Fante’s Dust, their name liberally taken from a combination of the Los Angeles author John Fante’s name and his most famous book “Ask the Dust”, are a noise rock band working out of Germany. Their EP “Seconds” is a tightly packed little slab of noise sounding like a combination of a modernized version of late … Read moreFante’s Dust-Seconds
On first listen, one would think this was just another generic metal album. Personally I don’t tend to gravitate towards the cookie monster vocal set and I get really bored with paint by numbers metal acts. On this record all of the metal stereotypes are on display, but I think that’s the point, and dismissing … Read moreTemple of Void-Of Terror and the Supernatural

It was one of a handful on the list that grabbed my ear.

This past weekend I spent a great deal of time working on a few of the amps we have in the studio. Three of them have issues severe enough that I thought I’d have to take them in to Al’s Diner for proper repair, but after doing some reading I decided to at least attempt … Read moreAdventures in amp repair.
For the record this is not going to be a review of the album. That’s been done to death. What I want to write about is the relationship I have with this album. First released in 1986 when I was in high school, Slayers “Reign In Blood” hit me like a dead body from a … Read moreSlayer – Reign in Blood
