After a few weeks of quite unusual shows, we’re back to our regularly scheduled programming, with Steve and Remfry reviewing new releases by Volbeat, Russian Circles, Lingua Ignota, Thy Art Is Murder and Down I Go. Steve also recounts his experience seeing Uniform and Bad Breeding on the hottest day of the year and Remfry talks about his experience at Sigur Rós’s free ambient Hyde Park ‘Liminal’ show, plus there’s further news and speculation on the long awaited Tool album.
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.
Welcome to Riot Act. A brand new podcast for fans of alternative music hosted by Stephen Hill and Remfry Dedman. In this four hour plus opening episode we go through numerous sub-genres, from prog rock to hardcore punk and everything in-between, to compile the ultimate guide to alternative music.
