Exowaves - "There's No Fun" Single Review!

Put extra 'good' in your Good Friday with Exowaves new single!

Exowaves are a upcoming 'futuristic rock 'n' roll' quartet from Stoke On Trent, UK, who formed in 2015. 'There's No Fun' is the second single from their upcoming anticipated album. The band are already making 'waves', as earlier this year they picked up the award for Best Music Act in 6 Towns Radio Awards, and following this latest release, this is just the start of what is to come...


The song opens in a dramatic and alarming way, with resonant screams, quickly gaining your attention, before the groovy atmospheric dark riffs and beats kick in! It oozes with great rock 'n' roll swagger, and even a hint of punk rock attitude, aided by the snarling fierce vocals declaring, "There's no fun"! The gritty instruments to accompany are just as hard hitting, making this a must hear refreshing raw modernised rock offering!





'There's No Fun' is out 25/3/16 (toda…

EMP LABEL GROUP FORMS EMP UNDERGROUND IMPRINT - FIRST SIGNINGS INCLUDE HELSTAR, SKUMLOVE, SOLUS DEUS

EMP Label Group, the label founded by Megadeth’s David Ellefson , has announced the formation of EMP UNDERGROUND, an imprint which will release and distribute music from more “underground, extreme and subversive artists.” Says Operations manager and EMP UNDERGROUND co-founder Thöm Hazaërt. “A lot of the stuff we have been signing to EMP has been more Hard Rock and mainstream metal, and we wanted to create an outlet for signing some of the amazing heavier/weirder/more extreme artists that have been coming to us, without all the pressure of the big releases on EMP. And that’s exactly what we’ve created with EMP Underground.”

He adds, “We have found some great releases, and we get so many amazing submissions from the heavier end of the spectrum, and David and I talked and we really wanted to create an outlet for some of this other stuff that didn’t necessarily fit on EMP proper.”

Distributed via eOne and SPV, the first signings to the imprint include Thrash metal stalwarts (and former Mega…

Watch Bring Me The Horizon's Apocalyptic New Mental Video!!

British rock band, Bring Me The Horizon have just unleashed an insane nightmarish video, which was created by frontman, Oli Sykes and director, Frank Borin (has worked with The Vamps, 5 Seconds Of Summer). Its highlights include, zombies, a plane crash and asteriods...but I won't spoil all the fun! It must be seen to be believed, so watch this crazy gore fest and enjoy the new single, 'Follow You', taken from latest album, 'That's The Spirit'. Spoiler Alert...I think you have to admire the 'spirit' of the lead character in the video! 

I think actually amongst all the carnage, it has a rather nice message about love! Although there are lots of interpretations and meanings here. I think we can all relate about getting lost in music, and not care what is going on in the world for that duration of the song, but this may over step the mark!! What do you think?!










On a side note: if you are a fan of gore or horror, you may like to check out my top Zombie Rock son…

Left In The Dark - Shadowglass Album Review

This quartet from Dayton, OH have only been together for two years, and in that time they wrote their debut album, 'Shadowglass'. The band are multi talented, as not only did they write and record the album, the vocalist, Josh Schaurer and drummer, Brian Gerth mixed and mastered it too, so a lot of hard work has gone into this first offering. With an interesting blend and delivery, Left In The Dark are looking to unleash a new style of rock...


The album opens on a haunting atmospheric piano intro, before going into first proper song, 'Denial', which is moody and far reaching, kicking things of in powerful way...


'Lie To Me' raises the bar higher, as it unravels a more aggressive metal side, creating a striking sound, which is all encompassing and very compelling, whilst sounding different to other hard metal sounds, with their layered dark and light rock.


'We Aren't' roars into action, bursting into fast riffage which is equally beautiful and soft a…
