Die Another Day – ‘Wildfire’ (Self-Released)

Quartet Die Another Day originate from Canada, producing a hybrid style of music, branching from elements of metalcore to pop punk.

Threading together melodic and aggressive tones, for fans of A Day To Remember, Avenged Sevenfold and Invisions.

Diarchy – ‘Splitfire’ (Unherd Music)

You could perhaps be forgiven for not immediately considering India as a metal-loving nation, as there isn’t a huge amount of Indian metal bands making waves over the shores of the Über Kingdom, other than perhaps Bloodywood. However, there is a new record label from Bengaluru, Unherd Music, that is setting out to bring out the best underground and experimental rock and metal that India has to offer.

Eileen Rose – ‘Muscle Shoals’ (Holy Wreckords)

Eileen Rose is a singer-songwriter from Nashville, in the good ol’ state of Tennessee, who experienced something of what she describes as a “creative avalanche” in 2019, writing and publishing two novels and also heading down the freeway to Alabama to record this epic double album collection at the legendary Muscle Shoal studios (well, it’s title sort of gives that connection away, doesn’t it?).
