Skeletal Remains, Blasphemer, Zealot Cult and RipTide at Rebellion Manchester

After a weekend of nothing but heavy metal, what do you need most on the Monday night? More metal of course. So after Bloodstock Festival we find ourselves at Rebellion in Manchester for a night of thrash and death metal.

Mallory Knox by Mallory Knox album | Album Review

Mallory Knox return with their eagerly anticipated forth album and, in a brave move, it's self-titled. When it comes to heightening expectations, that's one thing that does it. Self-titling implies that this record, these songs, are definitive of the band.

Junior ‘Beautiful Life’ album review

Junior have spent two years writing 'Beautiful Life', recording it across three studios, with the simple goal of pushing out the boat both with their own sound, and with the messages they can get out in their songs. They work long and then work hard, and it's safe to say that they've proved they're not just another pop punk band.

Download Festival 2019

Download 2019 was a complete mudfest, but an absolutely incredible weekend.

Crown The Empire- Sudden Sky

Texan metalcore outfit Crown The Empire are back with their fourth album, Sudden Sky.

Lights – Skin & Earth Acoustic

Following the successful release of her latest album Skin & Earth, Canadian alternative pop sensation lights has reworked some of the tracks into an acoustic EP, complete with three brand new acoustic singles. Being a fan of the artist, I had a listen to see how the songs transcended.

Sunsleeper – You Can Miss Something & Not Want It Back

Sunsleeper's new album 'You Can Miss Something & Not Want It Back' is a bold statement, both in title and music. They don't shy away from the emo label, readily embracing their influences on the new record. But the fact is, anything could happen on an emo revival album.

Decay – Modern Conversation

Just signed with Birmingham independent record label, Fox records are Liverpool’s Decay. A Band of former members of a pop punk outfit decided to move to an more aggressive emo sound with Modern Conversation.

PhoxJaw – A Playground for Sad Adults

Bristol’s Phoxjaw are back with their second EP, A playground for Sad Adults. So, let’s get this part started, Phoxjaw are comprised of Danny Gartland, Josh Galop, Kieran Gallop and Alexander Share, the press likening their sound to Biffy Clyro and Deftones…..strong stuff.

Torchbearer- Against the Tide

Out of south Wales come Torchbearer. A hardcore punk quartet with a brand new EP on the way. Against the Tide is it’s name. Recorded across two studios, the EP is made up of five, furious tracks that are sure to draw some interest from fans of hardcore. 

Strange Bones- Blitz Pt 1

Blackpool punks, Strange Bones plan to hit your ears with several EPs over the course of 2019. Blitz Pt 1 is the first of these, recorded by the four piece at their home studio and mixed by Thomas Mitchener. The band have a solid punk core, evident not only from their DIY recording but from their sound too.

The St Pierre Snake Invasion – Caprice Enchantè

Let's not beat about the bush here, The St Pierre Snake Invasion have one of those band names you just don't take seriously, like Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!. The fact is, Chunk and most other bands who have made it anywhere despite having a ridiculous name can back themselves up with good music. With the new record from The St Pierre Snake Invasion, however, the question lies not in the name, but in the music.
