Album Review: Kill No Albatross “Speak True Evil” ‘Speak True Evil’, the new E.P from Canadian alt-rockers Kill No Albatross, is a snapshot of a band on the rise. Mixing elements of prog, rock and alternative metal music, the E.P., released July 13th, is a perfect entry point for listeners...

Album Review: Tymo –...

Album Review: Tymo – Purge & Reset Canadian thrashers “Tymo” released their second full length album, “Purge & Reset” in August 2017. Thrash is a genre with limitations. It’s got a very specific sound and any deviation from the norm is generally not accepted. This can make it...

Album Review: Broken Witt Rebels

Album Review: Broken Witt Rebels – Snake Eyes In 2016, Birmingham based Broken Witt Rebels, won “Unsigned Band Of the Year” at the Unsigned Music Awards. Since then, the bluesy rockers have signed with Snakefarm Records and released their eponymous debut album, as well as appearing at several high profile festivals. Now, they will be accompanying Reef on their UK tour in November, and are set to release their latest E.P. “Snake Eyes” on August 10th. The E.P. opens with the titular “Snake Eyes”. A doomy, bluesy opening riff underpins the vocalists hoarse, southern vocal tone. I was pretty shocked to find out that the band are actually from...

FLICKERTAIL – HURRY UP AND WAIT   Sydney’s Flickertail play “guitar-fuelled rock and roll” and after cutting their teeth and perfecting their sound in every pub in sight, they’ve released their debut EP (June 25th), “Hurry up and Wait” on Golden Robot Records.   The E.P opens with...

BARROS – MORE HUMANITY PLEASE

BARROS – MORE HUMANITY PLEASE   Paulo Barros, most notable for being the guitarist in the Power-Metal band “Tarantula” is set to release a new album with his solo project “Barros” on June 29th. “More Humanity Please” is melodic hard rock album perfect for fans of Whitesnake, Van halen or any other Classic hard rock bands.   The album emphasises simplistic structures and straightforward songs and you get this impression fairly early on. The first track, “My Everything” sums this idea up. It opens with a chuggy, driving riff, accompanied by obligatory “yeahs” over the intro. The song rolls along nicely before taking a step back in...

ALBUM REVIEW: Khemmis stretch themselves in wondrous Desolation release TAGS, genres, sub-genres, pigeon holes and definitions matter not a bit when a band stretches themselves beyond these. Such is the case with Khemmis as their third album, ‘Desolation’ comes roaring like a slow...

ALBUM REVIEW: Madball maul on For The Cause “You want the truth, start a revolution.” This is the declaration from Madball on ‘Rev Up’, the second track on their latest album ‘For The Cause’. And, this is a band that has emerged in 2018, furious, angry and...

NOT MY MASTER – DISO...

NOT MY MASTER – DISOBEY   El Paso, Texas based ‘Not My Master’ play brash, abrasive metal music. Very much an in your face, take no prisoners kind of band, it can be difficult to pinpoint their style, which draws from an extensive range of influences but primarily blends dirty thrashy...

Damaj – Ashen Path

  Damaj – Ashen Path Scottish thrashers Damaj have been very quiet for some time and the reason is their debut album Ashen Path. I have been a fan of this band since their EP “The Contract” arrived on my desk. From there I got to see them live pretty soon after and I cannot count how...

Black Coffee – Take ...

  Black Coffee – Take One OK, I am going to open with a massive frustration of mine as of late. I have no issue with the amount of talent out there today, the UK is full to bursting with amazing young bands but recently I am being inundated with fresh, brilliant and unsigned American...
