Within the ever stirring world of metalcore, Beartooth are an American band who have been absolutely soaring over the past year or so. During their last visit to Glasgow, they landed what could be described as a 'pretty good' impression; but with a recently released second album entitled Aggressive and a supporting tour to match, any chance to see a possibility of improvement of an already solid live band is a graciously accepted event.
It's always heartening to hear new music that's completely original, a blend of existing styles put together beautifully in a way that doesn't sound quite like any of them. Brighton's Earth Moves, on their debut LP 'The Truth in Our Bodies', have done just that.
The Fall of Troy triumphantly return to Glasgow for the first time since reuniting (although they played Edinburgh last year), armed with a new album's worth of material. Playing at the Cathouse, they are supported by melodic hardcore outfit Terrible Love, and emo group Tiny Moving Parts.
It’s been a few years since Canadian natives Billy Talent put together a new studio album, the last we heard from Kowalewicz and co was back in 2014. Proclaimed as one of Canada’s most successful rock acts there are high hopes pinned on this latest outing.
It’s one thing to incorporate more experimental ideas into your sound, but it’s another thing entirely to do so when you are one album in to your career, especially considering that one album made waves by delivering an already standout style. Such a statement would fit suit to the gambit made by Night Verses on their second album Into The Vanishing Night.
Brighton's River Becomes Ocean have already gathered early acclaim for their cinematic post-hardcore and if December is anything to go by, it definitely won't be long before the rivers of support turn into oceans.
After a three-year hiatus and a seven year gap between albums, The Fall of Troy have returned with their new album, OK, released for free - and independently - on the band's website. We spoke to lead vocalist and guitarist Thomas Erak and drummer Andrew Forsman about the release of OK and the events surrounding its recording.
Black Peaks are one of the most interesting bands in post-hardcore and metal music today, and Statues is a whirlwind of different styles within and without heavy music. It will subvert any opinions one may have that heavy music has become stale, and reassure audiences that an interesting, intense, incredible band can still attain a degree of mainstream recognition in the digital age.
