Barons of Hiddenhausen, is a mysterious and hidden secret, with it’s origins in Vienna.  Although the project sounds like a full-fledged band, the mastermind behind the project is one person: Moritz Kofler.  Kofler is no stranger to the genre – after he recorded “World Withdrawal,”  he collaborated with Digital Noise Academy in L.A., a project by Ken Andrews (Failure, Beck, A.P.C. NIN), Jordon Zadorozny (Blinker The Star, Courtney Love, Melissa Auf Der Maur) and others. That experience shows in this record.

Nowadays, you’ll find most Hard Rock bands trying to outdo one another by playing the same guitar riffs louder than each other. It’s an endless sea of Rock n Roll cliches and a lack of originality. Amazingly, Los Angeles natives Rooftop Revolutionaries have managed to rise above the noise and pose a unique brand of sound. 2013 is seeing the release of their new album, Resolute.

Neologism is often times associated with psychological disorders ; it is the symptom of inventing new words. With this in mind, I dove into The Neologist‘s album, The 26 Letters of Your Universe with intrigue. First off, I love the name and the title of the album. It’s creative and intellectual without being aloof. It has a metal edge but doesn’t hit you over the head with it, like Bloody Beast Kill or Cock Ring Corpse (yes, those were real names of metal bands when I was a kid).

I love my job. Not many people can say that. Why do I love it, you ask? I do nothing but listen to Earbits all day, which provides me some serious time to peruse the up and coming music that we are constantly adding. From Metal to Jazz, and everything in between, I am ever-impressed by the catalog that our music department is building. Frankly, it’s getting ridiculous.

I [email protected]’ Loved This Show  

by Scott Feldman,  Artist Relations Manager, Earbits, Inc.

I fuckin’ loved this show.

I was fortunate enough to catch the first stop on Mastodon’s headlining tour of the US last night at the Wiltern.  This tour is in support of their latest release, The Hunter, which is a 15-song masterpiece out on Reprise and in my opinion the best we’ve heard from them in years.  Mastodon did what was to be expected; played a tight, loud, heavy, unrelenting hour-long set to a packed and enthusiastic crowd.  Aside from watching a band like Mastodon, where it belongs, headlining a great venue, this is one of the most exciting hard rock/metal tours of the year, because of the incredible lineup that supports Mastodon.

I grew up in Sacramento listening to 93 Rock, which changed about midway through my hometown life to 98 Rock – same music, different spot on the dial.  93 Rock played Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, AC/DC, Skid Row, Poison, and the list goes on.  Now, to some extent, I imagine that most rock stations played this music then, but I guess what’s important to note is that 93 Rock leaned toward the heavier side of rock – playing things like Metallica and Megadeth far more often than Journey, for example, and not just the singles either.
