Hardcore Quintet HYPOPHORA Release New Single ‘Headlines’






South West post-hardcore quartet HYPOPHORA are pleased to reveal their brand new single ‘Headlines’ that is released this week via Easy Action/Zen Ten Records. Creating hard-hitting, catchy and anthemic material, HYPOPHORA bring intricate guitar music back to the mainstream. ‘Headlines’ is a much darker sound, both musically and lyrically, than the band’s previous material, featuring one of the jazziest yet chilled out middle eights they’ve ever written.

You can watch the music video for the single ‘Headlines’ below:

In the past twelve months the band have supported the likes of He Is Legend, Kurt Travis (ex Dance Gavin Dance and Allusondrugs at various locations in the UK. In the summer they played slots at UK Tech Metal Fest and Boardmasters Festival and this winter they hit the road again on a headline run to promote their new material.

“‘Headlines’ is about the realisation that a friend might only be your friend for convenience and circumstance rather than true connection or respect. Upon learning that fact, the song touches on how you’d be forced to then question your entire friendship history, whether or not it was entirely real at all and whether to continue putting effort into keeping it going.” explains the band, when talking about the story behind the new single.

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…

REVIEW: Vrona - Impermanence (Prog Metal)

Prog metallers, Vrona released their debut EP 'A Lapse In Time' last year which received positive press and even led to them being compared to the likes of heavyweights Karnivool, TesseracT and Tool, minus the vocals, as in 2016 they were an instrumental act. Now in 2017, they are back, not only with a new two-track release titled 'Impermanence' but they have also unveiled and added an extra dimension to their already massive sound with the introduction of a vocalist Jamie Ball.

The main title track 'Impermanence' is ambient and textured. The vocals are pleasant, captivating and varied which immediately gives them a different feel and layer, proving that adding vocalist Jamie was a wise move. It features soaring and powerful moments throughout. The fact that they now have vocals doesn't overpower the well crafted and intelligible instruments either but only acts as the perfect unison, with both complimenting each other wonderfully. They are all impressive mu…
