Reaper – Death Games.

My first impression of Liverpool based metallers Reaper was definitely not a grim one as they tear into current single ‘Death Games’ available now from their bandcamp page. The single thrashes and slashes akin to vintage Exodus as twin guitar mayhem from Daniel Moran (whose lead vocal sounds he gargles …

Exmortus – For the Horde [video / single]

Ah, Exmortus heats up another day in metal-dom! Stark black and white imagery, a dragon, swords, horns, a battle, a horde, scantily-clad women, blood, and fire: these California natives have heavy metal’s best and brightest tropes fenced in and neatly dispatched. The quartet works diligently on their music, and the …

Disfago – Disfago Double 7″ Single

Who are Disfago? You may ask because I can’t find much information about the band members. What I have managed to surmise is that they are a three piece thrash/punk band based in London who have all served time, in other bands, not literally! They released a five track double …

Hello=Fire – Angle To See [single]

Wow, what a fantastic surprise. Hello=Fire‘s heavy, dramatic, bombastic single, “Angle To See”, released in 2013 for Record Store Day and recently promoted by Schnitzel Records, represents a near-180 degree turn from the melodic, varied rock and pop heard on 2009’s eponymous debut. Hello=Fire mainman Dean Fertita‘s tenure in The …

Mini Mansions – Geronimo [single]

A band that’s been buzzed about as “a force to watch”, Mini Mansions hit BBC 1’s Single Of The Week with “Death Is A Girl” in mid-December, 2014. With that kind of accolade, and an upcoming full UK tour with Royal Blood, this sun-drenched American band are this week’s obvious Pop Focus choice. …

Hello=Fire – Parallel [single / video]

Similar to how Bob Dylan‘s “All Along the Watchtower” gained wider attention through Jimi Hendrix‘s incendiary cover, Dean Fertita‘s “Parallel” made music news headlines several years after being laid to tape, through The Dead Weather bandmate Jack White‘s quirky, angular-blues cover version. And that’s a good thing. The original “Parallel” …

Sweethead – Antony [single]

The musical brainchild of Troy Van Leeuwen (Failure, A Perfect Circle, Queens of the Stone Age) and Serrina Sims, California’s alt-rock Sweethead takes it’s name from a vintage “vulgar” David Bowie song, and it’s sound from the various eras of rock music. “Antony”, this first piece, recorded and shelved, not …

One – New Life [single]

“New Life”, by Warsaw native One (name: Adam Malicki), is a random find from a boredom-trawl on Twitter that asks for your attention. Freshly released, this single is a guitar-heavy instrumental track that opens with a waltzing, cracked funhouse flair. Rapidly shifting gears to synth-laden blues rock, and then to …

Down The Machine – Everything I Am Not

Caveat: don’t judge a band’s entire output based on one “free” song. This tune, “Everything I Am Not”, by West Yorkshire UK’s Down The Machine, sounds like a cross between industrial bands like Nine Inch Nails, grunge type outfits like Alice In Chains, and modern rock outfits like Audioslave. The …
