Serpent Venom - S/T - CDEP 2010

Alcohsonic ‘Songs From The Delirium Tremens World’ CD 2009

17th April 2010 at 9:02 am

Alcohsonic

Being of Gallic blood myself I’m always keen to check out French bands and try to spread the love a little bit. Let’s face it, France has given the world so much…amazing food, astounding wine, fashion, beautiful women (Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Adjani, Audrey Tatou…etc)…

Shroud Eater Interview

15th April 2010 at 8:53 am

Shroud Eater

Miami, Florida, bruisers Shroud Eater impressed and pummelled the bejesus out of me with their self-released, self-titled, 3-track EP late last year, so in the interests of bigging them up and telling you people exactly what you should be listening to, I thought it…

1000 Mods ‘Liquid Sleep’ 7″ 2010

14th April 2010 at 8:52 am

1000 Mods

10th April 2010 at 9:16 am

Eyehategod

Moho Live, Manchester 06/04/10 The ceiling sweated. It dripped onto the heaving flesh mass below – a living organism made out of a hundred rabid NOLA sludge fans. Eyehategod were playing and the people couldn’t handle the euphoria. Fists pummelled the air and large…
