Beth Blade And The Beautiful Disasters – Bad Habit

Review: Beth Blade & The Beautiful Disasters – Bad Habit

Beth Blade & The Beautiful Disasters I’ll admit, I had zero knowledge of before being sent the album to review, and going on the name alone I wasn’t completely sold. Naively on the name alone, I pigeon holed them into the female lead, hard rock genre. As it turned out, I wasn’t far wrong, to my delight though, it wasn’t ...

Psycho Kiss – Grit

Review: Psycho Kiss – Grit

Psycho Kiss come from South Wales area, a place that already has had its fair share of rock and rollers, possibly the largest of which being a certain Phil Campbell who needs no introduction. It turns out that apparently, that isn’t enough, cue Psycho Kiss. Grit is a clean cut, straight up in your face rock and roll release. The ...

Deliberations From The Shire with Mike James – Mors Principium Est

Embers Of A Dying World is the sixth full-length album from Finnish melodic death metallers Mors Principium Est. Having formed around 2002/3 the band have gone through a number of line-up changes but it wasn’t until 2007 when English man Andy Gillion joined as the main songwriter that they really found their stride. This album like the previous stands up ...

WSTR – Red, Green or Inbetween

Review: WSTR – Red, Green or Inbetween

Bandwagon jumping has long appeared preferable to trendsetting in the world of pop-punk, and with debut record Red, Green or Inbetween’ it appears that Liverpudlian quartet WSTR have very little desire to break the mould. Comparisons with Neck Deep have haunted this band since their inception and to be frank it’s clear to see why. The vocal tone of frontman Sammy ...

Turbobier – Das Neue Festament

Review: Turbobier – Das Neue Festament

When I think of Austria, I think of the history, the landscape, Sigmund Freud, the beauty of the place, oh, and some small known guy called Schwarzenegger. Most importantly though, I know it for beer. Now I have something new to think of, Turbobier. I may not know any Austrian, but when a band has a name like that and ...

Born Again - Strike it with Power

Review: Born Again – Strike it with Power

A fantastic start to what sounds like a brilliant album. Vocally strong with real power backing them up – you could say real head banging ferocity can be obtained when listening to this. It’s a bold track with a lot of clout and heavy metal rhythms. The second track ‘ The second track ‘Strike With Power’ does that most definitely ...

Keitzer - Ascension

Review: Keitzer – Ascension

Well there is nothing that feeds the blood more than good old metal grind and hardcore. It’s punishing and brutal and you can feel your whole body shake when it begins. It’s rife with toxic savagery and really brutalises with superb riffs and heavy thunderous blast beats that eat you alive. They breed impure and fuel-charged aggression that is soaked ...

Fueled Hate - March of the Pigs

Review: Fueled Hate – March of the Pigs

Not only do they have a great name, they also have an amazing eye-catching cover for their new album March of the Pigs. Dirty metal most definitely describes Fueled Hate to a T. I love the rapping vocals that are mean and harsh, punchy riffs and solid rhythms backing them up. It’s definitely easy to love Fueled Hate and the chaos ...
