EP REVIEW: ROAM – Viewpoint

You only have to watch one of ROAM's music videos to get an idea of what to expect from their songs; clips of them travelling the country, skatebording ...

Most bands who are in their early stages and releasing their debut EP have a handful of fans, probably consisting of their friends and family. One band who pull apart that mould and squish it into the ground are Hollywood rockers The Killing Lights. Why, you might ask? Probably because the quartet are fronted by the one and only Michael Orlando, better known as Michael Vampire of goth rockers Vampires Everywhere! With just five tracks to their name but a fan base topping 630,000, the quartet have a lot to prove with this debut self-titled EP. A new chapter in his ...

King 810 have had one hell of a year. Their debut album split opinion right down the middle, with its harrowing tales of the poverty stricken city of Flint, Michgan. We were lucky enough to sit down with frontman David Gunn, as they prepared themselves for opening up for Slipknot and Korn on the Prepare For Hell Tour. We talked about how they’ve changed their live show, what it’s like being away from Flint and if they’ll ever leave their hometown….
