ALBUM REVIEW: You Me At Six – SUCKAPUNCH

With a discography of chart topping studio albums, from debut full-length 'Take Off Your Colours' to sixth record 'VI', it seems on their seventh effort You Me At Six are setting out down their own path. The explosive 'SUCKAPUNCH' sees them deliver a renewed sound, travelling far and wide into uncharted dance, hip-hop and R&B territory, all whilst retaining their synonymous melodic pop, indie and rock identity.

ALBUM REVIEW: Deftones – Black Stallion

Deftones’ 'Black Stallion' feels like it had a bar that was set so high for itself, that it simply doesn’t manage to break it. Even so, with so many approaches and such a variety of sounds and soundscapes, there’s bound to be something here for everyone to enjoy.

ALBUM REVIEW: YUNGBLUD – weird!

Yorkshire born and bred singer YUNGBLUD is no stranger to speaking out for the masses, using his highly influential platform, position and power as one of the biggest solo singers in the alternative music sphere. Since bursting onto the scene in 2016, he's shouted loud and proud about social injustices felt hardest by the youth of today. Once again, this 23-year old voice of a generation is transmitting this very pepped-up rage and justified rebellious attitude towards the major issues of the world, not to mention his own deeply personal struggles, on his lyrically empowering and musically eclectic second studio album, 'weird!'.

EP REVIEW: My Dying Bride – Macabre Cabaret

Britain’s masters of melancholy, My Dying Bride, are back - less than a year after 2020’s fantastic 'Ghost of Orion' - with the 'Macabre Cabaret' EP. The EP is focused on that most compelling of subject matters - the link between fear and sexual arousal, between sweet pain and destructive illusion in unchecked sexuality. Here's what we thought...

ALBUM REVIEW: Kingdom Of Giants – Passenger

Kingdom Of Giants are a band that have been honing their craft successfully for almost a decade now, with a total of three full-length albums under their belt, but have yet to see real mainstream success. Now in 2020, the band have the backing of SharpTone Records, who have made a name for themselves recently by discovering up-and-coming metalcore acts such as Currents, Polaris and Crystal Lake to name but a few. With new release 'Passengers', they are looking to lift their head up above the parapet and ahead of the overly saturated metalcore genre in which they languish.
