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...

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...

Papertank and The Debut ‘Playground’.

Papertank – La Chaux De Fonds, Switzerland. Switzerland three-piece Papertank recently released their debut album on Division Records and what an album it indeed is.

Brain Ape – London, England, United Kingdom. For our previous work on the band – Click Here. Brain Ape are a London band that we keep good tabs on at MF. The band are somewhat idiosyncratic in some ways, as although they like many toil in and out of all...

Demonic Death Judge – ‘Seaweed’.

Demonic Death Judge – Kotka, Finland. Cover photo credit – Simo P. J. Ulvi. Demonic Death Judge. What to say about a band with such a name and such a back catalogue. DDJ have been steadily and in the fashion of Stoner Rock and Metal, slowly but surely and in the most...

Faith In Glory – ‘Opia’ The Debut Album.

Faith In Glory – Bolton/Blackburn, England, United Kingdom. Faith In Glory are a self proclaimed Hard Rock band from Bolton and Blackburn. Now the term Hard Rock implies and provides certain imagery, bands and eras no matter the age of the person reading the term. Faith In Glory are certainly...

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...
