Damned Implant and Their ‘Dirt Rock’.

Damned Implant – St. Helens, England, United Kingdom. Soaked in dark, damp but oh so inviting dirty Blues Rock, Damned Implant have recently released a politically charged two-piece assault on the current order of things. The band hail from St. Helens and after a long absence from creating music have...

Low Sun – ‘Reservoir Of Impermanent Bliss’.

Low Sun – Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Canada is not the warmest of places a lot of the time and that is something that Toronto two-piece Low Sun a know all to well. What was supposed to be a idyllic winter retreat in a family cottage to record their first full-length...

Sunderfeet – ‘Nightmare For Myself’.

Sunderfeet – Strasbourg, France. Now, that might not be the best album cover artwork you’ve seen this week but it being from a band that describe themselves as a ‘Stoner-Grunge-Power-Trio’, you suddenly let it off the hook and even condone it. It’s always better not to be boring after all. Nightmare For...

Fresh Picks: Kill The Drama Queen.

Kill The Drama Queen – Luxembourg/France/Belgium. Fresh Picks are designed to give readers all the reasons they will need to indulge in whatever facet of underground music we come across, a short – ish – take on a band or artist to entice the prospective listener with enough name-drops, genre-tags...

Gold Phoenix At A Glance…

Gold Phoenix – Surrey, England, United Kingdom. Another band found in the depths of our overflowing inbox, Gold Phoenix hail from Surrey and play Rock n’ Roll. To be more specific, this is a band that yearn for the sounds of the legends so influential. The likes of ACDC and Eagles...

DOT – ‘DOT’.

DOT – Toulouse/Bath, France/United Kingdom. Cover photo credit: Imag’in Live – Click Here. The two-piece band dynamic is somewhat popular these days with big names such as Royal Blood, Slaves, Sleaford Mods etc… garnering the majority of the popularity and credit to the formula and fair play to them. However, it...

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,...

Brain Ape Return With ‘Auslander’.

Brain Ape – London, England, United Kingdom. For our previous work on the band – Click Here. Photography credit – Gregory Hesse-Wagner. Ah, Brain Ape. A strange band from London with revolving members quite literally in and out of humanity. For now the three-piece are to be believed wholly human although many...

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...
