KING LEVIATHAN ANNOUNCE NEW E.P and RELEASE SHOW


Having only spent just over a year together as a band, Brighton’s KING LEVIATHAN are quickly rising through the ranks of the UK's underground scene with a reputation for blistering tight-as-nails performances that belies the band members ages of just 18 to 23. Last year saw them showcase their brand of 'cultist thrash' across the UK including an appearance at Mammothfest and a main support slot to thrash legends ‘DARKEST HOUR’.

King Leviathan's new E.P 'THE SHRINE' will be released on May 31st.
Track Listing:
WORMWOOD
BORN OF THE BLACKEST HEARTS
SKIN FROM BONE
MADNESS MADE DIVINE
SHRINE

The follow-up to their self-titled 2014 debut, this new 5 track offering 'THE SHRINE' is a marked step forward for the four piece and was recorded over a week long period at Brighton Electric with Producer Paul 'Win' Winstanley at the helm.

"We knew we wanted the next E.P to be bigger and better in all aspects - and Win's work with 'Sea Bastard', 'Whitemare' and early 'Black Peaks' stuff really impressed us! So we hit the studio, and before we knew it we were smashing beer kegs with hammers, scoring violin stabs and laying down choir vocals... Nuts!"

KING LEVIATHAN will be giving a few of these new songs an airing throughout May including dates with Vulgate, the Metal To The Masses Brighton final and finally playing the whole E.P in full when supporting Australian thrash masters 'ELM STREET' at The Prince Albert Brighton, before heading out across the UK in June with 'ABHORRENT DECIMATION.

"We can't wait to get these new tunes out there, we think it's easily the best stuff we've written to date and we're eager to see if the crowds enjoy hearing it as much as we do playing it!"

Catch them live at the following shows in May:

Bar 42, Worthing - *Headline*. Sat 2nd
Finns, Weymouth - *w/ The Rocket Dolls*. Fri 15th
Head Of Steam, Newcastle - *w/ Vulgate*. Tues 19th

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…

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…
