Taking a scythe to the world of geopolitical posturing Accidental President deliver, in the title track and opener, a stinging rebuke which is coated in the leather jacket that is heavy-metal – turn up the speakers – and head-bang for the next four and almost two thirds minutes.

Climb The Attic – Not Mine – Audio

The English heavy-metal quartet Climb The Attic released the EP Another Day In Paradise on the 7th.

Climb The Attic

Climb The Attic

A stoner soaked bass guitar trudges through the room around which the percussion and the two six strings guitars, alike, wrestle to escape the tether like a feisty dog trying to slip a leash, whilst the expansive vocal calmly surveys the battle-zone.

Far from the end result being a harrowing blood-curdling wasteland it is the fact that the bass stands at such an anchor point of steadfast resilience that the music is able to display its musculature framework without disappearing in to a well of darkness.

Best heard with volume switched up loudly and space in which to flail – as an introduction the first of the four tracks is Not Mine.

It was back in 2015 that Lillyè last featured and the music has evolved considerably.

While still pulling roots from the raw power of heavy metal, In The End – the second of the eleven songs on the album, is a testament to a strong melodic structure and showcases a balanced mix of intensive riffs and spacious chord structures and when compared side by side reminds of a fine wine having been given room to breathe with the time in between having enabled Lillyè to develop a more complex approach to songwriting and delivery.

Evolve – Lillyè is available on iTunes.*

Nereis

A new name, though an established act who will be known to followers of Italian metal as in the latter half of last year the band Black Star changed their name to Nereis and the music will be familiar with its weave of the two six string guitars.

Breaking Bad is the first song to appear from Turning Point and the third of the dozen tracks on the album.

Iron Angel – Ministry Of Metal – Video

The German heavy-metal quintet Iron Angel release the LP Hellbound on the 4th of May.

The first track to surface from the album –  Ministry Of Metal will have you scrabbling for the faded leather jacket festooned in pin-badges as it spirals straight back to the late ’70s early ’80s with material that sounds as bustling with energy and melody as it did back in the day – which perhaps should come as no great surprise as back in 1980 a fresh faced group of musicians from Hamburg (Germany) emerged immersed in the influences of British heavy-metal and despite breaks, changes in both personnel and numbers in the band, appearing between 2000 and 2007 as a duo – the original vocalist – Dirk Schröder – remains to keep reigniting those initial embers and back again as a quintet – Ministry Of Metal demonstrates not only are those embers still glowing they are fully alight and burning fiercely.
