Louie Knuxx, Astroid Boys, Expire and Nasty – Camden Underworld

Despite having a somewhat polarizing line-up, the Deez Nuts ‘Word Is Bond’ tour was one of the biggest Alternative/Hardcore tour packages of 2015. On November 26th, the rambunctious line-up took over London’s Underworld, an iconic hub for both modern and classic punk music in our capital.

Spiritwo – Face to Face/Mesumamim

It’s almost two years since Spiritwo released their explosive art décor EP ‘Primitive Twinship’. Two years of waiting for a follow-up and now we have it.

Bad Pollyanna – The Broken Toys

This dark album is a great New Grave release. Full of dark lyrics and almost hypnotic melodies. This is an album that will not only connect with their existing fans but is sure to gain the band legions!

Some Skeletons – Vigils

Nottingham’s hometown boys 'Some Skeletons' release their debut album ‘Vigils’ on the 4th December, via independent label Mountains of Records and guess what, it’s released in enough time for Christmas. As the Duff man would say... "Oh yeah!".

Hercules Morse – Edge of Life

Edge of Life is a throwback to the old days. This EP starts off classy and ends in the same way, give this a few listens and you’ll appreciate what Hercules Morse have got going on.

Gnarwolves – Adolescence

We bring you the review of Gnarwolves' latest EP, Adolescence. But how does it measure up to last year's stunning debut?

The Dead XIII @ Fuel, Cardiff

It was time to lay siege to hell in the streets of Cardiff as Manchester's horror metal sons The Dead XIII arrived at Fuel Rock Club in Cardiff. Stepping out of their van to meet the fans waiting, armed with NERF guns, you just knew this was going to be a memorable first Welsh show for the quintet.

Seaway – Colour Blind

Altogether a great pop-punk album that has clearly trumped their 2013 release Hoser. A true pop-punk album with its light-hearted lyrics and upbeat, ginormous riffs, their sound hasn't changed much, but it has matured and the focus on simple melodies shows that all that is needed to produce a great album is creative variations on the simple melodies.

Solace in Nightmares – Secrets
