Sage and The Debut ‘Procrastinate’ EP.

Sage – Cochrane, Ontario, Canada. As a herb, there is no apparent “good evidence’” that Sage has a beneficial impact on the brain. However, the best thing about this Sage, is that as a band, they’re from the same town as Tim Hortons. Now gee isn’t that a wonderful coincidence....

One Eyed Jack – ‘What m’ I Getting High On?’

One Eyed Jack – Verolanuova, Italy. Now, with an album title such as the above followed by three pink Chickens, you are naturally going to expect an album not fitting of the word “normal” or any other adjective depicting just another Rock band. One Eyed Jack are abstract and with...

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...

I Hate Ricky and The Genre Crossing Punk Of ‘Mulligan’.

I Hate Ricky – Nashville, Tennessee, USA. The Nashville based I Hate Ricky are very open with what the are trying to achieve. The band seek to emulate the rawness of the original inceptions of Punk-Rock and its fiery successor Hardcore and merge those sonic ideals with their many (and...

GagReflex – The Forthcoming ‘A Mouthful Of Marbles’.

GagReflex – Cheltenham, England, United Kingdom. What do you think of when you think of Cheltenham? Having never been I only really know it as the place near to Gloucester and for better or for worse, that’s the limit of my knowledge. Or it was… GagReflex are two-piece Punk-Rock band...

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...

SickOnes – ‘The Red Line’ EP.

SickOnes – South West England, United Kingdom. Photography credit – Ashlea Bea Photography – Click Here. For our previous work on SickOnes – Click Here. I recently had heard that SickOnes had been labelled the ‘best Hardcore band in the South West’. In any normal case after hearing this, I...

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...

Over To You – The Debut ‘Ideal Lives’ EP.

Over To You – Swindon, England, United Kingdom. With Over To You, we have some Pop-Punkers from my hometown of Swindon, reminding me I should put my Trailer Park Boy’s marathon on hold and get out more. Ideal Lives is the latest EP from the local lads and is also...

SickOnes – The Debut ‘Volition’ EP.

SickOnes – Frome, England, United Kingdom. ‘This ones on us. Get. At. It.’ SickOnes are about as fresh as it gets with Hardcore. The band formed earlier in 2016 in the sleepy town of Frome just outside the City of Bath. The band’s debut release was met with much local...
