The Metro, Chicago, IL – Saturday, 09/30/2017
 
ColdWaves VI

 

The waves of cold air continued to flow through the Windy City on this sunny Saturday evening of September 30, beginning the second of three nights of ColdWaves VI. One of the many heartening aspects of this particular gathering of the industrial music scene is not only the diversity of music but that of the crowd as well; fans of experimental and atmospheric industrial and exploratory sound mingle with those that prefer melodic and lyrical expression or even the more primal urges to simply move one’s feet and shake one’s fists on the dance floor. With this year spanning three nights and offering the largest and one of the most varied artist rosters ever, ColdWaves is an opportunity not just for musical discovery but also for friends old and new to share in this industrial community [..]

ColdWaves VI

 

Five years after the departure of Jamie Duffy, the sixth entry in the Chicago ColdWaves event perhaps bore some of the deepest scars in the fight against depression and suicide. As ReGen associate John Galope had stated in the Digressions podcast, “dark music for people with dark thoughts,” more than adequately describing the varying styles of industrial, goth, electro that encompass this music scene.

Baltimore Soundstage, Baltimore, MD – 08/17/2017

 

With two Gold albums and several hit singles that dominated radio and MTV in the late ’90s, Stabbing Westward holds a special place in the memories of many an industrial and alternative rock fan from that era. Vulnerability and aggression in equal doses, the band’s songs played as soundtrack to all the heartache and turmoil of anyone who felt the weight of emotional collapse. Since disbanding in 2002, the band members had gone on to other creative pursuits, with keyboardist Walter Flakus joining vocalist Christopher Hall’s band The Dreaming in 2015. In 2016, with the return of guitarist Marcus Eliopulos and touring drummer Johnny Haro, Stabbing Westward’s spark had been reignited [..]

Stabbing Westward - live in Philadelphia by Katherine Gaines

 

Stabbing Westward is a band that needs no introduction – spearheaded by front man Christopher Hall and keyboardist Walter Flakus, Stabbing Westward’s music was an aggressive blend of grating alternative metal riffs with scathing melodies, propelling the band to become one of the prominent figures in ’90s alternative and industrial/rock.

Bar XIII, Wilmington, DE – 07/08/2017
 
I Love Industrial 2017-07-08

 

Standing on the outskirts of Wilmington, DE on Philadelphia Pike, Bar XIII may not be the largest venue one would expect to see and hear some of the most raucous and ravishing bands in the industrial music scene, but it has proven to be one of the most reliable. On the warm Saturday night of July 8, 2017, the venue continued its tradition of original music, strange people, and craft beer with the I Love Industrial night – presented and hosted by eminent scene DJs Mike Saga and Elijvh Vrms to keep the bass and the beats pumping, this night was a special presentation of not only three of the surrounding local scene’s hardest hitting industrial/metal acts, but also showcased a headlining performance from Los Angeles powerhouse 3TEETH!
