Rock's Latest Super Group Emerges

It's been a while since the label "super group" has been thrown around the music industry. Well, it's time to dust it off because a very special one has come together to rock the world. S.U.N., or Something Unto Nothing, consists of Sass Jordan on vocals, Brian Tichy (Whitesnake/Foreigner) on guitar, Michael Devin (Whitesnake/Bonham/Kenny Wayne Sheppard) on bass and Tommy Stewart (Godsmack/Fuel/Everclear) on drums. Their debut album has just been unleashed and I had the honor of talking to Sass Jordan about the album and what was in-store for this amazing band. You can read all about it here:

Plus, here is my review of their amazing debut album:

Those Devilish Boys From Charm City Devils

The Charm City Devils seemed to come out of nowhere with their interesting spin on the song "Man of Constant Sorrow" that most people associate with the movie O' Brother, Where Art Thou. These guys are one of the hardest working bands around, both on-stage and off. I got the chance to talk with lead singer John Allen about the band and the crazy year that they had. You can read all about it here:

Jason Newsted Returns With Metal

Jason Newsted stepped into a spotlight after the tragic death of Metallica bassist Cliff Burton. He took over that spot on bass and was there when Metallica crossed over into mega-stardom. He abruptly left the band, but continued to make music. He recently returned to the spotlight with a new EP entitled Metal which is flavored in old-school Metallica that longtime fans crave. I sat down with Jason and talked to him about his new project, his paintings and the state of the music industry. You can read all about it here:

Soulbleed Stay True To Their Metal Roots

Soulbleed is a band who take their music and their influences very seriously. If you are craving some metal that manages to blend brutality and honesty with a rawness that is real, then this band will deliver what you are craving. If you want to learn more about them, then check out my interview with guitarist Steve Marshall:

Alice Sweet Alice : A Sound That's Familiar Yet Unlike Anything You've Ever Heard Before

Alice Sweet Alice is a band that somehow takes their influences and adds their own flair to them to create a sound that's familiar to the ears, yet they don't sound like anything you have ever heard before. The band has a unique vision and a drive that really make them stand out. Check out my interview with founder Scott Martinez:

Sunflower Dead: Theatrical Rock and Roll That Doesn't Suck

Sunflower Dead is one of those bands who come along and make you do a double take, both musically and visually. Their debut album is a melodic mix of killer riffs that can melt your face, but also have you tapping your foot long with it at the same time. They definitely stand out in a rather stagnant industry as they teeter on the edge of breaking into the mainstream. Check out my interview with frontman Michael Del Pizzo:
