KATATONIA City Burials Peaceville Records
…what we are dealing with here is a flawless piece of work one that both critics and fans of the band will refer to as a classic in years to come. Brilliant just brilliant!

MYRATH Live In Carthage earMusic
For me, this live set is the perfect introduction to Myrath and I can recommend it to both current fans and those looking for a different rock slant in equal measure. It sounds to me as though the Carthaginians were more than happy to welcome the onslaught on this occasion and thankfully this album is part of the city’s history with a joyous ending.

LETTUCE Resonate Round Hill Records
This is one of those albums that if you heard it playing in the background in some smart cafe or shop (perhaps as lockdown eases?) you would be holding up your phone with “Shazam” loaded. Eminently danceable. Unquestionably, superb.

HOUSE OF LORDS New World, New Eyes Frontiers Records
…muscled up melodic hard rock, with the “best before 1989” labels removed.

RONAN FURLONG Minerva’s Meddling Thoroughbred Music
He consistently aims to match his musical feel with related thematic content in an esoteric mix that makes ‘Minerva’s Meddling’ worthy of your attention.
**** (Pete Feenstra)
BAD TOUCH Kiss The Sky Marshall Records
They sum up how, through adding superior production and a more rounded sound to their already established strengths, Bad Touch have created easily their best work to date which could act as a springboard for them to step up into the big league.
