ALBUM REVIEW: Sleep Token – Take Me Back to Eden

From blood curdling screams and some seriously crushing breakdowns and riffs, to piano melodies and ballad sensitivities, and even some tasteful use of autotune and electronic elements inspired by trap songs, 'Take Me Back to Eden' has pretty much got it all in an album that’s bound to take Sleep Token to new heights.

ALBUM REVIEW: Enter Shikari – A Kiss For The Whole World

With plenty of high-octane riffs and synths, a good blend of classical elements, and even the occasional scream or two, 'A Kiss For The Whole World' is a perfectly suitable new album by Enter Shikari. Though it ends up being a little shorter than we’d care for, and its placement after 'Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible' can make it come across as a ‘safer’ entry, everyone can rest assured that the St. Albans band did not disappoint us this time, either.

ALBUM REVIEW: AVATAR – Dance Devil Dance

While it’s certainly got some tracks which pale in comparison to others, 'Dance Devil Dance' is quite a solid record, with more than a handful of memorable moments to hold fans over until they can see Avatar in concert, or until they put out another album - whichever comes first.

LIVE REVIEW: Tarja, Serpentyne, Abakas, /FORM Space, Cluj-Napoca, RO, 19/10/2022

Joined by openers Serpentyne and Abakas, one of the most well-loved performers in the industry has returned to Romania: Tarja Turunen, the Finnish soprano and reigning queen of symphonic metal herself. Her second time ever performing in Cluj-Napoca, and her first rock concert in the city, would see her play a fully-packed /FORM Space - here’s what we thought of the night!

With 'NULA' under their belt, Vukovi have once again displayed their talent in blending genres and soundscapes into one coherent style, all while expertly tackling some pretty heavy subjects and juggling a conceptual narrative on top of everything. This is their best record so far, and there’s no doubt about it.

'EBM' is partly a return to form for Editors, and partly a leap into a new direction. The songs have a sense of urgency and immediacy that’s been missing for a while, but which has now found its way back into the sounds employed by the Birmingham collective. The addition of Blanck Mass, too, has proved beneficial, as it has breathed new life into the band’s sound, and we can’t wait to see where it will take them and how it will evolve further.

The 'Paranoia' EP set the bar pretty high when it was released last year, but 'SUCKERPUNCH' will definitely live up to those expectations. Though some songs are easily outshined by others, this is a more than solid effort, especially for a debut album, and the soul that Maggie Lindemann has put into the making of this record is impossible to ignore.
