German post-metallers The Ocean have certainly made a niche for themselves within the progressive metal umbrella. Not only have they stylistically managed to master combining the crushing heaviness of sludge metal and post-metal with the delicate intricacies of post-rock and progressive rock, they are also able to write music that tonally relates to a process or period of time they are talking about. Lyrically they are most well-known for writing...

Recently the rock and metal world has seen a number of scenes reviving the styles of years gone past. Whether it's heavier bands like Code Orange that fuse heavy hardcore and metalcore with the industrial elements of Nine Inch Nails, or bands like Ocean Grove and Blood Youth that take heavy influence from the nu metal of the late 90's and early 2000s, amalgamating stylings from genres of this bygone era is very popular right now.

Another rev...

Since their inception back in 2007, British proggers Haken have been steadily building an impressive discography and showing themselves to be one of the best examples of modern progressive metal. Some fans even argue that they have filled the empty space left by Dream Theater who, in recent years, have not exactly been garnering as much praise as they did in their heyday back in the 90s and early 2000's. Whilst this could be up for debate, it's i...

Make Them Suffer's career has been interesting so far, to say the least. The Aussie band's first few studio releases were very much grounded in deathcore with heavy key-led symphonic influences. However, as time progressed,  the band have made a lot of stylistic changes from album to album. Their sophomore full-length, Old Souls, still had a lot of the ferocious symphonic death metal elements of their earliest material, but it also had some songs...

Metalcore is a confusing subgenre. Initially coined as a joke term back in the 90s for metallic hardcore bands like Hatebreed, this is a style that now encompasses such a broad variety of bands that it's almost completely meaningless. On one hand, you have bands like the aforementioned Hatebreed and Counterparts who are much closer to hardcore and post-hardcore than they are metal, and then you have bands like Killswitch Engage and Shadows Fall w...

Dante Alighieri's 14th century epic, Divine Comedy, is opened with his now famous work, Inferno, which tells his journey through Hell itself. In this poem, he depicts hell as having 9 circles of torment, with each circle depicting a different transgression. The poem was written as a representation of a person rejecting sin and instead committing their soul to God.

This epic poem is the basis of the subject matter of the second EP from Reading-base...

If there's any band out there that consistently sets very high standards for themselves with every consecutive album, it would be Brisbane proggers Caligula's Horse. However, what makes Caligula's Horse such a great band is that they not only keep these high standards, but they seem to outdo themselves on each and every album they release. Their previous effort, In Contact, took all the best elements from their previous releases and blended them...

If there is any modern band that consistently sets high benchmarks for themselves with each passing album prior to execceding  such benchmarks like it's second nature, it's Perth proggers Cailgula's Horse. With the release of their highly anticipated fifth album Rise Radiant drawing near, we got in touch with guitarist Sam Vallen to ask a few questions about the new record, member dyanmics, fatherhood, touring, Covid-19 and Steely Dan.
