Kill The Sun is not the album you would have expected Cane Hill to release – it is softer and mellower than their previous releases – but it is exactly this change in sound that makes this release Cane Hill’s best so far. All six tracks on this release are interesting musically and lyrically. It is a superbly balanced album that will undoubtedly broaden Cane Hill’s audience. Kill The Sun is a strong contender for 2019’s album of the year.

One time I surprised my girlfriend with tickets to see Lydia (she loves ‘em). We were running late for some reason and were stressed out, but thought it was totally fine because Lydia was supposed to be the third band. WELL, one of the other bands dropped that night, so they played earlier than we expected and we ended up completely missing their set. It was one of those “I’m laughing right now because are you fucking kidding me” kind of moments.

On January 18, FEVER 333 released their debut full-length album, STRENGTH IN NUMB333RS. This three-piece band from Inglewood, California, had an EP, Made an America, came out in 2018. Even though they are just getting started, the title track off of the EP has been nominated for a GRAMMY.

STRENGTH IN NUMB333RS opens with an introduction song, “…”. This track sets up the theming for the album with people yelling and chanting “333.” “…,” ends with lead singer Jason Aalon Butler saying “‘What do I want them to know? I want them to know there’s a motherf*cking fever coming’,” before transitioning into “Burn It.” This was the first single released from the album. It’s catchy, and the lyrics are a perfect example of what FEVER 333 are all about.

“Prey For Me/3,” “Inglewood/3,” and “Out Of Control/3” are the longest tracks on the album. In “Prey For Me/3,” I love the play on words between “pray for me,” and “prey for me,” as well as the line “you’re not the only one that feels like the only one.” “Out Of Control/3” is a perfect example of FEVER 333 blending hardcore and hip hop together. The song starts with the anthemic “one, two, three, three, three,” being screamed. “The Innocent” has a chorus that I can’t wait to hear live one day. STRENGTH IN NUMB333RS closes with “Coup D’Étalk,” which ends with a chant of “three, three, three,” and Butler speaking over it, saying “and when we win, because you know we will, it’s all power to all people.”

The more I listen to this album, the more I fall in love with it. It’s hard to choose, but my favorites off of it are “Burn It,” “Animal,” “ONE OF US.” FEVER 333 mixes hardcore and hip hop with lyrics that are meant to inspire change. I’m eagerly waiting for more tour dates to drop, but FEVER 333 are currently opening up for Bring Me The Horizon, and all of their upcoming shows can be found here.

  1. Burn It
  2. Animal
  3. Prey For Me/3
  4. ONE OF US
  5. Inglewood/3
  6. The Innocent
  7. Out Of Control/3

Emerald Sabbath is a monster of a Black Sabbath tribute project founded and produced by Michael Suilleabhain. Upcoming album Ninth Star features ten former Black Sabbath members, as well as a host of other talented musicians.

“She’s Gone” is the first track released from the album that features Dave Walker on vocals, Bill Dwyer on guitars, Neil Murray on bass, Chris Cundy on keyboards, Steve Owers on drums, Lisa Ljungberg on backing vocals and the Ardeton String Quartet. It is a beautiful Black Sabbath song that Emerald Sabbath covered to perfection. All the original sentiment of the track is included in their cover. They did not overcomplicate the song and stayed true to its spirit. However, there is something special about Emerald Sabbath’s version that makes it even better than the original.

How Many Mics Do You Need?

Every band ever has been asked “How many mics do you need?” when they walk onstage to set up at a new venue. Twice, the question has wound up meaning more, in retrospect, than it should’ve.

A million years ago in Texas, I was playing drums in a metal band called Black Spiral. We were very young and still trying to find our sound. There had been three of us — a bassist, guitarist, and me, on drums — and we’d been trying to add a fourth. First, we’d auditioned a weedly-weedly lead guitarist who could shred but came with bleached-blonde hair and a vibe to match. No. Next came a singer, and dude had a great voice. He fronted a band we were friends with on the local scene, singing and playing guitar, and when he said he’d be open to doing vocals with Black Spiral, we felt like we’d hit one over the fence. We rehearsed, wrote a couple new songs, and felt like we were really heading in a great direction, so we put a show together. We handled the whole night — we got a new band we believed in to open, and the singer’s other band, and then Spiral would close out the night. Everything was going really well until…halfway through a song…our singer announced he needed a smoke break, and just straight bailed. Walked offstage.

After a few bars, it became clear he wasn’t going to come back. Again, this wasn’t just the middle of a show…this was the middle of a *song*. So after some awkward eyebrow flashes and urgent jerks of the head from me and the guitarist, our bass player stepped up to the only mic onstage. He started singing, but wasn’t a great singer. As he delivered the performance, though, the realization of what had just happened washed over him, and he started *screaming* into the microphone. I started banging the shit out of the drums, and we became three musicians united under a banner of rage. As it happened, somebody was running a recording off the sound board that night, and we heard it a week or so later. In that moment, our band was born. Even though our bassist wasn’t a great singer, he could growl and scream with the best of them. When we heard the sound board recording, we realized — really, all at once and in unison — “This is the band. This is the sound.” We stopped looking for another member, our bassist stepped over to the one mic, and we owned that we were a screaming, angry death metal band. So when we recorded our only full-length album a couple years later, that was the lineup we went to war with.

Fast forward to another century, and I’m in Los Angeles, now playing guitar and singing for Sci-Fi Romance. We’re setting up at a place on Hollywood Blvd. called The Pig N’ Whistle, where Judy Garland held her 16th birthday party. We’re loading in, and a guy comes up and asks, “How many mics do you need?” It was just me, so I said, “Just the one,” but he said, “Is it cool if I set up two?”

Uh…? I asked why, and this guy — who I thought belonged to the house — told me that he’d told the door that he was in my band so he could get into the venue for free. He assured me that he could lay down “some sick freestyles over my shit” if I just let him hang on stage with us. I demurred. By that time, I knew who Sci-Fi Romance was as a band, and was pretty secure in the fact we didn’t need a freestyle rapper to give the joint character. I knew then and I know today I made the right decision in that moment, but I am a big enough man to admit that there is some small part of me that wishes I could have seen the train wreck that would have resulted from a freestyle rapper on Hollywood Boulevard laying down some sick freestyles over my folk songs about steel-driving men and old sci-fi novels and outer space shit. Oh well. I’m sure one day Kanye might come calling…
