TOURNIQUET - Gazing at Music
HM Magazine veteran Lee Haley had a chance to catch up with Tourniquet's Ted Kirkpatrick about the long-awaited new album. Here's their conversation. Lee: What was the inspiration behind Gazing at Medusa? Ted: I’ve always liked Greek mythology and Hindu mythology and all that stuff. I thought, "What is it that I hear more from fans than almost anything else?" It is that they feel defeated. They feel defeated in life. Whether they are a believer or not, it's very easy to get
TOURNIQUET - Gazing At Medusa
Editorial Note: Ok, so I'm a bit late to the game … what's new. Van Pelt and Gatto have already nicely reviewed this, and so I spent some time debating if I should even add my 2 cents. But as I come at this from a slightly different perspective - sharing some feelings and observations with each of them - I thought it might be worth posting. And, if you can even imagine, I went so far as to rate it with a number. - Doc. Gazing At Medusa should by all rights (looking at the cov
TOURNIQUET- Gazing at Medusa
Tourniquet fans are obsessive. When a band comes out of the box with 2 classics like Stop the Bleeding and Psycho Surgery, fans are going to pore over every detail of each album and development with a magnifying glass.

Like most of you, I love the Tourniquet setlist mainstays (aka the hits), but the band has also scored high with obscu

Taking a Bloodbath with TOURNIQUET
We had a chance to catch up with the three core members (Ted Kirkpatrick, Luke Easter, Aaron Guerra) of the ever talented metal outfit Tourniquet. Here is how it went down. JM: So, it has been nine years since the last studio album. What have you all been up to? Ted: Well, that was the last release on Metal Blade, and it kind of became a big mess. They did a great job, but part of the issue was the fact that we had such a large fan base in the Christian market and for Metal B
