About Me

My photo
Born in the late 60's, Chesy hails from a Welsh mining village with a long name and was pretty glad when he got the Hell out of there. He got into Rock/Metal in about 1980, thanks to a TISWAS related incident (Rainbow video for All Night Long) and thankfully has never looked back. Chesy often sang solo in the school choir, but thanks to a puberty related incident his voice is now completely bolloxed, although in his own head Paul thinks he sounds like a blend of Coverdale and Dio (R.I.P). He was brought up on the classics - Deep Purple, Rainbow, Thin Lizzy, Rush, Whitesnake and loved melodic rock and the Hair Bands of the 80's. (Nowadays, he has progressed a little and prefers a more technical and/or progressive metal - Dream Theater, Rush, Symphony X, Porcupine Tree, Pain Of Salvation, Spock's Beard. He hates Black and Death Metal (can't stand the grunting) but for some unknown reason loves the magnificent Opeth! He wont stop this blog until his beloved FM finally play the likes of the NEC as a headlining act!!!

Forever In Debt - 'Forget Me Knot' E.P. Review



Widnes noise rock trio Forever in Debt released their sophomore E.P ‘Forget Me Knot' on Sunday, April 22nd 2018 via Society of Losers Records. It' released as a CD, hand packed and sealed at Society Of Losers HQ as well as digitally across Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp ans all major streaming services.

Widnes noise rocl trio, "Considering the fucking miserable nature of it all and the fact that I'm pretty sure we each shaved a few years away from our hearing making 'Forget Me Knot' we're really happy with it." - Craig Twigg, Vocals, Guitar

As soon as ‘Without A Sense Of Summer’ kicks in I’m transported straight back to the 1990’s classic album ‘Insecticide’ by Nirvana. This is brilliant stuff. The opening riff is an absolute killer but what I like about this song is that it’s grunge but in a lazy way. Craig’s lyrics are just sublime, not too angry, almost in a ‘not too bothered’ way and it works a treat. What a great opening track. 

‘Rabbit Hole’ is Pumpkins all over. Craig has matched Billy Corgan’s sound here to a tee. I love it. Theres’ so much going on in this song it keeps you mesmerized.

Just when you think things can’t get any better, ‘Billy’ kicks in. An anthem of noise, calm, anger all rolled into one. There’s some nice solo work in this track, hugely inspired by the Smashing Pumpkins and these guys match anything the Pumpkins can do easily.

Unfortunately, ‘Chewing Bees’ is the last track which comes too soon for me as I’ve really enjoyed this EP. It starts with a melee of anger but soon calms down into a quite-ish verse. Soon followed by a manic chorus. It’s only fair that the production team get a mention here too, as the Engineer has managed to mix a great clear sound but also keep the dirty Nirvana-esque noise that we all love. I’ve got to catch these guys live.

Score 10/10
