Many bands hit a creative high that easily be pointed to in their careers. Brooklyn Punk outfit Rebelmatic appears to be on an upward trajectory that there is no coming down from. After the masterpiece that was Ghost in the Shadows, a follow-up was eagerly desired. However, it begged the question, how could they top that release? The answer?

“In all lanes, I’m trying to live in a higher state of consciousness through courage, acceptance, willingness, reason, and love.”
I recently dug in with New Wave of British Heavy Metal hero, and drummer, Malcolm Cope of Quartz. Among other things, we touch on the origins, trials, and tribulations of one of rock and metal music’s most underexposed bands, Quartz, new music, and more.
