Album Review: Halcyon Way – “Conquer” (Nightmare/Masacre Records)

  Atlanta, GA based Halcyon Way formed way back in 2001 and Conquer is their 4th full length release. They have been sludging through the touring circuit for years now playing with such bands as Stuck Mojo, Fozzy, Delain, U.D.O, and Fates Warning across the US, Canada, and Europe. They have also headlined such elite prog/rock/metal fests as Pathfinder Metalest and ProgPower USA. Halcyon Way play an accomplished and highly polished form of progressive metal that is very reminiscent of Dream Theater (though quite a bit less “noodly” than DT, if you will), with large doses of power metal and hints of thrash and even a little death metal here and there. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it yet again, what usually makes or breaks a band such as this are the vocals. Vocalist Steve Braun does an excellent job here without ever really venturing full on into cheeseball territory, which is the danger when doing this type of clean, soaring metal vocal style. The only point of contention is that at times he almost sounds too much like James LaBrie of Dream Theater. He skillfully layers the vocals with harmony parts that do much to add to [...]

Video of the Day: Crobot – “Nowhere to Hide”

  Holy shit. With echoes of bands like The Black Crowes, Clutch, Thin Lizzy, and Tesla; Crobot just plain rocks. Period. We're talking that dirty, low-down boogie til' ya puke kind of rock n' roll that just crawls under your skin and makes you want to move your ass as well as bang your head. Sure, it's nothing new and it's all been done before numerous times, but these guys just do it so damn well you can't help but dig it. Everything about Crobot's "Nowhere to Hide" is just right; the riffs, the rhythms, the vocals, the guitar solos – it's a perfect example of a great rock n' roll song. And how can you deny the video itself? Zombies, crazed rednecks, and rock n' fuckin' roll. What's not to like? This Pennsylvania quartet have been rockin' since 2011 and have 2 EP's under their belts, the most recent being a self titled offering. Crank this one WAY up. And remember – if it's too loud, YOU'RE TOO FUCKING OLD!!!

Interview With Roxy Petrucci Of Vixen – Making Amends.

  About a month ago I did an email interview with Roxy Petrucci, drummer from Vixen. And for me this was a honor. I was for sure a 80's kid rocking out to bands like Quiet Riot, Ozzy, and Iron Maiden but when Vixen came out and I saw the video on this thing call MTV (It was a video music channel) I was in awe. I mean, come on, if you can tell me with a straight face that these woman were not hot and still remain that way today I will kiss your ass. Yes, I was a teenaged boy. But, I was also a teenaged boy that was starting to get into music and wanting to become a drummer and I was really into Bill Ward and John Bonham and Neil Peart. So, this all girl band (as we said back then) comes out and it was like having The Runaways all over again. I have always been into women in bands because they have to work harder to be noticed. There is no doubt, whether you were a fan of Vixen or Madem X or not, that Roxy Petrucci is a great drummer and can handle herself [...]
