Devil You Know Sculpting New Songs

Devil You Know

They literally just released their debut a couple of months ago, and already, Howard Jones — formerly of Killswitch Engage — and his new band Devil You Know are working on new tunes. Far fucking out, man. To be honest, I barely listened to Devil You Know’s debut, mostly because it didn’t really grab me […]

The recording process for Locrian’s new album has wrapped. Some of you will no doubt be pleased by this news. The band recorded the as-yet untitled effort with producer Greg Norman at Electrical Audio in Chicago, a hell of a city.

Under The Radar: Dead In The Dirt

Dead In The Dirt

In the end, I really respect the straight-edge movement. Not particularly the uber-evangelical guys, because they make it into a fundamentalist religion of sorts. “BE SxE OR DIE AND BURN IN HELL” is just too Pat Robertson to take seriously. The dudes and dudettes who actually live their beliefs and set a good example are […]

Zeena Koda Launches New Podcast

Zeena Koda

That’s right, folks. Zeena Koda, former Sirius XM Liquid Metal DJ — and the author of GSA’s long-running advice column, Ask A Bombshell — has launched her own podcast. It’s called Litterboxx. Zeena is also good friends with GSA’s founder, and so, we told her we’d give her a little press for her new production. […]

Liferuiner Not Breaking Up


Canada’s own Liferuiner have released a statement claiming they are not breaking up. I didn’t know there was a chance they were going to throw in the towel. I didn’t even hear a rumor to that effect, but…whatever. Says the band: “So after almost 10 years as a band, writing and recording 3 albums, a […]

The Misfits Playing Gwar-B-Q

The Misfits

Man. Lately, it has been a struggle to get motivated. Some days, I just want to sleep in until the sun goes down. Yet, here I am, writing posts for this blog. Three energy drinks can’t even keep me from dozing. It’s weird. I literally just want to sleep all day, which might have something […]
