Rating:

Portland’s Red Fang are a prime example that hard work and dedication will pay off in the end. Ten years of graft and honing their sound has culminated in world tours and three mighty fine albums, with the fourth, ‘Only Ghosts’, being of equal stature.

Rating:

2016 didn’t start too positively for American metal heavyweights, Avenged Sevenfold. After being sued for trying to leave then-record label Warner Bros. due to personnel changes within the label since the band had signed to them, this restricted the band from the planned release of a DVD featuring live appearances from Download Festival and Rock In Rio.

ALBUM: Waterparks – Double Dare

Rating:

Waterparks have burst onto the scene with their debut album, ‘Double Dare’, a record as catchy as it is hollow. In paying musical homage to some of their favourite bands of pop-punk past, they’ve found it difficult to create their own distinctive sound, instead delivering an assorted chocolate box of sugary sweet songs that rattle off one after the other with almost no threads linking them.

Rating:

Break-ups of successful bands will always spawn the inevitable solo projects and the musicians will be forever compared to their past glories, and when members of a band as sizeable as My Chemical Romance get back out there then all eyes will be glued to them like hawks.

EP: Up River – If There Is A God That Is Judging Me Constantly

Rating:

Some bands are game-changers. Brighton’s Up River are not one of those bands. Instead, they’re game dominators. Past releases have prominently featured gorgeous melodic post-hardcore drenched in ethereal reverb that seamlessly immersed you into their sound, akin to the likes of La Dispute.

Rating:

It’s been a turbulent few years for Richmond’s Lamb Of God, particularly for vocalist, Randy Blythe. After being arrested in Prague on June 27th 2012, for pushing a fan off the stage who hit his head on the floor and later died of his injuries, the band subsequently incurred a 2 year break from touring and recording.

Three years after the release of ‘Mechanical Bull’, Tennessee rock band Kings Of Leon are back with their seventh studio album. ‘WALLS’ (a.k.a. ‘We Are Like Love Songs’) continues the band’s unwritten rule of having five-syllable album titles.

Rating:

Metalcore denarians The Devil Wears Prada are back with ‘Transit Blues’, a record about travelling which agonises over the distances created, while also celebrating the adventure promised. Through 11 incredible metalcore tracks, the listener is treated to a fly-by of the entire world as the band sees it, as though they were a passenger on the tour bus. Rarely has homesickness been so listenable.

Rating:

Kent duo Slaves are back with their critically acclaimed new album ‘Take Control’, and it’s everything that we wanted it to be following ‘Are You Satisfied?’ a mere 15 months ago. ‘Take Control’ was produced by none other than Mike D a former Beastie Boy, who also makes a cheeky little appearance on the album too.
