DEGRAVE – Degrave (July 27, 2018)

DEGRAVE – Degrave (July 27, 2018)

While trends come and go and certain styles seem ephemeral in their passing, thrash metal will never die. Missouri’s Degrave are ecstatic about serving meaty riffs injected with speed and psychedelia.

MACHINE HEAD – Catharsis (Album Review)

From 1998 to 2002 it seemed there were three bands I would see at least once every nine months by pure happenstance.  Sevendust, Coal Chamber, and Machine Head.  Always opening for a band I was there to see or playing to early risers at festivals.  It just seemed I couldn’t go too long without seeing them.  While I saw Machine Head around five times in that four year period.  It wasn’t until the release of…
