SKUNK ANANSIE RELEASE SECOND SINGLE ‘DEATH TO THE LOVERS’ FROM CURRENT STUDIO ALBUM ‘ANARCHYTECTURE’, OUT NOW ON SPINEFARM RECORDS IN THE UK


EUROPEAN HEADLINE TOUR, INCLUDING 2 UK SHOWS, SET FOR FEB 2016


Skunk Anansie have released a second track from their sixth studio album, ‘Anarchytecture’, out now via Spinefarm Records. The single, ‘Death To The Lovers’, is a revealing and deeply emotional track, Skin’s genuine delivery will pierce your heart…

“‘Death To The Lovers’ is about the loss of intimacy in a relationship,” says Skin, “that grey area between love and hate you fall into just before it's truly over. There is desperation, there is the realisation that it can't last, but there's still hope. Musically, it’s another electronic experiment from us, something fresh and contemporary, but very Skunk.”


A music video for ‘Death To The Lovers’ will be revealed shortly.



‘Anarchytecture’ was released on January 15th to much critical acclaim and impressive official chart positions, including the #5 album spot in Italy.


Skunk Anansie’s sixth album wears its musical diversity and its queer sexuality like badges of pride. And so it should. Like Queen or Muse, they’re at their best when they push beyond the narrow centre ground of hard rock in search of something bigger, stranger and more glamorous” – CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE



“Skin remains one of the greatest vocalists on the circuit” – CLASH



“More big riffs and spine-tingling vocals from the reunited British Rock veterans” – KERRANG!



‘Anarachytecture’ is available to purchase here via Amazon or here via iTunes.

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…

REVIEW: Vrona - Impermanence (Prog Metal)

Prog metallers, Vrona released their debut EP 'A Lapse In Time' last year which received positive press and even led to them being compared to the likes of heavyweights Karnivool, TesseracT and Tool, minus the vocals, as in 2016 they were an instrumental act. Now in 2017, they are back, not only with a new two-track release titled 'Impermanence' but they have also unveiled and added an extra dimension to their already massive sound with the introduction of a vocalist Jamie Ball.

The main title track 'Impermanence' is ambient and textured. The vocals are pleasant, captivating and varied which immediately gives them a different feel and layer, proving that adding vocalist Jamie was a wise move. It features soaring and powerful moments throughout. The fact that they now have vocals doesn't overpower the well crafted and intelligible instruments either but only acts as the perfect unison, with both complimenting each other wonderfully. They are all impressive mu…
