North Jersey Notes: Blackmore, Borgo Pass, Brand Of Jules and More!

Former Diablo Royale singer Adrian Barrios recently reached out to me all the way from the West Coast because he wanted me to check out his new band Blackmore’s debut EP, Law Of Time. I mentioned Adrian’s new band Blackmore back when they first started. Yeah, they’re an …

North Jersey Notes: Robots And Monsters, Blameshift, TM Stevens and More!

Talk about a blast from the past! I recently received an email from my old pal, Dylan Gadino, who I used to feature when he played in the bands Joanie Loves Trotsky and Words Away. I haven’t heard from Dylan in quite a while and last I heard, he was …

North Jersey Notes: Scottish Widows, Skunk Daze, Audio Empire and More!

I don’t usually write about bands from Staten Island, but when I do, they have to be somewhat interesting. Okay, who am I kidding? Nothing interesting ever comes out of Staten Italy. Cashmier might have been the only band who interested me from the Island of Staten until now. I …

North Jersey Notes: Donovan’s Devils, Audio Empire, Lower The Veil and More!

Whoever thought that there was still rock in Old Bridge, NJ since the demise of the Birch Hill Nightclub back in 2003? Well, apparently there is still rock there in the name of these young lads in the band Donovan’s Devils. I stumbled across them when I noticed that …

North Jersey Notes: Blameshift, Mass Punishment, Statik Silence and More!

I recently came across a great band out of Great Neck, NY and I would be lying if I didn’t tell you that the frontwoman didn’t catch my attention, but it did. The name of the band was Blameshift, and they seriously rocked. I sat down and listened to …

North Jersey Notes: Harvest Falls, BoundAlive, Downshallow and More!

A few years back, I wrote about a band called Nuclear Harvest and from what I remember, I gave them a pretty lackluster review because I wasn’t too crazy about the singer, which is the case in most of my reviews. If your singer isn’t jaw-dropping amazing, why even bother, …

North Jersey Notes: Another Distraction, The Compulsions, Seas Of Wake and More!

You have to love it when a really good rock band comes across your desk. You also have to love it when sites like Facebook allow you to connect with these bands. A couple of weeks ago, I got a private message from a kid named Antonio Staropoli, whose opening …

North Jersey Notes: BoundAlive, Killcode and More!

Great things are happening for my bros in BoundAlive. Besides revamping the lineup since the passing of guitarist Danny Sainovski almost six months ago by adding guitarist Kris Norris from the band Stonecult and on bass, my bud Jimmy Whip from the band NY Fury, the band was also …

North Jersey Notes: Gothic Knights, Chevonne And The Fuzz, Thank You Scientist and More!

I’m not sure what it is, but I am a sucker for music that has a taste of nostalgia attached to it. That’s the feeling that I get when I hear the music of Brooklyn’s Gothic Knights. A friend actually turned me on to them after he saw the …

North Jersey Notes: Lethal Affection, The Compulsions, Black Flag and More!

One of the bands that performed at last weekend’s Jersey Shore Festival in Seaside Heights was New Brunswick’s own Lethal Affection. Where the hell have these guys been hiding? Musically, they are awesome! Singer Noah Simon has a great voice, but as I’m listening to songs like “Taste Of …
