High Signs – A Much Larger Ocean (?) The sudden and shocking rasp of vocalist Sam Hargrove from Toronto’s High Signs is more than enough to wake you from a slumber.

Album Review: Danzig – Black Laden Crown

Philip Cosores Album Reviews, gothic metal, hardcore, metal, punk, Punk News, Reviews 0 Comments

It’s hard for a dark ‘n’ heavy rock star to maintain a suitable patina of evil when viral internet memes picture him in a supermarket parking lot carrying kitty litter to his Jaguar.
