To be a rock fan in the early eighties was heaven itself. The awkwardly named ‘New Wave of British Heavy Metal’ (NWOBHM) had seen some great bands coming forward, the Monsters of Rock festivals at Donington (forerunner of Download), had begun and there were some great live albums being released. No Sleep Til’ Hammersmith, Strangers in the Night and Saxon’s 1982 offering The ...Read More »
Hailing from Scotland, though you’d never be able to tell with their unaccented vocals and no bagpipes insight rockers, The Xcerts, release an acoustic EP titled Late One Night.

Nazareth were never a straight-up hard rock band, they bothered the Top 20 singles charts too much in their glory days for that and one look from their earliest albums on would tell you they were as likely to cover a number by The Band as much as The Yardbirds. Ultimately they brought out songs they liked. Not that they’ve ...Read More »
Homebound, the Farnham based pop-punk outfit have released, for me, arguably one of the strongest collections of the year. There is so much across this release that causes it to stand above the myriad other pop-punk albums and EP’s coming out. For example, there are traces of much heavier elements scattered amongst the more upbeat pop-punk foundations. Opening track ‘Change ...Read More »
You’d be forgiven for not being familiar with Abandoned By Bears. The Swedish easycore/pop-punkers have seemingly gone under the radar for many, despite being signed to Victory and an almost continuous touring and releasing schedule since their inception in 2012. However, latest release Headstorm will almost certainly go a long way to changing that. The eleven tracks that make up Headstorm are ...Read More »
