Track Review: “Agenda” by Akkadian

Taking their name from the ancient Mesopotamian Empire, Akkadian are a quintet who like to muse on themes of the ancient civilizations of the Sumerians and Egyptians while touching on Inter-dimensional travel and beings, something which runs deep within the mystery of both cultures. They formed in 2018 in Cambridge, releasing singles “Black Sand” and

Listmania: 20 Years of “L.D. 50” by Mudvayne!

The influence of Mudvayne shouldn’t be underestimated when it comes to Technicality and during in their early records a certain amount of Progressive nature.

NEWS: Arimea start the next chapter!

Riff Police! Pull Over! #130: Siamese Vs Led Zeppelin!

Formed in Copenhagen Denmark in 2011, we didn’t come across the brilliance that is Siamese until Tech-Fest in 2018. They took the stage as an unknown entity to us and as is part of the joy of a festival, by the time they left the stage, we were won over. Mashing up their own songs

NEWS: Gutlocker get “Stuck” in Isolation!

When it comes to the music video, some bands just don’t get it. Do your fans really just want to see you miming along to the single the whole way through with a faux leather grin, pretending to play you’re instruments when they ain’t even plugged in? It gets boring after a while. Variety is

Review: “Cry Havok” EP by Gutlocker

We’ve covered enough goings on from the grumpy four-piece Metal band from a quaint Surrey town full of alien tripods known as Woking, who are well-armed with gnarly riffs and posh accents without reviewing their debut EP. After all, they’re working on a full length record so it only seems right that two and two

Documentary: Desert Island Guitars with Chimaira!

Chimaira guitarist Rob Arnold has filmed this interesting show and tell style documentary about his guitar collection and which ones he couldn’t do without if he was stranded on a desert island. On the timing front, Gutlocker vocalist Craig McBrearty has been sharing footage of himself listening to his favourite records, including ones by the

The Black Map #102: Gutlocker from Woking!
