    Art is less concerned with clear borders or delimitation.

The artist (and this is no original thought, as reading any num…

    Linkin Park are pop now. With their last three tracks - “Heavy,’’ “Battle Symphony’’ and “Good Goodbye’’ - they are one step closer to becoming an all-out boyband. Even for a band who are hated by a significant portion of metal circles, the new tracks have incurred the wrath and…

  • Outrun the Sunlight – Red Bird
    Music is often about the mixing of elements.

This kind of melange also affords bands opportunities when they consider their own grown, apar…
