As I arrive to the venue, I find a queue zig-zagged, and stretched over a 10 minute walk away from the venue itself to find the end of it, like waiting for the opening of a huge festival, as my mind wonders how the hell all these people will fit in such a space. As […]
Southampton 5 piece Deference may be new to the metal game but they have already been making waves. Their latest EP, False Awakening, is set for release at the end of March and is sure to help continue with their rise and give people a taste of what to expect in the future. Revolving around […]
Thrash metallers Havok have been working on latest release Conformicide for the last three years and early reports from the released tracks suggest it is set to top 2013’s Unnatural Selection. Opening track F.P.C has a calm, atmospheric opening instrumental which is not something you’d expect in a thrash record. It honestly sounds like a […]
As Ryan Hamilton & The Traitors take to the stage in the unique church by day, venue by night atmosphere, he starts off by asking the familiar-faced crowd if he can say the F-word in a church, already having a fun time with the crowd. As Ryan opens with a solo acoustic / vocals, a […]
Catch Fire are releasing their sophomore EP, ‘A Love That I Still Miss’, on March 24th. The album kicks off with ‘Poise’, an instrumental full of delicate riffs. At this point, I don’t quite know what to expect from the band, but it’s quite a nice introduction to the album, and I’m happy to listen. […]
Temples have just released ‘Volcano’, the follow up to 2014’s Top-10 album, ‘Sun Structures’. ‘Volcano’ is a beautifully crafted 60’s psychedelic dream journey, and I am in love with every single song. Genuinely, the album is up there with my all time favourites. This album varies on psychedelia with elements of acoustic, rock, and pop, […]
Take Hawthorne Heights, throw in a mixture of You me at Six and Moose Blood (who doesn’t love that combination!) and what you get is A Will Away; Candy coated dark pop-punk. Opening with elegant guitar riffs and sugar sweet vocals ‘Here Again’, the albums namesake track is an extremely strong opening track, and […]
Canadian band Hollerado warm things up in the Brixton Academy as a stomping opener of a gritty rock band. As a band not overly familiar in the UK, noticeable by the lack of crowd singing along, they are sure to gather more of a fan base after this tour with a respectful crowd gradually getting […]
New Jersey rock band Can’t Swim will be releasing their newest album, Fail You Again, on the 10th of March. If you are curious to hear a bit of what this album has in store, there is a music video released for We Won’t Sleep. Both the music video and the track are very well […]

Opening the show are Caerphilly based melodic band Mudlark, who had already started by the time I got into the gig. They had a good sound but […]

Senses Fail have been producing incredible post-hardcore records for around 15 years now and decided to foray into the acoustic world. We had a listen to their first acoustic EP In Your Absence which is set for release on March 5, 2017. Opening track Jets To Peru is not really a strong track to […]
Closing their UK tour (following their release of their 3rd EP) in their home city of Leeds, I was extremely impressed with this band I’d never heard of previously. Not only have they become a confident outfit who look at ease on stage, lead singer Robbie Gillespie has an awesome, formidable vocal range. James Clegg […]

Managing to capture the angst and protest spirit of punk rock and blend it with hooks and melody more akin to the indie rock and power pop of the 90’s, Empty Lungs have an energy and determination second to none. Then again, when you grow up in Belfast, Northern Ireland at the tail end of […]
Touché Amoré displayed their brilliant version of emotive hardcore at their biggest ever London show, in front of a sold out Islington Academy. Touring in support of their sensational 2016 effort, “Stage Four”, the five piece proved why many consider them the best and forefront of the emotive hardcore scene. Unfortunately initially billed openers, UK […]
Within The Ruins have been making quite a name for themselves recently in the death-metal genre. With their 5th album release (and third via E1 Music record label) Halfway Human has expectations to reach. Let me give you a track by track review. Opening with a low beefy riff on Shape Shifter, with a classic […]
