ALBUM REVIEW: Nervus – Everything Dies

Watford quartet Nervus have been taking the UK underground scene by storm ever since the release of their debut record ‘Permanent Rainbow’ in 2016 – a record that was filled with radio-friendly tracks that treaded on the bleaker and darker side of indie rock. The LP was incredibly well received, and what followed were a whirlwind couple of years which culminated in a slot on a UK tour with Creeper. Read More

ALBUM: Thirty Seconds To Mars – America

For the last sixteen years, Thirty Seconds To Mars have tested boundaries, transforming from their initial progressive/space rock direction of their self-titled debut to the acclaimed alt rock ‘A Beautiful Lie’, and eventually reaching the experimental, electronically driven pop-rock territory of ‘Love, Lust, Faith + Dreams’.

ALBUM: Bleed From Within – Era

Where have Bleed From Within been?! The Glaswegian bruisers seemed to enjoy a steady rise since the release of their debut album ‘Humanity’ back in 2009. Relentless touring and support slots with just about every big name on the circuit had them pinned as potential frontrunners in UK metalcore, until they practically dropped off the radar after their last EP ‘Death Walk’ a whole four years ago.

ALBUM: Press To MECO – Here’s To The Fatigue

For fans of Croydon three-piece Press To MECO, it might have felt as if a second album has taken an age to be released. The band’s last release was their debut LP ‘Good Intent’, which dropped back in 2015 and received a critical reception for its intricate riffs and alternative take on the hardcore genre. Snap forward three years and the band have for us ‘Here’s To The Fatigue’, but how does it fare as a follow-up and sophomore record? Read More

EP: Bad Wolves – False Flags: Volume One

There has a been a lot of experimentation with the rise of the digital market as the new platform for releasing music. It’s also true that there’s no real formula for success, with routes for release taken being your standard planned album drop, to being a free add-on with a magazine, and even the undeniable rise of tools like BandCamp and also crowdfunding campaigns. True success to get through the fog of music is the hardest thing of all with bands pressing to be the next visionaries of their genres. Read More

ALBUM: Black Foxxes – Reiði

Hailing from Exeter and offering a comprehensive and depressing take on modern rock, Black Foxxes write music that sets itself aside from a lot of other bands, and, as a follow-up to their debut ‘I’m Not Well’ in 2016, ‘Reiði’ is no exception. The title means “rage” in Icelandic, yet the album isn’t all-guns-blazing aggressive progressive rock at all. In fact, the album is so carefully orchestrated and wound together that it almost feels like it’s telling a story through a collection of ten melancholic and deep cuts. Read More
