Throwback: “Boneyards” from Parkway Drive!

Time for a Metalcore classic to shake off the cobwebs of the post weekend blues and for that we have “Boneyards” from Byron Bay Australian titans Parkway Drive. One of the many highlights from 2007’s “Horizons“, produced, engineered and mixed by Killswitch Engage gutarist Adam Dutkiewicz it actually received mixed reviews from the critics as being

Throwback: “Cyclops” from Cyclops Cataract!

Another year older, wiser and more aggressive… Usually we throwback like a Quarterback in American football with a strong right arm a decade or more at least but a new dawn, a new day and a new year gives us the opportunity to do something a little different. Scottish Black Metal act Cyclops Cataract gave

Throwback: “About That Life” from Attila!

It seems that major festivals have the power of persuasion and cash to get bands back together for reunion shows as well as ask them to do full album sets these days so they have something exclusive to sell to the ticket hungry public. In the case of Party Deathcore mutants from Atlanta Georgia Atilla,

Throwback: “Pure Hatred” by Chimaira!

If you haven’t already heard, there is a home town throwdown happening in Cleveland Ohio for the 20th Anniversary of “The Impossibility Of Reason” by Chimaira.

Throwback: “Translation of Fixes” from Twelve Tribes!

Produced by then Killswitch Engage vocalist Howard Jones, “The Rebirth Of Tragedy” was an album two years in the making when it arrived from Dayton Ohio Melodic Hardcore merchants Twelve Tribes on 1st June 2004. That was dead centre of the quintets decade long career. A document of their struggles, successes and personal growth as

Throwback: “Barn Burner” from The Agony Scene!

Whether we will see Tulsa Oklahoma Heavy Metallers The Agony Scene after the tragic passing of bassist and backing vocalist Jay White again remains to be seen but after four albums in a fifteen year stretch from 2003 to 2018 they have made their mark. Back in 2007 they released their one and only album with

Throwback: “The Profit Of Doom” by Type O Negative

The fifteenth anniversary of “Dead Again” by Type O Negative, the seventh and final of the American Gothic Metal acts deadly sins before the tragic death of frontman Peter Steele in 2010, is something worth celebrating. The ten track affair runs to 78 minutes and includes a tribute to Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell Abbott in

Throwback: “Urban Discipline” from Biohazard!

Well, well, well… three wholes in the ground. With their 35th Anniversary on the horizon, 2023 will see the return to the live arena of the classic line up of guitarist vocalist Billy Gradziadei, guitarist Bobby Hambel, drummer Danny Schuler and bassist vocalist Evan Seinfeld otherwise known as Brooklyn New York Hardcore legends Biohazard. They’re teasing

Throwback: “Ain’t Live Grand” by Atreyu

It’s seems hard to believe that “Suicide Notes And Butterfly Kisses” by Atreyu has reached its 20th Anniversary as the American Metalcore act celebrate with a vinyl release but… the sands of time slip through the fingers with greater speed the older you get. It’s the only record to feature bassist Chris Thomson and saw

Throwback: “Moon Child” by Valleys!

They say that sooner or later all good things must come to an end so breaking with tradition we pay tribute to North Carolina residents Valleys as they call time on their career in Metalcore and go their separate ways. As a band they never had it easy and often luck was as as thin
