Avalanche - Inora



















Avalanche are a four piece Post Hardcore act from the South East of England. They released their 4 track EP on the 6th October, and released it true style, launching it at a gig in Crawley at Bar Med supporting the band, Never Means Maybe who along with Fei Comodo are currently supporting Exit Ten!

The title of EP, "Inora" is named after the Goddess of Mountain Snow, which the artwork depicts. You could say its a good EP for the cold winter! Check it out now and be "snowed" under by "Avalanche", and when your barricaded in your homes by the snow (which I'm sure will soon by on its way!) take this opportunity to listen to these 4 awesome tracks!

"Problems With Talking" has quite a mainstream feel to it, so I'm sure it will be very popular! The song has great lyrics, like the other 3 tracks, and doesn't stray from this through out. The song seamlessly flows and is very coherent, something which can be hard to achieve, so bravo to them! All of this plus nice guitar tones and solo parts/riffs makes this one song that people should be "talking" about!

"The End Of The World" is the heaviest track on the EP. It's fast, melodic, with great dark lyrics. Who knew a song about the end of the world could be so good! The last track, "Enter The Dragon" could be a case of saving the best to last with its great riffs, good range of vocals, nice fast turns transitions, making it a dynamic. Overall a well rounded track that delivers on most fronts! This band will hit you hard! Like you have been crushed by a ton of snow!

Band-Maid MCM Comic Con Live Review/Feature - Fringe Festival 29/5/16

J-Rockers Band-Maid make first European performance at huge MCM Comic Con

Band-Maid, one of Japan’s up-and-coming all-girl rock acts, made their live debut to UK/Europe at MCM London Comic Con, which took place from 27-29th May 2016 at ExCel London, hosting the UK's biggest Modern Pop Culture Event.


The Tokyo quintet who formed in 2013, consisting of Miku (guitar/vocals), Saiki (vocals), Kanami (guitar), Akane (drums) and bassist Misa – have been building quite a reputation and fan-base all over with their blend of cute yet deadly rock music and stand out imagery (appropriately dressing as maids) whilst they unleash and deliver their seriously skilled and striking sounds. The concept of the maid outfit aesthetic stems from founder Miku’s experiences in the maid cafes of Akihabara – the Tokyo district known for otaku (‘geek’) culture and passion for rock music.


Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…
