Andrew Bilach, Dirge Within, Music Interviews »

One-on-One with ‘Dirge Within’ Guitarist Shaun Glass

“I’ve always said Shaun Glass is an open book. Our discussions are always fun, interesting, and laid back. Whether or not you like his music, he’s worthy of your respect. Shaun Glass bleeds Dirge Within. Morning, noon, and night, 24/7, he’s about this band. That’s no joke and not something I’m writing for the sake of this article. If everyone approached music and their bands like he approaches Dirge Within, the music business would be a much more honest, better place.”

Interview with God Forbid guitarist Doc Coyle

Equilibrium marks God Forbid’s 6th full length release and their first with their newly solidified home at Victory Records. They’ve achieved high praise from fans and critics alike over their career and still have an insatiable hunger to expand their songwriting horizons, which is constantly evolving with each release. Equilibrium is no exception and is as monstrously heavy as it is dynamic and textured. God Forbid are at the top of their game and will no doubt with Equilibrium solidify their status in the hierarchy of heavy music.

Interview with Richard Patrick of Filter

All Knowing Force are huge supporters of Filter. They’re delivering a new record this summer, and will be playing in New York City Thursday, March 8th, 2012 at the Gramercy Theater. They’ll also be playing at the Showboat in Atlantic City on Saturday, March 10th, 2012. This audio is 30 minutes of solid Filter talk. You won’t be disappointed.

Interview with The Voice of Royal Bliss, Neal Middleton

I’ve been a fan and supporter of Royal Bliss for many, many years. When I think of this ban, the words “criminally ignored” comes to mind. They constantly grind out some of the most consistent, hooky, melodic rock on the planet – completely devoid of pretentiousness and Nickelback-Shinedown-esque jingles. Their eighth studio album, Waiting Out The Storm, was released January 24th and features the awesome balled “Crazy.” Take a couple of minutes and investigate these guys. You won’t be sorry.

The Things They Carried <em>There’s Something I Can’t Tell Anyone</em> CD Album Review

“It’s an unpredictable, confrontational assault on the senses. Guided, yet frenetically chaotic. Screamo was never my thing, and granted, maybe this review should have been written by someone who has an appreciation for the genre, but There’s Something I Can’t Tell Anyone captivated me.” -AB

Andrew Bilach, Dreaming, The, Music Interviews, Stabbing Westward »

Interview with Christopher Hall of The Dreaming (ex-Stabbing Westward)

My first introduction to the music of Christopher Hall was in 1996 when I acquired a copy of Wither Blister Burn & Peel, the second album by his former band, Stabbing Westward. Now, a decade and a half later, I’m talking to him about Puppet, the second album from his current band, The Dreaming. You’ll find this show strays from the interview format and is more of a conversation. I’m sure you’ll all enjoy it. -AB

BT: Disciple – Salt Lamp

Disciple’s sound is built on layers of ferocious guitars, screamingly passionate vocals, a hard-charging rhythm section, and a flair for surprisingly melodic choruses. They’ve been around for nearly two decades, and even though the Gospel always takes center stage, they do a darn good job of kicking your teeth down your throat.

BT: Alter Bridge – Never Born To Follow

I was listening to terrestrial radio a few days ago. 103.9 in Albany, to be exact. Apparently, they think it’s 1993. Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Temple Of The Dog, Tool, Spacehog and Green Day. Not one song from the last decade. Yep, that’s your rock station Albany. Check this out instead. It’s 2011 on AKF. -AB

BT: The Sheila Divine – Hum

“If a band could ever lay claim to being criminally overlooked, it’s The Sheila Divine. Their 1999 album New Parade is a masterpiece. Angry pop rock at its best, a vocal amalgam of straightforward screaming and a light falsetto. Infectious, timeless, and will grow on your with each successive listen.”
