LATEST MUSIC REVIEWS/INTERVIEWS
FLICKERTAIL - Hurry Up and Wait (EP)
Some music can feel like a breath of fresh air, Flickertail’s newest EP ‘Hurry Up and Wait’, released on the 16th March 2018 on Golden Robot Records, is just that. Light and engaging with hints of pop rock and indie all intertwined together to deliver an uplifting EP that is interlaced with appealing riffs and absorbing choruses..
THREE LEFT - The Calling (Album)
Milwaukee has a long and rich metal heritage - ok, perhaps not, but it does have that scene in Wayne’s World where Alice Cooper discusses the Algonquian pronunciation of the city’s name backstage with his band, which counts right? Unencumbered by the weight of history then come Three Left with their blend of groove metal riffing and hard rock melodies..
LOST GRAVITY - How To Make A Giant (Album)
LOST GRAVITY are a London-based hard rock band, formed in 2007 by Brazilian guitarist/vocalist Breno Val, and have just released their second full-length album, 'How To Make A Giant'. Val is the only remaining original member and continues to be the creative force, joined by drummer Giuliano Kolling who joined the band in 2012. Their influences include AC/DC and Metallica, and they describe their sound as riff-heavy. They've just completed the European leg of their 'Making a Giant' tour and performed at April's Big Red Rising in Holloway..
RITCHIE BLACKMORE'S RAINBOW - Memories In Rock II (Album)
How on earth did Ritchie Blackmore ever think that three live shows in the UK (four if you include Stone Free festival) would satisfy his legions of fans? Starved of Rainbow for over twenty years, all the shows sold out easily. Add to that, the Deep Purple, and Blackmore’s Night fans, and there’s no way he can please them all. So due to obvious popular demand, a live double CD ‘Memories In Rock II’ was inevitable, not only for those that missed the shows, but for the ones who were lucky enough to be there..
LIGHT THE TORCH - Revival (Album)
Rising from the struggles they faced as DEVIL YOU KNOW and brandishing a new name LIGHT THE TORCH holds high the flame that leads to their album ‘REVIVAL’, and what an apt name it is!
Amidst personal struggles and band name legal issues, Light The Torch slam down 12 tracks of their best incendiary metalcore to date. Every track on the album delivering charged vocals, contrasted by a melodious counter balance of harmonised perfection that ...
'77 - Bright Bloom (Album)
'77 was founded by the Valeta brothers in 2006 as a tribute to AC/DC’s 'Let There Be Rock' (from, you’ve guessed it, 1977). The Spanish band are heavily influenced by the ‘70s, a decade the brothers feel artistically drawn to, citing The Who, Black Sabbath, and Slade amongst the bands who made the biggest impact on them from this time. Mixed by the Valeta brothers in Madrid, 'Bright Gloom' is released 27th April 2017..
TWISTED ILLUSION - Excite The Light Part 1 (Album)
It cannot be said that Twisted Illusion are a band to rest on their laurels. This is the band’s third album since their 2016 debut. Last year's ‘Insight To The Mind of a Million Faces’ - a double album no less - raised their profile enough to earn them a spot at Bloodstock and they’re back again now with Excite the Light part 1, the first instalment of a planned trilogy..
