Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins?! FIGHT! Drink.

You’d have to go a few thousand miles to find someone who didn’t know who AC/DC were or at least be able to recognise one of their cuts but when it came to their seventh seminal album there must have been some nerves with Brian Johnson replacing the larger than life Bon Scott after his

Review: “Self Titled” by Butcher Babies (10th Anniversary)

Produced by Andrew Mudrock (Godsmack, Avenged Sevenfold, Eighteen Visions) and self released in 2011, the debut EP from Los Angeles California quintet Butcher Babies was followed by a music video for “Mr. Slowdeath” almost a year later. That has reached 5.7 million views on YouTube to date and combined with their high octane live show

Throwback: “Beauty Fiend” by My Ruin!

It seems like yesterday but fifteen years ago My Ruin were playing The Mean Fiddler in London England on the My Brutal Language Tour. That was 2006 with the band in fine form thanks to the injection of a fresh rhythm section of drummer Matt LeChavalier and bassist Chris Lisee joining the husband and wife

Review: “Not that Godly” by Godgiven

After a pair of EPs and a demo since forming in 2012 you might not have expected 2021 to be the year that seasoned musicians from Budapest, Hungary known as Godgiven chose to release their debut album “Not That Godly” but then is there ever a good time? The album has been in the works

Review: “Maleza” by Bala

Having already managed to leave a mark in the Alternative Metal scene which helped them break the chains of national touring and taken them to as far afield as United Kingdom, Japan and Australia with impressive live shows that have even attracted international festivals such as Stone and Dusted (US) or Rock al Parque (Colombia),

Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins?! FIGHT! Negative Creep #2!

When will anything from Tura Satana appear on Spotify? We can’t answer that one. The Los Angeles based band who released a pair of records in 1996’s “All Is Not Well” and 1997’s “Relief Through Release” are ironically just as well known posthumously as they were when they were active due to vocalist Tairrie B

Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins?! FIGHT! Turned Out

Rewinding the tape to 1992 and American Alternative Metallers Helmet, who incidentally we got into off of the back of their appearance on the soundtrack to Brandon Lee’s The Crow, it’s time to pay tribute to “Meantime“. Not just a hugely commercially successful album but also one that influenced a whole myriad of bands in

Throwback: “Made To Measure” by My Ruin!

Rewinding the tape back to 2003 and the project from husband and wife duo Mick Murphy and Tarrie B otherwise known as My Ruin for today’s throwback offering is an absolute pleasure. Label issues dogged the bands career and so they spent the majority of it DIY in order to control all aspects of the

Review: “Morality” by Exclave

Tearing up New England over the past four years have been Exclave, a band labeled a Thrash/Doom crossover act, hailing from Portland Maine who feature in their ranks members of numerous other projects including Quiet Warning, Cryptic and Apollyon. Their self titled debut dropped in 2016 and following a year of shows they dropped a

Review: “Old Stardust, Love, and Chaos” by Juliet Ruin

Edmonton, capital of Canada’s Alberta province, sits on the North Saskatchewan River and is home to Juliet Ruin. Comprising Kent Geislinger with Guitars and Vocals, Jesse Bauman with Drums, Jess Ruin with Lead Vocals, Wesley Rands with Guitars and Cody Reid with Bass and Backing Vocals, the band have dabbled with low tuned 7 string
