Hands Like Houses – Hands Like Houses

If a band changes their sound, it’s always called “evolving”. However, evolution is a species adapting to its surroundings and becoming better at surviving. What do we call it when a band changes and the quality has regressed?

Venom Prison- Primeval

Primeval sees Venom Prison revisiting their first two EPS Defy the Tyrant and The Primal Chaos, giving the songs a chance to shine the way they wanted it to in the first place. The tracks from each are packaged with two brand new songs, a hint at where the band is set to go next which we’ll get to later. 

Snow Coats – Pool Girl EP

Dutch indie pop foursome are still riding high following a Dutch Indie XL chart number one a few months ago, and their talent shines through in four tracks of glorious bubble gum pop in their latest EP, Pool Girl.

Sleeping With Sirens – How It Feels To Be Lost (Deluxe) review

I had the pleasure of reviewing Sleeping With Sirens latest outing How It Feels To Be Lost before it dropped last year. Now I have the pleasure of reviewing the deluxe edition, which affords me the opportunity to look at the album retrospectively.

Madina Lake – The Beginning Of New Endings

“After a long hiatus, in April 2020 with the world locked down amidst a global pandemic, MADINA LAKE suddenly unveiled a ferocious new single, 'Playing With Fire'. It had been nine years since the release of their third album, 'World War III'. Since then, the charismatic band have been unveiling a new track each month until the EP's bundled release…”

Poisonous Birds – We Can Never Be All Of Us

The esoteric and unique alternative trio 'Poisonous Birds’ released their new EP ‘We Can Never Not Be All Of Us’ on 14th August… It’s pretty interesting…

Ingested – Where Only Gods May Tread – Album Review

Released on August 14, ‘Where Only Gods May Tread’ is the fifth studio album from UK death metal outfit Ingested.

Orbit Culture – Nija – Album Review

Swedish metal outfit ‘Orbit Culture’ are set to drop their first release with new label Seek And Strike titled ‘Nija’.

The Vigil – Hypervigilance

The new album from UK rockers The Vigil was released 21 August, promising a kick ass ride with influences ranging from hard rock and blues through to a grunge tinged alt-rock. 

Rews – Today We’re Warriors

Rews’ sophomore album “Today We’re Warriors” arrived on 7 August, and is a stalwart offering from the Irish band lead by songwriter Shauna Tohill. 

The Lawrence Arms – Skeleton Coast

This album had some bleak and often melancholic moments but despite this there are slight glimpses of hope to be found within all the dark lyrical content which is exactly what we need in the world today - to find hope despite the darkness!

Calva Louise – Popurri

Calva Louise have amassed themselves tonnes of praise, high profile fans and a decent following. However, new EP Popurri is nowhere near as eclectic or unique as people would have you believe.

Neck Deep ‘All Distortions Are Intentional’ review

If All Time Low’s Nothing Personal got criticism for being too pop and not punk enough, All Distortions Are Intentional should definitely get the same treatment.

The Acacia Strain – Slow Decay

The Acacia Strain's latest album is Slow Decay. It’s got groove, its got aggression and its got substance… You’re gonna love this…

nothing,nowhere. – one takes vol. 1

We’re promised a digital LP of reworked, stripped back fan favourites with the latest release from DCDS / Fueled by Ramen artist nothing,nowhere. and there’s no disappointment here. It’s powerful stuff.
