Death by Ki

DEATH BY KI RELEASE NEW VIDEO NOW…..

 
Bursting out of Bridgwater, Somerset, newcomers Death By Ki bond together a formidable sound, lifting from the rampant power of Slayer and Lamb Of God and the old school riffery of Metallica. The South West road warriors, comprised of Josh Ayerst (Guitars and lead vocals), Chris Chamberlain (Guitars and backing vocals), Will Robins (Bass and backing vocals), and Nick Cope (Drums), pack together a heady blend of pummelling hooks laced with Slayer-esque vocals, set with layered riffage, and complemented by sturdy bass and rock solid beats.
Death By Ki now release debut EP, ‘The Right Of Might’, which immediately lunges forward with stunning pace, spewing out frantic drumming and hi-octane riffs to striking effect. Ramming five songs of intensely contagious vocal lines, a burly rhythm section, and high paced Kirk Hammett-esque licks, the band have produced a blazing and potent slice of modern metal.
The South west metalheads have also just unveiled new video single ‘Control (In A World Of Free Will)’ and you can check it our right here at – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BdcIfXONHE&feature=youtu.be

SPANKING DEBUT EP UNLEASHED BY UK TUNESTERS LAST TRANSMISSION THIS SUMMER!

Northern newcomers, Last Transmission, release their stunning new EP ‘All The Time In The World’, out Monday 17th June through all digital outlets.
Deliciously pooling together highly alluring melodic tunes backed with thoughtfully paced riffs, UK rocksters Last Transmission are set to be one of the breakthrough bands of the year!
 
Hailing from Newcastle Upon Tyne and formed at the foot of 2012, Last Transmission were brought together by a mutual affection for Foo Fighters, Manic Street Preachers, and Jimmy Eat World.  Consisting of Michael Blackwell (Vocals/Guitar), Danny Pitson (Bass), Richie Davies (Guitar), and Adam Forster (drums), Last Transmission are here to make new friends and fans throughout the nation, and they have the perfect snare in the shape of their new EP.

From the anthemic and deliciously tuneful opener ‘All You Left Behind’, to the melodic beatings of ‘Anything To Anyone’, and the stalwart craftsmanship of ‘Mess You Make’ and ‘24’, through to the vigour and hooky refrain of ‘Separate Ways’, ‘All The Time In The World’  is set to send the band into orbit!

WHERE THE SKELETONS PLAY to unveil ‘Serotonin Blueprints’, out 27th May‏

Where The Skeleton's Play Online Promo Shot
HOTLY TIPPED SKEWED DUO WHERE THE SKELETONS PLAY RETURN WITH STUNNING NEW RECORD!
 
“It would be easy to write this off as Deftones-worship. But, while the Sacramento five-piece experiment to avoid, or mask, stagnation, WTSP use experimentation as a means to reinforce already solid and interesting foundations.” 10/10 Metal Discovery
 
Sounding like a hybrid of the gritty messed-up grooves of Deftones bred with the spawn of Tool, under the cunning orchestration of Trent Reznor, Where The Skeletons Play return and are poised to move through the ranks of the UK scene with their explosive new record ‘Serotonin Blueprints’, out 27th May 2013.
Born in 2011 as a purely studio-based project, Where The Skeletons Play are the innovation of Stitch (Vocals) and Bones (Instrumentation). As they pull from a span of notable influences ranging from the likes of Pelican, Deftones, and Tool, through to Nine Inch Nails, Where The Skeletons Play can be broadly labelled as ambient Hard Rock. However, the dynamic duo undeniably manage to carve their very own indelible mark on proceedings. As you sink into the woven texturing of the band, you’ll soon discover that they are set well apart from their contemporary counterparts. Progressive, yet accessible, the band have fastidiously crafted a sound that is imaginative, while harnessing their genuine ability to write a killer tune.
Since their formation, Where The Skeletons Play have had a steady output of strong material. The mysterious two-some released their debut EP ‘Generation Wars’ in the Summer of 2012 and it soon garnered strong praise and notoriety from fans and many sectors of the underground press for its unique brand of Off-Kilter Hard Rock. And now, the wirey upstarts are armed with their exciting new six-track EP ‘Serotonin Blueprints’, which swerves and pulls the listener right from the off. The record is stacked with inventive riffs, intriguing time-signatures, ambient guitar tapestries, and hooky melodies that will leave you craving for more. With further tracks waiting in the wings, it’s apparent that WTSP are destined for great things. So, look out –- Where The Skeletons Play are only just getting started.

HI-TEMPO UK ROCK COMBO  REAPER IN SICILY ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM!

 
Fast moving Brit tunesters “Reaper In Sicily” continue their rise with the launch of their new album ‘Islands’, out Monday 10th June through all national outlets.
 
Packing together the infectious wizardry and guile of The Used and Kids In Glass Houses fused with the muscular vigour of Rise Against, Reaper In Sicily have produced a sound that will blow your face right off. The South Wales riff beasts are equipped with the tools to ensure that they will explode this year!
 
Formed in 2009, soon after introducing themselves to the scene Reaper in Sicily won best unsigned live act by Kerrang! Magazine. The self-proclaimed ‘Power pop’ five-some then went on to sign a record deal with Search and Destroy Records and Raw Power Management. The band’s first single ‘We Are The Show’ received widespread rotation on TV screens throughout the nation, and the record received extensive critical acclaim, including radio airplay on BBC Radio One.
 
Sadly though, in March 2010, Matthew Jenkins (guitarist) was diagnosed with leukaemia, and the band were instantly placed on a hiatus until the guitarist was well enough to play again. Reaper returned later that year and promptly released two new EPs, appeared at both the Reading and Leeds festivals, and clinched support slots for everyone from Kids In Glass Houses, The Subways, Max Raptor, Attack! Attack!, Mallory Knox, Hawthorne Heights, Fightstar, The Xcerts, Straight Lines, I Spy Strangers and Evarosa, to Hildamay, and many many more.
Now armed with their explosive debut album ‘Islands’, which was recorded by Romesh Dodangoda (Funeral For A Friend & Kids In Glass Houses), the highly-rated five-piece are set to stamp their name firmly on the scene. The album is a prominent piece of modern high energy rock. From its captivating opener ‘50’, to the aptly titled ‘Chuck Norris Got A Chainsaw’ which grabs a hold of your particulars, through to their new video single ‘Horizons’, and onwards to the majestic title track ‘Islands’, the band have sculptured a record that lavishes pounding riffery, soaring melodies, and earnest energy to the listener. With a full UK tour sketched out for the early part of the summer, the band are poised and ready for dizzy heights!

OUR FINAL HOUR to release ‘The Moving House’, on 24th June‏

Our Final Hour Online Promo Shot

our final hour to unleash their bonecrushing new EP

 
Hailing from the shores of the Isle of Man, the industrious five-some draw from a glut of areas from the power of ‘Defeater’ to the ferocious energy of ‘Stick To Your Guns’ and ‘Pianos Become Teeth’. By harnessing these influences, yet unmistakably etching their own unique signature on their undertaking, the band have produced a sound that intelligently merges Hardcore, Metal, and Punk to powerful effect
The beginnings of the band were formed in 2008, and as is the case with many musicians, the pathway to the upper ranks of the music scene was not a smooth one. The band’s route has had its fair share of broken friendships, musical differences, line-up changes, and also a slew of financial difficulties. However, after a progressive five years, the resilient quintet have solidified personnel, relentlessly toured throughout the UK & Europe, and have built an impressive underground following by releasing two blistering EPs.
Our Final Hour now charge forward with the official release of their third EP ‘The Moving House’. Spitting out six tracks of venomous hardcore, the EP is laden with brawly riffs and enticing beats, and is driven by ferocious passion and true belief. From the visceral guitar swirls and pounding riffage of the opener ‘Four Years’ to the infectiously stomping beatings of their forthcoming video single ‘Autumn Breeze’, and on to the dynamic and snarling grit of ‘#LSBC’, it’s abundantly clear that Our Final Hour are extremely well drilled in the art of delivering a hell of a biting hardcore tune. This is backed even more so with the closing tracks to the EP where ‘Evergreen’ takes the listener down a weaving doom-laden corridor to hell and back, before the EP’s namesake, ‘The Moving House’, completes the record majestically with its stocky beats and atmospheric guile, not to mention, it’s colossal refrain.
