GNARBEQUE PREVIEW: WILLY CLARK

Willy Clark is a name that I have seen more and more over the past year, and I absolutely love it. In my eyes that is a sign he is doing something right. I had the opportunity to chat with him a few weeks ago at a show, and he is one that truly loves what he does. Just from talking to him I could hear the passion in his ...

Audiofeed 2019 preview: acidfuneral

Audiofeed is neat because it books a nice mix of up-and-coming acts and old standbys. The old standbys are often perennial acts: Comrades, Flatfoot 56, Leper. The bands that make Audiofeed what it is. Audiofeed has found itself an unlikely new annual act in acidfuneral. This act is local to Champaign/Urbana, and has used ...

Audiofeed 2019 preview: Words

Behind the unassuming moniker is Jonny Gore—the singer of Least of These. LoT has a storied history with Tuned Up.

They even were the ...

Audiofeed 2019 preview: Death Therapy

Death Therapy is quite possibly the most under-appreciated, actively touring act on the Tooth and Nail/Solid State Records family at the moment. The excellent Voices is a journey mishmashing industrial electronica, sludge metal, and traditional metal in an intensely satisfying manner. One only needs to listen to "Feels ...

GNARBEQUE PREVIEW: ARISE THE TITAN

Arise the Titan is a band that might be unfamiliar to a lot of our readers. Well, let me tell you: if metal is your poison, then this is a band you should know. And if you like to step out of your comfort zone, this is a band to know. They have riffs for days, and I for one love it. Over the years they have shared the ...

Audiofeed 2019 preview: The Mailboxes

One of the best selections of indie music in the country can be found year in and year out at Audiofeed. These artists may not have pull yet, but you can be assured that the majority of them are making moves and will probably be at that point within a coupe of years. The Mailboxes are one of them. They are an indie duo ...
