Between The Lines are set to release EP To The Wind on July 6th 2018. The EP contains two tracks titled ‘Anywhere But Here’ and ‘To The Wind’. Opening track ‘Anywhere But Here’ has fast pop-punk guitars and an upbeat feeling that makes the song fit in perfectly with other pop-punk tracks, that are currently dominating the alternate radio stations up and down ...Read More »

When listening to Pastoratet’s THLM one thing immediately becomes apparent, how music is able to cross borders and language barriers to connect with listeners. Haling from Tidaholm/Skövde the members of Pastoratet have all been playing punk music since the 90’s in multiple different projects before Pastoratet formed in 2009. This experience really pays off when listening to this record with ...Read More »
Wytch Hazel’s 2016 debut Prelude suggested these Lancastrians had the potential to become a significant entry into the world of hard rock. Two years on, they have released II: Sojourn, an album that, according to singer, guitarist and songwriter Colin Hendra is: “a concept album, but not in the traditional sense, it’s quite strongly themed: side A is ‘The Plight’ ...Read More »
My knowledge of Greek rock bands is slim to say the least. Although I have been a fan of Socrates Drank the Conium for years, Raw In Sect is the first to catch my attention since then (ignoring Rotting Christ on purpose). Comprising of Kostas Diamandis (Lead Vocals & Guitar), Dimitris Alexiou (Drums & Backing Vocals), George Ioakeimidis (Guitar & ...Read More »
The clue’s in the name, here we have a band with their roots firmly in the late 60’s. Picture Blue Cheer, the 13thFloor Elevators, Jodo and early Sabbath contributing to a composite sound of heavy, muddy guitars and riffs aplenty. Based in Cheshire, Jimi Ray (Vocals), Sam Orr (Guitar), Tom Richards (Bass) and Dan Amati (Drums) will make you think ...Read More »
THE BRONX play pure fire bangers, mixed with a rowdy and up for it crowd | Electric Ballroom, London
It’s a very, very unusually hot day in the capital of London. Sweltering heat to many marking the beginning of summer time before the solstice comes around, and everyone is filling the streets of Camden Town with a very receptive vibe of positivity and feverish happiness. However, considering this is the very same weekend that the awesome Download Festival is ...Read More »
After the explosive impact of their last release, I was excited to hear Black Fast‘s latest musical offering. On the surface, Spectre of Ruin is a solid metal album. It has ferocious energy, top-tier production, and is consistently heavy throughout. I can’t help but feel though that the overall product is quite generic. There are a few moments, such as the bridge ...Read More »
Zeal & Ardor’s 2017 Debut, Devil is Fine was an exercise in experimentation, fusing together soulful delta blues with furious, biting black metal to create an altogether new sound. The project – the brainchild of French composer Manuel Gagneaux – took hold in the metal world after a reissue through MVKA, and fast became one of the most exciting bands ...Read More »
Did you know there is a genre of music called blackgaze? I certainly didn’t. It is the ambience of shoegaze (post-rock) combined with the brutality of black metal in what is undoubtedly the most confusing sentence I have written during my time at RAM. Clearly then, it is a very niche genre, but that hasn’t stopped Danish five-piece MØL from ...Read More »
A polymath is the name given to a person who could be considered as having expert knowledge across a range of topics. da Vinci, for example, was a polymath. I am most certainly not one (unless Icelandic football and Doctor Who counts?). Poly-Math are also a Brighton based three-piece, whose latest release House of Wisdom | We are the Devil has ...Read More »
