KLOGR have just released their third studio album 'Keystone' (mixed by Grammy winning producer David Bottrill - Stone Sour, Muse, Rush, Tool and more) on 6th October via Zeta Factory (distributed in the UK/Europe by PHD).

The artwork is a piece of a painting by renowned Italian artist, Andrea Saltini.

Klogr frontman Rusty comments: “A while ago, I saw a paint of Andrea Saltini and I was really impressed by it. When 'Keystone' came to life with its music, I immediately remembered that painting and thought it would be perfect for our cover. Luckily it was still available and we were able to use it for our design.”


'Keystone' tracklist:

1. Sleeping Through The Seasons
2. Prison Of Light
3. Technocracy
4. The Echoes Of Sin
5. Pride Before The Fall
6. Something's In The Air
7. Drag You Back
8. Sirens' Song
9. Dark Tides
10. Silent Witness
11. Enigmatic Smile
12. The Wall Of Illusion

“'Keystone' is a central point of a system, a doctrine, a school of thought, a series of events”, says Klogr mastermind Rusty, “the new album is the perfect representation of our work, what we believe in and what we want to express with our music.”

Rusty also says, "Man thinks that he is the cornerstone of the universe, he thinks everything revolves around his being, he believes he can dominate the world through intellect, he proclaims himself the superior species, master of all other living beings without taking into account the fact that the planet can go on without him...but he can't survive without the planet."



Klogr's new album was recorded at Zeta Factory Studio and mixed at Mainstation Studio in Toronto, Canada, by Grammy award winner David Bottrill (Peter Gabriel, Muse, Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Dream Theater, Stone Sour, Rush).

“We decided to work with a producer like David to reach a turning point in our discography”, comments Rusty, “David brought something that was missing in the band, an outside view focused on music and not on what is “trendy”. His incredible musical sensitivity and his professional experience led us to challenge ourselves and to experiment new solutions that gave the album a unique power and personality.

We are really proud and satisfied of the result, this is our best work ever. We hope you will enjoy it!”

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…
