It’s time to let the metal rumble in your bones and rock your soul with every track. That’s right, Fear Factory is back and better than ever in their all new album, The Industrialist.  

P.O.D. pushes out another new album, Murdered Love, and combines their old hard rocking with some new melodies that blend the band in a new direction. Don’t worry, though, the P.O.D. that you know and love is still within the album pumping louder than ever.  

For today’s review I bring you yet another piece of material hailing from Dark Horse Comics, however this time around instead of a original piece I bring you somewhat of a bridge between a popular series and it’s two segments.

This years Honda Civic Tour surpassed previous years with Mutemath, Incubus, and Linkin Park. The Jones Beach Amphitheater was packed full of fans huddled under ponchos, and even a few covered in garbage bags. The awful weather caused many to miss openers Mutemath; based on what those lucky enough to make it there on time had to say, they put on an awesome show.  

Conan the Barbarian strikes again in a collection of five comics, “Trophy”, “The Daughters of Midora”, “Kiss of the Undead”, “Island of No Return” and “Children of the Sun”, all of which include his typical head smashing, limb slicing and brute force.

Dark Horse comics have always been known for their gritty and dark world, vibrant characters and intricate plots. “Victories” by Michael Avon Oeming does well not to break tradition. From the first panel, you immediately become immersed within a dystopian society. A city ruined by corruption and greed where the only salvation lies within the hands of various vigilantes.

Rock the Resort kicked off on Friday with three great performances, raising the bar very high for those to follow. Day two featured a longer lineup: Adelitas Way, Finger Eleven, Buckcherry, and Hinder. Adelitas Way started the evening off early, opening with The Collapse from their album Home School Valedictorian. Although they were up first, I would not even consider calling them an opening act. They played for over an hour, gaining new fans with every song. Guitarists Keith Wallen and Rob Zakaryan ran down the stage running through the pit with huge grins on their face, clearly loving every minute of it. They hyped everyone up, partially thanks to a promise by singer Rick DeJesus to jump into the craziest part of... 

Clay’s Park brought the rock to Ohio this past weekend with its’ second annual Rock the Resort festival. Campers spent their days enjoying the sun in the resort’s water park followed by a night of music. Cavo kicked off the festival on Friday, currently on tour in support of their new album, Thick as Thieves. The park filled up throughout their set, which consisted of a combination of their own material as well as covers. They pulled off a unique, rocked up version of Duran Duran’s Come Undone well, bringing back nostalgic memories of the 80’s.  Their set closed with Champagne off of their debut album, during which hundreds of fans shouted along with the chorus, “could’ve... 

Connecticut started out the holiday with a bang on July 3, playing to a sold out crowd at the Oakdale Theater. People came out early to catch openers Adelitas Way, who came on stage early and played a too short set of 5 songs. They opened up with The Collapse off of their most recent release, Home School Valedictorian. The rest of their set featured songs from the new album. Singer Rick DeJesus performed as he would a headlining show. He gave to the audience what he got–a lot of energy. Following their set the band headed to the merch booth to take pictures and sign autographs for a seemingly endless line of fans, both old and new. Hundreds flocked inside when Papa Roach came out early, allowing them a longer... 

Crossfade are currently on a Jager sponsored tour alongside newcomers Weaving The Fate and Candlelight Red. The guys took a minute before the show to discuss music, touring, and their love for one another. [youtube width=”600″ height=”424″][/youtube] Opener Candlelight Red started the night off with tracks from their debut album ‘The Wreckage”, including their current radio hit Closer. Next up came Weaving The Fate, a funk/rock/metal/rap group from South Carolina. Their unique blend of styles was refreshing and unexpected.

The first band signed to Disurbed’s Intoxication Records, Art of Dying, have been on the road since the release of their debut album “Vices and Virtues”. They stopped by the Starland Ballroom in Jersey last night for 95.9 WRAT’s Low Dough Summer Kick off Show. Metal Machine caught up with guitarist Greg Bradley before the show for a quick interview: [youtube][/youtube] Local openers Scarlet Carson started the night off on a good note; a huge local following showed up to support them as they played a short set of hard rock, similar to Seether and Breaking Benjamin. After the crowd was warmed up, Art of Dying were ready to take the Starland stage for their...
