A brilliant new release, a melodically addictive and energizing soundscape and performance, paying tribute to Skunk Anansie as much as classic driving anthems and even alternative blues rock and roll. The Merrin sound is something of its own right now.
Nobody creates in the way that Seth Angerer does, and certainly not to this degree of professionalism. His creative flair runs wild yet still the stunning musicianship and sound design works hard to impress and captivate right the way through.
Not My World makes for a rather stunning introduction to the band, their sound is immediately powerful, melodic yet hard-hitting, and musically masterful in every way. Delicate synth riffs meet with heavy distortion and a series of captivating performances that prove increasingly impressive as things progress.
“I make this music for me because it is my way of venting and artistically expressing my emotions in a constructive way instead of going online and complaining or doing other things.”
“On the one hand, you have the energy, aggression, primal power and delivery that could melt your face off if you stood too close. And on the other you have melodic sweetness, the calm eye at the centre of the storm.”
Another step in the right direction for modern rock, and yet another hit of creative individuality and musical realness from DeadEyeChokeHold.
A conceptual and consistent presentation of deep-running artistry. What better way to spend your remaining time than to create from the depths of the soul and without a single restraint or concern outside of what needs to be expressed?
Remorsefully Numb as a band undoubtedly present an impressive level of unity – the sections of the song offer notable complexity in terms of musicianship & performance, reinforcing the fact that a festival or bigger indie stage would be the perfect setting in which to witness the song & the band in real time.
Pietro Cottone tackles the world’s issues and his feelings towards them in an upfront and respectably honest way. These things affect us all, and this album is a stark yet great way to start the conversation.
Texas Cut Throat create for a reason, this is an expression of a particular sentiment, and the way they’ve put it together quite literally screams both depth and professionalism. A quickly recognizable track and the sort that hard-rock and metal fans will likely have been craving for quite some time.
There’s a certain quality that occasionally emerges in a rock vocal where the artist genuinely and thoroughly submits to the performance – bidding farewell to concerns or audience reception, diving head-first into the moment and letting it guide the sound of their voice with whatever levels of passion and intensity the song in hand draws from them. This was the first thing to strike me about the sound of The Infection.
Finding September lead with intensely high energy levels on this EP release. The band offer pop sensibilities, memorable melodies, and a fast-paced, hard-hitting musicality that sky rockets their sound way further into punk than pop.
