Chris Wyse of Owl and The Cult Interview

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.

Jacob Bunton of Adler Interview

“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.”

Lajon Witherspoon of Sevendust Interview

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.

Brian “Head” Welch of Love and Death Interview

Between Here and Lost is worthy of your attention. It’s not a masterpiece by any means, but Head deserves all the credit in the world for not only changing the opinion of the masses, but making people realize he was one of, if not the most important components of one of the most successful bands in heavy music history. Between Here and Lost is worthy of your hard-earned money and then some.

Jacob Bannon of Converge – Rungs in a Ladder Documentary Review

Take 12 minutes of your life and watch this video. A listener sent this over to me with a link to the video and a short note that said: WATCH THIS. You don’t have to be a fan of Converge, or Jacob Bannon, or heavy music to understand the message. Extremely well done.

Deftones <em>Koi No Yokan</em> Album CD Review

“Like a good cheese or a fine wine, Deftones just keep getting better with age. Maybe it’s a sense of pride in the fact that they have outlived many trends in rock music or perhaps it’s the newfound resolve the band acquired when bassist Chi Cheng was put out of commission in late 2008 following a car wreck that left him comatose. Whatever it is, it’s working. While most bands their age are slowing down, Deftones seem to be prolonging their prime.”

Buried Treasures:  ALF, The Verve Pipe, Soul Asylum, God Forbid

“I listened to the latest All The Remains album. I cannot believe this is the same band that released This Darkened Heart and The Fall of Ideals. The under 18 crowd must rejoice. If you no longer bring a lunchbox to school, it’s time to move on. All That Remains 2012 isn’t for you. This buried treasure is a lunchbox. I brought this with me to school during my early grade school days. ALF, at that time, was king.”

Local H <em>Hallelujah! I’m a Bum</em> CD Album Review

Like a warm fire on a cold day, Hallelujah! I’m a Bum is likely to provide comfort for even the most jaded rock fan. Whether you’re burnt out on the redundancy of modern politics of simply sick of hearing the same musical garbage being recycled again and again, Local H’s seventh effort will provide a haven of warmth.

What would the lineup be of your version of the Summerland Tour?

Now is your chance to play the role of promoter, because I absolutely love reading this stuff. Summerland 2012 was nostalgic. If you were promoting 2013, which five bands would be on the bill? Let the debate begin!

If you could bring any artist back from the dead to perform a concert in your favorite club, who would it be and why?

This is a question I’m sure we’ve all asked ourselves, in some form or another. Narrowing it down to one is tough. I’m curious to see what you guys and gals come up with. Perhaps we’ll do some variations of this question down the road, but for now, let’s see what you got.
