New Band of the Day: Onnírica

New Band of the Day: Onnírica

Brazil can lay claim to some excellent bands and the obvious one to cite is Sepultura. Coming from the same city, Belo Horizonte, is a melodic metal group called Onnírica. I really need to find out how to pronounce that! Guitarist Leles dropped me a line and asked me to check [...]

Interview Archive (audio): Mark Rankin of Gun

Just for a slight change, here’s an interview I didn’t do myself but which I probably organised. As you’ve probably noticed, a lot of the interviews I’m posting are from the early/mid-90’s when rock and metal was pretty much being buried by the popular media. Iron Maiden were playing 1500-capacity [...]

New Band of the Day: Norma Jean

New Band of the Day: Norma Jean

Six albums down the line and I only just hear of them. This is one of the blessings / curses of this job. I get to hear about new-to-me music, and then I feel gutted that I’ve got fifteen years of a band’s history to catch up on. Norma Jean [...]

New Band of the Day: Stahlsarg

New Band of the Day: Stahlsarg

New Band of the Day: 3 Parts Dead

New Band of the Day: 3 Parts Dead

Dateline Boston (what does “dateline” mean, anyway?). Red Socks. Bars where everyone knows your name that are so good even The Wildhearts sing about them. And 3 Parts Dead, a band who play rock’n’roll. No bells. No whistles. Just guitars, bass, drums and singing. Why mess with a classic formula, [...]

New Band of the Day: Damned Spring Fragrantia

New Band of the Day: Damned Spring Fragrantia

Travelling abroad again, from the dark beers of Tyneside to the frothy lagers of Peroni. Similarly from the hard, basic metal edge of Arcite to a more technical, blended, crossover from today’s new band Damned Spring Fragrantia. Starting a straightforward metalcore band in 2006, they’ve added various tweaks to their [...]
