A lot of people are going to give Outcry Collective a lot of shit for being late to the “Every Time I Die are great” party but with their debut album, a r t i c l e s, the Brits have shown there’s more to them than just Kentucky Fried Hardcore.

As debut albums go, this ain’t a bad one. Some are barnstorming, prophetic visions of what music should be, whilst some meekly near their heads before sneaking back into muggy obscurity. This album by Bristol’s Evita rests snugly somewhere in the middle; it’s a bit like the Anthony Worrall Thompson of metal.

Now, I’m not one for exaggeration so you can take this as gospel truth; this emission by a three-piece out of Hollywood, California will be by some considerable margin the most unique sound you’ll hear anytime soon.

This month sees the release of yet another eponymous offering from Canadian punk rock outfit Billy Talent. No seriously, they’re still going. That band from college with the guy who’s got a bit of a weird voice and songs that all sound pretty much the same? Yeah, the ones you pretended not to like but secretly did. Them.

Remember that pair of trainers you bought years ago? The ones that you’ve worn irrespective of the occasion, the weather and the ever -fickle finger of fashion? The ones that just feel so comfortable when you slip them on that it doesn’t really matter that they’re a little past their prime? Killswitch Engage are those trainers – in a metaphorical sense at least.

Few artists nowadays release enough material for five albums, even fewer release enough for five albums in six years while working on multiple side-projects – Omar Rodriguez-Lopez has so many fingers in so many pies we think he’s got a couple of spare arms hidden away somewhere, would also explain his enviable propensity to be outrageously good on the guitar.

The Mars Volta’s Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez are two such artists. The brains behind the sorely missed, hugely influential late 1990’s post-hardcore of At The Drive-In, they left to form prog outfit The Mars Volta in 2001 and have since gone on to produce some of the most awe-inspiring, enthusing and simultaneously impenetrable, self-indulgent music in existence.

When looking at their credentials, Man Raze sound like what could be a ‘mini supergroup’. The band are Phil Collen (vocals/guitar) who currently plays guitar in legendary rock outfit Def Leppard, Paul Cook (drums) who is founder member and former drummer of the Sex Pistols and finally Simon Laffy (bass) who has been a long time friend of Collen and a member of Collen’s pre-Def Leppard band Girl.

Few bands today are able to call themselves legends and still be on tour. Some have given us all they could 10 or so years ago and then faded away in obscurity, but some have kept rocking for the past 30 years; Def Leppard are one of those bands. Having played to millions of fans worldwide, Def Leppard are widely regarded as one of the best New Wave of British Heavy Metal bands.
