icepicks - 2017

ice-2017
2017 is over and it’s time to look back and pull out some highlights and then see what 2018 has to offer and what I am looking forward to. So, my usual list of awards are usually one-offs and kinda strange, but it wouldn’t be me if it were anything else now would it? So, in no particular order of preference, here are my 2017 awards as I come up with them and name them on the fly. I’ll also sneak in a look at 2018 for a local band that is about to make some serious noise nationally. Most interesting e-mail Zoe Friedman from Thrilldriver . Needless to say we get many submissions a day. When we w...

Hinder - The Reign

Hinder-The-Reign-500x500
Formed in 2001 by OKC guitarist Joe Garvey and drummer Cody Hanson, Hinder has certainly seen some changes in themselves and industry itself in their march through the charts and global tours. In November of 2013 they made their biggest change in parting ways with charismatic front man, Austin Winkler. With Jared Weeks of Saving Abel stepping in for a bit and Nolan Neal singing “Hit the Ground” the focus soon turned to Marshall Dutton, former guitar player, writer and backup vocalist for Dallas based Faktion, who was already “in house” so to speak since 2009 helping write and produce Hinder mu...

How a shitty Batman Movie changed my Life.

batman-forever-cinema-one-sheet-movie-poster-1
I'll be honest. When "Batman Forever" came out, I was hyped. I was 12 years old and I couldn’t get enough of it. Today, after watching it again for the first time in years: Jim Carrey 's Riddler is holy annoying and Tommy Lee Jones ' Two-Face was just.. Bad. I wasn't a huge Val Kilmer fan, either (And we won't talk about Chris O'Donnel 's Robin.) There were so many ways that Joel Shumacher just went completely wrong. That being said - Years later I look back and i still stand by it legit has one of the *BEST* Soundtracks. It intrduced me to Nick Cave. It also made me look up The Offspring 's c...

October icepicks - Wayland, Rinse and Repeat

wayland
Been tracking on Wayland for a while now. Quite often you’d find me spinning (do we do that in the digital age still?) tunes such as She Lights it Up and Reason to Love  from their 2010 self-titled debut release for no other reason than they’re great songs from a band that has a familiar sound from the word go but something different you can find if you take a minute to really listen. I’d buy the singles as they come out, add them to our rotation usually because they’re just a good band you can count on for good tune after good tune. 2011 saw “Welcome to my Head” and outside this, kinda q...

Steelheart - Through Worlds of Stardust

steelheart
Many months ago, when I first heard Steelheart was in the process of making a new album I was beyond excited. Through Worlds of Stardust is their first album in 9 years, and recorded with his studio/touring band. They have been a long-time favorite of mine. Miljenko Matijevic’s voice has always amazed and blown me away. The control and power he has along with his incredible range makes this band one that should never be overlooked. As I have alluded to above, the one thing I have always loved about Steelheart is lead singer, Miljenko Matijevic’s incredible voice. In the opening track, “Stream ...

Scandroid - "Monochrome" Review

Scandroid_Monochrome_cover-1000x1000
Scandroid “ Monochrome ” Review Editor's note: I totally realized i had stated the self-titled debut album was 2017. That is incorrect, as it was released in 2016. Fixed! - Sean Let me start off by saying – I’m a Scandroid fan. There’s nothing I didn’t love about his self titled release in 2016, or the multiple remix albums that followed.  I’ll consider myself a die-hard since The Scandroid project, at least, has been in full swing.  Yes, I’ve picked up every single, and all the goodies.  So, sure, you could group me in with  “Fanboys” if you will, before continuing on, as ...

13 Songs #1

IMG_2729
A couple of days ago, I wrote a piece called “13 Short Reviews For A Rather Unlucky Day.” While I was quite pleased with the way it came out, I was kind of inebriated, to say the least. I realized after I posted the article that I genuinely enjoyed writing the piece, as I’m one who is prone to “skipping” songs just for the sake of seeing what’s playing next. That review gave me a reason to sit down and honestly listen to the song and sort out how I truly felt about whatever song was playing within myself, as I’d set a very strict rule on myself that I could not skip the song just because it wa...
