Plymouth’s Brotherhood Of The Lake are nastier than Abu Hamza on MD. Volume two of their tale of hate is the second helping of ‘Desperation Is The English Way’. If you’re looking for a soundtrack to feed the ducks at the pond to, this is not it.
Up-and-coming Plymouth metal troupe Brotherhood Of The Lake have just announced four headline dates this May. Check them all out below:
With the end of one year comes the start of another. It’s undeniable that 2012 was a great year for rock and alternative music as a whole, but with a quick overlook of what is to come and what bands are on the verge of rising from the underground, it seems 2013 might even surpass the previous 12 months. We have listed all of the bands we think you should keep your eyes on throughout this year so you can get in there before they become ‘uncool’ or just so you’re ahead of the pack. See into the future:

Date: August 18th, 2012
Venue: The Underground, Stoke-on-Trent
Support: Atmospheres / Palm Reader / Brotherhood Of The Lake
Website: None available
A grey Stoke afternoon extends across the venue, the mood quiet and sulky. With doors open, there are but a handful of people that aren’t a member of a band or a part of their entourage outside The Underground, a favourite venue of Stoke. With this scene all too familiar, there isn’t so much a feeling of disheartening, but just being used to the (let’s face it) dire state of the UK music scene at the moment.
Date: August 3rd, 2012
Venue: Hevy Festival, Kent
Interviewer: Jack Bastard
With the recent release of their second full-length record, ‘Desperation Is The English Way Vol. 1′, killing all of its competition, the anticipation surrounding Brotherhood Of The Lake‘s performance at this year’s Hevy Festival is very almost painful. Whilst we were at the festival weekend, we decided to catch up with the band plus their stand in bassist for the day, Andy Gillan of Palm Reader fame, to talk about the album, their festival performance and why they’re not a hardcore band:
There’s not many festivals out there who are situated near the grounds of a wild animal park (or, simply a zoo), let alone also supply a full weekend worth of some of the most talented punk, rock and hardcore bands that are around today. With a small and intimate festival site to boot, Hevy is easily one of the best independent weekend music festivals the UK has to offer. We went along to catch all the bands, the animals and the partying they had to offer:
Tags: Acoda, Blacklisters, Broken Teeth, Brotherhood Of The Lake, Deaf Havana, Deez Nuts, Desolated, Gnarwolves, Hevy Festival, Last Witness, Lower Than Atlantis, Marmozets, Napoleon, Never Means Maybe, The Bots, The James Cleaver Quintet, Trapped Under Ice

With less than two weeks to go until Hevy Festival kicks off, a final nine more bands have just been confirmed to join the weekend line-up, which includes Brutality Will Prevail and more. All newly confirmed acts are listed below:
Ghostfest is Leeds’ annual celebration of the very best and most exciting bands that the hardcore and metal scene has to offer today. Now in its seventh year, the festival has come from humble beginnings to one of the most anticipated events on the UK festival circuit. Bunking up to an extra third stage for this year’s festivities, and therefore a shed load of bands, we headed there to catch on some music intensity.
To coincide with the upcoming release of their self-titled album (released September 10th), Gallows have announced a full headline tour of the UK this October. All dates are below:
Firstly, I’d like to point out that I won’t be using words like ‘dark’, ‘evil’ or ‘raw’. I’d really like to, but that would be far too obvious. What I will say is this: From the outset this record is unsettling, opening to screeching feedback which remains a constant theme throughout, returning to haunt you again and again.
Date: March 12th, 2012
Venue: Retro Bar, Manchester
Support: Wolves, The Catharsis, Cowards, The Orchard
Deep in the dark underground room that is the Retro Bar, five highly pissed off bands are forced into a corner and made to play for our amusement. The results are somewhat spectacular as well as a tad disturbing. This was a night of hardcore/post-hardcore at its finest, with a group of the UK’s up-and-coming bands pushing their limits and proving their worth.
Annual Leeds-based festival Ghostfest have confirmed a further nine bands who’ll performing over the festival weekend this year, joining the likes of Emmure, POLAR. and Defeater. All newly confirmed bands are outlined below:
