Fragile Things – Broken Sun

fragilethingsfeat

How many times have we all heard the phrase “the first one is the best” when referencing a series of albums, films, or books? I’ve heard it more than enough in my time. My thoughts are that this frequent occurrence is likely due to an emotional attachment to the original formula and subsequent diversion from […]

Liberty Lies – Are You Listening?

libertyliesfeat

I always thought I was the only person who paid attention to song lyrics, but Liberty Lies’ new single, “Are You Listening?” has proved I’m not. A hard rock band from the West Midlands, this group of five originally formed in June 2008, consisting of lead vocalist Shaun Richards, guitarists Josh Pritchett and Liam Billings, […]

Japam – How’s My EP?

Japam

Have you ever come across a band so odd that it left you dumbfounded? I could think of a few: Primus, Faith No More, Tool, and Japam. Who’s Japam? Well, let me explain.

Kirra – Run Away

Kirra Run Away

According to Kirra guitarist Daxton Page, the band “wanted to make a statement about overproduction in the rock world today,” with the debut album Run Away. After listening to the album, I can say without a doubt that this music doesn’t sound like it came from a present-day rock band, but Kirra has captured a […]

Circle of Reason – Questions

Circle of Reason

Seeing the new video for Circle of Reason’s Questions may leave you with your own set of inquiries. The recently released single from the upcoming album Faith or Theory (due out May 27th) is accompanied with a video that is vague both visually and in the sense of its meaning. The song starts abruptly, seemingly […]

Tripod

Hard rock/stoner metal/grunge rock all kind of bleed together. While these genres are slightly different, they’re also kind of similar. Norway’s Tripod takes this opportunity to show a lot of range with these, even branching into a softer side. Their upcoming album “Devil Feeder” will showcase this expertise in blending genres.

Undermine – Waiting

undermine

Australian band Undermine released their self-titled debut a few years ago, but not they’re ready to release another song as a single. “Waiting” is the song that you will forever associate with this band. It’s the one that really defines the band. Though they do have some differing songs, “Waiting” is the one that makes […]

Radio Dial – Word Painter

RadioDial

Sometimes you just need a power ballad to get through something. If you’re searching for some new Stone Temple Pilots-esque rock, then look no further.  You need loud, angry, aggressive and in your face music, and that is what we get in Radio Dial’s album Word Painter.

Lotus Effect – “Totality”

LotusEffect

Lotus Effect is a band described as “post-alternative progressive rock,” which is just a fancy way to say they play hard rock you should just listen to already. The EP Rabbits & Royalty was well-received, leaving fans (and blogs… like this one) waiting and begging for the full length.

The Liberty Underground – Three Feet From Gold

3FeetLU

There’s a ridiculous amount of pop-something in rock music. We’ve got pop-punk, pop-rock, garage rock and pop-folk-fusion-or-whatever-they-come-up-with-next. Not that I have anything against pop-everything, but that is 100% not The Liberty Underground. The Liberty Underground is pure rock and roll, so grab their album Three Feet From Gold to get your all rock fix.
