# ACCORDING to Bob Mardon of Club 85, "Spiked are a young all girl pop/punk rock band hailing from Hitchin. They have their eyes set on rock 'n' roll stardom and are really paying attention to all aspects of the business, including strong song writing, good musicianship, image and putting on a damn good show."

# SEVALOCO rose from their hometown, Stevenage, "with intent to create brutal yet melodic and melancholy music", according to their MySpace page. The five metal lads have a new EP out, Turning The Sky Red, consists of five new progressive songs which showcases their "varied melodic yet vicious guitar passages with crushing drumming and punishing vocals, their music is definitely in a category of it's own."
