Bring Me The Horizon – amo (, )
8th February 2019 -

It’s no secret that Bring Me the Horizon are no longer a metal band. Their deathcore and metalcore ‘Suicide Season’ and ‘Count Your Blessings’ days are truly over. Having been a massive fan circa Sempiternal (I still abide by the fact this was their best release), I was initially very judgemental of their drastic development. However, Bring Me’s change in… Read More »

Cane Hill – Kill The Sun. (, )
18th January 2019 -

Cane Hill are one of the most thrilling new bands around right now. Since smashing their way onto the scene in 2015 with their psychotic self titled e.p, there has only been one calendar year since where we haven’t had a release from them, with two full lengths and a live album having been added to their evergrowing and ever… Read More »
