North Jersey Notes: Meatplow

My featured band this week isn’t from North Jersey, but these guys need to play up here! Their origin is South Jersey—and I don’t mean like Seaside Heights South Jersey! I mean piney South Jersey! I swear that these bands down south are some sort of metal mutants! The name …

North Jersey Notes: New Theory, Black Water Rising, Panzie* and More!

One local Jersey band that I am absolutely obsessed with lately is a group called New Theory out of Port Monmouth, NJ. The harmonies, the melodies, and the heaviness of their songs really gave me wood. One of the act’s they claim to sound like is Tool and I have …
