  • Chiller – S/T

    Chiller – S/T

    There is a weird coldness to Chiller's sound, making their moniker surprisingly apt. Featuring member's of Feral Trash, Black Tower and Mother's Children this Canadian four-piece are a somewhat of a super-group in the deep underground of the punk rock world. A film-noir cloak envelops Chiller; from their quirky, irregular sound...

    Ampwrecked 15: New music for your ears

    As The Bronx famously said, "New Year, New Me..." let's kick things off by looking at the upcoming tracks, singles and random noises that are being kicked around at the moment as we stage dive headfirst into the devil that is 2018 - see you in the pit, bring your shinpads, a packet of biscuits, thermos flask and your all Rush mixtape. ...

    We've already talked about my top 10 albums of the year, so let's focus on the top 10 songs of the year. All guaranteed to be absolute bangers, if not, I'll send Tiger Crew round your house to have a word. (YEEEEEAAAHHHHH) Enjoy...

    Lizard Hips – Top 10 albums of 2017

    My top 2 will not surprise some people and it's mostly business as usual. Some returning bands and truly outstanding work all round from nearly everyone that's released an album this year that I've enjoyed. Even albums that didn't make the top ten (sorry Pissed Jeans, you're in at 11...) were stonking great. Enjoy. ...

    Dodge Meteor – Real Soon Now

    Where some artists create with paint, feelings or whatever, Dodge Meteor create with riffs and by create I mean splatter everywhere in a turbo-blast of raw, bleeding power. Guitars howl and morph into each other through a colourful spectrum of bending chaos, whilst the crunching percussion hammers a thick, marching beat of dread...

    THANK – Sexghost Hellscape

    This is a Hieronymus Bosch painting in musical form that's started to melt into a sickening puddle of smoldering wax, wires and decay. Subjecting yourself for more than 20 minutes of this will send you fucking insane. Boiling, bubbling, mutated flesh, that's where we're coming from. I feel sick...

    JOHN – God Speed In The National Limit

    Being able to find stuff is overrated anyway. JOHN (comprised of John on drums and vocals and John on guitar) are, I'm guessing, more deadpan than a churchyard full of deceased cooking pots. They know the joke and are sticking with it and why should they crack a face to please you? ...

    The Bronx – V

    If one photo summed up The Bronx, it's in underlay card on this, their fifth album. It shows vocalist and professional "bear impersonating a man" Matt Caughthran, standing in the middle of a circle pit, microphone in hand, ready to scream some immortal and terrifying word to signal the rest of his band to collapse this ring of people in on itself. ...

    METZ – Strange Peace

    METZ hit the ground running, or rather, absolutely demolish all barriers with the teeth-rattling barrage that is Mess Of Wires. This is more a freight train continuously building in speed and chattering noise, as the drumming of Hayden Menzies is an almost direct parallel to the sound of clattering wheel rails, chewing to pieces everything in its path. ...
