A is for Australia, AC/DC…and Airbourne

Is it just me, or is this band the heir apparent to AC/DC? I have to admit when I saw the over-the-top, rock-star-posturing photos, I almost thought this was a parody. Ah sure, they sound an awful lot like Brian Johnson-era AC/DC
, but hell, most of AC/DC's songs sound a lot alike too, and we don't mind because they kick ass, and it looks like these guys do, too.

I wanna party with these guys. For real.

I have a feeling Airbourne
is a band one needs to see live. If you are Canadian, you can catch them opening for Motley Crue till Feb 5.

Wanna be featured on this blog?

There are several ways to get my attention, and some of them don't even involve blood, gore or sacrificing your first born.

A) If you are a label or PR agency, add me to your mailing list. For individual bands, this could get a bit overwhelming, so larger entities representing multiple artists only please. Unless say, you're Rob Zombie or something. Rob, you can feel free to email me to your heart's content.

B) See that little gray "dropbox" on the right? Use it to send me tracks or albums to feature on the blog and possibly be reviewed (full length cds/eps only for review)

C) Send me the actual cds for review

D) Send me your films to review

E) Send me cool memorabilia, music, dvds or tickets to give away

That's not so hard right? Right!

My Alexa rank* is dropping faster than a virgin's panties on prom night, so get in at the ground level before this sucker makes it big.

Calabrese video for “The Graves,” opening this weekend

This is horror punks Calabrese’s video for the film “The Graves” opening this weekend as part of the 8 Films to Die For series. The film and the video are directed by Brian Pulido. Check it out:

And if you love the brothers Calabrese
(and how can you not?) they are pre-ordering for their new album, “Calabrese III: They Call Us Death.” The pre-order includes a set of about the coolest postcards of the guys I have ever seen.

These are only available as pre-order! And the guys are getting ready to come cross country, where they are even making a stop here in Detroit at Small’s in Hamtramck, March 30. Seriously, this is a must see show and a rare appearance in these parts. Come out and support them so they keep coming back! And preorder the album:
