This kind of heaviness should be regulated by the UN, we’re telling you. Kicking things off are Upon Those Dying (7.5/10), who after a fucking slamming opening set the night before, opening for King 810 at Clwb Ifor Bach, are still riding high off that energy and throw it back into the pit. Opening with ‘Savage’ they’re joined on stage with headliner vocalist Tyler Shelton for a brief guest spot that opens up the floor fucking sharpish. Though a...

If you’re going to open to one of the UK’s most important alternative act, you were going to have to really make an impression that stuck. Husky Loops [9] understood this and did what needed to be done, and by fuck did they leave a mark. Obnoxious; tongue and cheek; nonchalant: spectacular. The London trio’s sarcastic attitude was an infectious experience that left a smirk on this this reviewer’s face that just couldn’t be shaken.

Unpredictable i...

Death metal; gore, mutilation, murder and perpetual darkness personified in sound form. It’s a unique tapestry of brutality that takes a lot of time and patience to adapt to. Though a staple of underground metal culture, it has peeped its horned head into the wider world of the mainstream from time to time. Leading the army of the damned forward are Michigan five-piece The Black Dahlia Murder who’ve taken a big steaming dump on the naysayers of...

2017 marks the year of the Mastodon. Not only have fans been treated to one of the best albums since Crack The Skye with the sensational Emperor Of Sand, but out of nowhere – BOOM! – the Georgian quartet announce a new EP, Cold Dark Place. Promises of a proggier follow-up were made by the band did get us excited, but we couldn’t help but feel a little cautious with what they had hidden up their sleeve.

In a nutshell, CDP can easily be likened to...

; even saying the name shoots polyrhythmic shivers down the spine. Not since TOOL has there been a band that sends your mind into an infinite loop of contemplation, which explores uncertain territories of geometrically-sonic landscapes. Coming up to 2 years since the release of their masterpiece Polaris, we caught up with guitarist James Monteith at the ArcTanGent festival and got some insight into the life and future of British tech-m...

One of the main things that was taken away from this absolute jewel of a one-dayer, is that Bristol truly know how to support their music scene. Hundreds turned up to see the finest alternative, metal and pop-punk bands around for what was a belter of a day out. Spread across three stages, divided by two venues (The Lanes and Bierkeller), just shy of 30 bands in total gave it their all. It should be noted, that due to conflicting times, we unfort...

With the sun still blaring down like the bright smug bastard that it is, Fuel tonight proofed to be a safe haven from those unforgiving rays. With black metal firmly on the menu tonight, the darkness was more than welcoming.

Jumping in are Swansea trio Sepulchre [4] who have their fair share of charisma, but lack in the imagination department. Nothing new is brought to the table as they rely too heavily on a garage band sound that is ultimately un...
