Holding Absence, Continents & Nightlives @ Clwb Ifor Bach
On Thursday, I was off to Clwb Ifor Bach to see Holding Absence at their sold out hometown show! I’m going to say now that the gig was insanely good! All bands smashed it and I really enjoyed myself. I went to the gig only knowing Holding Absence and Nightlives. I heard a lot of […]

SEASONS, Nineteen Fifty Eight & Montreux Fires – Live @ Fuel Rock Club, Cardiff | Review
I recently reviewed SEASONS’ new EP and today I was off to SEASONS’ first day of tour in Cardiff. Their were three bands on the line up these were Montreux Fires, SEASONS and Nineteen Fifty Eight.
SEASONS – ‘What Goes Around’ | EP Review
As a whole, this EP has been written amazingly from the catchy lyrics to the consistent and memorable drums beats which got me air-drumming for the whole day like any good song should. The melodic vocals and the strong backing vocals fit perfectly together and they are impressive. It’s pretty cool that a new band like this have released such a great EP after only being together a few months and I’m really enjoying their material and their songs are just extraordinary!
Balance and Composure’s new album ‘Light We Made’
As a whole the album comes together beautifully and it is a very well written album. From beginning to end, Jon’s vocals are very melodic which is a highlight in the album. The drum beats were strong and lively throughout the tracks. My favourite track on the album is definitely ‘Postcard’ purely based on the lyrics “we’re looking at the stars, connected by our constellations”.
Foes @ Fuel Rock Club, Cardiff. 24th October 2016 | Live Review
Finally FOES from Liverpool, took to the stage. I thought that this band would get a lot more faces in the crowd as it was their show but again it was mostly a few people and the other bands showing their support. Throughout every track Chris’ vocals were highlighted and his vocals were melodic and crisp. The lead vocals and the backing vocals blended naturally. The guitarist was very energetic and was moving about on stage quite a bit.
Say Yes release their new album ‘Real Life Trash Mag’ | Review
As a whole, this album has got a full bag of catchy lyrics with an unforgettable tune too that will have you singing it day in and day out. This album treads heavily in sarcasm and cynicism in between the lyrics. It seems that from the first track to the last track, the pace has been pulled back to create a nice light end to the album
We Review new album “Lifelines” by Hard rock Band “I Prevail”
I Prevail have released their new album titled “Lifelines” via Fearless Records. The one main thing I like about this band is the contrast between the melodic clean vocals and the gritty harsh vocals. Throughout every song the guitar riffs are heavy just like the harsh vocals. The drumbeats throughout are very catchy and the beats will either get you head-banging or air-drumming.
FingerTrap – Body Popping.
This track is definitely a song that will get the crowd dancing at shows. So if you got what it takes to Body pop or want to show off some dance moves. Your chance is at the end of the month, the guys in Finger trap have got a release show coming up on the 29th of October in Cardiff.
