Tonight We Tribute Tonight - "This is Spinal Tap" Part 2

M. DREW: Let's run with your posit for a moment that metal culture no longer exists in a cohesive sense (which I still dispute, but I can't debate without arguing in circles, which will get us nowhere.) We can at least agree that metal culture is fractured and in some state of disrepair. There's almost certainly a qualifier in front of the word 'disrepair,' but which one and how serious it is, is likely in the beholder's eye.

Tonight We Tribute Tonight - "This is Spinal Tap" Part 1

CHRIS: Metal's history in the movies is not particularly long or illustrious. All of the odd glances and snickering asides that metal gets from music fans of other stripes are magnified when the medium changes, as filmmakers seldom know what to do with a form of music that is the aural equivalent of a Michael Bay movie (take that for what you will). Most of the time, we end up with metal either being portrayed as music for idiots, or are subject to movies that try to deal with the subject matter with respect, but are terrible attempts at film. I'm looking at you, "Rock Of Ages".

Album Review: Edguy - "Space Police - Defenders Of The Crown"

No metal band has meant more to me over the years than Edguy. They were the first heavy band I got into, and have remained a favorite throughout the ensuing years. While many were criticizing their decisions, whether the comedy that crept in on “Rocket Ride”, or the modern darkness of “Tinnitus Sanctus”, I was firmly in their camp. Fans may have been wishing for the band to return to the style they perfected on “Hellfire Club”, but their refusal to stay in place is one of the things I like most about them.

Checking it Before Wrecking It - Johnny Gorilla of The Shovell

Fresh off the release of their eclectic record "Check 'em Before You Wreck 'em," we spend some quality time with the humorous, quirky and excitable singer/guitarist for Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell, Mr. Johnny Gorilla. We get a chance to talk the band, the music, the mascot, the industry and a couple other small things. Cheers, mate, drinks all around.
M.DREW: Walk me through this new record – what’s new for fans of your previous work?
JOHNNY GORILLA - Even better songs, riffs, energy, studio sound, musically nothing much has changed, just good old bass, drums and guitar heavy rock. We just upped everything a notch or two!
M.D: How has the sound of your band evolved from the last album to this one?
