    Tigercub – Evolve Or Die

    Apparently, Evolve or Die, the new EP from Brighton's Tigercub, was influenced by a short story from Argentinian author George Louis Borge, called The Library of Babel. This tale is about a universe that consists of a library full of a series of hexagonal rooms containing the bare necessities for human survival. ...

    Ampwrecked 14: New Music For Your Ears

    Death From Above keep up with the wrestling theme. Propagandhi invite us for a drink. The Bronx go rock 'n roll. Unsane cover everything in blood. METZ destroy our ears through a mess of wires. And So I Watch You From Afar show off their new wings and Converge go completely brutal. ...

    The Lumes – Envy

    Whether the guitar on third track (Discharge) on this new EP from Rotterdam's The Lumes is being played remains to be seen. The long stretching, stream of feedback that emanates seems to indicate that it's been hurled into a speaker and left to pump out a noxious, squealing wail until the switch is finally flipped. Nice...

    Ewen Friers talks CATALAN! Axis Of, Travelling and avoiding Love Island!

    Those of you may remember from last year a feature on Axis Of, celebrating the release of their most recent live album, Companions. Whilst the band have been quiet of late, things have been bubbling below the surface for one of their members, bassist Ewen Friers, who is currently working on a new project, titled CATALAN!...

    PABST / Autisti – Split 7″

    Surely one of the best kept secrets in the underground music scene is CrazySane Records, right? This little Berlin-based label, run by Chris Breuer of ear-bothers HEADS. has been quietly releasing some great records, split 7" and EPs over the last few months and slowly building up a name for themselves...

    Donnie Willow – Exhibition

    From the squealing feedback of opener Stuck, Donnie Willow definitely have issues that would very much like to vent and they do so with swirling rage. The bass on this thumps and hums with gurgling ferocity, whilst guitarist Arthur Piddington, switches from Tubelord-esque vocal wails, to raging yelps of frustration...

    USA Nails – Sell Sell Sell EP

    What do USA Nails minus the frills sound like? Well, USA Nails really, but fighting one of those dance DJ machines in hell. Recorded partly in a rehearsal room and partly in vocalist Steve Hodson's home on a Yamaha MM30 cassette recorder; Sell Sell Sell is raw....just raw. When...

    Yagow – S/T

    Yagow are a vortex of sound with one goal in mind - absorbing and claiming everything within reach. This is best demonstrated on the mammoth 8 minute opener, Horsehead Nebula; a pulsating beast of hazy, cryptic guitar layers, see-sawing riffs and the kind of sprawling post-rock scuzz of journeying into the centre of a star that's about to explode. ...

    Idles – Brutalism

    Subtlety doesn't really exist to a band like Idles. Brutalism, their debut album, opens the door before you've had time to answer, staggers into your house, a blood-smeared hand caressing your walls, a half-drunk crate of beer under one arm and a look that's a cross between madness and euphoria...
