Death Remains – Destroy / Rebuild (, )
5th June 2017 -

When a name like Death Remains you know you’re not about to listen to a pop-punk band. Hailing from England’s capital city, the end of April saw Death Remains release their sophomore album Destroy / Rebuild.

Every Time I Die – Low Teens (, )
18th November 2016 -

Every Time I Die have only gone and done it again. Eighteen years since their conception and they’re still the absolute juggernaut that they’ve always been, delivering yet again with album number eight. ‘Low Teens’ opens with a very unnerving riff that carries on throughout the opening track ‘Fear and Trembling’ before Keith Buckley spits the first vocals and the song… Read More »
