Saint Petersburg - one of the more progressive regions of the great Russian expanse – has steadily garnered a reputation for hosting some truly innovative and groundbreaking musical artists over the past decade or so. Maybe it’s the city’s more social progressive sensibilities or its rich cultural history, but nevertheless, Russia’s second largest city is now a hub for technical aural modernism. Embodying such a fact is the city’s latest prime el...

Composed of one Rich Mandell and one Phoebe Cross, whilst they may seem initially relatively unassuming, Happy Accidents are a collective that harbour an abundance of substance and self-cultivated experience. Belonging to the same safe inner-city sanctum that’s home to artists such as Fresh, Charmpit, Dream Nails and countless other socially conscious punk artists, the London indie-punk two-piece are one of those artists that soundtrack both the...

The world is an awful state right now, with many finding exhaustion and misery within the seemingly endless barrage of torment raining down. Documenting this and how the powers that be can find opportunity within such torment, is the debut album from London based hardcore crossovers COPE.

A wild and bucking journey through political and cultural discourse, The Shock Doctrine see's COPE secure a promising future for themselves with t...

For a hot minute now, the friendly neighbourhood alt-rock quartet Scavengers have been busy staking their claim within the constantly expanding and flourishing contemporary South Wales scene. Marring roguishly wholesome charm with massive melodies and fat groove, the group are one of those few select bands that are youthfully fresh whilst sounding like they've been honing their skills for years - something they proved with their debut EP...

Birthed in the mid 2000's, Colorado's Havok under normal circumstances would have had their work cut out for them in their quest to make themselves future stalwarts of thrash metal. You'll remember that as we were reaching the middle of the naughties, Nu Metal had arguably already peaked - and the new wave of American heavy metal was in full swing. The likes of Lamb Of GodKillswitch Engage, Machine Head, and Devildriver had charged through...

Dante Alighieri's 14th century epic, Divine Comedy, is opened with his now famous work, Inferno, which tells his journey through Hell itself. In this poem, he depicts hell as having 9 circles of torment, with each circle depicting a different transgression. The poem was written as a representation of a person rejecting sin and instead committing their soul to God.

This epic poem is the basis of the subject matter of the second EP from Reading-base...

“There are forces out there that want to see you suffer. When you are too tired, exhausted, miserable or apathetic to stand up for your rights, they will take them from you. That is the shock doctrine.” 

Few descriptions of an album’s inspirations are so succinct and so apt than COPE guitarist Josh Bowles’ summary of the band’s debut album The Shock Doctrine. It’s also a rather fitting title given that the band released a couple of EPs in 2016 and...

Hailing from the winding streets of inner Bristol, SANS are a technically interesting, if not face melting proposition. A band that are removed from mundane standard convention, the South West trio have spent the last several years melting flesh and short-wiring synapses with their sweat soaked mix of post-punk, noise, hardcore and just general aural relentlessness. It was something the group expressed turbulently with their 2019 debut Misophonic...
