14 Questions with Ryan Hunter of NK

When I had heard the news that Envy On The Coast had decided to call it quits I was really bummed. Especially considering that I had missed their last show in SLC. I followed the band’s social media pretty religiously waiting to see if by some miracle they would re-form or we would get to … Continue reading

Concert Review / Interview: Torche – May 28th, Salt Lake City, UT

Torche has been one of my favorite bands for the past five or so years now and I absolutely never miss a chance to see them play live. These dudes seriously put on one of the loudest, most powerful and extremely fun live shows I have ever witnessed. Torche’s brand of bodacious, destructive, bliss-metal is … Continue reading

Interview with Dillinger Escape Plan’s Ben Weinman

A couple of months ago The Dillinger Escape Plan released what is in my opinion the most diverse, energetic, and technically destructive album of their career. One of Us Is the Killer has been playing non-stop in my regular rotation since it’s release.  Since the album’s release in May the band has been out doing what … Continue reading

14 Questions with Night Verses’ Nick DePirro

I love going to concerts. I really, really do. However, over the past year and a half I have tested that love. Before Bearded Gentlemen Music existed I would catch a show only when a band I was really in to would roll in to town. There have been times within this past year or so … Continue reading

Interview / Concert Review: KEN Mode – June 8th, 2013, Toronto

Winnipeg’s KEN Mode have played Toronto multiple times before, but I have never made it out to see their ferocity live. On June 8th, they rolled into town alongside Miami’s sludge kings Torche and Columbus’ Lo Pan and proved their power in person. I also had a chat with KEN Mode’s guitar player and vocalist … Continue reading

16 Questions with Palms’ Aaron Harris

The dissolution of Isis back in 2010 was heartbreaking to any fan of underground metal. Isis was an essential band in every sense of the word, helping pioneer and popularize the post-metal scene. The band’s last album, Wavering Radiant in 2009, hinted at a possible direction for the band that only added to the sting … Continue reading

Interview with Ten Kens

When I first discovered the dark complexity that is Ten Kens third full length Namesake it was honestly a dream come true. I love dark, somber, and introspective music and the density that was contained on the original 10 tracks that were digitally released back in 2012 became an instant favorite of mine. The feeling … Continue reading

Another 15 Questions with Mylets

A lot has changed for Henry Kohen a.k.a. Mylets since we last spoke in December. He’s moved to Los Angeles, is now officially signed to Sargent House, and is living with Sragent house founder Cathy Pellow. Now Mylets days are filled with non-stop practice, playing, writing, and recording for his new full length which should be out next year. … Continue reading

Interview: Phil Cope of Kylesa

Like fellow Georgians Mastodon and Baroness, Kylesa have been pushing the boundaries of heavy music into weird and fascinating places for over a decade now. Each album has seen them embrace more and more otherworldly textures and their latest, Ultraviolet (out May 28th), seeks to be their trippiest yet, with songs that pummel the psyche … Continue reading

Interview with The New Trust

I am new to the awesomeness that is The New Trust. I was exposed to the band from a post on the band Junius’ Facebook page and upon watching TNT’s video for “Compromise” I was hooked. They are the perfect combination of post-hardcore, heavy indie rock, mixed with earnest / clean vocals. One of the first things … Continue reading
