WEB EXCLUSIVE: New Danzig album a rebellion against popular metal

Misfits/Samhain founder Glenn Danzig ripped through a heavyweight set of songs at Albuquerque’s Midnight Rodeo Sunday, June 2nd.

Conceptions makes a literary comeback

A year ago, the production, support and existence of Conceptions Southwest was begging for help because it was about to drown. What could they do, rip up all of the back copies of Conceptions, make some type of floatation device with the remnants and pray to high hell that one of the only artistic/literary collections at UNM would be able to doggie paddle it back to safety?

The winds are blowing for lostprophets guitarist Mike Lewis. Actually they were blowing against him, as the 20-something Welshman's voice was often obscured by the rushing winds outside the Houston venue the band prepared to play last Wednesday.

Movies could make summer comeback

Let's face it: summer is the season of film ineptitude. We all have been bombarded by hoards of overproduced, under-acted and uninspired summer blockbusters such as last year's "Pearl Harbor" and "Planet of the Apes," only to wait until late fall when the studios released their surefire Oscar contenders in compensation. While this year's ilk seems to follow in tone and tenor of past summers, a few big names and titles will maybe salvage what many already consider a sunken movie season.
