Where does the time go? I can hardly believe how fast we are closing in on a a year since AMS Radio had the pleasure of premiering two new music videos by Quebec City's Mal Fantome. During that time and since then the band has been riding the coattails of their well received, top tier … Continue reading Mal Fantome DEBUTS New Video!
If there's one thing to be said about Ghana's Alwayne, it's that he is always grinding. "Always Alwayne," if you will. It takes all but a few seconds into an interaction with Alwayne to understand right up front that the man is about his business. About the hustle. Lock and step that makes a great … Continue reading Alwayne’s Fire -Q&A
A fascinating sub-genre to me has always been Melodic Death Metal, or "Melodeath" to some. Like most genres or sub-genres, the beginnings of it are of topical debate and have lots of credit to go around. Many point back to various bands from the mid 90s as pioneers. For me personally, given my age, generation, … Continue reading Welcome to the “Lair of The Gloomweaver” – BrunDarkh
"Who ate all your sad day sorrows?" That is very much a real question for you, because there is a definitive answer to it. There are two types of people in this world: ones who know the answer to that, and ones who are in need of an enlightenment. You would know which side of … Continue reading Q&A with Wise John: Wedding Crasher
Albuquerque, New Mexico is a place that fascinates me. I've never been, so my fascinating is purely speculative. When I think of it, I think of two things: Bugs Bunny and Walter White. Quite a spectrum. And now that I think about it, I think of three things. The third would be the Industrial Metal … Continue reading Dunwhich Dreams Announce New Single “The Black Wings of War” (pre-save)
Punk Rock. Let's talk about it. It's a topic of much debate in sub-culture regarding where it started, who started it, who's the "punkiest" of them all, etc. None of that is of much consequence for me, honestly. I just happen to find it to be a fascinating discussion. It's not a hill I need … Continue reading The Fades have “Night Terrors”
The idea of a "concept" album was first adopted, as far as I can tell, with The Beatles "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" and The Who's "Tommy"-- which might be more in the "rock opera" vein-- but that's neither here nor there. Indeed, at the time it was "dramatic" for an LP to dare … Continue reading Jackson Watson’s Concept Album and Outlook – Q&A
No stranger to AMS Radio, nor our blog, Band w/o Band is back with a brand new single entitled, "Get Down" released just yesterday October 27th! I took up the opportunity to listen to it a few times yesterday. And maybe it's the freshness of new music, maybe it's the song's creepy new, throwback gothic … Continue reading Band w/o Band Gets Down

It's an odd thing to be in the unique position of writing your own press release. Some might say it's empowering. Definitely streamlines things a bit. Some might say, "it's not Pro." The best part about the Quizboy project is that "not pro" is perhaps not only the preferred method, but it's almost a fun … Continue reading Quizboy Still Weird: New EP Press Release
