More three-piece fuzz for your nuzz. The Shrine will release its sophomore LP ‘Bless Off’ Mar. 11 on Tee Pee Records. Recorded at Eliminator Studios in Venice Beach, Calif., ‘Bless Off’ is the follow-up to the power trio's ‘Primitive Blast’ which was hailed as one of the "Top Los Angeles Metal Albums of 2012" by LA Weekly and one of Decibel magazine's 2012 "Albums of the Year".

Jibbies & Loond hit the town a couple of Sundays back for a great night of heavy rock music. Fitzgerald’s took what was initially booked as two shows on the same day – one tour headlined by Orange Goblin upstairs, another by Scorpion Child down – and decided instead to turn it into a mini-fest, with one ticket letting you go back and forth between the two. With the prog explorations of Lazer/Wulf, the garage cock rock of Wilson, the 70s-style greatness of both Gypsy Hawk and Kadavar, and the melodic thrash of Holy Grail also on hand, it created a metal buffet of truly epic proportions. And instead of telling you about it after the fact our duo took their gear into the field to report from the front lines while their ears still rang.

Houston’s House of Blues played host to this great summer kickoff show. Loond and I went to check it out, and here’s some of what we heard and saw. Clutch did its normal spectacular job of laying down a rockin’, rump-shaking, yet oh-so-heavy groove. They are truly a band apart, creating a whole each and every show which doesn’t only eclipse the sum of its parts but succeeds in transporting the audience to a different time and space. If they’re not already, they will...
SXSW is but a distant Los Alamos-like memory at this point, its half-life nowhere near expired, but enough decay having occurred that the feet feel normal and the mind can begin to wander to other musical experiences, both future and past. May is going to be an unbelievably full month of rock in greater Houston, with no less than the Dwarves, the Queers, Suicidal Tendencies, Sick Of It All, Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death, Kvelertak, Cancer Bats, Black Tusk, Torche, King’s X, Clutch, and The...
The rock music is a constant. But this week it’s taken a distinctly Texas twist courtesy of new releases from Houston power pop rockers Ashbury Keys and Austin heavy garage trailblazers American Sharks.
We’ll start at the lighter end of the pool. Ashbury Keys (David Keys, vox-gtr; Darwin Keys, drums-vox; and Bill Walter, bass-vox) turn in the kind of hook-laden, guitar driven, upbeat music that should already have seen them huge everywhere. Their new 5-song EP, ‘Wake Up,&rsqu...
A long time ago, on a shoreline far far away there lived a boy who liked nothing more than rifling through his parents’ record collections, putting the headphones on, and disappearing to a place even further away. Particular favorites included: ‘Sgt. Pepper’s,’ ‘Apostrophe,’ ‘Cruisin’ With Ruben and the Jets,’ and ‘Out Of The Blue.’
The first album I ever owned was K-tels ‘Disco Nights’ compilation. Grandmas are ...
