'Revolt' EP
Release Date: 12th May 2014

Gary 'Rockulus' Clarke

Rockulus Maximus


Welcome to the arena of young up and coming vibrant rock bands. They are causing a stir after the success of their debut self-titled EP and being in the prime location of London cannot have done them any harm either.

The five-piece have five brand new tracks they want to share with their fans and newcomers alike which live in the tight production values of 'Revolt'.

The band for those who are interested consists of female vocalist Sante Moonie, with Alex Whiteford on guitar alongside the other guitarist Daniel Harris. These guys are joined by bassist Alex Osborne and drummer Michael Mann. These are the five individuals responsible for capturing and containing a tight representation of what Modern Rock music is today. Vocal melodies with potent lyrics veer left and right on top of a bed of guitar-driven Rock music, creating something that beckons chart-busting status if given the justice.

'Kings' is our starter for ten as it fades in and then rumbles along with a royal momentum. Guitars are distorted and dark, prickly like a thorny rose leaving only youthful abandonment in its wake. Complete with an adequate hook, 'Kings' is a solid opener. Moonie rapidly shares her words as a guitar fizzles beneath before 'Stand Down' strides into view with a self-confidence that defies the band's short lifespan; they formed in 2012 would you believe?

The third track arrives in the haunting shape of 'Prophecies' which incorporates a catchy “whoa” section which would go down a storm in the live environment. If you're familiar with the Modern Rock marketplace and you enjoy bands like Tonight Alive, The Pretty Reckless and Icon For Hire, then you'll find a lot to embrace on 'Revolt'. Its good stuff and washes over the mind and ears with consummate ease.

With 'Revolt' leaving us to ponder over the state of our relationships, directions in life and who we are as individuals, an acoustic-based opening introduces us to 'Strangers In August'. Sombre and reflective, this last song floats along for the majority of the time dancing in puddles of tears with a spring in its step. The distortion that attends this party in the latter part isn't overly intrusive adding another layer.

Their debut three track E.P. can be found over at if you have the time and inclination. For those who are all set and ready to accommodate the second E.P. by Amaryllis, then rejoice because it is time for the next exciting step of their journey. Take a deep breath and let it be a time to 'Revolt'. (Did I just type that cheesy last line out loud?!)

Stand Down
Strangers In August





Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.


Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.

Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.


MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.


Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
