My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult

My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult (often shortened to Thrill Kill Kult or TKK) is an American electronic industrial rock band originally based out of Chicago, Illinois.

Counterfeit i

Counterfeit i

In a world where honest music is a rare commodity, Counterfeit i stands apart and plays with real emotion and intensity. This Chicago-based experimental group, founded by Derek Allen in 2008, does not care about mass appeal and refuses to sacrifice artistic integrity for the fleeting fame that the music industry so readily offers. From their first release, Circuitry (2009) to their last EP, Search Party (2010), Counterfeit i has progressed and grown on their own ter... [Read More about Counterfeit i]

Bruce Bouillet

Bruce Bouillet

I tend to look at him as ‘the one who got away’. Not that he has been out of the music scene, but he is the only one who kept a low profile after his groundbreaking work with Racer X. After the break up Bouillet started The Scream, but refocused upon their split. Bruce started mixing, engineering and producing albums leading him to fame in the scene, and eventually even a Grammy (Motörhead). His successful career as one of metal’s top engineers never wiped out his love for the instrument and ... [Read More about Bruce Bouillet]

In contradiction to most solo efforts from shredders, Gus opts to focus on quality metal songs rather than guitar ex... [Read More about Gus G.]

Incura

Incura

Everything about Incura appears to be as unique as their name, and the deeper you dig, the more you realize how true this sentiment really is. Their new self-titled EP is the debut release for Coalition Music /Warner Music Canada and their first taste of new music since an independently released EP in 2009.

Incura’s music is virtually unclassifiable. Genre-hopping across many different styles of hard rock and clearly inspired by the love of theatre, Incura t... [Read More about Incura]

Jeff Morris - Original Songs On a Borrowed Guitar

Independent – March 4, 2010

Last summer someone suggested to me to spin an album from a local indie artist named Jeff Morris. I reluctantly accepted having only recently taken a self-imposed break from listening and reviewing unknown artists. I played the album, attentively titled Original Songs On a Borrowed Guitar, a couple of tracks stood out ("Shara's Song" and "Till the Fire Dies"); his voice, vocal delive...
