Interview – Striker

Striker’s third release ‘City of Gold’ is quite a catchy traditional metal release and as a band they have upped their game and are now on the brink of a couple of major tours which will no doubt enhance their… Continue Reading →

Feature & Interview Alt-Fest

There is a clue in the name and Alt-Fest is very much the alternative festival that we in the UK could only have dreamed about a few years ago. It was then that announcements were made telling us about this… Continue Reading →

What I like about many of the UK Metal bands I’ve heard from the last 10 years or so, is that they generally either take a style but try to make it sound different in some small way, re-imagine what… Continue Reading →
