ALBUM REVIEW: Cradle of Filth bring glorious gothic terror to bear on Cryptoriana IF ‘Hammer of Witches’ proved that Cradle of Filth had regained their edgy artistic mojo then new release ‘Cryptorian’ shifts them up to another level entirely. This is the marriage of previous musical excesses and a true sense of gothic terror – not in the mainstream sense of ‘goths’ but reaching into the dark labyrinthine murk of Victorian streets, where danger and sensuality stand side-by-side. ‘Cryptoriana’ is a tapestry of lust and evil delivered with all that you would expect from Dani and co. Apart...

HOW DARE YOU new album  release date 13.10.17 [Metropolis Records] Thirteen. It’s a really lucky number. When you turn thirteen you get to have a bar mitzvah.  That’s the definition of lucky. Want another example? If you live on the thirteenth floor of an  apartment building, you get to tell people you live on the fourteenth floor, and this allows you to come off like a slightly higher roller. You see where we are going with this? Thirteen is not bad  at all…nay, it’s good! Name a band that has made thirteen albums besides Sparks. You can’t do it.  Now you can.  Electric Six joins the lucky thirteen club with their new release ‘How Dare...

ALBUM REVIEW: Godsmack’s Sully Erna takes us down an enjoyable middie of the road journey on Hometown Life GODSMACK have sold millions of album, but what some fans have missed is the solo work of singer and guitarist Sully Erna. The talented front man is about to release his latest solo effort ‘Hometown Life’ (September 29th) and it is a massive departure from the sound of Godsmack. Indeed, on first listen it is a middle of the road release so beloved of American bands trying to gain wider airplay. That initial listen almost makes Nickleback seem edgy, but then when you delve deeper this is varied and raw. Narrative...

ALBUM REVIEW: Peter and the Test Tube Babies on form with That Shallot EVER since Peter and the Test Tube Babies released their song ‘The Queen Gives Good Blow Jobs’ we knew they were something special. Although bundled along with the likes of Splodgenessabounds’ they were more straightforward and felt more ‘punk’. Their irreverent lyrics were offset with tight precise writing – favouring the short, sharp tight arrangements. Over the years they have not mellowed despite growing older. If anything they sound more bitter – and that’s not a bad thing in context. With the imminent release of new...
