Filter is back with their heaviest and darkest album to date Crazy Eyes! It’s a quick one, but fans of Filter will appreciate the details Richard brought forth inside his answers to our questions! Page 44 or On our daily blog HERE
Between his work writing and illustrating comic books and his music which travels through punk, acoustic folk, and noisy rock ‘n’ roll, he and his monolithic talent shine through the prisms of various modes of expression. On his new album, Manhattan, his decade-plus of story-telling and emotional honesty in songwriting coagulate into what may be his most solid release yet. Jeffrey Lewis sat down with Vandala to shed some light on his work. Page 44
Norway’s Mortiis is back with his most anticipated release ever; “The Great Deceiver. A crushing industrial music effort that is bound to take listeners into the hellish musical mind of Mortiis for the better which he talks about with Vandala. Page 76
