North Jersey Notes: Luminis And Echofission!

LUMINIS—Springfield, NJ

Luminis singer Tara Oritz emailed me recently looking for coverage for her band. I went and gave Luminis a quick listen and found them to be rather interesting. The music was heavy at times with some really melodic and mellow changes and powerful, almost operatic, vocals from Tara. …

North Jersey Notes: Blinded By Anger

Holy crap! I just got off of the MySpace page of Blinded By Anger and my ears are still scorching! My bass brother, Mikey “Driveby” Ferriera, has been working on this project ever since his band Trudge broke up a few years ago. I know that Mikey’s been cooped up …
