ALBUM REVIEW: Kold Creature – A Weakened State

June 6, 2017 Leslie Phillips

Hailing from the southside of Brisbane – Kold Creature is yet another reason to love the sunshine state and the melodic groove metal stylings of their residents. After an atmospheric opening with the largely superfluous ‘Awakening’, first single ‘Edge Of […]

ALBUM REVIEW: Cyanide 4 – Nekyia

April 29, 2017 Mark Rockpit

There’s a real earthy accessibility and youthful vitality to Greece’s Cyanide 4 and their vintage take on Hard Rock. Take the opening track ‘Restless’ – it’s nothing you haven’t heard before, nothing that you didn’t […]

ALBUM REVIEW: Inglorious – II

April 19, 2017 Mark Rockpit

Classic Hard Rock with huge riffs, soulful vocals and songs that run the gamut from Dio-like swagger to Jagged Edge/Skin style cool. Inglorious’ debut album may have been very good indeed, but album number two blows […]
