Seether: Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces / Seether
Shaun Morgan: "I would like to thank family, friends, bands and fans across the world thank you for helping me and my family through this tough time. Eugene, I will miss you forever and keep you in my heart. I love you, little brother. Rest in Peace."

Straight Line Stitch: When Skies Wash Ashore
Straight Line Stitch: When Skies Wash Ashore / Straight Line Stich.
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'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.

Buckcherry, 15
"The first time I came to Atlanta, it was like a big pussy waiting to be fucked" - Josh Todd

Josh Todd, born April 4, 1971. He's your typical Aries; a self-made man, sexy, gorgeous, and what a crotch on him. I'm dead serious. He's not just a musician. He's an actor who's fucking awesome.

Nouvelle Vague
Women soften the world, teaching men how to caress and finesse problems; that is, how to get their way sweetly, without yelling or swearing (too much). Two men created Nouvelle Vague, French for New Wave, which demonstrates an appreciation for the beauty and value women bring to the world. It is a surprisingly well-executed and soothing resurrection of post-punk (loud, angst-ridden), redefined and set to more mellow music, and soft, sultry solo – mostly female – singing.

Blood Meridian
I'd rather be kicked in the face than hear Kick up The Dust again. Named after the blood-bath novel that depicts the extremely bloody border struggle to remove (read: kill) Native Americans along the Texas-Mexico border by Cormac McCarthy, the band from Vancouver, British Columbia – executes along their namesake's lines in their newest release on V2 Records. It is painful, in that existential "each of us is alone, and life is just there" kind of way.

Ane Brun
Without any hint of an accent, the lady from Stockholm - Ane Brun - sounds much like a melancholic, but sweet, Ani DiFranco – without the pointed pronunciations and machine-gun style. In her tastefully artistic, calming style, she recounts the time following her recording debut. It soothes souls, even if she only meant to help herself. The lyrics are poetic, and reveal so much about her journey in that year.

LowBuz - Breaking Point
How can this CD cover not grab your eye? An alerting, safety vest orange is cast against a visibly damaged background that highlights the band's name: LowBuz. Fuck, the name alone is attention getting. The distressing cover art visually supports the album name: "Breaking Point."

Blood Brothers
V2 Records Sorry myspacers, Blood Brothers only has some knock-off artist sites and some hip-hoppers of the same name. Band members - Jordan Blilie, vocals; Mark Gajadhar, drums; Morgan Henderson, bass, keyboard; Cody Votolato, guitar; Johnny Whitney, voc

Grandaddy
Grandaddy is repetitive, alternative pop, mellow, spacey, and atmospheric: where guitar meets synthesizer and where Jason Lytle plays his heart out and sings along with the rest of the band - guitarist Jim Fairchild, keyboardist Tim Dryden, bassist Kevin Garcia and drummer Aaron Burtch. This is their final CD together as they broke up last December.

Lonn Friend - Book Review - Life on Planet Rock

Jeff Buckley's Message from the Afterlife
Jeff is dead 10 years now, and everyone seems to forget him. The only one who truly remembers him are his mother, his record label, his true hard-core fans and fellow musicians.

Star Wranglers
The cover art for this, their second CD, pictures a tattoo drawing of a skull with knives driven in with a backdrop of a pool of blood. Perfectly appropriate for psychobilly, though the music's fairly tame guitar use does not seem all that "psycho" and more rockabilly; that is, country with a steady umpah-umpah rock beat.

Tom Petty, Highway Companion Review
The album cover is everything from Katrina, from 9-11, and the war. When you compare this album to his last – The Last DJ, where he took the music industry on like he did 20 years ago. He took out against Big Corporate Joe, and how the game is running.

Chris McKay & The Critical Darlings

Hanna McEuen
Talk about history. This duo is first cousins who grew up playing music together in their shared hometown of Evergreen, Colorado. So, what, you say? Well, their mothers are twins (Rae and Kae) who both married founding members of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Jeff Hanna and John McEuen.

Tenpenny Joke
Musically, they incorporate world influences effectively, which provides a compelling enough reason to listen to this CD. They successfully take us on a musical exploration. They do it convincingly, without causing confusion from track to track.

Bound By Substance
Their site puts it best: "Farina and Marino bring solid rhythmic movements and distinctive bass lines; Colacito builds complex moods by combining the two elements of tranquilizing arpeggios and aggressive riffs. To complete BBS's soundscape, Rzonca adds a few more layers of colors with his soothing vocals and bright piano/organ melodies."

Dexter Freebish, Tripped Into Divine
Music-wise, it's an enjoyable CD, lively palatable music set to visually driven lyrics that you can see. The music is great, and the lyrics are tangible and paint a picture. I've provided a tasting of their CD, as you might like some surprises when you go out and get your own.

Inferno
Headbangers delight. Best played loudly. They are what Sami loves about music. They're soooo good. They can actually play. It's not about tricks and charms. It's all about shredding and complimenting one another. They're amazing. They're self taught. It's all natural talent. You don't see that much in a band anymore.

Linkin Park, Minutes To Midnight

Stiilpoint
Dave "the Face" Gabbard, is not a part of Stiilpoint. He is the president and owner of Southern Metal Records. After being a member of Nothingface from 1994-1998, Dave felt he was being pushed out by fellow members of Nothingface, and he decided to leave the band. I quote this from the mouth of Dave Gabbard. He should not be called Dave "The Face" Gabbard. Instead, he should be called, Dave "The Drunk" Gabbard.

Juliette And The Licks
Juliette Lewis unleashed her inner lioness when she set out as a musician, forming the Licks in 2003. Though, she'd been hinting at her new career since 1994 when she was in Melissa Etheridge's Come to My Window, though I haven't seen her in the video (and I own it.)

My Chemical Romance - The Black Parade
These five band members are very pissed about their country being bombed. The hit single I'm Not Ok, on their sophomore album, was a major message to everybody in the world and in the U.S. that the youth in the U.S. was not ok with what was going on. They were confused, perplexed, and did not understand what was going on.

Enders Game
It's like a New York punk band/Southern rock band with some flattering glimmers of other artists. You hear sounds that remind you of a young Chris Cornell singing, Dave Grohl on skins and Dave Navarro on guitar. And, you get that Cliff Burton effect with Shon on bass.

My Chemical Romance, Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge
Before we start anything on this review, let's get this straight. Listen up and listen clearly. Everyone loves My Chemical Romance. Me too. But, as you're going through this CD, you'll notice it sets the stage for The Black Parade. We included this CD to juxtapose Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge against The Black Parade. Three Cheers was the band's answer to 9-11, but it includes themes seen in The Black Parade. What will follow the Black Parade? Is this going to become a trilogy?

Instead, this girl meets a gorgeous country boy who is always there for her, and understands her mental, physical and emotional needs. They can't understand why their daughter falls for a country boy? Have you seen them lately? They're hot.
