Exciting Birmingham band The SchytëHawkës take the heaviness of hardcore and thrash and supplement them with hip-hop vocals.
Our New Band of the Week is strictly for exciting new British bands only. We interview new bands from across the rock and metal spectrum, take a listen to their music and find out what makes them tick. Check out our interviews with emerging UK rock and metal talent below.
Fang City have honed an energetic hard rock sound fuelled by dynamic riffs and intriguing lyrics – which they describe to us as “Bitchin’.”
Fareham band Web were introduced to us as “Portsmouth’s latest and most aggressive post-punk band,” which had us all ears. The quartet have honed an intriguing sound that fuses a little bit of everything from experimental post-punk to grunge and heavy noise rock as they endeavour to work on “more interesting song structures.”
Oxfordshire newcomers Severed Tongues have honed a delicious modern metal sound that’s somehow exceedingly dark and dramatic, yet also positive and catchy.

Armed with booming riffs and delicious guitar licks, unrelentingly heavy drums and engaging vocals, Polybius are a great example of the quality of the underground music scene in Liverpool.
There’s not many things that we love more than some good, fast-paced hardcore punk and that’s what we get in spades from London’s COPE, who’ve honed a sound that they aptly summarise as “heavy fucking punk.”
Merging grunge with 2000s punk is always going to be a winner in our eyes, but Essex band Paper Fight have honed a particularly exciting, energetic sound that will have skaterpunks worldwide rejoicing.
