Despereaux and The ‘Cursed’ EP.

Despereaux – Oslo, Norway. Upon reading that Despereaux hailed from Norway, I expected heavy and heavy was what I indeed received but in a manner that far out-weighed the band selling themselves as simply a Hardcore band. Cursed is their third release in total and see’s the band play with their...

Bokassa – ‘Divide & Conquer’.

Bokassa – Trondheim, Norway. Cover photo credit: Erlend Lånke Solbu. Bokassa hail from Norway and they play some form of Rock music. Now even after hearing the words “Norway” and “Rock Music” you know (or rather you should) that you are about to witness something not for the feint of...

Sifting Through It All With WRCKG and Their Self-Titled EP.

WRCKG – Utrecht, The Netherlands. (Above) Photo Credit: David Hup. We’re in Utrecht once more for another shining band in both the Dutch music scene and indeed European sphere, WRCKG. The band got in touch with us after our article on equally loud contemporaries , Dock 83 who you can find...

Scornthroats and The ‘Misfortune’ LP.

Scornthroats – Cagliari, Italy. Scornthroats, formally Rise After Defeat, have been releasing music since 2011. Music that is perhaps only really best described as utterly visceral organised chaos, that is barely confined within an amalgamation of Hardcore Punk, Crust Punk and riffs that touch upon the not so distant shores...

Dock 83 – Utrecht, The Netherlands. Cover photo credit: underxposed – Click Here. With two EPs, a split, a number of singles and a recently released full-length, it’s safe to say that Utrecht natives Dock 83 are in it for the long run with their blend of Post-Hardcore and Metalcore...

The Without and The Debut ‘Factions’ EP.

The Without – Portland, Oregon, USA. FIDLAR told me that I can’t buy liquor in Portland, Oregon and thats not the best first impression to get from an area on a coast you’d like to see one day, but then all of a sudden all negative opinion was negated. Why?...

Fresh Harvest #4.

Black Tree Suns – Plymouth, England, United Kingdom. Imagine a hybrid between the tried and tested Grunge of Alice In Chains or Pearl Jam and the moody melodies and sharp riffage of Stone Sour. Imagine calm drum beats, mellow guitar riffs, sweet little harmonies and pain stricken vocals. This is...

An MF Exclusive Premiere: SPLURGE and Their ‘Mood Swings’.

SPLURGE – London/Brighton, England, United Kingdom. SPLURGE, a word that conjures images of Bugsy Malone and bright colours exploding from the muzzle of a Tommy or ‘Splurge’ gun if you remember that classic. However, the word SPLURGE also has a more contemporary standing and that would be in the form...

Own Your Life and The Debut Self-Titled.

Own Your Life – St. Neots, England, United Kingdom. Sometimes, just sometimes you need external anger in order to soothe your own. You need the cathartic release of others to help assist or act as the catalyst of your own. This exactly how I felt after pressing play on the...
