Nashville newcomers Lonelyouth offer up an exciting, diverse sound that sits somewhere between nu-metal, metalcore and melodic rock. They’ve honed a sound that offers plenty of aggression and its fair share of groove, with booming guitar riffs fused with powerful vocals engaging melodies.
Prepare to get your groove on with the superbly engaging sound of The Haunted North, who fuse raw, powerful vocals with big riffing and vicious driving rhythms.
We’ve featured a couple of ‘Internet bands’ in the past, but Beyond The Badlands is definitely one of the most interesting. The band was founded in January by guitarist and songwriter Cuda Smith, who’s currently stationed in Germany and spends six months of the year deployed with the military which leaves him another six months to hone his brand of southern rock.
One thing you can rely on the north of England for is producing brilliant new Indie bands and it’s been too long since we featured one. However, the wait has been more than worth it with the discovery of loosely Cheshire-based band The Zangwills, who offer up engaging singalong vocals alongside lively indie instrumental goodness.
A GigRadar first for you today as we bring you our very first Welsh thrash band in Madicide, who first unleashed their thrash metal on the unsuspecting villagers of Glynneath some ten years ago.
Brighton band Demure are using a foundation of classic rock and building a wide range of musical influences on top of it, from funk and blues to psychedelia, reggae and even hip-hop. The result is an intoxicating fusion of delicious riffs, catchy vocals, funky instrumentals and plenty of musical diversity.
Emerging from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Calgary band Greybeard offer up a delicious fusion of metal influences, from black metal and death metal to atmospheric and progressive elements.
London-based Meantime is formed of a Slovakian and a South African, neither of which are your traditional punk rock powerhouses. The duo of Stefan Klein and Adam Stanley have defied backgrounds that, in their words, deprived them of access to first-world media to craft an intriguing sound that they describe to us as “a little bit prog, a bit melodic grunge and a lot heavy.”
My formative years of rock and metal were largely shaped by bands that emerged from the Welsh valleys in the early 2000s. Exciting quartet Raiders are a band that’s well and truly taking on the mantle some 20 years later, having also been a part of that original Welsh scene.
Subscribe to our new music playlist, which we started back in June. Every week, we add a batch of new songs from new bands all over the world, some of which we’ve previously covered on the website but others that are even brand new to us.
How would you feel about revisiting songs or even things you thought or ranted about 21 years ago? Personally, I think it’s best not to even contemplate visit 15-year-old me’s thoughts. However, that’s exactly what brilliantly named Los Angeles rock band Flammable Animal (try saying that three times) are doing with their recently released debut EP that transports us back to our formative music days of the 1990s.
