New music that I must recommend!

Alright, I’m giving this new blog a shot and seeing how it turns out. I bought a few highly recommended new releases in the last couple of weeks and thought I would share them. Up first is Times Of Grace and their first release titled Hymn Of A Broken Man. This band consists of 2 members, Adam Duktiewicz and Jesse Leach. For those of you in the metal world you will recoginze Adam as the guitarist from Killswitch Engage, and Jesse was the original vocalist for Killswitch as well. This entire record was written over a span of about 4 years and culminates in one of the best releases to come out so far this year. You will not be dissappointed!

Next up is one of my favorite bands, Dropkick Murphys. These Bostonians always put out some of the best amped up Irish punk rock around! I love the bagpipes, the stories, the music and the comaraderie that has existed in this band for years. I am a huge Pogues fan, and these guys will carry The Pogues torch well into the next couple of decades. Good old Irish tunes of family, faith and social issues!

New band alert on Velvet Blue Music… Winter’s Fall is this awesome alt country/punky band with a killer sound and vocals that are unique and remind me of Neil Young on steroids! I love this band! I’ve only heard a couple of tunes but have ordered the CD and I am patiently waiting. Check them out at

  1. I have been looking forward to Winter’s Fall, too. I hope they put it out on vinyl – I usually wait for them to do that. Dropkick Murphys are always fun. I had never heard Times of Grace, but the song they have up their site is cool. Good stuff.

    That Upside Down Room album sounded interesting. Seems like a cool magazine. Check out my blog. It’s along similar lines as your zine.
