Go Loud Agency Welcomes Swedish Rockers The Hawkins






While in Latvia for a short yet successful mini-tour, the Swedish fourpiece took the opportunity to visit the Go Loud Agency headquarters and ink the deal. The band’s upcoming year is looking brighter than ever, with plenty of shows and projects in the pipeline.

The Hawkins are an energetic, highly-entertaining rock n’ roll piece. Their music is a perfect combination of blues-based rock groove (think Deep Purple) with the bullshit-free attitude of punk rock that most likely would have made Lemmy shed a little tear of joy. Starting in March 2013, the band’s achievements quickly started piling up – including a tour of Russia, performing at world-famous festivals such Sweden Rock Festival, Peace & Love and Metallsvenskan, as well as signing a record deal with Swedish-based label GAIN/Sony Music.

The band has recently released their debut album, Ain’t Rock n Roll expected to be playing in and around Europe throughout 2018, starting with their upcoming tour with Corroded, as seen below.

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…
