INTERVIEW: The Rocket Dolls (UK)

Brighton rock trio have just unleashed their sophomore album 'DeaDHeaD' which is going down a storm with rock fans and press alike and they have quickly established themselves as a rising rock band to look out for and as a result, they have secured festival appearances this summer at Ramblin’Man Fair, Wildfire Festival and more. The band are currently on their UK tour supporting the album so I caught up with vocalist/guitarist Nikki Smash to discuss this, the new album and more...

Can you tell us about your formation?


We all met in college and all shared the same drive, passion about being in a Riff/Grunge Band outfit and when we formed Indie was huge and we hated it and almost wanted to get rid of it, haha! We were all session musicians and weren’t enjoying that so we decided to make the plunge and started the band!



How did you come up with your band name?

I was watching MTV2 or MTV rocks really late at night one of those I’m not going to sleep tonight, nights. Ricky Rocket from…

MIDNATTSOL Release Lyric Video For 'THE AFTERMATH'

Nordic symphonic metal masters MIDNATTSOL have just released the official lyric video for the title track of their upcoming new album “The Aftermath” which will be released on May 25th via Napalm Records.

MIDNATTSOL now has true full sister power featuring Liv Kristine and Carmen Elise! The name "Espenæs“ rightfully makes a lot of people swoon – as both sisters have been a vital part of a magnitude of gothic / symphonic / folk metal milestones. Until this point a supergroup involving both sisters sharing microphone duties was only the stuff only dreams were made of. Now it is a reality!

The band comments on the track:
“As a huge thank you for waiting for us all these years, here is another song for you before the release of our new album! It contains a message that we want to reach out with; What do you think it is?”

“The Aftermath” relies much more heavily on folk influences lending atmospheric density to the melancholic symphonic metal compositions. A sumptuous and sensual affair a…

REVIEW: Spiricom - Hammer Of Witches EP

Spiricom is a instrumental act comprised of duo Steven K. Smith (percussion,keyboards and synths) and Marc Cody (Guitarist) from Ohio. This new EP consists of three companion pieces which evoke how men wielded pain, fire, and unyielding conviction in the pursuit of holy purification. So join them on their enlightening discover...

The opening song 'Strappado' which translates as a form of torture is tense with hush voices and alarming synth noises which seems fitting but it quickly progresses into something more calming and ethereal yet keeps an underlying sense of sorrow. It features more layers and tunefulness as it goes on and the ending cleverly picks up where the beginning started and ends with some eerie spoken words making for a captivating start.

'The Burn' is the shortest offering and is ambient, hopeful and depthful, making for a great and pleasant track and one to let wash over you and reflect upon life.

The final song 'The Witch Hammer' has a more omino…

SERENE DARK (formerly Endemise) Unleash A Brutal “Dualitatem”

Like a blackened metallic phoenix rising from the ashes of their previous band Endemise; Ottawa’s SERENE DARK intends to take their extreme metal to new heights. Recently morphing from Endemise to SERENE DARK, these demons have joined forces for the premiere of their debut track “Dualitatem”, which will be featured on the band’s 2018 album.

Guitarist Dale Sauve explains:“We have been making metal with our current line-up for the past 7 years and decided a new name and fresh start was in order. Our former band Endemise formed over 12 years ago and it went through so many line-up changes and musical directions, we decided to put that band to rest and create Serene Dark as a fresh start.”

Inspired by Septicflesh, Behemoth, Watain, Dark Funeral and Dissection, SERENE DARK‘s sound is dark, heavy, entrancing, emotional, and orchestral.

Sauve adds:

“It will be received as a new, but familiar sound for any previous fans of our last band…We want our fans to get lost in the music. We want to peak s…
