The idea of friendship is something that can sometimes get lost in translation in the creation of music. Born from their touring time together at Rockstar’s Mayhem Festival, the unlikely combination of George Fischer, Adam Dutkiewicsz and Shannon Lucas formed a bond built on those most sturdy of things Metal. Bringing together their musical outputs the band at long last release their first foray into the unknown as Serpentine Dominion.

Challenging this statement has seen a birth of countless amounts of interesting and innovative Progressive bands. One of the latest who are no doubt set to be making waves in Prog pools are Maschine.

Posted by Tristan

Hard to believe that Carcass‘ rio roaring return to form was released way back in 2014.

For those who might have been following us for a couple of years, you’ll know that in the month of December in celebration of all the genius that has come out throughout this year we pay tribute to twenty four of the best possible releases to come from the year. Twelve from myself and twelve from Chris. In an effort to celebrate all of the best material that the year has thrown at us.

Live Review: Alter Bridge + Volbeat + Gojira + Like A Storm
30th November 2016, 16:23
Posted by Chris

To say the phrase ‘what a line up’ might be a bit of an understatement here. It’s simply colossal. Four bands, three of which could probably fill out an arena on their own, perform as one package in one of London’s finest venues. We couldn’t resist, and neither could 20’000 others.

An Interview With : Dan Gargiulo (Revocation)
30th November 2016, 18:57
Posted by Tristan

Creativity in a band is a quality that cannot truly be learnt. An innate sense of self, the creative output of a band will be their defining ideology regardless of how grandiose their ideas might be. Not one for being pigeonholed, Revocation are a true creative band. Blending the likes of Old School Death Metal, Black Metal, Thrash Metal, the list goes on, into their veritable melting pot of a sound. A testament to the band’s unique output their latest release Great Is Our Sin is yet another milestone in the band’s fast increasing catalogue. Whilst on their first offensive over in the UK in support of the new album we were able to speak to none other than guitar virtuoso Dan Gargiulo about the Revocation ethos and just what Great Is Our Sin means in their grand design slowly engulfing the Death Metal community.

An Interview With : David DiSanto (Vektor)

Posted by Tristan

Combining both the fictional with the scientific has been the staple of the make up of some of our best fiction. Used perhaps as a means of escape from the mundane routine of daily life, there is a certain quality that attracts people to the idea of Sci-Fi. Not wanting to remain solely in the medium of film, Metal in particular has welcomed this subgenre with open arms. Releasing their brand new album Terminal Redux this May, Vektor are among the very select few who have mastered not only the art of the synthesis of a hugely charged concept with some of the most inspired music that will take you on a journey like no other this year. Performing at this year’s Bloodstock Festival we were able to speak with singer and guitarist David DiSanto to show us his wonderful world of Cygnus.
