Glamour Of The Kill: After Hours EP – Review

Throughout this 5 song EP, Yorkshire’s Glamour of the Kill really show some balls. There’s fantastic choruses, glorious riffs and fantastic songwriting coursing embedded in here.

In the last few years, Britain’s come back biting with the amount of new talent that it’s been lucky to have given birth to. Bands like Bring Me the Horizon, You Me At Six, Enter Shikari, and Young Guns have had staggering success across the pond in the USA and Australia, as well as tours […]

The Sky We Scrape – Broken Ladders

The twenty-five seconds of intro feedback on the Sky We Scrape’s ‘Broken Ladders’ EP elicit deep memories of bro-heavy hardcore shows in legion halls—that familiar tension conjures images of muscular, young men in black jeans and t-shirts, armed with electric guitars and bent at both knees before half-stacks in a battle-ready power stance. The imposing […]

And We Danced – ‘Back To The Middle’

‘Back To the middle’ is the hugely enjoyable the debut release from And We Danced.
