BOB SEGER @ PEPSI CENTER | TUES, 4/2/13 While Bob Seger might be immortalized by his long-running Chevy ads that featuring "Like a Rock" and the scene in Risky Business where Tom Cruise sings along to "Old Time Rock and Roll," there's a lot more to the guy than that. He's carved out a spot in the ro ... More >>
Denver is the capital of Colorado. It is located exactly one mile above sea level. Weed is legal here, while riding your bike on the sidewalk is not. Your mom can make more free throws than Andre Iguodala -- these are all facts. The music scene here sucks ass...now, that is an opinion. The differenc ... More >>
As people who think about, talk about, write about, listen to and make music, it's not surprising that the most common (and favorite) topic of conversation among us is the same: "What are you listening to right now?" Stick a quarter in us, and, boy, wouldn't you know it, off we go, on and on about t ... More >>
Formed nearly a decade ago in Austin, Texas, the Sword, with its sludgy guitar work and the fantastical themes of its lyrics, is often assigned the stoner rock designation, and understandably so. But while the band certainly bears the clear influence of bands like Black Sabbath, Sleep and Led Zeppel ... More >>
The members of Speedwolf (due tonight at the Marquis Theater) specialize in brand of no frills metal in the vein of Motorhead and Venom, played with the playful ferocity of a hardcore band. The guys are not necessarily carrying the torch for that older style of heavy music as much as they'r ... More >>
TestamentTestament (sharing a bill tomorrow night at Summit Music Hall with Anthrax and Death Angel) is one of the bands that make a strong case for expanding the Big 4 to the Big 5 (or Big 6, if the often overlooked Exodus were included). The Bay Area act was part of the original thrash move ... More >>
Denver-based snowboard manufacturer Never Summer Industries celebrates its 20th anniversary season this winter, and the party starts tonight at 7 p.m. at Summit Music Hall with the world premiere of the second full-length team video, Shred Em' All, followed by a thrash-rock set and Metallica ...

Our bad. We haven't checked our fave celeb website toofab.com in like, forever (that's the more chill, fashion-oriented baby of TMZ.com, the best website for non-information since Perez got skinny and boring). Late last week, this photo surfaced of Ryan Gosling holding a baby. No explanation ... More >>
Grab the Guinness Book of World Records, because we've got a ridiculous tale to tell. Earlier this week, a man in Australia purchased a Led Zeppelin T-shirt for $10,000, making it the largest sum anyone has paid for a vintage band shirt. That doesn't mean there aren't shirts that are valued h ... More >>
Stephanie CabralBorn a year after MTV's inception and surviving the Headbanger's Ball-era, Death Angel (playing tonight at the Larimer Lounge with Four Horsemen and Steel Blades of Vengeance) is an integral part of thrash metal's history. The band members were in their early teens when the 1986 demo ... More >>
While Portland, Maine's Cruel Hand has been identified with that strangely durable neo-hardcore style of the last decade, the band's sound stretches a little further, encapsulating the diverse energy and heaviness of Metallica and Bouncing Souls. Vocalist Chris Linkovich leads Cruel Hand with ... More >>
An average Misfits fan.Personally, it's been the "One Bad Album" rule. That's all it takes for a band's musical reputation to be asterisked forever, which makes getting a tattoo of that band, well, risky. You have to wonder how often thirty-somethings across the land hear "Nice Chi' Pep's tat ... More >>
In recent years, there's been a parade of artists refusing to license their tracks, whether it's been for use in video games, commercials or television shows. Seems like some of these old timers have sticks up their butts when it comes to relinquishing artistic control and just don't get it. ... More >>
It was almost six weeks ago that metal legend Ronnie James Dio died and the tributes keep rolling in. Yesterday, a video appeared online that featured members of thrash mainstays Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax sharing their memories of the man. The video was originally recorded and broadc ... More >>
Perhaps you've heard by now about the "riot" that happened a few days ago in New York surrounding a free concert featuring Drake and Hanson. Weird that there was a riot at a concert featuring two of maybe the blandest performers ever to exist. Weirder still is that Hanson and Drake were even perform ... More >>
When we were in grade school, our choir used to sing old chestnuts like "Tie a Yellow Ribbon," which is probably why joining the choir seemed like slightly less fun than getting our lunch money stolen. But the times, they are a changin'. At least in India, they are. Yeah, India. Apparently, in I ... More >>
What you might have missed this week while chowing on some Nut Poppers...Green chile mania! Jason ranked the top ten green chile joints in Denver, and even got some input on the best vegetarian versions. We pitted El Taco de Mexico's chile against Santiago's and found a surprise victor.W ... More >>

Looks like massive props are due to the fine young gentlemen of Havok. The thrash metallers just became label mates of Opeth, Obituary, Emperor and Crowbar, by joining the Candlelight Records roster. Good for them, we say. The guys have certainly put in their work since I first caught them way back ... More >>
