An exclusive interview with Simon Yarwood of Resin Events (and Resin), the promotor of Leicester's Uprising festival.
A live show that passed in the blink of an eye, Big Boy Bloater is a musician to treasure and you won’t be seeing him in such small venues for very much longer.
Fans of hard hitting FM-friendly rock (the most obvious influence) should give the album a spin but for those who prefer their music grittier, this should probably be avoided.
...for those who appreciate dazzling playing, heavy riffs and short, sharp blasts of melodic metal, then Rene Benton is a must.
Turn off the lights, pump the volume as loud as the neighbours will allow and lose yourself in this near-perfect album, it is an absolute triumph.
‘Everything must go’ remains a justly celebrated album, and it deserves a grand tribute. Sadly, this isn’t quite it, and we’ll no doubt see you again in 2026 for the thirtieth anniversary edition.
A rundown on the five East Midlands' finalists for Bloodstock's coveted New Blood stage as well as the latest news on Bloodstock itself.
With stunning artwork (created by singer Morten), which perfectly captures the vibe of the album and a near-perfect production job, ‘Oceans into their graves’ is an unexpectedly varied, wonderfully melodic outing that rewards repeated listens with its layered and nuanced approach to song writing.
