LEAGUE OF LIGHTS – new album

League Of Lights are an electronic pop-rock duo comprised of Farrah and Richard West. Their third and most accomplished album to date, ‘Dreamers Don’t Come Down’ is an outstanding collection of songs that is redolent in places of early ’80s synth pioneers like John Foxx, as well as ’00s exponents of the genre such as Ladytron. With a powerful secret weapon in Farrah’s voice, plus uptempo songs such as ‘The Collector’ and ‘Persephone’ boasting club-banger choruses to kill for, the duo possess crossover pop nous in abundance. Meanwhile, slower and lyrically introspective tracks such as ‘Dreamers’ and ‘Lines In The… Continue reading

Hardwicke Circus – Walking On Broken Glass

“If you drive into Carlisle,” says Hardwicke Circus frontman Jonny Foster, “the first roundabout you’ll hit is Hardwicke Circus. Whenever we’d travel anywhere, I’d say, ‘We’re from Carlisle,’ and the response would be, ‘Where the fuck is Carlisle?’ But there are no excuses now.” Hardwicke Circus aren’t your average guitar band – a six piece collective from the wilds of Carlisle, a band who value the song above the single, a group who have a sound soaked with the classic sounds of rock n roll history but still sound completely of the moment, individuals channelling their differences into a similarity… Continue reading

SPIRAL GRAVE, comprised of vocalist Screaming Mad Dee, Iron Louis Strachan (bass), Mot Waldmann on drums and former LORD guitarist Willy Rivera – whose aggressive riffing sets the mood for the band’s heavy as hell, in your face doom – was born after the tragic death of IRON MAN founding member Alfred Morris III. They quickly carved a place for themselves in North America’s heavy music scene, playing well-received sets at New England Stoner Doom Fest or… Continue reading

Messiahvore – CULT WORSHIP

Today they release a new single from the album ‘Cult Worship’. ‘Cult Worship’ is a sludgy, doom drenched track with an industrial fusion, aggressive and thick. ‘Cult Worship’ has an industrial vibe. Riffs are aggressive and tight, then open and noise-infested with sonic wind and feedback. ‘Cult Worship’ begins with a stylistically tribal intro beat that bleeds into a minimalistic verse, then brought together by a straight-forward driving chorus. The song is meant to push and pull until its final bombastic summary. Lyrically, the song seems to be an introspective search and request for individuals to think for themselves. With the current state… Continue reading

Les Chants du Hasard – Le Reflet

LES CHANTS DU HASARD is the project of Hazard. It was born with the idea that Metal is a musical style that deals with extreme emotions, anger, violence, darkness and despair and whose goal is to create an aural experience of those emotions, something more than just music, that would drown the listener. Mainman Hazard wondered what would be the best way to create such music and the answer he found is that one needs the most expressive musical means. Now, what is the musical vessel with the most possibilities, the most nuances and that has been refined for centuries… Continue reading
