Demons – Privation

Demons play the kind of frantic, scrappy-sounding punk rock, backed with this sludgy, noise-rock tone of indignation that fans of The Bronx and Whores will love.

Robot Death Monkey – Druid Odyssey

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.

Raging Speedhorn – Hard To Kill

Hard To Kill by Raging Speedhorn is the sound of a band that has weathered many changes and turns in their 20+ year career but still sound strong.

Kestrels – Dream Or Don’t Dream

Kestrels are the heart and soul of frontman Chad Peck and Dream Or Don’t Dream is an album that brims with want, longing, emotion and fuzzing riffs

Shuck – Petrichor and Rainbows

From the destructive minds of Al Wilson and Jon Perry along with Andi Jackson for the ride, Shuck, could well be the band to sit nicely in the middle of that Venn-diagram of heavy, melody and aggression.

Casual Nun – Resort For Dead Desires

On Resort For Dead Desires, Casual Nun plays with the notion of genre, crafting something that fits the spectrum of chaotic, thoughtful, reflective and incandescently abrasive all at once.

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.

Hawk Eyes – Advice

Advice by Hawk Eyes is a dark, brooding body of work. A concept piece offering guidance, corrupted narrators and bizarre tales of defiance, acceptance and grim determination.
