BREATH & A SCREAM- This song takes me on the first psychic trip that I had when I was eight years old after my car accident. I thought I was losing my mind. Hereís our hero in the song all grown up having the same battles. No one can understand that feeling unless they have gone through it. This song marks the beginning of the albumís spiritual journey.
BEAST IN A BOX- I can see our hero in this song sitting inside a church talking to a priest. Our hero is confused and doesnít understand the voices and the visions that he is having. So the priest tells him he is evil. He has to turn off the visions in his head. It has to be the devil talking to him. He shuts himself down because he doesnít want to go to hell-he puts the spiritual growth (beast) in the box. He should have told the priest to go fuck himself.
WHEN YOU BLEED- The visions come back, and his guide finally appears in front of him. He canít believe this is happening to him. His guide pushes him to do better and be more. His guide has not introduced himself yet and he thinks he is hallucinating. Our hero hates this guide. He doesnít understand. All of these visions that he is having is making him feel like he is going crazy. His hatred toward his guide makes him feel like he is bleeding inside.
VACCINE- When I die, bury me with an oxygen tank, a bottle of Jack, and a carton of Marlboro Reds. Be sure to put a key to the crypt in my pocket so I can get out. In other words, who the fuck needs Zoloft, Prozac or any other anti-psychotic medication? We are born the way we are. If people canít accept us for who we are, the automatic answer is you need medication. My answer to this is-if you canít accept me for who I am and how I am go fuck yourself. Parents should listen to this song. Are drugs another way not to be a parent?
EVER HIGHER- This song is Lynch/Pilsonís version of the Footsteps prayer. This song is about spiritual death and rebirth. He goes to the guide for help, but doesnít trust him fully, and the guide takes him to the next level. The song is beautiful-it gives you hope.
ZERO THE END- Near death experience. This song is about where you go and what happens when you die. It can be taken as either a spiritual or a sexual orgasm. In the end, it doesnít matter. For example, do you think Bush will be redeemed?
THE EVIL THAT YOU ARE- This should be the first single off the album. Self-medication doesnít help. It cuts the visions. The song reminds me of a battle between good and evil. Everybody has a dark side that needs a hug. It is a Danzig type of song. He must fucking love it.
AWAKEN- This is a love song. It is a great fucking song. The energy in it is just supernatural and pure. It grabs you by the balls. It makes you realize that every moment on earth should be cherished. Be grateful for the people that love you. It is time to forgive, not to hate.
CROMANIC- The guitar and the bass on this song electrifies you. The song is romantic and rage filled at the same time. It makes you feel like you are in a swimming pool of lust with the demons knocking at the door of your soul. If they are knocking, are you going to let them in?
GOODBYE UTOPIA- Goodbye to the perfect life. Look how much the world has changed. It is a very political song. We are watching the old world crumble before our eyes. Nobody is doing a fucking thing to save it. We wake up with the threat of being bombed every morning. The man that has the key to save it is flushing it down the shit hole.
INNER VIEW- This is the hot one. In a lust-filled soulful way it awakens your mind to look at the emotional side of life. We take a shower everyday and comb our hair. We eat. We shit. We piss. Do we bathe our spirit? Do we bathe our emotions? Do we bathe our psyche? Do we bathe our soul?
CLOSER TO NONE- This song is the beginning of the same psychic trip we started on at the beginning of the album. Life is about the trip, not the destination. Donít be afraid to take the trip. You have all of the answers that you need inside of you.
If I was to give stars, this would be a five out of five. This is a learning album. It is a bath for your soul. Everyday we need to bathe that soul. The album makes you take a walk on the spiritual wild side.

New York City’s newest band is Contact High. Contact High consists of
vocalist TC and songwriter Anthony Recchia. TC’ voice sounds like many
people that have come before him. I am reminded of Live’s lead singer,
a softer Eddie Vedder, and a New York Bruce Springsteen combined. Contact High’s
music is a sampler platter of classic rock, metal, and modern rock. It has a
great fucking beat with a kick ass touch of the blues. Their music is alive.
Why isn’t the Springsteen camp getting a hold of these guys to open for
The EP has four tracks. The first track is called GET. GET is going to be Contact High’s signature song, much like Thunder Road is Bruce Springsteen’s. It is fucking intense and deep. The hero in the song says, ‘Look at me Baby. Things are tough but I am going to keep going. Come if you want to, but I am going.’ Not A Moment To Soon is an updated Born to Run. It is a great kick in the ass. It twists your fucking soul. She Takes Me is the lovers side of Jungle Land. It is about a lover that has passed away. The song proves that love is the only thing that survives. It survives even death. Kurt’s Song is Contact High speaking up for Cobain. Everyone knew his name, and they abused it. We can thank the major corporations for killing a brilliant artist.

Mikael Akerfeldt has a voice that reminds me of Frankenstein singing fucking Danzig. The listener can hear the mad, insane edge in his voice. He creeps into your soul and rips you apart. This is one guy not to listen to stoned. You will have nightmares. Can you imagine the nightmare? Mikael dressed up as Frankenstein? Peter Lindgren reminds me of the great, late Randy Rhoades, of Ozzy Osbourne fame. He is powerful metal god guitarist to be. Martin Lopez, to me, is like John Densmore. He is a fucking rock poet on drums. Martin Mendez’s bass playing is like the battle for heaven in Milton’s Paradise Lost » Read More
Damnation is the answer to Opeth’s Deliverance. The fury and edge of
Deliverance is gone. Damnation is poetry for a soul riddled with grief and pain.
Akerfeldt has an incredible fucking range with his vocals. Frankenstein sings
from his own wounded soul while holding the shattered pieces of his heat in
his hands like a jigsaw puzzle. He wonders how to put the broken puzzle back
together again. Peter Lindgren shows us that he is growing into his own style
of guitar playing on this album-he still keeps a little Randy Rhoades in the
background. Martin Lopez is the ultimate death march drummer as always. Lopez
is Frankenstein’s beating heart. Martin Mendez’s bass playing is
the blood pulsing through Frankenstein’s veins into his brain.
Hey man! Did you know that Doctor Demento’s fucking guitar-playing twin made an album? That fucking funny guitar-playing twin is named Greg Koch. His little intros in between songs are worth the price of Radio Free Gristle-they are some funny shit. Radio Free Gristle is a throwback to the days when radio was cool and fun to listen to. You know what I mean, back in the day when turning on the am/fm was worth a damn? Koch created the kind of airplay he wants rather than waiting for some corporate machine to put it into some canned, pre-programmed radio piece of shit rotation. That makes Mr. Koch an original.
Those funny little bits between songs showcase a wicked guitar player. You have to love the way Koch abuses that fucking guitar. He makes it howl, cry, holler, whimper, and scream. Today’s metal players would do themselves a favor by listening to Radio Free Gristle. He can beat it up easily with the likes of Eddie Van Halen and Randy Rhoades. Koch is a guitar players guitar player. The cd had some great fucking playing on it. It is one hell of a ride.» Read More

The Futurist Party tells the story of every struggling musician in Atlanta. Atlanta has an alive and talented music scene, but who the fuck is listening? Who is speaking the truth about their lives? Who is being original?

Annie Minogue-Love Parade
Welcome to the world of Annie Minogue. Her voice makes it a spiritual place. Annie’s voice is soothing, peaceful, and kind with an energetic kick in the ass. You can hear the blues come out of her heart. When you first hear her, you get the edge of Melissa Etheridge and Courtney Love. Maybe Courtney should take some lessons from Annie. You can feel the spirit of Janis Joplin watching over her. Annie could be a cross over like Shania Twain or Faith Hill. If MusicIncider had a chance to coin a new genre, it would be Passion-much like Cursive is labeled EMO.» Read More
I like these guys. They’re cool. They are fucking honest. They say what they want to say and don’t give a shit what fucking people have to say. You can feel them kicking the skeletons out of the closet with their Harley’s on. They sound like a really fucking pissed off Everclear and Offspring combo with a twist of Faith No More. If Deborah Harry was a guy, she would sound like Ben the lead singer. Ian D’Sa is a fucking madman. He is himself. He just » Read More
Hey all have ya heard about the new band out of Buffalo, NY known as Grand National? These guys are not The Hives or Good Charlotte. They should be known as the reincarnation of the Beatles. Yes, that’s what I said, the Beatles. No, » Read More
The musical styles on the cd are bluesy, jazzy, r&b, soul, and little rock and roll. » Read More
In the battle for heaven, legions of angels fought on both sides. The fallen angels in the band that calls itself Paradise Lost mourn the loss of heaven in this sacrifice offered up to us entitled Symbol of Life. Nick Holmes, who sounds like James Hetfeld’s twin brother, delivers a fucking soul-wrenching vocal performance. The vocals are backed up by the driving guitars of Aaron Aedy and Greg Makintosh. Lee Morris and Stephen Edmondson combine their drum and bass performances to give a definite heartbeat to every track on Symbol of Life.» Read More
An orgasm is a little death. The heart stops for a brief moment in an explosion of passion and fury. This is the only way to describe the music on Exit Elvis. The slow build ups are like foreplay. The electronics and keyboards are exciting teases leading up to the ultimate climax of rock guitars and drums. Mellace, on guitars, plays like an angel from heaven and a devil from hell. Those guitar riffs of his make you ache inside for more. The music is so powerful that it makes you want to rip off your clothes and fuck. Elvis was a sexy bastard at a young age. Cherone’s voice make you feel like he is right in the room with you. The combination of vocals and music on this album twists your mind. Tribe of Judah is what the Smashing Fucking Pumpkins wanted to be.
Left For Dead tells us about the death of God. » Read More
