ALBUM REVIEW: Helmet – Left


 

Helmet are a legacy band, who at over 30 years into their career– albeit with an early 2000’s hiatus– are still very much thought of as a specific, early mid-nineties era band when alternative rock was king. And for good reason, as they are a band who certainly had a huge influence with early Interscope Records such as Meantime (1992) and Betty (1994), providing a sludgy down-tuned version of the more commercial alternative styles of the time.

INTERVIEW: Matty Joseph and Graham Stanush of Return to Dust on “Black Road” and Sharing The Spotlight


 

We chatted with Matty and Graham of Return To Dust about their new single and music video “Black Road!” The modern post-Grunge band is killing it early in their career with this amazing track, a production deal with legend Jim Kaufman (Anti-Flag, Danny Worsnop, Night Riots, Helmet), and an artistic vision is seldom seen. We discussed their humble beggings, moving out to LA to start their career, the influences of Alice In Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, and others, and a lot more! Their new EP is releasing July, 28th, 2023

REVIEWS ROUND-UP: ft. Church of Misery, Witchskull, Altar of Oblivion, Wytch Hazel, Yawning Man, and Tigercub


 

Nearly thirty years of diving headfirst into the void, and Church of Misery are back with Tatsu Mikami once more giving worship to the Blackest of Sabbath’s, acolyte to ‘The Riff’ and servant to the retro groove once more on Born Under A Mad Sign (Rise Above). Joined once again after a twenty-five-year absence by original vocalist Kazuhiro Asaeda, there is a fine sense of anticipation about the Japanese doom merchants seventh full-length.

ALBUM REVIEW: Sleep Token – Take Me Back to Eden


 

I don’t want to speak too early or jinx anything, but this Heavy Metal idea has been in a resurgence as of late. Bear in mind that a lot of the old promotional tools have been inactive for years. MTV lost its ass and stopped using the first letter of its acronym long ago and whatever is left of commercial rock radio is perfectly content to spin the same Stone Temple Pilots singles until the sun or Clear Channel finally burn out. Yet here we are in the age of streaming and shortened attention spans with several young acts making headway. Continue reading

Black Space Riders’ new album is entitled We’ve Been Here Before (Cargo Records).
