[MONTHLY] be.human.again- best.sounds 12.2014

  Back in the day when I first started dotting out these dark fuckbuddy moments with music on the page, it felt like my hand and the keyboard were fusing into a bit of a saviour complex sword that they’d hold against my neck. Sit down. Be a good little human. Which was ironic, because […]

This double-sided release kicks off with a dark, eerie build, dominated by deep swells of bass and the repetitive pulse of […]

[CONCERT REVIEW/PHOTO RECAP] See You In The Pit: Attila and The Monster Energy Outbreak Tour

  This past wednesday, I experienced the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour, featuring Sworn In, Like Moths To Flames, Crown The Empire, and Attila. Some of these bands I had never heard of, one of these bands I had shot numerous times, and one of these bands I had a very love/hate relationship with.   Sworn […]
