VRSTY have played around in the genre-bending arena with huge new album Welcome Home, to varying results.
Underoath return with Voyeurist, the successor to their huge comeback record Erase Me – and this record will please those dissatisfied with the last outing. Self-produced for the first time in their career, this is Underoath exactly as they envision themselves.
Calva Louise have amassed themselves tonnes of praise, high profile fans and a decent following. However, new EP Popurri is nowhere near as eclectic or unique as people would have you believe.
Three years ago, Code Orange put the entire scene on red alert with their third album Forever. It was seen as a game changer by many, and it is no coincidence that since that album, the hardcore genre has been at a creative peak. Now, following a long recording process that saw the band cancel an appearance at Bloodstock Festival, it’s time to see if the follow up lives up to it’s predecessor.
Danish RnB-Core band Siamese have just released their 5th studio album Super Human (3rd as Siamese, previously know as Siamese Fighting Fish) and is possibly the album of 2019. Admittedly, this may come across bias as I have been hooked on them since my first encounter as a support band for Dead By April a couple of years ago... But cast that aside, you need to check out this album!
For the last few years, in the tech-metal scene, there have been two titans on either side of The Pond: Tesseract and Periphery. Now when your transatlantic cousins take the ‘Black Album’ school of thought and trim everything down, tighten it all up and produce the shortened album of less expansive works that was Sonder, what do you do? Well, apparently, you mark your first release away from Sumerian records by throwing seemingly everything you can think of, and the kitchen sink, at your new record. And for Periphery, it is a resounding success.
I got sent this album and, frankly, it isn't my cup of tea. But the thing is, I go and see my dad's aunt a lot, and she puts way too much milk in the tea she makes me. That isn't my cup of tea either, but I swallow it and it hydrates me. That's exactly the feeling this record gives me. I must note, if you're thinking about listening because you like AFI...it isn't even slightly like AFI.
[Photo: William Pavli] The Black Queen put on a captivating show at Bush Hall. Despite touring their most recent record Infinite Games, they favoured their debut, Fever Daydream. While both records are equally as magnificent, it seems odd that the older record was favoured in such a way. Perhaps this was due to Fever Daydream […]

Irish electronica artist Feather Beds has revealed his new single Headache Dreams. The track is taken from his sophomore album Blooming, released late last year through Moderna Records. The visual is deeply disturbing if you suffer from coulrophobia (the posh word for a fear of clowns). No seriously, I’m going to have nightmares tonight! Check out Headache Dreams below;
Vol 1 EP sees The Ready Set returning with a record of Summer anthems that you can imagine yourself having on a summer playlist. No Halos has an odd electro instrumentation to kick the EP off with, it gives a bit of a trippy vibe but works well with the vocal melodies. It’s a track […]
