The phrase ‘never judge a book by its cover’ comes to mind when listening to Lizard Lounge, the new album from Barren Womb. It’s impossible to know what to expect from first impressions and appearances alone and it feels like Barren Womb go out of their way to subvert expectations for those unfamiliar with their work.

From the off, the name itself gives the impression that this is some sort of ‘grindcore’ project, however they actually describe th...

Cause of Pain, the debut album from New Jersey based group On Sight, is as fiery and aggressive as one would expect from a hardcore release, with plenty of energy to boot. It is though, as a whole, seemingly underwhelming, with its short track lengths (the longest being just over 3 minutes) combined with a total of only 7 songs and a runtime of a mere 15 minutes. Leading the record to be over in a flash and leaving you, the listener, wondering if...

Nightmares Of Our Own Design by Svengahli, the latest project from the mind of bassist and composer Alex Weber of Exist, is an intense and technically compelling new EP that highlights all that is great about progressive metal music. Weber displays exceptional musical aptitude and versatility as bassist, vocalist and drum programmer of the piece, combining influences in metal with that of the signature improvisational tangents of jazz (a componen...

There are plenty of tasty riffs to come your way in this new EP from North Carolina thrash metallers Krvsade. This band offers little in the way of introductions but list their influences as ‘Sepultura, Death, Morbid Angel, Vader, Slayer and Kreator’, which becomes quickly apparent once you dive in to their latest offering. 

Being an EP made up of three tracks, Krvsade waste no time in getting straight down to business with the furiously energetic...

Tusk, the latest album from the Finnish alt-prog metal group Somehow Jo!, is a new and refreshing take on the genre that charms and delights the listener from the start. When searching for words to describe this album, “fun” springs to mind almost immediately. This record is chock full of funky riffs and a wide variety of discernible influences from all corners of the musical spectrum, whisking you track-by-track on a whirlwind journey that is he...

Toothgrinder come barrelling out the gate with their latest album, I AM, setting the tone from the off for an explosive and tenacious follow-up to their second album Phantom Armour from just two years ago. With the acclaim of this prior record, the bar was already set high for what should come next from the New Jersey quintet. I AM quickly puts thoughts of ‘where do they go from here’ to rest with its punchy, unrelenting energy that ebbs and flow...

Birmingham was alive and in good spirits when UK rock duo Rews [6] kick-started the party at the O2 Academy in anticipation of the imminent arrival of the revered Pennsylvanian rockers Halestorm, wasting no time in electrifying the crowd with their terrific energy. Promptly they demonstrated just why they had been chosen to be the opening act of the evening, showcasing a fiery and engaging alt-rock performance that gorgeously complimented the hea...

Birmingham was alive and in good form on Wednesday 18th October as Seether rolled into town for the final leg of their tour promoting their latest album, Poison The Parish. Culminating the long journey in the very home of heavy metal, the humble O2 Institute may at first seem a bizarre choice for such a revered artist to sign off at, however the smaller venue did prove to provide quite a more intimate setting for what was certainly a keen and sup...
