Teenage Bottlerocket - Stealing The Covers

Review: Teenage Bottlerocket – Stealing The Covers

Stealing The Covers is a covers album with a difference. Rather than picking songs then they are never going to better, Teenage Bottlerocket have gone back through their career and grabbed tracks from the countless bands they’ve toured with and which your standard fan probably hasn’t even heard of. It leads to a weird situation where you could put this ...

Wednesday 13 - Condolences

Review: Wednesday 13 – Condolences

Joseph Poole, aka Wednesday 13 has created a new album that is as far removed from his previous punk-rock work and comedic spin-off song covers as you can get. If you’re looking for ‘Morgue Than Words’, then you’ve come to the wrong place, but there are certainly ‘Bad Things’ here. This is a far darker and more sinister body of ...

Papa Roach - Crooked Teeth

Review: Papa Roach – Crooked Teeth

It’s been two years since the last album was released by our teenage dark love, Papa Roach and this will be the band’s ninth studio album. So, what’s new? Let’s find out. I’ve said this before and I undoubtedly will again, but when a band releases a statement such as the following; “We really wanted to kind of venture back ...

Malevolence - Self Supremacy

Review: Malevolence – Self Supremacy

Take a hardcore band, lock them in a room with Pantera’s discography (apart from that Kiss inspired stuff at the beginning that we don’t talk about) and then shoot them full of sludge. Hey presto, you’ve got Malevolence. And if that doesn’t sound good to you then quite frankly you don’t deserve it. If for some reason you do still ...

Oceano - Revelation

Review: Oceano – Revelation

Oceano have been around for over a decade now and have gone through a variety of sounds and line-ups in that time, so it’s no surprise to see that things are once again different on their newest album Revelation. Effectively the second album in this current iteration of the bands line-up but the first album since they switched over from ...

Following the success of their debut album, Higher Power, The Dirty Nil have dipped into their back catalogue to bring new fans a taste of what they were doing before. Minimum R&B takes one new track, a collection of 7 inches, plus the EP Smite and bundles them up into one big batch of alternative rock goodness. The question has ...

The Charm The Fury - The Sick, Dumb & Happy Review

The Charm The Fury – The Sick, Dumb & Happy Review

The Charm The Fury‘s second full-length offers up a whole new sound to what fans of the band will be used to and laces the influences of Pantera and Metallica throughout the record. Whilst the band admit this is fully intentional, the change leaves a sense that the band have not yet found the core sound they really want. This ...

Hellbound Hearts - Film Noir

Review: Hellbound Hearts – Film Noir

Everyone loves a chorus. There are few things better than a song which builds perfectly to that huge moment when everyone comes in together and screams the words back at the band. It’s music at its very best. It doesn’t matter whether it’s pop, rock or R’n’B, a good one makes everything better. However, it is possible to have too much ...

Soen - Lykaia

Review: Soen – Lykaia

We’ve hit a point in the world of rock and metal where brilliant guitarists fill every corner. The rise and fall of djent has left us with an abundance of uniquely gifted players, and technical metal is going through a bit of a heydey. If you are a guitar nerd, there is more than enough people making incredible noises out ...
