Music has always been known as the great healer, and the world is at a stage presently where we need music more than ever.
If it’s not COVID it’s floods, or war, or petrol hikes… you name it, we have been through it in the last 2 years, and we shall endure!
Cancer Bats are doing their best to take our minds off world events with the impending release of their new album, Psychic Jailbreak. Frontman Liam Cormier joined HEAVY during the week for an entertaining chat, which gave the Bats the nod for featured cover story this week.
We also spoke with Ghosts Of Sunset and Jizzy Pearl’s Love/Hate about their new albums, plus we chat with Australia’s SkinInc about their latest track.
There’s plenty of new music from VRSTY, Movements, Lindsay Schoolcraft, Any Given Day, Rage Behind, Suasion, Wardruna, Coreleoni, Incite, Belushi Speed Ball, Anvil, Oceans, Conjurer, Schandmaul, Paddy And The Rat and Lord Of The Lost, plus we bring you up to date news and tour information from Black Rheno, Fender, King Parrot, All That Remains, Space Of Variations, Carnage Fest and HEAVY’s upcoming 10th birthday celebrations at 11 Dive Bar.
Metal Mistress returns, this week focussing on Scott Ian and his time with Anthrax, Stormtroopers Of Death and more.
Our review team runs through the new albums from Meshuggah, Desert Clouds and 8 Kalacas before HEAVY Cinema keeps the ball rolling with interviews with the stars of The Last Possession and Loveland, as well as the latest trailers from Puss In Boots:The Last Wish, Ms Marvel and Sonic The Hedgehog 2.
We review Dog, Masquerade, Beyond The Wasteland, Turning Red and Fresh and if it’s free stuff you want, check out our giveaways for Sheltered and Masquerade.
That should keep you out of trouble for a bit, but when you’re finished, make sure you look up your local gig guides and head out to check out some live music.
It’s one of the few things left pure and good in this world…
Until next week, stay HEAVY
