Unfortunately, being the band’s swan song, it would be fair to anticipate something a little special from The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza before they call it a day. Although always embracing a sound that is as abrasive and technically scathing as any modern metal you can name, ‘Danza IIII: The Alpha – The Omega’ delivers such a glut of unbridled sonic violence which, amongst other untrodden touches, sees the album act as a rather stellar adieu.

After 12 long years, these New York punk rockers are still going and they’re stronger than ever having proved so with their latest release, ‘Killing Time’. To keep the fans satisfied between records, Bayside have whisked up a little EP of covers. This is a great idea because not only will it bridge the gap between albums, but is also means that they have some covers in the bag for their live shows.

Rating:

With influences including Asking Alexandria and The Devil Wears Prada, this short self-titled EP from Sheffield’s Fates Upon Us begins exactly how one would expect with ‘Don’t Hate The Player, Hate The Game’. Chugs galore occurs before high-end screams pierce the eardrums of suspecting listeners. The standard ‘metalcore’ riff ensues before some clean vocals make an appearance in the chorus. Standard boring procedure.
