It’s safe to say, Edinburgh’s Robot Death Monkey really do not take themselves seriously. Drinking strong lager, riffs, and being the finest stoner-groove machine in the land seems to be their reason for existing and fair play to them.
Watertank – Silent Running
On the strength of Silent Running, the third album from Watertank, you might just discover a band you’ve been waiting for all these years.
TRAPS – The Fighter EP
TRAPS are made up of current members of Holy Roar roster-botherers, OHHMS (all hail the riffs) and feel like the indignant and bratty little brother to these Kent-based doom merchants.
The St. Pierre Snake Invasion – Caprice Enchante
It’s been a while since I’ve heard an album that absolutely boils with so many conflicting emotions. From first impressions though, absolutely everything on Caprice Enchanté sounds angry.
USA Nails – Life Cinema
On Life Cinema, USA Nails continue to hack, carve and flesh out this ghastly totem of their acerbic and unique sound.
Prayer Group – ICUP
Prayer Group are an excellently named noise bunch of lads from Richmond, Virginia. Why should you care? Read on to discover more.
Track by track: HEADS. – Collider
We love a bit of HEADS. at Keep It Fast, their angled, jagged, noisy concentrated sound is a raucous delight. To celebrate, here’s a track by track breakdown of Collider, their second album.
Black Moth – Anatomical Venus
Hailing from Leeds, home to Hawk Eyes and Blacklisters, Black Moth are driven by huge, pulsating riffs. Imagine if the sound of all the vehicles in Mad Max: Fury Road were guitars, then that’s close to the sound this five piece produce.
Mutoid Man – War Moans
Opening track Melt Your Mind couldn’t be more aptly titled – it’s a shred of riotous, unhinged energy that bubbles, bursts and roars. In just over 2 minutes, it’s slams home a vibrant blast of melodic metallic punk leaving your jaw on the floor. This is swiftly followed by the drum-happy clatter of Bone Chain, which sounds like Van Halen writing a pop song for Kvelertak.
Closet Disco Queen – Sexy Audio Deviance for Punk Bums
Now, that’s a great EP title, seriously – well done the lads from La Chaux De Fonds. Closet Disco Queen are on some kind of bizarre quest to make sure you’re dripping in sweat. No, not through fear, but through their turbo-charged raw, untamed power.
