Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Bliss”

June 16, 2020 at 7:26 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Bliss” by Red Sun Rising.

Red Sun Rising is a band I’ve recently come across, even though they’ve been around since 2006. They were formed by high school classmates Mike Protech (vocals, guitar) and Ryan Williams (lead guitar) in Akron, Ohio. They signed their first record deal in 2014 and released Polyester Zeal which hit number 11 on the Billboard Hard Rock album chart. Two singles from that album each reached number 1 on the Mainstream Rock chart. They put out one other album in 2018, Thread, then went on indefinite hiatus in February this year.

Interestingly enough, the band changed their name to The Violent and released a new song last month called “Fly On the Wall.” In addition to their two studio albums, they have two independent albums which were released in 2010 and 2011, as well as three EP’s.

“Bliss” was off Polyester Zeal which featured Mike on vocals and guitar, Ryan Williams on lead guitar, Tyler Valendza on rhythm guitar, Ricky Miller on bass, and Pat Gerasia on drums. If you like that one, I also recommend “Worlds Away”, “Amnesia”, “Emotionless”, and “The Otherside.”

Retro Reviews: ‘Lords of the Sith’ by Paul S. Kemp

Lords of the Sith, by Paul S. Kemp, is the fourth adult novel released in the Star Wars canon in April of 2015.

To start with, this book has an extra special place in my heart, as it was the first Star Wars canon novel I read in December of 2015 (right when The Force Awakens came out) and I’ve been reading Star Wars books ever since.

Paul S. Kemp did a great job on this novel. His writing is exciting and scary and nerve wracking. I knew throughout the story that Vader and the Emperor were going to survive and be fine, but I found myself cheering for the Rebels and wishing and hoping that they would be successful. There were times where I bought into the excitement and thought that perhaps the Lords of the Sith would be taken down for good. Any author wants their audience to become immersed in the story, and Kemp absolutely nailed that here. Continue Reading Retro Reviews: ‘Lords of the Sith’ by Paul S. Kemp…
