A Day Of Moments (A.D.O.M) – Demo

Even though this band is still seeking out a guitarist, A.D.O.M.’s sound is quite tantalizing. They’ve only posted four MIDIs on their Myspace page, but it’s hard to miss the talent that went into this sound. Their first track, “When did this happen” is very instrumentally and beautifully put

The Colour – Devil’s Got A Holda Me

There really isn’t anything nice I can say about this band or video. The singer looks like Ashton Kutcher and their sound reminds me of bluesy rehashed classic rock. Leave it to Led Zeppelin, boys. Verdict: The devil got a holda the lyrics. It coulda been worse, I imagine.

Carlos Mencia – Dee Dee Dee

Lyrics here Carlos Mencia needs no introduction, really. This video is hilarious and rings true (lowering the standards?). For your viewing pleasure: Verdict: Pure comedy genius.

The “Hoff” – Jump In My Car

This is the worst video/song ever. The “Hoff” attempts to lure three women into his “talking car” (ahem, KITT). This video is somewhat retro and ridiculously stupid. The girls rebuff Hasselhoff, but later, one is talked into allowing him to take her home. Only when he finds out how

“Are You Suffering?” – Emilie Autumn

I couldn’t have said this better than her myspace page: Combine the violin mastery of Nigel Kennedy, the voice of some alien Siouxsie/Reznor hybrid, and the looks of a post-apocalyptic Marie Antoinette, and what do you get? Emilie Autumn. The pink-haired princess of “victoriandustrial” has already morphed her way

We Will Take You With Us – Epica

On their myspace, I found the unusual sound that is Epica. This music is not like anything I’ve heard before and I can’t stop listening to “Dance of Fate”. Download this now. It is the best metal out there fronted by a female singer.  Very finely crafted musicianship.  The

Hybrid Machinima – Speed Metal Revisited

If you’re into speed metal, like I am, then you will definitely enjoy the sound of Hybrid Machinima. The sound, sounds to me, as if they are influenced by Metallica and Slayer. Their first song, “Virtualputrefaction” on their myspace page, is reminiscent of “Motorbreath” from Metallica’s Kill ‘Em All

Pop Candy at USAToday

Whitney Matheson over at USAToday.com’s Pop Candy blog is bustling with pop culture information and funny (or “icky”) links to a plethora of tidbits for our generation.  She blurbs about Pretty in Pink, Burning Man, and and Audioslave, and that’s just in one day.  I emailed her yesterday to

You, too, Can Have Halloween Every Night of the Week

    With Midnight Syndicate, their lushly smooth sounding flow mystifies you and leaves you wanting more. More is fulfilled with track after track of musical gloominess. This is a highly recommended buy and well worth it. With “Family Secrets” as their first track on their Myspace page, you

Best Black Metal Music

I was introduced to Cradle of Filth via the video for “Nymphetamine”. With Dani Filth’s vocal talent and the band’s creative genius, CoF has become a household name in the US, the goth households, that is. Cited via their myspace page as “a dark source of inspiration and a
