Music Video: The Hellfreaks – Men In Grey

In January 2020 Hellfreaks’ fourth album “God On The Run” will be released. The band has been working on the new songs for over two years, fulfilling their old dream to work with foreign producers. For pre-production work Paul Miner(New Glory, Atreyu, Death By Stereo), for production/mixing Evan Rodaniche(Escape The Fate, Powerman 5000, Lacey Sturm), and for the mastering Tom Waltzjoined them to provide the perfect final form for the band’s songs and ideas.

Thanks to Mihaszna Film, the first video clip has been made for the track “Men In Grey”. It focuses on the value of time and its irreplaceable and irreversible nature. “Under the pressure of everyday performance stress, everybody is constantly striving for efficiency, trying tomake every moment of their lives worthwhile, because our social worth is determined by the achievements in our work. Meanwhile, we do not have the time to ask ourselves: Is this really the key to success and happiness?” Continue reading →

Album Review: PSOTY – Sunless

Album Review: PSOTY – Sunless

When a copy of Sunless by PSOTY (formerly known as Pet Slimmers of the Year) landed at Noodle Towers, I didn’t know what to expect. A week later and it’s played more than anything else in the office.

Post Metal? Post Rock? I don’t know, they don’t seem to fit neatly into a single genre. What they bring with Sunless is a crushing assault of pounding bass and drums, huge-sounding guitars and ever-changing dynamics which take you on a journey into their dark and mesmerising world. And it’s glorious! Continue reading →

Woodpecker Travel Guitars And Ukuleles

Woodpecker Travel Guitars And Ukuleles

I spend more time than I’d like to admit scrolling through Instagram. I recently came across a company who really stood out. Many companies now offer travel-sized acoustic guitars but Woodpecker only make travel-sized acoustic guitars and ukuleles. It’s nice to see a company focus solely on these products and try to make them as good as possible rather than just adding a small guitar to an existing product line. Continue reading →
