LIVE REVIEW: Gary Numan and the Skaparis Orchestra, O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, London

Bow before the Numan race….. Comeback is a vastly overrated word. Especially when the person in question hasn’t disappeared from anything. Gary Numan is a man with whom that word was associated with, until he smashed the charts last year with his album, Savage (Songs From A Broken World). He has now decided to turn it up a notch by doing an orchestral tour, and on Sunday 18th November, he treated Shepherds… Keep Reading

Cane Hill Announce New EP Kill The Sun

New Orleans based Cane Hill have, most prominently since the established and current line up, provided brutal, emotionally charged alternative heavy metal with nu metal edges.

REVIEW: Blue Nation Release Powerhouse Album ‘Kaftan Society’

The agonisingly long and tantalising wait for the new album from the Birmingham-based three-piece is now over.
