INTERVIEW: Weesp (Belarus)

Electronic alt rock/metal act Weesp hail from Minsk, Belarus and have been delivering their crushing and energetic music since their inception in 2008. In 2015 they finally unleashed their debut album 'The Void' which featured the likes of Cory Brandan from Norma Jean and highlighted them as a band to firmly watch. Luckily their anticipated sophomore release 'Black Sails' is soon to reach our shores and they have already given us a taste of what to expect with some teaser videos (you can view below, with more on the way soon). I caught up with bassist Dmitry (Mi) Budko after their recent tour to discuss their history, the new album and more...



Can you tell us about your formation in 2008?

We all met together a long time ago, in school years. WEESP was formed in 2008 in Minsk, when we have released our first EP album, it was called Ep2008 vol 1 (volume one) and consisted of only 3 tracks. The second volume never came out. In fact, there were about 10 tracks, but we decide…

South West Hardcore Outfit CARRIER Reveal Debut Single From Forthcoming EP

Introducing South West hardcore outfit CARRIER who revealed their debut single release 'Grieve' taken from their forthcoming EP 'Wither'.

The hard-hitting single premiered earlier this week and is the perfect offering to introduce the band to the UK. ‘Grieve’ is a song written about death, expressing the feelings the band went through when they sadly lost a friend. The track is a reflection of the anger they felt, it’s painful and they wanted to give an opportunity to be angry with death as a concept and to be angry with the world for taking people too soon.

Listen to 'Grieve' via the link below:

For fans of Counterparts and August Burns Red, CARRIER have only been a fully functioning band since March 2017. All coming from previous musical backgrounds, the quartet were keen to do something different and they all seemed to have the same idea of what direction they wanted to go in. Their new EP ‘Wither’ combines hardcore and melodic metal …

SUSPERIA Release Lyric Video For New Song 'I Entered'

Norwegian blackened thrash/heavy metallers SUSPERIA, comprising former members of Dimmu Borgir, Satyricon and Old Man's Child, release the first single from their recently announced new studio album, "The Lyricist". Titled "I Entered", the single is available in a form of a lyric video designed by Costin Chioreanu (At The Gates, Paradise Lost, Arch Enemy). Check out the video below:

https://youtu.be/WGQr4cLF63Q







"The Lyricist" will arrive nearly nine years to the day its predecessor ("Attitude", 2009) came out. Its release has been scheduled for the 16th of March, 2018, onAgonia Records. The album is available for pre-ordering HERE.

The origins of SUSPERIA can be traced back to 1998 when Tjodalv, then occupying the drum seat with Dimmu Borgir, and long-time friend Cyrus (ex-Satyricon, Old Man's Child) got together to share ideas and write songs. Clearly rooted and seasoned in the Norwegian black metal scene, SUSPERIA elevated its sound into…

Go Loud Agency Welcomes Swedish Rockers The Hawkins

While in Latvia for a short yet successful mini-tour, the Swedish fourpiece took the opportunity to visit the Go Loud Agency headquarters and ink the deal. The band’s upcoming year is looking brighter than ever, with plenty of shows and projects in the pipeline.

The Hawkins are an energetic, highly-entertaining rock n’ roll piece. Their music is a perfect combination of blues-based rock groove (think Deep Purple) with the bullshit-free attitude of punk rock that most likely would have made Lemmy shed a little tear of joy. Starting in March 2013, the band’s achievements quickly started piling up – including a tour of Russia, performing at world-famous festivals such Sweden Rock Festival, Peace & Love and Metallsvenskan, as well as signing a record deal with Swedish-based label GAIN/Sony Music.
The band has recently released their debut album, Ain’t Rock n Roll expected to be playing in and around Europe throughout 2018, starting with their upcoming tour with Corroded, as seen below.

Rock Trio WEAK13 Release New Viking Style Video For 'Loyal Coward' On January 13th

British independent band WEAK13 have released the 'Loyal Coward' music video set in the Viking Age today (January13th 2018) featuring the Svartland Living History Society. who hail from Wolverley, near Kidderminster. Their latest music video, taken from their album 'They Live', is definitely the most commercial sounding WEAK13 song to date but nothing is ever quite what it seems in regards to how the band functions.
Normally a WEAK13 tune is coated in semiotics, subliminal messages or loud subtext but the first glance of 'Loyal Coward' appears surprisingly landmine free, extremely mainstream and very radio friendly. Whilst on the surface it appears as if this is them selling out it's more than likely that this a clever rouse rather than a U-Turn but are they really playing with people's minds?

WEAK13 is one of the most influential British DIY bands since the millennium age. Always inspiring fresh upcoming bands with their strong anti-mainstream message, m…

The Rocket Dolls Announce 'DeadHead' New Album Details & UK Shows

Explosive rock trio release sophomore album 'DeadHead' this April + UK tour confirmed
Brighton based heavy rock trio THE ROCKET DOLLS are ready to ignite with the news they'll release their full-length new studio album 'DeadHead' on Friday the 6th April and take it on the road for UK live dates. Featuring just the right amount of melody with straight up hook laden driven riffs combined with curveballs when you least expect them, 'DeadHead' is a must hear album for 2018.

Recorded at London's award-winning British Grove Studios (David Gilmour, Razorlight, Mark Knopfler) 'DeadHead' was produced and mixed by Mark Roberts (Black Peaks, Rob Chapman, Toska, Dorje). Relentless in their approach, The Rocket Dolls have taken the rock mould, smashed it, and then meticulously pieced it back together again to deliver a fresh contemporary collection of music that combines the best bits of heavy rock, grunge, punk, and pop smart sensibilities. It's clear the…
