(Andy Synn returns to NCS from the injured list and brings us reviews of three excellent EPs released in September or October of this year.)
Some of you may have noticed (or maybe you didn’t, I don’t know how much attention you’re all paying) that I haven’t published anything here at NCS for a little while.
The reason for this is that last weekend (not the one just gone, the one before that) I managed to do myself an injury – not the worst I’ve ever had, but significant enough to affect my life – that has basically kept me in pretty much constant pain, and prevented me from sleeping more than an hour or two at a time, ever since.
As a result I really haven’t been in any mental or physical shape to focus on my writing here, hence my absence over the last week or so.
Thankfully I’m slowly beginning to heal up (and have gained access to some better drugs) meaning I’m now finally capable of diving back into the massive backlog of bands/releases which has developed over the last few days/weeks/months, so expect to be hearing a lot more from me – about a lot of new releases – over the next several days.
And to start things off, here are three pretty damn killer EPs from three pretty damn killer bands.
