Heavy hard rockers, Throne of Vengeance are putting out a call for help in locating their stolen trailer. They have reported that their trailer was stolen from their storage unit just east of Calgary, Alberta Canada. So please take a look at the picture and share it so we can hopefully locate the unit.

Description: The trailer has TOV lettering spray painted in red on the passenger side, a chrome checker plate splash guard on the front, a white roof vent, and an interstate shield decal on both sides at the rear. License plate #4DC181.



If you don’t already have it, pick up their EP, Live Evil. “‘Live Evil’ is “a collection of songs based on our experiences in the last two years, covering everything from a close friend’s imprisonment for a victim-less crime to the realization of humanity’s demise to the contrast between good and evil and life and death,” says drummer Trevor Cobb.

If there’s anything we would like people to take away from the record, it’s that you should be your own person, do what makes you happy, be aware of your world and be real. We have the power to control our own destiny. Together, we are more powerful than any world leader.”

Make sure to visit their social media sites and stay up to date on their latest news. I will leave you with a video of their performance during Calgary’s Metal Fest.

Opening up for Swedish rockers, Truckfighters was a great heavy rock band from Oakland. Blackwülf put on an incredible set at the DNA Lounge last month. I was glad to have caught them live since I had heard about them but never had the opportunity to see them live.

Blackwülf have a great heavy deep rock sound reminiscent of Tool or Alice In Chains but with more edge/blues in their guitars that I love and a grunge feel to the vocals!  They really put on an excellent show and I am looking forward to more Bay Area shows. Check out the tribute video that Rockin Ryan made with footage and photos from their San Francisco set:


You can pick up their new Limited Edition 12″ Red Vinyl of Mind Traveler as well as some cool merchandise on their website here:  Also make sure to visit their social media sites and stay up to date if they have any shows near you. They are a band, you don’t want to miss!

Cold Black

Last year I told you about a great Heavy Hard Rock band, Cold Black. You can read more about them here. I described them as “having a great heavy sound that reminds me of  some of my favorite bands, like Asking Alexandria blended with Black Veil Brides and a touch of Motley Crue old school style!”.

They have just released a new video for their song, “These Lips Will Go Blue” and it is BAD ASS all the way!!! They have also added Jeff Polson for bass which Victor Rimpler  was handling before with his KILLER vocals. Then you have Alex Rimpler and Martin Dupoint on guitars and Jamal Aaron Gordon on drums.Check out the video here:


The new song is off of their upcoming EP “In Motion” which is set for a December 15th release on Itunes. The new video deo which is produced by Tony Gammalo at Spider Studios, Olmsted Falls, Ohio. I love Cold Black and so wish they would come out here to California. We need more of their music. 

So make sure to take a listen and crank up some Cold Black! Share the video with your friends and visit their social media sites!

In Motion




Nonpoint delivers a shot of adrenaline with every song off of their self-titled ninth studio album.  If you have been a long time fan of Nonpoint, then you know that this album captures their high energy charisma that exudes from their music.  Even though the album was released late 2012, it has been having quite a successful run with the singles off it. The first single “Left for You” had everyone take notice of this album. They had some lineup changes and in 2011 it was like the rebirth of Nonpoint. You really could feel the energetic synergy that these guys were creating and couldn’t help be drawn to their music.  You can pick up your copy at your local music store, Best Buy or head over to Itunes for download.


Nonpoint has been touring quite extensively every since the release of the album and have a grueling schedule that has had them on tour across the country. They have a lot more shows too, so make sure to check out the tour dates below. The album then had great success with their next single, ” I Said It” and most recently “That Day” and they are still more great songs to come.  We had the opportunity to chat with one of the founding members and drummer, Robb Rivera. Take a listen as Robb tells us about their new album, the inspiration behind his clothing line and lots of other great details. So please check it out here:


We are very excited to find out more about Robb’s clothing line Standstrong and hope to keep you updated on a launch date. I am also very excited about knowing a new album is in the WORKS!!  Nonpoint is currently out on tour and are going to be on the Shiprocked Cruise in January! In addition to catching them at one of their upcoming shows, take a look at their VIP packages which include meet and greets, posters and even some Q & A with the band on the bus. You can check availability for your show dates here.  Visit their social media states to stay up to date on upcoming tour dates.   I will leave you with their video for one of my favorite songs, “I Said It”

I have been listening lately to some great Heavy Hard Rock by the Danish Band, Cold Black. I discovered them a few weeks ago and have been anxiously waiting for their EP which is just released. They have a great heavy sound that reminds me of  some of my favorite bands, like Asking Alexandria blended with Black Veil Brides and a touch of Motley Crue old school style! Leave it to the Danish to give us some new awesome hard hitting rock as we continue to thank them for the great gift of Lars Ulrich.

So coming from their hometown of Copenhagen, Denmark; Cold Black is Victor “Terry” Rimpler on Vocals and Bass, Alex Rimpler and Martin “Sane” Dupont on guitars and Jamal Aaron Gordon on drums. They have just released their new video which is produced by Torben Packert, and has Patrick Dræby Ravn on cameras/editing along with Production by Tobias Wiig Jørgensen, Lucas Haim & Pernille Bitsch and the assistance of Patrick Schouw & Anders Elgaard. Victor blends his charismatic chorus with his awesome hard hitting vocals and his pounding bass that is reminiscent of great Gene Simmons of Kiss. Then you get to enjoy the double trouble of Alex and Martin on guitars. Now you throw in Jamal on the drums who loves that ride cymbal bell after his drum fills that will have you wanting more! I hope these guys head out here to the States for some shows because their sound is one that we need more of in live shows!

The video is for their song, “A Song Unsung” which will be on their new EP “From Scratch” that is out on Spotify and Itunes. It has four great songs to get you familiar with their music and I can’t wait to hear more from them. Make sure to go and buy their EP, you will be happy to add them to your Heavy Rock Playlist.

Here is their new video for their song:

Make sure to take a listen and crank up some Cold Black!
