Wallows have kicked off the US leg of their world tour celebrating the release of their latest album, Tell Me That It’s Over. After their two first shows in Seattle and Vancouver, B.C, the band spent two sold-out nights in Portland at McMenamins’ Crystal Ballroom. Roaring cheers welcomed band members Dylan Minette (known for his […]

In their 2005 album that’s for the most part very radio-unfriendly, Mudvayne utilizes blasting guitar and drum beats to create a blend of heavy and nu metal sounds.
