Published Mar 15, 2011It's another week full of exciting new reviews here at Exclaim! So check out our Recently Reviewed section to see what's up for grabs on this new release day.
First off, innovative metal/hardcore rockers KEN Mode have returned with their crushing new Kurt Ballou-produced release, Venerable, which has received Exclaim!'s Mark of Excellence. Also earning that mark is the highly anticipated Darker Handcraft, by Trap Them, who have packed the album with their aggressive, adrenaline-fuelled aesthetic.
Then there is Mother Mother, who have cranked their sound into overdrive and amped up every aspect of latest release Eureka, which will have both old and new fans dancing.
Funeral for a Friend are back as well with their fifth album, Welcome Home Armageddon, which features their signature skate punk anthems and pop punk hooks. And Cornershop fans should be excited because the band have unloaded their infectious blend of hip-hop and poppy Punjabi folk hooks on Cornershop & the Double 'O' Groove Of.
Scottish indie rockers Found have surprised many with their explosive new release, Factorycraft, while iconic punk rockers Screeching Weasel have returned from an 11-year hiatus with their new album, First World Manifesto.
Finally, minimalist ambient composer Emanuele Errante has offered up his unique experimental brand of melancholic, tranquil ambient swells and melodies on latest release Time Elapsing Handheld, earning him Exclaim!'s Mark of Excellence. And another Exclaim!-recommended album comes from the genre-transcending Adebisi Shank, who dish out sublime hooks and pulse-raising beats on their aptly titled This Is the Second Album of a Band Called Adebisi Shank.
