    'm a big believer in two principles regarding punk. 1) Support the underground. 2) Support new music as much as possible. That being said I mentioned bands that are defunct. For some current and cool, check out Planes Mistaken for Star...(more)

    Punk? Well that covers a lot of ground. For brutal early Neurosis inspire thrash check out HIS HERO is GONE (see my review.) Early '80s listen to Agnostic Fronts "Victim in Pain." Also, we can never forget Black Flag (I for one like the p...(more)

    I was sure that the Bananarama song went.... "I'm your penise, I'm your fire...." Why am I bringing that group up? I ruined one of wife's favorite songs (the Sundays remake of "White Horses." Because I insisted on singing "The white ho say...(more)

    I'm tinkering with the idea of purchasing a noise suppression pedal. My tube camp gets a bit too noisey when i crank it past 5. I've tweaked the eq, lowered the gain and had modest results. One question though: does noise suppression hur...(more)

    Re: "The average music listener doenst care for the guitar lord and his musical nodddlings anymore." When did the average listener ever care? The average listener liked The Monkees more than Hendrix, The Bee Gees more than Sabbath, Micha...(more)

    I saw As I lay Dying A couple of months ago with the agony scene and was pleasantly surprised. Best hardcor bands by sub-genre: 1) mathcore- Botch 2) Crustcore/peace punk/thrash- His Hero is Gone 3) Straight Edge- a tie between Threadbare...(more)

    I haven't heard the song yet. But, I have one question: exactly how many times can a band sellout;) That term was even tossed around when And Justice For All came out (I was POed that they stole their album title from Agnostic Front) and with e...(more)

    My main rig is a straight forward as it gets. A black LTD Viper 301 which I run through a Peave Ultra Plus head. Ditto on the Death Metal petal by the way. Save your money and get an a Boss Metal Zone or an Rp-100. --Bill

    One band to remember. Emitt Otter's Jugband. They are the Alpha and the Omega. Riverbottom Nightmare Band comes in a close second. --Bill

    Another great site: www.digitalmetal.com or www.lambgoat.com Lambgoat is more hardcore than metal but they certainly cover both scenes. --Bill

    I understand why you would metion Geddy Lee.... but I have a hard time envisioning someone whose voice would work better with Rush's music. -Bill

    You hit the ail on the head re. the singer from Papa Roach. I saw them on hbo once and that dude is so amateurish that it's funny. I've seen highschool punk kids from the backwoods of South Carolina with better stage presence and better v...(more)

    Okay, i know you didn't ask. But have you considered picking up an EMG 81? --Bill

    My routine was to always take about a 1/2 mile walk before any show I played. That helped with the jitters. Also, some people find it helpful to turn their back to the crowd. Look at the bassist or the drummer and concentrate on the music...(more)

    Ditto on Coalesces lyrics, they're pretty bone headed. I actually reviewed Cave In's "Beyond hypothermia" for this site. Talk about a band which has undergone a complete transformation from hardcore to prog rock. Still, the progression a...(more)

    Chris has once again hit the provaerbial nail on the head. Much of what you're asking depends on what style you play. I would ean towards upgrading your amp..... but then again I'm leaning towards upgrading my pickups right now. EMG 81 he...(more)

    I've certainly heard the fore mentioned bands. As far as hardcore bands go.....Coalesce is pretty brutal and back in the day Groundwork (from AZ) and Rorschach were as mean sounding as anyone. I'm currently enjoying Mastodon and High On F...(more)
