downcast – i saw hell when i was with you

downcast have released debut album i saw hell when i was with you and it is a record I fully recommend. Its looking like an early contender for album of the year.

VRSTY – Welcome Home

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

Torchbearer – Solace

Torchbearer have released their debut full-length album Solace and it is one you really should listen to!

Like A Storm – Okura

Like A Storm have returned with fourth album Okura. It is a much more personal and open album than their previous efforts and one I've not been able to stop listening to.

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.

Like Moths To Flames – Pure Like Porcelain

Like Moths To Flames have released new EP Pure Like Porcelain. The EP highlights the next stage of the band said guitarist Zach Phishey: “I think the EP is just a small taste of where we could possibly go next as a band. If No Eternity is considered a return to form album, then the EP is expanding those boundaries again. The coolest thing to me about the outcome of the EP is how extreme the shift in dynamic can be from song to song while still feeling like a cohesive listening experience as a whole."

Justin Courtney Pierre ‘Ghost World’ EP review

Justin Courtney Pierre has been incredibly busy this year. New EP Ghost World is his third of 2021, boasting five new tracks for a hungry audience.

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.

Angels & Airwaves – Lifeforms

There was high expectations for Angels & Airwaves' sixth album Lifeforms (out today) after it was launched into space. And quite frankly it lives up to those expectations and more.
