Chelsea Grin – ‘Suffer In Hell’

It feels like deathcore maestros Chelsea Grin have been gone a long time. Well, they sort of have – their last album ‘Eternal Nightmare’ was released in 2018, they released the standalone singles ‘Bleeding Sun’ and ‘Blind Kings’ during the pandemic in 2020, and though the hunger →

Dayseeker – ‘Dark Sun’

We all love music so much because it provides us with an outlet. It doesn’t matter if you’re a casual listener or one of the talents creating it – it provides an escape, therapy, an unbiased ear, a helping hand and so much more, and when bands →

L.S. Dunes – ‘Past Lives’

Throughout the history of music, so-called “supergroups” have had mixed results.

Magnolia Park – ‘Baku’s Revenge’

In recent years there has been an ongoing pop-punk revival (again). However, it’s now more diverse and inclusive beyond the stereotypical white male. One of the emerging groups in the pop-punk scene is the Orlando-based collective, Magnolia Park. Through a regular stream of singles, collaborations, EP’s, and various touring →

Turnover – ‘Myself In The Way’

Until recently, things had been pretty non-stop for Virginia Beach four-piece Turnover; they had been consistently touring and releasing new music regularly since 2012. It took a pandemic to halt progress after the release of their third album ‘Altogether’ in 2019. That album had seen the band →

Tigers Jaw – ‘Old Clothes’

Last year, Tigers Jaw released their sixth album, ‘I Won’t Care How You Remember Me’.

The Hunna – ‘The Hunna’

The Hunna have made no secret of the fact they’ve had their issues both in and with the music industry throughout their years as a band, but no album encapsulates that quite as well, and as directly as this self-titled release.  Taking us on a journey →
