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', 'Whitemare' and early 'Black Peaks' stuff really impressed us! So we hit the studio, and before we knew it we were smashing beer kegs with hammers, scoring violin stabs and laying down choir vocals... Nuts!"

KING LEVIATHAN will be giving a few of these new songs an airing throughout May including dates with Vulgate, the Metal To The Masses Brighton final and finally playing the whole E.P in full when supporting Australian thrash masters 'ELM STREET' at The Prince Albert Brighton, before heading out across the UK in June with 'ABHORRENT DECIMATION.

"We can't wait to get these new tunes out there, we think it's easily the best stuff we've written to date and we're eager to see if the crowds enjoy hearing it as much as we do playing it!"

Catch them live at the following shows in May:

Bar 42, Worthing - *Headline*. Sat 2nd
Finns, Weymouth - *w/ The Rocket Dolls*. Fri 15th
Head Of Steam, Newcastle - *w/ Vulgate*. Tues 19th

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…

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 '…
