During 2014 the band have been in the process of building their own studio so they can write, record and produce more efficiently. The result is a new album due for release early 2015, They have called on producer Steve Fenton, who produced their second album “Open Your Mind” , going on early track tasters its going to be massive. NG26 released a few tracks in 2014, but they are the first to agree that they were experimenting with genres and sound and the production quality wasn’t to their standard. This album will set the new level and we are looking forward to the final tracks.


Since their inception in 2009, Midlands based NG26 have worked tirelessly in establishing themselves as genuine contenders at the forefront of the newly resurgent UK Rock scene. The 4–piece band (formed by two sets of brothers) have spent the last few years relentlessly touring the width and breadth of the country, racking up some serious miles. And also receiving massive television exposure with 3 videos played back to back over the last 9 months on Kerrang TV.
What the media are saying about NG26…………..

Metal band NG26 are signed to Holier Than Thou

Melodically furious fusion of massive metal riff’s and catchy as hell vocal’s that is all held together beautifully by a tight as a vice groove driven rhythm section that make all the plaudits this band have received for their live show all the more justified. Powerplay Magazine

superb musicianship and a real English vibe to create a masterclass in modern guitar rock. Everything works to it’s maximum – great vocals, superb drumming, classy guitar skills and beastly bass work and the production values are to die for! TheRocks

Massive riffs, huge sounding drums, intricate and impressive guitar work and some great vocals make for an album that is packed to the rafters with tunes Outstanding! 9/10

….imagine if a war-zone had rhythm like one of those musical theatre productions set in some banana republic, where the actors all dance around, choreographed to the sounof gunfire – while carrying AK-47s…. Metal Mouth.

“Heavy and melodic” Johnny Doom Kerrang!

NG26 specialise in full-throttle in your face alternative rock….The Midlands based noise-merchants have taken a leaf directly from the book of rock as written by such luminaries as Creed, Alter Bridge and Shinedown, managing to weld some awesomely memorable chorus’s with very powerful and melodic verses www.buzzjack.com

“Freak in Me” by Hangmore catchy melodies that stick in your head for days

Hangmore is a rock band that arose out of the ashes of earlier bands of various genres in Stockholm, Sweden in 2009. Since the start, Hangmore has been in constant progress. They have previously released two EP’s and in May of 2013 they released their new 7-track album Apocalips on Spotify, iTunes and Amazon while building a small but loyal following by playing local clubs and venues.

It is by far their strongest material to date. This heavy sound combined with catchy melodies that stick in your head for days makes them an unstoppable band, ready to take on the world. In may 2013 Hangmore signed with Sliptrick Records and released the new album Apocalips, recorded in Hangmore Studios.

Two tracks from the first release were featured on the albums RIOT ON SUNSET VOL. 24 and ACOUSTIKA VOL. 24 released by 272 Records out of Hollywood, California. The main track from the second EP, Soaked in Bleach can be heard on Bandit Rock 106,3 FM, one of the biggest rock stations in Sweden.

Review
“Freak In Me” and “We Rise”, are actually quite good. I personally prefer “Freak In Me” myself but that’s just because I like the chorus better than the one from “We Rise”. The vocals from each have a really good sound to them along with the guitars that are somewhat heavy, but the vocalist really balances them out by putting a smooth sound to go with the edgy guitars. The drums also give a fantastic beat and rhythm to them that persisted throughout both songs. Overall, I think “Freak In Me” is the better of the two like I said but that certainly doesn’t mean “We Rise” is bad. I even asked one of Hangmore’s members if a full album featuring these songs will release soon, and sadly he said “Due to money issues it can take awhile before we are able to record the full album.” I mean fair enough, right? The process is long and grueling especially if you don’t have easy money you can just slam down and do everything needed to record a full album. But until news of a second album comes, we can listen to these two tracks on Spotify or watch the music video for “Freak In Me” that I will put below for all of you to form your own opinions.

Hangmore’s new single ‘Freak In Me’ promises good things to come from this Swedish rock band. This is a well-crafted, catchy piece of melodic metal – I was singing along on my second listen!

Hangmore formed in Stockholm in 2009, rising from the ashes of various bands and various genres. They have built a small but loyal following playing local clubs and venues. Having previously released two EPs and a 7-track album on Spotify, Amazon and iTunes, ‘Freak In Me’ is their strongest material to date.

Grabbing your attention with a catchy riff from lead guitarist Joakim Kulo, singer Kenneth Burman’s melodic yet powerful vocals soar over the down-and-dirty guitar. Along with the powerhouse riff, a singable chorus ensures this track sticks in your head. Anchored by Sarbjit Singh on drums and Henrik Bergalm on bass, the result is a strong sound which could take this band forward to the next level. Fans of Shinedown and Stone Sour – give this a listen. If this single is an example of what’s to come from Hangmore in the future, bring it on. Score (98%) Phoenix Music online

“Human Emotion Exploitation Manual” new single from The Recordists

The Recordists Mark Fletcher vocals
The Recordists
Mark Fletcher – Voice, Chris Jones – Lead, Joel Hughes – Bass , Dan Harris – Drums

One night in Sheffield in 2013, in a decrepit bar so bleak the walls bleed and babies smoke, The Recordists were born born from having nothing in their pockets but lofty ambition. So, Mark Fletcher, Chris Jones, Joel Hughes and Dan Harris decided to do something about it, and set about scheming a plan to achieve either world domination or total destruction, and either will leave them satisfied. People have formed opinions quickly. Mudhoney meets The Stooges. Mark E. Smith fronting Sonic Youth. The Sex Pistols possessing The Pixies. And so, the songs have been penned. The gigs have been cemented. Now, history is waiting to be written. Always of the belief that you should be absolutely amazing or bloody awful, either way, they are ready for the ride, and they invite you to join them. Recklessness feels like responsibility.
