(8/10) US-punk ambassadors Zebrahead had their foundation in the late '90s and it's 'Brain Invaders' being theirnewest delivery in the here and now. The quintet recorded 14 new songs with the first one being a real musical wrecking ball. I had to check the CD if it's right one that went into the player. 'When... Continue Reading →
Coheed And Cambria released a new video. The clip is done for the song 'True Ugly' and fuses live impression with band members wearing various animal masks.

Already at that time the music was fascinating, combining many different aspects – from metalcore screams to melodic choruses.

The young guitarist is gifted with a great sense for music and shouldn’t be reduced to ‘being the son of’ only. Steve Harris and Iron Maiden might have helped the guys to get off...
