PUNGENT STENCH - Ampeauty

By Brendan O'Flaherty - Catatonia Shall Prevail - 02/22/2005

Over a decade ago, when death metal as a genre was in desperate need of something fresh and original, Pungent Stench provided something simultaneously brutal, fast, funny, sick, perverted and groovy to enthrall us with. Well, the perverted Austrians are at it again and they continue to excel at conceiving art that’s both sick and fetishistic with this new platter of sludgy death n’ roll, cleverly titled Ampeauty.


THE WEAKERTHANS + The Constantines + guests @ Cabaret


By Mikaela - Lessons in Lo-Fi - 03/30/2005

I’ll begin by stating that due to unforeseen circumstances -- as in, I didn’t feel like going -- I missed the first two opening bands for the Constantines/Weakerthans show. I can only comment on their participation in the after-show sing-along, which I shall do later.


TOOTS AND THE MAYTALS + Cutti @ Club Soda

By Tim R - Scarboro Sessions - 03/23/2005

Credited with coining the term Reggae as well as helping to shape its sound during the 60's in Jamaica, Toots and the Maytals are one of the most recognizable names in music today. On this Wednesday night, they would take to the stage at Club Soda.

EPITAPH RECORDS TOUR: Matchbook Romance + others @ Club Soda

By Mikey B - The Lonesome Stranger - 03/11/2005

Ahhh Epitaph Records… what great bands, albums & tours you’ve given us over the years. Remember when Epitaph Records meant Bad Religion, Pennywise and Rancid? This was the label that put out the Offspring’s Smash in ’94, making it the best-selling indie release of all time! And heck, I bet most of you have at least one Punk-O-Rama album in your CD collection. This is the Epitaph Records that I know; Punk as Fuck, and they always will be.


KREATOR - Enemy Of God

By Korgull The Destroyer - Metal for Supper - The Afternoon Edition - 01/11/2005

Kreator seem to have given up on experimenting with their sound and have once again opted for the straightforward thrash metal style that they are known for. You can decide for yourself if this is a good thing or not, but bottom line is that it worked very well for them on Violent Revolution and it has worked for them once again with their latest album, Enemy of God.
