There’s a certain experiential element to a Grandson gig. On Tuesday night, the No Apologies tour rolled into Hollywood, and he (otherwise known as Jordan Benjamin) and his band entertained a very excited and enthusiastic sold-out crowd at the Roxy that showed just how real the buzz surrounding this project is. Grandson has been working hard in recent years, releasing one-off singles and a pair of EPs that have earned some big-time attention and, lately, some play from KROQ in Los Angeles with the single “Apologize,” and it’s safe to say it’s working. Most of the shows on this tour…

Last Friday, March 29, the Los Angeles-based band released Intruder, its debut full-length album, via T-Boy Records and UMe. https://youtu.be/GRELSljo0fY A genre-defying sonic journey through indie rock with electronic-tinged industrial elements, Intruder is a singularly unique listen. The band — McJunkins, Friedl, vocalist Claire Acey and guitarist/keyboardist Nic Perez (also involved with Holy Wars, a new band featured on Rock Cellar in recent weeks) cover a lot of ground on this record, which was previewed with the…

It’s been 10 years since German industrial metal powerhouse Rammstein released a new record, but the band will do just that on May 17 — and on Thursday, the group roared back with a twisted, dark, chaotic and dramatic new video/short film for a song called “Deutschland.” The video, which is nearly ten minutes in length and was directed by Specter Berlin, earned the band some controversy earlier this week due to still images involving Holocaust imagery, which does show up about halfway into the clip. Musically, it’s about what we’ve come to expect from the band — dark, twisted…

On March 1, Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton released Anesthetic, his first foray into solo album territory. Featuring his signature heavy-as-hell guitar tone throughout the record, Morton was aided by a number of special guest vocalists, including the late Chester Bennington, who recorded the track “Cross Off” mere months before his passing in July 2017. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KdCEg7I8A0 With Lamb of God enjoying a bit of a break at the moment, Morton went out on the road for a U.S. tour supporting the album, and that tour crashed into the Roxy Theatre on the Sunset Strip earlier this week.

On Tuesday afternoon, Everclear front man Art Alexakis, the one consistent member of the Portland-based alt/rock band that hit it big in the 1990s and continues to be active to this day, announced that he’s dealing with a recent diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. Alexakis’ music with Everclear has always reflected a lot about his personal background and life experiences, so it’s no wonder he was so willing to open up and share something deeply personal such as this. He posted a lengthy message on the band’s website, to that effect: I want to tell you something about me that you…
