Reverse Mechanic: “This Hole In My Throat” (ft. Michael Shynes) – a deep message

Minneapolis hip hop artist Reverse Mechanic released a stunning single in 2016, entitled “The Box”.  The track was a response to hatred, bigotry, and societal pressure, to not stand out or be different. “In the midst of so much racial, political, gender-based, and general social tension; it is important to celebrate our differences and remember that humanity cannot fit in a box,” said Reverse Mechanic. Now he kicks 2017 off with a brand new release entitled “This Hole In My Throat” (feat. Michael Shynes). I was almost scared to listen to the track, for fear of being disappointed. Just how

Slowfall: “Speak Up” echoes with a confident radio-ready croon!

With influences like Goo Goo Dolls, Lifehouse, Train, and Third Eye Blind, the project provides an eclectic Rock/Pop Alternative twist with lyrics of love, loss and hope. Slowfall has just dropped the Lead-off single “Speak Up” from the upcoming “All These Seasons” album set to release soon.

With Her Debut Album On the Way, The Young Rapper Has Joined Forces with Famed Brooklyn Teens Who Also Made Waves at an Early Age Performing Everywhere from Coachella to The Vans Warped Tour and Opening for the Likes of Guns N’ Roses and Motorhead New York, NY (January, 2017) — When it comes to crossing genre lines from hard rock and heavy metal to rap and hip-hop, plenty of bands have made successful crossover hits from Jay Z and Linkin Park to Public enemy and Anthrax. But in recent years as some of these iconic collaborations have fallen to

Natalie Jean: “Red Room Remix” – a dynamic EDM reworking!

Anybody who has heard Natalie Jean’s  album “Unafraid”, will remember the diversity of the tracks that frequented that release. They are all-intense, all fleshed-out arrangements, that problably represented Natalie’s best all-round collection of songs so far. From that album you would also remember the cutting edge, eletro-pop single “Red Room” . A track that never resolves into a shameless pumping session, but full of ideas dragged from deep emotional effect, with subtleties that crawl out slowly but steadily. The hidden lyrical cues to uncover its beauty are scattered from verse to chorus, making it a flavor that one keeps coming

Magazine Gap: “In Two Minds” – woos listeners with its sensitive musical combination

I can’t even quantify in enough words how much I love “In Two Minds” the latest video-single by British crossover band Magazine Gap. I call them crossover, because any one label, even a genre as wide as rock, is too small a box for them, even though they’re just three guys. These three, infuse their rock with strong flavors of soul and funk. This new ballad which about having ‘mixed feelings’ stirs up so many emotions with its soothing, but thought provoking lyrics and cruise control-like musicality. I usually keep any music by Magazine Gap within arm’s reach, and this

Charles Luck & Tino Red: “One Love” – modern-day urban troubadours

That Charles Luck & Tino Red already go together like time and the tide has become a known fact. On each subsequent recording these fellows sound they’ve just gotten to know each other a little better. Their latest collaborative project, the single “One Love” is a little different from a typical Charles Luck track. He’s always been a great lyricist with catchy music. But I feel like this track departs from his normal sound that somehow captures both a high energy mood with a laid back feel. The music here is a little mellower overall. But his lyrics seem to go to

Benny S Riding High With “Victim Of The Game”

Spontaneous The Go Getta releases hustler’s anthem “Gotta Get It”

Spontaneous The Go Getta aka SPT recently brings in the New Year with a huge hustler’s anthem for the masses called “Gotta Get It”.  This is the ultimate turnup song of the year!  On “Gotta Get It”, SPT shows you the grind and determination to making something from nothing. His story is about flipping packs, getting money, and feeding his family.  SPT delivers 2 flawless verses over a high-energy Kid Flash beat.  On the chorus, that showcases SPT chanting, “I just gotta get it, I just gotta get it”, ties everything together very nicely, giving the listen something to sing-along

Da Heat kicks off 2017 in great style!

Born and raised on the Eastside of Detroit, Michigan, Willie Whitfield, better known by his stage name Da Heat, is an American rapper/singer-songwriter, who developed a love for lyrics and sweet melodies, by way of his mother playing songs from artists such as Stevie Wonder, The Isley Brothers, and Luther Vandross. However, growing up, a series of terrible decisions led to Da Heat’s incarceration in a Boy’s Home in Mt. Clemens, Michigan. All the way through, he refused to lose focus, continually practicing and improving his craft when battling other MC’s. While never allowing his trials and tribulations stop him,

Chaos Theory: A Blistering Assault On The Ears

Chaos Theory, is fronted by singer/songwriter Rock Johnson, who along with members Lex Coulstring (guitar/vocals), Scott McKenzie (lead guitar), Tim Garagan (bass) and Craig Brown (drums) complete this melodic rock and alternative metal band.

Chaos Theory’s self-titled debut album, hit stores to praiseworthy reviews and critical acclaim, and it’s easy to see why. This album is pure “energy rock”, it displays all of the band’s technical strengths, adding mature and reflective lyrics to  melodies filled with anger, frustration, a building rage, and an overall intensity. Front-man Rock Johnson adds the final ‘cherry on top’, as he tears the lyrics apart from the depths of his being.

I listened to the entire album, track-by-track, and didn’t once have the urge to switch off or skip one single song. It’s a rare thing for that to happen, so I applaud these bad-ass boys for crafting such a strong, unified debut album. The songs are all masterfully crafted, drawing on Chaos Theory’s strengths; its strong powerful vocals, dirty cranked-up amps and driving rhythm section. Many of the songs hit you like a runaway train with their powered guitar riffs.

Straight-off “Remind” is a blistering assault on the ears, and Rock Johnson confirms how uncannily close, to a mix of Ozzy Osbourne and Sammy Hagar he sounds. Likewise, “Save Yourself” and the fierce and nasty “Afterthought”, are both venomous yet catchy and downright crunchy. “Silhouette” is also a rollicking affair, and the inclusion of “Dead Inside” keeps the album’s intensity genuine. But most surprising is the swirling, brooding “Broken Dream” and “Scarred” with its dreamily powerful ambiance and melodic vocals.

Make no mistake though, most of this album is meant to please the heavy rock and metal fans who like the harder side of Chaos Theory. It contains some of the heaviest songs written, and a couple of atmospheric tracks that complement the album nicely. Moreover, the album possesses the best assets of this band; fierce, crunchy alternative-metal, representing the brutal beauty of their music, bared for all to see.

Chaos Theory leaves the best for last, as the penultimate track, “Hollow Heart”, is perhaps the most powerful, radio-ready hit song on the album. Overflowing with crunchy riffs, hooks, solos and unbridled energy; the twin guitar sound, drive this song like a hurricane, while the vocals soar high above the pounding drum- and-bass engine-room.

Chaos Theory close the album down with a solitary piano theme, almost as if to allow you to recapture your breath and runaway heartbeat, after eleven tracks of awesome power, raw energy and great musicianship.

It is clear that the angry vocals with crunching guitars, great basslines, and quick-wristed drumming are definitely going to establish this band as a rock solid outfit!
