Third Island Released Official Video ‘Locked Away’ From Their Debut Album ‘Omelas’

Third Island is a post metal band formed in 2015 and based in Ireland. Drawing from a wide array of influences including doom, post rock, shoegaze, sludge, progressive and stoner rock, the band aims to create a unique sound blending huge guitar tones and dark atmospheres. The band is made up of multi-instrumentalists Liam O’Connor, John Quill, and Seamus Quaid.


In the summer of 2016 Third Island released their debut EP “Dusk”. Based on themes of nightmares and sleep disorders, the EP aims to bring the listener on a journey through insomnia and fear. The EP was well received, and followed by a number of shows well into 2017 and 2018.


Third Island released their debut album “ Omelas” on April 1st 2018. This album’s concept follows the story of “The Ones Who Walk Away From The Omelas” by Ursula K. Le Guin. Written over the course of a year, the album lyrically and musically explores the themes of the story; the joy of discovery, the pride of the city, the anger and sadness of learning the truth of their false utopia, and final isolation of the ultimatum. This is achieved through a meld of genres, shifting slowly through melancholic post-rock and progressive passages into oppressive, anxious doom and sludge.


The band are currently looking for live shows to showcase the release of the upcoming album this Autumn/Winter.

Twisted Autocracy Release New Single ‘Eat Sleep Slave Repeat’



Dublin based Thrashers Twisted Autocracy have released their first single since reforming the band in 2016. Darrel Tanfin and Sean Casserly were two of the four original members that brought on the reformation. They have since been joined by Sean Domican and Cillian O’Rourke on Bass and Drums. The lads were building away nicely in 2014 and suddenly they were gone. They’re back now with their first recorded material and more on the way! 

This track is a definite evolution their previous sound. It’s pretty much a new band that recorded this so unfair to compare really. I was a big fan of their previous releases so had high hopes for this track. 

It’s a real thrash metal anthem that I imagine will go down very well in a live environment. There’s great rasping vocals and excellent lyrics ‘Looking For A higher Power. Eat! Sleep! Slave! Repeat! Brilliance!

The track is also full of excellent lead guitar work to include a brilliant solo around the half way point and again near the end. Closes in frantic style and it’s done. A great comeback for the lads! 

I’m looking forward to their next releases as this band were always quality over quantity.

Behemoth Release New Video/Single ‘God=Dog’ New Album ‘I Loved You at Your Darkest’ Out October 05th



Extreme metal titans Behemoth have released a brand new video/single ‘God = Dog’ from their forthcoming album ‘I loved You At Their Darkest’. A European tour was also announced today so a lot happening in the world of Behemoth today. 

I’ve given this track a couple of listens and it’s a real grower. It caught me off at first as it’s a departure from their latest works. I’m sure this album will be amazing anyway as Nergal is his own harshest critic and quality control within the band is extremely high!   

Give it a spin here and come to your own conclusion! 


Legions! Our new album ‘I Loved You at Your Darkest’ will arrive October 05 featuring new single “God=Dog”. Watch the video premiere + pre-order the album here:

zhOra Release New Music Video ‘Ruthless Bastards’ Ahead Of ‘Covered In Entrails’ UK Tour



Irish hell breathers zhOra have released a music video for a new song titled “Ruthless Bastards”. The release of the track coincides with the start of the band’s “Covered in Entrails” UK Tour.

Vocalist Colin Bolger talks about the release and tour:

“We wrote the song “Ruthless Bastards” to show our love and appreciation for all the different styles of metal that inspire us and help us make zhOra sound the way it does. You’ll find hints of Death, Voivod, Cattle Decapitation, Pantera, Baroness and a few others. At five and a half minutes, the song goes through quite a few twists and turns and is by far the most representative of our current direction. One of Ireland’s most experienced and esteemed metal producers Mick Richards(Traxmix Studios) captured everything perfectly and we cannot sing his praises enough. We felt the song really called for a classic band performance video as it was written in the jam room and recorded not long after. Conor Dockery(Red Enemy, The Scratch) took the helm and he really captured the energy we conjure up when playing live. We’ve been working on new material for about a year now and we will enter the studio in September to record the follow up to “Ethos, pathos, Logos” with Aidan Cunningham(Murdock). Beforehand we will play some shows throughout the UK for our “Covered in Entrails” Tour. Sludge train is a’coming!”
