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!

Rock Duo SONS Release Video Single 'Marco' Raising Awareness Of Mental Health & Gun Control

Brighton punk rockers are back and hitting hard once again with their new video single 'Marco'. They have released a powerful video to accompany the song which was directed by Graham Cullis.

Check out the video for 'Marco' below:




The band states that: "The Message in this video is primarily to promote mental health illness awareness and how we need to cure the mind to help prevent tragedy that often occurs due to ignorance of others dismissing the people that need help." 

Although ‘Marco’ was inspired by shootings in the USA such as the Stoneman Douglas High School incident and the YouTube attack in this video shows that gun control is something that needs to be addressed globally. As well as some cases in the US the video also shows footage of the Nairobi mall massacre in Kenya and the aftermath of the Dunblane Primary School in Scotland. SONS are fully behind any campaign aimed at tightening gun laws and making people more responsible with their firearms so th…

DESERT STORM ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM 'SENTINELS'
TO BE RELEASED MARCH 16TH ON APF RECORDS!
2018 marks the return of Oxford-based sludge-metal titans Desert Storm as they prepare to follow the release of 2014’s critically-acclaimed ‘Omniscient’ album with their new opus ‘Sentinels’, confirmed for release this coming March 16th via APF Records.


Recorded with engineer Jamie Dodd (Orange Goblin) at Flesh & Bone Studio's, Hackney and tracked by Steve 'Geezer' Watkins at Woodworm studios (which has also been used by legendary Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi), ‘Sentinels’ is a colossal sounding record, it’s ten tracks punching the listener with an oppressive towering monolithic sound that batters, but never dulls the senses.


“This album is a natural progression from our previous releases,” explains guitarist Ryan Cole. “It has the Desert Storm sound, but has moved in a much harder, darker and heavier direction.”



Today we get to hear the first rumblings from ‘Sentinels’ in …
