CONCERT REVIEW: Electric Callboy – Bury Tomorrow – If Not For Me at MGM Music Hall


MGM Music Hall, another venue that I have (shockingly) yet to shoot in, until tonight, and boy howdy, is it a show for books! We covered the Tekkno Tour last year here at Ghost Cult and it was genuinely one of the funnest shows I’ve ever been to or had the privilege of covering, and this time around we have a new crop of bands along for the ride. This time around the US, Electric Callboy brought along British metalcore legends Bury Tomorrow and Pennsylvanian metalcore outfit If Not For Me out on the road this time to bring the party.

So gang, it’s a Sunday night in Boston and we have German party metal and international metalcore on the menu… LET’S EAT!Continue reading

EP REVIEW: Save Us – Lucid


Metalcore is quite the saturated genre in 2023, with plenty of micro-genres of its own sprouting across.

ALBUM REVIEW: DAYSHELL- Pegasus


 

The late 2000s and early 2010s had a surge of metalcore and melodic metal genres. As the genre reached its peak, there was no shortage of upper-echelon talented vocalists who were the hallmark of the era. Former Of Mice & Men guitarist Shayley Bourget‘s range, control, and warbling vocal vibrato caused his talents to stand out amongst the never-ending horizon of unclean/clean dual-vocalist bands.

All That Remains – Madness


I’m pretty good at separating the art from the artist. James Woods’ political leanings aren’t my cup of tea, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to change the station whenever Videodrome or Casino comes on. I can ignore his tweets and enjoy the work. That’s the approach I took with All That Remains’ latest, Madness (Razor & Tie).Continue reading
