The UK Industrial beast that is Escape To What have just released their music video for the new song, Pandamonia, and it’s as huge as it is dark.
They’ve got the band name, they’ve got the song title, they’ve got the Matt Berry sample, all that’s left is a weird prog-metal concoction to bring it all together…
I have been hoping for about a year that I would get a submission catering to my love for Industrial, and Escape To What have certainly delivered.
This week I have been getting my metal fix from Beskar. I’ve mentioned numerous times about not being a huge fan of metal, so it takes something special, or at least different, to get a handful of compliments from me.
I have no idea if Scottish Metal is a legit thing, but if so then apparently this is it. So let’s keep up our shit hot rep that we currently have going with Scotland and check this out.
Bands that offer this frantic heavy punk-rock sound, like Winnebago Deal and The Dwyers, are an immediate win for me. Immediate 9/10 – review sorted.
I’d say about a third of the bands that land in my inbox have their names capitalised. I’m not sure if it is a genuine thing that most bands these days particularly spell their name in all caps, or if it is just a common choice in the way they type it for attention. Either way, this is another one of them, and to be honest, the name Powerpissed doesn’t need capitalising.
This is the first time since the first few months of The Cauteriser that I have written a review on something that wasn’t sent to me (the last being the almighty Mutation record.) I came across Seraph Sin purely because they were played on a radio show that my own music was featured on. I was immediately sold and this EP was something that I felt was a must-share.
I find more often than not that the lead in descriptions that come with the music I am sent doesn’t really mean a lot, especially once I have given the material a couple of listens. In this case, I was actually drawn in and got really excited to give The J Spot a listen. Unfortunately, 8 times out of 10 excitement turns into let down.
