Riot Act Reviews

Voices – Breaking the Trauma Bond

It’s time for another review from Steve and Remfry on Riot Act Reviews, where we collect our thoughts regarding a significant or interesting recent album that our hosts have heard.

On this episode we are diving deeper into the underground than we have previously done so on this portion of the show by looking at Breaking the Trauma Bond, the 4th studio album from London goth-black metal band Voices. Featuring members of cult UK extreme metal band Akercocke, Voices received a little bit of attention and critical love for 2014’s London album but it is here on their fourth record where Voices have really found their… er… voice. This is a sixteen track, 68 minute meld of Danzig, Killing Joke, Satyricon, Bauhaus and Type O Negative, and we wanted to bring it to your attention.

160 – Kanye West, Iron Maiden, The Wildhearts and Bokassa

It’s a heck of a week for looooong releases with a fair dollop of controversy thrown in there for good measure as we take a look at the long-awaited double album Donda by Kanye West, before also casting a critical eye over Iron Maiden’s latest double opus Senjistsu as well as 21st Century Love Songs by The Wildhearts and Molotov Rocktail by Bokassa.

We also take a brief look at the state of ALT LDN festival, as well as live shows from Voices and Idles.

31 – Dead Man Conjuring

On this week’s Riot Act we have a very special guest in the form of Conjurer’s Brady Deeprose, who appears to have come on the show purely to correct Steve and Remfry’s pronunciation. What a tosser!
