Review: Egestas – Oltre Le Rovine

Egestas, a long journey beyond the ruins Who said that you need a destination to start a journey? Sometimes the urgency to set off is stronger than the lack of prospects, sometimes the necessity to ask questions overcomes the lack of answers. Those who hesitate are lost, but those who never started walking were doomed from the beginning. In a voyage among the darkest faces of human conscience and nature, Egestas narrate a mankind in…

Review: Iena – La morte chiama (“Death calls”)

On and on, without ever stopping, oi! When a band works hard and rocks, you can feel it in the air.

Review: The Hallingtons – Hexed

Review: The Hallingtons – Hexed

Old school punkrock from Oslo On August 30th “Hexed”, the new E.P. by Norwegians The Hallingtons, was released by the oh so famous Monster Zero Records.

Those afternoons when your life flashes before your eyes, and you can’t help looking at it. You try to look away, but you’re irredeemably doomed to watch…

Review: Diamond in the Dirt – Hopeless

Review: Diamond in the Dirt – Hopeless

A sound of their own “Hopeless” is the debut EP by Diamonds In The Dirt, English HC punk/grunge band that’s been in the local music scene since late 2015. It’s an EP made up of three snappy, gritty and passionate tracks and characterized by the uniqueness of Sunny’s, guitar player/singer, vocal features, unusual for punk. The musical background on which the voice lays in every featured song doesn’t have an articulate arrangement at all and…
