UK duo Slaves are here to prove that punk’s not dead and boy, oh boy have they been doing just that.  With a solid catalogue of harsh bluesy guitar riffs from Laurie Vincent coupled with the energetic drumming and fierce social commentary of Isaac Holman’s lyrics these guys are making sure that people don’t forget the heyday of the UK punk scene.

They’ve been pumping out release after release of cracking material since 2012 and this year sees them offer up the short-but-oh-so...

Sydney metallers Northlane just seem to go from strength to strength, between their crushing live show and the ever-increasing quality of each studio release there’s just no stopping this runaway train. After surprise-dropping their fourth studio album, Mesmer, in 2017, the lads have wasted no time in getting back to work and this year sees the release of their fifth, and arguably best, effort Alien.

The album starts out strong with a hard electro-bass intro to opening track Details Matter makin...

Frank Iero returns this year with yet another cracking album, this time under the moniker of Frank Iero & The Future Violents. Barriers marks the third solo outing for the prolific musician who spent the better part of his career as rhythm guitarist for emo kings My Chemical Romance.

The gospel-esque A New Day’s Coming opens the album with it’s organ intro accompanied by Iero’s signature off-key vocals, something which only a handful of singers can really pull off, Iero most certainly being o...

Melbourne’s prog-rock titans Circles have been riding high on the success of their sophomore release, The Last One and are about to head out and play a string of shows across Australia and New Zealand in support of the album. Ben had a chat with guitarist Ted Furuhashi about the writing of the album and the joys of touring.

The Last One has been out for the better part of a year now and also cracked over 1 million streams on Spotify alone. How does it feel to have such an amazing body of work...

Superheist have quite the history in the Australian rock/metal scene. Having fought their way through the thick of it since the early 90’s, no matter how many times they get knocked down they just keep coming back stronger than ever. Boasting what is arguably the best lineup in the bands history (held firmly together by founding member DW Norton), they have just unleashed their 4th studio album upon the world and let me tell you, it is well worth your time.

The album begins with lead single The...

Thrice are heading down under for their first run of shows in nearly 11 years on the back of their latest critically acclaimed release Palms. Ben had a chat with front man Dustin Kensrue about the tour, writing on the road and keeping the band fresh after all these years. 

Check it out HERE: 

Throughout their 20-year career, THRICE have remained committed to pushing

creative boundaries, re-writing the rule books with each release to become one of the most innovative and ambitious rock bands of the...

Recipe for the perfect rock group: take 2 parts Fall Out Boy, add one part Anthrax, one part Alkaline Trio and a generous helping of Every Time I Die. Mix well in a studio until combined and then unleash the beast upon the world! “Fall Out Boy? Anthrax? Every Time I Die?” I hear you say, potentially with disgust. But the answer is a resounding, “Oh hell yeah!”

Separately, the sum of The Damned Things’ parts have been extremely successful in the realms of pop, punk and metal and this melting p...

Southfield, Michigan’s I Prevail are a bit of a buzz band at the moment, which, if I’m being completely honest, deterred me from listening to them. But in the end I was only letting myself down because these guys have the chops to prove their worth and they show you why on their latest release Trauma.

Busting straight out of the gates with opening track Bow Down, I Prevail waste no time in showing off their metalcore mastery with a crushing guitar riff and the high-class venom-spitting of co-v...

Things have been stirring at camp InMe of late, with the band steadily increasing their live presence and front man Dave McPherson’s return to social media preceding the announcement of a new album due out early in 2019. And we have our first taste of what to expect from said album with the first single, For Something To Happen, dropping this week. 

In a logical progression from their last album Trilogy: Dawn, it’s a track adorned with bright guitars and beautiful harmonies layered on top a sol...
