Review by Sammy Key: I like going to shows. I like the throngs of people, the noise of a crowd, the sweat. I like dealing with surly merch people, and I like coming home at 2 am with my ears ringing and my hair looking like I just got into a fight with a large animal. Because it’s worth it. There’s nothing like that post-show euphoria (and sometimes the consequent depression that follows the next morning when you wake up and realize that no, you aren’t actually a rockstar and yes, it’s now time for school/work/shitty activity of your choice).
But there’s also a lot of potential for disaster at shows. It’s possible you might leave with a bloody nose or a lost wallet. You and your person are not always guaranteed to leave in one piece (cracked iPhones, anyone?) And with all the delicious sensory overload I crave at shows, there’s also an equal amount of distraction that comes along with it. And this is why live CDs/DVDs are so awesome. They give you a chance to see everything – without being crushed and sweated on by somebody twice your size.
In this sense, The Devil Wears Prada have triumphed once again with their release of Dead&Alive, a live recording of their December 13th, 2011 performance at the Palladium in Worcester, MA. To put it simply, this DVD makes you wish that you had been there. But it also makes you feel like watching it at home in the comfort of your own living room (or in my case, bed) is just as good, if not better. READ MORE

Knoxville, Tennessee’s Whitechapel have just released the new track ‘The Darkest Day of Man,’ off of the bands 3rd full-length release (second for Metal Blade), A New Era of Corruption due out June 8th. “The first single we have released from the new album A New Era of Corruption is titled ‘The Darkest Day of Man’ (which can be heard HERE). We played it live during our overseas touring at the beginning of this year in Australia and the UK and were getting a great response from the crowd for it. I feel this song perfectly demonstrates how we have progressed as a band musically and in our song writing, but have not stepped away from our signature Whitechapel sound,” comments guitarist and founding member Alex Wade.
