Vicki’s Albums of the Year 2023

There were so many albums and EPs released throughout 2023 that we’ve loved here at AltCorner. So we asked our team to let us know what their favourite albums or EPs that were released in 2023. Here writer and photographer Vicki narrows down her top picks!

Aiko – Fortune’s Child

Aiko's Fortune's Child was released Friday 13th October, a day that is meant to be bad luck. I feel like it was unlucky that it took me nearly two months to find the time to listen. 

Grip-Like Vice – Place//Circumstance

Grip-Like Vice released debut album Place//Circumstance in June. The album was written over a three-year period.

As Everything Unfolds – Ultraviolet (Review)

As Everything Unfolds released their second album Ultraviolet not too long ago.

Halestorm, In This Moment and New Years Day @ Motorpoint Arena Nottingham

To see Halestorm announcing a UK arena tour just a year after playing much smaller venues was a shock, and it meant they’d for sure have to be bringing some heavy hitters with them. These came in the form of In This Moment and New Years Day, who have both commanded a mass following for many years, but also bring something much different to the table both musically and in the performance of said music.

MGT – Gemini Nyte

Personally, I think that nobody has done Gothic Rock quite like HIM, that is until MGT released spectacular latest record Gemini Nyte. From opener All The Broken Things all the way through, we are treated to the eerily perfectly matched vocals of Ashton Nyte and skilled guitar wizardry of Mark Gemini Thwaite to give us […]

Lacuna Coil live at Kentish Town Forum, London

Lacuna Coil’s 119th show was undoubtedly one of the weirdest gigs I have been to in the most incredible way. Not only was the music brilliant, they put on what felt like a musical theatre production throughout the show. During the concert, the band were backed by an imaginative array of circus acts including an […]

MGT embrace Every Little Dream!

Goth rockers MGT have revealed new single Every Little Dream! The track is taken from highly anticipated new album Gemini Nyte, set for release through Cleopatra Records on February 23, 2018! The band, comprising of former The Mission/Peter Murphy guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite and The Awakening vocalist Ashton Nyte, have provided thirteen new songs, and the album also features Killing Joke‘s Paul Ferguson on […]

HIM with support from Biters live at Rock City, Nottingham

Atlanta rockers Biters take to the stage to the sound of Ace Of Spades. They begin with frontman Tuk telling the audience how this is a special occasion before heading into some good old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll. The overall reaction from the crowd is quite tame, which is a shame as the band really put […]
