Featuring 10 new tracks teeming with the band’s signature concoction of heavy rock, which boasts everything from gothic and psychedelic rock to doom and stoner metal, this recording is already looking like it may come in as the band’s best to date.

Jeannie Saiz, lead vocalist and guitarist for the stoner sludge metal band Shroudeater, spoke with me about the group’s newest release, ThunderNoise. As you might expect, ThunderNoise is a very heavy affair. It’s raw, overdriven and in-your-face, but also has a groove to it that just seeps into your skin commanding attention.

Jeremy Haffner, lead vocalist and bassist for the alternative/progressive rock band Oedipus, spoke with me about the group’s latest project Tres Las. Propelled by the huge success of songs such as “Tres Las” and “Burn It Down”, the band has been making quite a bit of noise in the music scene. With influences from such great bands as The Muse and 311, Oedipus has created a sound that is fun and enjoyable to listen to. Here is what Haffner has to say.
