Sheffield is a breeding ground for a diverse yet interlinked community of bands, styles and scenes. This split between Best Friends and Grazes proves that bands on the opposite end of the spectrum in terms of sound can come together to release this EP. This split contains the work of house mates who share everything from their gear to their food. This split almost acts as the documentation to that house and the people who live there.

Rating:

WHY? are a band that fit into no categories but their own. With their hip-hop/rock and a little bit of indie sounds all blended into one, it’s difficult to describe someone to compare them to. But, nonetheless, their dynamic and unique sound is one that is highly favourable, and their new EP ‘Sod In The Seed’ is a collection of six songs that prove just that.

Rating:

The first thing you notice about The Better Letters with their new EP ‘Play It Straight’ is that there are only three songs, which is arguably quite a small number for an EP and could be classed as a borderline demo. But, nonetheless, it’s all about quality and not quantity, right?

ALBUM: Carcer City – The Road Journals

Release Date: August 13th, 2012
Label: Unsigned
Website: www.carcercity.co.uk

Twitter: www.twitter.com/carcercity

Rating:

Carcer City are a progressive metalcore band hailing from Wirral and Liverpool, birthing the self-proclaimed genre ‘scouse metal’. This is possibly a reflection of their earlier sound; well-centred around the brutality and technicality of old Architects and Johnny Truant. With their new, free-to-download album ‘The Road Journals’, Carcer City have shifted from that into a more experimental, less consistent sound, but with some good to show for it.

ALBUM: House Vs. Hurricane – Crooked Teeth

Rating:

After a shift in personnel and instrumentation, House Vs. Hurricane are back in the game with their sophomore release, ‘Crooked Teeth’. With songs that move from the down-and-dirty to shimmering highs, there’s plenty to sink your teeth into, with the battle between new frontman Dan Casey‘s growl and guitarist Ryan McLerie‘s polished vocals pushing the contrast in styles even further. Yet, it seems that with album number two, HvH may have bitten off more than they can chew.

Rating:

Californian five-piece technical death metal band The Faceless have well and truly pushed themselves to the top of the game with their latest offering, ‘Authothesim’. The band’s third album is based around a concept derived from the album’s title; Authothesim is defined as as the worship of oneself and the belief of possession of a greater power.
