All I Seek - Single Review: Envy

05 Aug 2022 // A review by River Tucker

More than just a progressive Metal band, All I Seek have coalesced many of the best Alt Metal styles around, including at times Melodic Death (with a slight Djent edge) into their rip-roaring third single, Envy.

This massive four-minute track fills a gap in New Zealand’s current progressive Metal scene and the juxtaposition of the songs uplifting message, delivered during mid-winter, makes it a very well timed release.

Somewhat reminiscent of Living Colour’s Corey Glover, lead singer James S Gill’s perfect pitch, trailing vibrato and formidable power is the glue that sticks this track together. To say that he can hold a tune is a complete understatement.

For a band with four guitarists, All I Seek certainly knows how to create space. This is great for building anticipation into Envy’s formidable and memorable choruses. A first-rate arrangement combined with a perfect mix shows that these five guys from Wellington are onto a winning combo.

Delivering a broad wall of sound that every good Metal band should be seeking, Envy ticks all the boxes. Make sure you check it out today.

Magnalith - EP Review: Instrumentality
15 Apr 2021 // by River Tucker
If you ever had the inclination to record some music, heading over to Auckland’s LAB studios to lay down some drums is a good way to begin. Not only have they provided Mathew Bosher’s solo release with the depth of sound his chosen genres demand but they also ensure the contagious rhythms on Instrumentality, his debut EP under the moniker Magnalith, have the cut through required to get listener’s fully engaged.

Album Review: Garden Party Riot
24 Nov 2020 // by River Tucker
Garden Party Riot’s self-titled debut album is full of intense energy, odd time signatures and cohesiveness often only found in three-piece bands. But above anything else these nine original tracks are party inducing, which is exactly what we need in this time of doom and gloom.

3000AD - Album Review: The Void
06 Nov 2020 // by River Tucker
For a debut, The Void by 3000 AD is one hell of a kick arse release. Not only does it deliver everything you could ever want from a metal album, elements of punk and thrash will also satisfy the most hardcore head bangers amongst us.
