Twin Forks - Twin Forks

Twin Forks - Twin Forks

25.02.2014 | LukeC | 0 Comments

While we appreciate the fact the we are all getting older, I don't feel comfortable with Chris Carraba, who soundtracked my youth, reminding me of it with music of this kind. He sounds more comfortable in Twin Forks than ever before, and it is a great album full of well written songs, but personally we're not quite ready to resign to the rocking chair on the front porch just yet.

Saving Grace - The Urgency

Saving Grace - The Urgency

Hardcore kids and metalheads alike will get a lot out of this album. It isn't quite as impressive as some of the the genre's heavyweights, but 'The Urgency' will hopefully garner the band a slew of new fans and open up a lot more opportunities for this New Zealand five-piece.

A debut EP worth the attention of an LP of a band twice their stature, In Vein is an impressive example of what local bands can do in the punk scene.

Caliban - Ghost Empire

Caliban - Ghost Empire

Ghost Empire is an energetic and enjoyable album. While overall the guitar work is simple and at times it's generic metalcore, the full-length is full of energy with rough, growling and quite masculine vocals, and some intense breakdowns. All this combined, Caliban manage to create a solid album.

Bear Hands - Distraction

Bear Hands - Distraction

21.02.2014 | LukeC | 0 Comments

This may well be Bear Hands' most interesting work so far. It is a change in the band's dynamic and a statement from musicians who are not too worried about pushing some musical boundaries and ignoring the rules of genre.

Iced Earth - Plagues Of Babylon

Iced Earth - Plagues Of Babylon

19.02.2014 | h0lywood | 0 Comments

'Plagues Of Babylon' is one of Iced Earth's best works over their more recent career. Their new vocalist manages to recreate their original sound while the complimentary killer guitar riffs all go together to make something enjoyable. While it might not win album of the year, these guys have managed to step up their game.

Vales - Wilt & Rise

Vales - Wilt & Rise

'Wilt & Rise' is a great debut because it explains the unique vibe of Vales’ music in detail, without overstaying its welcome. The way the band make the light and dark work in conjunction with each other is commendable and refreshing, Vales are certainly a band to watch.

The Hotelier - Home, Like Noplace Is There

The Hotelier - Home, Like Noplace Is There

17.02.2014 | Matt.S | 0 Comments

Lethargically beautiful, passionately emotional and melodically captivating, 'Home, Like No Place Is There' is one of the best albums you'll hear in a long time. It soars along, whether at a slow, mid-tempo or screaming pace, leaving tear stains, joy and amazement in its tracks. With enough press, The Hotelier can lead this emo-revival to the heights that its fans are waiting for.

Modern Baseball - You're Gonna Miss It All

Modern Baseball - You're Gonna Miss It All

16.02.2014 | TashS | 0 Comments

'You’re Gonna Miss It All' may be short tempered and at times insolent, but it’s the final track ‘Pothole’ where lyrics like ‘I can be everything you need...I can be easily deceived’ bares the kind of vulnerability that makes this band so loveable. This record is a fairly substantial step ahead of the game for Modern Baseball, who should prepare for some serious attention in 2014.

We Are The In Crowd  - Weird Kids

We Are The In Crowd - Weird Kids

14.02.2014 | Matt.S | 0 Comments

We Are the In Crowd have stopped playing around and ripping off Paramore's sound and have made their own brand that is definitely something unique nowadays. This is not so much a pop-punk album but more of a straight up rock record. It's powerful, energetic and catchy and also takes many influences from a range of artists like You Me At Six, Young Guns and Tonight Alive. 'Weird Kids' is without a doubt the band's best work to date and it will certainly bring them not just into the light, but centre stage spotlight. Clocking in at just over thirty minutes, it's a short and sweet album as opposeD to a long drawn out offering that takes days to get through,
