Myco - Myceliated Single Review





Myco is a psychedelic project created by Kyle Henry from Kansas City, which only launched in December 2015. The name Myco is the scientific term for fungi, and their debut single is in-keeping with this theme, seeing as it is called, "Myceliated" which is about fungus and the influence it has on the universe and the human race...far out right?!...

You are instantly dazzled and pulled in by the synth electro ambience, which is chilled yet has a playful vibe. The guitar has a nice tone, and has some impressive memorable moments, which compliments well with the weird electro sounds. As you may expect, it features some complex and intriguing trippy lyrics such as, "Inside the earth lies plexus of fungus, interconnecting everything symbiosis", which is delivered in a smooth and pleasing vocal performance throughout. The vocals float wonderfully alongside the distant ethereal music, making it easy to lose yourself in their soothing vibrant and strange sounds. For a debut offering this is well composed, produced and mastered. It also stands out with their theme and sound, as they have embraced the idea behind it brilliantly and intelligible to match the music.

Their first EP is due for release shortly, being early 2016, which will feature a range of styles, all being on the psychedelic side though, which you would expect given their band name and concept! So until then, learn about the power of fungi in this debut, and let's see what strange dream like journey's Myco take us on in the future!

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…

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…
