05/05/2004
'Diesel Dog Sound' by The Temple is out now. "...this is one of the most intense, intelligent records you'll hear all year. Their passionate delivery is compelling, but what makes this so striking is the way they add spice to the tried and tested heavy rock formula, peppering pounding drums, frenzied guitars and chunky riffs with accordians and latin rythms. It's a bizzare combination, but it works to magnificent effect" KKKK/5

Hope to include more details on these items soon



01/04/2003
Johnny Truant released their album 'The Repercussions Of A Badly Planned Suicide' at the begining of the year to fantastic reviews:

'...This is fervently kaleidoscopic noisecore, and it’s f**king stunning. On ‘Consider Us Dead’, Johnny Truant roar from the starting blocks like an enraged cheetah, before abruptly curtailing the tangled web of riffs and rhythmic tics and descending into a sonic swamp of blackest ambience...' Kerrang KKKK/5

'...Johnny Truant are ready to kick their peers into touch with their self-styled display of evenly-distributed guitar phrases that litter defiant epics, neatly ripping your head off (and making no apologies afterwards)...is a sterling first-time effort that will see them facing the consequences for a long while yet.' Rock Sound 9/10



01/01/2003
Palehorse's new album 'Gee, Aint That Swell' on Dry Run Recordings released to great reviews: "Now you can feel the force of the horse in the comfort of your own home. You know you're onto a winner when the low end rumble is enough to shake your house to its very foundations" Rock Sound 8/10.

"Combining elements of doom. sludge and bug-eyed noisecore to create a devestating. foundation shaking whole, Palehorse have stumbled across something defiantly original and definitely thrilling. More than capable of dropping into passages of delicate, Mogwai-style subtlety (as on the lilting acoustic interlude 'Mustnt Grumble), the band are certainly no, ahem, one trick pony. ...the voice in your head will tell you that this is something special. ... Palehorse are so monstrous, so relentless, so joyously f**king violent that they demand not just your attention but your devotion as well...." Kerrang KKKKK/5

"Most magnificently maverick band in the UK" Terrorizer 8/10

Mendeed launch their new ep with a lavish launch party in Glasgow

01/10/2002
4ft Fingers have released their second album on Golf Records: "Superior melodic punk - and british to boot.... establishing the quintet somewhere near the front of this particular genres field.... 4 ft Fingers stand out thanks to the quality of their tunes and an uncompromising attitude that has more in common with hardcore... a very good album indeed" KKKK/5 kerrang

Gorerotted have rereleased 'Mutilated In Minutes' on Relapse Records, and receiving good reviews again in kerrang and metal hammer



01/07/2002
"Brutal. That's the best word to describe the debut album from this uncompromising quartet... the band's intensity doesn't let up, as grinding downtuned guitars and serrated riffing play British bulldog with crushing basslines and fierce drums... " Metal Hammer.

"The first thing that strikes you about Mindjuice's debut is just how damn heavy their sound is. Like a ten tonne hammer the quartet's amalgam of the frantic hardcore of say, Prong circa 'Primitive Origins', mixed up with the crunch of fellow label mates Landmine Spring, is shockingly brutal. The crisp production (courtesy of Dave Chang) pushes enough groove into the equation to keep the moshers happy and no doubt the pits could be particularly awesome in a live setting..." Rock Sound

Mindjuice 'Practice Dying Every Day' Loudspeaker Records

"Another potent birth from the womb of Dave Chang in the form of UK mettallers Pain Control. And... their debut album 'Subvert' is a refreshingblast of balls-out metal... (with guest appearance from former COF keyboard player Les Smith)... The playing is tight, the production is good..." Rock Sound. Pain Control, 'Subvert', Demolition Records



01/06/2002
Pain Control have released their new album 'Subvert' on Demolition Records in Europe, UK release to follow shortly



01/05/2002
"British nu-metal (or whatever you want to call it), has always had that nasty, raw edge which gives the angst and aggression a more genuine feel to it. JOR are a perfect example of how British bands do the aggressive new metal thing with their gritty, harsh riffs and vocals that sound like the result of sandpaper being dragged over testicles.... " 4/5 Rock Sound. JOR, 'Blunt', Loudspeaker Records

"...JOR play hard hitting music with relentless rage. Riffs, beats, blasts and roaring vocals, all mixed up with a spot of old school brutality, 'Blunt' is the perfect antidote to indie rock..." Metal Hammer



01/03/2002
Jor release 'Blunt' on Loudspeaker records: "A strikingly confident quintet.. they combine Helmet's staccato riffage with Snapcase's stripped down no-nonsense onslaught and a rawness reminiscent of early Machine Head, for a no-frills head on attack.... exactly what a hardcore record in 2002 should be: vicious, to the point and straight for the throat. With the ever-able Dave Chang at the production helm, Jor have provided yet another wake up call to the wealth of British talent brewing throughout the underground. Brutality to put a smile on your face" Kerrang KKKK/5

Spine get some more good press for their new album: "What they've come up with is a confident marriage of Earth Crisis'punishing metalcore, and a melodic vigour that harks back to the glory days of agnostic front... All the while keeping their proposition suitably apocolyptic in tone, 'Restoration' is unafraid to embrace solutions which are complex as well as full-on. Temperamental, pissed-off hardcore to keep you on your toes. Which you need, oh yes" Kerrang KKK/5



01/02/2002
"Spine certainly know how far to turn the volume knob up. 'Restoration' doesn't flow from your speakers, it's more of a full on sonic boom. Now, it's the easiest thing in the world to be loud, but with a sense of melody is another kettle of halibut altogether... you can feel the sweat and angst in the songs, and the fury can, at some points, leave you breathless...It's a joy to hear a british band sounding this good" Rock Sound 4/5. Out now on Loudspeaker Records

I've been invited to guest on Total Rock radio (www.totalrock.com / sky channel 885), on the 'Genre Schizo' show with Andy King at 9pm on Sunday 24th Feb.

Loudspeaker have released a sampler compilation 'Speech Lessons For The Dumb' which includes tracks from Jor, Spine and Landmine Spring



01/01/2002
Matter's new album 'Blackleg' continues to bathe in critical acclaim; "The clue is in the titles: 'Stabbed'; 'Arsonist'; 'Spastic'; 'Bad Loser'. If they don't tell you what a miserable, malicious migraine of a band Matter are, then nothing will. 'Blackleg' is matter's first album, and it hurts...it's jarring, uncomfortable, anti-social, pissed off and pissed up. Everything that the best music should be, in other words" Kerrang, KKKK/5

The Last Drop (formerly Shallow) have releases their new album 'Where Were You Living A Year From Now' on Rise Above Records.

"On last years debut [not done by Dave Chang!] the quartet lacked a decent producer ... and tended to let the songs ramble just that little bit too much. This time around however, both complaints are rectified. Dave Chang has sat in the production chair, while songs like 'Talons Of Weng Cheng', 'Sheer Dementia' and 'Cheese On Toast' forcibly display the band's distinctive amalgamation of stoner riffs and hardcore blasts..." Rock Sound

"BY putting an alternative rock slant on their fuzzed out grooves, Last Drop sufficiently stand out from the bong fried pack. In fact they sound like the bratty problem child of a marriage between Kyuss and Helmet - with Bleech era Nirvana as a godfather...Excellent stuff, check this out ASAP" Kerrang KKKK/5

Undergroove records have re-released Charger's 'Fuzzbastard' ep, remastered and with additional live tracks and other stuff.



01/12/2001
Matter's 'Blackleg' (Undergroove Records) receives accolade: "...the band plunge into a sound so utterly horrible that it'll make you sh*t blood. ...the sound Matter dole out can be best compared to the sort of chaos you'd expect if those Satanic rogues Deicide joined ranks with British heavyweights Napalm Death while being egged on by Medulla Nocte. ... scatty and chaotic yet devestatingly brutal at the the same time. An album so ugly it should come with a paper bag for you to cover it up with!" 41/2 /5

CapDown receive another rave review for 'Pound For The Sound': "...Tim's awesome drumming is a bedrock of driving beats and subtle accents, providing the foundation for Boob's smooth and immaculate bass. Keith's guitar is both powerful and melodic, filling either role with equal eagerness, and working brilliantly with Jake's frenetic, confident and versatile vocals. His saxophone is bloody good too, and the whole lot is so well produced (without sounding 'well produced', if you get what I mean) that they leap the hurdle of recreating their fearsome live sound in the studio perfectly (where many other bands have fallen)...This opens up a whole new perspective on what it's possible to achieve on a small independent label, with just a modest budget, and a shitload of talent." 8/10 Metal Hammer



01/11/2001

To clear up some confusion over the recent Terrorizer covermount error: a track appeared on the cover-mount by the band 'Helgrind' with production credits erroneously given to me. The track on the cover-mount was a live track which I have never worked on, and apparently doesn't sound very well produced. I have worked with the band when they were called 'Cerberus', and they are still using these recordings as Helgrind. I believe that these tracks are available on the first Helgrind release, alongside the live tracks.

Allegedly, one of the tracks that I did produce will appear on the forthcoming covermount of Terrorizer!



01/10/2001
Shallow have changed their name to "The Last Drop". Their new album 'Where Will You Be One Year From Now' is due out January 2002

Capdown's 'Pound For The Sound' entered the CIN Independent Album chart at number 43.



01/09/2001
Capdown released 'Pound For The Sound' on Household Name. "..this time round they're more mature and a little slicker around the edges. They're still as hard, fast and political as you'd expect, and they remain experts in the art of mixing up a wide range of genres effortlessly, but now [they] have a more varied and evenly paced sound. One blast of shouty intensity after another and totally unique. Damn near perfect." Rae Alexander, Kerrang, KKKK/

Hangnail 'Clouds In The Head' received a great review in Metal Hammer: "their second album is classy, classic, inspired and enormous - a soundscape built not on cliches of the stoner fuss, but solid values - from frenetic riffing to riffing melodies and cool hand groove.." Malcolm Dome 8/10

Landmine Spring have been getting more good coverage, "This band ooze charisma with a huge 'fuck you!' attitude, and, coupled with their flawless delivery, makes 'Elephantine' a fairly exhilarating debut." Daniel Lane, Metal Hammer, 8/10. "The measured regime of 'Tarred And Feathered' showcases perfectly the delicate mix of intensity and melody and thunderous grooves that the band do so well, and that should see them plugging that yawning chasm in the metal market between Raging Speedhorn and Earthtone9" Ian Glasper, Terrorizer, 8/10




01/05/2001
Rock Sound (June 2001) has run a feature 'The Music Makers' about record producers, profiling myself, Ross Robinson, Andy Sneap, Dave Sardy and Chris Goss! Check it out!

Landmine Spring's album "Elephantine" is out on Loudspeaker Records: Rock Sound 4/5 "...as colossal and as clomping as you'd expect it to be with such a title, and sounds like helmet collectively b*tt-f*cking Stampin'Ground. ... makes a refreshing chang in todays 'same-old, same-old' metal scene ..." - Dareen Sadler.

Street Team 2000 webzine have published an interview with me. Check out their site (see links page, near the bottom)

Decimate have released mini-CD "In The Name Of God" on Blackfish Records. "...contains four examples of their monstrously stompy metalcore.." KKKK/5 Kerrang.




01/04/2001
Hangnail's 'Clouds In The Head' is out now on Rise Above records. "A large dose of Led Zeppelin's thunderous rythm section, a smattering of Sabbath's black velvet gloom and a nod to every band who's ever done the same. 'Third Time Around' has the same thunderous depth of Soundgarden .... proof that a new generation are picking up the gauntlet laid down some 30 years ago" - Ben Myers, Kerrang; "Hangnail's second release is concise, focused and probably the first real rock album of this year...Hangnail have produced an album that'll leave you with grooviness pouring out of every orifice. It's fab & funky baby - get a hold of it now!" Darren Sadler, Rock Sound, 4/5

Philia Studios has had a complete £25-£30K refit: Pro-Tools Mix+24, the first Control:24 Focusrite desk in the country, new chill out room, new patchbay, new curtains!

Rock Sound: "From the very outset ... 'Ketchup Suicide' threatens to blow your head clean off your shoulders. Rectum-rattling basslines and chimera chords start and finish the procedings with truculent force throughout." - Ruth Gazala 4/5



01/12/2000
'Misfortune Comes By Means Of The Mouth' by Underule is out on Blackfish Records. '...quite possibly the heaviest hardcore album of all time ... Relentlessly savage, endlessly inventive and 100% horrible' - Dom Lawson Kerrang KKKK/5.
