Our Final Hour
After conquering England, post-hardcore band ‘Our Final Hour’ finally takes on Europe. Sitting outside the Rovers Return pub in the grey, Isle of Man weather, Our Final Hour have a much deserved break as they talk about their previous European tour and the difficulty of living somewhere with such a minor music scene. Originating from such a small island, the band has had to work...
Pixies- Surfer Rosa & Come on Pilgrim
Experimental, soothing, catchy. Three words that usually would not go together, yet perfectly describe the Pixies fourth studio album, Surfer Rosa & Come on Pilgrim. The album is a complete mix of songs that somehow fit together to make arguably one of the band’s best records. While the soft sound on tracks like ‘Where is my Mind?’ and...
Non-profit record label to 'overthrow the current...
A non-profit record label claims that they are trying to ‘overthrow the current profit-based music business’. The label was founded by Ray Holroyd, under the name of ‘Revolution Harmony’, with the purpose of letting artists release their music at no cost of their own. Although the label itself is new, it has partnered up with the likes of Sony Music Entertainment and...
Good music doesn't always come at a price...
Buying CDs can be expensive; it can be so much easier and cheaper to simply download music, but I can’t be the only person that still prefers to have the actual CD. Many people claim that they can’t afford to build up their CD collection, but there are still ways to buy good albums without spending too much money. Take ‘That’s Entertainment!’ for example, a place where you can find good albums...
A little off topic...but you guys should...
Tom Cook, 16, talks about what it’s like being in thrash metal band, Korpser. “Our original name was Shotgun Surgery, but when we found out that it was already taken, we realised that we needed to change it; we had a gig the following week so we had to be fast. We eventually came up with Corpse, but accidentally spelt it with a K in a typo. We thought that it was catchy and it evolved into...
The Bouncing Souls- The Gold Song
‘The Gold Record’ is the seventh studio album from New Jersey based punk rockers, The Bouncing Souls. Despite the band having been around for over 25 years, their music continues to evolve, ensuring that each album holds something completely different from the last. While the album seems to be much calmer than some of the band’s earlier music, the songs are just as honest as...
Marilyn Manson- Lest We Forget (The Best Of)
. Marilyn Manson’s 2004 album ‘Lest We Forget (The Best Of)’ is just as provocative as expected from the US shock rockers. The album features some of the band’s most controversial songs, including ‘Get Your Gunn’, a song from the band’s first studio album released in 1994, which was voted number fifteen in Gigwise’s ‘20 most controversial songs of all time’. Despite the...
Kings of Leon- Only by the Night
. In 2008, Kings of Leon changed their look completely. From looking like grunge style rockers to becoming more indie-like, their music seemed to follow. Their 2008 album, ‘Only by the Night,’ has clearly brought them large amounts of fame, making their music popular among a more mainstream audience. However, more popular does not necessarily mean better....
My Chemical Romance- Danger Days: The True Lives...
. Trading in their Black Parade gear and gurney’s for bright leather and ray guns, My Chemical Romance are back with not only a new look, but also an unusual new sound. Although MCR are known for their ever changing sound throughout their career, they have gone one step further with the new album ‘Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous...
Hole- Nobody's Daughter
Continuing on from her 2004 solo album ‘America’s Sweetheart’, it is clear that Courtney Love has something to prove as she brings back the ‘Hole’ name for her latest album, ‘Nobody’s Daughter’. Claiming even herself that her one and only solo album reached a disastrous result, Love seems much more pleased with the latest addition to her discography. For...
