GNARBEQUE PREVIEW: TO KILL A MONSTER

If you follow Tuned Up or at least me on social media then you should have known that this band would be included. Ryan and I talk about "Tuned Up" bands from time to time, and if there was anyone, it’s the guys that makeup To Kill a Monster. This band has a long history with us here at 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.

Audiofeed 2019 preview: The Mailboxes

They are an indie duo ...

Audiofeed 2019 preview: Motherfolk

I'm hard pressed to think of a catchy opener for this write-up, so I figured honesty was the best policy, here. Luckily, this band has a lot more to offer than a music blogger hitting a microcosm of writer's block! Motherfolk (who totally named their band for the reason you're probably thinking, I'd hedge) are Cincinnati ...

Audiofeed 2019 preview: Desiring Dead Flesh

Desiring Dead Flesh are no stranger to this site. But, in case you need a refresher, DDF are a punk trio that thrives on chaos, authenticity, and fun. Their shows are known for being down to earth yet loud, easygoing yet unpredictable. Songs are short and fast. And there's lots of yelling. Ironically, the yeller in the ...

Audiofeed 2019 preview: Gold Frankincense & Myrrh

I'm not sure how to intro this preview, so I'll just write the first thing that comes to mind. I think it is so so cool that a band has the opportunity to play both an event like Audiofeed and Insane Clown Posse's Gathering of the Juggalos. Now, that's what I call a crossover act! The crossover appeal of Gold Frankincense ...
