By this point, you should all know I love Cancer Bats, so with that said I was very excited to learn the band had released a short documentary titled Zeroed In. The documentary centers on the bands most recent offering, Searching For Zero. It’s a really cool watch and it’s just under twenty minutes, so you’ve got plenty of time. If you’ve been digging the new Cancer Bats record, then check out the video after the jump. Continue reading
Cancer Bats are one of my favorite Canadian things ever. And I love Canada. The band has never made music that I didn’t enjoy and this continues over into their music videos. The latest video that the Bats have released is for their song “Beelzebub,” which is a brilliant track and a really cool video. Shot while the band was in the UK, the editing is superb. Check out the video after the jump. Continue reading

When you go into a new band, name is key. At least at first. You see, if you see a band with a powerful, simple name, you can latch onto it and say “_____ fucking owns.” It’s that simple. When I was introduced to Power, I immediately heard that their music falls directly in with their sound: they are Powerful. Their Black Flag-influenced hardcore is a thundering array of stunning aggravation. I recently caught up with vocalist Evan Somerhiser and I am stoked to premiere a song off of the bands upcoming release Heavy Muscle. Get chu some.
Well, you can’t discount Poison Idea for being dishonest. The band has called off all of their upcoming tour dates and have gone on an immediate indefinite hiatus. The band has sited “some health/sanity issues, personal matters and addressing some unfortunate band behavior.” So, at least they were up front about their whole situation to an extent. We don’t know the exact reason for the hiatus, but it’s gotta be something serious. Farewell.
The band recently released their new album Confuse & Conquer on Southern Lord.
You all know I love Cancer Bats. I shouldn’t have to reiterate. Well, the band has released a new music video for their recently released Searching For Zero. The album was released last month by Metal Blade and the band recently did an in-store performance where a live performance footage music video for their track “True Zero” was shot. It’s a cool video and a great song, so check it out below. Continue reading
Wolfnote, my new favorite band of 2015, will release their new album next month and they have premiered a new track titled “Sick,” which you can hear below. This track is my favorite off of the bands three-song, self-titled EP and, if you never listen to me again, listen to Wolfnote. The band features two members of Harm’s Way, but don’t expect to hear hardcore. Wolfnote is very different. It’s great. Continue reading

This video is for their song “Dark Light Of Seduction” which is one of the more chilled out tracks on Anxiety’s Kiss. I really dig the song and video is very dark and very cool. Check it out below.

Recently I was introduced to a new band with some familiar faces. Those faces belonged to Bo and Chris from the band Harm’s Way, whom I adore. This time around, these dudes came in the form of Wolfnote, a rad new band with a completely new sound for these guys. I reviewed the bands debut EP recently (see here) and I wasted no time to hit up Bo Leuders, vocalist and guitarist of Wolfnote and got down to the nitty. Check out my full interview after the jump where we talk about the band, Bo’s IMDB profile and more. Continue reading

Check out “I’m Big, Bright, Shining Star” below. Continue reading

I am one of those people who always crave something new and interesting. This is most definitely reprensented in the music I listen to. At the end of every year I clear out a large amount of my iPod to make room for new music, something intriguing that I haven’t heard before. Well, this year I have experienced one of my favorite records of the year and it consists of only three songs. The band is Wolfnote and they consist of two members of Harm’s Way. However, if you go into this EP think you’re going to experience Harm’s Way-style hardcore, you may be disappointed. If you go into it with an open mind, I think you will be happily surprised.
