• wasteland - Rabia Sorda - The King of the Wasteland Rabia Sorda – The King of the Wasteland

    Rabia Sorda have released new single ‘The King of the Wasteland’ via Out of Line Music.

    The Mexican-German inferno-mob Rabia Sorda unleashes the primal force of wrath in an anthemic Electro-Punk-attack.

    A storm is coming. A new beginning needs the complete and utter annihilation of the old. Anger is an energy… and each generation needs its own kind of rebellion. Like a force of nature, Rabia-Sorda- and Hocico-front-berzerker Erk Aicrag unleashes a cleansing tornado of hatred. “King Of The Wasteland” combines hard Electro with raw Punk and Industrial to a modern anthem of insurgence. Bundled with b-side “Monster”, which effectively bonds retro-electronica with a punky attitude, plus three adequately infernal remixes, Rabia Sorda crown themselves kings of the wasteland and let expectations rise for the upcoming new album. read more


  • combideath - Combichrist - New Album Out Now Combichrist – New Album Out Now

    New Combichrist album, ‘This is Where Death Begins’, has now been released on Out of Line Music.

    You can listen to previews of each track on the new album here.

    The new long player “This Is Where Death Begins“ is an apocalyptic behemoth of guitars, electronica, infernal drums and dark elemental force.

    Thudding tribal drums, guitars slammed in your face like a 20-ton-weight, chopped up synth-attacks and in the midst of it Andy LaPlegua rampaging like an unrestrained demon of wrath: on their new album, “This Is Where Death Begins”, Combichrist are conjuring up a proverbial hellfire. A black monolith of unbridled aggression. Produced by Oumi Kapila (Filter) and Andy LaPlegua, with guest vocals from Chris Motionless (Motionless In White) and Ariel Levitan (MXMS) and mastered by the legendary Vlado Meller (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Slipknot, to name just a few), Combichrist have created a milestone of their career. read more

    We’ve now completed the heat stages of the Bloodstock M2TM Competition. 25 bands took to the stage in Trillians and there’s been some amazing performances. And some Donk. But mostly, amazing performances.

    As well as being the first time for the Bloodstock M2TM Competition is Newcastle, it’s also my first time at running a Battle of the Bands style competition. 10 years of this and it’s the first time I’ve really done it – and fuck – there’s been so many so so good bands who didn’t get through, it was heartbreaking. read more
