    The Turin Horse – S/T

    Who the fuck are The Turin Horse you ask? Two dudes from Italy called s Enrico Tauraso (vox, guitar, samples) and Alain Lapaglia (drums) both of whom were in separate bands (Dead Elephant and Morkobot) but decided to sack that off, teamed up, moved to Turin and created this noise-pollution of a duo...

    Terrible  Love – Doubt Mines EP

    With this second EP, Terrible Love continue the tension and gloom-laden, stripped back attack their debut EP, Change Nothing had. However, the mixture of stark, pummeling aggression, married with the more atmospheric moments add depth to their strained and ravenous soundscapes...

    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...

    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...

    UpCDownC – I, Awake

    Split into 6 parts, I, Awake, the new album from instrumental-post-whatever-noise dirtbags UpCDownC, is essentially not being able to sleep at night; it's sticking your feet out the end of the bed and wondering if a clawed hand is about to grab hold. Sweet dreams...

    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...
