Embers Of A Dying World is the sixth full-length album from Finnish melodic death metallers Mors Principium Est. Having formed around 2002/3 the band have gone through a number of line-up changes but it wasn’t until 2007 when English man Andy Gillion joined as the main songwriter that they really found their stride. This album like the previous stands up ...Read More »

Bandwagon jumping has long appeared preferable to trendsetting in the world of pop-punk, and with debut record Red, Green or Inbetween’ it appears that Liverpudlian quartet WSTR have very little desire to break the mould. Comparisons with Neck Deep have haunted this band since their inception and to be frank it’s clear to see why. The vocal tone of frontman Sammy ...Read More »
While I was growing up, I was hugely into the typical stuff, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Slayer, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin etc, much like most I guess. While my tastes grew and expanded to the darker, heavier stuff as I got older, it also got drawn into some older stuff such as blues and southern rock with bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd ...Read More »
When I think of Austria, I think of the history, the landscape, Sigmund Freud, the beauty of the place, oh, and some small known guy called Schwarzenegger. Most importantly though, I know it for beer. Now I have something new to think of, Turbobier. I may not know any Austrian, but when a band has a name like that and ...Read More »
A fantastic start to what sounds like a brilliant album. Vocally strong with real power backing them up – you could say real head banging ferocity can be obtained when listening to this. It’s a bold track with a lot of clout and heavy metal rhythms. The second track ‘ The second track ‘Strike With Power’ does that most definitely ...Read More »
This EP is bound to lift you out of your shoes and across the floor, make no mistake it is so heavy the floor is juddering in defeat! The rhythms are monumental and fuelled with balls of steel. Stoner rock is just superb listening – when you think of it, it sounds like a bunch of hippies have got together ...Read More »

Well there is nothing that feeds the blood more than good old metal grind and hardcore. It’s punishing and brutal and you can feel your whole body shake when it begins. It’s rife with toxic savagery and really brutalises with superb riffs and heavy thunderous blast beats that eat you alive. They breed impure and fuel-charged aggression that is soaked ...Read More »
The name Sertraline for anyone like myself that has had to take the drug will know it lightens mood and literally pulls you out of depression, and so Sertraline has been good for me, so it is quite an honour to be able to review a band with such a positive name for starters. The band now have a new ...Read More »
I am loving the start of this it’s dream-like and classical, not that I say that often, going more for the large joint with the most meat on its bones, which surprisingly enough it has just magically transformed into, what a fantastic track. Plus I like the name Drude it’s simple and just sums up the band really well as ...Read More »
