WEESP Have Released New Live Song Taken From Upcoming New Album 'Black Sails'!



Alternative electronic rockers WEESP from Minsk, Belarus who formed in 2008 have been delivering their own unique sound, combining elements of electronic, alternative and metal to create their edgy spacey rock. They have since received numerous publications worldwide and have played many gigs, including festivals in Belarus, Russia and Poland.

In 2015 they released their full-length debut album,'The Void' (you can read my review here: http://www.madaboutrock.co.uk/2015/08/weesp-void-review-minsk-rockers-hit.html) which was well received and showcased their diverse and stand out sound. It also featured guest vocals from Cory Brandan of Norma Jean on their single 'Solar Empires'.

Now the band have announced they are working on their second full-length follow-up and are about to start recording this at the Polish studio Hertz (Behemoth, Vader, Decapitated). On the 29th May 2017, they stated that their drummer was at the studio and will have all the recordings for them done in a week. The working title of the new album is 'Black Sails' and it will feature nine new offerings. The producer of the album is well known  
Hiili Hiilesma, who has worked with many styles of music but mostly focused on Metal. He has collaborated with many established metal bands, such as HIM, Apocalyptica, The 69 Eyes, Sentenced and Lordi. 

In light of this exciting news, they have dropped a teaser of what to expect from the new upcoming album with a live performance video of a new, not yet titled song!

Check out the new atmospheric and soaring new song below:






'Black Sails' is going to be an album to look out for in 2017!

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…
