Yellowtooth ‘Disgust’ Album Review

Take a bit of Clutch’s Blast Tyrant album, mix that with copious amounts of fuzz, some Weedeater and then maybe take George Fisher’s vocals but with added Southern seasoning, and you have something close to Disgust. Throughout the whole album the influences from other doom and stoner bands are pretty evident and in your face, especially Clutch. I know I ...

Bowling For Soup/The Dollyrots/Patent Pending ‘One Big Happy’ Album Review

First off, I love pop-punk. I honestly do. It’s hilarious, and it’s happy. This new release from Bowling For Soup, The Dollyrots and Patent Pending, in which they all do covers of each others’ songs is one big mash-up of bouncy, American, fun-filled goodness. Each band does three tracks which were originally recorded by one of the other bands. First up, let’s ...

Dying Fetus @ O2 Academy3, Birmingham

Dying Fetus. The mere mention of their name is enough to put most people off. However to those who can see the beauty in death metal they are the top dogs, exceeded only by perhaps their New York brothers Cannibal Corpse. As if the simple aspect of their presence wasn’t enough, following them on their European tour are an entourage ...

Saturnian ‘Dimensions’ Album Review

Beginning at the beginning, like any story told, is a flamboyant instrumental track layered with choir singing that leads your mind through an symphonic star wars, towards the second track where this album by Saturnian truly begins, ‘Into Etheria’. This then explodes into powerful blast beats accompanied with the majestic voice of Wilson who resembles the sound of Shagrath of ...
