    Holy Fuck – Congrats

    What drives Holy Fuck? Pure rhythm, hammered out at chest-caving speed. There are moments on Congrats where Holy Fuck do sound as if they're dragging music from the same realm Adebisi Shank acquired their inspiration and zealous, technicolour radiation of future-space-rock. ...

  • Ultra Panda – The New Bear EP

    Ultra Panda – The New Bear EP

    Still remaining in relative obscurity; France's Ultra Panda still haven't broken out of the underground. In fact, I'm betting they're even too obscure for the underground; they're hidden in the Upside Down. This group, comprising of three dudes, combine drums + bass + keys + voice to create their dizzy and turbulent sound...

    On Ampwrecked: The Dillinger Escape Plan continue their unpredictability, Beach Slang and The Menzingers fly the flag for passionate punk rock, Red Fang are gloomy as hell, Every Time I Die are insane and Naked Giants just want to surf. ...

    Lonely The Brave – Things Will Matter

    There are moments when music really does touch you. That burning, emotional rush that feels like it will engulf you in its flames. Lonely The Brave live these moments every time they pick up their collective instruments and no-one more so than vocalist David Jakes, a man, who is beginning to emerge from his chrysalis. Hell, he stood at the front - the FRONT of the stage last time I saw them...

    The Display Team – Shifts

    The Display Team are a sextet of macabre carnival characters, driven by wild, hectic, frenzied energy and are a fiery and exhilarating rush from start to finish. Shifts is their second record (it's been 7 years since their first, Drones) and proof that the band isn't dead. ...

  • Palehorse – Looking Wet In Public

    Palehorse – Looking Wet In Public

    Palehorse are fuckin' dead. Although nowadays, splitting up is akin to going on a long trip somewhere, only to return 18 years later with a beard and a new hairstyle, still rocking the same moves (hi Refused!) But what of Palehorse? 16 years doing this shit, few line up changes, several albums down the line, sometimes it's just the time to bow out and let someone else take the reigns...

    Kvelertak – Nattesferd

    Ah, I thought I could see the silhouette of an owl in the sky...somewhere in the ice-clad mountains of Stavanger, Norway, six mighty warriors have broken free, scraped the cold from their beards and checked shirts, grabbed their weapons (4 guitars, a drum kit and a mic) and have returned to bring the rock 'n roll metal party train back...

    Halfway mark – top tracks of 2016 so far

    As we reach the halfway point of this bonkers year, it's time to recap on some of the best tracks/noises/sounds/farting through a walkman we've heard at Keep It Fast towers this year. Join us on this voyage, where I sort of repeat stuff you've perhaps already read, but that doesn't matter as we're just killing time at the moment...

  • Tvivler – Negativ Psykologi #2

    Tvivler – Negativ Psykologi #2

    I like Tvivler's press release. This Copenhagen four-piece aren't afraid to poke fun at themselves or state how fucking self-humiliating/dreadful/sarcastic press releases can be. The fact is, this is DIY-to-the-core group of miscreants, recorded this EP in their own studio and self-released off their own backs...

  • Reasons why you should watch the unaired pilot of Two Minutes To Late Night

    Reasons why you should watch the unaired pilot of Two Minutes To Late Night

    What do you get if you combine the idea for a talk show that doesn't take itself seriously, a thrash metal house band, copious amounts of drinking, Ben Weinman, lots of corpse paint and pointless weather reports? Two Minutes To Late Night of course!...
