Collapse The Sky – exclusive track by track feature

Towering UK metal crew Collapse The Sky have just revealed their ear-splitting new album, White Flags. The engulfing riff merchants have also set loose a brand-new video for the track, "Dream Catcher". Scroll down to watch it! With all of that in mind, we exclusively asked the band to give us this track by track … Continue reading Collapse The Sky – exclusive track by track feature

Headline Act: I Fight Bears

I Fight Bears have crossed through our sights before, with a recent video release and back in 2017 when Nick covered them as a Band of the Day. Half a decade on from that, the band are on the cusp of releasing some more music, so we deemed it time to prise them away from … Continue reading Headline Act: I Fight Bears

Classic Cover: Korpiklaani – “Ennen” (original by Joe Jackson, popularised by Anthrax)

This is an interesting one, and not new so apologies for those who've heard it since it came out last year. "Ennen" is a Finnish version of "Got The Time", probably best known in metal circles as coming from Anthrax's Persistence of Time album. That itself was a thrash version of Joe Jackson's original which featured … Continue reading Classic Cover: Korpiklaani – “Ennen” (original by Joe Jackson, popularised by Anthrax)

Golden Oldie: Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators – Apocalyptic Love

Working as Slash’s second solo album, whilst Velvet … Continue reading Golden Oldie: Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators – Apocalyptic Love

Headline Act: Immortal Pain

It's nice to revisit older bands on this feature and we actually had Immortal Pain in the original version of this feature back in 2013. Back then I just found bands I liked and told people to check out a song or something. They recently spotted the post and got in touch to let me … Continue reading Headline Act: Immortal Pain

Classic Cover: As The Palaces Burn – “Mass Hypnosis” (original by Sepultura)

The blurb for this track came to us in Portuguese, which makes sense for a Brazilian band covering another Brazilian band. As The Palaces Burn are starting 2022 with the release of a new EP, Offer To The Gods, and their style is based heavily on "classic era" Sepultura. As such, this version of "Mass Hypnosis" … Continue reading Classic Cover: As The Palaces Burn – “Mass Hypnosis” (original by Sepultura)
