Bury Tomorrow Cannibal 2020

Album Review // BURY TOMORROW ‘Cannibal’

Anthemic, cathartic and rebellious, metal heavyweights Bury Tomorrow take a very personal approach to their new album Cannibal, as they take a deep dive into vocalist Dani Winter-Bates’ struggles with mental health to remind us we’re not alone in our journey. Following pre-released tunes such

Grey Daze Amends 2020

Album Review // GREY DAZE ‘Amends’

If we were to explain this album in 3 words, they would be ‘tragic, ‘vulnerable’ and above all… ‘evocative’. Time has come for Chester Bennington’s young self to be revealed to the world in its most true and authentic form. After the icon’s untimely and

Album Review // PALAYE ROYALE ‘The Bastards’

Raw, mad, brutal, honest and vulnerable is a strange cocktail of words but very accurate in describing Palaye Royale’s rollercoaster of an album, The Bastards. There couldn’t be a smoother way of preparing the listeners and introducing them to the madness to be released in

The 1975 Notes On A Conditional Form 2020

Album Review // THE 1975 ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’

The fourth album from The 1975, Notes On A Conditional Form translates worldly chaos and societal challenges using overlapped genres and themes. The erratically produced project, Notes On A Conditional Form, is the mere result of a sonic spillage that spread throughout 15 studios in

COPE - the shock doctrine 2020
