Judgement Centre and The Debut EP.

Judgement Centre – Barnstaple, England, United Kingdom. The irregular line-up is becoming more and more common in our underground music scene and in doing so is injecting much needed new variety and that is something crucial. The mighty two-piece usually variates between the axe or bass-axe alongside a drummer, with...

Black Tree Suns – ‘Wash Them All Away’.

Black Tree Suns – Plymouth, England, United Kingdom. For our previous work on the band – Click Here. The Plymouth based Black Tree Suns are a band for those whose taste primarily sits in a sea of riffs, a sea not too metallic but rather bluesy in nature while soaring...

Fresh Picks: Malfunc Prism.

Malfunc Prism – Freiburg, Germany. The cover photo used is very fitting for a band who can’t decide how to describe themselves or who are further confused by those who try to describe them. Malfunc Prism of Freiburg have been compared to the likes of Pearl Jam, The Distillers, Deftones,...

Underwing and The Debut ‘Kaela Upsweep’.

Underwing – Arendal, Norway. Cover photo credit: Jasmin Moriko. ‘Progressive Grunge’ is a term I hadn’t heard until I received a review request from Norway’s Underwing. To understand this I would say try to envision a concoction of vintage Red Hot Chili Peppers, Soundgarden, Audioslave, Pearl Jam and Tool. This was...

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...

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...

Two Matt’s, One Review: ‘Signal Lost’ – Television Villain.

Television Villain – Bath, England, United Kingdom. Editor’s/Co-author’s note: Having both seen Television Villain play live, and having met vocalist Dan Stothard on numerous occasions, myself an fellow MF writer, Matthew Mansell, decided we would combine efforts to review the band’s debut EP, Signal Lost.  It’s not something we do on Musically...

Yawning Dog – ‘Grow’/’Don’t Be Shy, Vlad’- New Sounds and Upcoming Tour

Yawning Dog – Hemsworth, England, United Kingdom. You may remember our work on these ‘STONER GRUNGE PUNKY MONKEYS’ from back in October last year. Mr. Fresh, AKA Stefan, gave his thoughts on the band’s Doll/Torso and Sugar/Jar EPs. We ended up awarding them ‘Breakthrough Act of the Year’ in our awards for 2014. So,...
