Glass Casket – ‘GLASS CASKET’

Think back seventeen years and imagine what the world was like. Music was very different. Deathcore was very different. Glass Casket last released a record back in 2006 and after so many years of inactivity, you’d think they were dead and buried, but really they’ve been waiting

American Nightmare – ‘DEDICATED TO THE NEXT WORLD’

Your hard work will get you nothing. No one is equal. Welcome to the American Nightmare. The idea of America as the land of opportunity is one anyone would want to buy into, but not this band from Boston, Massachusetts. They’re flipping that idea, inverting it,

Black Coast – ‘BLACK COAST’

You might not have heard of Black Coast – yet – but they’ve been tearing up the underground metal scene with their incendiary live shows. They haven’t quite broken out, but that’s about to change. Their debut album ‘Outworld’ dropped in 2021 and it set the stage,

Atreyu – ‘The Hope Of A Spark’

Everything changes. Over the last 25 years, Atreyu have grown, split-up, reformed and evolved, putting out some great records along the way. ‘The Hope Of A Spark’ is four brand new songs, each no-nonsense and hard-hitting. It’s brief, to the point and just a little bit weird,

Imagine the scene, you’re struggling to find a hook to hang your review on, it seems hopeless, but then, you take a swig of a sparkling beverage; it tastes pretty good, it has an unusual flavour, it’s quite refreshing, and then you discover the container is 100%

Story Of The Year – ‘Tear Me To Pieces’

Growing old isn’t easy, yet it’s something everyone must do. Time goes on and if you’re lucky you can make your mark, you can make something matters. Story Of The Year have been around a while, they have made some great records. Best described as pop punk

Grandmas House – ‘Who Am I’

You might remember the stories but this Grandmas House isn’t where you’d find a twee old lady in flannelette; instead a wolf lurks inside. It’s the perfect name for the punk trio Yasmin Berndt, Poppy Dodgson and Zoe Zinsmeister. They’re unashamedly queer, opinionated and – yes –

Erase Theory – ‘ERASE THEORY’

Life as a musician is hard. It’s precarious. Jeff Sahyoun spent ten years as the guitarist in Letlive. His whole life was built around the band. And then it ended. Suddenly, the band split citing ‘creative differences’, and while their vocalist quickly found success fronting another band,

Hundred Reasons – ‘GLORIOUS SUNSET’

Hundred Reasons dissolved. They didn’t burn out, they faded away. Back in 2007 the arrival of downloads was turning the music world into a very different place. Upheaval at their record label forced ‘Sharp The Word, Quick The Action’ into existence and afterward they drifted apart. Sure,
