The band JOANovArc have been on our radar for a while, and have been picking up nods from the likes of Maiden frontman, Bruce Dickinson.

Now the band are set to release their new White Trash single through Red Vixen Records and unveil a brand new video (see below).

“Machination” is the second album from Italian band Secret Rule and it was released by Scarlet Records on 24th June. The band formed in 2014 and released their debut album “Transposed Emotions” through Rocksector Records in February 2015. I posted a recommendation for that album last year and played tracks from it on quite a few occasions. It was good therefore to get an e-mail about the new album. I played the track “The Image” on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 19th June.

Departed released their self-titled EP on 18th June and it’s one that is well worth checking out. The press release that accompanied the e-mail we received immediately grabbed my interest as it revealed that the band included Empire of Fools singer Mark Pascall and former Treatment guitarist Ben Brookland. I’ve played Empire of Fools tracks on Rock Radio NI quite a bit and the Brookland era Treatment (up to late 2013) probably produced their best material. A quick listen to the EP confirmed that it was indeed something special.

WHEN you sit down to consider what to call your album, it can be a laborious chore; writer's block can cripple all thoughts, a wrenching agony trying to decide what best encapsulates your sound, your vision and the passion you put into the platter you are about to unleash into the public realm.

Then it must only be 'Like A Combine Harvester In A Field Of Crippled Rabbits' if your band is Acid Age'. No other choice really.

Of course it's full throttle thrash metal

HARD working three-piece, The Amorettes, have earned their stripes on the road, with solo shows and support slots with the likes of Danko Jones and Europe to name but a few. Most recently they had a Download slot when they had a chance to air some new tunes.

Those tunes have emerged like a slick snake of fun from their release on Off Yer Rocka of the album 'White Hot Heat'. And, what an album it is!

This is a collection of 10 tunes that put you

A COVERS album. What's the fucking point, you've heard the songs before. Except when its a covers album by Six Feet Under.

Truth be told we never really 'got' the whole Graveyard Classic thing before. It was all well and good and a little entertaining. However, on number four they have nailed it impressively, Barnes practically losing it in an effort to extract each ounce of fun in his death metal delivery of 11 classics.

With the title 'Number of the Priest'

THRASH. When it is done well there is no purer adrenaline rush, that feeling that your face has been dragged through s barbed wire fence, yet you are still smiling.

The new Bull-Riff Stampede release, 'Enraging The Beast' has that effect, but with an added smack to the face. Yet, you'll still be smiling after they kick you in the ass all the way into the mosh pit.

From the title track opener, through to closer 'Lone Ember' they rarely put a foot wrong; no

Sometimes you hear a cover version of a classic rock track and the response could range from cringing a little to outright revulsion. Other times, it can be almost a revelation, and sound as good, or even better than the original. My response to Jorn’s album “Heavy Rock Radio” which was released by Frontiers Records on 3rd June, definitely falls into the latter category. Having listened to previous cover versions released by Jorn over the years, I was expecting no less. In other words, there are cover versions and then there are Jorn Lande cover versions!!

rocketship92: Great show!
Alice15: My name is Becky Baxter and I am a 15 year old lead singer with a rock and blues band called Riff Diamond. We are so excited to be appearing at the Oh Yeah Music Centre in Belfast on 15th December 2015 and we were wondering if you could give us some publicity for our upcoming gig. All proceeds are in aid of The National Autistic Society. This is a subject close to my heart as my sister Hannah is diagnosed with Asphergers.
Hannah is a gifted and prolific writer and we, as a band, are honoured to give her a platform to express her views and her perspective on a society with which she can feel out of sync. Such songs as "Masquerade", " Count Me Out"and "Welcome to the End of Forever" encapsulate this.

These songs are among many of Riff Diamond's original material, the bulk of which capture the essence of classic rock and blues artists like Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters and Led Zeppelin and combine them with an original, vibrant and contemporary creativity. Added to this, the band showcases the great guitar skills of Conal O' Donoghue, our 17 year old lead guitarist who made it through to the last 60 auditions out of 1000 entries to Sky Arts Guitar Star. Together with John Mc Nulty rocking it on drums and Shauna Mc Garrity acing it on bass, we are Riff Diamond, a new exciting band which would welcome all your support.
