Fallujah – Undying Light (Nuclear Blast)

Fallujah’s previous album “Dreamless” was just amazing, and I saw them put on a sterling performance at UK TechFest, so my hopes for “Undying Light” were high. Interestingly the band now talks of a “new era”. Well it might be… Continue Reading →

Aenimus – Dreamcatcher (Nuclear Blast)

Bay Area metal bands conjure up a certain image. Bands like Death Angel and more recently Fallujah come to mind. What I heard of Aenimus’s second album release “Dreamcatcher” is more akin to Fallujah in its technicality and progressive edge…. Continue Reading →

Obscura, Fallujah, Allegaeon & First Fragment – Manchester, Rebellion Bar 7/2/19

After the brutalising five band tornado that hit the Rebellion Bar the previous night it was the turn of a different touring package to obliterate Manchester, as this four band bill was far more technical oriented than the bludgeoning I… Continue Reading →

Irreversible Mechanism – Immersion (Blood Music)

Californian atmospheric black metal band Underling have recently signed to Neuropa records, giving us a chance to catch up with two great releases, 2013’s ‘Breathe Deeply’ and 2015’s ‘Bloodworship’, both re-issued in glorious digipack form. Playing with a potent mix… Continue Reading →

Carnifex – Slow Death (Nuclear Blast)

Reading album reviews of the deathcore scene has taken the approach of slating them without justification on both the digital and printed media to the point that it is tedious and serves no purpose to the outlet or the band… Continue Reading →

A day at UK TechFest, Newark Showground, 9/7/16

This was the fifth edition of UK TechFest. I’d been to one before, Johnski to two. We both noticed the improvements since our first visit in 2013. The bands and atmosphere were good but then it was all a bit… Continue Reading →

Fallujah – Dreamless (Nuclear Blast)

The world has been waiting for a band like Fallujah. That’s what the band’s vocalist says. So understatement in the music seemed an unlikely outcome in the case of “Dreamless”. Wow. Well I have to say this oeuvre from the… Continue Reading →
