Photos by Steve Walter. On a random Tuesday night in New Haven, my friend Steve and I walked through a sleepy, closed college town and turned a corner straight into the un-relenting force of doom. Headlining the Decibel Magazine tour at Toad’s Place, Cannibal Corpse was the main attraction of over four hours of double… Continue reading We Were There: Cannibal Corpse in New Haven
JW’s Asian Extravaganza
Milford, Connecticut is overflowing with Asian cuisine. For such a tiny town, there’s some version of a Chinese/Japanese/Thai place every half mile, to the point where it’s starting to get weird. For this piece I’m just centering on just one immediate area: the JW-carved out range between the CT Post Mall and Milford Marketplace (Whole… Continue reading JW’s Asian Extravaganza
Interview: Burton C. Bell of Fear Factory
Fear Factory has been making complex, challenging, industrial-tinged metal for over two decades now.

Restaurant Review: Parallel Post
Today I’m here to tell you about a place you probably never knew existed. A restaurant that specializes in seasonal, local, farm to table American cuisine that is high end in quality and mid-range in price, looks beautiful inside, and would be a great place to take someone you like. Parallel Post is the brand… Continue reading Restaurant Review: Parallel Post
Review: I Want My MTV
For those of you that have forgotten or are too young to remember, MTV (formerly Music Television; they changed it to MTV a few years ago) was a network consisting almost solely of music videos, music-related programming, and not much else. As the many, many articles and documentaries about MTV have shown, people liked this… Continue reading Review: I Want My MTV
