Triggerfinger is on board to be one of my favorite bands of 2013. They’ve been around since 1998, but this album, their debut album was only released in 2004. Apparently they weren’t picked up on and enjoyed in Belgium… I just got hooked on them from this song, which also was their first song to hit the Dutch charts:
However, they’re not really an acoustic band, though some of their top tracks on YouTube may convince you differently, being that they seem to all be acoustic performaces.

The band is three members from Belgium, Ruben Block plays guitar and sings, Paul Van Bruystegem who plays bass, and
Mario Goossens on the drums.

On top of this they are all over the music scene in both video and article reviews. Continue Reading →
The first track I heard of Head of the Herd blew my socks off, and so did the next track, and so did the one after that. This same pattern continued until I had exhausted everything I could find to listen to by these two guys, Neu and Clay.
Seriously, before I say anything further, go to their website and download their free CD, stuff like this doesn’t last long free. Continue Reading →
I was invited by a classmate to come check out his band, Kooznetz play the Tom Lee music space downtown Vancouver on Granville Street on Friday the 13th. A great evening for a metal show if I may say so myself!
