Profile: Caroline Harrison

I often find myself beginning profiles of people I know by telling you what a great person the profilee is. Well, this one isn’t going to be much different.

This particular release was recorded live in studio and fully captures the heart and soul of what this band is all about. It’s unorthodox, jagged, mind bending, and all that in just three songs. But to cap it off, we also get a gritty Death cover that (no surprise here) the band absolutely owns. Continue reading

CANTO: Disturbed’s back (almost), Slipknot’s going away (kinda), and Tool’s playing Halloween (yes)


Greetings! It’s Monday and I’m busy as all hell. So here we go.

Our editor-in-chief should have been at this show, but couldn’t make it. (READ: was off touching himself instead) Oh well. Later, kids.
