Pray for Sleep are a newish band from Columbus, Ohio, playing a very modern/contemporary style of harder alternative with influences from nu metal, emo, post-hardcore and metalcore. Members of the band are all in their early 20's and have assembled an impressive debut album with excellent production (courtesy of Will Carlson). What’s even more astounding is that the album was self-released without the support of a record label. One thing astute listeners will notice is a ly
Sometimes I just have to stop and wonder, "where did the time go?" In the music review biz, that often happens when you find a release worth reviewing, and then realize it was released a year ago. That is what is happening here with the Tulsa, OK band XIII Minutes. Somehow, time flew by and their 2019 Rottweiler Records release, Obsessed, slipped by us. So let's rectify this right now.

It’s been almost 7 years since we have heard from As I Lay Dying and the question on everyone’s mind, I’m sure, is was it worth the wait? My answer is a giant yes. The album starts with a chant like intro "Born to Emerge" ushering us into track number two "Blinded" and the answer to all of our questions is answered. The shredding guitars and killer drums prepare us for Tim Lambesis’ grindi
I couldn’t sleep, so I figured I should catch up on writing my reviews. I put on my headphones and cranked up the new War Of Ages album, Void, because I have been waiting what seemed an eternity, even though it was only two years for their new album. "The Watchers" kicks in with almost what I would consider a mantra of even a short in your face sermon of sorts and Leroy Hamp’s in your face vocals let you know that War Of Ages are here and mean business. Clocking in with 11 so
WHAT WE DO IN SECRET JOIN THE FACEDOWN FAMILY Facedown is proud to welcome What We Do In Secret to the Family!

Positioned right in the middle of that dissonance is What We Do In Secret, a Memphis metalcore band that has leveraged aggression to find peace, explored darkness to find light, and comm
