We Rise The Tides - Death Walk

We Rise The Tides - Death Walk

24.03.2014 | Alexander.s | 0 Comments

We Rise The Tides have put out a very safe and only half-decent release here. 'Death Walk' is one of those average albums that crosses between modern metalcore and deathcore, so you'll see a bit of key/synth sections, lots of alternating dual vocals, low-tuned chuggs, and plenty of the genres mixing and performance clichés. Ergo, you won't be surprised or impressed much here unfortunately.

Wolves Like Us - Black Soul Choir

This is like more refined stoner rock, with careful attention paid to the structures of the songs. Basically Wolves Like Us are brilliant songwriters who fully understand which colours need be used to move you.

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,

Within Temptation - Hydra

Within Temptation - Hydra

18.01.2014 | h0lywood | 0 Comments

Within Temptation's latest album, 'Hydra,' is filled with the solid elements that they are so well known for, with their solid riffs, beautiful orchestration and the knock out vocals of Sharon den Ade. This album is all the best parts of Within Temptation but it still manages to build on their past sound, creating something new.

So after a quarter of million dollars wasted on this album, you'll feel let down. There is next to no energy on this record. Quite simply, it will lose your attention quick. There's no doubt We the Kings will lose some fans. That being said, the fourteen year old girls will love it.

All in all, if We the Machine were a straight hardcore band with no clean singing or synth, you'd be more inclined to buy all their merchandise in one go. The heaviness of this album is done well. It will make for some great energy live. However, the melody drags everything down. It creates this dull and stale atmosphere around the songs, which cloud over the good bits. This band has potential, you can see it in there. Like a lot of bands, the band needs to find the balance of what works well because this balance didn’t suit.

Watain's new album 'The Wild Hunt' shows a level of progression and experimentation from the band, while still encorperating their much loved black metal sounds. There are slower elements throughout the record that may appeal to larger audiences. It's "modern black metal.'

Woe Is Me's 'American Dream' is essentially for fans only. While the record has some memorable moments, the most distinct occuring in the form off kick of track 'Stand Up', it's a shame the band couldn't keep it up for the entirety of the EP.

William Beckett - Genuine and Counterfeit

William Beckett - Genuine and Counterfeit

11.08.2013 | TashS | 0 Comments

Beckett has so much potential to stretch the capabilities of his voice and of his song writing, and although we see little snippets of his potential in 'Genuine and Counterfeit', it's not enough to make the impact it should. There’s not a lot to attract, if anything really, the alternative listener who seeks something apart from the predictability of radio tunes. Having said this, if Beckett is making a move into the mainstream he certainly went about it the right way.

Dead Letter Circus have faced the all too common challenge of living up to the standards set by a standout album. For that reason, 'The Catalyst Fire' is a solid addition to the band’s collection of sounds rather than what can often turn out to be a bit of a disappointment.
