Shallow Pools – Spring | EP Review

Shallow Pools are a Massachusetts-based trio made up of Jess Gromada (guitar), Glynnis Brennan (vocals, bass), and Ali Ajemian (drums). The pop rockers began their journey as a band by first performing acoustic covers in and amongst their hometown until the band decided to take a stab at songwriting under the moniker that came before Shallow Pools. It was this decision that was pivotal for these three close friends as they embarked on a sonical discovery of their identity and pieced together the well-oiled machine that would eventually become debut EP ‘Spring’.

Lotus Eater – Social Hazard | EP Review

Lotus Eater's new EP 'Social Hazard' is a 7 track fast paced angry extravaganza of biblical proportion. The song lengths are consistently short, which works far better for this metalcore outfit, especially from the point of view of someone who doesn't listen to the genre. And that's not because it's over fast. It's because it actually makes it feel accessible rather than overpowering. After reviewing I expected to find myself in a cold sweat, but in actual fact, I was only slightly too warm.

Climate of Fear – The Onset Of Eternal Darkness

Climate of Fear are an emerging talent from the UK who offer a new take on melodic death metal. The five piece have began to create quite a reputation for themselves combining a plethora of genres that ebb and flow between metal, beatdown and hardcore - forming a full arsenal of riffs, punishing vocals and ear shattering meltdowns.

Mastiff – Plague | ALBUM REVIEW

”A miserable band from a miserable town”. That is how Mastiff summarise themselves on their social media. I've never been to Hull, but if Mastiff are the aural representation of the town, then I'm not sure I want to visit. This is a band who specialise in brutality, whether that be when they utilise extreme pace or, more often, the thudding grinding groove that propels their particular brand of sludgy grinding heaviness.
