In Slow Motion – “Influence”. (Rock/Hard Rock) Released 10/16/20 on Facedown Records. Influence was the band’s first release since the 2016 ep, Laid Low. While it didn’t feel like a whole lot of new ground was covered, that is a good thing, especially considering their sound.… Continued →

REVIEW : Relent - Heart Attack (Revisited Review)

A little over a year ago, I wrote a review for “Heart Attack” by new(er) nu metal band, Relent. Recently, the band has re-released the ep on Rockfest Records and so, I thought I’d re-review the re-release. Without looking back to the review done last March, let’s revisit “Heart Attack”, including the newly added tracks. I will say that since the initial review done last March, my love and excitement for the ep hasn’t waned a bit; it has longevity. For an album, much less an ep, to maintain its excitement and “go-to” factor after a year says something.… Continued →

Relent Drop New Track, "Low"

If you’ve yet to hear Relent, you’re missing out. The nu metal/hard rock outfit from San Antonio came out swinging with their debut ep, “Heart Attack” last year that was a front to back slammer. The band has more recently signed with Rockfest Records with plans to re-release the debut ep, which will include their newest song, “Low”. The song deals with the subject of depression as well as addiction and talks about the hope we have to overcome it. Excited to see what the future holds for these guys.… Continued →

New Video From Seventh Day Slumber: "Man Down"

Seventh Day Slumber dropped their newest album, “Closer To Chaos” in 2019 and the album was chock full of hard rock tunes. One of which was “Man Down”, a song that addresses PTSD, something many men and women who served in our armed forces deal with as a result of the sacrifice they made defending our nation and freedoms. Check out the new video for this song below and let us know what you think.… Continued →

Zahna - "Your Gun, My Knife"

Zahna has quickly become a favorite of mine. Her debut album, “Red For War”, dropped last year and really exceeded my expectations. Hard hitting hard rock, smooth melodic vocals, powerful screams…it really impressed. “Your Gun, My Knife” was one of the tracks that stood out to me on my first few listens and today, the music video for that song was released. Check the video out below and let us know what you think!… Continued →

Amongst the Giants - Too Late (Official Music Video)

Amongst the Giants released a beautifully scathing album, “Obscene” last year. If you haven’t heard it yet, you’re really missing out. On my personal “Best of 2018” list, I gave them the #1 spot for a reason. Give it a listen and I think you’ll quickly see why. But I digress. Just a couple weeks ago, the guys released a new music video for the song “Too Late”. The video is really impacting and touches on some pretty real issues a lot of people face. Great message.… Continued →

REVIEW : Review: Amongst the Giants - Obscene

A while ago, I remember hearing a small snippet of a track from a band I would later find out was Amongst the Giants; just a few seconds in length really, but based solely on that, I already had high expectations of what was to come and was eager to hear more. Then, in April, that “more” came in the form of the bands first single, “Lost In Translation” and my expectations rose even higher. So, when the time came, and it was announced that the debut album, “Obscene” would have a November 16th release date, it really felt far away.… Continued →

REVIEW : The Protest - Legacy

The world  is full of grit, seriousness, and dark themes within media. Whenever something “fun” comes around, it’s a nice change of pace.  The Protest’s debut album on Rockfest records, Legacy, provides a Christ-centered, lighthearted yet heavy hitting album that’s perfect for some summertime head-banging. The southern rock intro and uplifting chorus of the opening track “Valor” kicks off the album in full force and doesn’t let up until the album ends. The lyrics of the chorus are focused on persevering through hard times through Christ, “All the oppression we will take it, take it in stride.”Continued →

Amongst the Giants - Lost In Translation

Amongst the Giants is a relatively newer band signed to Rockfest Records. The lineup includes Seventh Day Slumber drummer, Blaise Rojas, Brian Boyd, and Marco Pera. The three-piece has a really great, monstrous sound that walks the line of hard rock and metal. You can catch them on the Summer Rockfest tour this Summer with the likes of Seventh Day Slumber, Spoken, Random Hero, Zahna, and Gold, Frankincense, and Myrhh. Check out their lyric video for the song “Lost In Translation” and find them on social media to stay up to date on what these guys are up to.… Continued →
