Saturday night I finally watched my first live gig of 2020, and it was online.
Meet When Nothing Works, who describe themselves as a "Shouty Band" from Essex, trying to prove that something better than TOWIE can come out of it, and even though they only have a handful of tracks out at the moment, they've already achieved this easily in my books.
Welcome back to the second edition of Ronon's Reviews The 10 Most Promising Music Acts Right Now! In this monthly list I will try to vary as much as possible the type of artists I talk about and I think this piece is the proof, as you can find Alt-Pop, Punk, Hip Hop, Death Metal and even some Hardcore, because why the hell not, if the music is good, I think it should be promoted.
So if you like what you see below, support your fave and also us = like + share + follow!
This is what happens to musicians in lockdown...
Last year we featured Void of Vision's 'Hole In Me' as a Track of the Week, in that review I said we could include the Melbourne based group in any list of amazing Aussie Metalcore bands. Since then, they've dropped their second studio album Hyperdaze, which includes today's track, and current single 'Decay'.
The J-Core giants deliver something for everyone with their two track EP Watch Me Burn.
While we can admit for the most part that 2020 has sucked some serious balls, musically speaking though, and especially for Metalcore, it has rocked pretty hard. With my beloved J-Core making quite the impression in the first several months of this utterly shitty year. First we had heavyweights Crossfaith drop their epic teaser EP Species, and now we have Crystal Lake releasing new music in the form of the two track A side EP Watch Me Burn.
Join us as we discover a new sub-genre of fun and old school noise.
Ever heard of the genre Nintendocore before? I wouldn't blame you if you haven't, it's not something that gets much, if any airtime on mainstream radio. I only discovered it by accident a year ago or so when I was doing some Metalcore related research and stumbled across it. I didn't dig any deeper at the time and forgot about it for the most part, until recently a few Nintendocore tracks worked their way into my Spotify discovery playlists. I'm now a convert.
