Death Throes

Album Review

2020/03/13

MOTIVES new 2020 album, Death Throes, which drops Friday, March 13th is a super emotional and engaging piece from start to finish. The hard rock/post-hardcore band from Cleveland, Ohio brings the heaviness to your ears with not only relatable lyrics but also the flowing riffs, powerful breakdowns, and an emotional ride of varying emotions from start to finish.

This 11 track post-harcore masterpiece has a song for every feeling ranging from life struggles such as self image in "If The Accident Will" to the constant mental battles of ones self which are emphasized in Track 5 "Burn Through Me". My first time listening through the album was a rollercoaster in my own thoughts of past experiences in my life that seemed to have a matching track that describes exactly how I felt at that given time... ...

We Came As Romans

We Came As Romans

2020-03-05

Ten years ago, six friends decided to get together and make music. Ten years ago these six friends made their first record album called "To Plant a Seed". Fast forward to today and the fans are still playing that same album. The only difference is now, we sadly lost Kyle but his memory will never be forgotten.

This is only the second time We Came As Romans has toured since Kyle Pavone passed away. This tour is different than the last because they are celebrating and playing "To Plant a Seed" for the last time. Before the show started the crowd was chanting "For Kyle!". It was heartwarming and it's nice to see the fans keeping his memory alive. Also before the band took the stage, a video began to play of all of the band members talking about this album and how it all began. At the very end, I could of swore everyone was on the verge of tears, because at the end of the video....

The Devil Wears Prada

The Devil Wears Prada is currently on tour with We Came As Romans as direct support and are crushing it on stage. Everyone who has ever seen or heard of The Devil Wears Prada knows that these guys are amazing performers. Mike Hranica never stops moving. He really gets into his singing and knows how to work every inch of the stage.

As direct support they are played a ten song set which had them playing two new songs for the first time: "The Thread" and "Numb". They opened with "Lines on your hands" and ended with "Danger: Wildman".

The lighting for The Devil Wears Prada is insane this tour! There is a lot of....

Gideon is one of the opening bands on We Came As Romans, To Plant a Seed Tenth Anniversary Tour. They are also one of the heaviest bands on this awesome lineup! With that being said, no one knew what to expect at all but Gideon came out and rocked the house!

So many people were moshing and crowd surfing within the first song of their set! It was insane!

Chicago was the first stop on this tour for them so it was really exciting to be among the first people to see their set live!

Gideon only played a seven song set. They opened with "Sleep" and closed it out with....

The Glorious Sons and Des Rocs rocked out at the Royal Oak Music Theatre last Saturday in front of a near sold out venue. With this being my first time shooting an indie genre band I wasn't sure quite what to expect. After arriving an hour beforehand and still seeing the venue already half full I knew it was going to be a great night of live music.

Up first was Des Rocs, from New York City. New York. With a 3 piece band they still brought the energy to the venue and definitely pumped up the crowd as if they were headlining the tour! With their catchy songs, mysterious backlit stage lighting, and super energetic stage performance, Des Rocs rocked out Royal Oak Music Theatre and made it a memorable night for all!

With only two bands performing that night, it meant that Kingston, Ontario natives, The Glorious Sons....

Saint Motel brought The Motion Picture Show tour to Chicago and thrilled the crowd.

These guys put on a heck of a show and I hope to catch them again and again as they continue to make music and entertain everyone who comes out to support them.

There are a lot of musical duos in the music scene. Aly and Aj, Matt and Kim, Twenty One Pilots are just a few. A newer one to this collection is a group called KOLARS. What makes them unique is the fact that Lauren Brown not only plays the drums but also tap dances on one! While Rob Kolar plays guitar and is a fantastic singer.

Besides being bad ass' at tap dancing and singing, they both also wear beautiful sequined outfits. So matter where you are sitting or standing in a venue, they can both be seen and you won't want to take your eyes off of them!

During "Turn it up", Rob jumped down from the stage and started shredding on his guitar in the photo pit and on top of the barricade! A lot of the fans were getting ready to hold him....

Anna of the North

Having never heard anything from Anna of the North before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. So hearting he reaction from the crowd when Anna took the stage was great. The audience was filled with true fans that know every song and sang along to every word.

The stage presence of this artist was absolutely amazing! She came directly to the front of the stage to get as close to her fans as possible. She continually runs, jumps and dances from one side of the stage to the next so everyone in attendance can feel like they are part of the show. As she pauses and makes eye contact with those up front you see a glow of excitement in the face of everyone she not only looks at but reaches out too.

When you attend her concert, you are getting a full interactive experience.....
