On “Ladder Work,” the final track from Long Island metalcore band Stray From The Path’s latest album, Euthanasia, fans hear a chirpy voice deliver one of the most chilling answering machine messages you’ve ever heard. “Hello! To meet the criteria required for euthanasia, you must have an incurable, constant state of unbearable suffering. If you think you qualify, please press one.”  “Every day, there’s some sort of unbearable suffering, where some new law has passed that says people can’t be in control of their bodies anymore or children are shot up. Every day, there’s something ..read more

When Miss May I first began to make plans for their seventh studio album, Curse Of Existence, in late 2019, they were admittedly in a bit of a lull.

Like so many others, Miss May I were filled with uncertainty, aggression and an overwhelming sense of hopelessness, topics tha ..read more

Flip-flop-toting patrons wander aimlessly in casinos with ceilings painted to look like the night sky, without ever once leaving to breathe fresh air. It’s also deceptively and depravedly… fun? There is no place that feels less fitting than here to meet Architects bandleader Sam Carter, a vegan and environmental ..read more

Unquestionably, metalcore and its associated subgenres have traditionally been masculine. Even in the way we describe the music, with “brutal” screams and “savage” breakdowns, the metal lexicon occasionally can make it challenging for someone with an alternative gender identity. While we’ve seen a gradually increasing inclusion of female and nonbinary artists breaking the mold for the LGBTQIA+ community, the disparity is far from overcome. With the help of San Diego sasscore shape-shifters SeeYouSpaceCowboy and their vocalist Connie Sgarbossa, all that can change. Raised in the macho worlds of ..read more
