Deathboys

Deathboys are an essential sassy bit of fun right now! Yes, at this moment and from now on!  Trust me, you're are going to love the shit out of San Diego's own,  Deathboys. ♥ They have that sneering vocalist with punk attitude, this distorted but bouncy boinging bass that slaps hard as fuck! Drums? Bitch you're going to love shaking that annoying Quarantine Quarter Ton you gained! I hope you'll find that Deathboys are an essential sassy bit of  fun [...]

Wrath of Gods

Wrath of Gods is.. Darkly heavy raging metaliciousness  that's going to severely damage your neck enticing you to keep up their full on insane drumming, dank loopy bass,  tasty shredding and monstrous vocals. This is perfect music for tearing your room apart as you pretend slamming in the pit with your homies. Okay do a Zoom sesh then!  Fuck this shit isn't forever and I heard about a couple of places that might be open to warehouse sessions. So, just [...]

The Writhers!

Adding "Going to go hella crazy with The Writhers"... to my list of "Things To Do ASAP When It's Safe".  San Diego's Horror Punk / Rockabilly, The Writhers, is one of the most tantalizing gems in the our local music scene. Their creations are slap you silly motivators of  massive debauchery of shameless mayhem. I loved their Horror Punk theme, the  vocals, the bouncy punk rock / rockabilly beats that are truly hardcore but with an occasional tinge of those [...]

Formula 400 creations are for those who adore substantial Stoner Rock that slaps heavy and melodic with tasty riffs, nice finger work  embracing excellent clear to gritty vocals with those beats that's going to carry you through your day.

Some Kind of Nightmare

  Some Kind of Nightmare is rough as hell with an abundance of energy and a fucking delicious rawness that's punk as fuck  perfection. I loved the scratchy vocals that are so specifically in place among this cohesive band. Some Kind of Nightmare is San Diego based but nomadic by nature but lets hope they are in San Diego to lift us up from our doldrums  as soon as this Covid shit is dealt with. Until then, please be sure [...]

Crooked Nuns

Perfect Insolence! With massively addictive beats, catchy guitar and bass keeping it bouncy entwined with perfectly insolent "fuck off" punk vocals, Crooked Nuns is a  San Diego based punk band you need to know! Alright, I don't know much about Crooked Nuns, yet. So, I'm going to share what I have with you and you do whatever you want to do with whatever Crooked Nuns shit I'm sharing. Just be sure to connect with them through the following social media [...]

A description cited in one reviewers post: "If you name your band after the imperative mood of the Spanish verb "Tremble" you better back it up with some appropriate music. Fortunately, these guys from San Diego, USA, proved themselves worthy of their name with their brand of aggressive thrash combined with grind, death and [...]

Hollow Stage

Meet Hollow Stage! Am I slow? Kind of. Why? Hollow Stage also shared the stage at San Diego's SOMA the very same night that The Rookies and Pissed Regardless played. They were on stage when I walked into for an evening of mind blowing entertainment. I would have loved to have caught their full set but what I did enjoy and has definitely whet my appetite to see Hollow Stage again. I hope you feel the same! So, on to [...]
