By the time I finish work and get through to Bannermans in Edinburgh, Atragon have already hit the stage. I get into the gig just as they rip into their second track “Sound In The Halls”. The venue is already pretty busy and plenty…

Loath ‘Total Peace’ CD/DD 2013

29th March 2014 at 10:15 am

Loath

Black Seal ‘Pyre’ CD/DD 2013

21st September 2013 at 9:31 am

Black Seal

Black Seal play a strange brew of punk/metal crossover with elements of stoner and doomy riffage. Sometimes it reminds me of a bygone era, verging on the Eighties UK Crossover sounds of Broken Bones, English Dogs etc. ‘Tain’t no bad thing in my book!…
