Stormcaller is an impressive record. It channels the likes of Amon Amarth, Wintersun and Ensiferum, but was all written and (mostly) performed by just one man. North Hammer’s debut is powerful, melodic and a whole lot of fun. Fans of Amon Amarth will love what North Hammer has to offer. Stormcaller is an album littered with melodic, catchy riffs and blistering death metal sounds, all played to more of an Ensiferum-styled folk music backdrop.
I’ve always been something of a sucker for the Mario sports games. While they never quite match up to the official games of each sport (golf notwithstanding), they fill their gameplay with fun gimmicks that separate them from the likes of FIFA and Virtua Tennis. Mario Tennis is a series that began on the N64 and still goes today with the upcoming Mario Tennis Aces the latest in the long-running series.
PigWeed call out bands such as Korn, Deftones and Slipknot as inspirations – it’s clear that they weren’t plucking bands thin out of the air. Each of these bands appears to have had a big effect on PigWeeed and you can hear elements of each throughout their debut record, The Weight. The album sounds surprisingly rich for a debut. The mix is solid, with enough crunch to the sound so as to ensure that the powerful bass never overpowers the vocals. The Weight sounds big, heavy and clean throughout.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
