Built by the masters of loud rock 'n roll sound

They’re really just about amazing, high-fidelity, punch-you-in-the-gut sound in general.

No, today unearthed the discovery of early music from some say [...]


The Hood Internet’s latest mixtape dropped this morning, and as can be expected it’s packed to the cellophane with what one would dub party starting mashups. The Mixtape Volume Seven is what you wanna put on in that summer BBQ before the DJ’s get set up, or maybe what you wanna play when you’re trying to [...]

Metal revisions of AC/DC, Boston, Journey, Thin Lizzy & Rush
