[Review from latest issue of HM]:

DOMINIC BALLI
AMERICAN DREAM
This dude knows how to chill to the max,
relaxing in a nice bass and organ-driven
groove, but he also knows how to throw in plenty of
world music sounds and crank up the energy with
smooth rock. He labels his style “CaliRockReggae”
and it fits. The lead-off title-track features Sonny
of P.O.D., who adds some nice spice that wasn’t
necessary. Balli had me at “Favela,” his rant on the
shanty towns in Brazil. [RED SONG] DOUG VAN PELT

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
