Ah, Green Day. What a wonderfully divisive little band. Are you a fan of Dookie, or did you enjoy American Idiot? Arguments over what is better will continue to rage over Internet forums, and their newest release will only add fuel to the fire. On the face of it, ¡Uno! is a return to more irrelevant, less preachy days. On ...Read More »

Volumes opened the show tonight and they certainly got the crowd going! Fans have already done a warm-up and we are only two tracks in. Fitting in ver...

After a three-year wait, the boys from Knoxville are back with their seventh studio album, The Valley. It is quite possible that there has never been ...
The release of Travis Barker‘s 2011 debut hip hop album Give The Drummer Some was met with mixed reviews. Generally met with praise by the hip h...
The Norwegian prog rockers known as Jordsjø released a rather solid and evocative record last year entitled Jord that was inspired by German 70s synth...
These Are The Good Old Days is the debut album by indie-rockers The Finest Hour. The press release accompanying the tracks extolled the quality of this new infusion of rock, indie, ska and folk. Now I don’t know about you, but I found that to be quite a terrifying statement. So with much trepidation, I put on my headphones, not ...Read More »
Well, what can you say? True to form, those Surrey boys have knocked out another pop punk smasher. ‘Reckless’ shows this band can still remain fresh and relevant while still staying faithful to their back catalogue. If you loved anything from Take Off Your Colours (or any of the other albums for that matter) then this will have you bouncing ...Read More »
It was metal legend Lemmy that hand picked Diaries of a Hero to support him on tour: the highest honour for any metal band really. Diaries of a Hero may not be all that well known across the scene at the moment but after a tour with Motorhead and Anthrax and a debut album like ‘Behind The Mask’ that’s sure to be a thing of the past. ...Read More »
Alongside the wonderful B.B. King box-set I reviewed a bit ago, a documentary charting the remarkable life of the blues musician is being given a limited release across selected cinemas. And lucky me, I was invited to go along and see it. A documentary such as this is a tricky subject to review. An in depth look at Riley King’s ...Read More »
As their biography tells me, Savage Annihilation came to existence when members from previous black metal and goregrind bands looked at each other in the eyes and felt a brief link. A single thought flowed unanimously amongst them, and lo’ Savage Annihilation was born, somewhere in the middle of France (Montargis, apparently). The entire album is ten tracks and forty ...Read More »
I am going to stop being sent these soon; most of my reviews seem to have some kind of negative undertones. Sometimes they are just blaring overtones mixed with a dash of compliment. A compliment sandwich they are not. With that in mind here goes for Viva La Revolution… they wrote a song about Zooey Deschanel, however its never going ...Read More »
Everyone knows KISS in some way shape or form. Usually it’s for the music, for the image or for the merchandise. They’re not a band anymore, they’re an international business brand. Fortunately, the glam rock band founded by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley in January 1973, still place a very high value on producing quality music. This brand new album ...Read More »
While some punk bands (and I will use this term very loosely before I get set upon by Fat Mike) tend to either mature or try and push their sound in a different direction, Self Entitled is just another NoFX record. Blink 182 are no longer writing songs involving sodomising dogs and getting blown by your mom, Sum 41 are ...Read More »
Here at RAMzine we don’t normally review singles, but today we have made an exception because we can’t emphasize enough how much you should go out and buy this one. In just a few weeks’ time, Fearless Vampire Killers will be releasing their double A-side single ‘Exploding Heart Disorder’ which features the title track and the infinitely amazing ‘Palace In ...Read More »
