Introducing: The Hyena Kill

Manchester band The Hyena Kill are venturing on a journey into unfamiliar territory, bringing listeners into their world of turmoil with an album that seeks to reconcile personal trauma and pain.

Introducing: Midgar

Our prolonged Christmas break is over and, like our first featured artist of 2021, we are back with a bang. Midgar is an unusual band for us, given that they started out more than a decade ago but, after a long hiatus, they’re returning with a sound that’s hard-hitting and intense yet melodic and intricate.

Introducing: Milk White Throat

Fusing progressive rock elements coming from a death metal background is always going to conjure up something pretty exciting, and that’s exactly what we get from Brighton band Milk White Throat. The band offer up thrilling riffs, cheeky guitar solos and pounding rhythms in a heavy, intense and encapsulating sound.

Introducing: Flammable Animal

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.

Introducing: Hemmera

Until now, we’ve only ever covered one band from Brazil and no metal bands from the country. However, Ponta Grossa newcomers Hemmera have well and truly put the nation’s scene on our map with their intoxicating fusion of metal, electronica, trance and orchestral elements, plus the contrast of screamed vocals and melodic choruses.
