#songoftheweek / VIDEO: Amelia Lily – “California”
It's no secret that I love California-themed songs and that's a large part of why I'm digging this new tune by Amelia Lily. But I also like it because it's an infectious pop song with an invigorating rock edge, Lily (and whoever works with her) opting...
CAPSULE REVIEWS: ENTOMBED A.D., THE DAGGER, LES ENFOIRES, MY BRIGHTEST DIAMOND
ENTOMBED A.D.: BACK TO THE FRONT Thrash music has been pretty lame as of late, if you ask me. But perhaps listening to so much black metal and death metal has made thrash feel a bit too safe, too tame and too accessible. Likewise, there are far too many death metal acts out...Read more

#albumoftheday / REVIEW: FOZZY: DO YOU WANNA START A WAR
Fozzy has a backstory almost as weird as Spinal Tap’s.
