I remember purchasing Let Your Dim Light Shine in the mid-90′s. By then, they weren’t cool anymore. Bush was dominating the airwaves. Korn was popularizing nu-metal. Maybe “Misery” was a little silly. Maybe it was too much too fast. Still, somehow, Dave Pirner, through his goofy lyrics and odd demeanor managed to find a place in my musical heart. Their latest album, Delayed Reaction was released in 2012. Inside, you’ll find some commentary and an interview we did with Dave before Soul Asylum’s fall 2013 co-headlining run with Fountains of Wayne.

Almost 20 years after Rotting Pinata went gold, Sponge frontman Vinnie Dombroski sat down with All Knowing Force to discuss their seventh and latest studio album, Stop the Bleeding. After seeing them twice this past summer: once opening the 2013 Summerland Tour, and once headlining in Boston, I can safely reiterate something I’ve believed all along: this is one of the most criminally underrated rock bands in history. Enjoy the interview.

It’s not everyday a band comes around that piques my interest. Memphis rockers Surrender The Fall don’t reinvent the wheel, but they exude unrivaled passion and honesty on their first LP “Burn In The Spotlight.” I want you all to take a listen to this interview and give them a few minutes of your time.
Cinderella, Music Interviews »
Cinderella isn’t as well known as some of their 80′s contemporaries, but they definitely are some of the most respected. While bands like Poison and Faster Pussycat reveled in simplicity, Cinderella’s songwriting possessed a maturity foreign to the rest of the genre. With his 2013 solo record, , Tom Keifer has released an album that make the 80′s seem like a distant memory.

Andrew Bilach, Music, Music Interviews, Owl »
The Right Thing, the second full-length Owl album will be released on April 9th, 2013. This record truly lives in the moment. It’s very primal, organic, competent rock music played with conviction. The Right Thing opens with a cover of The Kinks track “Destroyer.” An album opening with a cover – daring and unconventional, to say the least. As far as I’m concerned, this is rock and roll, the way it should be – not an overthought collection of songs that all sound identical.
Adler, Music Interviews »
“I like being surprised. I also don’t like knowing the path an interview will travel. That journey makes for a more enjoyable, spontaneous listening experience. Color me impressed with Jacob Bunton. The man is articulate, genuinely optimistic and passionate about music, and… let’s put it like this – he’s the type of guy you could sit and talk music with for days. Back From the Dead, the debut album from Adler is a truly enjoyable listening experience.”
Darius, Music, Music Interviews, Sevendust »
We at All Knowing Force are thrilled to have spoken with arguably the greatest heavy metal frontman of our generation in Lajon Witherspoon of Sevendust. Lajon, or LJ as he likes to be called, really needs no introduction. He’s a dominating presence on stage, fronting a massively respected band that is about to release their ninth studio album, Black Out The Sun, on March 26th.
