(Please Just Dance Death)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.7 of 11
Genre: Hardcore, Punk
Sounds Like: Dillinger Escape Plan, Indian Handcrafts, Refused
When it comes to the hardcore punk scene we yearn for something a bit different and genuine. The genre is loaded with so much talent flying under the radar. Welcome IEatHeatAttacks from Norway and their first full length entitled Please Just Dance Death. This album hit a nerve and has awake... Full Review and Video Clip
Father Sky Mother Earth
(Across the River of Time)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 7.8 of 11
Genre: Drone, Doom
Sounds Like: Sun O))), Khanate
We find the drone genre rather fascinating, what makes people want to hear such repetitive heavy music. To the casual listener drone music seems to go nowhere. Yet, the more patient listener who lets the music wash over them, it can be a thing of beauty. In our experience, we love drone to be played... Full Review and Video Clip
(Beyond the Black Pyramid)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.8 of 11
Genre: Sludge rock
Sounds Like: Bongzilla, Church of Misery, Deadbird
There is a vast amount of underrated sludge bands hanging around that whole deserve your attention. TarLung from Vienna definitely fall in this category of sludge bands flying under the radar. Within the past three years, these guys have been very busy, releasing two albums and one EP, Self Titled (... Full Review and Video Clip
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.3 of 11
Genre: Psychedelic indie rock
Sounds Like: Warpaint, Beach House, Melody’s Echo Chamber
New York based Crumb throw a much needed fresh twist into the lagging indie rock genre with their second release Locket. Now this isn’t your typical indie rock album, we’re not even sure it belongs in this genre, but we need something to guide our audience. This 4 song EP is loa... Full Review and Video Clip
The Worship of Silence
(In The Early Hours)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.5 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Post metal, Stoner Doom
Sounds Like: Life of Agony, Hammers of Misfortune, Neurosis
We have been digging deep to find something like this. Something a little off the beaten path with dominant energetic vocals but maintaining that overcast vibe. Welcome The Worship of Silence hailing from Oakland California. This is the type of band where the vocals are so prominent that it will mak... Full Review and Video Clip
(Miss Universe)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 10.2 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Stoner rock
Sounds Like: Sugartooth, Roachpowder
There are many elements that make up a quality stoner rock album. What are some of the key ingredients that we look for? A rich and powerful undercurrent of bass and rhythmic sludge fretwork are essentials. Couple that with some fresh euphoric vocals that resonate and you are on the right track. Car...

Vorticle Minds
(The Orange Box)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 7.7 of 11
Genre: 70s Blues rock
Sounds Like: Cactus, Leaf Hound
We have stumbled upon 26 minutes of 70s power fuzz from the roots of Rome Italy. The trio, Vortical Minds, have released their debut entitled The Orange Box. The trio essentially hone in on the authentic. By authentic, we mean that you can put this album up against any obscure 70s blues/psy... Full Review and Video Clip
Eerie Glue
Staff Rating: Crank this to 7.7 of 11
Genre: Indie, Shoegaze
Sounds Like: The Cure, The Black Heart Procession
Eerie Glue is sticky in the sense of delivering a unique and catchy sound that is hard to shake. OK we agree, it is annoying to force the adjective in order to make a simple point. Hailing from Copenhagen Denmark the foursome have released their third EP that is loaded with catchy hooks and out of t... Full Review and Video Clip
(Graze Anatomy)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.2 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Heavy rock
Sounds Like: The Jesus Lizard, Pissed Jeans, Indian Handcrafts
The debut full length from Buffalode could be one of the most entertaining heavy rock albums to be released this year. The duo from Lincoln, UK consists of Chris Thompson (Guitar/Vocals) and Scott Nairn (Drums) and together they form a unique blend of raw heaviness. What drew is in was the offbeat a...

Dirty Sound Magnet
(Western Lies)
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.8 of 11
Genre: Creative rock
Sounds Like: Tweak Bird, These Arms Are Snakes, Black Lips
There are not enough diverse rock bands out today that break the mold and not cater to one particular genre. Dirty Sound Magnet, a trio from Switzerland has introduced us to the “Creative rock” genre, meaning that with every new song, anything is possible. After having Western Lies in ou...
