Album Review: DevilDriver – Dealing with Demons I

Dealing with Demons I is the 5th full length DevilDriver album, released by Napalm Records on 10/02/2020. They were contenders for the world record of the biggest circle pit in history. They have a discography of several critically acclaimed albums. They have been shredding for nearly two decades. DevilDriver fucking rules. And Dealing With Demons is their latest and most ambitious offering yet. Part I of this double-album is exemplary of DevilDriver’s signature style. … read...

Album Review: Cyclops – Cyclops

Cyclops is releasing their self titled debut album in late 2020. This self titled debut album is a solid example of modern metal. The choruses and lead guitars are clean, but the rhythm and percussion is more aggressive and funky. I like the contrast of harmony and dissonance. It reminds me of melodic metal bands like Killswitch Engage, DevilDriver, and Amon Amarth. They have mastered the contrast between brutality and beauty. Their single, Voices, is … read...

Leaning in to the morbidity, burning black candles of La Santa Muerte, and listening to sad music. Metallica is definitely hitting the spot on this dreary day. I love their … read...

Album Review: Green Day – Father Of All Motherfuckers

The Beatles themselves, who posed with butchered baby dolls and claimed to be bigger than Jesus (punk as fuck), also aspired to become the “Toppermost of the poppermost.” The line between rock and pop has always been blurred. And, like The Beatles, Green Day … read...

Lyrical Analysis: Green Day – Macy’s Day Parade

Intro: Macy’s Day Parade is a single from the album Warning, released by Green Day in the year 2000. I consider myself to be a free spirit. I do what I think is right, even if it feels like the whole world is against me. I march to the beat of my own drum. I am neither a leader nor a follower, but a lone wolf. Living in my solitary, self indulgent fantasy land, sometimes … read...
