Adrian Pain & The Dead Sexy (Interview)

Today we chat to Adrian Pain & The Dead Sexy. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? I started using the name Adrian Pain while playing in my 1st real band after high school. ‘Adrian’ was actually in tribute to my guitarist’s dad Adrian and Pain because of my life long struggle with depression. When I was 17 my parents divorced and divided up my brother and sisters but left me to fend for myself. My then girlfriend’s dad took me in, gave me a job and opened his home to me. While working for him, I formed a band with his son Mike who was my 1st real song writing partner. He would come up with […]

for all the emptiness: mt

 

 I adore darker electronic music. There is something esoteric and primal in the use of distorted or aggressive vocals, powerful synths and brutal drumming. It’s perhaps the mixture of happy, carefree music mixed with threatening sounds of vicious technology that makes this sort of music so appealing and unappealing at the same time. This is For All The Emptiness, with their latest offering to the elder gods, “MT“. The songs on this, 5 track, album are powerful and driven, yet not insanely chaotic and savage. There is a sense of perfection and universal unity with every single piece of work on this appetite whetting album. Overall, “MT” is a brilliant album full of powerful dance-floor filling songs that will fit […]

Something Mechanical: Less Than Human

 

 There is a something to be said about good Rock music. It’s powerful. It’s moving. It’s got potential. This is something powerful, something moving, something with potential; this is Something Mechanical, with their latest offering to the gods of chaos; this is “Less Than Human“. (Once again I was unable to find a music video for the new album. So here’s an old one.) The songs on this rapid album moves from strength to strength as the sounds assault the ether. Songs like ‘Gunn‘ and ‘In Shadows‘ flow with a power that is personal and entertaining. It’s just bloody good music. Overall, “Less Than Human” is an epic little album worthy of any Rock collection.

Drums and guitars and powerful vocals spill out across the world and show the peasants the power of “real” Rock music. It’s amazing! This is OmnisighT. This is the “Power of One (EP)“.

 I adore the combination of handmade music with that of electronics. The sounds produced can cross genres in numerous ways and bring a diverse and eclectic groups of people into the bands radar.

Overall, “Hearts On Fire” is a brilliant EP that hints at the glorious future this band will have.

MiXE1: Don’t Break Apart (EP)

 

 I adore this amazing band. MiXE1 is perhaps one of the most unique bands I have ever encountered. Their style, flare and genre shifting sounds make every song a unique experience. This is their latest offering, “Don’t Break Apart“. The songs on this EP show the range this band has. The title song, ‘Don’t Break Apart‘ and ‘Meteor‘ are both amazing and driven songs that utilise the power of guitars and drums and elevate them to an art form; while the remix by Ruinizer of ‘Don’t Break Apart‘ is dancefloor filling and so unique it’s practically a different song from a different band. I like a  remix that makes a new song of the one they were meant to remix. […]

Memories In Broken Glass: Enigma Infinite

 

 Brutal and rapid sounds spill out of the speakers and dominate the surrounding areas. Even now I can see my neighbours blocking their ears in pain. It’s glorious! And yet, there is a diversity on this album that builds emotion and takes one on a journey down a myriad of diverse locations. This is Memories In Broken Glass. This is the amazing “Enigma Infinite“. The songs on this diverse, 11 track, album are threatening and extremely savage. There is an explosion of guitars, drums and vicious screaming that would please most Metal fans. Songs like ‘The Constant‘ and ‘As The Table Turns‘ are as powerful as Metal songs can be. It’s brutal and moving at the same time. Overall, “Enigma […]

Lung Flower: Effigy

 

 There is nothing like starting the morning in a moshpit. Well, okay, it’s not a moshpit, it’s the queue for the coffee shop; but within 5 minutes of this album kicking to life on my iFruit phone (+10 points if you know where that’s from -Ed), there was a moshpit -or at the least it was a coffee spill and some serious headbanging. It was Metal. This is the chaotic Lung Flower, with their latest offering to the gods, “Effigy“. The songs on this, 7 track, album are driven and aggressive. Songs like ‘Ascend‘ and ‘Everything‘ are powerful moshpit starters. It’s viking raiders sacking shopping malls in every direction. It’s epic! Overall, “Effigy” is a wonderful album full of Metal […]
