Among Americans’ periodic periods of panic over the corrosiveness of pop culture, the 1980s campaign to vilify heavy metal music stands out for the decibel level of both the music and the protests.

With dramatic testimony in courtrooms and at Congressional hearings, concerned parents and even government officials warned that groups like Iron Maiden and Metallica were enticing our teenagers into moral and spiritual darkness—up to and including devil worship.

So now that three decades have passed since this alleged attempt by Satan to infiltrate young brains via eardrum-shattering sounds, how are those headbangers doing? Did their punishingly loud and intense music send them spiraling into lives of despair?

Sometimes, life can be downright mean.

Full of Hell founding member and guitarist Spencer Hazard is one musician who uses that darkness to create something else: music. In a recent interview, Hazard summed up the inspiration for the music, sound and lyrics of the young East Coast band.

“Mostly human experience,” Hazard said. “Whether it be other people’s or one’s own pain experienced in life.”

The Keys of Life and Death, the debut album of Dayton metal band Horlet, is crunchy and tight from beginning to end. This cd has been in my player for a month now and shows no signs of getting stale! The heavy riffs SLAM, weaving lots of tandem melody lines and intricate percussion with great composition and production quality.

Abertooth Lincoln’s bassist Andrew Humphrey is running a little late.  Humphrey currently lives in Oxford, which is about an hour from the band’s headquarters in Dayton.  The rest of the band, Jacob Gandert on vocals, guitarist James Lampe, Josh Gandert on sax/keyboards, and drummer Mike Werthmann are already where we all agreed to meet up, which is where the band lives and practices.  It is one of the most beautiful nights that has graced the Dayton area in the past few months.  The weather has been miserable around the Dayton area, with the amount of snow that equals to what most mountain regions receive.

I met up with the band outside of the meeting place, which was located a little outside of town.    As soon as Humphrey arrived, he quickly apologized for being a little late.  Driving an hour to come and meet up with everyone and also practice shouldn’t call for being sorry.  The band and myself entered the home, and quickly opened up the windows.  This was an evening that shouldn’t be wasted with the cool air swirling around outside.

Abertooth Lincoln It was just four years ago when Abertooth Lincoln formed.   At that time Werthmann, and Lampe were just coming out of  their previous band, He Laughs He Learns He Loves.  Along with Caleab Wyant (keyboard, vocals), Eric Rieper (sounds,  vocals) and Matt Conner (bass), He Laughs He Learns He Loves just dropped their long awaited full length album which  was titled Say Yes To Everything.  The album, which featured a heavy concoction of electronica, punk and metal in each  of the songs, took over three years to be produced and then be released.  The making of the album took its toll on  everyone involved.  Becoming burnt out with playing the songs they recorded to the point where they hated them,  disagreements, along with the direction of the band gave everyone the conclusion that it was time to move on.  Shortly  after the album release party concluded, He Laughs He Learns He Loves called it quits.  “We spent way too long on one  project”, says Lampe.  “When it was finally done (the album) that now we can listen to and think it sounds cool, but by  the time it came out we all couldn’t stand it.” (more…)
