In a world where Devon loves both rock ‘n’ roll AND documentaries way more than the next guy, Dave Grohl’s Sound City soundtrack has completed me. A documentary on the history of LA’s Sound City Studios, the studio adorned in brown shag carpet/platinum record-ed walls housed music powerhouses like Nirvana, Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Rick Springfield, Tom Petty, Guns ‘n’ Roses, and Slipknot, just to name a few. The artists reunited to create thesoundtrack for the doc, and thankfully, rock showed signs of vital.
Today’s generation of music is so expansive and shifty that it’s difficult for an artist to stay in the spotlight for a long time and still provide adequate work. This rule has never applied to Thom Yorke. Despite the scarce amount of interviews he does these days and long breaks between his releases, the Radiohead member has managed to release a groundbreaking LP under the name of his new project, Atoms for Peace.

Already having released a new music video for the track “Shadow Moses” last month, British Metal band Bring Me The Horizon set loose new single “Antivist” on February 19th to anxious headbangers everywhere. An obvious condemnation of this generation’s boisterous words yet contradictory unwillingness to act, “Antivist” is an angry bull on the loose; a constant blast of raw energy. The song is unforgiving and relentless, from its scathing lyrics to its addicting rhythms. It is a powerful combination of instrumentals that are straightforward but not spare, and passionate vocals that frontman Oli Sykes never fails to use to rip out our hearts. Blunt to the point of irony, there is something in the rage that is deeply honest. Championing the call “Middle fingers UP!”, BMTH expresses their frustration with the mindset of the majority and proves once again that music is the only thing that seems to make sense in this world of chaos.
The band is set to release their new album Sempiternal in North America on April 30, 2013.

Motionless In White has long been making themselves infamous through the creepy, the cinematic, and the hard to swallow. They’ve made a name for themselves as being the band that’s pissed off and likes to piss other people off, with their blunt and honest lyrics and unrelenting desire to represent what mainstream society views as the obscene. With their latest album Infamous hitting stores this past November, the band takes their dedication to a new kind of metal to another level. Everything has been amped up for this record—more intricate guitar solos, more electronic and industrial beats, and a heavier sound. As always, Motionless In White balances unforgiving screams with melodious choruses. “Infamous” delivers both songs to bang our heads to and songs to sing along to.

Like a two and a half hour explosion, a Matt & Kim concert is not a safe thing. Somehow, mosh pits to “Daylight” brewed and expect not only an elbow to the face and to be forced by the sheer momentum of the crowd into jumping, but to be misted with sweat propelled from a girl’s wind-milling hair. Kim doesn’t curse to be funny or to emphasize her point-she’s just fucking filthy. She’d steal Matt’s beer and stick it down her pants so her crotch bulged and then air hump his keyboard. She crawled into the center of the audience like a rock climber, supported by fans’ hands, and standing above us, booty-shook her heart out. Apparently, this is a tradition.
