Album Review: Aggressive, Beartooth

Beartooth’s recent album, Aggressive, is the follow up to the incredible debut album, Disgusting. I think I am rather safe in saying that expectations for this album were high from a wide array of their fans. The album kicks off with three songs released prior to the album release; Aggressive, Hated & Loser. All three…

Album Review: Dark Matter, The Word Alive

The fourth installment from the Arizona quintet aiming for a larger sound with better melodies, but was this achieved? I’ve read a lot of positive comments on this album yet I am left wanting a lot more. The Word Alive are my favorite band; i own multiple shirts, all albums and seen them 10+ times…

Live Review: Slipknot

Tuesday 9th February, Alexandra Palace. The modern metal giants had London in the palm of their hand. Everything about this night was perfect – from setlist choice to the intensity of the crows; could not have been better. From the opening song, The Negative One, up until half way through there was an incredible energy…

Album Review: Earthbound, Bury Tomorrow

With a plethora of riffs, ferocious screams and catchy choruses, this is definitely Bury Tomorrow at their (current) finest. This is certainly a treat for me to be reviewing as my first album review for this year – this is a pretty incredible album. Earthbound starts as it means to go on with The Eternal;…

Album Review: Brainwash, While She Sleeps

Spoiler – this is my favorite album of 2015. That should give you an idea of where this review will be going. Now, I only have the standard album, not the deluxe version. From what I have heard, I miss out on two songs and some interludes (that I’m sure I will purchase at a…

Live Review: Don Broco

Sunday 13th December, Brixton Academy Last gig of the year! What a year it has been with many many shows, festivals (both day and weekends) and starting up this blog. Let’s hope we can carry this on through 2016! This was again a great night to go along to, but had a very different crowd…

Live Review: Five Finger Death Punch

Saturday 28th November, Wembley Arena In the wake of the recent attacks in Paris, a lot of gigs have understandably been cancelled. I thought my evening would be soured by Papa Roach pulling out of the gig. They were the main reasoning for my attendance on this night, but it was still an amazing experience….

Live Review: Beartooth

Tuesday 24th November | Electric Ballroom I need to stop going to mid-week gigs. Well, I more need to drink less at said gigs. But this is the reason that I continue to go to them – this was an incredible performance. Let’s start at the bottom of the bill with Youth Blood. I need…

Live Review: Lamb of God | Megadeth

Saturday 14th November, Wembley Arena I had been looking forward to this day for a long long time. Why? Because I had never seen Lamb of God before and it is definitely long overdue. I was however slightly disappointed that what was advertised as a co-headline tour, was more of a Megadeth headline tour with…

Live Review: The Amity Affliction

Sunday 8th November, London Koko Just to clarify, this was for the Impericon Never Say Die Tour. I had researched all of the bands that were on the tour, but none of them appealed to me other than Amity. My expectations were therefore rather low for this show as a whole. I was right in…

Hey Guys! Thanks for checking this out as this is my first proper post to the site!. So I want to discuss the recent(ish) album from Cancer Bats, “Searching For Zero”. In all honesty, if I was to review this album when it came out I would give it a much lower rating. This album…
