Inked Out: Hydravolve Studios — Somerdale, NJ

I was driving home from an engagement party one Saturday afternoon on the White Horse Pike, which is a direct route to my house, when my wife noticed a tattoo shop tucked away in this little strip mall. We noticed the place because there was this monster sitting on the …

North Jersey Notes: Killcode, Weapon of Anew, Resurge, and more

A couple of weekends ago, my bros from Killcode released a teaser for their upcoming video for their song “Kicking and Screaming.” The video seemed to be a compilation of live footage from the boys as they rocked festivals in Mexico and South America with Twisted Sister. I have to …
