If there’s a band that brings the heavy. It’s FStS, these guys are absolutely killing it.


Lastelle have such an emotionally involved and driven sound that is so unique amongst the UK metal scene right now. Truly captivating.

Silent Planet

Taking a moment to look outside of the UK, Silent Planet are one of the best bands out there speaking about important issues and blending it with incredible grooves and clean sections.

As Everything Unfolds

A incredible example of perfectly blended melodic post-hardcore emerging from the UK. Their most recent album “Within Each Lies The Other” is one of Nathan’s favourite albums of the year.


Their debut album was absolutely blistering from back to front and has been on repeat since dropping it! We can’t wait for more from them and to hopefully see them on the road in the future!


This band have cemented their place within all of our playlists. Since they released “Rule Of Nines” they have grown from strength to strength becoming one of the most exciting bands in metalcore right now.
