The new full length album, Hooves of the Ibex, from Canadian rockers, Wormhole, is a Norse-themed abstraction of alternative, post-hardcore jams made for those who love to rock out!
This album is intense and packed to the brim with dirty, sludgy guitar riffs, angst-filled vocals, and charged up bass and drums.

If you’re looking for some crunchy, driving, good-time hard rock, then New England area band, BlindSide Thunder‘s album, The Storm, is going to be right up your alley!
The Storm is BlindSide Thunder’s (BST) first full-length album, and was released originally in May of 2013. This album is packed full of high-energy jams ranging in style from a more southern crunch with short but hooky leads to more speedy, punk-influenced jams to just straight hard rock! The Storm is a solid pick for the crew looking for a somewhat diverse, but still mainstream, hard rock album for their next party. Check out my favorite tracks “Blue Agave”, “She Wants Sex”, and “Take Me Down”! (more…)

This month I am lucky enough to get to promo an alternative/hard rock band I know extremely well, because it’s a band that I actually front called, Killed By Art! Due solely to the nomination and support of Killed By Art fans, KBA caught 3rd place in Music Connection’s September Featured Band contest and earned some free promo this month, so I get to actually tell you a little bit about one of my favorite projects ever, Killed By Art!
Just 4 years ago, I was passing through life’s daily grind and doing nothing musically at that time, except singing along with the car stereo or in the shower, when I get this amazing offer to try and sing and front a new hard rock project, and I found I just couldn’t refuse! I had found a fantastic new outlet of expression for myself, and after some lineup adjustments and song-writing developed nicely in the first year of the project, we finally established a crazy good 5-member lineup (Kimberly Weiss-vocals; Bill Kirkbride-Guitar; Nathan Goff-Guitar & backing vocals; Todd Panstingel-Bass & backing vocals; Brian Wise- Drums) and a name, Killed By Art.
