    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...

    Ampwrecked: New tracks for your ears 10

    It's 2017! Let's kick off the new year with a few new-ish tracks or something! Plus, I needed a post to kickstart the website for 2017, as I'm not sure what to write about. Darko, Less Than Jake, GUG, Oak, Pulled Apart By Horses and Code Orange all step up to the plate and deliver some riffs/horns/more riffs. Enjoy. ...

    Lizard Hips’ Top 10 Albums of 2016

    I'm sure in many, many, MANY years, 2016 will be studied as the "what the hell happened in THAT year?" as a history module. 2017 has got to be better, right? Thankfully, there was some good music this year, amongst all the badness (Ken McCray dying was a total bummer and you know, the other stuff) so, what better way than countdown my top 10 albums of ...

    Liars Cult / Unrestrained / Great Reversals / Funerals – IV

    Straight out of the pit, Blasphemour Records have a real treat in store - a four way split, coming out on half ox blood, half mustard vinyl. Ox Blood? Someone form a band called that right now. Four bands contributing a track each, drawing power from various hardcore roots and featuring past members of several acts that will surprise you...

    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. ...

    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...

    HEADS. DOING. A. UK. TOUR.

    Purveyors of uncomfortable, scraping noise-rock that could melt through walls; Germany-meets-Australia's HEADS. are to return to the UK later on this month for a few shows, which is nice. Catch them at these venues creeping you out with their crunchy, face-clawing riffs...

    Head Wound City – A New Wave Of Violence

    Head Wound City have returned to the party and they've brought the fun and heaps of destruction ready to kick-start the failing heart. There's such an intimate, intense urgency to A New Wave of Violence - everything is so tightly wound up, like a million coiled springs that are suddenly released, ricocheting off everything with a cacophonous riot of explosive energy and wild frivolity...
