    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. ...

    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. ...

    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. ...

    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? ...

    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. ...

    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. ...

    ’68 – Two Parts Viper

    When a man in a suit approaches you in a dream and tells you that you will fail if he (the man) isn't two parts viper, then I guess that's a sign, right? That's what Josh Scogin, vocalist and guitarist for improv-noise bastards '68 thinks - either that, or he needs to seriously cut down on the Twin Peaks marathons. ...

    USA Nails – Shame Spiral

    Immersing themselves almost completely in a different spectrum of reality, USA Nails (the family fun time band from London - as they like to call themselves) seem content to continue morphing into a magic eye picture of warped insanity. The Swami-guitar lines of their debut have all been erased; washed in a sea of sludge. ...
