LIVE REVIEW: Comeback Kid, Svalbard, Boston Music Room, London, 08/07/19

Having been around for nearly two decades, Comeback Kid have spent the entirety of their career churning out a seemingly endless stream of metal-infused hardcore punk tracks influencing countless younger bands along the way. Tonight in the DIY punk surroundings of Boston Music Room they took to the stage alongside British hybrid outfit Svalbard.

ALBUM REVIEW: Batushka – Hospodi

Taking on a darker concept than its ancestor, Batushka’s 'Hospodi' is a polished, well-orchestrated record. However, while it has its glorious, exciting moments, and sees more experimentation than that heard in 'Litourgiya', it is far from the immersive masterpiece it followed.


Having now jumped onto the highly esteemed label Century Media and with Sean Beavan on production duties, 3TEETH lay out their boldest manifesto yet. Can this combination give their message a bigger platform?

FESTIVAL REVIEW: Download 2019 – Friday

There are more encouraging build ups to a major UK summertime festival than an entire week of continuous, heavy rain, but for the regulars of Download Festival, it’s nothing out of the ordinary. Lovingly nicknamed Drownload, it’s often plagued by inclement weather, but while clothes, bodies and campsites may be sodden before a single band has even played a note, it takes more than adverse conditions to dampen the spirits of UK metal fans.
