Saint Ridley is our Band of the Day

March 10, 2015

Today’s Band of the Day goes to a band we just saw for the first time in San Francisco opening for Coal Chamber at The Regency Ballroom. They are Saint Ridley and they were awesome. It was a shame that they had an opening time earlier than stated on the tickets because we talked to so many people who came in at the last song and were bummed they missed them. They were incredible. They delivered a straight up dose of hard rock/heavy metal with a Pantera vibe. In no way imitating, since this band definitely has their own signature sound for you to fall in love with. Their high energy set completely blew us away and we really look forward to their return to the Bay Area. Saint Ridley members: Paul Ridley: Vocals Matt Dalton: Guitar, Vocals David Flynn: Guitar, Vocals Cody Denis: Bass Rich Schlager: Drums Genre:  Rock/Metal Location: Detroit, Michigan Feature: Nice dose of heavy dark hard rock wrapped in fierce metal. Great energy and stage performance, Pantera vibe Music: Fool or a King available [Read More]

I Prevail is our Band of the Day

February 23, 2015

  Today’s Band of the Day goes to the fast rising post hardcore band I Prevail from Detroit. They have been garnering a lot of attention spanning the genres for their incredible cover of Taylor Swift’s Blank Space.  From the first time I heard it, I was blown away with how they completely did an amazing job at taking the pop song and making it their own. When asked why the band chose to cover “Blank Space,” drummer Lee  shares “I enjoy her music.  She is one of the most successful artists of our generation.  We hoped to reach a lot of people with our style of music together with her popularity.”  Lead guitarist Steve adds, “I think the success of our cover shows that a great song is a great song, no matter the genre or style.  We wanted to cover a song that had mass appeal and could reach beyond the rock, metal and hardcore world.  Beyond that, we honestly all like Taylor Swift.  You can call it a guilty pleasure, but she’s damn [Read More]

18th and Addison is our Band of the Day

February 6, 2015

Today’s Band of the Day goes to a 18th & Addison from Toms River, NJ. What began as an acoustic duo featuring Tom Kunzman who  was formerly in the band A Criminal Risk and DiBenedetto was one of MTV’s first recording artist with her band Just Kait (she is also the guitarist in the band What’s Eating Gilbert, the side project of Chad Gibert of New Found Glory) has since developed into a full live band. Together these two have come together and created their alternative rock sound cultivated from their influences of melodic rock, pop, punk and much more. They are capturing and bring back the honesty in music which is something so many bands strive for.  Kait explains,  “The goal for us has always been to push this music in a direction that neither one of us had ever attempted”. Since we’re both from two totally opposite ends of the musical spectrum, especially in our town’s music scene, that has come pretty easily to us. We now play live with a full band and the [Read More]
