Steelheart - Through Worlds of Stardust

steelheart
Many months ago, when I first heard Steelheart was in the process of making a new album I was beyond excited. Through Worlds of Stardust is their first album in 9 years, and recorded with his studio/touring band. They have been a long-time favorite of mine. Miljenko Matijevic’s voice has always amazed and blown me away. The control and power he has along with his incredible range makes this band one that should never be overlooked. As I have alluded to above, the one thing I have always loved about Steelheart is lead singer, Miljenko Matijevic’s incredible voice. In the opening track, “Stream ...

Scandroid - "Monochrome" Review

Scandroid_Monochrome_cover-1000x1000

Scandroid “ Monochrome ” Review Editor's note: I totally realized i had stated the self-titled debut album was 2017. That is incorrect, as it was released in 2016. Fixed! - Sean Let me start off by saying – I’m a Scandroid fan. There’s nothing I didn’t love about his self titled release in 2016, or the multiple remix albums that followed.  I’ll consider myself a die-hard since The Scandroid project, at least, has been in full swing.  Yes, I’ve picked up every single, and all the goodies.  So, sure, you could group me in with  “Fanboys” if you will, before continuing on, as ...

13 Songs #1

IMG_2729













A couple of days ago, I wrote a piece called “13 Short Reviews For A Rather Unlucky Day.” While I was quite pleased with the way it came out, I was kind of inebriated, to say the least. I realized after I posted the article that I genuinely enjoyed writing the piece, as I’m one who is prone to “skipping” songs just for the sake of seeing what’s playing next. That review gave me a reason to sit down and honestly listen to the song and sort out how I truly felt about whatever song was playing within myself, as I’d set a very strict rule on myself that I could not skip the song just because it wa...

13 Short Reviews For A Rather Unlucky Day

unlucky-cover-













Today has been a rough day.    Correction, rough is an understatement. Do you remember that woman who spilled hot coffee on herself at McDonalds? Right on the crotch. Now imagine yourself being that woman, and that hot coffee you just spilled on your guy-bits isn’t cooling down. The door isn’t working as you try and leave the car, and, somehow, your radio is just playing goddamn “Call Me Maybe” on repeat, and it’s at full blast. the back window is cracked and everyone can see you screaming and flailing about in your car, and they’re all watching and judging, with some pulling out the...

Blacktop Mojo Does It Again - Icepicks for September

btm-1
Never done this before. Came close a few times, yes. But I don’t recall ever actually coming back and making a band I’ve already selected as an “ice pick” to be again, an “ice pick” for a later month. Even if I had, I don’t usually go back to a previous album to project future success. Again. So I’m going to double down and make the call again. I am, however going back to the first album of this band to get an idea of where they came from, compare to their cd they just got off a national tour supporting, and try to get an idea of just what the future has in store for Blacktop Mojo. Covering 39...

Jimmy Ray - Live to Fight Another Day

jimmyray
If I were to ask you how you found your favorite rock band, where does your mind immediately wonder? Maybe you remember that time you were hanging out with your cool Uncle Jeff down in the basement after christmas dinner, and he surprised you with your first record player and “Dark Side of the Moon.” Or maybe it was that outcast kid Eric who always sat in the back of class, smelling of weed, and he introduced you to “Static Age” on a walkman with one of the ear pieces busted. Me? well... I have a secret. I’d love to say my background story was anywhere near as “punk rock” and “cred worthy” as ...

Linkin Park / Chester Bennington - Hybrid Theory 17 Years Later

chester
Chester Bennington unfortunately passed away on 7/20/17. His death has had a very strange effect on me, personally. I’m not a fan, nor have I really been a fan of Linkin Park’s music. Hell, I can honestly tell you, had you asked me prior to 4 days ago, I’d really only be able to tell you that Linkin Park is a band that came out during the age of nu-metal and they did some stuff with Jay-Z at some point. Needless to say, I wasn’t all too familiar. On the day he passed, I opened Facebook to a barrage of posts from heartbroken fans sharing their stories about how Chester and his music had touched...

JIBE - Epic Tales of Human Nature

JIBE
This is tough one for me. When I first started Renegade Radio, everything was new and everyone was “the next big thing”. We spent a few years kinda watching the scene and learning all we could about the best local talent and who the ones “on the verge” were.  11 years ago that was JIBE . If you were in a band the last thing you wanted at this time was to have to play a local show the same night they did cause almost everyone went to JIBE. Hell you probably wanted to go see them too. But again, that was 11 years ago. I’ve changed since then. Certainly the band has or they’d not be bac...
