I got an email from my bud, Dan Lorenzo, recently, and he told me that he was teaming up with his former Hades bandmate, Alan Tecchio, and drummer Ron Lipnicki from Overkill to form a metal cover band called Screaming Metal. Also reaming up on the project are Fuse …

North Jersey Notes: The Champagne Charade

This week, as I surfed the Net looking for some cool bands to write about, I stumbled across a North Jersey band called The Champagne Charade, whom I found full of excellent and energetic guitar riffs with a powerful vocal fronting the band. Singer Saetia La Reoux belts out …

North Jersey Notes: Shat

I was recently on the Dingbatz website, dingbatznj.com, to see what shows were coming up in October, and on Oct. 25, they have a band called Shat playing there. I was like, “What the hell?” I love the name, but what kind of band are they? Now, I used …

North Jersey Notes Updates

My favorite North Jersey acoustic twins, HelenaMaria, were recently on The Today Show modeling popular looks for hair from the recent Spring 2009 fashion shows. I hope that my friend Kathie Lee Gifford was extra nice to this dynamic duo! Anyway, these always-busy twins didn’t stop at just modeling …

North Jersey Notes: Maddam Ink

A couple of weekends ago, my bros from Gotham Rocks Entertainment put on a killer line-up down at Sullivan Hall in NYC consisting of Killcode, Diablo Royale, and Black Water Rising, but one of the big draws that night seemed to be a band from Sellersville, PA. Yes, …

North Jersey Notes: Martyrd

I’ve been getting bombarded with emails lately from a band called Martyrd—they seem to be getting on some pretty big metal bills lately. They’ve opened up for Testament at B.B. Kings in NYC and recently opened for metal gods Raven at L’ Amour in Staten Island, NY, they’re opening …

North Jersey Notes: Our Black Friday

I was surfing the net this week to find a band to feature. Wait a minute! Does anyone “surf” the net anymore? Or is that a ‘90s term? Anyway, I noticed that the “Once Bitten, Twice Shy,” Great White is playing at Dexter’s in Riverdale, NJ, this Friday night, Sept. …

North Jersey Notes: Endall

I’ve been contacted by the boys of Endall for months on end to check out their band. I mean, this was borderline harassment! Just kidding, fellas! Anyway, I finally checked out their e.p.k. on sonicbids.com, and I thought that their music was pretty good. They claimed to be a metal …

North Jersey Notes Updates: Apathy/Evan Toth And The Excuses

Ok, so I recently got a weird text message from Pete Wells of the band Apathy, and I wasn’t sure how to respond. The text read, “Apathy signs a distribution deal! Album goes worldwide in spring of 2009. A promising label is considering as well!” Kind of vague, don’t …

North Jersey Notes: Infernophonic

I was down at my rehearsal studio, Factory Studios 2, in Clifton, NJ, the other night and I heard a band that I haven’t heard before, but their music made sense and their singer had a set of pipes on her. She was almost Joplin-like. The name of the band …
