Her multi-octave range frenzies as hard as any dude behind a mike, and easily transitions into a soulful, nearly R&B singing style that makes SLS totally unique in what they bring to the table.

Hatebreed's Jamey Jasta / Hatebreed
Well, my philosophy with the whole label is that I want to work with young bands that are hardworking and they know that they have to do everything themselves. Either you have it or you don't. You're never going to acquire, like, no one's ever going to say to you, "Here you go. Here's record sales and huge tours." You've got to work for it, and either you have that attitude or you don't. That drive, I mean.

Lynch Pilson
Jeff Pilson becomes a metal sexual shaman on Wicked Underground. I havenít felt such a sexual shaman since Morrison of the Doors. George Lynch turns up the heat on this vision quest. Who the fuck would have thought metal and shamanism made such a good mix? Lynchís background yells take you to the next level-deeper and stronger. Wicked Underground is a grinding, hot story and I love it. That picture of the two little boys on the inside album liner is misleading. Wicked Underground is for fucking grownups kiddies. It is a sexual vision quest of the highest order. I can see Jim Morrison, Jeff Pilson, and George Lynch dancing with the Native Americans on stage leading the tribe in a healing explosion of sexual energy. Pilson and Lynch send shivers up my spine and grab my soul. This album is a masterpiece that will live for lifetimes. It is a Grammy winner. If this album is not nominated, then we know the fucking Grammys are fixed and that true musicianship is not respected. Lets break the album down. It is time to take that Moonlight Drive into the world of Jeff Pilson and George Lynchís vision quest for the tribe.

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.

Contact High

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 boss?
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.

Alice Cooper
Brutal Planet was released by Alice Cooper in 2000 on Spitfire Records. Sometimes something is so fucking intelligent and excellent that it deserves a look and press well after the release. Look at it this way, Star Wars I came out years after Star Wars IV. Isn’t Cooper that fucking good? Doesn’t he deserve the prologue treatment like Lucas gave Star Wars? Music Incider thinks so. Baby Tender Love thinks so.
I don’t care what my fucking brother Charlie thinks. He doesn’t own my fucking magazine.

Banned from Utopia
So Yuh Don’t Like Modern Art is a brilliant and fun debut cd from a cast of characters known as Banned From Utopia. The size of BFU reminds me of the big bands from the forties. You know, during the time when music was not programmed into a fucking keyboard. Banned From Utopia was formed as a tribute to Frank Zappa. Guys, wherever Frank may be, I am sure that Dancin’ Fool is proud. There are no holds barred on this cd. Listen carefully and you can hear hard rock, jazz, country, and classical. BFU does not want to bore the listener. It is funny and musically complex. This cd has six of Frank Zappa’s original instrumental songs. “Tink Walks Amok/Thirteen” is a combination of two Zappa tunes.

Opeth
Deliverance From the Stockholm Syndrome
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

Must
If you threw Steven Tyler’s voice and Bono’s voice into a blender-you would have Dave Ireland’s voice. Dave is the perfect Australian margarita. Dave blends his voice with Reuben Alexander and Kaiser to turn out the finest that Don Julio has to offer. These three guys have a huge and sensual musical sound. Who the fuck needs a live drummer to hold it together? Kaiser’s bass holds it together. Must is a modern day Buddy Holly with a kick in the ass update. Buddy Holly would be doing the music Must is putting out if he was born in this day and age. I see why Tyler And Company picked them for the Atlanta show. They kick ass. They would be a great appetizer for a Danzig show. The American band, Cursive, would be a great opening act for them. They would complement each other perfectly

Opeth
The Second Coming of Opeth
Damnation

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.

Peter Huttlinger
Did you ever see that movie Final Destination? Every time death was coming a John Denver song would play. I got spooked over fucking Rocky Mountain High for months. I would look up every time I heard the name John Denver. Don’t get me wrong-I am sorry the man crashed his airplane. But what the fuck man! I don’t fly because fucking airplanes crash and famous people die. Let’s take Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Patsy Cline, and the Big Bopper as examples. Patrick Swayze tried to crash himself to death in a plane, but he never cut a record did he? He dances, but that is as far as his involvement with music goes. I, for one, have too much shit to do so crashing in a plane is out of the fucking question.

Greg Koch
Radio Free Gristle
Greg Koch


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.

The Wrist vs. The Futurist Party
“Go Home and Tell Your Parents Everything Is Gonna Be Okay” (Part 2)

The Wrist Vs. The Futurist Party is ANOTHER overlooked brilliant Atlanta band. They are also another band that has been labeled ‘EMO’. The Wrist Vs. 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?
The answer is The Wrist Vs. The Futurist Party. Jeremy (jw) delivers Little Five Points, Georgia lyrics with a sultry, seductive voice. That voice is

Adrian Legg
When you hear Adrian Legg for the first time, you see the colors of a rainbow. You know that his spirit guides and the angels are playing along with him. Playing with him is one of the greatest guitar players that has passed away-Stevie Ray Vaughn. I also the hear styles of Jeff Beck, Steve Vai, and Lennon and McCartney-when the Beatles would do their ballads. Adrian holds his guitar as if he were holding a six months old child.

Annie Minogue
Lessons in Love


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.

Billy Talent-Demo
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

Ricky Byrd
Tough Room…This World was recorded live at The Bitter End in Manhattan. Byrd’s vocals remind me of Lou Reed with a heart. His acoustic style slams. It is like he is bringing that guitar back from the dead. That’s what you call a fucking New York Libra on guitar. Kasim Sulton’s bass is so bluesy that it is like a well mixed drink. He complements Ricky’s style. Simon Kirke’s drumming is such a change from when he is playing with Bad Company. If you were making a stew, Ricky and Kasim might be the meat and potatoes, but Simon is the graceful gravy.
The musical styles on the cd are bluesy, jazzy, r&b, soul, and little rock and roll.

Paradise Lost
The Fallen Angels of Paradise Lost

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.

Tribe of Judah
The Fuck Power of Exit Elvis

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.

Systematic
PLEASURE TO BURN lets you imagine burning away that pain and starting over fresh. Fuck with SYSTEMATIC, and you will be a PLEASURE TO BURN.

If you love Metallica, you will love Systematic.
