RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Rebel Rampage - Divided We Fall - Album Cover

Rebel Rampage live their music true to their name. And that’s the least you can say. Their 2018 record Divided We Fall bemoans the perceived wrongs that befell modern society in the US. And I daresay, they for sure find loads of ammunition during these times of confused and embarrassing chaos coming from the centers of power in Washington.

Of course, this kind of theme is nothing new. Specifically, the punk scene famously performed that feat. And that up to their very own self-destruction back in their heyday. Interestingly, the scene is creeping back … [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider Review - Infected Syrens - Self-Titled - Album Cover RockmusicRaider already covered a number of bands from Cyprus. Blynd or again Arrayan Path come to mind – to name just two. But never did we get a band like Infected Syren on the review list that seems to originate from the London East End much more than coming from an island in the Med.
