Can anything stop this young band? I think not.
Eighteen months ago I reviewed Thornhill's second EP Butterfly, and at the end I said "The sky’s the limit boys, go for it". Now I don't know if they actually read that or not (I hope they did, but doubt it... let me know dudes!), but with The Dark Pool they've definitely aimed high, and hit their mark.
The future of Metal in the UK is looking awesome.
I first got a taste of LestWeForget’s music back in January when I checked out the lead single ‘Zero Won’ (which we re-covered last week). I remember being blown away by the track and wanting more from the Oxford based band. Fast forward nine months and I’ve finally gotten my wish.
Sharks In Your Mouth, one of my first musical Italian loves is back with their second full length album, Sacrilegious.
The fateful day has come and gone, in fact it has been over a couple of months since the giant slaying (well done on the boys getting featured on Spotify's New Metal Tracks alongside Slipknot, Asking Alexandria) second album first assaulted our ears. And it's time to see if I was correct with the assumptions I made after listening to 'Sacrilegious' in the lead up.
Today I am doing something I never thought I would ever do, review a current Tool record.
*First things first, I am not going to delve into the darkest reaches of this album, if I did we could spend weeks on it, so consider this the more "quick review".
Let's get the cat out of the bag straight away, shall we? I do enjoy Fear Inoculum. But... I don't love it as much as some of Tool's earlier albums. There, I've finally said what I've been thinking for almost a month now and feel so much better for it.
Now, before you light your torches and grab your pitchforks to lynch me, hear me out first please?
We Are Not Your Kind is one of my top anticipated albums of 2019, and Slipknot did not disappoint me!
Sometimes when you wait a long time for something, the end result doesn't quite live up to your expectation. Well, I can happily report that isn't the case with Slipknot's sixth studio album, We Are Not Your Kind.
In fact, for me it has surpassed even my wildest dreams of what the Iowan 9 would ever do, they've both gone back to basics in their sound, while at the same time pushed the envelope and experimenting just enough to create an amazing hybrid, that reminds you of who they were, and where they are going.
