Geoff Barone- The Grim

One of Western New York’s most experimental and diverse artists Geoff Barone is taking yet another twist into his impressive library of music October 23rd releasing “The Grim”. What drew me in a few years ago with his release two years ago “Acquiscence” is exactly that. His cinematic […]

Turning Virtue- Beautiful

One of Buffalo’s best kept secrets prog rockers Turning Virtue is releasing their landmark album “Beautiful” tomorrow September 4th.  The band came back onto the local music scene with a vengeance with “A Temporary Human Experience” in 2016.  There were previous incarnations in the 1990’s and ATHE was the band’s […]

Dave’s Best of 2018 Awards!

Hello folks! I am back with my second “Best Of” Awards article…..but with more sections to spice things up. Newcomer Vick wrote hers and I’m here with my valued or unvalued opinion with some possible bias. The numbers aren’t important in my article I DO NOT RANK I just list […]

Buffalo’s fine tech death/prog/experimental trio INERTIA has released a fucking monstrous full length that isn’t Weaponex. Both bands have released my two favorite offerings this year from Buffalo bands and shit is it a treat.  Let’s dive balls deep into this wild […]
