Fahran Release 'State Of Mind' Video




If you have been in and around the UK recently, you may have heard of Nottingham based Hard Rock band, Fahran.

Having two successful albums behind them and having played prestigious UK festivals such as Bloodstock, Download Festival, Hard Rock Hell and many more, Fahran have also just announced they will be adding Amplified festival 2018 to their extensive festival repertoire.

Now, the midlands based Hard Rockers are back with their new single ‘State Of Mind’. Check out the video below!




State of Mind addresses the issue of mental health and has been created from a two point perspective. It delivers an interesting narrative and visually fast paced video combining performance with storyline. Matt Blacks unmistakable gravely vocals power through and complement some heavy, catchy riffs and crushing grooves. This track ticks every box for what you’d want from a great rock track, the guitar solo is the icing on the cake!

The track boasts heavy riffs, huge choruses and soaring vocals and they do not disappoint!

Fahran consists of Matt Black (Vocals), Jake Graham (Guitar), Josh Fahran (Drums), Josh Ballantyne (Bass) and Chris Byrne (Guitar).

“The brand new single State of Mind is from the forthcoming album VAPOURS that will land Summer 2018. As a band, we have definitely stepped it up and developed a heavier sound to our music. State of Mind is like a bridge between our previous album Chasing Hours and what we are going to release in our next album. The song is told from two perspectives. The first is from the place of someone who's depressed, low, and anxious. Then it switches to the outside perspective of wanting to help that person because you understand what they've been through from your own experience.”– Josh Fahran

This is a subject that is very prevalent in the music industry at the moment and we think it’s great to see more and more bands addressing the subject of mental health through their own experiences. This is a very brave thing to do as it is not an easy feat to admit that you have suffered with mental health issues and we commend Fahran for sharing their personal experiences through their music.

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…
