Ceremony – Zoo Album Review

I’m going to say it right off the bat: anytime a hardcore band does something that isn’t the stereotypical hardcore sound, it gets automatically bumped up at least one full letter grade for ingenuity in its genre.

Bear In Heaven – Reflection Of You Music Video

Bear In Heaven go hyper warp-speed, a shade mustacheless, and definitely hi-resolution on their new video for “Reflection Of You,” directed by John Lee of the PFFR art collective. Is it obnoxious?
