Seek Nothing - Self Titled EP Review - HONEST HARDCORE WITH A DIFFERENCE!

Seek Nothing cover art


DEBUT EP FROM NEWCOMERS IS HONEST HARDCORE WITH A DIFFERENCE!



Seek Nothing are a Berlin/UK act, that describe themselves, 'as not so bad hardcore'. They unleashed their first EP on the 21st March 2016, and now they are looking to break out, and get their music heard further afield to scout for new fans on more home turf, as they are heading to the UK this June!

Opening song, Drunken X Wolf starts on a light hearted comical note, before it bursts into full fast chugg mode, with extremely pissed mad vocals, and chunky down tempo riffs throughout. The nice bass breakdown towards the end offers a breather, before it all kicks off again, in this blistering likeable bruiser! 

The interesting titled, Actually, It's About Ethics In The Hardcore Scene, see's them bare all and snarl their teeth at the generalisations of the genre. This is thought provoking, fast and fuming, making for a good one to let some steam off too! 

Caught In The Slipstream has a heavy well structured groove and rhythm, top that with bleak honest lyrics, and your left with a rather epic sound. The band have mastered the art of dark bad-ass groove, rather than chaotic over the top instrumentation that tends to dominate in hardcore genres, giving them a hard punk and doom feel at times also.

To close we have, Recoil which opens on sinister prologue to set the scene, before urgent manic instruments and fierce vocals come in. Again the lyrics are to the point and highlight the mundane problems of today of disengagement. This is a powerful and belligerent one to end on, that perfectly demonstrates what the band are about, in terms of musical style and lyrical themes.

Seek Nothing effortlessly churn out blunt in your face, unconventional hardcore music that is bold and compelling...I think they are on to something, even if they aren't looking for it! 




To promote their self titled EP they are embarking on a homecoming UK Tour:

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…
