Album Review: Cope (Hope)

Album Review: Cope/Hope

Manchester Orchestra is a very distinct, dare I say unique, group hailing from Atlanta, Georgia. The group was assembled in 2004 when the group was barely out of high school. 269 more words


Manchester Orchestra is an oddly-named band from Atlanta that plays music that sounds nothing like what you’d expect. They’re also one of my favorite bands. I discovered them entirely by accident, after initially mistaking them for frontman Andy Hull’s side project. 810 more words


Sleepwave Broken Compass Album Review

Sleepwave’s new album Broken Compass, is a mix of busy beats and laid back vocals. While the background noise remains loud and untamed, the lyrics of the songs seem far away and secluded behind the instruments. 114 more words


Kix – Rock Your Face Off – Album Review

So, those of you that know me fairly well will already know that I am not perhaps the World’s biggest Kix fan, haha!… And indeed I have been less than complimentary in some of my live reviews of the M3 Festival. 1,215 more words

Coffinworm – IV.I.II

Produced, recorded, and mixed by Sanford Parker.

Mastered by Collin Jordan.

Release Date: March 18, 2014, Profound Lore Records

Genre-defying noisy metallic Indianapolis, Indiana juggernaut Coffinworm have made what will surely be a contender for Heavy Album of the Year (I can’t even imagine a scenario where it wouldn’t finish in the top three).   397 more words

Album Review: Semi Deus, Fractal Catharsis

Semi Deus – Fractal Catharsis (self released)

Review by Stephen Fallows

It’s always great to receive a bands first release and already be able to see that they have a big potential so early on in their life. 303 more words


Album Review: Sewer Trench EP

Sewer Trench – Self Titled (ep) (self released)

Review by Stephen Fallows

No messing about from London four piece mob Sewer Trench. Six songs in just under quarter of an hour of black / crust / grindcore that all adds up to a thoroughly unpleasant experience, and that is exactly what the band have gone for. 281 more words
