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 …

North Jersey Notes: Boxed Wine, Statik Silence, Santino Noir and More!

This week, I came across a great local North Jersey band that normally I would not listen to, but something about them was just really fun! When I say that I normally wouldn’t listen to them, I mean their style of music, but then again, writing this column, I have …

North Jersey Notes: Black Angel Down, Apostrophes, The Compulsions and More!

Yes, I know that this column is called North Jersey Notes and this week’s act is from Maryland, but my band, BlackOcean, just played a show with these strapping young lads down at The Saint for Lower The Veil’s CD release party, and I thought they were absolutely awesome! The …

North Jersey Notes: Eye Ra Haze, Judge The Fallen, Generation Kill and More!

I came across an interesting project that I’ve never heard of before, but they seem to have all of the right people working for them. They’re based out of Brooklyn, and they’re called Eye Ra Haze. By the way, I’d like to make a note of something that I’ve noticed. …

North Jersey Notes: Bad Seed Rising, Causticaudio, Charetta and More!

This weekend, one of my favorite bands from the ‘80s era, Heaven’s Edge, will be reuniting for one night in Philadelphia this Friday night (11/8) at World Café Live, but they’re not who I’m featuring this week. It’s the band that they have opening for them that really caught my …

North Jersey Notes: Riotgod, Brand Of Julez, Steve Bello Band and More!

One band that I never seemed to have gotten around to in all my years of writing this column was Monster Magnet drummer Bob Pantella’s other band, RiotGod. These guys are absolutely awesome! I love the sludgy guitar riffs of guitarist Garrett Sweeny and the vocal stylings of Mark Sunshine …

North Jersey Notes: Cracked Alice, Rahway, Fastride and More!

There’s an amazing show happening this Saturday night (10/26) at the Studio at Webster Hall in NYC featuring two local heavyweights in my bros Panzie* and Killcode, but it’s one of their support acts that tickled my fancy this week. The name of the band is Cracked Alice, and I …

North Jersey Notes: Faith Or Fear, Lower The Veil, Charetta and More!

Since I moved to the South Jersey area and joined a South Jersey band, I kept on hearing about this thrash group Faith Or Fear. I guess being a North Jersey boy my whole life, I never knew about these guys, but they are apparently as legendary to the South …

North Jersey Notes: Streetlight Circus, Stagger, Voodoo Terror Tribe and More!

I came across another great New York City band last week and they go by the name Streetlight Circus. I’m starting to notice a trend coming out of the city that never sleeps. There’s more rock ‘n’ roll coming out of it more than ever and they’re starting to make …
