FALLEN TEMPLES

 

Adam Vaughan - Guitar/Vocals

Joe Lewis - Bass/Vocals

Joe Stirland – Drums

 

 

South Wales hard rock band Fallen Temples consist of two-thirds of previous (and now defunct) PP&P band Tidal.  

 

They formed in the summer of 2015 “with an appetite to play riff and groove laden hard rock, giving the nod to the old school heaviness created by Black Sabbath and brought into modern day by bands such as Rival Sons, Clutch and Soundgarden.”

 

Amongst the gigs they’ve played are Planet RockStock 2016 and a headline performance at Welsh festival Kingsfest.  In a previous incarnation they’ve also shared the stage with the likes of  NWOBHM royalty Diamond Head, (Motorhead’s) Phil Campbell’s All Star Band, Feeder and Revoker.

Formed in 2014 in Cardiff, Nuclear Lullaby have played a number of gigs and festivals in their short existence and produced an album, Keppoch 59, with a variety of songs under the umbrella ‘Alternative Rock’ but which all have their own unique vibe.  For example, track one ‘Upgrade’, would suit grunge fans and would not sound amiss on a Nirvana album whereas track three ‘Zeus’ has a late ‘60s/early ‘70s psychedelic vibe.  

 

Team the above mixture of grunge and psychedelia with catchy riffs and seductive vocals and that sums up Nuclear Lullaby in just a few words, oh and throw in the word 'addictive' as well.

 

I absolutely love both these tracks, they are on repeat on my mp3 player - but don't take my word for it, take a listen via the Soundcloud links below.

 

The band have a number of gigs coming up in the next few months, all of which are listed on their website and Facebook page, so if you get the chance then do go check them out.

From Cardiff, South Wales, Ravenbreed are (as at the beginning of February 2018) a relatively new band who formed several months ago in mid 2017.    

 

They have just released their first single, ‘Insult’ (video below), which is a track from their three track debut EP ‘Hollowed’ which is due for release on February 28th (2018).

 

To quote the band themselves:

“With influences from Alice in Chains, Foo Fighters, Alter Bridge, Pantera, Motorhead, Guns N Roses to name a few, the band's influences, based in rock and metal, come together to form a hard rock sound for people who like guitar bass and drums, and melodies for people who like to sing their hearts out at shows”.  

 

If you like what you hear on their track ‘Insult’, keep an eye on their social media  pages for news of  any forthcoming gigs.
