Protest the Hero North American Tour spring 2014

With the addition of Mike Semesky on vocals and a super strong album release to show, Intervals have hit the road with several other fantastic artists including country-mates Protest the Hero, who released the critically acclaimed Volition last year, UK’s The Safety Fire (who also shredded into our 2013 favorites), you-could-easily-mistake-them-for-modern-vikings Battlecross, and post-rock excellence Night Verses.

With such an insane tour at hand, it only seemed polite to offer you photos of their performances. Please enjoy these shots from March 8th, 2014 at Mojoe’s of Joliet in Illinois.

Currently on tour with Protest the Hero, Battlecross, The Safety Fire, and Night Verses, Intervals have still managed to find time to release a new music video. You know, even with an album release and flipping their van on black ice, they’re still out there and working like total bros.

Please to be enjoying the new video for the second track from A Voice Within, ‘Moment Marauder.’

NAYON

Due to work circumstances, I haven’t really been able to write a lot for HBIH in the second half of the year, but music is what kept me going through the long, tiring days at work the entire year. Without further ado, I present you the 15 albums, 3 EPs and 1 video that really became a part of my daily routine and made my life much more colorful. I really enjoyed listening to these over and over and I feel like they’ve become a part of me. That’s what matters with music, right? Also, I put a link/embed to listen to my favorite track from each album, so you can enjoy them like I did!

Without further ado, bring on my arbitrarily ordered list of enjoyable albums from this year that you should take seriously!

I’m going to skip the intro because I know most of you just want to read the list.

riptide

Man did 2013 pass quickly or what? It feels like it was just last week that I was composing this same list for my albums of 2012. Speaking of which, this year sure does kick last year’s ass all kinds of ways when it comes to the music. In fact, in my experience they were complete polar opposites – 2012 delivered lots of good albums, but few truly great ones, whereas in 2013 I found myself digging way less music quantitatively, but almost everything I did end up liking was just amazing.

Well, scratch that, there probably was just as much good stuff released but I simply didn’t have the time for it. I completely missed a lot of albums that I have a sneaky suspicion would be up my alley (Scale the Summit, Exivious, Havok, Doomriders  etc.), and I definitely have a ton that I enjoyed but still haven’t spent much time with. So yeah, let’s begin with those, and then get to the juicy part.

2013 has seen large growths in the, quite frankly, already sweaty regions of punk n’ roll, progressive metal and retro blues rock. Naturally, this has made me a very jolly fellow. You might be able to spot a few of the more impressive additions in my all-singing, all-dancing end of year list. Happy xmas to one and all!

BTBAM headlining tour 2013

Almost a year after the release of their conceptual opus, The Parallax II: Future Sequence, Between the Buried and Me took to the road to perform the album from start to finish. Known for having a top notch booking agent and stellar lineups, they brought The Faceless, The Contortionist, and The Safety Fire in tow for support. New contributor Nick Budosh caught the final stretch of the tour in Baltimore, MD. Catch his photos from the show below.

the safety fire eggheads

That title will probably only mean something to those of you in the UK, but a while back you may remember The Safety Fire announcing that they would be partaking in a TV quiz show entitled Eggheads that pits 5 members of the public against a group all known for their comprehensive general knowledge. The Eggheads have some pretty impressive credentials when you look through it and it’s fair to say a lot of them have made a living off these general knowledge quizzes (there’s even a millionaire in there from the days of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?), but can they stand up to the moustache-laden power of British tech-metal?
