I Am The Avalanche - Wolverines

I Am The Avalanche - Wolverines

23.03.2014 | RobFoster | 0 Comments

In the end, this isn’t really a groundbreaking album - but then again, does punk rock really set out to break ground? When looked at in the way that it’s created to be looked at, ‘Wolverines’ is a fantastic piece of work.

Chiodos - Devil

Chiodos - Devil

22.03.2014 | Matt.S | 0 Comments

Chiodos have crafted a record that not only has as many layers as a snake sheds in its livelihood, but is also as comfortable and homey as it needs to be to please the older fans. 'Devil' shows the different sides to the band all in the space of forty-five minutes. It swirls in its own atmosphere of melody, rock influence and post-hardcore energy that we know and love. With the background theatrical power to it, 'Devil' stands out as a bold, beautiful and breath-taking piece of art, just waiting to be admired.

Seahaven - Reverie Lagoon: Music For Escapism Only

Seahaven - Reverie Lagoon: Music For Escapism Only

22.03.2014 | Matt.S | 0 Comments

What will come as no surprise to anyone is that a review such as this might be quite polarising. There will be one half who agree with what's being said while the other will wholeheartedly disagree. But, that is the beauty of bands such as Seahaven. Although they have an acquired taste as such, it's a gentle reminder that musical aesthetic is held solely in the heart of the listener. Whether or not you like this album, respect and appreciation must be given to a Seahaven for crafting a full-length that feels unique in an otherwise suffocated scene. Although at times, it fails to captivate, the band proves they are more than capable of writing songs that hit the mark and win the championship.

I Am Heresy - Thy Will

I Am Heresy - Thy Will

21.03.2014 | h0lywood | 0 Comments

'Thy Will' is a powerful album with some raw emotion and aggression. It manages to convey its message well and is a great achievement from I Am Heresy. Their sound needs a little bit of work still but this album is a good one to listen to for fans of the genre. Nothing about this album feels fake or over thought, but rather it all feels like it is straight from the heart.

Memphis May Fire - Unconditional

Memphis May Fire - Unconditional

20.03.2014 | Matt.S | 4 Comments

It's not often you get an album such as 'Unconditional'. The album is raw and unrelenting, both Memphis May Fire's most melodic and heaviest work to date, it is also their best. The album has an incredible sonic-impact both on your ears and your heart. But, what makes this album what it is is the passion. It's that passion; that raw emotion; that animosity to craft an album that hits all the marks that makes a great album turn into an amazing album. This is metalcore at it's finest. This is, Memphis May Fire and this is their magnum opus.

Animals As Leaders  - The Joy Of Motion

Animals As Leaders - The Joy Of Motion

20.03.2014 | Alexander.s | 0 Comments

Animals As Leaders have once again delivered an incredibly diverse and textured package, one that is filled to the very brim with vastly technical and progressively experimental musicianship and performances. Musical teachers, professors and aficionados alike will bask in the glory of this band, and it's an album people will talk about for a very long time. Sure, 'The Joy Of Motion' isn't quite the defining classic that was their debut self-titled release, but it's a step up from its predecessor, 'Weightless'. This album proves exactly why Animals As Leaders are such a talked about band right now. Album four just can't come soon enough!

Dead In A Second - The Double Tribilo

'The Double Tribilo' is a relatively safe, but fun mini-album. It doesn't overstay its welcome and it shows off the various musical elements of the band to effortlessly and many a listener will walk away from this album feeling very content. Keep an eye on these blokes.

Various Artists - Punk Goes 90's Vol. 2

Various Artists - Punk Goes 90's Vol. 2

18.03.2014 | LukeC | 2 Comments

Punk Goes 90's Vol. 2 will probably go down as the least inventive of the series as the bands have barely attempted any sense of originality (that works) at all. Cover bands make more money than originals though, right?

Luca Brasi - By A Thread

Luca Brasi - By A Thread

17.03.2014 | TashS | 0 Comments

Luca Brasi exemplifies exactly what punk should be – a community. Their music evokes a clear sense of understanding and everything from the lyrics to the atmosphere of this record is relatable. On top of touring constantly and putting on shows that are explosive, it’s abundantly clear that Luca Brasi know exactly what they’re doing. To the relief of everyone who has ever been a fan of decent Aussie punk, the band aren’t quitting any time soon.

The Pretty Reckless - Going to Hell

The Pretty Reckless - Going to Hell

17.03.2014 | Matt.S | 3 Comments

After what was essentially a fantastic debut album, 'Going to Hell' is a very big let down. It's repetitive, lyrically-stupid and the lack of thought to the songs is prevalent all the way through. The same guitar riffs and fills only serve to make what already comes off as poorly written even worse. In fact, the only thing this album really has going for it is that it opens up with Momsen making sex noises. That's saying something.
