REVIEW: Make Me Famous – It’s Now Or Never

Artist: Make Me Famous
Album: It’s Now Or Never
Genre: Hard Rock
Label: Sumerian

Sumerian Records recently signed Ukrainian natives Make Me Famous, and there has been quite a bit of buzz and hype surrounding the band.

Artist: Upon A Burning Body
Album: Red. White. Green.

It had to happen at some point I guess, and just like the resurgence of pop punk over the past few …
