Loathe are slowly but surely establishing themselves as a really special band, now finally getting the chance to tour their second album, I Let It In and It Took Everything we headed to their Glasgow show.
If you someone asked if underground alternative music in the UK was in rude health, all you’d need to do is point them towards this bill.
Cradle of Filth’s guiding force, vocalist Dani Filth, compares their previous record to 'Existence is Futile' as "ornate" and suggests this new release is anything but...and if this is Cradle trimmed of all fat, it makes you wonder how overblown this record could have been. That said, the decision to focus on the best elements, even if there are a lot of them, and refine them has resulted in an expertly crafted album that never really outstayed its welcome.
Don Broco are on unstoppable form. Somehow the band are able to blend a goofy sense of humour with modern pop aesthetics and nu-metal riffs and...make it work every single time.
In support of their third studio album 'Don't You Feel Amazing?', Trash Boat recently headed to The Cathouse in Glasgow for a great night of live music. Also on the line-up were Death Blooms, Calva Louise and Strange Bones. Head here to find out about the night and check out our photo gallery.
Metalcore is, for the most part, a creatively moribund genre. As with all scenes, it’s not without its trailblazers and its cult diamonds in the rough, but ultimately it’s a form of music that’s swapped intensity for formulas, and sincerity for tropes. Dying Wish are a metalcore band. But they’ve got no resemblance to the kinds of band that have just been mentioned. This is metalcore circa 2002: vital, visceral and venomous. A sound that’s pleasingly retro, without ever feeling dated. And it’s great.
There’s a lot to unpack around 'Visions of Another Hell'. It's Blood Youth's final record with long-time vocalist Kaya Tarsus who has now left the band, handing the torch to his successor, before the album is even released. Does this mean Blood Youth's latest effort is doomed to failure with one of its key components no longer part of it, or does it lend even more weight to a collection of tracks that are truly trapped like a moment in time?
With this looking set to be one of the last tours before the widespread cancellation of many live events due to the ongoing pandemic, we knew we couldn't miss the chance to catch Palm Reader and Employed To Serve playing Glasgow's Cathouse. Check out our review and photo gallery from the show here.
Everything’s a bit weird right now isn’t? We at Bring The Noise UK hope you’re all being safe and looking after each other. Speaking of looking after people, now’s the time we could really look after the bands we love. So how can we all help the artists whose music has helped us through our hard times and been a soundtrack to the best night of our lives, now that they need us? You can support them. There’s a range of options available to musicians and you can help spread the word or help them by giving to these fund directly, or just making sure you spin the band’s records on Spotify a few extra times this month. Here’s some ways you can help...
One about the nice things of the 21st century is that pop music isn’t a dirty word anymore. Pop is cool and when Oh Wonder played SWG3 in Glasgow recently we were there to see one of the coolest pop bands around in action.
