Gem – Hexed – Review

December 1, 1995

Gem are the all-star game of Ohio indie rock, with members of Cobra Verde, Prisonshake, and Death of Samantha. Hexed shines more often than not.

Wicker Man – Review

December 1, 1995

If Henry Rollins sang for White Zombie, and they were less industrial, it would sound like this.

Download – Furnace – Review

December 1, 1995

Furnace is sinister, menacing, and not afraid to grab your neck and hurl you through a window of perception in hopes that you’ll cut your line of sight.

Dogmatics – 1981-86 – Review

December 1, 1995

Dogmatics were like a more laid-back Doggy Style, with an obvious, albeit slowed-down Ramones’ influence. It’s difficult to believe they spawned Smackmelon.

Doc Hopper – Ask Your Mom – Review

December 1, 1995

Doc Hopper is a punk band that plays infectious, feel-good songs exploding with energy, wit, melody, and harmony. Much like the first few All albums.

D.O.A. – The Black Spot – Review

December 1, 1995

Energetic, political, tongue-in-cheek hardcore punk that we’ve come to expect. They’ve been coasting since the mid-’80s. Don’t waste your time on this one.

Rancid – at The Strand – Review

December 1, 1995

When Rancid play, it’s pure magic. Their presence is overwhelming and the energy is consuming. Tim is an angel on stage, so vulnerable, yet powerful.
