Bader Field, Atlantic City, NJ, 6.23.12 – Before heading out to Orion Music + More Festival I went over the line-up with my editor at Rolling Stone to see what bands they wanted coverage of.  Orion did a great job with trying to not overlap sets too much but at festivals this always happens.  So […]

PNC Bank Arts Center, Holmdel, NJ 7.27.11 – I’m no metal head.  But I am a fan of good music.  Mayhem put in front of me a large group of bands. Most I knew.  Some I had heard of but never heard and others I never heard of.  Trivium fell into the group of bands […]
