Inacoma – Isn’t That True

Inacoma - Single artwork_RingMaster Review

Following the release of their self-titled debut EP, Swedish rockers Inacoma back its success up with the uncaging of new single Isn’t That True, a heavy stomp of a track which gets ears, attention, and an appetite for more easily excited. Taken from their first release, the song croons and rumbles, flirts and roars with anthemic persuasion to confirm Inacoma as a band with a very healthy future ahead of them.

Inacoma began in 2013 in Stockholm, formed by multi-instrumentalist Adam “O” Olsson who had previously played guitar in pop/rock band called No Definite Time. He subsequently linked up with vocalist Cristo Hage, a former lead guitarist in metal band The Last Providers, with the band line-up completed by drummer Jonathan Olsson. The trio soon had honed a mix of hard and alternative rock which, as evidenced by their EP and now the new single, brings feisty hooks and fiery grooves in line with whipping rhythms and ravenous riffs. It is a stirring proposal carrying something familiar yet in a presence as fresh as it is energetically creative and tenacious.

Isn’t That True is the perfect gateway onto the band’s sound, its vivacious and muscular presence virulently infectious but with a bruising intensity which is just as easy to devour. From a distance with a groove already working away, the song looms in to fill ears with flavoursome melodic and sonic tempting veined by more intimidating but no less magnetic rhythms. Like a mix of Foo Fighters and Soundgarden merged with a healthy slice of Johnny Wore Black and Creed, the track is a snarling consumption of body and appetite. It offers a design of guitar enterprise entangling riffs and hooks which are only there to seduce but with inventive unpredictability across the song and great vocal variety, it all unites in something fresh and spicy.

Isn’t That True is three minutes of prime rock ‘n’ roll from a band which you know will only get bolder, hungrier, and more compelling. Inacoma is the name, so go check out now.

Isn’t That True is released on July 6th

Spears – Little White Lights

SPEARS_RingMaster Review

Barely out of their creative wombs, UK alternative rock band Spears has been sparking some keen attention for themselves in the few months of their existence, and are bound to stir things up again with the release of their new single Little White Lights. The song reveals plenty as to the fuss emerging over the band and alone makes a very potent base for the Sheffield quartet to build upon.

With their ages ranging from 16, through frontman Rowan Scott, to eighteen, Spears is young and fresh in every aspect, and as their first single shows, also very accomplished. The video for Little White Lights caught the eye and enthusiasm of BBC Introducing, which seemingly as much as anything led to its single release, and with a successful appearance at Brighton’s The Great Escape Festival it looks like 2015 is brewing up to be a major year for the band.

Little White Lights opens with thrusts of spicy guitar, further sonic hues adding their bait within a few already flavoursome seconds before it all settles into a vibrant and mischievous stroll. Rhythms bring appealing bulk to the song from this point whilst the vocals add expressive and energetic captivation, their presence sparking perfectly off the evolving adventure in the music around them. A mellower caress cups ears before things get tangy again, a new wave like spicing enriching the inventive and off beat twists and turns of the song throughout. With a more straightforward heavier rock foraging of ears also contagiously breaking out, the track is an eventful and resourceful introduction to the band and their highly enjoyable sound.

Obviously it is only one song heard but if Spears continue in this vein, they will be gaining and exciting a great many more eager appetites before this year alone is out.

Little White Lights is released on 31st Aug via End of The Trail Records.

The Retrospectives – Confusion

The Retrospectives_RingMaster Review

If you needed any evidence that UK rock duo The Retrospectives were raised on 60’s and 70’s rock, punk, and wave, then you only have to check out the pair’s new single Confusion. Like a mix of Tom Petty and Ryan Adams with a spicier feel of Television to it, the song is a sultry flight of guitar pop ‘n’ roll which without quite setting the passions ablaze provides ears and pleasure a very flavoursome four minutes.

Hailing from Sheffield, The Retrospectives consists of guitarist Tom Galton and bassist Will Stocks. Emerging in 2004 with an infectious vintage guitar sound inspired by artists such as Elvis Costello, The Rolling Stones, and indeed Tom Petty and Ryan Adams, the band quickly courted a strong and loyal fan base through their hunger to play live and their subsequent singles. 2014 saw the pair play over 60 UK gigs just between March and July whilst over time they have shared stages with the likes of The Boomtown Rats, The Buzzcocks, Bruce Foxton’s From The Jam, Paper Aeroplanes, and My First Tooth, as well as sell out Liverpool’s famed Cavern Club themselves. Fresh from Brighton’s The Great Escape and with a headlining tour this summer in its support, the band’s new single is ready to add its charm to upcoming hot days and sultry nights.

Confusion instantly cups ears in a caress of guitar jangle and expressive vocals, crisp beats kissing their introduction at the same time. A spicy guitar groove adds its brief lure as the song slowly spreads its charm, eventually offering a rich and lively sigh of rawer rock ‘n roll before relaxing back into its initial hot smoulder. Familiar and wantonly catchy at times, the song blends nostalgia with a fresh imagination to entice from start to finish with resourceful enterprise.

Confusion is not a song to incite swinging from the rooftops in lust but it will keep luring anyone with an appetite for vintage and modern rock with a swig of Americana back for more and more; a strong success in anyone’s book.

Confusion is available June 29th through https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/confusion-single/id1013127552

New roars and creative chapters: talking Armored Saint with Joey Vera

 armored-saint_photo04_Reputation Radio/RingMaster Review

  There is no doubting that the new album from Armored Saint was one of the most highly anticipated albums of 2015, and in turn no surprise certainly to fans, that it showed the band like all the best malts, just keener and more flavoursome over the years, simply better with age. Win Hands Down is a proposition distinctly Armored Saint but ripe with stirring invention and adventurous attitude aligned to maybe their most explosive craft yet. It is beast of a release which meant we did not have to be asked twice when given the opportunity to talk with the band about their new triumph. So with thanks to bassist Joey Vera, we looked in on the making of Win Hands Down, the new freedom seemingly flowing through songwriting and invention, the band in the modern metal scene and…

Hi Joey and many thanks for taking time out to talk with us.

Let’s get straight to the chase and talk about new album Win Hands Down which is deservedly earning strong acclaim since its recent release. Do you find you have the same emotions and excitement with each record you unleash or does it vary with each release and situation?

Yeah the feelings are generally the same. We’re very proud each time we finish a record. But must say this time the fallout is somewhat more electric I have to admit.

In regard to creating the album, Jon (Bush) was quoted on the albums press release as saying, “When we started work on this record, I said, ‘Let’s pretend we are a really big band and can do armored-saint_photo03_Reputation Radio/RingMaster Reviewwhatever we want’.” Now I find it hard to believe Armoured Saint as a band and as individual musicians would allow restrictions to deflect ideas and intentions or have thoughts of being anything less than a ‘big band’ creatively. So could you elaborate on what he meant and how you used it as a spark in the creation of Win Hands Down?

We’ve pretty much done our own thing this whole time. But we always have this reminder over our shoulder that there’s some kind of expectation from us. But I think we started to feel freer from that starting with La Raza. We feel more than ever that we can do whatever we really want. But let’s be frank, there are SOME confines that we live in, but it’s a matter of how much you are willing to elaborate from those confines. It takes balls to go outside a comfort zone and we felt like we had to go past that this time.

Did you approach the writing and recording of Win Hands Down with any major differences to how for example you made last album La Raza?

Not really. The bottom line with us in the past 10 years is, just write great songs. When we were younger we were more likely to be concerned with making some kind of impression. But that’s all out the window now. We have nothing to prove to anyone.

There is a freedom in the songwriting of the new album, a more adventurous bucking of expected structures in metal and heavy rock songs. This in turn gave it a bolder energy and unpredictability which was maybe less pronounced in its predecessor; something you would agree with?

Absolutely, again, we’re at a point where we need to push ourselves and see what we’re capable of. We get very tired and restless if we feel like we are not moving in a forward direction, for better or worse.

What primarily sparked this different intent and exploration in the writing of songs?

Maybe our age? We truly enjoy making music. But we have to create something that is interesting and fun for us first. Seems obvious when I say it, but it’s fun and exciting to take chances, and horribly boring playing it safe.

Cover_Reputation Radio/RingMaster ReviewThis freedom in exploration will be continuing in future releases we can assume such the potency it gave Win Hands Down?

Well I sure hope we continue to explore what we are capable of. Otherwise, time to hang it up.

How so does the songwriting process generally emerge within the band?

They last two records have pretty much been done by John and myself. There’s just some kind of snow ball effect that happens when the two of us start writing. It’s genuine and honest and the results are great, at least to us. We take contributions from the other guys of course but the shapes have to fit inside the puzzle. It can be difficult sometimes but the guys all know what’s right.

Were there any specific inspirations fuelling the lyrical side of the album and its tracks?

Well as John writes, some of it comes from a personal place and some it reads like fiction. But in either case John has written this one wearing his heart further down his sleeve than in the past. A lot of it hits home.

Going back to that freedom point, and I guess you have already answered this but I get the feeling that the band and again you all as individuals are now in a place where you primarily do, write, and create things for you rather than when expectations of others whether it be fans, labels etc.?

Ha, you’d think I’d read ahead on these questions but I didn’t. Yes, we have to please ourselves first. We are very fortunate that we have a loyal fan base and loyal support from our label that allows us to do this.

This also allows other projects and opportunities to fit in with the band’s ‘exploits’ without difficulties I assume?armored-saint_photo02_Reputation Radio/RingMaster Review

Managing our lives is tricky these days, no matter what.

Armored Saint has been a greedily devoured and potent proposition within metal since the early eighties and over three different ‘chapters’. I wonder though that even with all the thrilling and impressive releases you have given us, hi-energy quality shows you have played, that the band is the most relaxed with itself right now and subsequently blossoming even more creatively taking Win Hands Down as evidence?

Perhaps, we are in our golden years. We’re very tired of stressing the small stuff.

Where would you say the band has most dramatically changed since its early days?

Well I guess the fact that we are more at ease now, more than ever.

And where do you see Armored Saint in the landscape of metal today?

Just recently I began to think that we’ve always been on our own island and in the past, that bothered us a little. But now we love it and embrace it.

As mentioned you have been and are involved in numerous other projects and bands, would you say this has also played a big part in the evolution of the band’s sound and in your albums consistently having a fresh and modern feel whilst retaining that distinct Armored Saint sound?

Sure. I’ve become a better player and musician all around, largely due to all of the amazing musicians I’ve have the pleasure of being with. I learn so much from each guy I jam with, I listen and learn.

What is next for Armored Saints?

We will be playing some great shows the rest of this year and into 2016. We will be shooting a new video in late summer and more tour dates. A live DVD is also in discussion.

Big thanks again for chatting with us, any last words for the readers?

We must give thanks to our fans that have followed us since day one, and since they’ve come on board. We cannot do any of this without them. Thank you for coming with us.

Rousing spirits: the Patriot Rebel Interview

Patriot Rebel Online Promo https://ringmasterreviewintroduces.wordpress.com/2015/06/19/rousing-spirits-the-patriot-rebel-interview/Shot

Having impressed and staked their place as one of the best emerging rock bands on the British music scene with debut EP Two Worlds last year, Nottingham quintet Patriot Rebel release brand new single Propaganda August 3rd. Between releases the band has reinforced and increased their stature with numerous tours and festival appearances, playing with the likes of Tesseract, Jettblack, Skarlett Riot, Cornerstone, Earthtone9, Spirytus, and Violet along the way. Having been one of many bowled over by their debut, the news of a new single meant we had to know more, so we cornered the band to talk beginnings, Propaganda, Matt Ellis and much more…

Hi guys and welcome to The RingMaster Review. Many thanks for taking time out to talk with us.

There may be still some yet to discover Patriot Rebel so can you give an introduction to yourselves?

Yeah we are a five piece hard rock band from Nottingham. Our sound is heavy and riff based with melodic vocals which is rare these days as most frontmen just get up there and make a noise as if they are clearing their throats in some cheaply made Lockets advert

Your sound is drenched in flavour and variety at its core, what are the predominant inspirations for band, its sound, and you as a musician?

I think our sound benefits from the fact that we all like very different things musically. We can regularly be overheard telling each other how shit each other’s music is as we pull up to our practise studio. But it’s all in good fun and actually when it comes together really helps the song writing process. If everyone came up with the same stuff week in week out I can imagine it would get boring pretty quickly.

I believe the band started around 2007 but is it fair to say that things truly clicked and began sparking attention when the current line-up came together a few years later?

Yeah it was 2007 that the idea came about after a couple of us had been doing a few open mic nights around Nottingham performing cover songs. As we started writing our own songs we wanted to expand and round up a drummer and bassist to get the sound we wanted and Patriot Rebel was born. We fluttered around many different band members for a good few years and it wasn’t until just before the Two Worlds EP that we finally settled with five members that really clicked together.

How did you all meet, was it solely because of the band or is there history before and away from it?

Two of us were good friends from school and that was why we started doing the open mic nights. We were out in Nottingham most nights getting drunk and stumbling onto various karaoke bars before we decided to find a guitar and do it properly. We advertised on various websites and even scattered some posters around the local rock bars for band members. We were actually surprised at how quickly we managed to throw a band together but it rarely stuck until the final members were found. It can be very difficult to find five lads that can all get along and have the same sense of humour but we did and it’s been great ever since.

With those early days of the band; what was the spark predominantly bringing Patriot Rebel to life?

Mainly alcohol…..and of course it was all new to us. Playing at just a local pub felt as if you were playing something much bigger and just a group of 15 people felt like a crowd. It was very exciting to play your own music to people that wanted to listen and that’s why we do it still now today.

Patriot Rebel_Reputation Radio/RingMaster ReviewWe discovered you through your excellent debut EP Two Worlds in 2013, a show stopper it is fair to say without blowing smoke up your egos ha-ha. August 3rd sees the release of new single Propaganda, how have you filled the time between releases?

We have been gigging the Two Worlds EP all over the UK. Edinburgh was a particular favourite of ours not just because of the show but the experience. We’ve modified an old transit van into a makeshift tour bus and it has made touring much more enjoyable than packing into numerous cars. Although sleeping in it wasn’t the best experience. It was very snug and it’s difficult to look each other in the eye after you’ve been ‘spooning’ the night before.

The new song is a beast of an anthem for ears and emotions, and a potent evolution to that first release. Where are the biggest differences between both encounters?

Well actually we have cheated a bit because Propaganda was recorded as part of Two Worlds. We are basically releasing it as a thank you to everyone who has supported Two Worlds and made a video to go with it.

Have you changed any specific elements in songwriting since the first release or is it just an organic progression fuelling your new endeavours?

Our song writing is always done on a feeling. If we feel like we are struggling to come up with something we tend to leave it be. Our best stuff tends to flow immediately and just clicks straight away. Sometimes we revisit old stuff and that works too.

Can you give some background to the lyrical side of the single?

It was written about an old work colleague of mine who would always try to belittle the younger lads and shit stir just to cause trouble. So Propaganda was my way of looking at it. People generally presume its war related but it’s not in the slightest…Although it’s good that some people take out of songs what works for them.

And musically any particular sparks brewing up elements?

Not so much musically. We tend to come up with various parts and then write the lyrics over the top. It’s not often the lyrics/song come first. But the music certainly matches the mood lyrically.

You recorded Two Worlds with Matt Ellis (Black Spiders, Terrorvision, Skarlett Riot), and the same again with Propaganda?

Yes definitely. Matt is brilliant at what he does. He doesn’t just record what we play; he actually makes suggestions and has ideas of how certain things could be done differently. I think that it is important to have this whilst recording. Sometimes a non-biased ear can help the way things sound without actually changing much at all.

He seems to have the touch in luring out every essence of your sound and its nuances?

He literally does it exactly how we imagine it should sound. We’ve used a couple of other producers over the years and none have come close to the sound quality that Matt gives us.PatriotRebel live_Reputation Radio/RingMaster Review

People might imagine one song would be a quick in and out of the studio to record and perfect. Give us the real insight to the single’s creation and journey.

To be fair Propaganda was quite quick in relation to some of the other songs. It has quite a raw sound and sometimes too much production can kill a song. It went really well but yeah recording can sometimes be quite tedious especially for the vocalists who have to wait until the end.

Is Propaganda the teaser for bigger things ahead too; another EP or album maybe?

That’s exactly what it is. We are booked in with Matt again at Axis studios for late July where we will be recording our next EP. We have a couple of potential titles for it but I’m afraid that’s classified information at this time. We will be working on more videos, merchandise and tour dates to coincide with its release which we hope will be early 2016

You said the song was recorded around the EP but does it still offer a real hint of your new songs or are there plenty of new surprises to anticipate?

A bit of both really. We will always have the unmistakeable Patriot Rebel sound but we have worked on new things which we think are sounding great. We are really excited about some of the new stuff and we think you should be too.

You mentioned it earlier so tell us about the video accompanying Propaganda.

It’s basically a mixture of band performance and storyline. We worked with our friend Chris Clough on this one and we are glad we did because his work is excellent…Really professional record quality. We also got the help of model Katie Wainwright to accompany the storyline sections of the video where she takes newspaper clippings and sticks them on the wall to create a twist at the end. We used Katy because what’s the point of making a video without a girl in a corset and short skirt right?

patriot rebelHow was that experience in the making compared to the recording of songs?

It was really enjoyable for us; we had a great time making the video. We have done videos before but not to this quality. The last one we did was just taken from various live performances so it was an experience for us to do it properly. We shot the video on two separate occasions and the second part was done in the basement of a pub which is always good. The first part which was the band performance was actually shot at my workplace. Which is weird for me but it came out really well.

You touched on the next release but anything else ahead for Patriot Rebel and its fans you can share with us?

We’ve got plenty in the pipeline, some of which we can’t reveal yet. But we will be back gigging very soon. In fact we have a show in Nottingham as main support to Jett Black on the 29th August. It’s part of Degeneration fest and will also include The Treatment so it’s a great line up.

Once again big thanks for chatting with us. Any words or thoughts you would like to leave us with?

Always a pleasure…We would just like to thank your readers and anyone else that has supported us over the years. Cheers

Spiraling Suns – Accidental Truths

spiraling-suns-color_Reputation Radio/RingMaster Review

Formed in 2012, US rockers Spiraling Suns make their formal introduction through debut album Accidental Truths and an accomplished and enjoyable offering it is too. Though it does not quite set a blaze going with its wares, the encounter certainly brews up a healthy appetite for the trio’s inventive and potential soaked sound. It is full of well-written songs embraced in a matching enterprise of sound; they are tracks which do not overwhelm but definitely leave strong satisfaction a firm outcome.

Hailing from Ann Arbor, Michigan, Spiraling Suns consists of vocalist/guitarist Nick Petroff, bassist Adam Meindel, and drummer Rob Avsharian. The band name was chosen to reflect “a creative interest in the mythology of ultimate truth and the far-reaching effects of paradigm shift”, a meaning further explained in the album’s press release by “We often assume the permanence of objects and concepts in a universe in which continual change appears to be the rule. If the Earth fell out of orbit during some unexpected cosmic event, the Sun might appear (in our remaining moments as tiny beings on a small solar satellite) to spiral from the Earth.” Sound wise Spiraling Suns create an imaginative brew of progressive and heavy rock but also embraces just as potent grunge flavouring, indeed at times sound and vocals especially carry a good Soundgarden essence.

The release opens with One Less Thing, drums making the initial invitation before strokes of guitar and bass collude with beats in a strong invitation for ears. It is not a dramatic or startling start but easily has attention awake and ready for the melodic and vocal colouring quickly joining and wrapping its tidy frame. The voice of Petroff, as his guitar enterprise, almost winds around ears, binding them with resourceful and magnetic persuasion as the bass of Meindel offers a pulsating groan. The track remains an easy going and pleasing slice of rock ‘n’ roll, its gait and energy controlled but openly enticing before being matched by the following tempting of The Skin That Sleeps.

cover_Reputation Radio/RingMaster Review   The second song has a greater tenacious start, riffs and bass hooks an instantly keen and lively coaxing; in fact they are almost dancing in ears such their adventurous and vivacious enterprise. Avsharian punctuates their flair with well-timed and imaginative rhythms, it all providing a thrilling beckoning to body and emotions. As across the whole album, the song does not surprise with any genre challenging explorations but its familiarity comes with an enjoyable strain of unpredictability.

The gentler melodic caress of Like Clouds comes next, its opening a mesmeric shimmer of evocative sound and endeavour. Things settle into a more familiar landscape once the song hits its sauntering stride, satisfying fully as it feeds expectations. Vocally Petroff continues to impress but already there is a lack of diversity in his delivery which at times calls out for the same kind of twists and turns found in the surrounding music of song and album. Nevertheless the track hits the right spot before The Thing Is with its bluesy air and the fiery Tomorrow Burns add their substantial and highly pleasing persuasion to the lure of Accidental Truths. The second of the two songs especially grips the appetite with its persistent swagger and spicy stroll, the bass of Meindel a rich compelling enticing throughout.

     Under My Sun from a spatial ambience slips into another captivating walk through colourful melodic terrain and skilfully sculpted textures, that Chris Cornell and co feeling especially ripe as the song explores its narrative and boundaries.

The album is brought to a close by firstly Silence Is Sweeter, a musty slice of blues kissed rock ‘n’ rock working successfully away on feet and thoughts, and lastly the excellent In My Wake. The last track is the best on the album, its presence and imagination the boldest proposal in sound and imagination within Accidental Truths and stealing a fair chunk of the plaudits because of it.

There is a certain spark missing across Accidental Truths to stop it exploding in ears as it suggests it will whilst the great ideation within songs very often just does not go far enough, seeming to avoid going with the same boldness as shown the final track. Bottom-line though is Accidental Truths lures repeat attention and gives strong enjoyment, making a very enjoyable base from which Spiraling Suns can expand and evolve from.

Accidental Truths is available now via Laughing Apsis @ http://www.spiralingsuns.com/album/247220/accidental-truths

Tess Of The Circle – Love Is The Drug That You Crave

Tess of the Circle pic 1_ Reputation Radio/RingMaster Review

Ahead of their new album Amplify due this coming September, UK band Tess Of The Circle release new single Love Is The Drug That You Crave, and a finer temptation to explore the band’s impending full-length you could not wish for. The song shows just why acclaim and potent attention has been given to the band through its previous releases but with a sound hinting at brand new adventures ahead.

Tess Of The Circle is a British Independent Collective based around the songs and music of singer/songwriter/guitarist Tess Jones and his circle of friends, a group of live and album musicians. The project began in 2013 and quickly released debut album Thorns, a collection of songs from Jones bred from a mix of 70’s electric rock with acoustic guitar riffs and enterprise around biographical lyrics. The release was quickly embraced and praised from fans and media alike, seven of its tracks played on BBC RADIO 2 amongst many national stations, leading to 11 BBC RADIO sessions last year. If the Gavin Monaghan produced Love Is The Drug That You Crave is an example of the wares within Amplify, the band can expect more of the same we suggest upon its release, certainly plenty of close and eager attention.

Tess of the Circle artwork_ Reputation Radio/RingMaster Review     Love Is The Drug That You Crave is themed by “how we often mistake temporary objects and fixations for love. It suggests that we just see these things for what they are; a wish to feel connected” and straight away the great tones of Jones are gripping ears within swathes of guitar and percussive coaxing. Swiftly though, the song twists into a blazing stroll of fiery rock, that seventies breeding a rampant essence within guitars and keys yet equally there is a feel of varied decades within its spicy grooves and flirtatious hooks. The bass of Ben Drummond is a great shadow and grounding to the roaring flames of guitar from Jones and Lee Clifton, but never dulls their incitement with his string’s resonating throaty tones; it all provoked and stirred up further by the rapier like swings of drummer Paul Stone and the potent vocal incitement of Jones.

Hints of bands like The Cars and The Motors nudge thoughts alongside those of Steve Miller Band and the John Butler Trio, but ultimately the roast of a hot rock ‘n’ roll is something pretty much distinct to Tess Of The Circle.

Love Is The Drug That You Crave is a song which simply rocks the listener with an irresistible swagger and passion to which you can only say roll on Amplify.

Love Is The Drug That You Crave is out now on most online stores with Amplify scheduled to be released September 2015.

Upcoming live dates:

June 19th – Acoustic Festival, Uttoxeter

June 25th – 28th – Glastonbury Festival.

July 11th – Bodfest, Horse & Jockey, Bodicote

August 14 – 16th – Pandora Festival, Buckinghamshire
