Pegasus - Fairy Tale EP Review





Pegasus are a fresh French metalcore quintet who have previously only released a couple of singles. Now they have more to offer in their debut EP, Fairy Tale which is unleashed to the masses on the 20th February...

Opener, The Shadow Of Our Soul has an ethereal hopeful intro with distant deep screams and melodic ambient riffs. The breakdown is bad ass and it keeps things changeable throughout, making for a thrilling start...

Mirror, Mirror features melodic striking guitars which are highly sonic and resonant, creating a very enjoyable metalcore offering, and showing the high standards and coherency of the EP.

We reach title track, Fairy Tale which opens on a beautiful dream like state, before being treated to some clean vocals here, for effect and emphasis, keeping things diverse and unpredictable. This is a strong number, that portrays the vibe and sound of the overall release wonderfully. It demonstrates them at their best, showing their individual talents, as well as their tight unit performance.

Innocence has a great surrounding presence, resulting in a pleasing extremely tuneful metal track - something they seem to have mastered!

Closing the EP is, Sacrament which is fast and makes for a high impact, with some seriously nasty sounds injected to add to the heavy core that runs through their sound. This is the sort of song that will have the crowd going wild to scream along too!

They have conjured up a interesting complex, and ambient metalcore sound ,which also comes across very professional. For a debut release, this is exciting and has the perfect balance of light and dark moments, making for some extremely melodic metal that should go down a storm! They are early into their career, but this a brilliant start, producing a flawless EP that is satisfying on the ears!

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…
