146 – black midi, Perturbator, Noctule and Mannequin Pussy

Steve’s furious as per after Remfry takes 25 minutes to make a coffee … Why do something in 3 minutes when you can do it in 25 eh?

Once we get around to talking about … ya know, MUSIC, we discuss the news that Download are set to host a three day pilot festival at a capacity of 10,000 in three weeks time … a festival … with music … in a field … in three weeks. Bet the internet’s still gonna kick off though isn’t it! Oh and ex-Megadeth bassist David Ellefson is, in the words of Frankie Howerd, a very dirty old man.


Reviews this week are Cavalcade by black midi, Lustful Sacraments by Perturbator, Wretched Abyss by Noctule and Perfect by Mannequin Pussy.

61 – Hip Hopera

The Download announcement has got Steve and Remfry into a right tizzy, especially considering that Steve recently attended the Mercury Music Prize, an historically mocked (on this podcast at least) awards ceremony that’s giving far more exciting bands and artists a platform than Download seem to be managing at the moment. Steve and Remfry discuss (well …. Steve mainly rants, Remfry mainly listens). 

Ironically, it comes at a time when there is plenty of extremely exciting rock and metal bands making music, as is demonstrated in this week’s album reviews with new releases by Car Bomb, .gif from God and Nervus. The boys also cast their beady critical eye over new albums by 65DaysofStatic and Oddarrang and trade-off comes courtesy of mewithoutYou and Plan B.
