After Wednesday night’s epic show at The Resch Center, I have a new definition of the word brutal. Slipknot rolled into town and brought the Knotfest Roadshow with them. Alongside Slipknot was Wage War and In This Moment.Continue reading
Having nailed Asking Alexandria 3.0, with last year’s vibrant See What’s On The Inside (Better Noise), the UK metalcore-turned-rock beasts are keen to capitalise on the critical and commercial success of their seventh album with a four-track EP, featuring two exclusive tracks.
Asking Alexandria has surprise-dropped a new EP, Never Gonna Learn, continuing the vibe they started on their acclaimed 2021 full-length album See What’s On The Inside (Better Noise Music). The band also shared a new single featured on the EP, with an appearance from In This Moment frontwoman Maria Brink. “New Devil!” Check out the track and purchase and stream the EP at the link below!

The Loudwire Awards in Los Angeles prove that hard rock and heavy metal are still kicking live.Continue reading
The 2017 Rock Allegiance festival took place last night at BB&T Pavilion and Wiggins Waterfront Park in Camden, New Jersey, and did not disappoint. With a lineup that included the likes of Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Mastodon, In This Moment, and Gojira, fans were treated to an all day experience with some of the biggest names in the business. Of course with so many bands on the bill, guest appearances were sure to happen, and Five Finger Death Punch had something special planned for their closing number. Continue reading
Six albums and ten years deep sees In This Moment achieve a notable career milestone with Ritual (Roadrunner/Atlantic), celebrated with a prominent change in focus. Toned down is the throwaway innuendo and sexually tinged frippery of previous albums, gone is the overt silliness, and ramped up is the stomping “industrial-tinged” Hard Rock side of the band that has always, in reality, been their calling card.Continue reading
One of the top tours Ghost Cult covered this year was the Return Of The Dreads tour from Rob Zombie, Korn, and In This Moment. All three bands put on a big show and none bigger than Zombie who has projected his larger than life, splatter film inspired, b-movie femme fatal tunnel vision into our brains for over 25 years now. Often a big tour like this is fraught with egos and drama to match the spectacle, but by all accounts all these bands have been classy and great to each other, and to the fans every night.

As the summer heat gets further away and we press on toward winter, all of the fall tours seem to be hitting my town at once. Earlier in the year it seems like there were hardly any tours worth going to, let alone any with a deep enough bill to make one be need to be there. Five Finger Death Punch on the strength of their new album Got Your Six (Prospect Park) put together such a bill that people came out early, and rocked out in droves. From Ashes To New energized the early crowd with their hybrid mix of modem metal and old school rap metal sounds. High energy stage shows with two front men and uplifting jams are the blood of this band, and we are going to keep an eye out for them for years to come. Following that up is In This Moment’s theatrical stage show that just floors people. Hard to believe the leaps this act has taken since starting out as a little metalcore band from Las Vegas. Front woman Maria Brink channels her inner Madonna via costume changes, props, and sheer bravado. Resurgent hit-makers Papa Roach are in the direct support slot on this tour. Their sets are always a rabid sing-a-long with fans, screaming out the words to every song and hopping around in step to the beat. At last it was time for FFDP, themselves now the modern rock and metal torchbearers in America, taking up the reigns from the mostly absent Metallica the last half decade. With larger than life staging, the larger than life band prowls all over the stage jumping off risers, all while their fans try to soak it up and hold on to what the band doles out. Everything about this band screams Las Vegas spectacle or Texas Roadhouse. Thanks to Evil Robb Photography who caught all the action for Ghost Cult with the cam in hand!
