ALBUM REVIEW: Ghost – Prequelle

When Ghost’s nameless ghouls walked out of the band and then filed a lawsuit against enigmatic frontman Tobias Forge, it somewhat chipped away at the mystique that the cult heroes have become known for.

Welsh post-hardcore upstarts Dream State have been everywhere recently. Since signing with Australian label UNFD back in December, home to acts like Architects and Northlane, they’ve had airplay on BBC Radio 1, landed over five million views on YouTube, and bagged slots on just about every festival going, including The Great Escape, Download, and Slam Dunk. Not bad for a band that was still unsigned this time last year. Read More

Long gone are the days of their once signature guitar riffs and drums; it’s now all about the electronic sound. ‘Megaplex’ continues to push boundaries, and sees Keith Murray and Chris Cain build upon their ever-evolving sound.
