INTERVIEW: Holding Absence (07/05/2017)

With just two singles to their name, ‘Permanent’ and ‘Dream Of Me’, it’s incredible that Holding Absence have managed to secure a place as one of the freshest faces on the SharpTone Records roster. Indeed, after a few member changes, and a bit of a reinvention of themselves, the Welsh outfit seem to be one of the more talked about underground post-hardcore bands of the UK right now.

INTERVIEW: Bury Tomorrow (15/04/2017)

It’s undeniable that certain pockets of the metal and heavy music community are subject to a horde of elitist fans, unhappy with any band that even slightly sits outside the borders of what they feel should be classified as “real metal”. Such criticisms and attacks seem to draw towards some bands more than others, and it’d be ignorant to say that Southampton’s Bury Tomorrow haven’t been subject to such pig-headed viewpoints from the metal community throughout their now over decade long career.

INTERVIEW: Loathe (21/04/2017)

It was only a couple of years ago that British conceptually driven heavy hitters Loathe were just another small local band with one self-released EP to their name, but from the beginning their crux was their comfort to be shrouded in mass amounts of enigma, and that steadily started to build them a hefty fanbase. A few months later, the band secured a deal with SharpTone Records.

INTERVIEW: Real Friends (13/04/2017)

Illinois’ own Real Friends released their sophomore album ‘The Home Inside My Head’ last year and scheduled a headline tour across the UK to follow in December. Unfortunately, due to health concerns, the band decided it was best to postpone to make sure they’re right and healthy before heading on over.

INTERVIEW: He Is Legend (12/04/2017)

North Carolina’s finest hard rockers He Is Legend are about to release their long awaited fifth record ‘few’ before popping over to the UK for a string of headline dates to support their dark and heavy return.

We managed to catch-up with frontman Schuyler Croom to talk about all things ‘few’, including why they decided to start a crowdfunding campaign, how the recording process took shape, and how rock bands can learn from the music industry when it comes to releasing albums.

INTERVIEW: Attila (05/04/2017)

Currently over on UK shores as part of a headline tour run around Europe to promote their latest full-length record, ‘Chaos’, we had an exclusive little chat with Attila frontman Fronz to talk about what their favourite things are about hitting the UK, including their addiction to Nando’s for their spicy food fix, and the “pub culture”.

INTERVIEW: Betraying The Martyrs (21/02/2017)

French extreme metallers Betraying The Martyrs returned with their explosive third record ‘The Resilient’ back in January this year, continuing their extreme onslaught of metalcore and deathcore. Plenty has changed since the success of their sophomore album ‘Phantom’ so we caught up with vocalist Aaron Matts to chat about the new songs, the impact of their Disney ‘Let It Go’ cover, the Paris terror attacks and the strength of the French metal scene.

INTERVIEW: Blood Youth (30/03/2017)

You’re all in for a massive treat on April 7th, as Harrogate melodic hardcore mob Blood Youth are going to release their debut record, ‘Beyond Repair’. Bigger riffs than the heaviest of the hardcore scene and sing-a-longs to compliment the best of pop-punk songs, Blood Youth can do it all on their new record, so we had a chat with frontman Kaya Tarsus who ran us through his thoughts behind the record and what the band have planned for the rest of the year.

INTERVIEW: Pulled Apart By Horses (24/03/2017)

Leeds alternative rockers Pulled Apart By Horses are back. The eccentric band have just put out their fourth full-length album, ‘The Haze’, that shows their creative craziness at its very best. To celebrate the band going out on tour to support the release, we caught up with guitarist Tom Hudson to chat about the new record, different types of shows, and whether that band name gives them any hassle.

INTERVIEW: Imminence (15/03/2017)

Sweden is not without its fair share of great exports from the world of rock, punk, and metal. Refused, Opeth, In Flames, The Hives, and Meshuggah are just a small handful of great acts from the Swedes, and it looks like Trelleborg/Malmö based outfit Imminence are planning to join their ranks with their forthcoming LP, ‘This Is Goodbye’.
