MORDRED officially release new single The Baroness Feb 3rd, Bloodstock Festival slot now confirmed!‏





Following on from their triumphant and long awaited return to these shores, one of the late great John Peel's favourites MORDRED officially release their first new single for over 20 years, THE BARONESS on February 3rd.





As fierce and funky, brash and brilliant as ever, this is a metaliciously groovy taste of what's to come this summer from this innovative band of San Franciscan musicians when they release their long awaited new EP, with an album pending for later in the year.

MORDRED will be supporting this new release with a UK and European tour, including a slot on Sunday on the Sophie Stage at BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR festival which we're all incredibly stoked about!

This band blazed a rip-roaring trail across both sides of the big pond back in '89 with their superb debut 'Fools Game', it's taken a couple of decades to get them back in full gear again but with a new EP pending, it's a very exciting time for fans, both new and old alike, of this unique bunch of San Fran reprobates!

"..this is a massive performance...highlights, though, are the raptastic Esse Quam Videri and a stunning cover of Thin Lizzy's Johnny The Fox Meets Jimmy The Weed. But the whole occasion is simply a joy. The atmosphere, the musicianship, the song choice... it all works. And Mordred's combination of metal, funk and hip-hop sounds convincingly contemporary"
Malcolm Dome, Metal Hammer

"Mordred's return to Belfast after two decades is nothing less than triumphant....No band has ever really managed to better what Mordred did, and with the prospect of a new release this could hopefully be the beginning of a renaissance for the band. All in all, a faultless gig"
MetalIreland.com

"Back in '91 I heralded Mordred's legendary Marquee show as the greatest night of my life, but....I can safely say I was wrong because some 23 years later I'm finding myself saying it again. Without a shadow of a doubt, Mordred will always be the coolest band to grace stage, vinyl, cassette, disc and ears." Metal Forces.

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…

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…
