Dorrian’s main project now, WTD holds quite a respectable bunch of lads in its band membership, that is for sure. Returning with Lee on [...] SHC S/T EP Review & Stream Pat 'Riot' Whitaker September 21, 2017 SHC S/T EP Review & Stream https://www.riffrelevant.com/2017/09/21/shc-st-ep-review-stream/ (By Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker, Lead Journalist/Writer, RiffRelevant.com) I am clueless as to what the SHC of Portugal’s SHC stands for and cannot find any indication of what it may be anywhere. But you know what, it is really irrelevant in this case and maybe they’ll let us get by with it being whatever we want [...] BLOODGOD ‘Carthasis’ EP Review & Stream Pat 'Riot' Whitaker September 20, 2017 BLOODGOD ‘Carthasis’ EP Review & Stream https://www.riffrelevant.com/2017/09/20/bloodgod-carthasis-ep-review/ (By Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker, Lead Journalist/Writer, RiffRelevant.com) From deep within The Netherlands comes the vicious Dutch collective that is Bloodgod and their latest EP, “Catharsis“.

Pompous or [...] WAR CLOUD – ‘War Cloud’ S/T Album Review & Full Stream Dave 'Sunshine' LaMay September 13, 2017 WAR CLOUD – ‘War Cloud’ S/T Album Review & Full Stream https://www.riffrelevant.com/2017/09/13/war-cloud-album-review-full-stream/ (By David ‘Sunshine’ LaMay, Staff Writer, RiffRelevant.com) To myself and perhaps only myself, the current stoner rock genre and its multiple sub-classifications are facing hard times. Oh, the scene is really thriving outwardly in numerical terms of bands and supporters, no doubt. The more skeptical eye though, seems to reveal more. Much like Elvis, [...] BETWEEN THE RAIN ‘The Knockoff’ EP Review; Track Stream + Tour Dates Pat 'Riot' Whitaker September 13, 2017 BETWEEN THE RAIN ‘The Knockoff’ EP Review; Track Stream + Tour Dates https://www.riffrelevant.com/2017/09/13/between-the-rain-the-knockoff-review-tour/ (By Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker, Lead Journalist/Writer, RiffRelevant.com) New York’s Between The Rain are a fast-rising trio, one coming up from gritty streets determined to bring their punk-tinged Grunge / Alt.

Steeped in local mythos, Cody Stieg (lead guitar / vocals), Brian Hinckley (guitar), Bryan Kunde (bass), and James Slater (drums), have crafted an epic album which captures the spirit of a land – Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Don’t worry if you’re not into [...] Load More Copyright secured by Digiprove © 2017All Rights ReservedOriginal content here is published under these license terms: X License Type:Read OnlyLicense Summary:You may read the original content in the context in which it is published (at this web address).
