Metallic Taste Of Blood – Doctoring The Dead

Published on 12th June 2015 | by Bob Mulvey

Published on 11th June 2015 | by Roger Trenwith

Snarky Puppy - Sylva

Snarky Puppy with The Metropole Orkest – Sylva

Published on 28th May 2015 | by Tom Gillitt

Complex, evocative, challenging but ultimately satisfying, such is the summarised description I would impart on the new release by Snarky Puppy, entitled Sylva, just released globally on the GroundUP Music/Ropeadope Records label. To those unfamiliar with... Read More

Magic Pie – King For A Day

Published on 27th May 2015 | by Leo Trimming

King for a Day is the latest impressive release from Norwegian Symphonic/Progressive Rock band Magic Pie following on from 2011’s well-received The Suffering Joy. This new album develops their usual style and themes with powerful flourishes,... Read More
