    Refused – Freedom

    You've got to admire the guts of these Swedes. Returning/reforming back in 2012 for some shows, which from all accounts from everyone who was lucky enough to see them have been "the best band I've ever seen." Then the announcement of going into the studio to record some more songs. ...

    Mutoid Man – Bleeder

    Well, if this doesn't punch a wet, viscera-coated hole through your chest, I don't know what will. Mutoid Man are Stephen Brodsky, Ben Koller and Nick Cageao. You'll be familiar with Brodsky - him of Cave In fame, making huge crushing space rock jams (Big Riff!), Koller briefly drummed for Cave In before becoming the stickman for noise-hardcore thrash-merchants Converge...

    HEADS. – A Mural Is Worth A Thousand Words

    I wrote a bit about HEADS. and their debauched bitterness and scathing mangled noise in this very review. So, why am I talking about them again? Well, they've gone and made a music video haven't they; for A Mural is Worth a Thousand Words, the first track from their debut self-titled record. ...

    METZ – II

    The kind of punishment drummer Hayden Menzies inflicts on his poor kit makes you wonder if he's got some boiling hatred burning inside for his particular piece of percussion. You see, on METZ's first album, cunningly titled METZ, he is the frontman of the band - or rather, his drum kit is - thumping out a barbaric and unrelenting cacophony from start to finish. ...

    Cal Banda – Another Minute Made Fiasco

    The only way to keep Cal Banda still would be to nail them to the floor. This Birmingham four piece have a collective attention span that can be measured in nano-seconds. Erratically charged, their debut EP, Another Minute Made Fiasco is four tracks of spasmodic fits and starts, rampant battle cries and shredding, nerve-racking disorder...

  • No Spill Blood – Heavy Electricity

    No Spill Blood – Heavy Electricity

    If heavy electricity falls from these headphones, not only would it blow my head off, it would cut me completely in half. The horror film hasn't been made that Heavy Electricity could soundtrack, but it's only a matter of time, as this, their first full-length, is truly the stuff of nightmares...

    Anakin – Celestial Frequency Shifter

    You could be forgiven for becoming lost within this – Anakin (a four piece from San Diego, who have an obvious love of all things lightsaber and Millennium Falcon) create a world with their sound that will envelop you, should you stumble your way into its enigmatic universe...
