Fitzgerald’s/Transmission honeymoon over

Well that didn’t take long. Barely a week after their first show together, the relationship between Houston live music fixture Fitzgerald’s and Austin-based concert promoters Transmission seems to be unravelling (has unwound?). At the heart of the matter, according to booking-agent sources, is Fitzgerald’s failure to perform many of the upgrades it agreed to as part of the partnership under which Transmission became the venue’s exclusive promoter. Foremost among the ite...

The Jibbies & Loond Show: Episode 067 - We're all Venom's children

With apologies to the mighty Loond for its lengthy delay, I hereby unleash our latest podcast! We discuss the might and influence of Venom and delve into technology-vs.-rock, with Nothing More used as an example that the two can co-exist. New music from Lucifer (ex-The Oath, Gaz Jennings), Tao Cross (ex-Amebix, Away), Goatsnake, and Armored Saint gets evaluated and the eyes of metal also fall on Superjoint, Ten Foot Beast, Headcrusher, Faith No More, Motorhead, Anthrax, and Saxon.

Armored Saint - Win Hands Down

It has been five years since the release of 'La Raza' and the mighty Armored Saint are back with a new record chock full of more classic Heavy Rock/Metal anthems. Much like 'La Raza'; 'Win Hands Down' is built on a chassis of Modern Rock song structures. There is still that classic Metal vibe, but this record is less inspired by NWOBHM as it is by the Heavy Rock of today. With that said; 'Win Hands Down' is another timeless album of songs that will endure when the next fad has come and gone. My ...

The Jibbies & Loond Show - Episode 066 - Guest Host Zaid Hydari

Welcome to another episode with a guest host...my little brother Zaid. In this episode we get a perspective from a member of a younger generation on Metal.

We also talk about Metal from an international perspective...especially from an Eastern stand-point. The episode culminates in a conversation about the awesome Iraqi band Acrassicauda. Horns Up! &ndas...

In this episode Loond, who was diligently paying attention all year, and Jibbies (who was not) discuss the former’s list of Top Albums for 2014.

My Favorite Albums Of 2014

 Death Penalty – Self Titled (Rise Above Records) – One of the finest Riff Merchants of our time, Gaz Jennings (ex-Cathedral), has put together a phenomenal band and record for 2014. The weight and heft of the cascading riffs on this record are glorious. Michelle Nocon has some incredible pipes and her vocal performance is spectacular. Memorable, catchy, mid-tempo stomp ‘n swagger, infectious thick groove, with deadly doses of doom. Can’t stop listening to this slab ...
