    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. ...

    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. ...

    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...

    Graf Orlock – Crime Traveler

    Stretched taunt over a 31 minute running time, Graf Orlock, brutalize and pulverise their instruments through an apocalyptic barrage of seething grind. They also reference tons and tons of other films as well (Arnie gets some terrific shout-outs) nothing is safe and neither are you from the Orlock attack...

    Blacklisters – Adult

    The bile that races through the veins of Leeds' Blacklisters is flecked with hundreds and thousands made out of spite and toxic laughter. Their concept of anything vaguely normal is an utterly redundant feeling - sounding like they've set fire to their instruments before they've started playing them...

    Do You Remember Us? The Blood Brothers are back

    So...good news it would seem. The Blood Brothers have decided that staying split up isn't for them and have got back together. Yes, Seattle's art-punk-hardcore-splatter merchants are to return; playing FYF Fest in Los Angeles, in August...

    Wild Throne – Blood Maker

    Hailing from Bellingham, Wild Throne are vibrant, technicoloured chaos. This chaos though, has for the most part, some structure - it doesn't feel totally thuggish, smashing things for the sake of smashing them; there's determination, relentless pace and twists and turns at every chord, every drum beat and every sung/screamed/whispered word...

    Worlds Scariest Police Chases – NOFX and Out Come The Wolves Dookie

    I can't work out if there's 6 or 7 people in this multi-headed hydra of shouting and cheap beer, but whoever the personnel are that make up Worlds Scariest Police Chases, they're having a better time than anyone else on the planet, and this, their second album, is proof of that. ...

    Baby Godzilla – Knockout Machine

    As the squealing, drawled feedback of opener A Good Idea Realised begins to bleed through, you can almost imagine the Baby G lot straining at their chains, aching to be free. The blood-frothing punk charge hits with the force of a truck; riffs are tearing and utterly demented, whilst the vocals are harsh hair-ripping, teeth-gnashing soundbites of frustration and madness...
