North Jersey Notes: The Bunks, Raftree, Rahway and More!

Worship Anthrax: An Interview with Charlie Benante

One of my favorite metal bands of all time as a young boy growing up in the suburbs of New Jersey was always Anthrax. They always ran alongside Metallica for me and the fact that these guys were local always left a spot in my heart for them. Anyway, a …

North Jersey Notes: Know Your Enemy, Aurin, Vextion and More!

One of the bands I’ve been meaning to check out was one of my Facebook friends, Sam Walters, new band, Driven Mad. I received an invite to “Like” their page a few weeks back and just recently got a chance to give them a listen. Musically, they are bone-crushing, …
