Anarchy Reigns Release Lead Track From Forthcoming Album For Free

British metal titans, Anarchy Reigns, one of the biggest social media hits of 2017, are expanding beyond their legions of followers performing acts of minor insurrection worldwide to bring their music to an even larger audience. With typical disregard for convention, they are launching the campaign trail to their much anticipated debut album by GIVING AWAY the lead track, Hypocrisy.

Whether this is a stroke of genius or commercial suicide remains to be seen but you can’t argue that they’re leaving their huge fan-base shortchanged! Hypocrisy draws heavily (literally) from the British tradition of no-nonsense metal and hard rock but an emphasis on cramming as many riffs and soaring chorus’ into 3 and a bit minutes as possible, though also nodding to more European and American influences, with elements of both industrial and symphonic metal.

All of this would be all well and good but Anarchy Reign’s biggest hook is their frontman, Hitch, a force of nature and a tornado of quips, rants and pithy missives, his very clear agenda being to bring down any element of authority and power which has over-stepped the mark. Such is the case with Hypocrisy which, well, can speak for itself.

Jokerbats – Welcome to EvilZgate


Byron and Trix make up the band ‘Jokerbats’ – like the White Stripes of hard rock. Their new single ‘Vampire’ is due for release on the 24th February and can be previewed below:

But before you listen, you should be introduced into their world as it’s not for the faint hearted…

Welcome to EvilZgate, a fictional land of castles, heavy mists and dark mystery fraught by warfare between the evil ‘Demoncock Corporation’ who aim to monopolise the music market with heartless talent shows fighting the noble and courageous Jokerbats. Residing in nearby Brutons Castle, the Jokerbats have been locked in guerrilla warfare with the Corporate for hundreds of years, fighting back their barrages of tedium and monotony with their own brand of hard rock. They cast spells of theatricality, eccentricity and musical exuberance over the Corporation to try and liberate its prisoners from imprisonment. (The full Chronicles of EvilZgate can be found here: http://jokerbats.tumblr.com/EvilZgateChronicles)

As a band they have drawn inspiration from traditional hard rock bands like Motorhead, Metallica and Black Sabbath who’s own Ozzy Osbourne was good friends with the band in their youth and owns a copy of one of their first ever demos. Their influences also go to the likes of the Cure, Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Banshees and they are particularly inspired by many bands from oversees such as Rob Zombie in the US, Lordi from Finland and Nightwish from Norway.

They especially love bands and artists who delve in the theatrical with music; bands like Lordi and artists like David Bowie who of course went through various dramatic transformations from Ziggy Stardust to the Thin White Duke. In terms of their fictional tale and their fight against artistic homogeneity they share a space with Daft Punk whose album ‘Discovery’ told that story within a futuristic cartoon context.

They hope to take the enjoyable side of heavy rock and gothic culture and to create their own fictional world which can by inhabited by them and their fans – musical reactionaries have been strictly exiled!
