This track straight away pulls you in with its epic riff that has a natural grove to it, the overall structure of the song is nicely structured and it reminded me a little bit of korn meets spiritbox and architects.
The production is crisp and clean, some very powerful guitars which as I have already said have such a grove to them it really brings this all together
Big thumbs up from Setting The Tone
 
 
 
Next up we have one of my favourite bands around right now, they have been busy out on the road playing to sell-out crowds
The Hara and their new single Die in The City
 
This one is an absolute banger, a great vocal display from Josh, there is some great energy brought to the table from Zack and Josh, Die In the city is about chaos and embracing it and letting it have its moments, die in the city is packed with classic Hara riffs and lyrical hooks, yet again showing this bands diversity within their catalogue go and check this out

www.instagram.com/winterburnofficial
 
 
Dogtown reminds me so much of a rock track from the 70’s perhaps this is because the obvious is it should be a track from the 70’s the riffs are epic some real funk and drive behind them, I absolutely lover the guitar work on display from the scales to the solos and the cool tones on display we could be here for 20 mins talking about that along, vocals are nice would like to hear perhaps a bit more power in the vocals, not trying to be rude or knock WinterBurn but that would be the one area I would look to see a changed.
Overall, a great track
Thank you SaN PR

Jeeze how good is this new Mastodon album.
 
I have enjoyed Mastodon for a number of years, Hushed & Grim.
 
Has to be their most complete album to date. it’s amazing and so strong.
 
a powerful and classic album, Loved every second of it.
 
What I would say is don’t stop this album half way through its an album you start and finish in one listening as this keeps the momentum
9/10 from Setting The Tone

This is a brand new band to me, straight you are met with a heavy slap of riff think Cancer bats and that’s what you will hear with this incredible punk riff, lyrically it nice, but not an idea what the lyrics as I would assume there in the bands native tongue and that’s cool, its got plenty of energy would be keen to hear more highlights great high octane riffs and. thick bass lines

October 2, 2021

Setting The Tone’s First live stream, Blood youth and Sertaline reviews and more

 

 

 

Blood Youth start the reviews off this week, I was really surprised by how incredible Visons Of Another Hell is the latest offering from Blood Youth was released on the 1.10.21 and it’s a belter, there are so many different vocal styles on display from clean/growls to melody/harmonies and The guitars are amazing packed with Riffs and melody.

 

Overall, a great album a joy to listen too.

next up is SERTRALINE And their latest single VIVID.

 

 

Vivid is the latest offering from SERTRALINE and the last with frontwomen Lizzy who is has now left the band.

 

This is a perfect way too say goodbye from Lizzy who delivers a great vocal display, VIVID has a diffretn feel to previous singles as the is a layer of soft keys in the background and I feel its does not quite capture the same energy, but that being said clearly this being the last single with Lizzie it was going to be slightly different, vivid is still a great track and one you should add to your playlist.

Slam Dunk Special

Slam Dunk Special

September 27, 2021
Setting The Tone Proudly presents Slam Dunk Festival 2021.
On 5th September 2021, Setting The Tone attended this year Slam Dunk South.
The day started with checking out a bit of Hacktivist before heading back to the press sent to setup for interviews with Hacktivist, For you the Moon, The Hara and WARGASM.
First up is my interview with Josh from Hacktivist, who were simply incredible so much energy on stage and will be in tour in December 2021.
Make sure you head over to the following links show some love and grab a ticket or two.https://www.hacktivist.uk.com/shows
Next up I spoke to Jordan and Tim from FOR YOU THE MOON who made their Slam Dunk Festival debut that week.
Really nice guys and I can’t wait to see what follows from these guys sadly I was not able to check out their set but I hope they enjoyed their debut and had a great time.
I also sat down with The Hara but sadly the audio for this and my interview with Sam from Wargasm UK is not too any quality, I will keep working on the interviews and will try and get them out because I loved talking to both bands so much fun.
Thank you guys for your time.
A massive shout out to the Josh from Hacktivist. And Hannah from Hold Tight for setting this up.
Also to Mo from SATELLITE 414 for setting an interview with WARGASM
Maisy from Madhauspr for her support.
And lastly but not least Emma and Siobhan from PublicCity PR for allowing Setting The Tone to be a part of slam Dunk and for setting up the interview with For You The Moon.
Had an absolute blast what a day.

Ep 29 single reviews for Mastodon Pushing the tides Our Hollow, Our Home, Eddie Vedder, Black Falcon Alone As A God Eyes Wide open, Blood Command True North ,Zebrahead ‘

September 11, 2021

Brand new Episode out not episode 29

 

Ep 29 Which see the return to the world for Mastodon who have unleashed a stunning new track Pushing the Tides https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=haT5ars6RXc for me this is classic mastodon at their very best heavy riffs classic grit vocals and soaring hooks and melody honestly cant wait for this album to drop, we could be in for a great end to the year.

 

Next this week Our Hollow, Our Home with their brand new track Monarch check out the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhKLa4b_TsY

 

Our Hollow, Our Home online

Twitter: OHOHofficialuk

Instagram: ourhollowourhomeuk

Our Hollow, Our Home are new to myself and if you like it heavy then you will like these guys and their single Monarch taken from their Burn in the flood out now, there is a lot going on in this track different vocal styles from growls to clean and then mixed from some rap and this just the vocals guitars switch between heavy riffs to intricate tones, now I’m not normally in for bands like this because I feel once I have heard one I’ve heard them all but I like monarch and what it is to offer so many things going on in and track different layers  

Thank you to Public City PR

 

Eddie Vedder returns to his solo projects with a brand new solo track Long way check the video for Long way https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHqd5Q7pYo0

 

Wow this is so different to his previous body of solo work, this is massive country vibe going on here, it feels very safe as a track don’t expect a ukulele here or the same energy from Pearl jam, this is very much a track where you will have this on driving down a country road somewhere and the sun will be shining, there’s plenty of melody both vocally and guitars. Its nice and cheery just very very different.

 

 

Next up are Black Falcon and their single Alone As A God

Alone As A God check out the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5lCuKL-4VM

 

We had announced the news earlier in the show of the return of mastodon, well if you not a fan of Mastodon but like your prog then perhaps Black Falcon can gain your approval, as they have unleashed a powerhouse of a single Alone as A God, which takes its cues from Mastodon, I can even hear little bits of URNE in hear that’s perhaps because URNE are also inspired by bands like Baroness, Mastodon, riffs are heavy and hit you in the chest, thick bass lines and heavy beats are like thunder in the sky, a beautiful breakdown which is met with an  breath taking solo.

https://www.e-w-o.net

 

straight away I’am met with a wave of riff and vocals that remind me so much of earlier Inflames which I love why well Inflames are incredible, plenty of melody in the guitars and vocals in this offering from eyes wide open, the guitars are great and truly heavy.

 

What really stood out for me was the melodic break downs as it just takes the energy level down and then slowly builds it back up with more fire and energy then the verse, if you love bands like Inflames, meets Killswitch engaged then this band and this track is for you crank this one up to 11

 

 

Okay next up this week sees a new band

 

Blood Command and their single The End is Her

Stream The End Is Her https://orcd.co/theendisher

 

Blood command online

https://www.hasslerecords.com/

 

straight away this is such a cool track with a bass opening line with a really cool tone, I really like the drum beats on this as there is a really cool rhythm and it really is the back bone to the track, vocally its clean and melodic and poppy , the guitars remind me a little bit from a track from the  band 1975, overall this is a really cool track with a great bounce and great energy to it.

 

 

Next up this week continuing with theme of new bands

True North and their single Save Me

 

Check out the video for 'Save Me' here: https://youtu.be/07Da7escLPs

wow this has serious Bring me the horizon vibes, such a belter of a single the guitars are very gentle and soft and kick in at certain points a strong vocal display with melody and hooks in the chorus which for me was the highlight of the track as the chorus are big/bold and loud Some awesome synth in the background to tie this track all together

 

 

lastly this week I recently had pleasure of attending this year’s Slam Dunk 2021 SOUTH which was incredible

so it only seems right to close out the show with Zebrahead and their brand new single A Long Way Down taken from the III out on the 26 November 2021, make sure to check out the video as it was filmed pre SlamDunk and filming continued into the their time in the UK

I spoke about Zebrahead a few weeks back on the sure and how I never really connected to them as a band but honestly this is the second track from the upcoming Ep III and I love it.

 

The track openings with a really cool beat, vocally its strong and has some serious hooks both vocally and in the guitars which offer a lovely classic pop punk tone, all this with a classic rap in the track and some serious energy again. So so impressed and honestly these guys are slowly converting a massive shout out to them and all the bands last week at Slam Dunk, as it is still not the easiest thing to attend a show or to put it on.

 

Thank you to Hold Tight

CottonMouth Altered Mouth Ep, I started the journey and was not blown away but as the EP goes on I found myself more drawn to this, its’s an EP that grows throughout do not expect it to come out swinging from the word go however there some awesome displays on shows here, vocally its clean great, if guitars are you thing then there’s some rip roaring open up the havens style solo with some awesome leads on this ep matched by a great rhythm section, I know next to nothing about this band I have seen there named on gig posters and I would been keen to check them out live, as I get the feeling of their sound being more inspired by classic rock bands like Euorpe and Iron maiden in there, this is by no means not a bad thing. A really enjoyable listen

If you want high octane then this album will be for you, an ep that draws upon styles and sounds from bands like Jimmy Eat World to Deaf Havana, this is an album packed with Melody, hooks plenty of energy and punch in the guitars with some incredible tones

Outlier is packed with a melodic wall of sound packed with plenty of hooks and guitars with a real drive and riff

This is a track that is always changing between heavier moments and the melodic moments and it does it so well effortless and done with such energy.
