Powerman 5000-transform

This is what turns me on about Powerman 5000: they never give up. They are
fucking hot. They are great fucking performers. The cd sounds like a live Powerman
5000 performance. The energy off the cd is forceful. Spider reminds me of Billy
Idol, and it is not just the hair.

NothingFace: Skeletons

I was driving around Little Five Points in Atlanta, Georgia and saw fourteen NothingFace
stickers on twenty cars. That alone tells me NothingFace is a band to watch. When
I found out they were on OZZFEST, I got a hold of TVT and they sent me a press
kit. Skeletons was in that press kit. Skeletons has blown me away. Everybody has
Skeletons in the closet-you know, shit they don’t want to talk about. NothingFace
drags our countries Skeletons out of the closet, dusts them off, and walks them
around for everybody to look at. The truth is finally out there isn’t it?

Marilyn Manson-The Golden Age of Grotesque

Starring Tim Skold as: THE BASSIST, accordion, keyboards, synth bass, electronics,
and the SHAPER of much.
‘Primal Meter Interpreter’ Ginger Fish: THE LIVE DRUMMER, and the
leader of all rhythm divisions of marching and big band korps. Manson’s
balls have grown back on The Golden Age of Grotesque. Who should we thank- God,
the Devil, or absinthe? He has not done an album this beautifully fucked up
since Antichrist Superstar. Manson, on this cd, has become the werewolf with
the bloody, dripping mouth howling at the full moon-and he is beautiful. He
is sensual.

Korn: Untouchables

I went to go see Korn at Madison Square Garden last year. It was an outrageous
stage show. Fifty thousand people banged their heads along with Jonathan Davis.
Untouchables won a grammy. Jonathan Davis redid the theme song from The Twilight
Zone in a dark, fucking spooky sort of way.

grade 8: Debut CD Review

Where do they come from?-The Tooker Brothers are from New Jersey, but the band
formed in LA.
What a fucking amazing first cd! Grade 8 has a sound that is like Slayer, Rage
Against the Machine, and Pearl Jam in a WWE King of the Ring match. Do not compare
them to fucking Korn and the metal hip hop thing, they are not about the fucking
darkness falling-grade 8’s style is better compared to the first heavy
band to do it successfully, Rage Against The Machine.

Godsmack: Music Midtown X/Faceless

From: Boston.
I have always loved Godsmack. Atlanta loves Godsmack. I saw Godsmack at the
Music Midtown X in Atlanta. Sully’s big sister introduced the band and
thanked 99X for being the first station in Georgia to play Godsmack on the air.
I watched at least one hundred thousand people cram into the back parking lot
of Sci-Trek in front of the 99X stage completely hypnotized by Godsmack

Endo: SONGS FOR THE RESTLESS

Endo is from: Miami. Who the hell does Endo sound like if you have never heard
of them?
They remind me of Live, Sublime, Stone Sour, and The Doors on a Moonlight Drive.
This is a band with a sound that deserves to be on OZZFEST, and I am glad that
they have made it there. Sharon made a great choice.

Gene Loves Jezebel: Exploding Girls

Michael Aston has a hypnotic voice. He has always reminded me of Gary Numan. Gene
Loves Jezebel has always reminded me of The Cure. If you like NIN, or the Cure-you
will like Gene Loves Jezebel. –The new cd on Aston’s label, Bless
Momma Records, is fucking beautiful.

Damone: From The Attic

From: Waltham, MA
.
Damone takes it name from a character in Fast Times At Ridgemont High.
Songwriter Dave Pino wrote all of these heartbreaking tunes trying to
get an ex back. Needless to say, it didn’t work. –But that
busted romance has found a home where it can live forever on Damone’s
cd debut, From The Attic. -They found a perfect vocalist in Noelle LeBlanc,
a Waltham High School senior.

Chevelle: Wonder What’s Next

From: suburban Illinois.
I would have liked to have been at the first barbecue the Loeffler boys
played. I bet those hamburgers tasted really fucking good-because those
boys turned into Chevelle, and Chevelle is not the same old tired shit
that’s out there today.
