    Catalan! – Alive

    You may remember back in the sunny days of July, we had a feature and interview with a certain Mr Ewen Friers, aka Catalan! talking all about the creation of the project, hopes for the future, collaborations and whether he's a Dr Ian Malcolm or David Levinson kind of guy. ...

  • The Bronx – V

    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. ...

    Perturbator – New Model

    France's Perturbator is a tricky customer. In a world that now seems dominated by night-driving, synthwave soundtracks, it's refreshing when that genre is altered somewhat. Like smearing perfectly applied make-up - it turns from something pristine and elegant to a distorted and chaotic smear. Oh, it can still look good, but the alteration will leave a lasting impression. ...

    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. ...

    Down I Go – Mortals

    Brilliantly self-described as "Drunk Wikipedia Farming" (aka, the kings of concept-core) the Stockholm/Illinois/Toronto trio that is Down I Go still exist as a band. Despite them all living in different countries, the simple matter of distance, time and space isn't going to stop them from creating music...

    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!...

    Arnocorps – The Unbelievable EP

    The Greatest Band Of All Time still remains the most factually correct album title in existence. Yes, those Austrian-American rock 'n roll action pioneers, Arnocorps are back in new EP form, Unbelievable, right? WRONG! TOTALLY BELIEVABLE, EXACTLY!...

    Mutoid Man – War Moans

    Opening track Melt Your Mind couldn't be more aptly titled - it's a shred of riotous, unhinged energy that bubbles, bursts and roars. In just over 2 minutes, it's slams home a vibrant blast of melodic metallic punk leaving your jaw on the floor. This is swiftly followed by the drum-happy clatter of Bone Chain, which sounds like Van Halen writing a pop song for Kvelertak...
