44 – #5iveForSlamDunk2020

Steve and Remfry both ventured out to their first UK festival of the year in the form of Slam Dunk. They bring you their review through a very heavily Riot Acted-tinted perspective (i.e. atypical). Speaking of festivals, they also discuss a couple of interesting additions to the Glastonbury line-up and Steve reports back from Wembley Arena where he saw grunge-metal legends Alice in Chains.

Album reviews this week come courtesy of Her Name is Calla, Cave In, Royal Republic and Cursed Earth and Trade off comes courtesy of Hope Fading Nightly by Tellison and The Hardest Way To Make A Living by The Streets.

05 – Chaos Can’t be Perfected (feat. Frontierer)

It’s a big week for reviews this week as Steve and Remfry discuss the latest releases from some sizeable bands: Alice In Chains, Interpol, Death Cab For Cutie, Mark Lanegan and Duke Garwood, and Idles. There’s also discussion on this year’s Heavy Music Awards, which band have made the most successful change in their sound, and on who is the REAL star of this show!

Most importantly Remfry sits down to chat with Frontierer about their incredible new album Unloved and how they are doing their best to shape heavy music into exciting new forms.

03 – Live Evil: The Bloodstock 2018 Review

It’s a bumper live review episode of Riot Act this week as Stephen and Remfry have spent the last week seeing… well, pretty much band ever! From Pianos Become The Teeth to Danzig, from Larry And His Flask to Iron Maiden, and all culminating in a full review of Bloodstock Open Air, the UK’s premier metal festival.

We also review the new album from Foxing, take a retrospective look at Ian Brown’s Music Of The Spheres and Sigur Rós’ Kveikur, and we try to recite the alphabet backwards… although no one really knows why.
