Mutoid Man – ‘Bleeder’

The term “supergroup” is something that can get banded around half-heartedly in this day and age, just because a band is made up of members of other bands. When superlatives like that are used, it also means that the bands work doesn’t always get to shine as a separate entity to its creators day jobs […]

Refused – ‘Freedom’

Refused are fucking dead. Or at least, so we thought when the band unveiled those words at the head of an open letter to mark their demise in 1998. It was the end of the band and the start of a cult. The Swedish forerunners would go on to gain unprecedented popularity and importance in […]

Citizen – ‘Everybody Is Going To Heaven’

It seems like only yesterday Citizen released their critically acclaimed debut ‘Youth’, which was filled with emotive lyrical musings over melodic punk sweetness, and there’s no denying it drew more than a few comparisons to a certain Long Island, NY band. In the two years that have passed in it’s wake, the climate of modern […]

Thomas Nicholas Band – ‘Security’
