Sianvar – Stay Lost

Sianvar are a supergroup of sorts. The band is a collaborative project between members of Dance Gavin Dance, A Lot Like Birds, Stolas and Hail the Sun.

Hey! Listen to Paul Ozz

One man bands, am I right? They seem to be all the rage in the metal community in the past five years or so. This is due to a multiplicity of factors, not least of which are the Internet’s ease of use and the growing accessibility of recording gear and knowledge. Often times, this creates music which is obviously technically able but lacks the self-criticism you get when a group of people work on something together. However, it also sometimes allows strong visions that would otherwise remain silent to express themselves. With that in mind, I pitch you Paul Ozz. Going the arduous route of simply sending us an email and hoping it won’t get lost in the literally tens of thousands of emails we get, Paul is another fruit of the precious tree that is the blog inbox.
