Interview with Kylesa: Trusting Their Gut

A couple of months ago I found a YouTube channel in which the gentleman on camera reviews new albums. Out of my own curiosity to seek new music to listen to and expand my own musical palette, I watched reviews of rap artists I’ve never heard of before, sophomore efforts …

Interview with Bryan Giles from Red Fang: The Beast And The Mountains

Rife with shenanigans and a willingness to enjoy themselves that most heavy metal completely eschews and mocks every chance it gets, Portland, Oregon’s Red Fang are a unique beast when it comes to all things loud.
