Fallen Asunder

By Lisa Waugh Childhood friends and bandmates Ryan Batturs and Josh Weaver hammer out the word “sympatico” on their self-titled record, Fallen Asunder.

Chameleon Technology: Blank Canvas

By Shep Landers Behold, Max Histrionic’s Chameleon Technology and the latest project Blank Canvas, a fun as hell breakneck immersive experience.

In Silence is an ethereal and winding, down tempo record full of contemplation. Ozmucur’s music can […]

The Inner Journey of The Unravelling’s ‘Revolt’

The Unravelling don’t do anything half way. From writing, performing or crafting their new single “Revolt,” all of their work is done a balls out fashion.
