Interview w/ Gunpowder Gray vocalist Nate Godbee

Gunpowder Gray has dropped a killer self titled E.P. via Boris Records. Hailing from Atlanta Georgia, Gunpowder Gray has proven rock is far from dead and it is alive and well. Listening to this CD reminds me of why I fell in love with rock music in the first place. This E.P. has seven tracks filled with heavy blues riffs, a bad ass rhythm section and a singer who embraces his old school influences. Gunpowder Gray’s self titled E.P. is a must have for everyone.

Motionless In White show review and Interview w/ Josh Balz (keyboardist) in Clifton Parks, NY at the Upstate Concert Hall

Motionless In White came on to a roar of applause as they broke into “Synthetic Love”. Chris “Motionless” Cerulli constantly changes from high-pitched screams to a low echoing tone and he does this so fluidly and so well, that it sounds ten times heavier and ten times better than the album vocals do. Motionless In White is one of those bands that always put in 120% in production, attitude, and energy. I have yet to see anything less at one of their shows. You could feel the energy in the crowd, and the crowd reciprocating by starting a mosh pit … Continue reading Motionless In White show review and Interview w/ Josh Balz (keyboardist) in Clifton Parks, NY at the Upstate Concert Hall
