Forever Cult – Antonio Banderas

FOREVER CULT PUB PROMO_RingMaster Review

Aligning the snarl of their previous single with a more uplifting parade of inescapable hooks and spicy grooves, indie rockers Forever Cult unleash new single Antonio Banderas, a release more than confirming what its impressive predecessor suggested, that they are one of the UK’s exciting new treats.

Hailing from Leeds, the 2012 formed Forever Cult has emerged as one of the more talked about prospects with their fiery mix of alternative rock and indie pop with other rich textures. Their sound is a blend of transfixing flavours which easily sparked acclaim and appetite through previous single Winter’s Glow and a live presence which has seen the band play both Leeds and Reading Festival, Tramlines, Live at Leeds, Long Division as well as share stages with the likes of Demob Happy, JAWS, Allusondrugs, Eagulls, Brawlers, Spring King, and DZ Deathrays. With one UK tour under their belts, the trio of Kieran Clarke, Aaron Snowdon, and Alex Greaves are setting out on a second this July with Antonio Banderas the thoroughly captivating teaser.

Antonio Banderas Artwork_RingMaster Review   The song opens on a scrub of guitar and the grizzly tone of the vocals, both aspects inescapably lined with an Arctic Monkeys twang which only adds to their appeal and coaxing. Swiftly rhythms are adding their invitation too, darker shadows of bass wantonly flirting with those feisty beats with an energy and swagger which only sparks the same in the varied vocals and the web of hooks and sonic tempting cast from the guitars. It is an irresistible mix increasing in seduction as effects clad voices at times and a psych rock breath washes over song and senses. Fair to say the contagion at large is bewitching, enticing feet and emotions to dance with the imagination and virulent enterprise of the song.

Whereas Winter’s Glow was a darker, grouchier prowl of a proposal, Antonio Banderas is a tenaciously livelier escapade, though still carrying intriguing shadows woven into one feisty stomp of a persuasion. The only thing wrong with the single is its short length; just as you are getting up a head of steam to indulge in its majesty, the two and half minutes are over, leaving a hunger for more and impatient anticipation for something even more substantial, like an album. Thanks to Antonio Banderas though, the summer just got steamier.

Antonio Banderas is out July 6th via Clue Records

Sirens In The Delta – Revolutions To Follow

Sirens in the Delta Promo Shot_Reputation Radio/RingMaster Review

From an intriguingly alluring name to a sound which stirs up air and ears alike, UK rockers Sirens In The Delta offer an attention grabbing and potential loaded introduction with debut EP Revolutions To Follow. Bulging with six tracks which resourcefully excite whilst laying the basis for even greater things ahead, the release declares the Teesside quintet as a band set to be a rich presence within the British rock scene.

Formed in 2013, it is fair to say that Sirens In The Delta has taken little time making a potent impression whilst whipping up an ever increasing and loyal fan base, a success matched in growing acclaim and attention. Live the band has shared stages with the likes of Funeral for a Friend, Skindred, The Blackout, InMe, The Answer, Collibus, and Allusondrugs, whilst songs have caught strong radio play from the likes of Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing. With the winning of the Rock The House Discretionary Rock Award last year under their belts too, the five piece of vocalist Katie, guitarists Gav and Rich, bassist Si, and drummer Glen has made 2015 their most potent yet with already a highly praised appearance at Download, a similarly successful UK tour through June, and now the national release of the captivating Revolutions To Follow.

The EP opens with new single Dirty Words, a punchy slice of alternative rock pop with a dark intimidating bass hum courting spicy grooves and fiery hooks. It is a virulently contagious encounter blooming further through the swiftly impressing tones of Katie and the open imagination veining both songwriting and delivery. The backing vocals of Rich make a great contrast and earthy grounding to the dramatic roar of Katie’s voice, her rousing presence wrapped in a just as magnetic melodic and rhythmic enterprise. Though a lighter affair than what is to come, the track grips and incites from start to finish, one impressive single soon making way for another and the bands current temptation Paris.

Sirens In Delta Cover Artwork_Reputation Radio/RingMaster Review   The second song unleashes a heavier snarl and temperament from its first breath, and is arguably the more dominate side of the Sirens In The Delta sound going by the rest of the release. Grouchy riffs and a just as irritable bass growl gets things off to a gripping start, their thick enticement matched and perfectly tempered by the harmony strong and inventive delivery of Katie. On a rolling canter of thickly landing and again inescapably infectious beats from Glen, the song is a prowling slab of compelling revelry able to up its energy and creative ante at will. There is a dirty air and aggressive edge to it too which only adds to the rich and inventive mix, the track hungry rock ‘n’ roll which alone will and has awoken greedy appetites for the band’s sonic proposal.

Casus Belli takes over next, quickly unveiling a leaping and agitated lure of rhythms aligned to tangy guitar grooving and equally unpredictable enterprise. To this as effects kiss the rich expression of the vocals, guitars cast a matching weave of provocative textures and ideation. The song ebbs and flows in energy whilst providing nothing less than absorbing drama and increasingly exotic temptation from start to finish, everything leading to an irresistible furnace of a finale. Already inflamed ears and imagination continue to be gripped by the song, developing a fresh dose of hunger for more which comes in the shapely presence of Halo straight after. Though the song does not quite match the previous trio in adventure and success, it is still a rich enticement of heavy melodic rock with attitude and power. Reminding a touch of Forever Still, the encounter brews an emotively driven and creatively spicy persuasion with the guitars especially spirited in invention.

The melodically charmed and darkly shadowed presence of The Attack sparks further greedy satisfaction, its elegant balladry and seductively cast vocal reflection just bewitching. There is a darker underbelly to the song though, a snarl of a tormented bassline and caustically touching riffs offering a busy and imaginative texture to perfectly off-set the beauty around it. Katie again enthrals with her impressive voice and style, repeating the lure in the closing might of Weapon. It is a heavy rocker of a tempting; bluesy tones wrapping the voice of the guitars and their grooves in an anthemic roar cast by a tempestuous heart.

The track is a glorious end to an increasingly impressing release. Each song reveals a little more to the depth and expanse of the songwriting and sound as well as the band’s craft and imagination. If anything it does not push its boldest elements far enough at times but nevertheless Revolutions To Follow is an exciting and addictive first encounter with Sirens In The Delta breeding anticipation of many more as the band grows and evolves into a potent presence upon the UK rock landscape.

The Revolutions To Follow EP is available from June 22nd through all digital platforms and digitally as well as on CD @ https://sirensinthedelta.bandcamp.com/

Peur – Future Architects EP

Gas STN B&W_Reputation Radio/RingMaster Review

Only days in and June 2015 is proving to be the source of some striking and seriously exciting encounters across a wealth of styles and genres. Another to add to that potent list is the Future Architects EP from UK trio Peur. Uniting their past two attention grabbing singles with new imagination loaded tracks, the Manchester band easily and forcibly confirm their growing stature as one of the more mouth-watering prospects on the British music scene.

Formed in 2013, the threesome of guitarist/vocalist Joe Lomax, bassist Ryan Greenhalgh, and drummer Sam Tempest quickly sparked support and attention with first single Anarchy and following debut EP We Can Build Astronauts in their band’s first few months. Live they did not take long in making a strong, acclaim earning impression either, 2014 seeing the band sharing stages with Empty Yard Experiment, DZ Deathrays, Allusondrugs, and Dearly Beloved. It was a busy and successful year which has continued into this with the release of a trio of singles, including This Will Destroy You, and now the Neil Treppas produced Future Architects.

The band’s inspirations includes artists ranging from Biffy Clyro to Nine Inch Nails, essences amongst many which make a swift spicing in the EP once the atmospheric Intro lays down the almost dystopian air of the release. The brief sonic narrative slips into the following They Have Destroyed Everything, and immediately the guitar of Lomax is casting melodic veins of acidic expression through the encroaching shadow thick landscape of the instrumental. That oppressive ambience is an imposing hue over pungent rhythms and a striking electronic colouring but suddenly lifts as the music in turn seamlessly flows into the gripping stroll of Explosions.

FA_Reputation Radio/RingMaster Review   An open and immediately magnetic Queens Of the Stone Age bred groove ignites ears first, its swinging persuasion matched by the rhythmic tenacity of Greenhalgh and Tempest. Contagion is a quick infestation of the song whilst drama and emotion is as rich through the enjoyable vocal tones and delivery of Lomax. That Josh Homme like spicing is an on-going tempting but as it expands and proceeds, the song explores a Muse like croon in chorus and voice where the early dramatic quality enriches every irresistible hooks and addictive groove within the encounter; familiarity and originality aligning for one voracious roar of a proposition.

     It Ends Before It Starts steps up next and it too is quickly enslaving ears and thoughts with healthy grooves, the thick lure of the one conjured by the bass especially captivating. Though it does not quite have the consistent swagger of its predecessor the track ebbs and flows with powerful energy and evocative invention. At times it offers a reflective, angst hued sigh and in others a bellowing expulsion of passion and intensity with both contrasts as potent and alluring as the other. Once more a Matt Bellamy and co breath coats the adventure but fair to say that again both songwriting and sound only use such influences as colour to their own designs.

The release ends with Hollow Skies, and if atmospheres and emotional intensity was thick before, they combine here for a smothering seduction fuelled further by the harmonic richness and craft of Lomax’s voice. Once more shadows line the noir lit theatre of the guitars and the emerging depths of the song, its body almost cavernous in feel with jabbing beats and darkly toned bass enterprise. Fair to say this time though it is the songwriting and the voice of Lomax which steals the show, even if unavoidably you have to also offer Muse as a close but certainly not quality defusing comparison to his presence.

The EP is as compelling as Peur is openly inventive, every track blossoming from the technical and inventive canvas the band members skilfully craft. They may still be looking for their truly distinct sound but more treats like Future Architects will see few complaining as Peur continues their impressive emergence and exploration.

The Future Architects EP is available now @ https://peurofficial.bandcamp.com/album/future-architects

Kobadelta – Open Visions

Photo by Daniel Robson

Photo by Daniel Robson

Blending the rousing elements of their second EP and the mesmeric seducing of their last, UK psyche rockers Kobadelta unleash their finest moment yet in the hauntingly irresistible shape of Open Visions. The EP provides a feast for ears and imagination to contemplate and devour in their individual ways, its clutch of songs almost hex like in their immersion and seduction of both. Within its arcane charm the band also reveals a greater maturity and inventive lust in songwriting and sonic explorations, Open Visions the simply irresistible dark side of the band’s creativity and the listener’s psyche.

Newcastle bred and formed in 2010, Kobadelta did not take long to arouse a potent following and local clamour for their sonic swelter of a sound and matching live presence. 2013 Debut EP Ritual (Time Flies) lit more than a few fires in ears and thoughts, which the following year its successors Hidden Door and Remain Distracted, took to stronger and broader levels with their compelling sounds. It is fair to say that 2014 was a big year for the band in general. The release of the two EPs surrounded by further successes with Kobadelta being invited to perform a live session for BBC Introducing, headlining the Tanners stage at Evolution Emerging Festival in Newcastle, and playing events like Stockton Weekender alongside artists such as Peter Hook, Public Enemy, and the Happy Mondays as well as the Split Festival with the likes of The Cribs, Maximo Park, and Dizzee Rascal. Support slots for bands such as Temples, Allusondrugs, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Demob Happy, Splashh, The Temperance Movement, The Weeks, Lola Colt, and The Voyeurs, amongst many more has only increased their reputation and stature too. Now it is the turn of the Open Visions EP to push the Kobadelta cause and as we say, it is irresistible.

a0352850419_10   Even The Odds (They Mean You No Harm) is the first track on the release and immediately brings a raw and fiery proposition to bear on ears and thoughts. Guitars and rhythms make a formidable invitation which is easily accepted, even more so when an underlying melodic lure is given clarity as the initial tempest relaxes and the expressive tones of Dom Noble come in. There is still a muggy air to the song, and a siren-esque shadowing to the track which with the exotic enterprise arising from the guitar of Alex Malliris and the keys of Jordan Robson, entices like The Doors meets The Birthday Party. The song continues to immerse and swallow the senses with its sultry almost erosive beauty, increasing its glamour as it heads towards the moment it slips seamlessly into the following Blame It All On Me.

The second track is simple bewitchment from its first caress, smouldering melodies flirting with ears whilst being stalked by the throaty bassline of Jon Marley. The ticking percussive framing and rhythmic probing of drummer Chris Malliris adds intimidation to the dark premise of the song but it is the flowing melodic seducing of the keys and more unsettling designs cast by the guitars which shape the compelling drama emotively coloured by the distinct tones of Noble. There is a touch of Bauhaus to the post punk essences swimming within the psyche rock contagion whilst the gothic rock shading again springs hints of Nick Cave and co.

A fresh shimmer flows across Maskirovka next, keys and guitars a floating haze of sonic suggestiveness whilst bass and drums create a more formidable incitement which erupts with greater intensity around the climatic crescendos posing as choruses. There is something occult like in the dark rock toxicity oozing from the walls of the song and imagination of the band, an essence breeding encroaching shadows which infest and linger in ears and psyche.

The infectiousness kicks up another level with Watch What You’re Doing, its open caress of guitar the seeds for another compelling bassline and crisply landed beats to work their addictiveness as vocals and keys bring a haunting colour. Once into its magnetic stroll, the song shows itself to be as much pop rock as it is dark rock ‘n’ roll, its catchiness as captivatingly accessible as its soaring sonic enterprise is celestially provocative and darkly fascinating.

Ithaca ventures into an even heavier soundscape but swiftly tempers some of its daunting air with an echoing effect on the ever alluring vocals and backing harmonies, whilst guitars and keys sway and smother the rhythmic spine of the song with the dance of a sonic temptress. The song is pure mesmerism but with an underlying danger which seems to incite richer flames and piercing textures to emerge in the invention of Alex Malliris and Robson.

Final track Black Pyramid, like the first, accosts ears with a slightly caustic and hazy roar of sound but is soon casting an invasive exotic atmosphere through guitars and keys. Eruptions of energy and intensity only add to the sweltering air and impact of the song, whilst melodically and vocally, there is again no escaping a reference to the Jim Morrison’s led band.

If like us you fell in love with Kobadelta’s last EPs, then lust is the outcome with Open Visions, the pinnacle of the band’s sound and invention to date. If new to the transfixing world of the band, then a wealth of dark sultry treats await.

Open Visions is released on May 1st and available via http://kobadelta.bandcamp.com/album/open-visions-ep

Kobadelta – Remain Distracted EP

kobelta

Having been enthralled by their rousing EP, The Hidden Door earlier this year, there was keen anticipation waiting for the release of its successor Remain Distracted. Both EPs come from the creative minds and resourceful imagination of UK band Kobadelta, and each provides a fascinating climate of sound and excitement to greedily immerse within. Remain Distracted takes the strengths and potency of its predecessor into new emotive and adventurous sonic flights, pushing the potential and emerging presence of the band into riveting and sultry landscapes. In some ways it is a slow burner compared to the last release but through a quartet of fiery and seductive songs, sets down the most potent and heady pinnacle from the band yet.

The release of Remain Distracted comes in a potent year for the Newcastle quintet which has seen them chosen to play Newcastle’s Evolution Emerging festival, as well as Stockton Weekender (with Happy Mondays and Public Enemy headlining) and Split Festival (with Maximo Park, The Cribs and Dizzee Rascal). Added to that there has also been a live session for BBC Introducing as well as numerous successful shows with bands like Allusondrugs. The new release adds another strong moment in the band’s year and one more irresistible enticement to develop a rich hunger over.

As soon as the sultry stroke of guitar from Alex Malliris opens up first track Siam, there is a potent temptation at work, its smouldering yet ripe lure a swift caress and announcement of the dark psychedelic invention the band is already acclaimed for. Another breath sees the hypnotic throaty basslines of Jon Marley join the evolving enticement of the guitar and the enterprising rhythmic framing of Chris Malliris. It is a glorious flame brought further to life by the mellow yet nicely raw tones of vocalist Dom Noble, all this against the already tantalising weave of melodic expression cast by the keys of Jordan Robson. It is a stunning track, elements of The Doors colluding with other whispers of bands like early The Horrors, 13th Floor Elevators, and Thee Exciters in an original fire of sound equipped with infectiously imposing hooks and grooves.

Repetition steps up next and instantly finds a heavier growl to its riffs, though that weight is not quite transferred to the crisp beats and elegant bassline. That restraint on some aspects and the mix of dark and light within the song works kobadelta epa treat all the same; its steady but feisty canter evolving through a sultry slow flight of immersive keys before breaking back with increasing tenacity in energy and attack. The Birthday Party like song is an intriguing shadow blessed proposition, not as dramatically gripping as its predecessor but growing into another absorbing and incendiary involvement of the imagination and emotions.

Its successor is less slow in gripping the passions, They Can’t Hurt Me floating in on another delicious almost sinister bassline. Its dark tone inspires a haunting essence to the minimalistic melody of the guitar and vocal croon of Noble, the merger offering a noir wrapped sultriness in presence and sound. There is a definite Cramps essence to the song as well as that of Jim Morrison and co, as well as hints of Damn Vandals and The Dropper’s Neck, but with an ingenious addiction sparking bait from bass and guitar aligned to similarly anthemic beats, the track is a slice of brilliance distinct to Kobadelta and their greatest song yet since forming.

The EP is closed by The Heretic, a sizzling sway of sonic causticity and melodic temptation driven by a swaggering rhythmic and riff crafted enterprise. As in other songs there is a prime hook which is inescapable for ears and passions, its coaxing leading the senses into the scorching haze of guitar and atmospheric heat of the keys. With the delivery of Noble again parading the song’s narrative with an unfussy but magnetically expressive texture, the song is a mesmeric consumption of the senses and a fine end to another impressive release from Kobadelta.

The band just gets better and better as evidenced by Remain Distracted ensuring whatever comes next from Kobadelta will be met with greedy anticipation.

The Remain Distracted EP is available from September 26th @ http://kobadelta.bandcamp.com/

Allusondrugs – Self Titled EP

Allusondrugs Promo 1

UK rockers Allusondrugs has been working away at the imagination and passions for the past couple of years, laying down a bait of three diverse and increasingly impressive singles which has led to a hungry anticipation for the prospect of something bigger from the West Yorkshire quintet. That sizeable offering comes in the enthralling shape of their self-titled EP; a six-track revelry for the passions and tease for the psyche. The band’s last single showed the increasing maturity and immersive expression of the band’s songwriting, now it is in full swing within the suggestive technicoloured seduction of the EP. At times it is tenderly mesmeric, in others psychedelically psychotic, and from start to finish it is a magnetic captivation to reinforce thoughts that Allusondrugs is about to ignite the British rock scene with their raw edged fusion of grunge and warmly warped psychedelic rock.

The band began in 2012, its members coming together out of the Leeds music scene. Taking influences from the likes of Nirvana, Deftones, My Bloody Valentine, and Sonic Youth into their unpredictable adventure of sound, the impressive entrance of debut single Plasters and the following twisted teasing of My Cat/Fruit of 2013 soon thrust the band into a certain underground spotlight whilst earning attention from mainstream ears. Earlier this year, third single Nervous woke up a wider expanse of attention with its masterful presence and call to the imagination. Released on Clue Records, as the singles, the new EP embraces all the essences of the individual delights that came before and casts them into a new inventive drama and virulent persuasion to unapologetically steal the passions.

With the core of the release recorded live over a week in Greenmount Studios, Leeds, the EP immediately flirts with ears and thoughts through the opening beats of I’m Your Man. It is an instantaneously coaxing sure to awaken a3102663430_10attention; a focus soon fed by sonic waves of acidic guitars and the excellent group harmonies we have already become accustomed to. The song is soon holding a bold stride as enticing melodies wrap their temptation around the rhythmic spine of the song whilst rawer rubs of riffing and the creative sonic web crafted by guitarists Drey Pavlovic and Damo Hughes dance with ears and a growing appetite for the rich invention of the song. The track though is a full seduction, the excellent vocals of Jason Moules supported by Hughes and the punch packing beats of drummer Connor Fisher-Atack alongside the rich darker tones of Jemal Malki’s bass equally as impressive and persuasive.

The band is constantly being, and understandably, being placed under comparisons to the likes of Nirvana and Soundgarden, two references easy to bring forth with the following Ted, What’s The Porn Like In Heaven?, but the opener is more Pixies-esque in its immersive and discord kissed ingenuity. It is a flavouring and spark to appear across the whole EP, though as said the second song is firmly spawned from a grunge haze. It roars from the first second, riffs climbing over ears with anthemic purpose whilst the bass of Malki simply roams with a predator’s heart into the imagination. The guitars continue to sling caustic notes and riffs with a freedom and raw intent that puts the listener right there in the studio whilst the vocals and rhythms stir up the sense with their own raucous lures. It is hard to avoid that Nirvana suggestion, especially from around the Bleach album, but there is always that undeniable uniqueness which turns it all into another invigorating original encounter.

The pinnacle of the release comes in Cherry Pie, a song which from the opening grumbling bassline sets ears and passions aflame. It is soon swiftly and provocatively striding with a determined directness as post punk like guitar stabs spear its intent. A brewing sonic potency grows around the irresistibly addictive hook of the song, its groove which would not be lost in a Joy Division intrusion bringing a hunger and resourcefulness which is as punk as it is noise rock. The song is glorious; a thrusting of rhythms and toxic invention, not forgetting that insatiable groove, which across its contagious trap has whispers of Public Image Ltd, Cardiacs, Queens Of The Stone Age, and the St Pierre Snake Invasion, yet still emerges as a distinct beast owned by Allusondrugs.

Nervous caress ears next, its swarming temptation draped in a melodic coaxing, instantly holding ears in a tight embrace to which jabbing beats set a firm punctuation. The grip relaxes soon after though as warm vocals and melodies soak the senses, their kiss aligned to the darker mood of the bass and a new vein of sonic invention. It is riveting, a mesmeric croon with the outstanding dual vocals adding a Walker Brothers like suasion within at times a tempestuously stirring emprise of evocative sound which again offers that Pixies like flavouring. An air of surf rock also adds its wash to the psychedelically fuelled beauty of the song, an elegance ignited further by the eruptions of grunge rapacity which reinforce the depth and insatiable persuasive alchemy of the song.

The release is completed by firstly the emotive climate of Sunset Yellow, a shimmering flight of melodies and haunting harmonies veined by melancholic basslines and slightly bent out of shape, distortion lent sonic ingenuity where again with that Frank Black and co leaning shows its face. It is a smoulder of sound and adventure which just gets more potent overtime, setting up emotions and intrigue perfectly for the final track Thingio. With almost grudging respect from its primal riffery and bass taunting from the first moments, the track stalks and preys on the senses, stroking them with a melodic seducing as the string manipulation of the band brings a raw rabidity to the imposing leer of the song. It is a stunning slice of musical entrapment, the entrancing vocals and weaving melodies a rein on the predacious heart of what is an exhilarating beast.

It is fair to say that we like so many were expecting big things from the band when news of the EP broke and we have not been disappointed, in fact such its might those hopes and expectations were almost an insult to its glory. Watch out UK, Allusondrugs are coming for your souls.

The Allusondrugs EP is available via Clue Records 21st July @ http://cluerecords.bandcamp.com/album/allusondrugs-ep on download and Ltd Ed CD as well as an Ltd Cassette via Pinky Swear Records.

Inlaze – Shallow

Inlaze

Still fresh around the gills, having formed in the last weeks off 2013, UK rock band Inlaze lay down a rather compelling introduction with new single Shallow. A feisty stomp of alternative rock and grunge with a just as healthy dose of punk and fuzz revelry, the song is a virulently contagious and riotously addictive brawl of sound with a temptress like seduction at its core. Like a cross between Feud and early Foo Fighters with a veining of Reuben-esque aggression and sultry Allusondrugs temptation, the band’s sound flames voraciously around ears on the single, sparking a just as keen fire in the passions.

Hailing from Wakefield in West Yorkshire, Inlaze consists of vocalist/guitarist Cauley Pritchard, guitarist Ollie O’Brien, bassist Joe Tabz, and Tom Whiting on drums. March this year saw the release of their debut two-track release Waste​/​Fall, a pair of songs which explored a more shoegaze mesmerism upon the band’s firmer rock canvas of sound. Both songs made a potent attention coaxing declaration to spark intrigued interest but it is Shallow which really ignites a hungry appetite for itself and the band ahead.

Riffs and rhythms cascade down on ears within the song’s first breath, jangling over and jabbing the senses for a feisty opening. The bass of Tabz is an instant lure too, its throaty growl contagious bait over which the chords and a3560078570_2melodies of Pritchard and O’Brien cast their acidic yet richly appetising colour. Pritchard’s smooth and energetic vocals equally flourish over the commanding rhythmic spine with the whole riveting mix forming a virulent persuasion for feet and emotions to climb upon. The song also has a raw breath to not only its production but its scuzz spiced touch which only accentuates the infectiousness of its presence, especially within the incendiary finale, it a riot of call to arms vocals and voracious urgency.

Shallow suggests that Inlaze is a band we should all be paying attention to, and we for one are not going to deny its insistence as we wait impatiently for the band’s next foray into ears.
