After two years of rumours that a secret new Glassjaw album was in the works (and following the band's live performance of fragments of the record following the departure of longtime bassist Manuel Carrero and drummer Durijah Lang in 2015) the band have finally returned with Material Control, their first album in 15 years.Daryl Palumbo demonstrates a wide vocal range throughout the new record, switching between an aggressive yet melodic delivery and a more sombre, heart-wrenching clean approach.
The latest record from metalcore pioneers Converge is a raw, merciless slab of feedback-charged intensity that sees the band doing what they do best — balancing atmospheric melodies with extreme aggression. Nine records and nearly three decades into their career, the band are still creating invigorating material that inspires countless artists emerging from various hardcore scenes. Guitarist Kurt Ballou talked to Exclaim!
Raw, aggressive and unrelenting; for nearly three decades now, that has been the path that metalcore pioneers Converge have followed, and on their ninth studio album, The Dusk in Us, the band have forged yet another sonic trail of ultra-violent hardcore and atmospheric sludge.From the first moments of the album to the final notes of closing track "Reptilian," The Dusk in Us is an emotionally and politically charged record.
I love seeing all of the pissy older folks on CBC comment sections complaining that “all rap is crap.” Sure thing Sandra, you are the epitome of musical taste and are far superior to everyone else because you listen to The Beatles
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
