New Band of the Week: RUINA

RUINA’s diverse sound is built on an arsenal of riffs and big breakdowns and draws on a wide range of influences, leading them to describe it to us as “random, huge and genre-fluid.”

Introducing: VENUES

Southern Germany’s modern metal meets post-hardcore outfit VENUES have honed an exciting sound that fuses lively riffs and screamed vocals with delicious melodies, which they summarise as “diverse, unique and self-contained.”

Introducing: The Camel City Blackouts

Would you believe we’ve only covered two American bands in 2021 and only three since mid-November? Well, we’re putting that right with North Carolina duo The Camel City Blackouts, who’ve honed a traditional, energetic punk rock sound that they describe as “introspective, fun and catchy.”

New Band of the Week: Cannula

Exciting Lancashire band Cannula offer up a new sound that they hope listeners won’t be used to hearing from British metalcore. They fuse elements of hardcore and deathcore with huge riffs and breakdowns, intense vocals and intriguing lyrics in a heavy, emotive sound they summarise as “new-wave metalcore.”
