Valient Himself is a man of many talents. Obviously, as the frontman of Valient Thorr, he’s a kick-ass musician. If you’re a subscriber to his awesome Rocknowledgy podcast (which we’ve told you about before), then you’ll be aware the man used to (and indeed, still is!) a damn good radio DJ. And it also turns out that’s he’s a dab hand when it comes of wielding a pen and paintbrush.

Norway is infamous for its black and death metal exports, all of which are out there setting the metal world alight with their unique brutalising sound – Blood Red Throne are no exception. Currently celebrating their 10th anniversary, Blood Red Throne are still firmly set on playing the fastest and hardest any death metal band has ever achieved. Their fifth album Souls Of Damnation is possibly their heaviest yet, and it packs one hell of a punch.

The irony of Oceano’s landlocked location of Chicago, Illinois has not gone un-noticed but the debut release from the aquatically-obsessed deathcore merchants bears no contradiction within.

When it comes to hot British bands upon whose shoulders apparently lies the weight of the world, they don’t come much hotter than Gallows. Lauded and damned in equal measure, Grey Britain is the most important record of their career.

A million words have been written, spoken, spat and shat about the Watford punk rockers signing to a major label plus other non-punk-associated endorsements as well as the relative disappointment of their debut, Orchestra Of Wolves compared to their live show. It doesn’t matter. As soon as this record came into existence, none of that mattered.

The Bronx stick an extra couple of Xs on the end of their name most times. I reckon they’re kisses because you just can’t help loving this band.

This is the third self-titled album and it explodes with riff-rolling lead single, ‘Knifeman’. It seems like Matt Caughthran still has the angry bug, reeling off diatribes about the apathetic lives that litter our youth. It’s fair.
