Boil – A New Decay

A NEW DECAY is the second album from Danish four-piece BOIL, who since the release of their debut album in 2007 have been carving out a pretty respectable following in their homeland and are now pushing for some success abroad. My short feelings is that band have everything needed to push into overseas markets, they have the modern alt-rock look down to a tee, the songs are interesting enough for the more discerned listener, but also have the gloss and sheen of radio-ready modern rock a-la PAPA ROACH and INCUBUS.

Keymonkey – Keymonkey

I must admit that the new album from Italy’s KEYMONKEY came across my desk a while ago now and I’ve to go back to it a few times to really get a feel for what I was hearing. Usually when I’m having trouble I like to read up about the band I’m listening to and see if I can’t get a feel for what they are doing…

Snew – We Do What We Want

I was truly surprised to discover that SNEW were not an Australian band, because their sound is a direct combination of some of the biggest Aussie acts in ACDC, ROSE TATTOO, THE ANGELS, JET and AIRBOURNE. Sure there is also a striking similarity to ACCEPT, RHINO BUCKET and JACKYL, but let’s face it, those three bands were all directly influenced by the Aussie rock sound anyway.

“Steel Mill” by Willard to be re-released in August

When you think of Willard, two words come to mind – identity crisis. You see, the band hails from Seattle, Washington – the birthplace of grunge. They emerged around 1989 – right in the middle of the 80’s – 90’s grunge movement. And to top it off, their debut album “Steel Mill” (1992) was produced by the legendary Jack Endino – the man responsible for Nirvana’s “Bleach”. And still, with everything around them screaming “grunge!”, Willard managed to deliver a sound of their own,

Votum – Metafiction

METAFICTION is my first experience with Poland based prog metallers VOTUM, and I must admit, if I hadn’t received a promo version of this album I probably would have chased this one up either. After listening to this album on repeat for a day and a half now I must say how glad I am to have turned on to these guys.
