This is a fucking true story about how I learned about Alice Cooper. Everyone has some kind of evil sibling; mine was my oldest brother Charlie. He loved Cooper as a teenager. One day I was eight, my friend Raymond came over and we cut up all my brother's monopoly money. » Read More
This is from the Eagle Rock Entertainment's press release regarding the new Manson DVD: "This will help you see what it's like to be nailed to his wrecking ball," says Manson. Hey Marilyn, do you have some sort of delusion» Read More
Napalm Death rains fire with Order of the Leech. Napalm is a political death march punk band. Punk never asks us to think. Punk just asks us to be angry, with the exception of Napalm. Order of the Leech is fast, hard, and smart. Fans of earlier Napalm work will not be» Read More

Album: Five Deaths
The vocalist of Thundercore, Bret Simmons, is like a combination of Bobby Blitz and Dave Mustane. The guitars of Mason and the Morley brothers remind me of the guitars in Kiss and OVER KILL. I can hear shades of D.D. Verni, Jimmy Page, Joe Perry, and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Stacy Copas could hang with D.T. of Andrew W.K. Thundercore's music is a throwback to AC/DC, but heavier. It screams take, give us a try. It is angry, heavy, and raw. It is fucking bitching. It is grindcore like Napalm Death. It is metal like OVER KILL. This band keeps going. They do not give up.
I would go to see them in concert. I think they deserve a major label. They should open for OVER KILL. The East would be meeting the Midwest, and what a very cool combination that would be. It would be a kick ass tour, and a rare combination.» Read More
Black Earth is a dark metal Van Halen with a lead that reminds me of Alice fucking Cooper. Dale Christie should take that as a fucking compliment from MusicIncider. His vocal style varies, but he keeps the Cooper edge. His fucking voice is ass kicking. It beats the shit out of you. It makes you wonder what he is going to do next vocally. He is a fucking strong man. The drum performance reminds me of Lars Ulrich of Metallica. Brian Tonne's drums and Duane Conn's bass are like two perfectly entwined trees rooted together into one fucking power source. Savage and Crider on guitar remind me of Randy Rhoades and Ted Nugent with a little George Thorogood tossed in for good good measure. Those two guitars are like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a fantastic fucking mix.
I would lister to their music. I would buy their CD. A label has to pick them
up soon before they get lost in the wind. If I were to pick anybody for them
to open up for, it would be Alice Cooper. Let's see if Sharon Osbourne can pick
them up, and how fast.
