Since they were formed in California circa 2010, this band has been everywhere- Warped Tour, MTV, Fuse and much more. They still ring true to the roots into which they came, keeping the sweet almost 80's sound mixed with the blues of the Night that they call themselves. They are all about the fight to get to the top, and continue to show the solid nature of their raw yet defined sound. Check them out at nightriots.com and enjoy the music!
Essential End's "Deadwood" came out and conquered. Starting off with the self-titled track, you can instantly feel your surroundings change as the music collides in a beautiful, yet metal sound. Typically, I am not one for vocals that aren't clean, but this singer added an edge to an already powerful song.
The theme through the album seems to be inspired by both new rock and old, with strong riffs along with smooth sounds and the heaviness of the old school 80's hair metal. Tad Davis' voice compliments the melodies of each individual track, and Brady Hearn's skills on the drum are not to be matched.
Essential End was formed in 2014, with Father and Son pair Scott and Brady Heard along with their best friends Caleb Staner, Tad Davis, Connor Green with high hopes and big dreams. Funny enough, the name of thier band signifies brooding and halting trouble in the distance, but this band has been going places! Performing with some of the best national acts, Butcher Babies, Buckcherry and more, they went from hometown dreams to national tours with their fresh metal sound. Let yourself escape to some of their new CD, Deadwood and look for them in a hometown near you. You don't want to...
Chances that you have heard of this legendary band, with founder Mike Keller as guitarist, are very high. They have been everywhere, touring with the greats and producing with Ben Moody of Evanescence, and many other notable names. Previously starting as Park Lane, they transitioned and refined over time, looking to make themselves a name in a sea of heavy rock when changing to female vocalist Alexa Kabazie, and releasing their first female lead vocals album, "Worth the Pain." They have always produced amazing music over the years, but now adding a bit of flare with the steady yet brilliant sound that is Letter From the...
After living the corporate life, Rafferty began his career as a musician with a lot to lose, and a voice made for the spotlight. After a few dead leads, and one last shot of his musician career, he made a decision to record his now hit, "Apple Pie," with the lost money he had to his name. His song grew to success, and has touched over 500,000 users on both Spotify and ITunes, and within his first release of his EP, he was able to secure a commercial track for the well known Apple Company's new product, the IPhone 6.(featured below. He shows the world that you don't have to be corporate to make it!
Tim Sult of Clutch has been kind enough to join us on our show, and discussed some of the things that came with his career with Clutch, not one of them being drama. When looking back on their talented career, with big hit's like "Regulator" making it to the theme music for AMC's The Walking Dead, and "Electric Worry" topping the charts, they avoid the headlines by doing what they do best: making amazing music! If you look at the news, you won't see a dark spot from them, they are all genuine, authentic, and have never let the ever-changing world of rock change their solid sound.
Brad Roberts is known for his deep voice and iconic words in the song, "Mmm mmm mmm," but do people really know the man behind the music? Why Wouldn't We Radio is only a few days from speaking to a musical legend from the 90's and today with his new hit, "I'll Be Peaceful Then" he's got plenty to discuss. Take a listen to his brilliant words, and see a man that has been to the highs and the lows of celebrity, and still coming out with a brilliance like no other.
You can't stop this amazing band at anything, with their non-stop riveting performances, and with their heavy metal appeal they are anything but boring! The not so newcomers on the block are making big waves, performing at major events such as Chicago Open Air, and Rock Fest with some of the biggest names of music. A little off topic, but am I not the only one that can't decide who the best looking band member is?
