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)


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…

INTERVIEW: Mutation (with Ginger Wildheart & Scott Lee Andrews)

Interview with Ginger Wildheart & Scott Lee Andrews of Mutation 


Mutation are an extreme metal act from the UK formed in 2013 by well-known vocalist/guitarist Ginger Wildheart, the man behind the rock group The Wildhearts and the frontman of Exit International, Scott Lee Andrews. The trio is completed by drummer known as Denzel (Dean Pearson) who has been involved in many projects with Ginger and plays in Young Legionnaire. I caught up with Ginger and Scott to discuss the beginnings of Mutation, the new album '‘Mutation III: Dark Black’, touring, the future, mental health and much more in this interesting and honest interview.



As a musician who has played in many bands, most notably The Wildhearts and formed many projects, how did you come to form Mutation and why when you did?

Ginger: I did it mainly because I wanted to make the music that was in my head, and it didn’t look like anyone else wanted to do it.

At the time I was playing and writing with Michael Monroe, and while I l…

REVIEW: A Killer's Confession - Unbroken

A Killer's Confession is led by former Mushroomhead vocalist Waylon Reavis. The album was recorded in Kentucky, and the anticipated debut comes thanks to David Ellefson of Megadeth’s EMP Label Group. For their debut, they enlisted some friend's and exciting guests appearances to add to the intrigue which raises the stakes high for their first offering...

Opening track 'Awakening' is a short and unhinged scene setter for what lies ahead. Stand out track and latest single 'Rebirth' is atmospheric, melodic and consuming with prominent bass and powerful drums.

The first single self-named title track, 'A Killer's Confession' features none other than Brian 'Head' Welch from Korn on guitar. It sounds strange and eerie through the use of electronic sounds and is a must hear. This is one menacing and crushing track which wouldn't sound out of place on an actual Korn album.

The second half of the album treats us to more guest collaborations with '…
