Introducing: Crimson Star

Sit back if you will and envisage Birmingham trio Crimson Star‘s description of their hard-hitting rock sound as “the kind of music you need when driving a beautiful car, extremely fast across the Californian desert.” It’s loud and riff-heavy, but it’ll also have you screaming your lungs out to their huge singalong choruses. The band’s…

New Band of the Week: InVisions

Coming out of York we’ve discovered a very exciting new band who’ve crafted an aggressive brand of heavy metal packed with attitude but also plenty of melody. InVisions started back in January 2016 when Ben Ville (vocals) approached Lucas Gabb (guitars) about starting a new project after the demise of their previous bands, then recruited…

Introducing: Calling Apollo

There was a time not too long ago when there were so many great Welsh rock bands around it was difficult to keep track of them all. The likes of Funeral For A Friend, Bullet For My Valentine and Lostprophets (I’ll say that one quietly) shaped my love for rock music, but Cardiff rockers Calling…

Introducing: Breakdown Bros

It’s not very often you discover a new band that not only sound fantastic, but are so new that they’ve never played a live show. And it’s not very often you hear an awesome metalcore song about Pokémon Go. However, German metal duo Breakdown Bros are not your regular metalcore band. The German duo has never…
