Intensive Square – “ANYTHING THAT MOVES” Review

I know that my links to reviews on other websites don’t seem to get viewed much, but this time I urge anyone who sees this to check out my review of Wales’ own Intensive Square’s debut album “Anything That Moves” here. This album has been a long time coming and fully deserves your attention and ears when it comes out on the 29th June, via Black Bow Records. The thing is an absolute monster in the tech metal realm. Plus, you can’t go wrong with some Zorn-esque sax too.

Feastem / Oblivionized Live Review (Le Pub, Newport. 13/6/13)

Wales is lucky to be graced with great gigs with most bands settling for Bristol as the most Western point of a UK tour; however (and luckily) this wasn’t the case for the Feastem/Oblivionized UK tour. Feastem, travelling all the way from Finland, and Oblivionized from London set Newport’s loveable Le Pub as their Welsh date and ended up being well worth the travel from South-West Wales, despite travelling/accommodation expenses being 12x the £5 door price!

If You’re Going To… BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2012

The eighth Bloodstock Open Air festival will be wreaking havoc this coming weekend, from the 9th-12th, unleashing metal to the masses in Derbyshire! The festival boasts blackened death metal monsters Behemoth, groove metal veterans Machine Head and the legendary shock rocker Alice Cooper as mainstage headliners – as well as a hundred more variations of metal acts spread across four stages and four days (instead of the ‘norm’ of three days). The festival appeals to a wide variety sub-genres in metal, generally covering the death/thrash/black/folk/sludge/heavy metal areas. So Bloodstock should appeal to anyone who is looking for an intense degree of metal. Continue reading
