Theatricality long has been a part of rock music, from KISS and Alice Cooper to Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson to newer acts such as In This Moment. September Mourning takes it a step further, with a stage show that is literally a comic book brought to life. The band has made some major strides recently, with performances at Rock on the Range in May (view our photos here) and the Download Festival in June, and there’s much more in store in the coming months. Live Metal’s Greg Maki recently caught up with September’s more human side to discuss this multimedia project. Read the rest of this entry »

The Live Metal moniker can pigeonhole us at times. Would I ever change it? No—I’m a metalhead and fucking proud of it. Metal is in my blood. But if you’ve been a reader of our site during its near decade of existence, you’re probably aware we’ve been known to branch out on occasion. Greg covers the Vans Warped Tour every summer, and I’ve always had a love of hardcore punk, along with a lot of ’90s alternative music. This may sound cliche, but it’s not about what’s trendy or being cool, or living up to some sort of imaginary underground status—good music is good music, no matter what the genre. Plus, when you’ve sat face to face with Behemoth, Megadeth, Max Cavalera and In Flames over the years (to name a few), I think I can be granted a little leeway here.
