There isn’t a longtime visitor to this site that does not know the name Rex Brown. Most of us grew up blasting Pantera at earsplitting volumes. I went through 3 or 4 copies of Vulgar Display of Power. Some copies were stolen by friends, while some were played to death…literally. Rex Brown is truly a legend in the music business. If not for Metallica and Pantera, I might just be listening to Adelita’s Way or Pop Evil right now. Rex’s new band, Kill Devil Hill is worth your time investigating. It was an honor to have him on the show.Read the full story »
On April 15, 2014 Sevendust released their latest studio effort, titled Time Travelers & Bonfires. This acoustic offering blends the Sevendust history with a twist of stripped down acoustic instruments.
John Connolly marks the 4th Sevendust member we’ve had on our show and just like his fellow bandmates, he was a terrific guest and exemplified everything we appreciate about these guys.Read the full story »
We encourage all our listeners to check out this interview, and more important, get out to an Eve 6 show. “Oh, aren’t they that ‘Inside Out’ band?” Or, “Didn’t they play that ‘Here’s to the Night’ song?” Forget that. Their live show will make you forget those songs even exist. It doesn’t get much more infectious than Eve 6. Masterful live.Read the full story »
I remember purchasing Let Your Dim Light Shine in the mid-90′s. By then, they weren’t cool anymore. Bush was dominating the airwaves. Korn was popularizing nu-metal. Maybe “Misery” was a little silly. Maybe it was too much too fast. Still, somehow, Dave Pirner, through his goofy lyrics and odd demeanor managed to find a place in my musical heart. Their latest album, Delayed Reaction was released in 2012. Inside, you’ll find some commentary and an interview we did with Dave before Soul Asylum’s fall 2013 co-headlining run with Fountains of Wayne.Read the full story »
Almost 20 years after Rotting Pinata went gold, Sponge frontman Vinnie Dombroski sat down with All Knowing Force to discuss their seventh and latest studio album, Stop the Bleeding. After seeing them twice this past summer: once opening the 2013 Summerland Tour, and once headlining in Boston, I can safely reiterate something I’ve believed all along: this is one of the most criminally underrated rock bands in history. Enjoy the interview.Read the full story »
“I like being surprised. I also don’t like knowing the path an interview will travel. That journey makes for a more enjoyable, spontaneous listening experience. Color me impressed with Jacob Bunton. The man is articulate, genuinely optimistic and passionate about music, and… let’s put it like this – he’s the type of guy you could sit and talk music with for days. Back From the Dead, the debut album from Adler is a truly enjoyable listening experience.”Read the full story »
Listen. I’m the man with the rock in his hand.
Everclear. Filter. Sponge. Live.
We expect more. Jane’s could do better, so much better.
Billy Corgan’s Smashing Pumpkins are an absolute embarrassment live. Stay away.
