None More Black, back to business

Monday, June 7, 2010, 12:32 PM
One of the most exciting parts of last summer was some activity among one of Philly’s best who have decided to give it another go, None More Black.

Metallica's "Big Four" tour to be shown live in movie theaters

Friday, May 21, 2010, 10:51 AM

Prepare your ears, Boris is coming

Thursday, May 20, 2010, 12:42 PM
Since the release of 2005’s Pink, Boris has been making it cool to like metal again, even though they aren’t so easily pinned down to the genre.

Two great bands, landmarks of their respective genres, teamed up to fill the Trocadero on Friday night. From the outside, a Thursday/Converge tour sounds crazy. From the inside, it was oh, so right.

Monday, April 5, 2010, 11:45 AM
How many times have you stood in front of a mirror blasting AC/DC or Metallica, recreating Tom Cruise’s “Old Time Rock and Roll” freak out from Risky Business? If the number is reaching the triple or quadruple digits, the U.S. Air Guitar Championship is exactly where you need to be... Read more

Friday, March 26, 2010, 11:32 AM
This city must collectively be going crazy, there’s no other explanation for this weekend’s Dillinger Escape Plan show at the Church not being sold out yet.
