Pulled Apart By Horses
Riotous Leeds four-piece whose punk/metal crossover pays more than a slight homage to the sounds of Seattle. Their speed-fuelled thunderous guitars and high-octane vocals draw comparisons to a crazier Queens Of The Stone Age, an artier At The Drive-In or a shoutier Shellac. With crazy song titles 'I Punched A Lion In The Throat', 'I've Got Guestlist To Rory O'Hara's Suicide' and 'Back To The F**k Yeah', the Leeds noisesmiths have a mischievous sense of humour beneath their screeching hardcore jams.

This is the psychedelic nightmare spun by The Wytches, who are spreading their subversive message across England in the dark guise of 50s surf riffs, desert whips, melancholic shuffles and a kaleidoscopic stage performance that will put you under.

Sheffield's SHEAFS pack punches with blistering riffs and instantly addictive hooks that hark back to the glory days of regional indie in their 4-minute whirlwinds of guitar-led goodness. They're already gaining hype across the blogosphere thanks to killer tracks like Mind Pollution and This Is Not a Protest, and now's the time to catch them before they're selling out arenas across Europe.
