Frank Iero is pissed off. Not because of the demise of My Chemical Romance, but because he has a stomach-ache. An all-encompassing, inescapable stomach-ache so beastly that it inspired an entire album. To take his mind off the pain of an increasingly painful digestive disorder, Iero retreated to his basement studio and composed music that was as jagged and raw as his internal discomfort.

Remember MTV2? It used to be pretty good back in the day. Of course like most things, it rapidly went downhill and started playing the same Bowling for Soup and Sum 41 songs, but it used to be a cool place to find out about new music before the internet came along and took all the effort out of everything. Imagine finding out about a new band from the telly? Imagine telling some youth about those halcyon days, while you bounce them on your knee, sucking away on a Werther’s Original while they ignore you, their head buried in their iPad looking up gonzo happyslap violence-porn or whatever.

Whilst the metal press at large was seemingly entranced by Ihsahn’s fourth solo album Eremita, gushing flowery adjectives all over the show and proclaiming it “Album Of The Year” and such, it left some of us a bit cold. Sure, it had some nice songs with some good riffs and all that sort of stuff, but it lacked a certain something, something that’s taken until this latest release to properly place.

Maybe the slow burning classic rock jams of Down just aren’t cathartic enough for Philip. Maybe the increased vigour that he’s been displaying through Housecore Records has rekindled something deep inside one of the most metal hearts stalking our stages these days. Either way, Walk Through Exits Only is a heavy metal beast of an album.

by David Keevil

Slash carries a name, and an image, that has become synonymous with rock music; from the iconic opening blast of ‘Welcome to the Jungle’, through to his bolshy groove-ridden tenure for Velvet Revolver, this is a man who’s been an ambassador for hard rock ever since the late-80s heyday of Guns N’ Roses. It’s down to being such an enduring masthead of rock music – even if his cultural zenith peaked twenty years ago – that every new Slash record must drag the weight of his much more prosperous days behind him.

During the 12 years
 since the release of Wisconsin Death Trip, Static-X have maintained a rigid one-album-every-two-years output and, despite following an industrial-by-numbers format, their following – the Cult of Static, as referenced on their sixth album – has barely Wayned (sorry) until the band’s went on hiatus in 2009. Which is how we come to Pighammer, the debut solo album from Static-X’s leading man, Wayne Static. [Read more →]

Before we get the ball rolling it has to be said I quite like a bit of Hatebreed. I can’t say that there is a perfect album end to end, but they sure do know how to make some floor-punching, dick-shrivelling stompers that are always accompanied by chest beating choruses. ‘Straight To Your Face’, ‘Doomsayer’, ‘This Is Now’ or ‘I Will Be Heard’ all result in my car going bat shit crazy with my crew slamming one another on the back seat.  But will this debut solo record from Jamey Jasta prove that there more to the man than a head scarf and a huge gob?
