Red Martian - Ghost Into The Fog EP Review

Red Martian describe their sound as neue-shoegazer, as they are trying to bring back this genre from the late 80s/early 90s that was born, known as Post-Paisley Underground but they have done so with a modern twist, to help create their own 'alien' sound on their new concept EP..
Opening title track, "Ghost Into The Fog" is highly atmospheric and melodic, with well written lyrics and vocals that sound distant from front-man, Stephen..like that of objects clouded by 'fog'. This is an intelligible offering which makes for a great opener!
"None" sounds instantly more upbeat with solid rock vibes still, and brilliant instrumental sections to lose yourself in, and transcend even further, with spacey sounding vocals to add to the ambient huge presence this one has. It also keeps you guessing with transitions in timing!
The next track is know as みなぞう which means 'Minazo' of course! Everyone knows that?!..So yeah this perfectly normal named track i…

Hollow Water - Review/Feature - Up & Coming Instrumental UK Act!

Hollow Water are a instrumental two-piece outfit, consisting of Huw Roberts on guitar, and Alan Cookson on keyboards/drum programming. Based in Aberystwyth, Wales, UK they have created a strange and wonderful sound, so why not take some time to listen and appreciate their previously released material, in time for their interesting upcoming sci-fi album, "Rainbow's End", featuring a diverse range of musicians from all over the world, in what is to be a concept album inspired by an original photo taken by member, Alan Cookson..

"A New Idea That Won't Get Finished" has a mellow majestic feel, created through the synth sounds from Alan, and pleasant harmonious guitar work from Huw. It has a great overall ambient presence and progresses well throughout, making it an enjoyable track to help wash away your troubles..and although the title suggests an idea won't get finished..rest assured their upcoming concept album will be finished by the turn of the year!

Marc Vanderberg - "The Four Elements" EP Review/Feature

Marc Vanderberg is a talented guitarist and songwriter from Germany, who is influenced by well known guitarists, Kee Marcello, John Norum and Yngwie Malmsteen. His influences certainly shine through in his new collection of songs in EP, "The Four Elements", especially with some impressive surprise guest vocalists!!..
Opening song, "Storm, Thunder and Lightning" is a slow power metal ballad, with soft vocals, from Paulo Cuevas, that still hit hard, as we see brilliant vocal abilities and range from him, which is mighty and impressive! That along with superb harmonies and melodies, makes this a dangerously beautiful concoction, like that of a 'storm'!

"Devil May Care" sees a change in pace, and gets things off to a soaring start, with dark old school vocals from the mighty Swedish vocalist, Goran Edman (Ex Malmsteen/Norum), and Marc showing off his killer guitar work, in this all out heavy metal anthem!

"Corrosion Of Society" is fast paced, w…

Threatpoint - Interview - "Be ready to move... move or be moved, as we say!"

Threatpoint is a groove metal band based out of Scranton, Pennsylvania pulling influences from all of the rock and metal spectrum. I caught up with them and asked them about their sound, influences and the future, including their third album which they are currently working on, so be sure to read all about it and check out their technical groove metal!..


For those that aren't familiar, how would you describe your music?

Groove metal, simply put. We don't focus on technique or ability... just what we think is good song writing and what would move a live crowd.


What would you say are your biggest influences, creatively and musically?

We all grew up with a passion for music and playing music. Between all of us, bands like The Doors, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth, Testament, Sepultura, Pantera and Devildriver to name a few... you can't help but be influenced by what you listen to


So you recently parted ways with your bassist, Eric Ross and welcomed Matt Van Fleet (formerly of…
