In Ohms, Deftones have delivered a futuristic masterclass in heavy alt-metal; brutal, gentle, cinematic and beautiful.
To Love Is To Live is a brave and daring album. It would have been considerably safer for Jehnny Beth to hang about in her former band and release Savages III. Instead, she has rolled the dice and come up with a double six. It’s a gamble that has paid off in spades.
Trading off the lo-fi aesthetic of Porridge Radio’s earlier releases for a richer sound, Every Bad feels like the band’s most definitive statement yet. It’s thrilling, expressive, and full of anthems that are ready to set fire to the hearts of a new legion of fans.
RTJ4 is a visceral album pulsing with anger and energy; the world is on fire but thankfully so are Run the Jewels. The duo felt important when they dropped their debut album in 2013, now they feel utterly essential.
Fetch The Bolt Cutters is a remarkable album that couldn’t feel any more timely.
It is almost their ‘Blackstar’… a contemporary rock album with depth and an emotional pull which few bands can achieve.
