North Jersey Notes: Frankenstein 3000, Rahway, Natasha Komis and More!

One band that I seriously had the misfortune of overlooking in recent years was Frankenstein 3000. How did I not take a look at this group? They are awesome! I also didn’t even realize this was my buddy Keith Roth’s band. Many of you might recognize Keith from his …

Anyone ever hear of a band called Syrens Calling? Neither have I, until I took a closer look and realized it was none other than Scarlet Carson with a new name and new singer! Apparently, the band kept things under wraps while they re-tooled since the departure of singer …

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: 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 …
