The celestial all-singing, all-dancing act consists of the Hail Marys choir and their band The Missionary Position, …

It was the middle of May 2020 when Felicia released her first musical exploits to the world, in the shape of ‘Felicia and the Gammon Lumps’. Now, almost two years later, comes the full-length Felicia album, to be released (of course) on Valentines Day this year. Opening with a suitably alt-metal double-kick drum instrumental-avec-samples, ‘Feel …

The City Kids; low down, gruff, n’ dirty, with enough of a smattering of pop-harmonies to ear-worm their way into your head and refuse to leave again. That’s pretty much the TL:DR of the debut album by this rag-tag collection of reprobates, which featured as guests, amongst others, legends like Kory Clarke of Warrior Soul …

If you’ve not heard of Johnossi before, the Swedish rock duo – consisting of guitarist/vocalist John Englebert and drummer Ossi Bonde – are already six albums and a Grammy Award down and with this, their seventh record, the duo have dug deep into their own psyches and imaginations to realise something part-concept album, part catharthis, …

Ok. For those new to the party (sorry, ‘work event’), back in the late ’80s and early ’90s there was Warrior Soul, and a trio of quite frankly stunning records – 1990’s ‘Last Decade Dead Century’, 1991’s Drugs, God, And The New Republic’, and 1992’s ‘Salutations From The Ghetto Nation’.

Also produced by Auerbach, …

The children of musical parents have a mixed blessing when it comes to career springboards; some find the understanding and support (and potentially the genetic passing on of whatever ‘talent’ actually is) a huge help. Others, it seems, find a famous parent a millstone that’s difficult to escape from. For Steve Conte, and brother John, …

When we reviewed their last single, we described Seven Days and Doesn’t Die as “snarling, sneering, punk-tinged rock n’ roll, with an aggression that many bands aspire to but so few pull off with such aplomb, yet filled with singalong, gang-vocal chorus and hooklines that sink their teeth in and refuse to let go”.  Seven …

Legendary Swedish high energy hard rock band The Hellacopters have signed with Nuclear Blast records, with a new studio album already in the bag slated for an early 2022 release. Whilst the excitement over a new album – their eighth studio album, and the first all-new material since 2005’s Rock and Roll is Dead (and …

Take multi-instrumentalist Michael J. York (Coil, The Utopia Strong) and the incredible vocal talents of Katherine Blake (Mediaeval Baebes), and the end result is something totally out of this world – folklore and mysticism, early Arabian and Mediaeval music, first millennia Eastern poetry blended together with Poe, Scott and Chesterton.
