Murder Mile - Debut EP - Murder Mile Hard Core



Image of MMHC


Murder Mile are a thrash hardcore crossover band from the UK, who have recently released their vexed new EP, titled Murder Mile Hard Core, which sums up the offering brilliantly..

Opening track, ‘Brass Knuckles’ is a heavy slab of old school hardcore with modern thrash elements! It packs a punch with its colossal speed, belligerent screams, top class riffage and shredding solo, to add extra depth, showcasing their blend of angry at the world metal in style!

‘Burn The Hag’ offers no respite in this brutal assault of dark catchy riffs – although the tempo is slower than first offering it is still hot as hell metal.

‘Deathwish’ has a melodic more mellow intro, but this doesn’t last long! It features effective gang chants, in what is the most infectious track so far with many a head banging moment!

‘Devils’ displays some well-crafted instrumental sections, especially with tuneful riffs and breakdowns in this manic frenzied short lived explosion!

So we come to the end with, ‘Fall’ which keeps up the fast paced momentum seen throughout. Again we are treated to some melodic fierce chants in the chorus, along with nasty dark chugging guitars, fast drums, and some of the best vocal screams, ending in an unforgettable fashion, with them going out with all they have got and more!

This is one angry son of a bitch that you need to take notice off. It will get you riled up and trample all over you in the greatest sense with their no nonsense enraged thrash metal!

Rome Will Burn Self Titled EP Review





Rome Will Burn are still newcomers, but this electronic alternative pop duo from Arizona, consisting of Alyssa Suede and Manifesto are certainly making an impression with their recently released self titled EP..

First song and latest single, 'Chameleon' radiantly opens with complementary electronic and synth sounds to match the repetitive yet effective vocals. It has brilliant rhythms and melody, and the use of strong language, gives it a slightly harder pop edge. This will easily hide in your mind and is adaptable for listeners, as they achieve what they set out too, with their electronic pop with a difference!

'These Three Words' has a more fragile air to it, with stand out emotive vocals that resonant wonderfully, with sweet sappy lyrics to fit the context, showing they can diversify more-so, and with charming results.

'Waging Romance' has a dramatic more serious feel to, but is very strong and infectiously catchy, making it a must hear, and features some almost folk inspired sounds which keeps things exciting and fresh, and shows of the duo's eclectic tastes and talents well.

'Live By The Beat' truly embodies the 'beat' and keeps it strong and pounding throughout, in what is one of the most mainstream pop offerings so far, making for a great hit dance track contender with it's electronic pulse.

Final song, 'Body Language' is very slick and sultry and captures this in the synth sounds well, before diving into a full blown pop in your face explosion, which is extremely groovy and will make you want to move your 'body'. Again there are some surprises here, with talking to add to context and dance and folk elements again. 

Rome Will Burn is a bit out of the norm for me, but that being said, this is a fun, exciting, intelligible and enjoyable self titled release. In these five songs, they manage to inject their unique influences and different moods in a clever and well constructed way. The duo's pretence is that people think there is nothing new or interesting in the genre of electronic pop, and I think anyone who hears this will easily agree that Rome Will Burn smash this idea and come out strong with their unique blend of electronic music. If you are looking for something inspiring and unusual, look no further!

Mars Royal - Berserker Single Review





Alternative rockers, Mars Royal from Indiana are looking to grow on their expanding fan-base, and with new single, "Berserker", and a new EP due for release late spring/early summer 2016, now is a crucial time for the band.

The intro to, "Berserker" gains your attention with isolated drumming, before distorted guitars kick in, and is quickly accompanied by the full swing of vibrant instruments. The vocals jump in at a fast pace and possess plenty of positivity, in both delivery and lyrically. As although the title could well suggest this single is some brutal insane creation, it is quite the musical opposite, which makes a surprising contradiction, being rather chilled out with hopeful inspiring energy, and having an almost indie feel good vibe, which the majority should enjoy.

Mars Royal have a interesting and refreshing sound they have produced through their array of influences, so it will be good to see what musical journey they embark upon on their upcoming EP.
