New highlights

Avenged Sevenfold – Nobody

The bats have returned to the belfry. Or something. Anyway, what we're saying is, Avenged Sevenfold are finally back with new stuff. And it's epic. More, plz. And they're probably glad we made that request, because there's a new album coming down the pipes. Awooga!

Pupil Slicer – Blossom

Back in November, Pupil Slicer excitedly told us just how bananas their forthcoming second album's going to be. “It’s dialled up to 11," Kate Davies said. "There's weirder riffs, harder breakdowns…” And here, a massive chorus straight from the early-2000s British rock scene. Weyyy. One of the metal albums of the year incoming.

Scene Queen – 18+

The royal highness of Bimbocore, Scene Queen, is on fiery form on this new one calling out sexual abuse in the music industry. "Predatory behaviour is something that has been happening in the scene for years and still happens now," she explains. "When I left the scene around 2015, because it no longer felt like a safe space for women, I swore that if I ever came back I would make it my mission to set fires until it was safe." Get on this, and keep your hands to yourself.
