[REVIEW] Belgium based progressive-rock band RAKETKANON – RKTKN#3

The experimental and progressive rock group, Raketkanon are releasing their upcoming album, RKTKN#3 this April via Alcopop! Records. Hailing from Ghent, Belgium, Raketkanon are pushing boundaries within the scene, creating soundscapes and ambience alongside experimental approaches to a distorted-style guitar method. In a complete twist, Raketkanon include an invented language, adding mystery and intrigue to their music. RKTKN#3 brings a dark progression in their rock career, and with influences such as Tomahawk, Melvin and Thorns, Raketkanon makes experimental melodic, catchy and rife with synth.

The nine-track long album features some of their most empirical material yet. Momentarily caught up in a classic style of rock, into a dropped bass line distorted combatively, ‘Ricky’ opens the album with offense. Played like rolling waves, fluctuating fluently between chords, the developmental track captures their melodic and cadenced tempo in an alluring mixture of rock and roll and industrial.

‘Fons’ brings a metal-meets-industrial, accompanied by oscillated vocals, moving in tempo. Speaking about the album, vocalist Peter-Paul Devos says: “We don’t want to be just a metal band, or a hard-Rock band, we just want to make music that we think is beautiful and sincere. I think we managed to realise that on this project.” The interpretation approach of music has well and truly worked for Raketkanon on this album as they explore their instruments to their full potential, combining them in unorthodox ways to create a track that works so well bound together. ‘Melody’ is a perfect example of their enriching inspiration, perched upon a andante flow. Explaining the methodology behind their fictional dialect, Devos says: “but even with songs that have real lyrics, if you explain them it removes their power. If you limit that power I think it’s a shame for the listener, and you’re taking something away from them. Our music is more about the instinctive emotion that you feel when you listen to it.”

Encapsulating the beauty behind the interpretation, the next track ‘Hannibal’ translates machinery in a dystopian visage of anarchy. Plucking from adagietto-esque bridges, it flexes it’s punk muscles featuring cacophonous vocals. The album is barely linear, shifting in unconnected rhythm and sound. The unpredictability of the album offers a multitude of experiences with each track. Passing the midway point of RKTKN#3 it shifts into rhythmic rendition, with clean guitar picking and moving into darker avenues using slight changes of notes. As well as ‘Robin,’ sixth track ‘Lou’ starts slower in speed. The synthesizer truly takes the spotlight, adding ambience to reverberating basslines, moving the track into a combative state of distortion and unrelenting screams.

‘Harry’ brings along a fast-paced futuristic punk impression, using digitalized vocals to really push the boat out there. “Over the years, Lobe [Vlaeminck, synths] has explored the world of his instrument a lot more. The thing with the synthesizer as an instrument is that it has so many possibilities – if you play it right you can make a lot of amazing and magical things happen sonically.”

‘Ernest’ holds a much more classic feel, that of a Rob Zombie soundtrack of industrial rhythm. Wrapping up the album, Raketkanon fuels their melodic talents layering harmonic vocals atop the raucous drumming of Wilde, that really brings this album together. While the bass and synthesizer add to their progressive sound massively, the spotlight of the album well and truly gleams over the talent of drumming that’s visible in RKTKN#3. Closing with ‘Mido,’ Raketkanon ends this chapter in a perfectly sheathed soundscape.

RKTKN#3 is due for release on April 5th and will be available across streaming services. The band will also be hitting the UK to tour in May, bringing their enticing experience along with them.

RCKLSS reveal video for EVERY TIME following SO CYNICAL EP release

Hailing from Brighton and formed of four members, RCKLSS is the new pop rock band to hit the scene, combining their efforts into being the new go-to band for light-hearted, heavy pop. Previously going by the name Reckless Intentions, the band toured relentlessly with their first EP ‘Lights’ under their belt. The touring efforts and expanding talent lead the guys to changed the band name to RCKLSS and have since left their past creations behind to focus on their growth with newly-inspired RCKLESS. Being described as enticing, playful and progressive, RCKLSS are ones to keep an eye on, especially with the newly released EP So Cynical.

Since the release of RCKLSS’s debut EP, the band have released a video for their single, ‘Every Time.’ The track combines the heavy influence of rock with melodic pop undertones, moving in fluent rhythm along with harmonised vocals. The young talent brings a catchy and tongue-and-cheek lyrics that truly stay ingrained in your mind well after listening. Following a happy-go-lucky video, the track promotes movement in it’s hearty bass and fluctuating power chords, much like their influences of All Time Low and Pierce The Veil. Front man Graeme Costello explains “‘Every Time’ is a song about contrasting the degradation of a relationship against the carefree times, and wanting to move onto something new and less toxic.”

RCKLSS released their debut EP So Cynical last week but are not short of unreleased material. With the video for ‘Every Time’ being the latest addition to their portfolio as a band, RCKLSS are full of plans to expand and grow within the scene over the next few months.

FALL FLAVORED ‘180’ Review

fallflavouredHailing from Lile in France, Fall Flavored are a mixture of some of the biggest influences in the punk rock industry, exploring each element that really brought the genre to light, offering a fresh modern twist on their music in an ingenious display of their musical talents.

‘Epic & Colegram’ comes with a mass of power behind the volume guitars and a thunder of rhythmic drumming that really binds the track together. The melodic value of the track is something special, promoting movement and giving the song that infectious nature – although Fall Flavored displays their talents in a variety of areas, with hints of heavy breakdowns and a weighty bassline that takes melodic into fist pumping. With fluctuating vocal ranges, the song moves fluently through nuanced tempo, and as it moves into ‘Mountain Of Rage’, Fall Flavored are more than just a one-trick pony. Demonstrating their influences through their instrumental usages, Mountain Of Rage really shows a correlation to progressive rock band Billy Talent, taking on more of a modern twang although really pushing the short and choppy breaks. One thing to note about Fall Flavoured is their ability to move the tracks in diverse directions.

With this album, we didn’t want to put frontiers or barriers to our compositions. We wanted to explore multiple registers of music at the same time, but without denying our punk rock legacy

‘Nonsense’ takes the punch into atmospheric, lead solely by the use of harmonic guitar work, showing keen control over the frets. Much like the previous, ‘Character in a Role Play’ is another boundary-pushing track, combining elements that can be seen in various genres. Being a sort of ‘ultimate-track’ of sorts, the style of Billy Talent is almost mixed with a Cradle Of Filth-esque style as it takes on a darker, eerie tone underneath the distinct feminine vocals. Fall Flavored have definitely grounded themselves solidly in the industry with such a distinguished sound currently unique and untouched within the scene.


The mismatched sound of ‘Runaway’ is charming with climbing power-chords, taking on a party-style sound of contrasting voices bouncing off each other. Heavily dependant on the bass keeping the track in rhythm, it takes 108 in a completely different direction and adhering to almost a different nature. This style runs through into the next track, with quick movement promoting muted chords. ‘Sleep’ is far different than what the title might suggest unless you’re an insomniac, with short bursts of energy instrumentally in sync throughout. ‘Can’t Be Beaten’ returns the band to their full state of punk rock with heavy hitting drums, although this time the vocal range takes the spotlight as the frequency fluctuates throughout, contrasting each verse. 180 is an album to be enjoyed throughout, with no one track similar to the last, spinning an unpredictable edge. ‘Stuck In Life’ emphasises their melodic sound with instruments fully complementing each other, while ‘Courtesy Of Boris’ displays their diversity with quick, pugnacious drumming really throwing out that attitude of the band. Final song, ‘Jump’ is their last display of talent, combining each element that’s played well for them. It’s the most infectious of the album, really sticking in the mind and standing out as one of their best – although each track from 180 really has it’s own appeal.

[REVIEW] Scream Blue Murder ‘Hollow Stories’

Coventry based four-piece, Scream Blue Murder released their debut album Hollow Stories in 2016, starting the band on the right foot where they continue to grow in the industry. The full length, ten-track album is a display of the band’s energy for atmospheric, enticing music. First track, ‘Unbreakable’ shares the importance and talent for each instrument in slow rendition but introduces the band in such a heavy impact way. With a plethora of influences from bands such as Bring Me The Horizon, Parkway Drive, Asking Alexandria and Cancer Bats, the four-piece have truly come together to combine their interests and efforts into one epic metal-rendition.
27657519_1660006100709909_2528635643748235799_nWith ‘Restart, Rewind, Reset,’ heavy from the get-go, the heavy bass and distorted guitars come to life. One of the most stand-out elements of Scream Blue Murder is their modern twang on the metal genre, as the track moves in and out of heavy, combative attitude into anthemic. The tumultuous relationship between the instruments and the way they ricochet off each other in such a dynamic way gives a surge of power to each track. ‘No Hope,’ for example is a charming track that’s almost magnetic, and definitely a favourite of the album. With heavy riffs and an impressive display of fret and string control, the underlying accent of a porcine-like bass, the third-track is Scream Blue Murder’s ingenuity and talent when it comes to songwriting. As it moves forth into ‘Escape Plan,’ the band’s passion intensifies massively, where breakdowns become even more epic and their songs fluctuate in frequencies. It’s a must to mention and give kudos to drummer Jamie Bloomer for his pugnacious drums that brings much of the weight to each track on the Hollow Stories album.

‘We Are Survivors’ takes a slightly different approach to its predecessors, offering a very surreal atmosphere in a very visual manner. It’s like envisioning the band in their surroundings as the intro ceases into the song – and the track becomes the most infectious of the album. With very anthemic potential as the echoed vocals sing the words ‘we are survivors, we will survive,’ the fifth track nearly steals the show. While the song runs at just short of three and a half minutes, it’s a very moreish track but their subtle change in tone for the halfway mark of the album continues into ‘Dying Breed,’ where the hypnagogic atmosphere laces through the instruments. Being the most authentic metal track on the album, ‘Dying Breed’ brings the essence of nostalgia to their music, rejoicing and enforcing their influences of bands such as Suicide Silence and pre-That’s The Spirit BMTH.
But the talent and exploration of Scream Blue Murder go further than their turbulence, as ‘Let’s Do Coke… I’ll Have A Diet’ proves. Combining their metal genre with the like of party anthems, ‘Let’s Do Coke…’ is like the band’s way of rebelling against the usual rules surrounding the metal genre. It’s definitely boundary pushing, but it works well, taking headbanging into finger guns with eminent use of breakdowns to combine them. ‘Personal Message,’ is colossal in sound, bringing the sheer strength and power of vocalist Aaron Bloomer to the forefront. The militant vocals add to the overall attitude of the song, channelling the aggressive energy that makes it truculent. Second to last track ‘Flatline’ is brilliant. Using clean vocals to compliment the bellicose, the track falls together perfectly in timing and highlights the potential that Scream Blue Murder has in various areas. Last song, ‘Hollow Stories’ is practically like the conclusion to the album, combining each of the stand-out points that each track holds to create the ultimate track, and is a such a concise, wholesome ending to the album. Hollow Stories is an epic album written by Scream Blue Murder, promoting how exciting it is for metal fans to be following the band at this time.

Layover announce YOUR LAUGHTER NEVER LEAVES & release lead-single SLUMBER.

 

layover

Emo punks Layover announced their return yesterday with Your Laughter Never Leaves EP due out on the 4th of May this year via Fox Records. Since their hiatus in 2016, Layover started writing again in 2017 which sparked the inspiration to work on a new record. Talking about their upcoming record, vocalist Luke Rainsford says: “The sound of our old music does not represent us, and we have matured as musicians and people since then. We come with a new direction to start in a genre we are more passionate about.” The quartet have been working on Your Laughter Never Leaves with Ian Sadler at Emeline Studios, while mastering their collection with Grant Berry at Fader. The EP, addressing issues such as mental health and loss in a genuine, sensitive way is a five-track EP that really show the maturity of Layover since their previous releases.

But, not only did Layover announce their upcoming EP, but also released their lead single ‘Slumber’ that’s available to stream on YouTube now.

‘Slumber’ is an emo anthem mixed with the heart of pop-punk, and a sure display of maturity for the quartet in Layover. Combined with clean and gritty sounds, ‘Slumber’ comes to life as it’s own.

Your Laughter Never Leaves is available for pre-order via Fox Records BandCamp here.

itoldyouiwouldeatyou announce ‘Get Terrified’ EP set for April!

itoldyouiwouldeatyou2

London based septet, itoldyouiwouldeatyou, are back after a short hiatus with new music on the horizon that’s already surrounding them with excitement. Their previous success came from their 2016 release of I Am Not Your Fault. The band grew loyal fans and followers within their local scene, and now they’re growing even bigger, focusing on building a like-minded community of fans. Their most recent lead-single release, ‘Get Terrified’ brings the band back into action with a tremendous punch, combining their indie-punk ways in such a spectacular way. The video, set in an American-style party of red punch cups and end of semester energy, itoldyouiwouldeatyou display their sash’s around their bodies displaying hidden traits to each character.

Directed by Chevy Blazer and produced by a queer art group, Clumsy Bodies that the band have been friends with for a long time, Joey Ashworth says that the video was shot around New Cross where they and bassist Ollie live. “We filmed most of the dance scenes at New Cross House, a pub we generally use when we don’t have wifi. They were really lovely and helped us out at the last minute when our previous choice of venue dropped out!” 

The voice of Joey Ashworth is calming, as they hit their notes in sync with the music that complements their voice throughout. With such a mixture of instruments in the song, it’s impressively organised as each instrument bounces off each other creating such a calming sensational listen, until the sounds become louder and the music becomes more mismatched. One of the most notable things about itoldyouiwouldeatyou is the way that the band have still managed to make dysfunctional, off-beat rhythms sound completely in place. ‘Get Terrified’ is a brilliant track to open the gates and announce their upcoming EP titled Get Terrified, showing off their originality and diversity with fluctuating tempos.

itoldyouiwouldeatyou

Talking about the video, Joey Ashworth continues to say: “The world around us is trying to make us forget how to look after each other. It is trying to turn the young against themselves and to co-opt the old. It tells the working class that solidarity doesn’t work anymore, and tells minorities that they are on their own. It relies on cynicism. I am angry, but I am not and will never be cynical. So take the feelings and memories that make you up, realise that they and you are a product of your environment, and change it.  Get Terrified is about coming home. Realising the answer was here the whole time, and trying your hardest to love – through anger, through disruption and through solidarity. Get terrified, get angry, and scream love until your throat bleeds. We are coming home together.”

 

Get Terrified is set to be released April 20th via Alcopops! Records x Failure By Design Records and the EP will feature a discography of the bands physically-unreleased previous singles to date alongside brand new material. Available for pre-order now from their BandCamp page.

ITYIWEY currently have these live dates lined up:

ONLY STRANGERS Self-Titled EP

Only Strangers SELFTITLED

Newcastle Upon Lyme pop-punkers, Only Strangers have recently released their self-titled EP last month along with launch shows in Stoke this month in March. With gigs lined up for the year, Only Strangers are hitting new levels with their thunderous take on the pop-punk genre. With combative vocals and heavy, distorted riffs, Only Strangers are yet again on the rise as they further their adventure into the industry. Forming in 2010, the momentum of the band has only been on the up as they featured in the Punk As Duck Vol.1 compilation by Horn And Hoof Records, and with two EP’s under their belt, Only Strangers are chartering their sound piece-by-piece.#

The ten track album is fierce by nature, never lacking the passion they start out with courageous displays of energy and determination. Starting with first track ‘Last Time,’ Only Strangers are quick to show off their chemistry as a band with pounding guitar and brilliantly thunderous drums. One of the first things that jump out at you about Only Strangers is their distinctive vocals that don’t once fair – it’s a very charming style that matches their instrumentals. As the EP moves forward into the second track, ‘So Long, Etruria,’ the vocals become cleaner and the guitar becomes more melodic, still with that cadenced drumming complemented by a depth of bass. It’s quickly noted that Only Strangers have a lot of talent, and this unpredictable EP is an impressive display of each element that creates their idiosyncratic sound.

The production of their self-titled EP is remarkable, with each instrument really bringing the song alive and never once out-shining each other. ‘What Happened To You,’ is an example of their balanced choices, with each component bouncing off of each other to create the buzz surrounding their music. Although, one of their most stand-out tracks is ‘Never Wanted This’ with the fluctuating frequencies that play like a story. Starting slow, the band really work up the chorus in an epic kind of reveal. As mentioned previously, not once through the EP does Only Strangers lack in energy. Each song bounces and represents Only Strangers wholeheartedly. ‘Saturday Night’ furthers the EP into the mid-point, and keeps the very light-hearted sound along with a heavier undertone that Only Strangers carry well into the second-half of the EP. ‘Counter Attack’ takes a different tone, somewhat darker in nature, but with powerful chords carrying the track along with a deep bassline, Only Strangers brilliantly deliver this other side that’s being displayed. Only Strangers has really fallen into place within their genre, creating original work that’s infectious in sound. They really stick with you, and their masses of energy are enough to move you.

OnlyStrangers_preview

‘Anyway, We Delivered The Bomb’ brings Only Strangers back to their distorted guitar works and symbol bashing percussion drumming. It’s one of the most memorable tracks off the album, where the vocals become a lot more combative and bring the band well-and-truly into their own. Armed with their instruments, Only Strangers have succeeded in bringing their creative imaginations to life in such an ingenious way. Coming to the end of the self-titled EP by Only Strangers, the band really combine their works in their entirety to bring their sound to the forefront. ‘Creature’ is definitely one of their most interesting tracks, bringing their punk-esque sound into focus, almost as if we’re hearing a modern Misfits come to life. While the track is a little under three minutes, it doesn’t lack in punch with their melodic and synchronised guitars that carry into last track, ‘Hardest Thing.’ It’s almost sad to see the back of the EP as the first notes chime of their final track, although it’s a belter. Really giving time for listeners to take in the sound of the instruments we’ve come to enjoy, Only Strangers rides fluidity for their final track, making it such an exciting ending to a brilliantly thought-out and produced EP.

The EP is now available for purchase via Horn and Hoof by clicking here.

DEARIST release music video for ‘Drowning.’

Wolverhampton quintet Dearist have just released a video single for their latest track ‘Drowning.’ Taken from their upcoming second album Sonder, Dearist have spent the last year booking their upcoming shows and hard at work bringing Sonder to life. Being compared to the likes of Taking Back Sunday and Thursday, Dearist has found their place in the industry by filling the niche of an alternative emo genre – a sound we haven’t really had since the early 2000’s when power chords and party lifestyles came out in force.

‘Drowning’ is a good looking piece of video work, displaying the band and setting the tone of the track. Faded in colour and eerie in atmosphere, Dearist have managed to really focus their energy on bringing the track to life in more than just the music. Filled with recorded performances and giving life to the band, ‘Drowning’ is a video for interpretation. One of the most stand out things about the video release along with the track is the lyric “drowning in my own skin” while the woman wears a mask and eventually breaks down – offering a sense of insecurity. There’s a lot to take away from Dearist’s new video release, and definitely interesting to see what it means to different people. Music wise, the track is of impressive production, and the bands similarities to Deftones (although in a perkier way) is a massive appeal as they bring their sound into a wider audience.

“Dearist is very DIY when it comes to the creative side of the band. Not only do we record and mix all our stuff but we are really lucky that Lee (our guitarist) is really good at all the visual aspects. He does all our design and video work, which is great because we get a lot of freedom and time to work on stuff, though we do go overboard sometimes when planning videos.”

-Adam Binder, front man of Dearist.

Sonder is available for preorder here for its April release. This link instantly gives buyers a download copy of ‘Drowning’ along with the bands remastered version of their first 2015 album This House Has No Windows which received huge praise from the likes of Kerrang!, Rock Sound and many more. Being recognised by Thursday’s Geoff Rickly, the quintet’s upcoming Sonder is massively anticipated among the scene.

POLY-MATH ‘House Of Wisdom | We Are The Devil’ Pre-orders are live now!

a0050368880_10

Set for release on April 20th via Lonely Voyage Records and Nice Weather For Airstrikes, Poly-Math has confirmed that pre-orders for their upcoming album House Of Wisdom | We Are The Devil is now live for both vinyl or digital purchases. To celebrate their announcement, Poly-Math has thrown in a free digital download of their lead single ‘Ink Of Scholars | Blood Of Tigris’ for free from their BandCamp.

“Ink of Scholars is one of the more time-signature-focused tracks on the record. We wanted to blend big riffs with a few confusing rhythms and see where it ended up, so the first section ended up being all 3 of us playing almost entirely different parts to create that jagged, out of sync feel.”

Currently up for free download here, ‘Ink Of Scholars | Blood Of Tigris’ is taken from their upcoming album, acting as a small taste of what’s to come. The track – six and a half minutes in length – is a mismatched ambient experience, with a rhythmic, hypnotising bass-track luring you in. It’s very experimental in nature, although Poly-Math combine their efforts to create a masterpiece of an instrumental with quick guitar and hard-hitting drums.

Their upcoming album is full of complexity, with many intriguing and interesting areas. Being equipped with a reversible LP cover, Poly-Math has put a lot of thought into their work. The album’s concept comes from the 13th Century House Of Wisdom in Baghdad and the Siege of 1258 which led to their destruction as well as being cited as one of the major causes of the end of the Islamic Golden Age. Funded by fans, House Of Wisdom | We Are The Devil also includes the voices of supporters that were sent in on the final mix. While the band have a variety of influences including Mastodon and King Crimson, Poly-Math has taken their exploration further by including saxophone, organs and even a small amount of vocals.

Pre-order links for House Of Wisdom | We Are The Devil are now live on Poly-Math’s BandCamp. Make sure to grab your free copy of ‘Ink Of Scholars | Blood Of Tigris’ by clicking here.
