FAITH NO MORE: Hard Rock Heavyweights Very Sensible Option For ‘LOUDER THAN LIFE’ Music Festival

Daily Rock Report


By: Donnie Hardin

I had just posted a piece about my feelings for the band’s Deftones and Flaw to be looked at as possibilities to participate by organizers for this years Louder Than Life music festival,when an old, knowledgeable, musical enthusiast friend of mine, Christopher Mudd, chimed in with this bombshell of a suggestion, “Hey Donnie, while you’re at it, why not try to lure Faith No More to Louder Than Life?” I quietly thought to myself, “Yeah right! Who the hell am I anyway? Why me?” and within seconds of refusing to be beaten down by my own self doubt, I thought to myself, “Well, why the hell not try to lure Faith No More to this great event? I am the Louder Than Life audience, that’s who f**k I am!” As I am not one to shyly disappear when some outrageous challenge…

‘Louder Than Life’ Organizers: Seek Bands Such As DEFTONES, FLAW For This Years ‘LOUDER THAN LIFE’ Music Festival In Louisville, Kentucky

Daily Rock Report


By: Donnie Hardin

To: Danny Wimmer Presents, (promoters of festivals such as Rock On The Range, Louder Than Life)

I have been a Deftones fan ever since I saw the Southern California band open for KISS all the way back in 1996. The concert was at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky, a noisy, cracker box-shaped basketball arena built for the college basketball dominant Kentucky Wildcats, which was opened in 1976. It is a dreadful venue to see any kind of concert. It was built so that its basketball crowds were especially loud. Therefore, has terrible acoustics for loud music. Anyway, that did not matter when the energetic, fresh groundbreaking act known as ‘Deftones’ took the stage amongst a sold-out crowd. As a musician and fan, that day kinda of changed my life.

Deftones have not let up and have built a stellar career as hard rock / metal icons. So…

Exclusive Interview: A.D.D. Discusses New Album ‘CORE’, Individual Influences & Recipe For The Prefect Heavy/Melodic Original Blend

Daily Rock Report

By: Donnie Hardin

The Chicago-based band A.D.D. (which stands for Analog Digital Disorder) is a much needed breath of fresh air for the serious, mature and sometimes bored hard rock / metal enthusiast, such as myself. Having just recently released their second album, ‘CORE’ via Pavement Entertainment, A.D.D. is well on their way to making 2015 something very special not only for themselves but for their listeners.

The amazing and unique vocals of lead vocalist Matilda Moon, combined with very crafty, heavy, melodic, and emotional riffs are quite refreshingly organized and brilliantly arranged to compliment each other. The result: Musical brilliance. One listen to the song ‘I Regret’ and the listener knows. A.D.D. is serious about their music and every fiber of the bands collective being is as real as it gets. No gimmicks. Real talent. Real words. Real music. Real meaning.

It is an honor for me as…

Exclusive Interview: SATURATE Guitarist MIKE MEXAS Discusses The Writing Process, Touring & The Hard Work Involved

Daily Rock Report

By: Brooke Edgewater

   In 2005 the band Saturate was formed. Saturate’s unique sound was so diverse when they hit the Texas scene that they were described as being nothing less than “utterly raw and refreshingly original.‘  They won even more notoriety with lyrics that combined eloquent poetry to an amazingly sick riff. This alone, caused the band’s name to ripple from Texas all the way to Louisiana rapidly, as word continued to spread. Their debut album, Soul Element, was produced and released independently on August 19, 2008, only to rotate successfully around the country, gaining momentum from that point on.

 Soul Element was released in December of 2006, then re-released in 2008 through a distribution contract that put the album on shelves at Best Buy, Hot topic and other franchises. Their second album, in 2010, ‘The Point of No Return’ was released independently that summer. The first single off the sophomore album, Keep Digging, is provides a more upbeat groove…

Exclusive Interview: SEPULTURA Frontman DERRICK GREEN Talks About Bands New Single, Joining Sepultura

Daily Rock Report

By: Donnie Hardin

Sepultura long time vocalist Derrick Green needs no introduction to metal heads. Green took over vocal duties for the thrash metal legends in 1997 when the band parted ways with Max Cavalera. Derrick has proven over and over again that the band made the right decision after a two-week audition process. Going on eighteen years as the bands vocalist, Green has brought all the power, the angst, and the aggression any metal fan could desire.
I remember picking up a copy of his debut with Sepultura, 1998’s ‘Against‘. Having been a hardcore Sepultura fan I was curious and totally biased toward the vocals of Max Cavalera. But within the first weeks of owning the cd, I was sold. The band, I imagine, went through a similar process during his two-week audition when ultimately, they realized, Derrick Green was the guy.
Derrick kindly took…
