Silver Spring, MD, The Fillmore, 04/30/2013
While many may lament the shift in Trent Reznor’s emphasis away from the harder edge and abrasive sounds of Nine Inch Nails toward the more melancholy and lush ambience of How to Destroy Angels, it can’t be denied that the act has garnered a significant amount of acclaim. Blending angelic melodies courtesy of vocalist Mariqueen Maandig (and sometimes Reznor), backed by the noisy constructions of Reznor, Atticus Ross, Rob Sheridan, and live member Alessandro Cortini, How to Destroy Angels may not be as angry as Nine Inch Nails, but is no less compelling in its artistry and musical intrigue.

Here, END: the DJ unveils his Top 10 choices for new music for the month of July, 2013!
New wave, no wave, old wave, fuck off! In the ’90s, the machines placed their indelible stamp on underground rock music, the noise of industrial took over, and the vicious onslaught of coldwave began! Among the many proponents of this style was a Chicago entity called Acumen – later to become Acumen Nation, founded by Jason Novak and which later branched off to become a prominent figure in the throngs of American industrial music [..]
Atlanta, GA, The Loft, 05/04/2013
On May 4, the Alternative arrived in Atlanta as IAMX reached the halfway point of the band’s North American Animal
Impulses tour. Fans of all styles and types and ages – as young as 8, as old as mid-80’s – circled the Loft in anticipation, slowly filing in to the darkened midtown venue as the 8:00pm start time approached. This night’s show was IAMX alone with no opening acts to tease and prolong the audience, so the excitement was high. Fans from all across the Southeast crowded the stage, waiting eagerly for the show to begin. [..]
Atlanta, GA, The Masquerade, 03/13/2013
If you were to tell this author that Orgy was going on tour before 2013, he wouldn’t believe you. The alternative metal/death pop band from the mid ‘90s split over half a decade ago, with half the band forming the currently-touring Julien-K. But many also wouldn’t have believed that the band would release new content after so long, which is what happened with “Grime of the Century” in 2012. And now, Orgy has surprised the fans yet again with leader Jay Gordon bringing in members of Deadsy, RunRunRun, and TheStart to re-launch the band and the Wide Awake and Dead
2013 U.S. tour, featuring supporting acts Vampires Everywhere! and Davey Suicide. Despite the long absence of the decade-plus-old band, the Masquerade in Atlanta saw quite the turnout for the three band night, from the mid-teens to the mid-30’s. [..]
