Job for a Cowboy, Salt the Wound and Suicide Silence continue to grow this genre of death metal music. The entertainment is the next section that ought to be given a close look. Where did the name come from and what is the story?
The sound check is complete. Two guitarists churn out the crushing, muscular riffs and smatterings of upper register fills. They are joined by the drummer, who doubles the brutality with a flurry snare, cymbal and double kick. Supporting this sonic monster is a fluid, subtle bass. The vocals then enter, ramping up the intensity of the whole thing. Of Gods and Destroyers is upon you, and there can be no escape. Long after the hardcore kids punch and kick themselves out, they continue to deliver.
The signal-to-noise ratio measures how much of a pure signal (i.e. music) you hear through your speakers versus how much static (noise) can be heard. Obviously, you want more music than noise. You will typically pay more for amplifier that has a higher signal-to-noise ratio. This becomes more important if you listen to a lot of music that has quite spaces between passages. If you listen to a lot of death metal at high volume you might not even notice, whereas someone who listens to a lot of quiet classical music would notice right away.

Long Island is filled with opportunities to see your favorite bands or singers perform without having to take a train into the city. With venues like Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Tilles Center, and Nikon Jones Beach Theater, you have your pick of artists throughout the year. While going to a bar may not be your idea of fun, some are for more than just drinking. On select nights Mulcahys and the Nutty Irishman feature local bands playing original songs and covers of familiar tracks.
First up on the Jagermeister stage was the local Jager band Know Lyfe. They were also the first band to suffer from sound problems but they were still pretty impressive for a local opener.
I completely fell out of the scene, got married, had a child 5 years ago, divorced last summer and heard the call of the music again. I decided to launch Rivethead on FaceBook last June and went to find Joe Claytor to get his blessing.
They have never told me that it changed their life but I have had a good amount of fans say they love my music and think my CDs are great. That is a great feeling when a complete stranger come up to you at a show ans tell you that was the best show they have seen in a long time and then want to buy both CDs and all different shirt designs, it is crazy!
