Rajith writes mostly hardcore punk and heavy metal pieces for PopMatters.com and FasterLouder.com.au but he does like other things - folk music, for instance, some Indie/alternative, perhaps? He is also quite serious about fiction and is hellbent on writing a novel, so keep an eye out for it but don’t hold your breath because Rajith also likes to take his time.

The Bakerton Group: El Rojo

While the songs stand up without the aid of Fallon’s gravelly sermons, they just don’t pack the same wallop. Wait for the new Clutch, it’s just around the corner.

Van Morrison: Astral Weeks Live at the Hollywood Bowl

Perhaps this burdened generation will find some of the hope they are desperately seeking in this reconstruction of a classic record.

A fine example of the fearsome Motörhead-meets-High on Fire groove of these scene veterans.

Unearth: The March

As flagbearers of the movement, Unearth exhibit all the unchanging symptoms of a plague that finds metalcore quarantined within its confines.
