Burning down the House

Griffin House comes home By Christopher Schutte In an effort to maintain some scant amount of credibility, I should probably begin this piece by mentioning that I’ve known Griffin House since he was an up-and-coming junior golfer and I was a golf professional (true story). House was an affable, humble and talented kid back then, […]

Blood Ceremony Living with the Ancients (Rise Above/Metal Blade) Toronto-based quartet Blood Ceremony’s second album, Living with the Ancients, is chock full of bluesy, heavy, distorted 1960s-styled stoner rock featuring the reverb-heavy vocals of witchy chanteuse Alia O’Brien.  When the frontwoman isn’t singing, she’s either grinding the keys of a Hammond organ or playing the […]
