MORDRED officially release new single The Baroness Feb 3rd, Bloodstock Festival slot now confirmed!‏





Following on from their triumphant and long awaited return to these shores, one of the late great John Peel's favourites MORDRED officially release their first new single for over 20 years, THE BARONESS on February 3rd.





As fierce and funky, brash and brilliant as ever, this is a metaliciously groovy taste of what's to come this summer from this innovative band of San Franciscan musicians when they release their long awaited new EP, with an album pending for later in the year.

MORDRED will be supporting this new release with a UK and European tour, including a slot on Sunday on the Sophie Stage at BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR festival which we're all incredibly stoked about!

This band blazed a rip-roaring trail across both sides of the big pond back in '89 with their superb debut 'Fools Game', it's taken a couple of decades to get them back in full gear again but with a new EP pending, it's a very exciting time for fans, both new and old alike, of this unique bunch of San Fran reprobates!

"..this is a massive performance...highlights, though, are the raptastic Esse Quam Videri and a stunning cover of Thin Lizzy's Johnny The Fox Meets Jimmy The Weed. But the whole occasion is simply a joy. The atmosphere, the musicianship, the song choice... it all works. And Mordred's combination of metal, funk and hip-hop sounds convincingly contemporary"
Malcolm Dome, Metal Hammer

"Mordred's return to Belfast after two decades is nothing less than triumphant....No band has ever really managed to better what Mordred did, and with the prospect of a new release this could hopefully be the beginning of a renaissance for the band. All in all, a faultless gig"
MetalIreland.com

"Back in '91 I heralded Mordred's legendary Marquee show as the greatest night of my life, but....I can safely say I was wrong because some 23 years later I'm finding myself saying it again. Without a shadow of a doubt, Mordred will always be the coolest band to grace stage, vinyl, cassette, disc and ears." Metal Forces.

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…
