101 Word Reviews: Critics – All I Wanna Know

Fans of Panic At The Disco rejoice, because this one is made for you! All I Wanna Know, the debut single from up-coming EP ‘Spilt Milk‘ by self-proclaimed ‘Dirt-Pop’ outfit Critics, is a blast of synths, guitars and harmonies to create a split between feel good fun times and an altogether more sinister tone. A […]

Miraculous Mule – Two Tonne Testimony

Miraculous Mule are back with their second album: Two Tonne Testimony. The 10-track album mixes blues, gospel driven rock n roll, psychedelia, and stoner rock to create something great. It was written over the last two years, and if you like anything from The Black Keys, to Tame Impala, to Creeper, even, you’ll probably enjoy this. […]

Homebound – The Mould You Build Yourself Around

Homebound are not the band I would usually listen to, labelling themselves as UK pop punk, much like a slightly heavier early Blink 182, but to my surprise I was impressed with the overall quality of the EP, mostly the melody and lyrics in the songs and I can now see why they have a good […]

Selina Fever – The Monachopsis King

This Alternative-Folk release is beautifully crafted, evolving the voice into an instrument in its own right, a dream like texture flowing through Americana guitar lines and emotive lyrics. The distinct production effects on the vocals means that you have to really focus to actually understand the words and not just ‘hear’ the sounds. Concentrating on […]

Vitja – Digital Love

Vitja is the Russian equivalent of Victor, which means winner and it seems like Vitja are on to a winner here! The German quartet are set to release album Digital Love on Friday March 3, 2017 and we got a chance to listen to it. SCUM kicks the album off with a nice riff which […]

Youth In Revolt – The Broken – track by track review

New Jersey post-hardcore quintet Youth In Revolt are finally releasing their highly anticipated debut album the Broken on Friday February 17, 2017. The first record with the new line-up has already had some rave reviews from the likes of AltPress and Rock Sound and fans have been loving singles The Broken, Not Giving Up and […]

Once Human – Evolution

Female fronted metal bands are rather cool aren’t they? They’ve been around for as long as metal has been a thing, but the modern day seems to be bringing a metric shit-tonne of incredible new ladies to the front of the heavier, chuggier side of music, with the likes of Butcher Babies and New Years […]

All Them Witches- Sleeping Through The War

For those who haven’t heard All Them Witches before I’ll try to describe them in one word. Magical. They’re magical, enchanting even, and quite unlike many bands out there. 2012’s Our Mother Electricity and 2014’s Lightning At The Door will give you a better idea of the bands sound than writing ever could. The band […]

THE FINAL CLAUSE OF TACITUS – PEACE IN CHAOS

Peace In Chaos is the newest EP from The Final Clause of Tacitus, due to be released on February 24th. It has a cool title, cool cover art, all that’s left is the music. The first track is 7 Years. Right away, this catchy track will get your head nodding. That, and it has a […]

Decade – Pleasantries

Decade are back with new album, ‘Pleasantries’. It’s more than pleasant, and takes their music to another level from their debut album in 2014, ‘Good Luck’. Decade have done extremely well to create a new sound which isn’t really anywhere else, by combining a rage of sounds which are already in the mainstream. If you’re […]

Ghost Iris – Blind World

Ghost Iris are set to release Blind World on February 17. The Danish prog metallers were one of the most streamed Danish metal acts of 2016 and have come a long way since their formation in 2015, with this being their second record and they’ve toured Europe twice! The increasing volume of the atmospheric first […]

Hometruths – Open Your Eyes

Brit hardcore/metallers Hometruths are set to release their debut EP Open Your Eyes on March 3rd. In 2016, they garnered attention after posting defaced images of their most despised icons including President Donald Trump, across several UK cities. We got our hands on the EP to let you know what you can expect form the […]

The four piece comprises of vastly experienced musicians, who have experience touring and playing with bands from all aspects of rock music. This project however is an ambient post-rock effort. The 5 songs on this LP provide what appears to […]

Miami Monroe – Miami Monroe

Hailing from Glasgow, a pop-punk quintet named Miami Monroe have stepped forward to provide you with an EP that you shouldn’t cast aside. As an epic Intro starts off the EP, you are not sure what to expect, with a repeated guitar lead, as it slowly builds up, as if you are about to start […]
