As if to punctuate yesterday’s post on metal-douchebaggery, there was another moment a couple days ago where the br00tal metal overlords took to their keyboards. But this time they were brought down by the almighty Rob Zombie. Continue reading “Rob Zombie VS Brutal Metal Idiots”
So I was introduced to this track over on Art Rocker Radio where London feminist hardcore act Petrol Girls did a session of four or so songs. The band was raw, emotive, full of anger and were obviously well versed in filling a room with some honest hardcore. But what really made ‘Restless’ stand out was vocalist Liepa’s description of it: “this next one’s about … Continue reading Track of the Week #15 – Petrol Girls ‘Restless’
To fully appreciate the driving power behind Running’s ‘We Never close’ it really needs to be experienced as part of the album’s full and intense package. From the very first bars, Running’s latest album ‘Wake Up Applauding’ maintains a solid, relentless pulse that grabs you by the collar and drags you through to the end.

I’ve been a fan of these guys since seeing them open up for The Misfits at Islington Academy back in 2013. It was early, the room was still filling up and they absolutely tore the stage apart. Without a doubt In Evil Hour left a far bigger mark on me than even The Misfits’ set did (though Dez Cadena was outstanding.)

It’s rare to find a film that can truly devastate you, but 2013 indie drama Still Life came very close. With a stark portrayal of a man alone in a thankless job surrounded by little more than grey-white walls and deceased loners, it leaves you clutching to the few rays of hope buried in the story.

It quickly clear to see that John, passionate about his job, is one of the only people who cares about these lost souls. Even from the opening sequence, we see him attending funerals as the only guest.
