Since they released their stunning 2022 album 'In Stasis', Monuments have been showing no signs of slowing down. Ever. Since then, they have dropped a brand new single and have been firm-favourites on international support tours, most recently supporting legends Leprous on their UK and European run. Back to their Radar stomping ground to headline the second stage on Friday, we sat down with the lovely Andy Cizek and Werner Erkelens to talk all about the band's latest single 'Nefarious', merch cuts, breaking Download Festival and why they love Radar Festival so damn much.
Much like their peers in Polyphia, Unprocessed are a band starting to earn serious status. Their latest LP 'Gold' conveys this band's stunning ability to create a sensual tension with their instruments, something which feels authentic, raw and totally unique. Back at Radar Festival for a third year in a row, we sat down with guitarist Christoph Schultz and bassist David John Levy of Germany's instrumental wonders, to talk all about their recent Live In Texas footage, their relationship with TesseracT and their awe-inspiring performance at Radar Festival.
There was simply no time for the stereotypical Sunday lull at Radar Festival 2023 because across its three days, Sunday at Radar is perhaps the most action packed, super stacked day from start to finish. From djent lords Periphery to Liverpool's Loathe, Sunday’s lineup at Radar Festival is simply outrageously good.
As they approach the deadline to release their second studio album 'Human', French metalcore outfit Resolve are feeling more human than ever before. Their debut album 'Between Me And The Machine' cemented their identity of big breakdowns and even bigger melodies. But second time around Resolve have found their wings, expanding and experimenting with their sound while getting the most personal they have ever been on a body of work. Flying over to Radar Festival for their first ever UK festival appearance, we sat down with Resolve bassist Robin Mariat to talk all about the band's sonic duality, Siamese being party animals and their Radar Festival expectations.
Saturday at Radar could well and truly be the festival's most dynamic and diverse day to date at its 2023 edition of the festival. Where mighty metal core titans Heart Of A Coward rip up the second stage with soul crushing metalcore, suave Aussie outfit Thornhill bring their brand of beautifully hard-hitting sophistication.
Whilst Sleep Token’s cult worshipped their lords at the ritual, elsewhere Radar festival favourites Monuments set o2 Victoria Warehouse a blaze. This is what went down on Friday at Radar Festival 2023.
