Somehow Jo! promo

It’s that time of the week again! Here’s a collection of some of the tracks we’ve been spinning over the past seven days – enjoy!

Somehow Jo! – Hellhole Bar
We’ve really been digging Somehow Jo! recently and one of our favourite cuts from their album Satans Of Swing, which was released earlier in the year, is their track Hellhole Bar. A gripping piece with a few nice bits of heaviness in the form of screamed vocals and clashing guitars, it’s also divided up by a more laid-back classic/old-school rock’n’roll vibe and is a fantastic little number. If you like what you hear, then find out more in our introducing piece on them here.

Orkan – Uforgjengeleg
Orkan have recently released their great new album Livlaus and if you’ve not yet heard of this band, then Uforgjengeleg is a good starting point. Featuring guest vocals from Taake’s Hoest, it’s a strong track and what’s particularly good about Livlaus is that whilst on the outside it is a black metal album, each song has its own unique style – Orkan have utilised many genres and ideas into the piece and it keeps things interesting.

Boysetsfire – One Match
Boysetsfire are currently gearing up for the release of their brand new self-titled album and have recently released a video for a track taken from it, One Match. Filmed during their very own festival in Cologne in August at a sold out 4,000 capacity Palladium, as well as during the more intimate warm-up show the day before, it illustrates the camaraderie built up by the band within the scene that they’ve helped create.

Vreid – Haust
Last week, Vreid unveiled the first cut from their upcoming album Sólverv (set to be released on October 9) in the form of track Haust, and it sees the Norwegians return to their roots with a decidedly old-school black metal sound to it. Whilst you wait for the new album, why not check out our interview with Hváll here?

She Must Burn – Possessed
We’re still really enjoying She Must Burn’s self-titled EP and if you still haven’t checked them out yet, now is your chance! Possessed is by far the strongest track of the EP – it will be rattling round your head by the time you’ve finished listening to it. It’s one of those songs that gets stuck in your head and stays there!
