Metal GENRE ARCHIVES

The Raven Age – Conspiracy

The Raven Age are a band who have had a lot of high praise laid upon them in recent years, including being hailed as one of next big hopes in British metal. They certainly have ambitious credentials, creating and releasing their new album Conspiracy almost entirely DIY and through their own label Corvid Records. Conspiracy also promises the continuation of an epic storyline centred around the ravens in the Tower of London. Is the hype surrounding The Raven Age something they can live up to?

While She Sleeps – So What?

While She Sleeps have certainly had a bumper couple of years. Following the massive (and somewhat unexpected!) success of 2017’s entirely self and fan-funded “You Are We”, released on their own Sleeps Brothers Records, which netted them a best album win at the Heavy Music Awards and a top ten album in the UK charts, you’d think it might be pretty hard for Sheffield’s masters of metallic hardcore to keep the momentum going.

Lets Talk About… Bring Me The Horizon

In this edition of Let’s Talk about, we discuss the evolution of Sheffield’s Bring Me The Horizon as they transform from metal starlets to pop newcomers.

Mastiff – Plague | ALBUM REVIEW

”A miserable band from a miserable town”. That is how Mastiff summarise themselves on their social media. I've never been to Hull, but if Mastiff are the aural representation of the town, then I'm not sure I want to visit. This is a band who specialise in brutality, whether that be when they utilise extreme pace or, more often, the thudding grinding groove that propels their particular brand of sludgy grinding heaviness.

Mastodon and Kvelertak Live Review at Leeds 02 Academy

If you asked anybody about the best metal bands to emerge this side of the millennium, chances are Mastodon would be one of the first bands out of their mouth. And with good reason. In the 19 years since the release of their debut full length, Remission, the Atlanta four-piece have gone on to release critically acclaimed records, top album of the year lists and even win a Grammy. Tonight they take on Leeds, in thoroughly miserable weather it must be said.
