Petrol Bastard: Terrible Problem

 

 The bastards have gone and done it again; and this time the petrol is on fire and the bastards are well into their tentacle porn. This is Petrol Bastard’s Terrible Problem. https://soundcloud.com/petrolbastard/09-if-you-die-in-batley-do-you Tracks like ‘Fly A plane Into A Londis’ and ‘Fred Foster’ are the essence of what this band is about -all vernacular knob dancing with fire and beer in a flaming ASDA on the Yorkshire moors.  It’s antagonistic pride made flesh. Overall ‘Terrible Problem‘ is another assault on the senses bought to you by the best bastards in North England. Visit the official website and Bandcamp for more information.

Junkyard Lipstick

Today we continue our support of locally born Metal with an interview with Junkyard Lipstick. Now you’ve only been around a few years. How did Junkyard Lipstick start? The band started out initially as a punk band between a bunch of friends in April 2011. With every line up change our sound has evolved, and grown to what it is now – thrash metal! Where did you get the name? We didn’t really have great ideas for band names when we started – they were all horrible. “Children of Chernobyl” was one of the options LOL. But we knew that we wanted something feminine yet bad ass & rough. Our drummer was listening to a lot of Juliette and the […]

Juno Reactor: The Golden Sun… Remixed

 

 They have gone and done it again. Juno Reactor have kicked in the basement door of your heart and assaulted your furniture, technology and soul with their unique brand of powerful, yet emotional music. The Golden Sun Of The Great East, their latest album, blew the doors off of the house. So imagine my joy when I was sent the remix album… The Golden Sun… Remixed, takes what the main album did and then kicks it in the teeth as a plethora of creative remixes, sounds, styles and experimental dance moves explode in every direction. [youtube id=”rlLEqf9fPhY” width=”600″ height=”350″] The tracks on this amazing, 10 track, album are as diverse and unique as the bands that remixed them and the […]

My Columbine

Now you’ve only been around a few years. How did My Columbine start? We basically started up when Ray (our previous vocalist) and Wimpie gave Ryan (Former Guitarist) and Sven a call to say “We have Drums and Vocals, we need Guitar and Bass – Let’s Jam” so we did and the sound was great. Since then, we have built up a lineup of musicians that I am damn proud to call my band mates. Where did you get the name? It started out as a song (one of our first). It was politically driven lyrically and the idea behind the song (and now our name) is to get all the anger/frustration/aggression that you have inside of you out with […]

Spectral Realm

Another day. Another amazing band. Now you’ve only been around a few years. How did Spectral Realm start? The idea started in 2006, as a solo project by Ryno “Lord Onyr” Rabe. Being inspired by bands like Emperor, Satyricon, Dissection, Old Man’s Child etc., we create a blend of extreme and atmospheric music. Thus, in 2010, a full band was formed. As a full unit, we played our first show in 2011. Where did you get the name? The name was inspired by a video game called Soul Reaver. However, it was used in our own way, creating our own world through music and lyrics. (Classic game. -Ed) What genre of music do you consider Spectral Realm to be? Symphonic black metal mixed […]

Carnage Carnival: Carnage Carnival

 

 It starts off with a fury that reminds me of demons swarming out of the gaping maw of Hell. This is Carnage Carnival’s latest album aptly named Carnage Carnival. The songs on this antagonistic, 8 track album advance relentlessly as pounding Metal assaults every inch of your soul. Songs like Nightmare and ‘he Hunt are the epitome of Metal and the essence of unbridled passion. Overall, Carnage Carnival is a decent metal album full of power and aggression. If you like your music hard then this is for you. The album is available on Bandcamp.
