From Inside band photo

Emerging alternative metal quartet From Inside return with their mesmerising sophomore EP, ‘When I’m Breathing Without You’, coming out on 14th September, and the exciting Liverpool outfit have also just premiered a brand new video for one of its tracks, ‘Before I Leave’.

Expressing a sound that fuses sweeping atmospherics with driving distorted guitars, all framed by layered orchestral synths and emotional lyrics and themes, From Inside aim to challenge and ignite the listener.

Having officially formed at the beginning of 2017, the four-piece quickly burst onto the scene with their debut single, ‘Find My Way’, which was premiered by Kerrang! Radio, and was soon followed by the band’s first EP, entitled ‘The New Era’.

A sell-out show in their home city sparked early momentum and the alternative metallers proceeded to grow their fan base, playing dates with such outfits as WSTR, Loathe, and Holding Absence, as well as touring with the likes of Crazy Town and Slaves.

From Inside have gone from strength to strength, and 2018 is set up to be a critical year for them with the impending release of their new EP, and they had this to say about it: “The message is clear and simple… life can be difficult at times, but through hope and perseverance you will one day come through on the other side to find a better life. The past is in the past, the future is what is important.”

With further music videos and single releases to follow, along with a run of shows in September, the fledgling quartet are sure to become one of the major players on the UK alternative metal scene.

RISING METAL QUARTET FEAR ME DECEMBER TO RELEASE NEW EP THIS SEPTEMBER

Fear Me December band photo

Fear Me December are an accomplished Anglo-Argentinean quartet who were originally formed in 2012 by vocalist and bassist Victoria Cabanellas and guitarist Valentin Macagno.

After receiving strong support for their debut EP, ‘Who Cares’, the band decided to relocate to England in 2014, and soon after, they delivered their debut album, ‘Between Violence and Silence’.

The record widened the heavy rock outfit’s reach and fan base, however, the band were struggling with personnel, but after a lengthy search, the band recruited Tony Small on drums and Stuart Woolley on rhythm guitar.

With a heavier sound and fresh impetus, the alternative rock crew began to reshape and craft an original set and pen tunes for their forthcoming new EP, ‘Crystallized’.

The four-piece were recently snapped up by Reaction Management (Altered Sky), and they have also just completed work on what is set to be their finest release to date, which arrives this September, and boasts four blistering slabs of melodic metal and alluring modern rock.

From the pounding burly edge of ‘Fight Me’, to the tuneful sensibilities of ‘Not Wired The Same’, the EP showcases the band’s songwriting heart and steel in equal measure.

‘This Is Not OK’ further highlights the quartet’s deft ability to create a true anthem, and the EP’s title track signs off the release in fantastic style with its urgent rhythmic passages and captivating hook.

With a string of UK shows also planned for September, and further festival appearances, Fear Me December are set for great heights.

OXFORD MATHCORE TRIO MASIRO ANNOUNCE SOPHOMORE EP

Masiro band photo

Oxford mathcore trio Masiro have been captivating listeners with their own blend of math-prog metal since the tail end of 2011.

Originally formed with Chris Pethers on drums and Mike Bannard on guitar, they soon wanted to push the envelope, and consequently hooked up with Chris Hutchinson-Mogg (ex-50ft Panda) to help fulfil their unique vision of producing a sound that is not only interesting and off-kilter, but hypnotic and alluring.

Although influenced by everyone from Meshuggah and Primus, through to the Mars Volta, Masiro bear their own markings, evidenced in the shape of their brand new EP, ‘Geodesics’, which is out on Friday 7th September.

Masiro spent their formative years shaping their set and focusing on their art. By 2016, the three-piece created their first EP, ‘Technocologist Unknown’, which caught the ears of Louder Than War, Alt Dialogue, Can This Even Be Called Music, The Punk Archive, and many others.

Shows with Poly-Math, Core of iO, Iran Iran, and Kusanagi have also only furthered the band’s reputation, and so too did last year’s appearance at Oxford’s renowned Audioscope Festival.

By 2017, the band were ready to lay down ideas for their sophomore EP. After many months of work, the trio put the final touches to the record this spring.

Entitled ‘Geodesics’, the EP features Charlie Cruickshank on saxophone for the song, ‘K-Ursa’, and long-time friend and collaborator, Lee Riley, supplying drone material for the track, ‘Intermission: Graveyard Orbit’.

‘Geodesics’ is a record that displays the breadth of MASIRO’s ability across six distinct cuts, panning from subtle introspection to ferocious catharsis.

Inventive and expansive, the band have amalgamated a sound that is imaginative and ambitious. The prog-math trio are announcing key shows throughout this summer, so stay glued for social media announcements, and watch them soar.

WELSH METALCORE QUINTET BLACK WATER CHEMISTRY DETAIL EP PLANS AND UNVEIL NEW TRACK

Black Water Chemistry band photo

South Wales metal outfit Black Water Chemistry are carving out a prominent name for themselves, as they launch out of the underground and aim for the jugular of the UK scene, loaded with their brand new EP, ‘Return To Ashes’, which arrives on Friday 31st August. Before then, the band have released the title track for it.

Hailing from Newport, Black Water Chemistry were formed in 2014 by blood brothers Matt Saunders and Chris Saunders, respectively handling lead vocals and lead guitars, aided and abetted by long-time friends “Gizz” on bass, “Murph” taking care of the rhythm guitar, and Dan behind the kit.

The formidable five-piece have spent the last 18 months working tirelessly to cement their style and increase their fan base, and the band are now beginning to bear the fruits of their labour.

The Welsh outfit have already been favourably compared to such grunge pioneers as Soundgarden, to metal heavyweights such as Mastodon and Parkway Drive.

The culmination of these sounds has allowed the quintet to utilise a blend of older disciplines, fused with more modern metal techniques and musings, to form an energetic yet aggressive style that provides something for everyone’s tastes.

The band have pulled out all the stops in crafting their upcoming EP, and in doing so, they have truly created something special, from the blistering and engulfing beatings of their future single, ‘Oracles’, through to the cinematic vibe and explosive vigour of the EP’s namesake.

Producing such a statement of intent takes its time; lead guitarist and producer, Chris Saunders, comments about ‘Return To Ashes’: “Our music has progressed a lot within the last couple of years and we needed to update the way we recorded it. This time we had more of a DIY approach than our first effort. Periphery was the biggest influence on the way we approached the production, musically they’re one of my favourite bands, and their production is killer.

EMERGING CORNISH HARD ROCK TRIO CIRCLE OF CROWS TO RELEASE DEBUT EP THIS AUGUST

Circle Of Crows band photo

Despatching slamming rock thrusts and engaging hooks with stout muscular riffs, emerging hard rock trio Circle Of Crows have been ripping up a storm in the south-west of England for the past year, and now they are planning an attack across the UK with the release of their debut EP, ‘Everything Comes After Zero’, out on Friday 17th August.

The three-piece have also just dropped a new track, ‘How To Wait For Nothing’, which will be featuring on the upcoming release.

Formed in the spring of last year, and hailing from the Cornish town of Newquay, the surfing capital of Britain, Circle Of Crows went through the usual growing pains suffered by most new bands, before they hit the ideal concoction with Kyle Gormley on vocals and guitar, Josh Smith on bass, and Steve Sudlow on drums.

The fledgling trio proceeded to make their mark on the south-west by serving up a series of exhilarating performances, and with a growing regional fanbase in tow, the hard-rockers headed to the studio to lay down their debut EP.

Here’s what Kyle Gormley has to say about it: “The EP was actually recorded last summer, over five days at Cube Studios in Cornwall. It was a joy to produce, it’s something we are immensely proud of, and we can’t wait to share it with our new fans.

With post-production delays now out of the way, the three-piece are now ready for a full launch of what is surely an engrossing debut record.

Boasting six slabs of infectious modern rock that take from such highly-regarded outfits as Alter Bridge, Audioslave, Metallica, and Biffy Clyro, 2018 looks set to be the year that Circle Of Crows take flight.
