One of the many joys of being part of the musical world is the ability to listen to all sorts or material out there. I thought it was high time that I compiled a monthly list of my top five tracks.

Napalm Death are one of the most influential bands to come out of the Extreme Music scene and they might not be an easy dish to swallow at first but I certainly remember my first mouthful.

In keeping with the classic Train of Thought quote from “Honour Thy Father“, spelled out by Max Portnoy’s father the drum deity Mike Portnoy, where he says “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” it will take on a new meaning in Max’s band, Next To None have created their own story entirely from their brand new album.

Whether Its Ariana Grande, Gojira, Justin Bieber, The Black Dahlia Murder or Coldplay We’ll Always Stand Together

This weekend has seen the re appearance of a threat that we all know to be true. Speaking in hushed tones, the atrocities that were committed in London on Saturday should never be ignored. Understanding that the only way to truly beat these horrendous acts is to come together, Manchester put on a triumphant show last night following the attack there just a mere two weeks ago.

Loathe As One In The Light Of The Cold Sun : Meet The Band With A Difference
1st June 2017, 16:25
Posted by Tristan

To be original in the year 2017 is a hard ask. With the sheer amount of bands that are freely available multiplying day by day, to do something different you have to really stand out of the crowd. Despite taking a leaf out of the Slipknot style book with their vocalist’s decision to wear masks for their EP, Loathe have since abandoned this sense of anonymity and taken to their own niche.

Following on from their vicious debut of Eaten Back To Life, Cannibal Corpse began their second bloodied chapter. Still having the vocal talents of one Chris Barnes, their latest release would begin their truly horrendous album covers, which would lead to all sorts of bans over Europe.

After the first instalment in a new series celebrating a records ten year anniversary this year, we saw the diabolical conjuring of Dimmu Borgir’s In Sorte Diaboli. Now we turn our steely gaze to the Canadian genius that was 3 Inches of Blood‘s Fire Up The Blades.

The Faceless Are Screwed

Notorious for being unreliable, this time, The Faceless may well have taken the biscuit. Previously cancelling an entire Australian tour support slot with The Black Dahlia Murder, without letting fans know The Faceless screwed up. Now they’ve done it again and I think this is it.

Biters Nod To The Past In The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be

If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Very much a mentality that could be applied to more than a few bands but rather than put it down to complacency, some are just brilliant at what they do. Following on from their debut record, Electric Blood, Biters have seen their popularity simply soar. Having had spots on prestigious tours the world over, the Atlantan bunch return for their second helping of Rock ‘n’ Roll that is The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be.
