Current Artists

The following artists proudly, nobly and repeatedly use at least one Vein-Tap.com product:

Alunah

Alunah

The West Midlands’ premier Doom unit, with a host of influences which defy those who would characterise them as ‘just’ a metal band, Alunah’s powerful vocals and atmospheric feel has led to their upcoming third album being released on our favourite independent, Napalm Records.

Athena’s Word

Melodic hardcore from the Netherlands, Athena’s Word marry the brutality of unrelenting hardcore with surprisingly tender melodies – always delivered with ferocious tenacity. Savage vocal delivery, slamming riffs and shout-along choruses make the band’s debut EP Lasting Legacy a truly promising release. Check them out!

Athena's Word

Blind Tiger

Dragging the awesome sounds of old-school noise into the present day, piling on a large serving of awesome riffs, melting it down into a potent liquor and serving it in a chalice of rock, Blind Tiger will eagerly destroy you. Then bring you back to life to enjoy their amazing live show!

Blind Tiger
Brother Bad

Brother Bad

Brother Bad are a two piece band from Ashford, Kent who are building a name for themselves with chaotic live performances inspired by punk rock and grunge. The list of gear destroyed in the name of art is growing but their Vein-Tap purchases have withstood the test!

Canis Lupus

Canis Lupus are legendary in goth rock circles. Hailing from the still-beating heart of beautiful gloomy music itself – Gothenburg – Canis Lupus have recently been resurrected by guitarist Christer after finding that the modern world still thirsted for the band’s music, initially created in the early 2000s, and laid to rest in 2006. The…

Canis Lupus
Deaf Bridges

Deaf Bridges

Deaf Bridges’ own brand of noise, danger pop, is just as exciting and new as it sounds. Hailing from Nottingham, the band do away with anything even resembling pretentiousness and simply make amazing tunes with mind-bending lyrics and titles. You do have to love a band who make references to Krakens and Hulk Hogan on the…

Details

Freeze the Atlantic

Freeze the Atlantic arose phoenix-like from under intense pressure to match the critical respect of guitarist Andy Gilmour’s other band (Hundred Reasons) and drummer Guy Davis and bassist Jon Pearce’s previous band (Reuben). The band’s 2011 debut release, the EP Colour by Numbers released on Alcopop! Records, simultaneously silenced all critics and proved that, when done…

Freeze the Atlantic
Herscher

Herscher

Earth-shaking, tooth-loosening, neighbour-offending doom from the dark heart of France. Herscher is a three piece doom band who sound more like three noble heavy metal armies laying siege to each other than three men on stage. Through a mix of alternately aggressive and plaintive vocal lines, layers of mountainous distortion, and tempos slow enough to…

Details

Hot Under Collar

Hot Under Collar’s crazy sound can only be described (by us) as supersexyurban-funkcrush. We made that word up. Based in London, Hot Under Collar consists of four friends who came together to create a new sound consisting of the best elements of rock, funk, R&B and hip-hop. As a four piece, it’s tempting to believe that…

Details

Ire Wolves

Ire Wolves’ music is, to put it bluntly, heavy. Heavier than osmium, or the dirty kebab drunken you ate last Friday night. These Minnesotan lads like it one way: slow, angry, powerful and pure. Don’t be fooled into thinking that their slower tempos make for simpler music, however – there’s both enough technical proficiency in…

Details

Jack Hinks

Based in Edinburgh, Scotland, The Jack Hinks Band fuses the heart of Jack’s solo material, with the teeth of a six piece band. Combining violins, piano, drums, bass, guitar and a wall of vocals The Jack Hinks Band create an eclectic mix of sounds and genres that will refuse to leave your head for days.…

Details

Leaf Hound

One of Britain’s longest-serving classic rock bands, Leaf Hound laid the blueprint for stoner rock. Not afraid to loudly proclaim their love of mind-adulterants, Leaf Hound have been cited as influences by both Wolfmother and Tame Impala. Since their 1971 debut Growers of Mushroom, one of the most collectible 70’s rock LPs in existence, the band…

Details

Mallory Knox

Straight outta Cambridge and into the UK Top 40 Album Charts, Mallory Knox are an incendiary rock band. Nominated by Kerrang in 2013 as the Best British Newcomer, the band’s album Signals reached 33 in the UK album chart. These lads are gaining vast momentum through hardcore touring and an incredible live set. Put simply,…

Details

Max Raptor

Burton on Trent’s Max Raptor have been creating a stir in the underground rock circuit thanks to three factors: punishingly catching songs, one of the strongest live sets any of us at Vein-Tap.com HQ have ever seen, and the uncanny ability to get an entire crowd on side though sheer enthusiasm and the love of…

Details

Minus Pilots

With only one electric bass and a volume controller each, a scattering of analogue delay/looping pedals and a broken four-track cassette tape recorder, Minus Pilots weave together sparse textures, crumbling atmospheres and fractured drones with currents of gentle crackle. Their music has been published by Champion Version, Dronarivm, Eat, Sleep, Repeat, Fake Jazz, Futurerecordings, Panic…

Details

Neko

NEKO, a trio from the UK south coast, bring together big riffs, dance grooves and prog rock echoing the likes of QOTSA, Dinosaur Pile Up and Muse. Formed by Tom Brennan (guitar and vocals), Luke Knight (bass and vocals), and David Cassell (drums) while attending high school in Worthing, the band (which was originally called…

Details

Nerve Centre

Hailing from Birmingham, Nerve Centre serves up more variety than your typical rock band. With the occasional acoustic gig, a Christmas song and moments of full orchestral grunge epic (believe us when we say this sounds huge) the band seems hell bent on taking the genre of guitar rock and subverting it into powerful and…

Details

Pat McManus

The Pat McManus Band are a rock/blues trio hailing from Ireland, headed up by former Mama’s Boys and Celtus guitarist, violinist and singer song writer Pat McManus. The ‘PMB’ line up is completed by former ‘More Power To Your Elbow’ powerful drummer Paul Faloon and rhythmic and solid former country music and session bass player…

Rival Bones

A rock power duo, formed in Liverpool in 2014, Rival Bones make a torrent of rock noise which puts them in the same sonic leagues as DZ Deathrays and Royal Blood. Currently making the stages of the UK small festival circuit creak under the sheer weight of their desert rock inspired riffs, the band has…

ROAM

ROAM deliver anthemic, scream-the-chorus pop-punk. From the sunny shores of Eastbourne, ROAM’s catchy, pit-filling music has earned them critical acclaim, immense popularity, and a support slot on skatecore heavyweights Sum 41’s recent UK tour. ROAM’s album Backbone is chock full of fantastic party tunes with aggressive, angry production – get it, take an hour off, drink…

Details

Soul Aside

Soul Aside is a rock band formed in 2010 and based in Barcelona. Influenced by many musical styles and bands such as A Perfect Circle, Porcupine Tree, Oceansize or Explosions in the Sky, Sigur Rós and Deftones, the band has developed its own sound around rich and personal compositions. Songs reflecting their concrete life perception…

Stämpf

Stämpf

Swiss Rock and its very finest. Stämpf’s influences come from all over the place; you can hear crushingly heavy riffs in the vein of Volbeat, wah riffs inspired by Velvet Revolver era Slash, and even a little bit of first wave pop punk in the uplifting feel of the band’s songs. This four-piece are a proud rock band, just…

Details

The Ghost Riders in the Sky

The Ghost Riders in the Sky build on centuries of real music for real people to deliver a sound that’s all at once welcomingly familiar, yet edgy, exciting and brand new. With an indie-pop jangle that owes a far larger debt to old Americana country music as it does to guitarist Stephen Carter’s old hardcore…

Ghost Riders in the Sky
The Rooz

The Rooz

The Rooz are a sickeningly talented band, especially when you factor in how young they are. Mixing loud, old fashioned rock n roll guitar playing with pop hooks and catchy songwriting, the band have made a proper good job of 2014, culminating in the band staging a spectacular closing set at the 2014 Music For…

Details

The Sun Explodes

Actually listening to The Sun Explodes is far more worthwhile, satisfying and simple than trying to describe their genre with words. So we won’t bother. The lads’ debut album, Emergence, is one of those albums packed dense with ideas which makes for compelling re-listening; get it, and spend the next three days ignoring everyone and listening…

Details

Toffee Music

Toffee Music were formed early in 2012 by Mike Lydiat and Dave Markam. Mike and Dave are both retired Primary school Head teachers who now perform Music Hall, Vaudeville and Standards of Yesteryear to raise money for Sheffield’s Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.  They play in pubs, schools, street markets, private parties – anywhere that…

Vinyl Cäsino

If you’re a funk band with an umlaut in your band name, you’re clearly our kind of people. Leeds-based, trans-European funk rock act Vinyl Cäsino has been described as a mix of Led Zeppelin and James Brown. Guitarist Harry uses a Skinny Little Switch Plus with a Hayden Mofo 30, and enjoys extra moist marble cake.

Details

Womps

Where once there was a solo artist, now there is a full band. Womps used to be the sole voice of Scottish wunderkind Ewan Grant – now it’s all about the visual viscera and aural onslaught of three lads going mental onstage. More versatile that a traditional grunge band, Womps’ influences are a who’s who of…
