Danzig ‘Skeletons’ Review: Some diamonds in the rough amidst a few misfires. Punk/Metal icon Glenn Danzig has been teasing the release of his covers album Skeletons for years, and now it’s finally here. It’s a curious album: many tracks show songs which obviously influenced the frontman’s formative years (Black Sabbath’s N.I.B, Elvis Presley’s Let Yourself Go), while others […]
Danzig ‘Blackest of The Black’ Austin, TX Concert Review: Devilish Metal was alive and well at Stubbs’ Waller Creek Amphitheater. Even in a city as hipster-centric as Austin, a week bookended by two ACL Festival installments is pushing it. So thank God (I mean Satan) for Danzig’s Blackest of the Black Festival, which added a much-needed […]
Stream Teenage Time Killers New Album ‘Greatest Hits Vol. 1’: punk-metal supergroup stream album ahead of official release next week. Supergroup Teenage Time Killer’s highly awaited début album ‘Greatest Hits Vol. 1’ (Reprise Records) won’t be officially released until July 31st.

Prong-Songs From The Black Hole Review: Prong crafts a unique and entertaining collection of songs that honor their hardcore influences. Prong have been on a roll. In the past three years they’ve released two acclaimed albums (the most recent being 2014’s Ruining Lives), proving that founding member-guitarist/vocalist Tommy Victor isn’t resting on his laurels. He’s made […]
Concert Review: Prong At Backstage Live San Antonio. Tommy Victor’s genre-defying metal act rip through a satisfying setlist. Prong have always been a metal act hard to characterize; morphing from thrash to post-punk, industrial, and groove metal, they’re the perfect band for the metal head that gets bored easily. Their ability to mine many variations […]
Prong ‘Ruining Lives’ Review: Tommy Victor returns with guns blazing for Prong’s latest release. When I interviewed Prong frontman Tommy Victor last year, he mentioned the next Prong album would draw upon the alternative industrial metal sound of albums like ‘Cleansing’ and underrated follow-up ‘Rude Awakening.’ Click here for Albums Revisited; Prong’s ‘Cleansing’ Turns 20 […]
Albums Revisited: Prong’s Cleansing Turns 20. Looking back at an underrated, yet influential masterpiece. This Saturday marks the 20th anniversary of Cleansing, Prong’s 1994 metal masterwork. Prong are a band I’ve covered on several occasions (click here for my interview with band leader Tommy Victor). They’re a band that deserved to be huge, yet never […]
The SLIS Interview with Tommy Victor. Tommy Victor has been busy. Last year saw the release of Prong’s ‘Carved Into Stone‘, one of the band’s best to date (click here for my review). In addition he played on Ministry’s latest album ‘Relapse‘ and is currently touring with Danzig for his 25th Anniversary tour. He’s also […]
