Sounds Like: Dwarves, Ty Segall, Death From Above 1979
Who’s looking for some gritty, lo-fi punk rock that sounds like Ween on a cocaine binge? You’ve come to the right spot. Take a gander at Ed Schrader’s Music Beat and their latest album Party Jail. This two-piece band consists of Ed Schrader (Vocals, Drums and lyrics), Devl... Full Review and Video Clip
Pyramids With Nadja
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.4 of 11
Genre: Ambient post-rock
Sounds Like: Flaming Lips, Jesu, Locrian
It's not often we come across ambient dominated albums that can hold our interest. Your collection probably has an ambient hole that Pyramids With Nadja can fill. The one album wonder fuses the Canadian based drone ambient band Nadja with post-rockers Pyramid. The result is a diversified four length... Full Review and Video Clip
(Dux Mea Lux)

Genre: Metal, Hard rock
Sounds Like: Last Crack, Alice Cooper, Dokken
Apparently known for their bizarre live sets and masked pagan rituals, Cretus, hailing from parts unknown, have released their first EP. While it is difficult to find a lot of information about the band, their website is chock-full of slick and high-end production.
Track one "Price of Immort... Full Review and Video Clip

(Deep Shades)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.6 of 11
Genre: Stoner rock
Sounds Like: Elder, Goatsnake, Arc of Ascent
If Glen Danzig could have intercourse with Pete Stahl of Goatsnake fame (and men could have babies) their first born would sound like the lead singer of Savanah. Formed in 2014, the Austrian threesome stick to a steady and inspiring formula. A formula of majestic stoner fuzz rock where grinding ... Full Review and Video Clip

Give it up to one of the best band names that we have encountered in a long time.  Welcome math rock enthusiasts, No Teef, hailing from Darwen, UK.

Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.5 of 11
Genre: Hardcore, Post-Hardcore
Sounds Like: Strife, The Hope Conspiracy
It can be extremely difficult to find some unusual bands in the saturated world of hardcore. Many acts today sound too similar to one another, therefore watering down a genre that we have always loved. However, when we find a fresh band that captures our attention, we jump all over it. Welcome Anima... Full Review and Video Clip
