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...

Twisted's Best Of 2017, Part 2: New Finds

twistedtop10-2017-New-Find_20180103-231531_1
We had my favorite albums of 2017 , but there are also a lot of artists who I fell in love with over the last year, that didin't make THAT list. They still deserve some shout outs! Wake The Sun I caught these guys in NYC early in the year as they opened up for friends in Face The King . I was blown away and immediately talked to guitarist, Tommy, to find more information about them – Which they were actually from Long Island. Fast forward to the summer and we featured these guys on a show case and will most certainly be doing the same in 2018! Streepthroat This is another band I happened to ca...

Twisted's Best Of 2017 Part 1: EP's/Albums

twistedtop10-2017-EP_20180103-232056_1
So, Who thought 2016 sucked? 2017 had SO much potential, Just when we didn’t think things could get much worse.  In retrospect, 2017 most definitely had it’s ups and downs. On The political spectrum, all kinds of crazy stuff happened. Movie-wise, We finally got a version of spider-man that was AWESOME, Wonder Woman finally graced the silver screen (And killed it!), while the Justice League did Not, AND we had another adventure in a Galaxy far, far away as Star Wars: The Last Jedi certainly changed the landscape of the entire franchise. That all being said, there was also a LOT of really g...

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...

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 ...
