There once was a workhorse called Elisium
Whose home was a white metal box on 4 rubber wheels
They were a 3-piece outfit made up of 3 Days Grace and Chevelle,
A pinch of magic, a little mystery or even a little something more…
They’re songs are ambient and brainy
Provoking and aggressive
They are the real deal
Looking them in the eyes will tell you
That’s what it takes in 2017
and what most bands don’t have,
Confidence in themselves and a room to command
A gift of brothers who choose to walk the less traveled path
Setting the example, being bold, and taking a stand
Against the odds, and the trials and tribulations,
And the absolute beauty
of being in a modern rock n roll band
It’s about the “short cuts” and the “small things”
And the blood, sweat and tears… the love, and the passion
The dedication, and the life of effort that goes into it
I’ve been a fan for a few years, especially after sharing some stages

Curse The Fall…. A 4-piece hard rock metal core blend of midwestern musical sauvignon. These boys are from the OKC in our beloved panhandle state. I’m a fan of Oklahomans already so this interview may be a little bias. I’ve personally toured through Lawton and OKC multiple times and love both. Last August, we played on a Sunday night to at least 75 people. Good job Oklahoma. There is a lot of hardworking talent and venues that support the heavy music community. I’m honored and humbled to give my opinion of one their own.
Seasons is a 4:00 min rock hard gritty wall of sound consisting of squishy and pronounced guitars, a bass guitar that fills every 200-500hz void like a musical metal jelly doughnut. You know… like bacon on a maple glazed kind of doughnut… So fuckin good. The drum performance that was captured sounds good. Like the drummer showed up motivated and willing to do his job. Good job! I do feel that drums could have been mixed a bit larger. But what the fuck do i know. And… the singer. I always enjoy a singer who can actually present himself with some emotion, character, and presentation. It sounds like he hasn’t quite found his unique identity as a vocalist, you know that thing we all feel when Randy, Howard, Jesse or one of the lovely Butcher Babies gets behind the mic, but he is well on his way. As the entire band is.
I like the overall composition and length of the song. The dynamics between all the instruments was well thought out and executed for a hard-rock metalcore snack. Although, I believe the bass could have been thicker in the low end and the drums could have been larger the overall mix is good. Sort of like spicy Chex mix without those burnt toasty crunchy things that nobody likes. It’s a tad bit messy getting the Chex dust on your fingers while eating it but you can’t stop eating it because the overall mission is being accomplished. This song fills the belly of the heavy music listeners soul. Thank you.
Gotta go get some spicy Chex mix and listen to the rest of the EP titled Symbiosis which will be available for your listening and purchasing pleasure 11/21/17. Buy Curse The Fall’s new record Symbiosis and then prepare to mack down on Thanksgiving dinner a few days later… I see what you guys did there. Good work! Maybe we’ll see you in OKC sometime or somewhere down the road.

Dirtbag Artist Traverse The Abyss from Scranton, PA have released a new track titled Battle Cry. Click the link to check it out!
We can all agree that 2017 is a strange time to be alive. A time wrought with scandal and tragedy on what seems to be a daily basis. While we all carry different perspectives and ideas about the past, present and future, Dirtbag Endorsed Artists, SUBURBAN VERMIN have given an artistic take on our modern day of weird. “TV HEAD NATION” is the name of their first ever comic book series, and it is being released alongside some new music from the band, as well as some other goodies and add-ins.
I had a chat with the band about the series.
