“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...

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. However, as such bands age, many make peace with their adolescent woes, losing that drive and spark that fuels their work. In contrast, others substitute the central themes within their art, reinventing their music for other righteous purposes that bol...

Despite such a genre being synonymous with lauded international acts such as Deafheaven, Oathbreaker and MØL – just to name a few – the UK is home to an underground contemporary black metal scene that is awash with festering talent. Granted, our island nation may not be currently be globally renowned for it’s blackgaze scene, but that’s abound to change very soon, a fact that Hidden Mothers will m...

The concept of Artificial Intelligence - or just simply AI - has long been a fundamental mainstay within the realms and tomes of science fiction. However, whilst such a concept has spent eons as just being an unobtainable trope or thought experiment, the last several decades have seen the AI creeping it's way into real life. Granted, where still yet to be terrorised by Sonny from I, Robot just yet, but with the popularisation...

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 s...

If there was a single world to describe the electro-punk outfit CLT DRP it would most probably be ‘provocative’. Every single concentrated element of the Brighton collective screams confrontation; their music is savage, they defy genre norms, frank sexuality is a vital competent of their outspoken message and if you’re not quite sure how to pronounce their namesake, just use your imagination.

The opinionated notion that rock and metal have long exhausted their potential seems to be highly popular as of late. Within not just the last few years, but the past decade or so, a seemingly endless of cascade of poorly argued opinion pieces have littered the ether stating how the genre is long dead and decomposed. Of course, such a notion is utterly absurd. Anyone who has peeked into the scene’s underbelly will know this, w...

Dublin has long enjoyed a global reputation for many a year, with it’s earnest cobblestoned streets, emerald decadence and Celtic lilt captivating the minds and hearts of countless of visitors. However, beneath such cobble the city is host to a flourishing and robust contemporary music scene, one that nurtures emerging talent and collectively fights back the all sterilising nature of gentrification. One such band to emerge fro...

Lacerating riffs and cocktail sophistication - a timeless, perfect mix.

Bar from writing and playing feral metalcore in the vein of Every Time I Die, Cancer Bars and While She Sleeps, Bristolian metalcore yob RXPTRS love nothing more than a good, high percentage alcoholic beverage. Whilst the summer has long been a season associated with social drinking, for obvious reasons, this year has been a bit different. With that i...
