SPINEFARM RECORDS ACTS REPRESENT AT DOWNLOAD 2015!‏



STRONG PRESENCE FOR SPINEFARM ASTISTS AT UK’S PREMIER ROCK ‘N’ METAL EVENT…



All you rockers, ready to get down ‘n’ dirty at Donington with the Download Dog can lay witness to a plethora of Spinefarm bands on a variety of stages throughout the weekend (June 12-14); start out on the Friday with our lads in DECADE, who guarantee to get you jumpin’ for joy (just don’t expect them to replace the beer that’s sure to be all over your T-shirt/ shorts/ head).

Take a quick hop-step-lunge over to the third stage and get low for the mighty KROKODIL. A too-cool-for-school, arm cross and head nod is not going to cut it here; that growl from frontman Simon Wright will penetrate your soul and resonate in the pit of your stomach! EMBRACE THOSE RIFFS AND ROCK THE FUCK OUT.

Now that you’re suitably sticky, why not head over to THE CADILLAC THREE? If you follow in the band’s footsteps, you’ll soon be a few whiskeys in, “getting your buzz on!” But hey, “they’re southern and it ain’t their fault”…

What you do with Friday from then on is nothing to do with us! But make sure you get some shut eye as Saturday marks your opportunity to see the other-worldly magnificence that is PURSON…

A new signing for Spinefarm Records and a bloody exciting one, singer, guitarist, songwriter Rosalie Cunningham fronts this UK outfit whose music touches on a variety of realms, including folk, prog, psychedelic, gothic & classic rock. GROOVY!

But there’s no time for tired limbs on Sunday as that’s when those dashing Scandinavian siblings, VON HERTZEN BROTHERS, will be bringing their own brand of stadium rock to the stage. This will be their first ever Download appearance and it’s one certain to turn a few heads. If you’re a fan of Muse, Soundgarden, Foo Fighters or even Queen, VON HERTZEN BROTHERS have the credentials to become your new favourite band.

Now, I’ve heard rumours that you like your rock HARD? Well, I’ve got a treat for you: G.O.D.S.M.A.C.K. Oh yeah!!! Boston monsters of rock GODSMACK have been a much-missed commodity in the UK, having not played here in six years, so rev yourself up at that barrier, my friend, cos that fist has some air-pumping to do!

Talking of fists, grab all of your pals because Alaskan metallers 36 CRAZYFISTS are playing main stage, motherfuuuuckers! And, oh my, do they deserve it! Following the release of current album, ‘Time and Trauma’ – which won the guys top-notch reviews across the board and saw them playing every town on this little island of ours – they are back by popular demand. Come join Brock & Co. as they drag us all in for a bloody great bear-hug then spit us all out, wind-milling all over the place. THIS SHIT’S FOR REAAAAL!

AND SLEEP.

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…
