North Jersey Notes: Lords Of Mercy, Sundown Conspiracy, Negative Sky and More!

My bros from Lords Of Mercy have finally released their self-titled debut full-length via Main Man Records. The guys launched Lords Of Mercy by way of a pretty successful CD release party at the legendary Stone Pony a few weeks back during a pretty bad snowstorm. Lords fans braved the …

North Jersey Notes: Chevonne And The Fuzz, Judge The Fallen, Voodoo Terror Tribe and More!

I recently came across an amazing North Jersey band that hosted some familiar faces within it and believe it or not, these guys and gal are doing the right thing and not becoming complacent here in the local music scene. They’ve taken their local band to a national level and …

North Jersey Notes: Tarpit Boogie, Lower The Veil, Full Out Freak and More!

One of my high school buds, Chris Hawkins, recently reached out to me because he wanted me to check out his latest project called Tarpit Boogie. Chris was always one of my favorite metal drummers on the New Jersey music scene. He used to play with a metal band …

North Jersey Notes: Beyond Dishonor, Killcode, Mass Punishment and More!

I recently came across a great band out of Trenton that could single-handedly be Jersey’s best-kept metal secret. (How many times have I used that statement this year?) Anyway, the name of the group is Beyond Dishonor, and I stumbled across them when my Facebook friend, Leo, was bragging how …

North Jersey Notes: Boxed Wine, Statik Silence, Santino Noir and More!

This week, I came across a great local North Jersey band that normally I would not listen to, but something about them was just really fun! When I say that I normally wouldn’t listen to them, I mean their style of music, but then again, writing this column, I have …

North Jersey Notes: Black Angel Down, Apostrophes, The Compulsions and More!

Yes, I know that this column is called North Jersey Notes and this week’s act is from Maryland, but my band, BlackOcean, just played a show with these strapping young lads down at The Saint for Lower The Veil’s CD release party, and I thought they were absolutely awesome! The …

North Jersey Notes: Eye Ra Haze, Judge The Fallen, Generation Kill and More!

I came across an interesting project that I’ve never heard of before, but they seem to have all of the right people working for them. They’re based out of Brooklyn, and they’re called Eye Ra Haze. By the way, I’d like to make a note of something that I’ve noticed. …

North Jersey Notes: Bad Seed Rising, Causticaudio, Charetta and More!

This weekend, one of my favorite bands from the ‘80s era, Heaven’s Edge, will be reuniting for one night in Philadelphia this Friday night (11/8) at World Café Live, but they’re not who I’m featuring this week. It’s the band that they have opening for them that really caught my …

North Jersey Notes: Riotgod, Brand Of Julez, Steve Bello Band and More!

One band that I never seemed to have gotten around to in all my years of writing this column was Monster Magnet drummer Bob Pantella’s other band, RiotGod. These guys are absolutely awesome! I love the sludgy guitar riffs of guitarist Garrett Sweeny and the vocal stylings of Mark Sunshine …
