Having toured with the likes of Boston Manor, WSTR and even Funeral For A Friend, South London’s Wallflower have become somewhat of a hidden gem in the UK emo/post-hardcore scene. Their first two EPs, Summer Daze (2014) and When It Fell Apart (2017) were undoubtable hits, and there was no questioning if their debut album could continue this momentum.

Teach Yourself To Swim’s four lead singles certainly made it unclear what to expect. Politically-d...

Asking Alexandria have been held under the microscope more than any other metal band in the last four years. Their last two albums, The Black (2016) and their self-titled (2017), were both incredibly significant in the band regaining a fanbase due to frontman changes. Original vocalist Danny Worsnop departed in 2015 to be replaced by Denis Stoff, and returned again in late 2016. The Black needed fans to embrace Stoff, and the self-...

Metalcore veterans August Burns Red return with their ninth album Guardians; an 11-track indication that less is more.

Prior to release, the Pennsylvanian five-piece spoke about how this album was more of a collaborative effort between all members, which has quite rightly allowed all instruments to thrive. In particular, Matt Greiner’s drum patterns are fiercer and more prominent, while JB Brubaker’s riffs are clean yet still aggressive. So many e...

Canadian veterans Silverstein are celebrating their 20th anniversary with their tenth album A Beautiful Place To Drown, but does it highlight their experience or just their age?

When you’ve been writing music for over 20 years, members of this prolific group must have been struggling for ideas. However, they’ve kept the concept of A Beautiful Place To Drown fresh with some of the most innovative collaborations we’ve ever seen. While most band...

Just over two years since the release of their breakthrough debut album The Mortal Coil, rising Aussie metalcore stars Polaris are back with an album that shows progress and promise.

Within the ten-track release, Polaris explore multiple areas of metal, from classic chuggy hardcore to melodic, production-filled metalcore and a healthy pinch of nu-metal. All of these subgenres are undertaken with expertise and minimal downfalls, conveying this is a...

Parisian metalcore collective Novelists FR came into the scene with a strong start thanks to their highly acclaimed debut, Souvenirs, in 2015, followed by Noir two years later. Now they’re back with their new release C’est La Vie, but does it follow suit or live up to its inexplicable name?

The instrumentation as a whole is outrageous from the get go, with opening tracks ‘Somebody Else and ‘Deep Blue’ featuring djent-style riffs, prominent blast b...

West Virginia-based metal collective Left Behind’s latest album No One Goes To Heaven is their first since joining label giant Pure Noise Records (Knocked Loose, Terror, Counterparts), meaning expectations were high.

As the album title suggests, the theme circulates around vocalist Zach Hatfield dismissing religion as a means of solace for his mental illness or situation. With a clear, coherent tone similar to Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch...

When Canadian hardcore crew Counterparts announced their sixth studio album - Nothing Left To Love back in August, vocalist and front man Brendan Murphy bluntly admitted “I wouldn’t hold your breath for anything groundbreaking”, which immediately dampened the high expectations fans held for the record. But in hindsight, this was probably for the best. Whereas previous album You’re Not You Anymore saw the band expand on melodic elements, many of t...
