An integral part of the 1990's punk scene, Michale Graves was instrumental in the resurrection of the iconic Misfits, giving them new life and bringing in a new generation of fans, making the Misfits a more recognized, if not a household, name. Having formed other bands after his departure from
Jukebox Memoir is a silent victory. The album may not set off the rock and roll Richter scale, but it does showcase some serious jams.
As the title suggests, the album is a homage to the music of the past and what the band was brought up to believe in. What
With a somewhat sassy sultriness to her voice, Adrian Conner delivers an eclectic mix of songs on her new album, Be Your Own Saviour. Adrian is no stranger to rocking out as she also plays lead in the AC/DC tribute band Hell's Belles, however, on this album she infuses high

Empire of Rats have been on a furious roll lately. A successful line up of shows in support of their album, it all has been dominantly positive in the hardcore punk-o-sphere. The album, released on A389 Records, is as blue collar as anything you would hear come from the East
