REVIEW: The Rocket Dolls - 'DeaDHead'





Heavy rock trio The Rocket Dolls unleash their sophomore album 'DeaDHead' on the 6th April and it will further assert their status as ones to watch…

New single 'None Of This Is Right’ kicks off the album and makes for a dramatic gripping start. Nikki Smash’s vocals are great and varied. This is a solid well-rounded rock track that is strong with catchy hooks throughout…everything is ‘right’ about this.

The dark title track 'DeaDHead' has a hard grunge vibe, bouncy heavy riffs and memorable guitar work. This a standout track which serves perfectly as the representation of the band’s sound.

This release is well balanced, ranging from stomping grunge rock anthems to more chilled and mainstream rock moments seen in tracks such as ‘She Said’ which is stripped back but still with a grunge rock influence present and ‘The Last Thing On My Mind’ which flows wonderfully on from this, with a massive rock ballad feel and again demonstrates their softer more accessible sound catering for the masses.

The high powered ‘The Desperate’ gets things moving again and is the fiercest and heaviest offering on the album and is a welcomed addition to the mix.

Final and crushing song ‘Trigger’ is unpredictable and powerful going out with a bang. It again demonstrates until the very end that the band can pull off a range of sounds and are not lacking in terms of creativity and depth.

They certainly continue to prove that they are a band to keep an eye on. This sophomore release is rife with strong grunge influences but they still manage to put their own twist on it, incorporating a bit of everything from heavy rock, punk and modern mainstream rock elements, all of which is injected with driving riffs and catchy melodies, along with the right amount of angst and emotions, leaving something for everyone.




The Rocket Dolls new album 'DeaDHead' is out 6th April 2018 and available to pre-order now.

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…
