Music and various genres rise and fall and strong bands and genres also come back into fashion at some stage and with an album such as ‘Genexus’ this should bring Fear Factory back into the spotlight. – By Gary Jackson
Motherfucker are a serious force to be reckoned with. Hopefully they won’t be held back in any way cause from the name to the album these ladies rock. – By Gary Jackson
So all in all this is a really solid debut ep and hopefully you will give it sometime and don’t fall into the same trap that I almost did. Look over any sort of press comments and just put the damn thing on play and let yourself be the Judge and Jury. This is one ep you won’t regret listenin’ to. By Gary Jackson
Apart from 7 mins or so of the very last track this is a fresh sounding record with no airs or graces all done in the Melvins way. Buy it, spin it and enjoy it. You won’t regret it! – By Gary Jackson
This is a great heavy album that when listened to at volume gets the room, in fact, the whole building shaking to the beats. – By Gary Jackson
Gary Jackson talks to Wil Castel of French rock band Duck Explosion about exploding plastic ducks and other things.
Do not let the name fool you, just press play and you’ll see what a great EP this is. – By Gary Jackson
The Dream Calls For Blood, simply put is just a great album that proves that the guys still have it and in my eyes still deserve a top place in the league of thrash. – By Gary Jackson
This album is some of the best shit I’ve heard all year. – By Gary Jackson
I really enjoyed this EP and can’t wait to hear more, hopefully with a bigger drum sound. Inspiring stuff from the bedroom for your pleasure. By Gary Jackson
The Answer have done themselves proud with New Horizon and I’m sure this will lift them up to the levels that they deserve. – By Gary Jackson
If I like an album, I’ll tell you. If I really like an album I’ll tell you again. So consider yourself told and told again, but don’t just take my word for it, get the beautiful creation that is Talon of the Hawk, some of the songs will make you laugh and some will make you cry, but you really won’t be disappointed.

Young Fathers are a band that I could imagine closing massive festivals with 80,000 people singing along to ‘Come To Life’. Tape Two is the finest thing to come out of Edinburgh since Trainspotting. By Gary Jackson
These guys deliver a powerful album loaded with great big slow heavy riffs all wrapped in a psychedelic jam packed goodness. – By Gary Jackson
Seneron has potential, but they played a little bit too safe on this EP release. – By Gary Jackson
I recommend getting the earphones on and take a ride on the tube or bus through the city and watch people go about their daily routines with Chaotic Love Stories and Irrational Behaviour playing as the soundtrack it will definitely improve your journey and invoke and provoke your mind with a different ending movie every day and Those Amongst Us Are Wolves are required listening for this very reason. By Gary Jackson
All in all Angst & Spiders is a good 3 track EP from a great young band that deserves a listen and leaves me wanting to hear more. – By Gary Jackson.
PeopleMadeOfPaper by Dirt Box Disco is an album that Billy Joe Armstrong wishes he could write instead of those “punk” opera type deals that he insists on spewing out for my granddad. – By Gary Jackson.
The first thing I noticed in the Press Release was “Stoner Thrash” and immediately I was intrigued by this oxymoron. One style is a slow groove and the other extreme speeds and manic riffing. So I was more than a little curious to see how Face Down who hail from Paris (well 4 of them do, with an Englishman from Spain on vocals) would pull this off on their debut album The Long Lost Future.
