American Standards And Their ‘Anti Melody’.

American Standards – Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Punk-Rock has always served and will likely always serve as some form of catharsis and the latest album from Phoenix, Arizona Hardcore/Noise/Punk-Rock four-piece is very strongly inline with this “rule”. Rage and anger, loss and heartache, political strife or social tension you name it,...

Sounds Of Swami – ‘Furniture For Modern Living’.

Sounds Of Swami – Keighley, England, United Kingdom. Sounds Of Swami are band that create intrigue before you press play. The Keighley four-piece first raise your eyebrows via who they cite as their influences, with the likes of At The Drive-In, Fugazi, The Bronx and Hot Snakes brashly and unashamedly...

Windover and The ‘Maze’ EP.

Windover – Minsk, Belarus. Hailing from Belarus and Minsk specifically, Windover are a band taking key aspects of the diversity of modern Punk music and twisting it to their needs through soaring and whirling crescendos, break-neck tempos, precision time signatures and utter catharsis. Maze is the band’s debut release, consisting of...

Seven Crowns – ‘Lightning Rod’ – Released: 07/10/17.

Seven Crowns – Bath, England, United Kingdom. Bath isn’t somewhere you would usually associate with visceral Hardcore Punk but maybe it should be. Seven Crowns are very much the epitome and comparison you look for in regard to veteran status in this underground and DIY Punk scene. The band’s collected...

The Crash Mats – ’69 Peruvian Panpipe Classics’.

The Crash Mats – Oldham, England, United Kingdom. For our previous work on the band – Click Here. The Crash Mats are from Oldham and they play Ska-infused Punk. The band also don’t take themselves seriously, at all in fact. Strong English Punk-Rock merges with old-school Ska, Hardcore Punk and general abandon...

The Phosphorus Bombs – ‘Cancers’.

The Phosphorus Bombs – Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Australian Punk-Rock music isn’t half bad and in this case Sydney and its scene have something for you. Enter The Phosphorus Bombs. The band are very much sat (well, not really) somewhere between 80’s Hardcore Punk and its eventual descendent Skate...

Dead Town Nothing: An Update.

Dead Town Nothing – Isle Of Wight, England, United Kingdom. Dead Town Nothing have been quiet for quite some time now. The band were set for a follow up to the mini-album Consequences and its charged Metallic Hardcore in 2016 but sadly, said EP that was to be entitled Leeches never materialised. Why? Well, life. That...

Bash Brothers and Their ‘Life Lessons’.

Bash Brothers – Eksjö, Sweden. The moment I saw this request in our inbox, I found myself transfixed, determined and reaching for my “objective hat”. Why? Well in truth, any self respecting modern Punk fan can’t possibly ignore anything in the way of Punk-Rock from the country of Sweden, the country...
