Hardcore Quintet HYPOPHORA Release New Single ‘Headlines’






South West post-hardcore quartet HYPOPHORA are pleased to reveal their brand new single ‘Headlines’ that is released this week via Easy Action/Zen Ten Records. Creating hard-hitting, catchy and anthemic material, HYPOPHORA bring intricate guitar music back to the mainstream. ‘Headlines’ is a much darker sound, both musically and lyrically, than the band’s previous material, featuring one of the jazziest yet chilled out middle eights they’ve ever written.

You can watch the music video for the single ‘Headlines’ below:

In the past twelve months the band have supported the likes of He Is Legend, Kurt Travis (ex Dance Gavin Dance and Allusondrugs at various locations in the UK. In the summer they played slots at UK Tech Metal Fest and Boardmasters Festival and this winter they hit the road again on a headline run to promote their new material.

“‘Headlines’ is about the realisation that a friend might only be your friend for convenience and circumstance rather than true connection or respect. Upon learning that fact, the song touches on how you’d be forced to then question your entire friendship history, whether or not it was entirely real at all and whether to continue putting effort into keeping it going.” explains the band, when talking about the story behind the new single.

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…

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…
