Exciting Essex metal band Beyond Extinction are on a mission to become “one of the big UK metal bands” with their fusion of metalcore, deathcore and death metal elements.
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.
Brand new Irish metal duo Cell Games take us back 20 years or so in time with a sound they hope provides a revival of nu-metal in a bid to “rival the best turn-of-the-century bands.”
As the daughter of Zeus, Artemis was one of the most venerated Ancient Greek deities who signified, among many things, love, strength and the protection of girls and women. And we think you’re going to love the strong, adrenaline pumping vibes of Southampton’s “ballsy bubblegum punk rockers” Artemis.
Step into the future of metal with the cyberpunk, electronica metal sound of Bristol-based Drip Fed Empire. The quartet blends hardcore metal and post-hardcore with industrial, EDM, drum & bass elements to form a genre-bending, energy-fuelled dystopian sound.
Allow your musical senses to soar with the bouncy, thrilling sound of Bristol band Kite Thief. The band describe their brand of alternative rock meets prog metal Gutter Candy Metal – “sweet and full of grit, like dropping your favourite candy in the gutter and still wanting to put it in your mouth.”
Blending the elements of hardcore and deathcore is only going to result in a pretty damn heavy concoction, and that’s exactly the case with Swindon band TYRANTS who offer up what they describe as “stupidly heavy slams.”
If a band name could aptly summarise the current events in the world then that would surely be Sadness & Complete Disappointment.
There seems to be a strange disdain from some parts for bands formed of just two members. That’s pretty hard to understand when it comes to a duo like Broozer, who refuse to conform to one genre and are more than happy to mix things up from song to song.
Our first New Band of the Week of 2021 may well be the first to have fused hard rock, metal and reggae. Spar Marta have honed a unique sound that jumps between full-on heavy riffing and more laid-back delicious vocals, with a sprinkling of funk for good measure.
Describing themselves as “not for the faint-hearted,” Swindon’s Heriot offer up a violent assault on your earholes with a crushing hardcore sound.
Leeds trio Kath & The Kicks have honed an intriguing sound that packs the power of alternative and grunge. Led by delicious, engaging vocals and supported by heavy riffs, there’s also a more melodic edge to the band that’s sure to have you hooked.
Nothing quite shakes off the Monday morning blues than a fix of energetic, frenetic, fast-paced hardcore punk. So expect fun, energetic, enthusiastic punk laced with metal influences from the exciting sound of Northwich’s Kicked In The Teeth.
