Interview: Sons Of Revelry

The description for Brampton, Ontario’s Sons Of Revelry is pretty enlightening.

“Imagine yourself at a Music Festival back in the 60′s. You are free, inspired and loving life. You can feel the warm relaxing sun on your face.
The cool breeze on your skin. You are in true bliss.”

There’s nothing I love more than hearing new bands, too. Sure, Uproar was a blast mainly because Godsmack and Escape the Fate brought down the house, but Sons Of Revelry is a name you need to remember. They won the Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands, which landed them a coveted spot on Uproar Festival this summer. When they won, the band wasn’t yet a year old – which is absolutely unheard of for a band just starting out.

I caught up with the band late in the day during Tampa’s Uproar date, and needless to say, this is a band I’m absolutely cheering for. Watch out.

My Top 15 Favorite Deftones Songs

deftonesrocketskates

If it’s a secret now, it won’t be anymore. It’s pretty obvious Deftones are my absolute favorite band, and they have been for many years. They’ve released 7 studio albums, starting with 1995′s ultra-aggressive Adrenaline, and their most recent album, 2012′s Koi No Yokan.

Many people have asked me, since I have a near-obsession with the band (I call it passion) what I’d choose for my 10 favorite Deftones songs. But I can’t choose only 10 – I’m going with 15. So, here goes. There’s at least one song from each of their 7 albums, as well. Check out the list after the jump.

Interview: Dale Stewart of Seether

We’re rolling out more of our Uproar Festival coverage from the weekend – and we’re stoked to bring you this latest interview with bassist Dale Stewart of Seether! Their new album, Isolate and Medicate, is out now, and if you happened to see them at Uproar Festival, you’ll know they’re one of the best bands to see live. Why, you ask? It’s simple. They get on stage, rock out, and then get off. No tricks or gimmicks to be found with them – releasing albums like Disclaimer and Karma And Effect have put them up on the top of the heap for years now.

You’ll want to check out the interview after the jump, as Dale and I spent 15 minutes talking about the new album, and their stage show, among other things. Special thanks to Dale for giving me some of his valuable time!
