The debut album by Fires In The Distance is something of a happy accident; the first song written for what eventually formed the band wasn’t written for them at all. Initially written by Yegor (guitars/keys), Kyle (drums) and Craig (bass/vocals) for their main band Archaic Decapitator they soon realised the music just didn’t fit and they needed to do it justice. Bringing in guitarist/vocalist Kristian Grimaldi, they formed Fires In The Distance t...

There comes certain moments in bands’ careers when they decide to lay down the gauntlet, shooting for the stars with an eye on achieving musical immortality. Baltimore’s Exist are only on their third album, but with Egoiista, they have accomplished something quite brilliant; a dense and heady puzzle, a musical jigsaw that has been handed over with too many pieces to fit together.

Egoiista is Prog with a capital ‘P’. There are fusion solos, cosmic,...

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...

There’s a lot to be angry about in the world right now - the rise of the far right and neo-fascism, systemic racism, hatred of anything and anyone different than the white, cis-gendered “norm”, *deep breath*. impending ecological collapse, a giant recession looming on the horizon AND a global pandemic ravaging the planet. It’s exhausting just to type that out but to give in to apathy and just accept it is to lie about the possibility of a better...

Originally formed by Hammer Horde drummer Jayson Cessna and guitarist Derik Smith and conceived of as a way to explore different pastures to their usual Viking stylings; out of it came Astralborne, self-releasing their album Eternity’s End back in 2019 but quickly snapped up for an international re-release by Prosthetic Records. 

Lyrically the album deals centrally with the theme of death and offshoots of this, opening with the tolling of funeral...

The world we live in is currently a very Anglo-centric world. English is considered an essential tool for people who live in countries where the language is not their first language, whereas English speaking countries do not get the same training in other languages. This lack of proper exposure to languages besides English is detrimental in many ways, in particular when it comes to art and media. Almost any artist or band that reaches any signifi...

Being the only grind band in the village can’t be easy, and South Carolina’s WVRM can lay claim to in fact being the only one in their local scene. This hasn’t deterred them, however, from releasing several EPs, splits and LPs prior to this, their third full-length Colony Collapse. We’re immediately treated to ‘Walled Slum City’ opening with a wall of feedback and sampled speech before a retching scream signals the arrival of the grind. The buzza...

When producing a follow up to an album like You Took The Sun When You Left, it would be a safe bet to expect Leeched to put out an album more or less in the same realm as the first. After all, Leeched's debut album came coupled with an overwhelming feeling of a band that have tirelessly honed their sound to a meticulous degree and are sitting comfortably in their lane. While sonically it may have seemed like the band had already arrived at their...
