The metal/ dance/ J-pop fusion phenomenon, BABYMETAL, are back, releasing a live album of their first ever UK arena show. BABYMETAL has come so far in a relatively short space of time, doing well for their 17/18 ages. They’re a band I’ve wanted to see live for a while now, as so much goes into their live […]

Tirade – Self Titled EP

Bowling For Soup – Drunk Dynasty

  For many years, there have been comedy bands. Weird Al Yankavich, Steel Panther, Spinal Tap, Tenacious D and the likes have left us chortling away whilst also delivering some truly kick-ass tunes, yet each of these acts share one huge part of what makes them who they are. All of them are a parody […]

Nervus – Permanent Rainbow

  The more I listen to this album, the more I enjoy it all, and the more it invades your mind. It’s easy listening, radio friendly, feel good Indie Rock music. It’s almost like modern day Indie and punk rock from the Naughties had a musical baby. The major tonality throughout the album is very […]

Face Your Maker – Ego: Death

Face Your Maker are a new American deathmetal/deathcore band on the scene with their debut album Ego: Death. Despite this being a hard area to come into in music with other huge bands like Traitors, Black Tongue, and Gift Giver, they have absolutely destroyed it coming in with strong lows and ferocious highs. This is […]

Camel Of Doom- Terrestrial | Review

British Doom metal band, Camel Of Doom are unveiling their record Terrestrial to the world on the 2nd of December and it’s certainly not something you’ll get the hump with. Camel and extra-terrestrial/ out-of-this-world puns aside, the band’s fourth album does not disappoint. This doom metal record certainly does not spell doom for the band […]

Hello Bear – I Don’t Know…It’s Fun Though, isn’t it?

“I Don’t Know… It’s Fun Though, isn’t it?” Well, I’ll say! I was given the chance to review Hello Bear’s New EP and what a wonderful opportunity it was! The EP is four tracks that are full of so much life! Giving the listener flashbacks to when pop punk first surfaced, with the lyrics on […]

Guttermouth – New Car Smell

The Huntington beach bad boys, Guttermouth are back with latest EP, New Car Smell. The follow up to ‘Got It Made’. ‘Got It Made’ was their first release of new tracks in 10 years. That was in July. Now a few months down the line the Punk southerners are back with six heavy, fast and loud tracks.

Lamb of God – The Duke | EP Review

Lamb of God are releasing new EP The Duke on November 18. The record’s title track is inspired by a fan’s battle with leukaemia. The band are also providing memorabilia for a charity campaign with all proceeds going to benefit the Leukaemia and Lymphoma society. With that in mind let’s have a listen to the EP.

Beyond Recall – Selfish Scars

Bristol alternative trio Beyond Recall have been winning the hearts of fans and media alike with their down to earth attitude, professionalism and not to mention fresh blend of rock, hip-hop and massive melodies (if you think of Twenty One Pilots but about 10000000x better, you may be on the scale of these guys!) January 13, 2017, sees the trio release their latest EP Selfish Scars and this is what I thought of it.

The Vigil – Save Our Souls

Bristol rockers The Vigil are set to release debut album Save Our Souls on November 25. The band have supported the likes of Puddle of Mud, Therapy? and more and the record was produced by Bush’s Nigel Pulsford (are you getting the same awesome feeling that I am?).
