REVIEW: Bare Teeth - First The Town, Then The World







French Punk Rockers Bare Teeth, are back with a brand new belting EP 'First the Town, Then the World'.

The EP kicks off with the title track 'First The Town, Then The World' which hits hard from the start with fast melodic instruments and vocals. They quickly demonstrate their talent and craftsmanship in this brilliant and textured punk offering. This leaves you excited to hear the rest of the EP...

'Behind The Wall' doesn't disappoint either, as it makes an even bigger impact with its great rhythms and infectious melodies, along with a hard-hitting guitar solo.

Latest single 'Parted Ways' keeps the momentum running high, especially being the fastest and most pounding track so far and again is groove ridden throughout. 'Always Rain' features some of the best and resonant tuneful guitar work and keeps things consistently powerful, especially with the use of fierce vocals in parts.

'Down' appropriately slows things down a tad for the intro at least, leaving you to bask in their glorious guitar work before firing up again. Whilst 'Tomorrow Starts Today' sees a heavier more hardcore influence shine through and helps add more variety. This is a perfect hard punk anthem for the pits.

'These Towns Need Guns' featuring Steve Rawles goes full hardcore with aggressive vocals mixed with clean ones for effect, and it works wonderfully. It is a good transition which still fits in with their style. A great surprise.

The band decided to show their softer calmer side by closing the EP with an acoustic version of earlier song 'Behind The Wall' which is a nice touch and this more stripped back number highlights the strong vocal harmonies and melodic guitar work more so.

This is not your standard punk band, this is dynamic, depthful and complex, with elements of thrash, pop, hardcore and punk combined, with all songs displaying their brilliant musicianship throughout. It is a delight to listen to and will surprise and impress the masses. They are setting out to take on 'the world' and this new EP is a great contribution to this.





The EP is now available on Digipack CDs, 12" vinyl and in all digital formats.

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…
