REVIEW: Sweeny Todd Live at The Lunt Fontanne Theatre

Prepare to be mesmerized and transported into the dark, macabre world of Victorian London with Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street at The Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in New York. This Broadway rendition of the classic musical is tailor-made for the heavy music fans. Most of us know the 2007 movie starring Johnny Depp and directed by Tim Burton. Which is fine But it is barely the tip of that iceberg of the story. I suspect even fewer know or remember the Angela Lansbury (Murder She Wrote) and Len Cariou (Fraiser) original from 1979. That being said, this a timeless show you should see. From the opening number of “The Ballad of Sweeney Todd” to the finale, this the most diverse Broadway cast I’ve ever seen. Continue reading

CONCERT REVIEW: Unearth – Revocation – Entheos – High Command at Saint Vitus Bar


Unearth and Revocation kicked off their co-headlining tour at Saint Vitus on Friday. The fate of the night appeared uncertain as earlier that day severe flooding shut down subway lines and landed parts of the city knee-deep in water. Although the show was technically sold out, Vitus was, dare I say, comfortable. It felt like a more exclusive and intimate experience than the usual ATM vestibule loitering.

SPONSORED POST: Phenyx Pro PTU-2U True Diversity Microphones Unboxing, Review and Press Tent Test with Rock and Metal Artists


This video is sponsored by Phenyx Pro! They sent us the Phenyx Pro PTU-2U True Diversity Wireless Microphone System to test out! So just hours after we unboxed it, we took the system and tested it in the most difficult of circumstances, the press tent of a major rock and metal festival! We used it to interview real rockstars! A music festival is always crazy loud and challenging to get our interviews done and sounding great, but the Phenyx Pro wireless microphones totally outperformed our current lav mic system! We even shared an A-B test in the video to prove the awesome power of these microphones.

ALBUM REVIEW: Lorna Shore – Pain Remains

It takes quite a lot in the subgenre of deathcore to really excite me nowadays. Lorna Shore is such an example that never excited me, but I also never gave them a real listen before. Plagued by lineup changes, it is difficult to decide where to begin in their discography. Fortunately, a new full-length is out now entitled Pain Remains (Century Media) and this may be a great spot for any new listener to start their journey. This record provides nine tracks (the last three telling one story on their own) at just over the hour mark.
