“It’s difficult to sum up my feelings on this year. It’s been hopeless and frustrating and depressing, to be honest.” ​Madi Watkins​, bassist of ​Year Of The Knife,​ doesn’t mince her words when asked about her reaction to the events of 2020 thus far. “There is so much pain and injustice towards black and brown people in the US specifically, and when you stack the pandemic and the issues across the world on top of that, it can be hard to see the...

The euphoric heights, the stomach wringing lows and the adrenaline pumping inversions. When she's not busy fronting the post-metal powerhouse Svalbard, Serena Cherry is co-running CoasterForce, an online platform devoted to all things rollercoaster related. A bonafide coaster aficionado, Serena has spent years travelling the globe in order to experience the very best of what the world's theme parks have to offer, doc...

It’s commonly associated as a genre of youthfully giddy rebellion, but indie-punk and pop-punk has served as an outlet of frustration for countless young bands over the decades.

After five years in the making and one pandemic related delay, the full-length debut from feminist punk witches Dream Nails is finally with us - and goodness me was it worth the wait. 

A record of inclusivity, joy, rage and celebration, the self-titled record is the full encapsulation of the Dream Nails ethos and experience. In an age where the more wider punk gene pool has become stagnant, it's a showcase that the genre still has plenty to o...

As 21st century metal continues to evolve, few are as adaptable to change as Avatar. The Swedish giants have morphed into a multitude of lifeforms over their decade and a half long span. Yes, theatricality has remained the bands ultimate go-to, but as we reach a pivotal turning point for the five piece - their ability to change with the wind has never been more important.

Since its formation in the blood, beer, and various other liquids stained walls of underground clubs across East and West Coast North America - hardcore has always managed to reinvent itself.

Ironically though, it's this leve...
