 Birthed in industrial South Wales, Swansea/Newport-based trio ​Only Fools And Corpses​ have come out alive and fighting, lunging for the world’s throat. Conceived in summer 2018, guitarist & vocalist Cameron Mcintyre, bassist Dan Richards and drummer Jack Hughes began ​Only Fools and Corpses ​as jam sessions planned around Cameron’s idea for ​“an EP about a mind collapsing, just a few really horrible, themed songs about menta...

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 expre...

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...

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 Chow...

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 essenti...

For reasons we don’t need to explain, festivals this summer are - unfortunately - a no-go. But Sub Cultures, fresh from from the South-West, will bring the festival to you with their summery brand of indie-punk. The band are spread throughout the Forest of Dean, South Wales, and Gloucester, but they haven’t let this distance stop them from making music. 

Frontman Kane Radnor explained that their second single, ‘Alone’, was...

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 Tesserac...

Since their inception in 2018, Newcastle quartet Creegan have been busy cementing themselves as an essential edition to all those 'ones to watch' playlists we love to keep ourselves tuned to. Having played a string of sold out shows in the North East, blown away audiences at Hit The North festival, built a fast-growing Spotify fanbase and received media support from BBC Introducing alongside a plethora of other media outlets,...

Candlemass are one of the giants of Doom Metal. On their 12th album, The Door to Doom in 2019, and having just followed this up with a fresh EP, The Pendulum, they show no signs of stopping. This interview was conducted with Leif Edling via email.
 

Noizze: "The Pendulum is entirely made up of extra tracks from the recording sessions for the previous album The Door To Doom. These must have been extremely producti...

“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, mod...
