Bristolian singer/songwriter Gaz Brookfield’s (8.5) vibe fit perfectly with the Forest Stage’s intimate setting. His songs were perfectly crafted stories, capturing the attention of his audience. Technical issues prompted Brookfield to head into the middle of the crowd after one song, resulting in a huge singalong. From the amusing ‘The Diabetes Blues’ to the sombre ‘Tale of Gunner Haines’, Brookfield’s set and chatter between...

In a genre that’s uncontrollably overflowing with fresh meat, it’s easy to blend in with the crowd. From palm-muting bass to solo riffs, all the generics of metalcore are constantly covered in the UK’s heavily populated scene. However, London-based quintet THECITYISOURS are on course to catapult into the limelight with new release, Low, proving that it’s still possible to produce a fresh offering in this overly saturated genre that pushes past th...

Sometimes grindcore is hard hitting and fast. By the very nature of extreme metal, being an underground genre of metal, there is the edge of the ...other. Reptilium are a South American band that are parts grindcore and death metal, but with an edge that reminds one of bands like The Berzerker: all dirty and with an industrial twinge.

This little EP, Conspiranoic, is a blemish of dirty death metal. It's disgusting and hard hitting. Several walls s...

Approximately 15 year’s following their initial inception, it’s difficult to visualise the post metal scene without the presence or influence of Russian Circles. Following their formation in the early 21st century, the post metal juggernauts arose to prominence due to their collective dynamism, texture rich soundscapes and flawless utilisation of atmospherics. Every release thus far has gardened nothing but acclaim and praise, with their last res...

This year was a monumental one Slam Dunk. For its 13th year, organisers had scrapped the Midlands date and took its first step to develop North from a multi-venue city event to a fully-fledged outdoor festival in Temple Newsam Park, matching South’s move from The Hatfield Forum to Hatfield Park last year. The big move did spark some apprehension amongst North attendees, fretting over transport, weather and the general functionality of the festiva...

After the release of their second album, White Flag, Swedish post-hardcore band Normandie have been touring relentlessly. We caught up with drummer Anton Franzon and singer Philip Strand ahead of their set at 2000 Trees festival to talk touring, new music, and interesting venues.

Hey guys, how are you feeling about playing tomorrow? Is this your first time here?

Philip: Yeah, it’s our first time here at 2000 Trees. We’ve heard...

Bristol math rock three-piece Sœur’s (7.5) first set of the weekend was colossal. The harmonies of vocalist/guitarists Tina Maynard and Anya Pulver were hauntingly beautiful, a perfect juxtaposition with their meaty riffs. They flew through old favourites including ‘Fight’ and ‘Slow Days’ and treated us to newer material too. Their latest single, ‘Do What I Want’ sounded huge with the audience singing the words back to the band....
