Punk Music GENRE ARCHIVES

Phoxjaw and The King Is Dead at Satan’s Hollow, Manchester

It is a terrible crime that both of these bands find themselves playing a half empty small venue in Manchester on a Wednesday night, as both are perfect examples of new and exciting bands, drawing from the past while striving towards new territory.

Introducing The Hunting Project – the next big thing in the hardcore world

It is my pleasure to finally introduce to you a band called The Hunting Project. I've known these guys for some time, meeting them via my Love It To Death Instagram (Love It To Death is my personal music blog, in case you were wondering) back when they had no music out and were called Grizzly!. How times have changed.

Crows – Silver Tongue

In recent years, there has been an incredible surge in post punk music. From the dark, gothic overtones of a band like Grave Pleasures to the loaded political gunshots of Idles. The wave of 1980s nostalgia that has gripped the world for the last decade has gradually seeped into music and these bands are now coming to the fore. Crows are the latest, and they’re mixing that post-punk sound with a noisy riff driven edge. On the spectrum of this scene they fall somewhere in the middle of the two bands above and that is perhaps the biggest problem with this album.

Ithaca – The Language of Injury

If we were to highlight the best record label of 2018, it would comfortably be Holy Roar, who released a string of phenomenal heavy records throughout last year. 2019 looks to be no different, with the release of ITHACA’s debut record The Language Of Injury. A record which is brimming with emotionally charged metallic hardcore. A record that is one of the best British releases during this current renaissance of hardcore.
