The Cult's Electric 13 Tour In Chicago
I may have walked in seeking a peak from the past but I walked away with a vivid picture of the present and the Cult proved themselves to be more than a band looking back but one still willing to share verbal and musical allegories that penetrate not just your ears but obscured feelings as well.

Necronomicon - Rise of the Elder Ones
It's like stumbling upon Lovecraft's nameless city, only to find its mortifying race of reptilian monsters bickering about their favorite Kardashians and sporting Hoobastank merch. Disappointing? Yeah, a little.

Havok - Unnatural Selection
From whirlwind riffs to concrete-smashing grooves and even a cover tune cooked superbly, "Unnatural Selection" is a winner. They're a versatile bunch with a lot of performing power and chemistry

Damnation Angels - Bringer of Life
Damnation Angels proves itself to be a very diverse and talented faction throughout "Bringer of Light," musically driving home a point built upon power and purpose. In a world of shadows, they bring the light.

Rock Reads: Starting Your Career as a Musician and The Little Red Book of Musicians' Wisdom
One book focuses mostly on how to properly promote your band and your music and the other is a compendium of quotations uttered by musicians of all genres.

Road Trip: Down by the River- Frankfurt, Germany's Museum Embankment Festival
To really have fun and get to know Frankfurt you need to spend at least a long weekend and there's no better time to do so than during the Museum Embankment Festival, the city's end-of-summer celebration which is taking place this week!

Passport: Gondwana Dawn- Elemoto- Etienne Charles- Ana Alcaide
In this latest edition of Passport, Kevin Wierzbicki explores new music from across the globe including Gondwana Dawn, Elemoto's My Africa, Etienne Charles's Creole Soul and Ana Alcaide's La Cantiga Del Fuego

Rock Reads: Metallica: The Thrash Stash
The story of Metallica has been told many times before both in books and on film. Still, fans will find this book, another Metallica bio, a must-have. The band's history is here, from early '80s beginnings through to the poorly received 2011 Lulu collaboration with Lou Reed

Twelve Greatest Discoveries of Lollapalooza 2013
Every summer when Lollapalooza takes over downtown Chicago for a weekend over 150 acts perform. Some are well-established artists, but many take the side stages at the festival with big dreams and open hearts. The 2013 edition was eye opening for the confounding musical endowment I witnessed.

Doyle - Abominator
Doyle is the name of the new band anchored by former Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein and rounded out by Cancerslug vocalist Alex Story and the rhythm section of bassist "Left Hand" Graham Reaper and another former Misfits member, drummer Dr. CHUD.

Rock Reads: Teenage News - Issue No. 1
The first thing you need to know about this fanzine is that there is nothing in it about Justin Bieber, the Jonas Brothers, or other current acts that appeal to the teen and tweens. To the contrary, the idea behind this mag is to make readers of a certain age flashback to their teen years.

Quick Flicks: Iggy and the Stooges - A Tribute to Ron Asheton
Filmed at the Michigan Theater in the Stooges' hometown of Ann Arbor about two years after the 2009 death of Stooges guitarist Ron Asheton, this film presents both a typical Iggy Pop/Stooges show and a touching tribute to Asheton.

Roxanne Delage - The Way I Am
Roxanne Delage is a singer-songwriter from Cornwall, Ontario Canada and her latest CD, The Way I Am contains a strong set of songs that individually evoke a painter's pallet of moods and collectively fuel a great hour's worth of entertainment.

Lollapalooza 2013 Day Three
The 2013 edition of Lollapalooza ended this past Sunday but not before it set free another ten hours of eclectic alternative music. The perfect summer day allowed one to maximize their time between the stages. Here are antiMUSIC's twelve highlights from Sunday August 4th.

Road Trip: Loving the Llama (And Everything Else About Taos, New Mexico!)
You can really have some fun with your friends when they find out that you're just back from your visit to Taos, New Mexico. Before you regale them with details of your adventure, tell them that while you were in Taos you had lunch with a llama.

Lollapalooza 2013 Day Two
Saturday surpassed all of the other days in terms of musical performance. Several acts in their first Lollapalooza performances validated not just their spot at the festival but Lollapalooza's overall relevance in showcasing up and coming talent.

Rock Reads: Eric Clapton, Day by Day: The Early Years 1963- 1982
Clapton himself may or may not actually see this book but if he does he'll no doubt get a big kick out of it and so will the more fanatical of his fans. Day by Day is a chronicle of Clapton's professional life broken down by date and focusing on live performances and recording sessions.

Lollapalooza 2013 - Day One
For the ninth straight year, Lollapalooza has called Chicago home. Amidst the most beautiful skyline in the world and in a vast park with 80,000 of your closest friends, Lollapalooza has grown into more than weekend but possibly the defining music festival of the summer

Deep Purple - NOW What?!
Longtime Deep Purple fans may need a bit of time to warm up to NOW What?! but the album is a fine example of how a band can continue to evolve while also retaining familiar elements.

Quick Flicks: The Moody Blues
Here's a double dose of Moody Blues love for fans of this highly-influential prog band. The new DVD and CD releases Threshold of a Dream: Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970 and Live at Montreux 1991.

MorleyView Aerosmith
Morley speaks to Aerosmith's Tom Hamilton about their new live DVD, 'Rock for the Rising Sun', which is a documentary about the 2011's shows in Japan that took place after the earthquake and nuclear reactor leak and how concerned the band were about their safety.

Courtney Love Live
Walking up to a microphone with a cigarette in her hand, Courtney Love stepped in front, looked out onto the crowd and simply stated "hey" before she proceeded to pick up a Rickenbacker guitar to take the crowd into sensory overkill.

5 Stars: Aerosmith - Rock for the Rising Sun
Despite being advised not to go, Aerosmith went to Japan to tour shortly after that country's 2011 tsunami disaster and nuclear plant meltdown. Aerosmith rocks hard and fans should not hesitate to add this excellent show to their collection.

LeAnn Rimes - Spitfire
Despite the fact that she's had numerous country hits over the past decade, many still think of LeAnn Rimes as a pop singer thanks to her massive and evergreen hit "How Do I Live." But the 15-year-old girl that sang that song is now a young woman about to turn 31

Pearl Jam Live In Chicago
Pearl Jam performed Friday evening at Wrigley Field in Chicago debuting two new songs from their forthcoming "Lightning Bolt." The show was initially planned to stretch 40 songs however a thunderstorm made the band empty the fans on the field after only performing for 45-minutes.
