Irish sludge metal merchants Zhora have recently posted a live video from this year’s Bloodstock Festival, which you can watch in full below. In the words of vocalist Colin Bolger, “Turmoil does exactly what it says on the tin. It takes you and your precious feelings and drags them through the mud and blood until you can’t take no more.”
They’ve had enough crossover appeal to play at both the Download and Reading/Leeds Festivals, shared stages with Foo Fighters and The Cribs and more. Wolverhampton’s God Damn have now unveiled a new video for the devastating ‘I’ll Bury You’, a track that combines noisy art-rock elements with a sludge-fuelled riff.
The video marks the end of the current chapter in the band’s history. They’re now about to take a short break and reflect before writing their next album.
Given Andrew Latimer’s intermittent approach to work over the past decade or so, a rare sighting of Camel is always something to rejoice. In September 2018, Camel fans have reason to be very excited when the band will embark on a short run of dates and the live set will include their 1976 masterpiece ‘Moonmadness’ played in full. The full list of dates and other details can be found in the press release below.
Earlier in 2017, Americana/pop duo Ferris & Sylvester released their debut, ‘The Yellow Line’ EP. Its songs mixed pop sensibilities with an old fashioned singer-songwriter mentality and was well worth hearing, especially for those looking for a less country alternative to Lewis & Leigh.
As part of the promotion for their second EP, As Sirens Fall have issued a new video for ‘In My Mind’, featuring Skindred frontman Benji Webbe. A great crossover track combining the band’s own melodic metal/emo style with various reggae breakdowns, it’s a superb showcase for all concerned. The song has been called a “battle cry” with it’s big chorus hook and frontman Mikey has claimed that making the video was “absolute insanity” since the band “shot enough footage to make a short film”.
