If you just happened to not check out Mouth Of Swords last year then that’s fine. I mean, if you want to miss out on one of the best new bands around, making some of the best music of their career, then that’s OK – I won’t stop you. But if you genuinely missed it, then there’s still time for redemption as the band have unveiled a new video for ‘Glass Crush‘, which was easily my personal favourite. Check it:
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.’
There are so many worthwhile tours being announced that I simply cannot keep up. The latest A+ trek to be announced for North America this Spring is a Protest the Hero headliner featuring support from Battlecross, The Safety Fire, Intervals, and Night Verses!
No long introduction. Let’s just get down to business. View Full Article »
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!
