IN FLAMES Drop Surprise Covers EP & Kick Off EU Tour!






IN FLAMES Release Surprise Covers EP Featuring 'Wicked Game' & Start EU Tour!


Gothenburg-based metal heavyweights IN FLAMES surprise fans with a four-track covers EP Down, Wicked & No Good out now worldwide ahead of their SOLD OUT hometown show at the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden on 17th November. Download or stream the EP here: http://nblast.de/IFDownWickedNoGood

To debut their cover of DEPECHE MODE’s 1997 hit single 'It’s No Good', IN FLAMES are took over DEPECHE MODE’s Facebook page on 17th November, releasing exclusive content and a new video for the song - watch it here: https://youtu.be/xznKs14Svlo

The panoptic covers collection also includes IN FLAMES' versions of ALICE IN CHAINS’ 'Down In A Hole,' CHRIS ISAAK’s 'Wicked Game,' and a live bonus version of NINE INCH NAILS 'Hurt'. It sees the Swedish quintet expanding beyond metal to incorporate the group’s varied musical taste and expansive sonic range.

“We’ve been fans of DEPECHE MODE since we were as young as 10. Getting to do our rendition of ‘It’s No Good’ showed us a different side of the song – it brought new meanings to us. We relate to the lyrics and power of the song so heavily that it almost feels as if we could have written it ourselves. They’re a band that we’ve always looked up to. Growing up, you either listened to Pop, Synths or Rock and even though we are a metal band, DEPECHE MODE inspired a lot of the electronic elements we use in our music today.”

Earlier this week, IN FLAMES kicked off a 25 date co-Headline arena tour with American heavyweights, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and special guests OF MICE & MEN in Helsinki. Watch an exclusive clip from the show here: https://youtu.be/WeWxxfGPrJ4

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…
