Unless you happen to be from Ontario, or perhaps have an unhealthy obsession with Transatlantic power pop, there’s a good chance the name Dany Laj will not mean much to you. With his band The Looks, Dany has been cranking out quirky pop-rock sounds since 2016, but his recorded output goes back even further with a (now rare) solo EP from 2010.
On April 30th, death metal duo Goregäng will release their new EP ‘Long Live The Grime’. Ahead of that release, they have a treat for you.
Their current single ‘Electric Head Part 1 (The Agony)’ is a cover of the White Zombie classic, treated faithfully but injected with a Goregäng twist via a death metal inflected vocal. Perhaps what’s most impressive about their choice of cover is the guitar sound; they’ve absolutely nailed the bottom end sound from J. Yuenger’s guitar that helped make the original cut so distinctive. What’s more, they’ve given the new recording a send off with the kind of trashy (and vaguely NSFW) video clip that Rob Zombie would surely approve.
After releasing several singles and EPs, US punks Ravagers are gearing up to release their first full length album. ‘Badlands’ is due for release at the end of the summer. That seems like a long time away, but in the meantime, the band have a new treat for you.
By mixing a huge slab of groove metal with a pinch of metalcore, Oregon’s Ligature Marks create an amazing sound on their current single ‘Noise In The Signal’. It’s the kind of track that all fans of the heavier end of the spectrum will love in a heartbeat.
Hooveriii (pronounced Hoover 3) are gearing up for the release of their new album ‘Water For The Frogs’. Due for release on April 9th, the new album finds the six person band going deep into guitar driven grooves and heavy psych rock. Taking Bowie’s Berlin trilogy and old Krautrock for influences, the band’s current material sounds both retro and current. There’s a fuzziness to the riffs that could draw in fans of the noisiest end of the indie spectrum, while working a core sound that manages to be experimental yet still strikingly accessible.
