"Memoirs of a Murderer" - King 810, Album Review

“Memoirs of a Murderer” – King 810, Album Review

kingcover_1__large

Lack-lustre writing, prepare to be banished to the bland cesspit from where you managed to ascend. I’ve enjoyed far too much music coming out lately, and have been even more excited for upcoming albums (At the Gates, Machine Head etc. etc.) and was in much need of a negative review to keep myself on the right side of sanity. It was actually thanks to a glowing recommendation from Machine Headfro…

Reset String - “Ancient Future” Album Review

Reset String – “Ancient Future” Album Review

Ancient Future

The Kuwait music scene is and always has been in state of fluctuation. At times, it’s causing more explosions than a direct hit on a fireworks factory, and at others it’s drier than Gandhi’s flip-flops. I had almost given up hope on hearing ANY original recordings coming out of my country of origin (a slight exaggeration but you get what I mean). That was until I listened to the debut offering…

Heartist – Manipulate Song Review

Before we begin big thanks for Tristan for doing the 3rd day Sonisphere review mainly for me! Although I am disappointed you didn’t see Dream Theater as they are one of my favourite bands. Also I’m incredibly jealous I didn’t get to Sonisphere this year as it is by far the best organised festival I’ve ever been to. Now onto another round of the game we call, reviewing a new song!

Sonisphere 2014 - Day 3 Review

Sonisphere 2014 – Day 3 Review

So we come to the final day of

So we come to the final day of Sonisphere Festival (or at least the review, as the actual final day was nearly three weeks ago). This one’s going to be a bit shorter as:

  • I still hadn’t quite recovered from being a human barricade during Iron Maiden’s headline set the previous night.
  • I’m only really doing this last one to make Ben happy.

Sonisphere Festival 2014 - Day 2 Review

Sonisphere Festival 2014 – Day 2 Review

FINALSONIARTWORK_24JUNE_900

Sonisphere Day 2. The Saturn Stage is open for business, and so begins the apparent metal bleep test brought on by alternate staging, causing fans to trudge from one to the other between acts. Also, alternate staging is a brilliant concept, as Peter Griffin would say:

Day 2 – Maiden England

Having dressed appropriately for the day (ie: Iron Maiden t shirt) I was greeted by the familiar…

Joe Bonamassa - Different Shades of Blue Song Review

Joe Bonamassa – Different Shades of Blue Song Review

joe-bonamassa

Hold onto your hats readers; this is a rare occurrence on Mouths for War…A non metal song review! So if you are exclusively dressed in corpse paint and only listen to bands with undecipherable logos, then this review may not be up your street! But I hope you stick around anyway as otherwise you’re missing out on a seriously good track.

For those of you unfamiliar of Joe Bonamassa(shame on you!)…

Sonisphere Festival 2014 – Day 1 Review

FINALSONIARTWORK_24JUNE_900

Words cannot describe the elation that came over me when I heard that Sonisphere was returning this year, with two of music’s, let alone metal’s, biggest names headlining. Partially, because I was glad that I wouldn’t have to camp in a marsh like my previous experiences at Download Festivaland partially because this was a line-up that clearly focused more on delivering a supreme live show for…

Darkest Hour – Wasteland Song Review

darkesthour-selftitled-620x620

Hey all, new song review comin’ at ya (anyone who gets that obscure 90′s Cleopatra reference should be impressed, and well a little bit worried). And there are some big changes coming your way…all of our reviews from now on will be reviewed out of 10 and not 5! Madness I know and to any of you adverse to change we apologize, but we just feel we can give a more accurate rating with a larger scale.

Mongol Horde - Mongol Horde

Earlier this year I attended one of the best live gigs that I’ve witnessed in my natural life, and surprisingly it was not a metal gig! (SEE!! I LISTEN TO OTHER THINGS!!). Watching Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls, a former hardcore frontman turned folkie, was truly awesome, seeing how attached a man and his band could get to their work. So when there were mutterings of our boy Frankfrontin…

It looks like things have built up since we’ve been away, University Work won’t do itself (as much as we’d all like it to…good god we’d love it to). BUT, now that exams, dissertations, results and various world ending scenarios are out of the way, we’ve drawn our swords and are reading to start hacking and slashing at…
