Haig – Freeze The World (Golden Robot Records)

HaiG is a new British indie rock band formed by guitarist Billy Bibby, formerly of Welsh band Catfish And The Bottlemen and joined by Carl Rutherford and Joe Mooney with Freeze The World being the band's debut release which is a short and sweet five track EP. HaiG come across as an immediately hitting and..

The Mercy Kills – X EP (Golden Robot Records)

King Bull – What Happened Here? EP (Riot Records)

King Bull is a Canadian power-trio from Alberta and has been around for something like 13 years although it seems that they have not always had the same name or even line-up, they are obviously then the musical equivalent to Trigger's broom (look this up on the internet if unsure of the reference). It appears..

When Frames Collide – Quattro (X-Ray Records)

It appears that When Frames Collide was a short-lived Australian band from Melbourne and the four tracks on this EP is the total amount of the music that the band ever recorded so four songs and 22-minutes doesn't leave much of a musical legacy. Information on the band is understandably scarce but they had a..

George Thorogood And The Destroyers – Live in Boston 1982: The Complete Concert (Craft Recordings / Snakefarm Records)

Thorogood’s music was always loud, simple and direct... In 1982, Delaware bluesmen George Thorogood and the Destroyers were at the top of their game.

Onslaught – Generation Antichrist (AFM Records)

Onslaught will be a name well known to all fans of thrash metal worldwide and this Bristol based band is back with album number seven Generation Antichrist, a most irreverent but hard hitting thrash album intermingled with a fair amount of hardcore. The band history goes back to 1982 with a hiatus between 1991 and..

Ekko Park – Horizon (Dinner For Wolves)

Ekko Park is a bright and breezy indie rock band from Auckland, New Zealand with Horizons being the third album to be released following Tomorrow Tomorrow Today in 2015 and Know Hope in 2015 which both did well in New Zealand. It seems that there have been changes within the band and now have a..

Necrophobic – Dawn Of The Damned (Century Media Records)

Necrophobic are riding on the waves of inspiration lately. Recruiting the guitar duo of Johan Bergebäck and Sebastian Ramstedt back in the band in 2016 was probably the best decision band leader Joakim Sterner (drums) has ever taken. Actually, with vocalist Andreas Strokirk (who sang on the legendary debut The Nocturnal Silence) also having returned..
