Our A-Z challenge is a fun way to get to know the many bands and artists out there. Today it’s the turn of Tim Montana to tell us all about themselves!

Reece Young takes on the A-Z challenge

Our A-Z challenge is a fun way to get to know the many bands and artists out there. Today it’s the turn of Reece Young to tell us all about themselves!

New Years Day – Half Black Heart

New Years Day released their latest album Half Black Heart today and it is an absolute cracker!

Charlotte Sands – Can We Start Over?

Charlotte Sands is one of the up-and-coming big names of rock who I had the pleasure of seeing live twice last year as she opened for PVRIS in January and 5 Seconds of Summer in October.

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. 

Mammoth WVH – ‘Mammoth II’

Mammoth WVH, the project of former Van Halen member Wolfgang Van Halen and all-round torchbearer for modern rock, have returned with their second full-length offering, Mammoth II, following on from their self-titled debut in 2021.

Enter Shikari – A Kiss for the Whole World

Enter Shikari are a band known for their use of synths, political lyrics and considered the pioneers of the genre ‘electronicore’.  

Hot Mulligan ‘Why Would I Watch’ review

Hot Mulligan’s third full length offering Why Would I Watch sees them just as aggressive and just as mathy and just as emo as ever. And the song titles are still needlessly long.

Pierce The Veil – The Jaws Of Life

Before you dig into the new album The Jaws Of Life from Pierce The Veil, you’ll do well to remember one sentiment: progression is a journey, not a destination.

The Dangerous Summer – ‘Coming Home’

Since their 2018 self-titled comeback, The Dangerous Summer have not let up. In a four-year period, new record Coming Home is their third full length. Impressive, and that’s ignoring the 2020 EP All That Is Left Of The Blue Sky.

Senses Fail – Hell Is In Your Head

On new album Hell Is In Your Head, Senses Fail tackle themes of mortality and fatherhood on the backdrop of two iconic pieces of literature, T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land (which influences the first 6 tracks) and Walt Whitman’s ‘To Think Of Time’ (the final 5).

VRSTY – Welcome Home

VRSTY have played around in the genre-bending arena with huge new album Welcome Home, to varying results.

Underoath – ‘Voyeurist’

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.

Wage War ‘Manic’ album review

I once scrolled on Instagram through a Wage War fan discussion. They had found little to enjoy from their (very good, if I do say so myself) 2019 outing Pressure, stating “if I listen to Wage War, I want it to be heavy”. They’ll be happy with Manic, for the most part.
