Playing the Borderline is a rite of passage for every musician who steps onto its legendary stage. Located moments away from Denmark Street, London’s own Tin Pan Alley, the Borderline is the perfect location for the world’s songwriters to showcase their latest efforts. Located below ground, it’s a place where songs can rise into the heavens, or sink without trace even deeper into the earth.

Hailing from Nashville, another of the world’s most important musical locations, Josh Farro naturally knows a thing or two about Read more…

Josh Farro knows there’s nothing like a fresh start.

From touring heavily from his mid-teens onward with Paramore to an acrimonious split, eventual civil resolution, and assorted post-Paramore projects all receding in his career’s rear-view mirror, Josh Farro has had a lot to move on from. Still, move on he has – and in the very near future, his next move is sure to have British fans hyped as Farro supports his debut solo album Walkways with a UK tour kicking off at The Waterfront Studio in Norwich and ending at legendary London venue The Borderline…

You’re due to tour the UK starting this Thursday (November 17) – aside from excitement, how’re you feeling right now?

I’m feeling quite a bit of stress. I forgot how much work it is to Read more…

A camel is a horse designed by committee.

This single sentence encapsulates the core of my perspective on music. I love hearing one person give birth to an entire creative project, aided ideally by others who have as little input as is necessary to get the job done. Creative control freaks hold the key to my heart, whether they be virtuoso guitarist-composers such as Steve Vai, or erudite musical polymaths like Devin Townsend.

Plus, if you Google that same sentence, this image comes up:

Camden High Street is a busy place at the best of times. Bargain hunters crowd its world-famous market; tourists take selfies in front of outlandish shopfronts; alternative fashionistas strut around in their latest cutting-edge purchases.

Add in Camden Rocks, a twenty-venue, two-hundred-band music festival stretching from the vicinity of the Roundhouse down to Mornington Crescent, and you’re talking the coolest kind of chaos imaginable Read more…

The Hyena Kill – ‘Atomised’ [Review]

Let’s get the lazy comparison part of this review out of the way first. To my ears, on Atomised The Hyena Kill often sound like the next Royal Blood.

But, at the same time, that tag alone doesn’t do them justice.

The Hyena Kill – comprised of guitarist/vocalist Steven Dobb and pneumatic-limbed drummer Lorna Blundell – deal in hectic, raw, vitally energetic and punk-edged rock songs. Atomised sounds monolithic, a feral and Read more…

If you’re a UK-based rock, metal, and/or punk fan, you need to be at Camden Rocks Festival this year. The lineup is fucking ear-watering, totalling 200 bands performing live and in your face over the course of one single day and multiple London venues.

At the time of writing, 80 bands still have yet to be announced – but of those we do know about, here are seven of my personal favourites:

SikTh

Sikth Live Crowd Shot Camden Rocks Festival 2016 Opacities

As any self-respecting tech-metal fan knows, SikTh are absolutely sick. Returning to shatter minds after an extended split via a series of rapturously received reunion shows and last December’s awe-inspiring Opacities, SikTh are continuing to Read more…

Deftones – ‘Gore’ [Review]

Deftones Gore Album Review 2016

No other band on Earth sounds exactly like Deftones.

Since 1988, Deftones have been busy birthing one of the most recognisable styles in metal. Over the course of almost three decades, they’ve racked up platinum albums, won over legions of die-hard fans, and coped heroically with the passing of original bassist Chi Cheng in 2013. Deftones’ guts, grit, and resilience are absolutely incredible.

Deftones have never recorded a note I didn’t love – and Gore’s eleven tracks don’t contain Read more…

Black Peaks – ‘Crooks’ [Review]

Black Peaks

Whenever I listen to Black Peaks, I wind up with a massive grin splitting my face like a Halloween pumpkin. Their Closer To The Sun EP has been played so many times at TMMP HQ that I’m sure the ones and zeroes are starting to wear out, and the more recent Glass Built Castles pushed things even further toward trance-inducing bliss overload.

In short, Read more…
