It’s a gluttony of reviews this week as Remfry and Steve bin off Trade off (again … sorry we WILL come back to it) and instead review a plethora of new releases from Loathe, Green Day, Stone Temple Pilots, Sepultura, Sylosis, Spanish Love Songs, Napalm Death and Vennart … phew! There’s also live reviews of Sleep Token, Five Finger Death Punch and the Backyard Babies / The Wildhearts co-headliner
After nearly coming to blows the Riot Act chaps are both up for a ruck again this week as they review the surprise new covers album by Weezer. Which is either a genuinely brilliant piece of marketing, if you believe Remfry, or a cynical, stinking waste of everyone’s time, according to Steve.
There are also reviews on the new albums from Bring Me The Horizon, Ithaca and Spielbergs, a Trade Off between Cult Leader’s A Patient Man and Favez’s From Lausanne, Switzerland and a whole load of live reviews courtesy of Fucked Up, Boss Keloid, Mastodon and Sick Of It All.
