Interview with Moments

Belgian hardcore bruisers Moments are soon to release their latest EP Outlast. If you haven’t heard the band before, then now is a great time to get acquainted with their emotive brand of melodic heaviness.

With a passion and an energy that can’t be denied, Outlast is the kind of short, kick-ass release that you just want more of. Denied, all you can do is play it again and lap up the extremely moreish modern music that they make. The band know how to write a good tune.

Want to know more? You’ve come to the right place. Read on… Continue reading

Interview with Haze of Summer

Haze of Summer Logo

Haze of Summer’s debut album Znoi is a refreshing take on the current over-saturation of the worldwide black metal scene. This is an album that revels in corrupting black metal’s dark, grim base with lighter, summery moments, all the while staying surprisingly true to the originating style, while also going its own way down post-black metal pathways.

Do you know what? It works a treat, and Znoi is an extremely enjoyable listen.

Intrigued, and wanting to learn more about this enigmatic project, I caught up with the head man behind the band… Continue reading

Interview with Jagged Vision

Jagged Vision Header

Jagged Vision’s second album Death Is This World contains 10 tracks of tightly compressed rage and aggression. This is the type of violent metallic hardcore that can strip paint at 100 paces. Heady stuff. It’s also, however, not without its atypical moments; added stoner rock and sludge groove? Yes please. It’s all subsumed into an essentially heavy and nasty piece of work; Jagged Vision have created something quite special on their second album.

So, without further preamble, let’s find out some more… Continue reading

Interview with Craven Idol

Craven Idol are the real deal. Their latest album The Shackles of Mammon is an absolute scorcher. As with the best of releases; the more you listen to it, the better it gets.

As I said in my review of their latest creation – this is old-school quality with new-school fury and bite. It’s partly this combination that gives Craven Idol such a distinct personality, one that definitely sees them stand out from the hordes.

The very amicable Vrath went into detail about what makes the album so special, and what makes the band tick… Continue reading
