The Kaos and The ‘Cold’ Single Release.

The Kaos – Oxford, England, United Kingdom. A little closer to my (second) home town with todays musing, we’re in the Uni-town of Oxford where in May of 2013 the Alternative Rock trio The Kaos were born and promptly began bringing us what we dig about stadium-Rock but with a...

Damage Protocol – The Debut Self Titled EP.

Damage Protocol – Leicester, England, United Kingdom. We enjoy dissecting releases like this on Musically Fresh, releases that keep us guessing and refuse to sit too near any genre-camp situated around them and the debut EP from Leicester three-piece Damage Protocol can certainly be counted among this number. Released back...

Duskwood – The Forthcoming Debut Full-Length ‘Desert Queen’.

Duskwood – Yeovil, England, United Kingdom. The Hard Rock/Stoner Rock/Desert Rock epoch is one that can really go either way. You hear the words “Hard Rock” and you more often than not think of Guns N’ Roses or some mid-80’s rumble that was more about being “metal” and generally cliche...

Horrible – ‘But Is It Even Music, Really?’ In Review.

Horrible – Chicago, Illinois, USA. ‘Two songs about wars, two songs about sleazy youth, two songs from a plot about aliens made of sound coming to earth.’ Horrible are the Chicago answer to the nostalgic raucous bliss of the 80’s Indie Rock circuit. Hard rocking, melodic and undeniably chaotically beautiful,...

Losing Victory – ‘Break’ Single and Video release.

Losing Victory –  Exeter, England, United Kingdom. The Exeter based Losing Victory are the product of a love for riff-laden Hard Rock and “classic” Metal, strong melodies and the moodiness in world left behind by Grunge and its distorted gloom. The previous sentence is a compliment. Promise. Formed in 2013...

Deathsticks and Their Haunting Garage Of Distorted Noise.

Deathsticks – Whitby, Ontario, Canada. I’ll try to keep this short. Whitby based Deathsticks are a very obscure and dirty sounding duo that I honestly have no idea about whether they are a serious effort or not and I’m not even sure if I mean that as a negative criticism. They remind...

Circle Of Reason Release New Single & Video, ‘Questions’.

Circle Of Reason – Southampton, England, United Kingdom. Gary, Simon, Andy and Rob collectively form Southampton based Alternative Rock band, Circle Of Reason and are precisely what Alt. Rock needs.
