Mutoid Man – Melt Your Mind (Sargent House) It’s Mutoid Man! Twirling a guitar around your head, air-drumming until your wrists fall off; it’s all part of the experience spliced together by Koller, Brodsky and of course, the master that is Nick Cageao. Melt Your Mind is just over 2 minutes of speed-thrash-excellence, that’s hella melodic in places (seriously, a lot …

 Mastodon – Show Yourself (Reprise) I don’t know about you, but I love that Brann Dailor is slowly becoming the frontman of Mastodon. Okay, so he’s not really, but ever since he started singing from Crack The Skye onwards, I’ve found their stuff utterly terrific. Remission/Leviathan purists are going to HATE this then, but fuck ’em, because Show Yourself, is …

  Darko – Hiraeth (Bird Attack/Lockjaw Records) We’ve talked a bit about Darko before on Keep It Fast, a band who stalwartly thunder through their own brand of melodic punk with frank and earnest pedal to the medal power. For those who love the turbo-charged energy of Gnarwolves, you’ll dig Hiraeth, a raucous, 2 minutes and 40 seconds of thrash-pop excellence. …
