COPE ‘The Shock Doctrine’ album review

Cope released their debut album The Shock Doctrine on 22nd of May. A hardcore assault designed to scream (literally) about the world's ills, Cope intend to draw attention to the crumbling state of the modern world. Fitting, really, given recent events.

Code Orange – Underneath

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.

Wage War, DED and Thornhill @ Key Club, Leeds

Wage War, DED and Thornhill at the Key Club in Leeds was hands down the heaviest gig I’ve put my name down for. That being said, I concluded it was an experience I had to have.

A chat with Telle Smith from The Word Alive

Back at Slam Dunk, deputy editor Lizi sat down with The Word Alive frontman Telle Smith for an in-depth chat on a decade of the band, ending a mammoth European tour at Slam Dunk and more.

Stray From The Path – Internal Atomics

Political rabble rousers Stray From The Path return with their 9th album Internal Atomics. The hardcore four-piece from Long Island have come along way since their beginnings at the turn of the millennium, and this latest release sees them hit new heights.

Album review: ‘Nothing Left To Love’ by Counterparts

Counterparts new record has finally landed; another serving of in your face, aggressive hardcore tunes. 'Nothing Left To Love' is there sixth outing, and sees the band harnessing unashamedly their signature sound, with only mild deviations.

Can’t Swim – Foreign Language

New Jerseys Can’t Swim are back with six-track EP, Foreign Language released via Pure Noise Records. Foreign Language is my first foray into the music of Can’t Swim, I hear previous records Fail You Again and This Too Won’t Pass exploded their fan base around the U.S.

Issues – ‘Beautiful Oblivion’

Issues haven't completely shed the skin that is metalcore on new record 'Beautiful Oblivion', but they've certainly moisturised it with some extra glossy melodies that make the record more accessible to people outside of the scene

Crown The Empire- Sudden Sky

Texan metalcore outfit Crown The Empire are back with their fourth album, Sudden Sky.

Bury Tomorrow will be playing Black Flame in full on their UK tour

I Prevail w/Palisades @ Electric Ballroom London

Doors opening at 7pm to a Sold Out show, with all patiently waiting for an hour before Palisades are set to take the stage. Everyone seems to be keeping themselves fairly entertained though by singing such "hits" as Bob The Builder, Spongebob Squarepants and Bon Jovi's 'Living On A Prayer' to name a few, in such a football chanting way.

Wage War announce January 2020 tour

Wage War are kicking off June by looking to 2020 as they announce a run of UK dates for the beginning of next year.

Harbinger – Compelled To Suffer

With their debut album, Harbinger showcase bags of potential. With a sludgy aura and thrashy riffs, there’s tonnes of influences throughout this record. It swings from metalcore to death metal. It’s a record that will perk the ears of many metal fans. Perhaps the only downside of this record is that it drags a bit. At 49 minutes long, there isn’t enough to keep you interested for that length of time. There is a lot throughout that shows potential but at the length it is it certainly needs to be more consistent.

Siamese – Super Human

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!
