Periphery represents the vanguard of addictive, chaotic, challenging and cathartically inviting heavy music for the modern era. The triple-guitar attack and rhythmic dexterity of Periphery has won them devoted adherents across underground subcultures, regardless of whether those fans were weaned on the passion-fueled sounds of the Vans Warped Tour or the progressive rock of Rush.
Luciferous is a rich and unrelentingly punishing work of mature song craft. ENTERPRISE EARTH remains rooted firmly in death metal; with flourishes of low-tuned riffage to make nü-metal devotees and industrial freaks sweat; a flirtation with blackened thrash; and their maiden voyage into classical style acoustic guitars.
7"vinyl singles box set of nine previously unreleased recordings from the era during which Space Oddity was first conceived.
Recorded in just one month, Circa Waves renew their blossoming co-producing relationship with Alan Moulder (Foals, The Killers) for an album that's creatively unshackled and refuses to stay still. What's It Like Over There? fuses the visceral thrill of rock music with a slick pop sound, brimming with themes of modern ennui, emotional fragility and the inside-outs and upside-downs of relationships. While the anthemic ''Movies'' will appeal to the band's long-standing fanbase, the likes of ''Sorry I'm Yours'' and ''Be Somebody Good'' see Circa Waves experiment with a new progressive sound that will surprise and delight in equal measure. A union of emotional depth and intricate songcraft, What's It Like Over There? will become an album their fans can't live without. Circa Waves have embraced the mindset that they're allowed to create whatever they want and the results are stunning.
Even inside Genesis, Mike Rutherford’s forte has always been his melodic songwriting. With the successful side project MIKE + THE MECHANICS, the artist managed to find a further way to express himself working with other composers and different teams. Since 1985, Mechanics became a brand in their own, releasing seven albums, selling more than 10 million records, launching many hit singles and touring worldwide with a two frontmen led band. The sudden death of one of the original singers, Paul Young, needed a period of adjustment but, after one experimental album with Paul Carrack as the only vocalist, Rutherford changed the face to the band recruiting two new singers, Andrew Roachford and Tim Howar. While the album including their most famous song, “The Living Years,” celebrates its 25th anniversary, Mike + The Mechanics are still hitting the road, to the pleasure of the fans worldwide
