This follows on from my old Wordpress site of the same name. It's pretty much the same site, but in bite size portions. If you want something more in depth, go to the other site or ask me a question.
You never know, I might actually give you a satisfactory answer.
P.S. Yes, I always look that happy...

Holy shit. Jimbob from Taint is back with H A R K. This is some amazing stuff right here.


In case you missed it, here’s a first track off “Consequences” the brand new full-length from The Rodeo Idiot Engine.

"Consequences" will be released on 12"LP on October 1st, co-release with Black Lake Records and Dingleberry Records.


Loud, angry, abrasive and more focused, The Rodeo Idiot Engine sound fantastic on this!


Expect to see reviews of Intronaut’s Habitual Levitations, Gatherer’s Caught Between A Rock And A Sad Place and Sick/Tired’s King Of Dirt in the next few days!

Riff, riff, riff. #hangthebastard #manchester #hardcore

POZ Stream: Gatherer - “What If I Can’t”

Gatherer have released another track from their upcoming album, Caught Between A Rock And A Hard Place. “What If I Can’t” is quite a change to their other stuff. Slower in pace and with a large amount of clean vocals, it’s surprisingly good. But don’t listen to me, click on the link and check it out!

I bloody love this band. It’s also good to see an artist do something positive and promote such a good organisation too.

Track: Sleeping In
Artist: No Omega
Album: Shame
