CLUTCH are about to open the Book of Bad Decisions (September 7, 2018)

The mighty Clutch have set a September 7th, 2018 release date for their forthcoming new album Book of Bad Decisions. The album was recorded at Sputnik Sound Studios in Nashville. This release marks the first time Clutch have recorded with producer Vance Powell, who is best known for his ability to capture a band’s “live sound and vibe” in the studio setting. In no way am I saying that previous Clutch albums are lacking in…

An Evening with Philip H. Anselmo

An Evening with Philip H. Anselmo

Before we get started here, set aside everything you think you know about Philip H. Anselmo, frontman of the legendary juggernaut of a metal band, Pantera. Not to mention DOWN, Superjoint Ritual, and Philip H. Anselmo & the Illegals. Oh, let’s not forget being the head of his own label, Housecore Records (the word “rest“, is not in this man’s vocabulary ). Now picture a man humbled, remorseful and dead set on rebuilding his name and reputation…

Album Review: Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats – The Night Creeper

Album Review: Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats – The Night Creeper

 Who in the hell are Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats? That is what I’m asked whenever I mention the name of this band. Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats, are a four piece band formed in 2009 in Cambridge, England. I first heard of the band sometime within the past year when a friend told me to check out their last album, 2013’s Mind Control. After the first spin, I was in for the long haul. The…

Now after a long hiatus, the band regrouped in 2010 and followed up the reunion with multiple European tours and the 2012 release of the Stairway…

Maryland rockers, Clutch, declared war on The Vogue Tuesday night in Indianapolis.

I even met a guy with the band’s logo tattooed on the front of his neck to (in a sense) commemorate the last Clutch show he attended only to break his neck…
