The Algorithm, Audio, Glasgow

Walking into the Audio in Glasgow, I was shocked to see how full the venue was already and how diverse the crowd was; their was your full on moshers, your metalheads, your ravers and your new age new age hippies...

Track of the Day: As Lions – White Flags

The band's latest release is the single 'White Flags' that has been produced by David Bendeth and we have named it our Track of the Day!

Sixx A.M. – Prayers for the Damned Vol 1

Sixx A.M is the brainchild of former Motley Crue bassist, Nikki Sixx. Prayers of the Damned Vol 1 is a breath of fresh air in a music world that is full of the same and if you are looking for a straight up rock album this is the place to start.

A History of Slam Dunk Festival

2016 marks the tenth year of Slam Dunk Festival. The festival has quickly become the UK’s premier touring festival, almost being likened as the younger British cousin of America’s massive Vans Warped Tour. To celebrate and to get you more excited for this year's May bank holiday shenanigans, we take a look back at the festival from its inauguration in 2006 right up to what you can expect from 2016.

Max Raptor – Max Raptor Album

It’s not hard to tell that the boys have put their blood sweat and tears into writing this album, and it has definitely paid off. You can feel the emotion screaming at you through your speakers and can’t help but relate.

The GazettE are Undying

Japan's leading heavy-rockers The GazettE have released three track maxi-single UNDYING via JPU Records.

Yorkshire's finest new rock prospects Allusondrugs and Fizzy Blood have combined to produce a summer face-melting co-headline tour. Both bands have cemented a great friendship and have seen high praise from some of the music industry's main players.

PVRIS, ABC O2, Glasgow

Heading to the ABC O2 for this gig, I couldn't wait to see PVRIS again. They had impressed me with their support slot on the Bring Me The Horizon tour and I could tell by the buzz of the crowd inside the venue that I wasn't the only one who was excited to see PVRIS.

Iodine Sky – Tides

When you think Manchester you initially think gloomy lyrics a-la Joy Division and, soft melodies like those of The Smiths, however, anthemic songs with catchy hooks may not be necessarily something that comes to mind. Manchester based quartet, Iodine Sky have set out to change that!

BLACK PEAKS – STATUES

It's pretty bizarre what's going on with that gentleman's face on the cover, but weird doesn't always equal bad. In fact, when you hear this album, you may just agree with that sentiment...

Dead! @ Shadow Sounds, Glasgow

For this gig I took a trip south of the River Clyde to the intimate venue, Shadow Sound. With this being a small venue in the back of a rehearsal studio, there is no bar, and with its BYOB policy it has a great community feel...

We took a listen to Vessel, the debut album from Post-Hardcore quintet, Cute Cute Death. Find out what we though inside...
