EP REVIEW: Forever After – Just Another Year
2014 has seen a steady stream of bands trying to revitalise the pop punk genre. These bands have tried, and often failed to rekindle some kind of energy into the scene. They have either done this by adding a hardcore edge to their music, bringing back the “punk” into “pop punk” or by just being ridiculously catchy.

Forever After, unfortunately, falls into the group of bands ...

ALBUM REVIEW: Accept – Blind Rage
Few names in heavy metal are as revered as the Teutonic titans of Accept, and in recent years the respect they have garnered among headbanging devotees has been enhanced through something of a rebirth. Replacing iconic front man Udo Dirkschneider with Mark Tornillo, and welcoming back into the fold Balls to the Wall guitarist Herman Frank, the legendary outfit has flourished in resurgence with the highly acclaimed Blood of the Nations (2010) and Stalingrad (2012). The release of this revitalized line-up's third record Blind Rage demonstrates an eager desire for consistency, and if this album matches its recent predecessors in quality and pure heaviness then there can be no doubt that the German veterans ...
