An old face showed his ugly head in a new project. Well, his head is not really that ugly. I’m not talking about former Panzie* singer Johnny Hawaiian. He recently shot me a private message on Facebook to let me know about his new project, Spiderlord. He let me …

North Jersey Notes: I Am Heresy

One of my best buds on the scene, Mikey Driveby, from the band Civic, recently told me about this new group he’s been listening to. So, I figured if Mikey likes it, they must be good! The name of the band is I Am Heresy, and Mikey’s taste and opinion …

North Jersey Notes: SPiN, Statik Silence, Killcode and More!

North Jersey Notes: Ascending From Ashes

I’ve been seeing this band a lot in my concert calendar, but for some reason I thought that I might’ve featured them before here in North Jersey Notes.
