108 – PVRIS, Ulver, Narrow Head and CLT DRP

There’s some sad news to begin with as Steve pays tribute to Riley Gale, the vocalist for Texan thrash metallers Power Trip, who tragically passed away earlier this week at the age of 34. RIP Riley and condolences to his friends and family. 

Remfry joins in to help review new releases by PVRIS, Ulver, CLT DRP, Narrow Head and Brotherhood of the Lake and Broken Records is forced to go to some really nasty, grotty places once again, as we take a look at Bad Blood, the sixth record from Jesus David Torres aka Dahvie Vanity, the despicable probable-nonce responsible for Blood on the Dance Floor.

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.
