“Music comes down to passion,” says P.O.D. frontman Sonny Sandoval. “There are not a lot of bands out there today who have that. But I think that feeling is coming back around again.”
P.O.D. (Payable on Death) certainly has the right to talk about passion in music. Passion has been front and center since the band formed in 1992 in San Diego, CA, and all the way up to the release of their eighth and latest record, Murdered Love. Over the last two decades, the group has sold over 10 million albums (including 2001’s triple platinum record Satellite), garnered four No. 1 music videos, three Grammy nominations and over a dozen rock radio hits, including “Southtown,” “Alive,” “Youth of the Nation” and “Goodbye For Now.” Music trends have come and gone, but P.O.D.’s fanbase has seemingly only grown stronger.
Alien Ant Farm
Since the formation of Alien Ant Farm in 1995, the quartet has enjoyed worldwide success. Over the course of their four studio albums, cumulative sales surpass five million units a Grammy nomination and 4 top 10 singles. The band built a massive following on the road early in their career via high profile 2001 runs with Linkin Park, Papa Roach, Warped, and as the headliner on an MTV presented Fall Tour. In 2002, fame spread across the world, bringing Alien Ant Farm to the major European festivals, Australia's Big Day Out and a headline run in Japan. The following year they returned to Europe with Metallica, and to this day the band has steadily delivered audiences in territories across the globe.
Distilling heavy metal, hip-hop, punk, and rock into a potent sonic strain, POWERFLO lives up to its name. The vision of GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum CYPRESS HILL spitter Sen Dog, BIOHAZARD vocalist and guitarist Billy Graziadei, downset. guitarist Rogelio “Roy” Lozano, x-FEAR FACTORY bassist Christian Olde Wolbers, and drummer Fernando Schaefer from the Brazilian band WORST, the band draws on this powerhouse pedigree to collectively smash boundaries with the 2017 full-length debut, Powerflo [New Damage Records] OUT NOW!
Fire From The Gods
Heavy music deserves a heavier message.
That’s what Fire From The Gods deliver on their Rise Records debut, Narrative.
Speaking from a platform cast in heavy metal power, hip-hop consciousness, and even a little reggae spirit, the Austin, TX quintet—AJ Channer [vocals], Jameson Teat [guitar], Drew Walker [guitar], Bonner Baker [bass], and Richard Wicander [drums]—urge for change through conveying a story that’s both personal and universal.
In an age where it seems like albums just aren't what they used to be, The Hollow set out to do the unthinkable... write an album full of great music, where every song matters and every song moves you in some way... an album that grabs you from beginning to end, doesn't let go and leaves you wanting to come back for more... and more. The new self-titled album opens with the intriguing atmospheric guitar melodies of Run Away and over the journey of 12 songs, explodes into driving rhythm sections, huge crunching guitars, powerful vocal performances and leads you into an out-of-body/out-of-mind sounding experience of the album's final track Feel So Alone. To put it simply, The Hollow rocks... and every song on this album deserves to be cranked up and enjoyed!
