A Conversation with Frankie Palmeri of Emmure

With the crest of a new album over the not so distant horizon, Emmure seeks to rally the troops and become a force that can't be ignored. With momentum building behind them, we sat down with outspoken vocalist and songwriter Frankie Palmeri to talk music, his band and general nerdery.
M.DREW: Let’s start at the top – what’s new on this record? What can long-time Emmure fans expect from this record?
FRANKIE PALMERI: “Eternal Enemies” is a big “fuck you” to everyone who has ever doubted us or has challenged us. This is the record that not only defines our band but I think defines us as people. It's also a true and passionate record that we made for our fans. Everyone else who isn't down with Emmure can go fuck themselves.

Horror Comics: Walking Dead #121

Publisher: IMAGE
Story: ROBERT KIRKMAN
Art: CHARLIE ADLARD, STEFANO GAUDIANO & CLIFF RATHBURN

The decision to celebrate ten years of the Walking Dead with a near bi-weekly roll out of a 12 issue story arc ("All Out War") has proven to be a double edged sword for readers. It seems like Kirkman and company are struggling to find an appropriate pace for the arc. While each issue has major developments and action (and nearly always features a major character death), it's feeling more and more like each issue could have been told in half the pages.

Album Review: Slough Feg - Digital Resistance

Slough Feg is one of those bands that I should love, but just never find myself listening to. Last year I reviewed three of their early albums as they were re-released by Metal Blade, and despite how much I enjoyed “Down Among The Deadmen”, I haven't found it in regular rotation. “Ape Uprising!” is my favorite Slough Feg record, but again, I don't find myself listening to it very often. I can't explain why, since every time I do, I'm reminded of how great a band Slough Feg can be.

Album Review: Hatriot - "Dawn of the New Centurion"

The common album cycle these days tends to run two or three years. A band composes a selection of music, rehearses it, perfects it, records it, masters it, markets it, releases it, tours on it. Probably twice. Wash, rinse, repeat.
