Dr. Hell – Apocalypse Boobs

dr-hell_RingMasterReview

Once more confronting ears with sounds suitable to voice an eager resurrection of the undead in a zealously riotous rampage, Dr. Hell unleash a new death dance of blood strewn horror punk going under the notoriety of Apocalypse Boobs. The German quartet’s mini album is a carnival of infectiously decayed punk rock and ravenous enterprise weaving familiar and individual exploits into their finest offering to date.

Since emerging from their respective North Bavarian mausoleums in 2010, though rumours are they actually formed in 1812 a secret place known as “The Bloody Islands”, Dr. Hell have released two albums of their raw and predatory horror punk, When I was just a little ghoul … in 2012 and Drunken Zombies two years later, and shared stages with the likes of The Meteors, Demented Are Go, KoffinKats, Blitzkid, The Other, and BananeMetalik to name just a few. Set to uncage their live ferocity on the UK this November, the band whets the appetite and scars the psyche in anticipation with the Undead Artists Records release of Apocalypse Boobs.

drhrll art_RingMasterReviewFrom its melodic Intro, the album leaps at the senses with Dead Girl with hungry riffs and swinging rapier like beats on the frontline. Swiftly led by the growling tones of DanDan Delirious, band and song career through ears with contagious punk/hard rock revelry and though there are no major surprises it is irrepressibly addictive and soon gaining full and eager listener involvement before Hate launches its more venomous and fiery tirade. With a touch of Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13 to its irritability and raw trespass, the track binds ears with a toxic groove as again the rhythms of bassist Ina Insanity and drummer Mike Maniac growl and bite respectively.

Both tracks spark an eager appetite for the album’s assault and each is quickly eclipsed by the riotous stomp of Zombie Zoundz. With a whiff of The Sweet like seventies glam and the invasive predation of The Damned to its character, the track stalks the imagination around unbridled bouts of virulent aural voodoo resulting in a track for which lustful participation is a given.

Shrunken Heads is just as irresistible next, opening with heavy metal bred grooves around rockabilly riffs which only increase their and the song’s potency with every passing second of catchy enterprise. As in its predecessors, the song has a chorus ripe with contagion while guitarist Podo Panic entangles it in greed sparking melody sick flames throughout. As impressive as it starts, the album is at its pinnacle over the two tracks and only reinforces the point with Wasted Horror Punkrock Princess and a caustic punk brawl resembling a mix of Angelic Upstarts, Blitzkid, and Turbonegro with just a touch of Madball to its inescapable catchiness.

Completed by the anthemic incitement of Zombies in Town, another track as captivating in its antagonistic nature as its web of enterprising flavours within a rousing punk roar, Apocalypse Boobs  is primal rock ‘n’ roll to get loudly enthused over. As suggested it is not always the most unique proposal yet every track is pretty much distinct to Dr. Hell, igniting a lusty reaction and greed for much more; reason alone to stand in its bloodlust we say.

Kevin Mcgowan – Hibernation Masturbation

km-pic_RingMasterReview

Hibernation Masturbation is the new single from Scottish musician/songwriter Kevin Mcgowan, an artist who collaborated a few months back with Karel Fialka on his new album Peace v War. Written seven years ago as Mcgowan reflected on the growing reliance of the world on technology and the media for information and allowing its guidance of our lives, the song is a tantalising landscape of indie rock with the potent harmonic tones of its creator inciting the imagination in fine style.

The theme and insight of the track is even more relevant to the now as people seemingly live their lives in the fantasy of the internet, its relationships, and through media controlled information rather than the real world around them.

km-art_RingMasterReviewMusically the song carries a nineties indie/Brit pop feel, essences of bands like Suede and Pulp teasing ears within Mcgowan’s own open invention. Its opening touch is woven by the strings of Mcgowan’s guitar, each note a lure inviting and tantalising as darker rhythms stroll alongside with the weight of shadows on their shoulders.

Instantly engaging with a growing catchiness to its character and gait, Hibernation Masturbation only tightens its grip on ears and appetite as a blossoming tapestry of captivating hooks and suggestive melodies entangles the imagination along with the descriptive potency of the lyrics and vocals.

With every aspect of Hibernation Masturbation from creation to release a solo effort by Mcgowan, the single is a creative statement which commands attention, its sound and enterprise simply ensuring that success is a done deal.

Hibernation Masturbation is out now via imagine & believe records on iTunes @ https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/hibernation-masturbation-single/id1146680042?ls=1&app=itunes

Fond Of Rudy – The Line

fond-of-rudy_RingMasterReview

It is never a bad sign when a song almost haunts the memory from the first meeting and that is an ability the new single from British indie poppers Fond Of Rudy possesses. Like Orange Juice caught in the Caribbean sun, The Line is a refreshing dose of summer goodness as virulently flirtatious as it is feverishly energetic.

Creating Calypso infested pop, the Brighton/London hailing members of Fond Of Rudy emerged a couple of years ago, taking their time honing their sound and line-up before this past January the foursome of vocalist/rhythm guitarist Matt, lead guitarist Ross, bassist Otto, and drummer Si became and found the final piece of the creative jigsaw.

fond-of-rudy-artwork_RingMasterReviewTaken from an EP set for release early 2017, The Line will be the introduction to a great many to the band’s lively and easily captivating sound and it needs a mere handful of seconds to make a strong impression. From its opening harmonic coaxing within a brewing harmonic atmosphere, the song has attention held, gripped even tighter as its bounty of spicy hooks and warm melodies surround a great blend of Matt’s potent voce as keenly backed by those of Ross and Otto.

Beats are crisp and the bassline the right engaging shade of shadow alongside the raw magnetism of guitar and harmony fuelling the whole riveting encounter. That earlier suggested eighties flavouring is pure magnetism with the virulence of the track’s catchiness carrying something reminiscent of The Woodentops in its irresistible and hungry temptation.

We are among those hearing of Fond Of Rudy for the first time through The Line and sure to be with a great many too already breeding a real eagerness to hear more of their tantalising music.

The Line is out now.

Upcoming Live dates:-

5th November – Tram & Social, London

12th November 2016 – Printers Playhouse, EASTBOURNE
