SPINEFARM DROPS THE NEEDLE FOR RECORD STORE DAY 2015..

Releases from Turbowolf, Atreyu, Venom & SikTh confirmed for April 18th release…



SPINEFARM RECORDS will be supporting Record Store Day 2015 with a number of releases highlighting different aspects of the rock ‘n’ metal genre…

Taking said genre into brave new worlds are UK riff-gurus Turbowolf, who have just released their new / second studio album, ‘Two Hands’, via Spinefarm Records / Search & Destroy. Having recently toured with both Royal Blood & Death From Above 1979, advocates of the Turbowolf cause, the Bristol quartet are now very much on an upward trajectory, with Radio 1 playing the recent singles (‘Rabbits Foot’ & ‘Nine Lives’), and a headline UK tour currently underway…




On the other side of the Atlantic, Atreyu are a band who have already left a serious mark… One of the key architects of the '00s American metal resurgence, selling over a million albums in a 10 year period, the Orange County outfit simmered on the back-burner after 2009… but now they’re back in business with a brand new studio album, set for release via Spinefarm Records / Search & Destroy in late summer / early autumn 2015, backed by a comprehensive touring plan.



Just as Atreyu were breaking big in the US, so UK sextet SikTh were turning heads with their debut album, ‘The Trees Are Dead & Dried Out Wait For Something Wild’; released in 2003, the record showcased a style combining elements of extreme metal, tech metal, prog & spoken word with plate-juggling musicianship & extended atmospheric passages to create a style that has cast a huge shadow over the past ten years of rock.


‘The Trees Are Dead…’ now achieves double vinyl status for the very first time, supported by selected international shows featuring the reformed original line-up.


Meanwhile, nestling under the ‘none more legendary’ banner, there’s Newcastle ne’er-do-wells Venom – a band who not only invented a new category of extreme music (‘Black Metal’), but who continue to be a significant international force in darker circles, playing shows around the world and generally spreading the message for no-compromise heavy metal of maleficent intent.



Released in January of this year, new Venom album, ‘From The Very Depths’, is right up there with the best of their work, and April 18th sees it being released on (double) vinyl for the first time.

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…
