Wrapped In Plastic - "Lollygagger" Review



Wrapped In Plastic - "LollyGagger" EP Review
Warped industrial punk rockers , Wrapped In Plastic return with a new EP, "LollyGagger"..Although the definition of this title means to fool around, the band certainly haven't slacked..they have put alot of dark and twisted thoughts into these four tracks, in what could be their most bizarre and best offering yet!..

The brilliantly titled, "Popomatic" is full of spooky strange sounds that compliment the song well..this song is very reminiscent of Marilyn Manson in parts.

"Marionette" it will have you shouting along to the choruses of "Hate, Hate"..Very aggressive lyrics, but we can't help but love it!

"Monkey See" is a fast energetic track, shouting, "Hey, Hey, Hey" throughout, making you what to sing along! Very catchy fast tempo track!

My personal favourite track is, "Voodoo Doll" , as it has a great mix of sounds, riffs and groovy bass lines, and is probably the most angsty,diverse and anthemic track of the four. As well as some great lines like, "We are the world's voodoo doll, put a pin in us and we'll watch them suffer.."; again this is a good line for a alternative anthem. Also I like the whole puppet/dolls and control theme of the EP..interesting!

All the songs have the potential to be alternative industrial anthems, as weird as they may be!..They are weird in the greatest of ways!

This band have such a great industrial underground sound, that is somewhere between NIN, Marilyn Manson, a bit of Korn, and most crucially the sounds of twisted and messed up minds!

The more you listen, the more your love it!

The EP is now available on Amazon!

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)


Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Can you tell us about the formation of Cellar Darling following leaving your previous band Eluveitie and how the band came to be?
Merlin: What I remember most clearly is how quick it went. As you might know, the whole thing with Eluveitie came very unexpected for us - we were informed of a decision by the remain…

REVIEW: Bobaflex - Eloquent Demons

Hard Rockers Bobaflex from West Virginian are back to wreak havoc with their eighth album ‘Eloquent Demons’ which is the follow to 2015’s ‘Anything That Moves’, this sees not only their first release through Thermal Entertainment but their first actual label release in a while after the band decided to go independent. They are a very hardworking and tireless band, having extensively toured, and even setting records for this, they certainly don’t do anything by half measures.
The opening intro and title track sounds very appropriately evil, with a creepy intro speech to set the scene whilst we wait for the demons to be fully unleashed…
First proper track ‘I Am Nightmare’ immediately sees heavy dark guitars and melodic group singing, which give it a classic feel with a gritty edge and is possesses a hell of a powerful chorus, not to mention a killer solo – this will be hard to forget.
Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…

REVIEW: Vrona - Impermanence (Prog Metal)

Prog metallers, Vrona released their debut EP 'A Lapse In Time' last year which received positive press and even led to them being compared to the likes of heavyweights Karnivool, TesseracT and Tool, minus the vocals, as in 2016 they were an instrumental act. Now in 2017, they are back, not only with a new two-track release titled 'Impermanence' but they have also unveiled and added an extra dimension to their already massive sound with the introduction of a vocalist Jamie Ball.

The main title track 'Impermanence' is ambient and textured. The vocals are pleasant, captivating and varied which immediately gives them a different feel and layer, proving that adding vocalist Jamie was a wise move. It features soaring and powerful moments throughout. The fact that they now have vocals doesn't overpower the well crafted and intelligible instruments either but only acts as the perfect unison, with both complimenting each other wonderfully. They are all impressive mu…
