  Album Review: Arborist – ‘Home Burial’ Reviewer: Bradley Worsman – Any album that houses beautiful messages within beautiful songs that make a beautiful track list, along with beautiful production and almost perfect lyrics would be concluded as a good album. Potentially even a...

Album Review: Jungle...

Reviewer: Craig Grant. Jungle City is a three piece Adelaide based band that released their third album, ‘Jungle City III’, at the end of 2016. This has come after the unsurprisingly titled, ‘Jungle City II’ and ‘Jungle City I’, but, thankfully, more thought has gone into the music than the...

Bonafide – Flames

  Bonafide – Flames Swedish band Bonafide are celebrating their 10th anniversary in 2017, and what better way is there to launch proceedings by releasing a new album and then embarking on a 14-date UK tour? They have set themselves a grueling target of 14 shows over two weeks all across the UK – our great island chosen by them for this tour because of the affinity they feel with our culture of beer, curry and the underground roots of rock music. Their new album ‘Flames’ will be released on Off Yer Rocka Recordings, and is something a bit different for Bonafide, having a gospel choir from South Sweden singing on a few songs,...

  Danko Jones – Wild Cat After a duration of twenty years, if you have not heard of the Canadian rock band Danko Jones, it is time you caught up with them in time for the release of their eight studio album, ‘Wild Cat’. ‘Wild Cat’ is the highly anticipated new...

Courtesans – Better ...

  Courtesans – Better Safe than Sober Courtesans may not yet be a name on the vista of rock music, but I am certain it soon will be. An all female band hailing from London, they formed in 2012 and together have blended their strong images and personalities to form a haunting mix of dark...

Anchor Lane – New Beginning So Rock world I give you Anchor Lane, a young and highly talented three piece from Glasgow. New Beginning is classed as their debut(although it isn’t really) but let’s take it at its merits and treat it as such. I have been avidly awaiting this release since I saw...

Annihilator – Triple Threat

  Annihilator – Triple Threat If you are into thrash metal, then you would have undoubtedly heard of Annihilator. They are one of Canada’s ‘Big 4’ thrash metal bands; having had a career spanning from 1984, with the legendary ‘Alice in Hell’ album in 1989, up to 2015’s ‘Suicide Society’. They have just completed a European tour (which I unfortunately missed) and are now currently on a US tour, before setting to work on their sixteenth studio album. ‘Triple Threat’ is their latest compilation album to tantalise the ears in the meanwhile, which will be released on January 27th...

Mike Ross’s new album ‘Jenny’s P...

  With Christmas now out of the way for another year, I am slowly getting back into the swing of things and returning to my routine of reviewing new music. For my first review of 2017 after the Christmas break, I chose Mike Ross’s new album ‘Jenny’s Place’ from the long backlog of albums for me to review. As I set it playing on my musical Bluetooth Christmas tree whilst I cooked my dinner (yes really), the first thing that struck me is how great the album is to jive to. The first track Bamboozled lulls you in with an easy-going intro and first verse, which has hints of Jace Everett encapsulated within. The...

  Album Review: RUSH – 2112 40th Anniversary “We would like to play for you side one from our latest album….this is twenty-one twelve”. That announcement on All the World’s a Stage was the sign to fold out the deckchair and rummage through the packed lunch as it was going to be a...

Album Review : Beast...

Album Review : Beasto Blanco – Beasto Blanco Beasto Blanco are back with album number two. The debut was a punch in the face with its industrial, gritty, raw and ballsy sound. It was unique and totally fresh and although I stumbled upon this band from my long term love of Alice Cooper it was...

  The Iron Eye – ‘Foreign Bodies’ EP. The Iron Eye is a three piece from Brisbane, Australia who have put together the, ‘Foreign Bodies’ EP due out on the 18th of November 2016. First thing you notice on this is the production value and the mix in particular. It has Tom Larkin of New...

  Album Review : Bad Touch – Truth Be Told Bad Touch are one of Britains hidden gems, They have been slogging it out, gigging away and accepting any and every support slot you can imagine. In fact I have seen these boys about four times in Glasgow in the last two years, the most recent...

  EP Review : Gone Savage – Resurrection This Three piece from Chorley have been around the block a bit which shows in the quality in this release. Gone Savage may not be a name people are familiar with outside their local area but with a top notch EP in Resurrection they are determined...
