Ceremony

Ceremony Announce New Album, Debut Somber New Tracks

Ceremony is was a hardcore punk band from Rohnert Park, California. Their last album, 2012′s Zoo marked a shift from their chaotic early sound into a more controlled post-punk direction.

While Zoo was still energetic and undeniably punk (not to mention excellent), the band’s just-announced follow-up The L-Shaped Man represents an even more drastic transformation into pure Joy Division worship. I suppose this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise considering the band named itself after New Order’s debut single. …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Monsters: Dark Continent’ Has Little To Do With Monsters

Film: Monsters: Dark Continent
Starring: Johnny Harris, Sam Keeley
Directed by: Tom Green

Taking place ten years after the events in Gareth Edwards’ Monsters and featuring an entirely different cast of characters in a completely different environment, Monsters: Dark Continent showcases another, far less thrilling side of cinematic universe expansion.

It opens with a soldier standing under a blazing sun while his narration tells us how the world has changed since the monsters arrived. Being a low class kid from Detroit, our hero was left with the option to either fight for his life or make the most of the …

Insurgent-Review

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Insurgent’ Is A Complete Disaster

Film: Insurgent
Starring: Shailene Woodley, Theo James
Directed by: Robert Schwentke

Coming off a film that seemed to exist solely for the purpose of setting up its sequel(s), Insurgent offers more of the same mediocrity the Divergent series has become synonymous with over the last year. It’s neither better nor worse than its predecessor. It simply is, and that is far from enough to hold viewer’s interest.

Picking up sometime after the events of the first film, Insurgent opens to find Tris, Four, and the others who fled the city taking shelter in the quiet community of Amity. It’s a …

‘Southpaw’ Trailer: Jake Gyllenhaal + Boxing = Box Office Gold

All great boxing movies have to start with the protagonist being or becoming an underdog. In the case of the Jake Gyllenhaal-led film Southpaw, it’s the latter.

Billy “The Great” Hope (Gyllenhaal) is the reigning Junior Middleweight Champion whose unorthodox stance, the so-called “Southpaw,” consists of an ineloquent, though brutal, display of offensive fighting. With a beautiful family, home and financial security, Billy is on top both in and out of the ring until a tragic accident leaves his wife dead and sends him into a downward spiral. This leads Billy to dabble in drugs and alcohol, which later …

Atreyu Share “So Others May Live,” Reclaim Their Heavy Crown

The return of Atreyu in 2014 came with a fresh wave of rumors regarding the group’s plans for the future. Some expected a 10-year tour for The Curse, while others thought the band would immediately hit the studio. The group ultimately chose to do neither, instead playing a string of shows across the US, but in 2015 they are planning to share a new record and earlier this week we heard what we believe is the album’s first single.

“So Others May Live” is a song written for and about the men and women currently fighting in the armed …

The music of Melbourne’s Ecca Vandal has the power to do all of this at once.…
