Lower Than Atlantis – Safe In Sound

Lower Than Atlantis have some great feats in their name, dominating the scene here in the UK. With a decade of writing together, bashing out 4 full albums in the course of 4 years, this 3 year gap may be just what the guys needed to give the fans something worth waiting for. So here […]

Short Stories – Valhalla

They are set to release EP Valhalla (named after the studio it was […]

Riviere – Heal

Riviere are a French metal band who have recently released their new album. This is quite a well made album with good clean vocals, good instrumentals and pretty good vibes. Although it’s not very heavy or metal in my opinion, they still deliver a pretty well made record. Their first song on the album, New […]

Galactic Empire – Galactic Empire

When most people think of Star Wars they think of sci-fi loving nerds, some light sabers or that video of a woman enjoying her Chewbacca mask a little too much. Turns out what we all should have been thinking all along was rock music. Galactic Empire are here with their self titled debut album to […]

Auto Immune- Self Titled

Darlington based alt-rockers Auto Immune present to you their latest, self titled release. At three songs, the EP is kept short and sweet, although sweet seems the wrong word to describe the band’s sound. This record features heavy guitars and fierce vocals that storm through each track in impressive fashion. The EP starts out with […]

Less Than Jake – Sound the Alarm

Sound The Alarm is the 9th EP from the […]

Belial – Nihil Est

Belial have released an album under the name “Nihil Est”, with an amazingly mysterious album cover. A broken light bulb hangs from the ceiling of what looks like caves. Faces can be made out in the rocks, or it can be the mind playing tricks. Who knows, but it’s truly intriguing. The opening track begins […]

T.S.O.L. – Trigger Complex

80’s T.S.O.L. are back with a new album, ‘Trigger Complex’. The punks still have it at their mid-50’s, and this album is a welcomed throwback to everything from 60’s grooves to 90’s post-punk. The album begins with ‘Give Me More’, which was a cracking start, and I did want more. At 2:17, this song reminded me […]

BarCreeps – Eponymous

Heard the 90’s punk rock song’s a million times? Looking for something still in touch with that raw yet nostalgic sound? Then look no further, BarCreeps are here to make you want to dust off the skateboard in your shed and cruise around the streets causing havoc. Or, reminisce the childhood soundtrack of Tony Hawks […]

Kilkovec- Plunge

When I received this EP to review and looked through the band’s influences I was intrigued after two words, Brand New. Hampshire’s self proclaimed ‘Altpunx’, Kilkovec drop their latest EP ‘Plunge’ on the 27th of January and from the first listen I knew I’d love it. As previously mentioned, Kilkovec draw influence from bands such […]

Retro Youth – B.R.A.V.E
