Listen to ANTIER

Antier play post-rock. But the Barcelona boys don’t do it quite like anyone else. A defiantly Spanish, proudly poetic, thoroughly dynamic duo, they resist clichés and explore the sound with energy, invention and art. Capable of making a thunderous noise and heartbreaking whisper with equal intensity, their 2016 debut album ‘De la Quimera, el Dolor’, is essential listening.

Listen to HOLY+GOLD

Holy+Gold is what happens when former members of Norma Jean and The Chariot realise just how much they have left in the tank. This is itchy, scratchy, squirming post-hardcore that wants to get in your head and under your skin and try to prove it’s the best thing the men behind it have ever done. Killer.

Listen to VOYAGERS

Voyagers are not hip. Voyagers are not cool. Voyagers play rock music, about as unfiltered as you can get it. But, like Thrice or Sparta or Cave In before them, the Washington State outfit are doing it with brains, brawn and audible honesty. This is music to chop wood to.

Listen to LESSER GLOW

It’s rare to describe post-metal or doom as immediate. But it takes mere seconds to know that Lesser Glow stand out from the crowd. Built on a familiar foundation of titanic riffs and hoarse screams, the Boston quintet also incorporate serpentine guitar lines, smoky clean vocals, hypnotic melodies, and dark ambience to produce a noise that’s as compelling as it […]

THRICE return with ‘The Grey’

At the beginning of the year, Moderate Rock predicted that Thrice would return. Now, two years after ‘To Be Everywhere Is to be Nowhere’ put an end to their hiatus, the California quartet look to be firing into life. Play new single ‘The Grey’ below or over at the recently redesigned thrice.net, it’s an upbeat, chunky number that’s giving me […]
