Review: Doc Hammer – Neon Devil LP

Feel the Hammer! From the hot and sun-bathed California, we get hit by a beer can fueled party bus! Nothing but a relentless party commando who just wants to get us stoned and tanked with a wall of sound made by heavy, solid and fuzzed-as-fuck guitar riffing. Doc Hammer‘s only aim is to melt our brains out, bringing us in an excess labyrinth, deafened by an insanely loud volume and numbed by smoke. The punk…

Review: Rejekts – Triratna

Review: Rejekts – Triratna

An introspective journey with a crust soundtrack Triratna is a Sanskrit word that means “three gems”, this word represents a key concept in oriental phylosophy, the three gems are body, mind and soul, the titles of the three tracks of this album. Three different points of view on a unique subject: human nature. Rejekts followed this inspiration for the creation of a musical journey where crust and black metal sounds are melted, a journey that…

Review: La Piena – Self Titled 7″ EP

Review: La Piena – Self Titled 7″ EP

Flood Alert! In a whirlwind of guttural and screaming voices, buzzsaw-style guitars and bullet-shooting drums, the new 7” inch from La Piena explodes in our hands like a cluster bomb. La Piena is a five-piece band from the Grosseto province (in Tuscany) and the name means, literally, The Flood. Those guys are absolutely not fresh men in the Italian underground scene, in fact they all come from other different projects, like Vanz, Colonnelli, Scum, Malanga…

Review: The Bounders – S/T EP

Review: The Bounders – S/T EP

The Bounders’ homonymous debut album “The Bounders” were born in Pescara in 2016, when Gian Marco Toracchio, Riccardo Cilli and Mattia De Luca met. They started writing songs by chance and then played them live, sharing the stage with bands such as Nashville Pussy, CUT, The Peawees and many others. Therefore, their first EP surely deserves our attention and we couldn’t miss the chance to review it. Power bass lines and vocals are literally “incendiary”…

Review: Sinoque – Demo

Review: Sinoque – Demo

Sweat, blood and tears, Sinoque’s demo is a synthpunk UFO coming straight outta the Cuckoo’s nest. In French, Sinoque means “crazy, outlaw, demented” which gives a pretty good idea of the electric and smoky atmosphere of their sets.  I had the luck to hit the road with Anna, Nahida, Git, and Tom. Show after show, they managed to bring me into their sick, sad and sensual world where laughter and love stories turn sour. Nights stolen…

Review: Jx Arket – About Existence Ep

Review: Jx Arket – About Existence Ep

Second discographic test for the turinese band with a mix of power and melody Jx Arket from Turin come back after two years since their debut “Meet me abroad”, produced this time by the great Antigony Records. The quintet proposes us an interesting mix of Post Hardcore, Emo, Screamo and Metalcore, with a style similar to that of many 90’s/early 2000’s bands, among which are Thursday or the very first A Day To Remember. The…
