Fury, fire and free. All things Anarchy Reigns have in their arsenal at this point in time. Fury is embedded within the lyrics, fire is a heavily used necessity in any Anarchy Reigns live show and the free aspect, well, new track ‘Hypocrisy’ is available for no bank busting price, in fact, no price at all.

In today’s current climate of greed, poverty and divide, you can be sure that Anarchy Reigns will always give a voice to the people who deserve it. With a fiercely honest front man in ‘Hitch’, the band have only to perfect the musicality that fits best with the subject matters they want to get across to fans, and the best way to do that is Metal.

Anarchy Reigns – Heavy Metal or Light Entertainment?

Though metal fans are a loyal breed, the bands themselves do rather seem to come along in waves – their longevity may outlast that of pretty much any genre, but their emergence is extremely haphazard. Who was the last BIG heavy metal band? As in, straight ahead hard rock/heavy metal, not some weird cross-over hybrid? Is it tough for them to breakthrough or are they simply content with a steady trickle of gigs and a sizable continental following? Anarchy Reigns are a new British band who further muddle the confusion.

They are a band of mostly linear qualities: leather; hair (lack of and profusion); volume; guitars; slightly cringe-worthy lyrics. Their posturing as rock’s voice of the people presupposes that we hadn’t considered politicians to be liars (or has the song has it, “Liars, Liars” – like New York, they named it twice) or that we’re still apoplectic with rage about George W. Bush hunting down weapons of mass destruction TWENTY YEARS ago. Not that I’m condoning the invasion of Iraq but this is horse bolting of the highest order. The accompanying video is similarly well-intentioned but hopelessly out of step. The problem with dragging current affairs and politics into music is that it dates so horribly remarkably quickly, let alone if you start off on the wrong footing. John Lennon protesting about the war in Vietnam now seems quaint and hippyish – Anarchy Reigns’ highlighting of a Middle Eastern crisis which has been superseded at least twice by further conflicts. It’s all a bit odd.

Musically it’s good fun, if unlikely to set the world alight – it’s a little bit Rammstein; a little bit Deep Purple. It’s very safe, the kind of thing you’d be happy leaving your little ones listening to without fear of them being corrupted. My first metal band. However, it’s a positive thing for metal and a positive thing for the British music scene that bands like Anarchy Reigns are willing to stand up and be counted. Do what you love and there will always be an audience which appreciates it.

Homerik… more like HOMEROCK!

It’s not every day a band writes about Ancient Egyption curses is it? Well prepare yourself for ‘Homerik’ and their debut self titled album.

 


The New York trio; Ken Candelas (The Mad Composer), Andrew Petriske (The Daemon), and Obed Gonzalez (The Gatherer) have spent the last three years bringing together their love of video game, film music and dark mythology with their love of bone shattering metal, to push the genre to a new dimension…. And though a strange mix, you know what? Homerik have pulled together one of the most ambitious and most creative albums you are likely to hear this year!

The lead track A Song of the Night Part 1 (A full 7 minutes 15 seconds of melodic metal creativity) tells you everything you need to know about the band. It leads you in to a false sense of security, which builds through 3 minutes of spooky yet etherial female vocals and orchestral music, curtesy of Carla Candelas & Nilsa Astacio. Just as you think you’ve settled into the song it blasts you into a tribal/ metal/ medieval mishmash.

My personal highlight of the album The Ire of Green brings together Irish style folk with fiddle and tin whistle mixed effortlessly with sharp, stabbing guitar chords, reminiscent of a heavier, darker Gogol Bordello.

Truly some of the most creative music you will ever hear, definitely worth your time. Think, System of a Down have gone back in time, stollen some ancient Egyptian scrolls and to the depths of hell – travelled around the world and now are writing songs about what they’ve seen.

 

A Song of the Night Part 1 is available on Spotify now https://open.spotify.com/artist/1Ry0Y2JiVXjpidTHDpYVQx.
You can Stream and Download the rest of their self titled album when released on Halloween.

Electrifying self-titled debut album from Belfast rock band, The Irontown Diehards

Belfast band, The Irontown Diehards, deliver this self-titled debut album, a hi-octane rock riff-fest set for release on May 27th.

 

Citing Alter Bridge, Black Stone Cherry and Bon Jovi as influences, The Irontown Diehards are a band that hard rock enthusiasts worldwide need in their iTunes libraries. Making up their sound are belting vocal hooks, speeding rhythms and headbanging riffs that’ll leave your neck toned.

As described by Belfast Metalheads Reunited: ‘they have combined the essential elements to forge a fierce rock sound that is delivered as if they wield a battleaxe’.

 

A formidable live act, the band match their lively sound with a distinctive image, dressing unconventionally in Victorian worker garb as if they just so happened to stumble out of a time machine into the 21st Century and discover electric guitars. All the members have previously played in top Northern Ireland rock and metal bands including Last Known Addiction, Almighty Fallen, Stormzone, Warcrux and Dead Zebra. Their collective musical experience shows, both in their musicianship and their performance.

 

‘Fly High’ is the lead single, a soaring ballad with an explosive chorus. It features a cracking guitar solo and culminates into a mighty and epic crescendo.

‘’…there is no doubt that they are bringing something new and interesting to a Northern Ireland scene in which it can sometimes be difficult to find’’ write Planet Mosh.

The album will be available for pre-order shortly, ready for its release on May 27th.

Russia’s Metal Invasion Mechanical Man to Release New Album

MMNew

Quoted by webzine Prog Sphere as an album that “is comprised of everything an album must include, and that is energy, powerful performance, melody, [and] well-thought songwriting” Mechanical Man’s eight track release moves between the spheres of traditional heavy metal aggression and melodic experimentalism as epitomised by the eponymous opening track ‘Mechanical Man’.

Since their formation in 2012 the band consisting of Alex Zefiridis (vocals), Serj Danilov (guitars), Alexander Lee (bass), Vitaly Ostrov (drums) and Eugeny Komarov (keyboards) have made a name for themselves among some well known musicians in the metal scene. The professionalism of their music has been acknowledged by some of their main influences such as Elias Viljanen of Sonata Arctica, a band who they supported, as well as Peter Hallaraker of Leprous who they played alongside with at Metropolis Fest in Minsk, Belarus, earlier this year. The single ‘Madhouse’ which was released in June 2014 was produced by none other than producer Hiili Hiilesmaa who is known to have worked with bands like HIM, Lordi, Apocalyptica, Moonspell or Amorphis in the past.

The music is underpinned by Alex’ emotionally strong and at the same time heavily muscular vocals. Adding the warmer sounds of Eugeny’s keyboard riffs to the overall energetic masculinity of their sound has earned the band compliments across a range of reviews. One of the leading underground rock websites, The Moshville Times, has praised the record as one of the most exciting upcoming albums which is marked by a maturity that suggests that the band has been around for a lot longer than only three years.

Mechanical Man has started out as a project brought to life by guitarist Serj who has moved across the country from the Eastern outskirts of Russia to Moscow writing both the lyrics and musical arrangements for each instrument. Taking inspiration from artists such as Muse, Rush or Dream Theater is making a clear statement in the industry by showing that a Russian metal band can easily be up there with heavy, earthy rock music that’s coming out of Scandinavia and other countries.

The album ‘Mechanical Man’ will be out on 30th January 2016.

Rock Group With Brand New EP – Movements

Listen to ‘Unknown’ here:

The foursome have used as inspiration their “everyday struggles and fears”, as heard in the dark opening track ‘Disappearing Act’, while the distorted vocals and heavy guitar bring the genres of rock, metal and grunge together in ‘Unknown’ and ‘Cat’s Eyes’. If you’re a fan of Queens of the Stone Age or Sonic Youth, you will want to give The Lightness of Being a listen.

The Lightness of Being have already been backed by big names in the music industry – they have worked with The Breeders’ engineer Nick Trepka, played with up-and-coming blues rock band Graveltones, and have headlined venues around London. And with the release of ‘Movements’ they’re bound to turn even more heads in 2015.
