EXCLUSIVE from WEESP - News & Teaser Video of New Single, 'Murderers'!

Weesp for those that don't know are a alternative rock/electronic rock band from Minsk. I have been a fan of their 'spacey out of this world sound' for a while now, and the band have very kindly given me some exclusive news and an awesome teaser video of their new single due out 18th May 2015! See below!



Weesp announces new single coming out May 18th. It would be the first track from upcoming album The Void.

The Void is the 6th bands release and 1st full length album. It will contain much heavier and melodic tracks with many electronic experiments compared to previous releases.

Check out a teaser clip of the dark new video for the upcoming single, 'Murderers':

KING LEVIATHAN ANNOUNCE NEW E.P and RELEASE SHOW

Having only spent just over a year together as a band, Brighton’s KING LEVIATHAN are quickly rising through the ranks of the UK's underground scene with a reputation for blistering tight-as-nails performances that belies the band members ages of just 18 to 23. Last year saw them showcase their brand of 'cultist thrash' across the UK including an appearance at Mammothfest and a main support slot to thrash legends ‘DARKEST HOUR’.

King Leviathan's new E.P 'THE SHRINE' will be released on May 31st.
Track Listing:
WORMWOOD
BORN OF THE BLACKEST HEARTS
SKIN FROM BONE
MADNESS MADE DIVINE
SHRINE

The follow-up to their self-titled 2014 debut, this new 5 track offering 'THE SHRINE' is a marked step forward for the four piece and was recorded over a week long period at Brighton Electric with Producer Paul 'Win' Winstanley at the helm.

"We knew we wanted the next E.P to be bigger and better in all aspects - and Win's work with 'Sea Bastard'…

Luna Rise - 'Smoking Kills, But Love Can Break A Heart' EP Review

Luna Rise from Austria are a melodic rock band who intertwine goth, melancholic pop, hard rock and more to unleash something unique and find the balance of heavy yet emotional soothing explorations. Having just recently signed with NRT-Records they decide to re-issue their momentous EP, ‘Smoking Kills, But Love Can Break A Heart’ for those who may have missed it...



Opening song, ‘When You Fall’ captures their signature sound perfectly, so it’s no surprise it was released as a single. It’s catchy yet with a heavy backdrop with complex guitar riffs and dark brooding deep vocals, all kept coherent with a flowing current of fierce energy with a slight creepy vibe, aided by the keys, making this a great gothic anthem!

‘Dead Alley’ succeeds in being even more melodic especially as it’s driven by emotion – this is such a slick smooth track, which embodies the dark sound exhibited by the mighty guitars and synths along with the lighter elements portrayed by the lyrics, vocals and strong eup…

Mannequin - Harpy Doll Review - Extreme Metal With A Twist!

Mannequin are a recently formed extreme metal duo from the North-East of England, consisting of Benjó James (vocals) and Jack Wilson (guitars) who manage to create a hell of a loud high impact sound!..

'Harpy Doll' taken from their first EP 'From January to Funeral March' is quite something, largely sounding bleak, dark and brutal but with glimpses of hope, shown through the melodic flurries, which strike hard, especially as it's unexpected, but works wonderfully in this brutal relentless track! You are bombarded and astounded throughout this epic seven minute masterpiece, with its fast thrash instruments, gothic creepy undertones, and cunning devious lyrics, which are delivered and match the sound of the song superbly with brilliant extreme vocals from Benjó. Benjó's vocals are made all the more impressive by the fact that he remains audible and understandable still even when screaming, which can be a struggle sometimes within this genre. By the end of the song…

SPINEFARM DROPS THE NEEDLE FOR RECORD STORE DAY 2015..

Releases from Turbowolf, Atreyu, Venom & SikTh confirmed for April 18th release…



SPINEFARM RECORDS will be supporting Record Store Day 2015 with a number of releases highlighting different aspects of the rock ‘n’ metal genre…

Taking said genre into brave new worlds are UK riff-gurus Turbowolf, who have just released their new / second studio album, ‘Two Hands’, via Spinefarm Records / Search & Destroy. Having recently toured with both Royal Blood & Death From Above 1979, advocates of the Turbowolf cause, the Bristol quartet are now very much on an upward trajectory, with Radio 1 playing the recent singles (‘Rabbits Foot’ & ‘Nine Lives’), and a headline UK tour currently underway…




On the other side of the Atlantic, Atreyu are a band who have already left a serious mark… One of the key architects of the '00s American metal resurgence, selling over a million albums in a 10 year period, the Orange County outfit simmered on the back-burner after 2009… but now they’re ba…

Mammothfest tv is an excellent medium to discover and appreciate new emerging and heavyweight metal acts within the UK and around the world, and is something we are in need of, as there's not a lot of shows around like this! Discussed in this latest episode is the thriving metal scene from extreme metal and UK festivals, including Damnation Festival and Temples Festival, and of course previews of the international bands that are due to grace our ears at Mammothfest 2015! They also mention worthy bands that help create the amazing metal scene we have such as:

All this is delivered in a sincere, down to earth and passionate manner from founder and creator of Mammothfest, the legend tha…

fREEX Artist Focus - "Free Expression" Champions!

fREEX from San Franciso Bay Area are driving a forefront of an emerging new genre, known as “Free Expression” by creating their own unique sound by using the essence of punk, grunge, funk and more! For their bold and creative methods they are the front runners of this new exciting scene which is waiting to explode!


‘God, I Love America’ is a great introductory to the band’s sound and style and what they embody! Treating us to a bit of blues, melodic harmonies and then manic grunge punk group chants and bursts of loudness to keep you guessing, making a quick transition between mellow sounds and madness in an unpredictable but very welcome manner!

‘Is There Something Wrong’ best displays their elements of alternative rock and pop, especially present in the beaming chorus! This is completely different sounding to the first song I listened to – you wouldn’t know it’s the same band, but just demonstrates their vastness and creative diversity!

‘Mental Rental’ dives right in with speedy agg…

Majentta - Burst

Looking for upcoming talent which is different and inspiring..Majentta a new female artist from LA is one to look out for! She has just released a new video and single called, 'Burst' which is powerful, atmospheric and haunting, which displays her beautiful unique far reaching vocals which fit the video perfectly. The video itself is mysterious, dark and compelling and more than just your average music video, being more like a mini film, which is rather impressive especially considering by an independent artist; So the video and song combined make quite an first impression! I for one am intrigued to hear more of her sombre alternative rock/pop sound and see how the music will be portrayed visually! 

Be sure to check out the brilliant video in question for 'Burst':
