After delving into concept albums for the ambitious two part House of Gold & Bones albums in 2012 and 2013, Stone Sour went in the opposite direction with a pair of enjoyable covers EPs (Meanwhile in Burbank… and Straight Outta Burbank) in 2015. So what direction did the band go with their sixth studio album, Hydrograd? It’s a more traditional album in terms of structure, and there’s plenty of variety.
When a band has been around for a while, sometimes they mellow out as they age, but that’s not the case with New Orleans veterans Goatwhore. Their brand of metal is as extreme as ever, evidenced on their latest slab of darkness, Vengeful Ascension. Twenty years into Goathwore’s career, frontman Ben Falgoust says they are still moving forward. “I think every song on this record is pretty f–king strong,” Falgoust says. “Each song is a representation of Goatwhore. from day one until now.
Iced Earth have been flying the flag for U.S. power metal since the ’80s. They’ve had countless lineup changes over the years, including vocalists such as Matt Barlow and Ripper Owens. The constant over the years has been founding guitarist Jon Schaffer. Their twelfth studio album Incorruptible brings another lineup shift, with Jake Dreyer (Witherfall, White Wizzard) coming aboard as lead guitarist. Current vocalist Stu Block has been with the band for a few albums now.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
