Soilwork ‘The Living Infinite’

The pathway of musical history is littered with examples of bands who have tried to make double, or even triple, disc albums and have not succeeded. Invariably the first album has had some decent tunes on it, but nothing that stands out that much, and the second album is normally pretty poo. It is a shame, but it seems that ...

Fall Out Boy ‘Save Rock and Roll’

BMTH Sempiternal Review

The outline for this review is really quite simple; forget everything you thought you knew about Bring Me the Horizon. The Sheffield five-piece have constantly changed what we know as British metalcore and have been one of the bands at the forefront of the genre since debut ‘Count Your Blessings’ back in 2006. Fourth album, entitled ‘Sempiternal’, recorded over three months ...

Giant Drag – Waking Up Is Hard To Do

Giant Drag have had a lot of praise thrown their way or in the case that it’s only Annie Hardy that had stayed constant in the band-her way… In 2006 they were a highly thought of publication’s ‘pick’ to make it big, they’ve had comparisons to bands like My Bloody Valentine and Hardy has had guest spots with the mighty ...

Adept – Silence the World

These days it seems like bands are constantly trying to straddle genres like an errant cowboy straddles two horses. This could be to appeal to the most amount of people, so the most amount of people will buy their music and come to their shows – the music industry is such, that bands can’t really afford to be picky about ...

Six Feet Under – Unborn

It was quite a surprise to hear Six Feet Under were bringing out another album as their previous was released less than a year ago. Buy hey, who am I to complain? That would be blasphemous! More metal = smiley faces all around. ‘Unborn’ is the 10th studio album from the death metal unit who have now been rocking out ...

Suicidal Tendencies 13

Still Cyco After All These Years? It has been 13 years since Suicidal Tendencies’ last studio album ‘Free Your Soul…And Save My Mind’ which is quite a considerable gap for a band to have in their discography. If you’re hoping for a return to 80’s era Suicidal Tendencies then I’ll go right ahead and say flat out that this album ...
