Posted by on February 22, 2017

As if Adele’s 25 album wasn’t everywhere already after picking up every Grammy it was nominated for, now there’s a project called Re-Cover that’s taken it upon themselves to cover the entire album in a Warped Tour-like version of metal.

The sparse version, […]

Posted by on January 12, 2015

While they never really went away, Cleveland’s Mushroomhead haven’t always had a super high profile. Since 1999, they’ve roughly released an album only once every four years or so.
