    Along with Ion Dissonance.

    Twilight got 3.5/5 stars, and so did Ion Dissonance.

    Not that this means anything. I just find it amusing.




    Here's their 4/5 star review of Deadboy and the Elephantman 'We Are Night Sky'

    They're a roots-punk duo with a boy on the guitar and a girl on drums, but Deadboy and the Elephantmen prove that they're no cut-rate White Stripes on their shadowy, bayou-meets-garage debut, We Are Night Sky. Fresh-scrubbed twenty-eight-year-old singer Dax Riggs is an Indiana boy with New Orleans dreams, weaned on whiskey and blues; his low Delta howl is the pretty, pained yelp of a wounded swamp animal. And unlike Meg White, Tessie Brunet, 23, is a powerhouse behind the drums. Riggs cribs a hot-and-bothered guitar line from Prince's "Kiss" on the sexy funeral stomp "Stop, I'm Already Dead." The addictive punk-blues explosion "Blood Music" fairly oozes with raw shimmy and shake. If rocking hard is a crime, Deadboy are headed straight for the electric chair.

    I tried finding the review online, but their website was going psycho on me. I might write it out later.

    They review "real" metal albums about once a year. They review Agorophobic Nosebleed a couple years ago (1/5 stars, btw).

    Fucking aye, how hard is it to come up with an original name? I can understand 2 bands with the same name. Oooops a little confusion. But a dozen? Wtf!?!?!??!

    :lol:

    I have been subscribed to that magazine for years, and I never remember paying for it. The movie reviews are the only redeeming thing. Their reporting is very left wing, but it is SOOOOO biased that it is actually very bad writing.

    It would help RS to do even the slightest fact checking. Ya think they'd be aware of Acid Bath and/or Agents of Oblivion, not to mention the PREVIOUS Deadboy and the Elephant Man album.

    Once they reviewed Cave In 'Antenna' and they referenced how great one of the songs was . . . only the song was on 'Jupiter'. They got some letters on that one.
