July 3, 2020

To say the new record from The Winter Passing is decent would be a tad of an understatement. New Ways Of Living, the second full length from the Irish emo-tinged indie quintet, is a masterfully crafted release that is filled to the brim with warmth, authenticity, charm, skill and killer hooks. We even gave it our first perfect score of the year. It's pretty good. 

Yet what makes it so damn good is how it explores and expresses it's lyrical th...

A new musical outfit has emerged hailing from... well we don't actually know. The collective is called Plagues and consists of 5 members though who/what they are remains unknown as their faces are covered by absurdly terrifying masks. In terms of their music, they have just provided the first offering in terms of their debut single but let's take you back to the start.

Here's what we do know, the mysterious group Plagues have surfaced and have bee...

To say the world is in a pretty sorry state right now certainly wouldn't be a hyperbolic or melodramatic statement. From rampant systematic xenophobia and murder all the way to an ongoing global pandemic that mirrors a plot device from a subpar thriller, 2020 has essentially played host to the worst of the human condition - and the tunnel ahead is still without promising light.

With that in mind, it's no surprise u...

Just before the United Kingdom shut down, Gloucestershire alt-rock band Mirages were busy rehearsing with their newest band members. They were due to play their first gig as a unit, which was unfortunately, but unsurprisingly, cancelled. So what are they planning next? How are they entertaining their audience during this period of rare downtime that many of us are experiencing? We spoke (remotely) to guitarist/singer Jake Chown to find out.

Regardless of your own personal attitudes towards all things pop-punk, you would probably be pretty damn heartless to dislike Cardiff's Junior. Shunning all the stereotypical perceptions of the genre in favour of spreading joy, genre dynamism and just having a good laugh, the three-piece have long been a welcome breath of fresh air - something that's been dearly needed in recent times. 

Whilst the pandemic has essentially put a full stop...

To say that London's Black Orchid Empire are a project of many intricate components would be a bit of an understatement. Since their formation last decade, the trio have presented a new shade of prog rock that's formed of acrobatic vocals, calculated progression, tech-metal heft, arena-pop-rock swells and unhindered scope. One could say the band are a chemical combination of bands such as Tesseract, InMe, Biffy Clyro...

Following the murder of Minneapolis citizen George Floyd, white supremacy, inequality, police brutality and systematic racism have once again taken the spotlight. In aid of the now global fight against such evils, thirty bands from all across the national hardcore scene have collaborated on a fundraising release directly supporting protest and activism efforts within both the UK and US.

Released June 26th via Bandcamp and made possible v...

“There is no description for this band. No one could possibly explain what this is.” That’s the social media biography that greets one trying to find information on the South Wales collective DEATH CULT ELECTRIC. It’s an ever so slightly smug statement that borders upon being egocentric - certainly not something a band that holds itself with unassuming modesty would proclaim. However, this band are anything but unassuming, modest and reserved. Vi...
