Skaarv – S/T (Kelp Forest Records)

Taking inspiration from the natural fury of their country’s coastline, Norway’s Skaarv have released their first full length album following on from 2015’s “Seed Of Justice” EP. The band have managed to secure some decent live support slots including Audrey… Continue Reading →

My Dynamite – Otherside (Listenable Records)

Straight off the bat, this album represents a style that isn’t on Ave Noctum’s playlists and is also different to what one might usually see on this label’s roster. However, the folks over at Listenable Records sent a copy over… Continue Reading →

MaidaVale – Tales Of The Wicked West (The Sign Records)

Who would’ve thought that it would take a band from Sweden to do the obvious and claim that so-often overlooked London Underground station as their own? Until now it has mainly reminded me of a rather mediocre Macc Lads song… Continue Reading →

Zodiac – Grain of Soul (Napalm)

Hey folks, do your shelves at home groan under the weight of Bon Jovi’s albums? Like Kiss, do you want to “rock and roll all night, and party every day”? Do you hear the phrase “extreme metal” and think of… Continue Reading →

Insane Vesper – Layil (Art Of Propaganda)

Magic Circle – Journey Blind (20 Buck Spin)

Seeking high adventure on the internet last year I stepped into the aimless void that is the world wide web with an unusual clarity of purpose. Long had it been since my soul had been stirred… No, this is not… Continue Reading →

’77 – Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us (Century Media)

Hands up who when asked where to get a dose of seventies hard rock instantly thinks “Barcelona!” Nobody? Well, me neither folks, but hailing from that beautiful city and founded by the vocal and guitar duo of the Valetta brothers,… Continue Reading →

Kadavar – Berlin (Nuclear Blast)

It is 2015 and people are panicking over Windows 10 and the Kardashians and what Facebook cause they should get behind this week. Right, feel that anxiety rising in your chest? Feel the need to get away from it all?… Continue Reading →

The Answer, Bad Touch, The Picture Books – Liverpool Arts Club 17/03/2015
