The crowd was on their feet that night at the Mod club in metropolitan Toronto. They were waiting for the pink-haired goddess of this electro-industrial pop rock mystery that so patiently crawled into music stores to appear on stage. Dave Ogilvie’s dream team was being tested. With an album to show and talent to share, Jakalope is one of the most interesting bands you’ll see this year.

Theory of a Deadman is back with their second full-length release entitled Gasoline. The group’s self-titled first record was released in 2002 and quickly came to receive great reviews everywhere. Songs like “Nothing Can Come Between Us” and “Make Up Your Mind” were instant hits for this band from Vancouver, Canada. The group falls into the musical category of emotional hard rock, and although the y have very similar sound to fellow Canadian band Nickelback, rest assured that there is a distinct difference in sonance which sets the two apart.

It is a well known fact that with age, wine only improves in taste and quality. Coincidentally the exact same scenario proves to be true for Papa Roach: a four piece rock band from Vacaville, California. Recently the group released Getting Away with Murder; their third album since April 25th, 2000 when their debut record Infest hit…

Just like so many other artists who have released greatest hits collections in the past year, hard rocker Marilyn Manson has followed suit with his first ever best of collection. The last we heard from Manson was his 2003 album The Golden Age of Grotesque, a comeback album of sorts for him after the mediocre Holywood from 2000. Now he is back with a seventeen track collection of his best material, ranging from…

Much like Green Day, R.E.M. and so many other bands, hard rock act A Perfect Circle has jumped onto the political bandwagon with their latest record. Released on U.S. Election Day, only a year after their second album Thirteenth Step, Emotive is a collection of ten political and anti-war cover songs along with two new tracks. Getting political is something new for A Perfect Circle, as their last two albums were typical hard rock records…

Zack de la Rocha is an extremely talented and influential individual best known for his musical masterpieces created while still with his former band, Rage Against the Machine. The name of the band alone is, in some senses, a summation of Zack’s true character: a wildly rebellious man whose primary goal is to simultaneously push others to think for themselves and encourage social and political reform.

After a lengthy four years since their last proper studio album, punk rock band Green Day is back with one of the most hyped albums of the year American Idiot. Green Day of course was one of the biggest bands of the mid ‘90s and the band scored a huge success with its Dookie album now over 10 years ago. Many people (including myself) thought Green Day was finished, but the band has proven us all wrong coming back with the…

Remember Live? It doesn’t seem like it was that long ago but it’s been ten years since the release of Throwing Copper which catapulted the band into being one of the biggest bands in alternative rock. The last few years have not been kind to the York, Pennsylvania band. Since coming through with a big album in 1999 with The Distance To Here, Live has seen their mainstream popularity plummet quite a bit. Their last two albums have been…
