Hearing Remfry is having a tough time, thought I’d pop in a review to point out that as with many folks, I myself had a pretty horrid time over the last couple of years, so just wanted to say how this insightful, honest, relatable and above all extremely entertaining and funny podcast really...Read full review »

Meh! Used to love these guys and TNM, but now pop and rap. Sad as they actually speak well and the production is very good. I mean, damn! Much better music in the underground, but apparently The Satanist is better than Fas.

Now it’s full of mainstream pop. Zzzzz.

I just don't know how they find the time, but I'm very glad that they do.Read full review »

It’s really clear how much preparation and thought goes into these shows, which are free every week and usually over 2 hours in length. You are in good hands, every week Remfry and Steve bring a bunch of new reviews from a pretty wide variety of bands under the ‘alternative’ umbrella. They have...Read full review »

Love this show, always entertaining, great mixture of music genres reviewed in depth and with often hilarious asides. (And unlike Steve’s previous podcast, the hosts respectfully allow each other to have a different opinion!) Great banter and chemistry between the two, long may it reign!

I have been listening since Episode 0 and I honestly love this podcast so much. Steve and Remfry are funny, engaging and immensely knowledgeable! I’d have missed so much great music without this in my life. Nice one.

I’ve been searching for a music podcast that is wide-reaching in the genres of music it explores, and I’m happy to say I’ve finally found the one. Stephen and Remfry have great chemistry, a background in heavier music that has broadened out similarly to my own journey and the research that goes...Read full review »

My favorite music podcast. Love you, guys.
RadislavMustDie via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/04/21
What started out as a fun, interesting and insightful music podcast, has become an elitist, boring and frankly ulistenable mess. Let's ignore all of Remfrey's pretentious, overused phrases, the sheer level of bordeom that strikes whilst listening to this podcast these days is quite...Read full review »

Reviews, news, and all round top lads. They take the music seriously but don’t take themselves seriously, which is very important. The regular show is the first thing I listen to when available and the specials go into great depth and are always really interesting. The passion and interest in the...Read full review »

From all the latest sounds in rock and metal through to cutting-edge pop and hip-hop, Riot Act covers SO much ground in acting as a gateway to discovering many modern alternative sounds. As well as sharing their knowledge and opinions, you may also want to stay for the lols especially when Steve...Read full review »

I’m writing this review in the hopes that the creators get wind of the numerous mistakes and assumptions they’ve made in this episode. So far I’m about 10 minutes in and the amount of incorrect things shared is quite glaring: *The songs did not originate from jam sessions. Omar was quite...Read full review »

This podcast has opened up so many new bands for me to check up. Although from a metal listening background, discovering artists like Fiona Apple has been awesome. I might not like all the bands they suggest, but that isn’t the point, it’s more about being open to new genres

Brilliant alternative music reviews. You won’t find any better.
Chetttty via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 10/04/20
Some people are intimidated when talking to large amounts of people in an entertaining way, not Stephen Hill and Remfry Deadman. Professionalism is... and that’s what you get!
JJW Dizzer via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/26/20
The mixture of valuable experience, rich insight and comedy chemistry that exists between Steve & Remfry makes for a near as dammit perfect music podcast. Also, the breadth of musical styles and genres covered will open almost everyone up to great music that they otherwise would have been...Read full review »

Excellent and entertaining pod that provides a great resource for discovering new music. Two very talented journalists, and engaging broadcasters.
FSworder via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/23/20
Stephen and Remfry are so knowledgeable in the genres that we love. It’s like sitting down and having a conversation with your mates. They have put out great content during the covid era and to think they have live music still to come. The future of the podcast is exciting. For lovers of...Read full review »

Seriously lads, it’s been 2 years, and they haven’t mentioned you once..... Time to move on..... (Edit: Glad to see Steve can take a piece constructive criticism, from a month ago, like an adult 😉).
Penny Oates via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/19/20
Been listening since the very first one. Simply the best alternative music podcast. They review a wide range of bands and I definitely have them to thank for some of the music I listen to now

The smartest hosts in rock and metal

Pillow2274 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/18/20
I’ve been a fan of Steve and Remfrey’s work for some time, and this continues the tradition. There’s a huge diversity of artists featured which always keeps things interesting, and they keep me in stock of new artists and music. Tbh I’d be a bit lost without this in my ears every week. Keep it up...Read full review »

Fantastic podcast on ‘alternative’ music. The umbrella is very wide - Haim to Lingua Ignota by way of Cattle Decapitation. What more could you want? With the main show, and all the bonus episodes over on Patreon, there’s so much material to get your teeth into and every one is a pearler. Great...Read full review »
A.J-S via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/04/20
I’ve always loved metal and punk podcasts because they are more passionate about music than the more pop and rock audio journalism. Riot Act gives me that passion, but with a wider music base to pull from! Alternative music is a many splendid beast, and I’m picking up on new albums to explore...Read full review »
Pominperth via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/04/20
Wherever Stephen Hill goes, I go. The Metal Hammer Podcast, the other one and now Riot Act, I've been listening to Steve rant, rave and recommend for 10 years now. Both he and Remfry are funny, laid back, informed, articulate and dedicated to bringing fantastic music to the...Read full review »

Extremely in-depth & hilarious reviews, recommended highly.
ConnorRogerss via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/03/20
I can’t recommend this podcast enough. I’ve been listening to Stephen Hill since the early 10’s and this podcast is the perfect vessel for him and Remfry to give the most up to date analysis and present amazing bands that you might miss otherwise.
JimborinoK via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/24/20
You don't have to agree with them, but the reviews that the hosts provide are honest and a breath of fresh air. The fact that they are able to go in depth and support their reviews with their knowledge and experience of the industry makes this the only music podcast I trust. The additional...Read full review »

This podcast is awesome. Steve and remfry are opinionated and it’s great.. honest and not afraid to tear something to pieces if they don’t like it...also constructive in its praise or slating of a record... i tend to agree with them 95% of the time and they have turned me to many bands I would...Read full review »

Riot Act is my favourite music podcast and a genuine treat to listen to each week, both the weekly free podcast and additional content available through Patreon. Steve and Remfry combine an extensive knowledge of alternative music with a real passion to promote the best of what is currently...Read full review »

Amazing as always! So good to hear their voices. Best music podcast around. Thank you! 👍🤘🙏
Chilibanks via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/18/20
Who would of thought, an alternative music review podcast with opinions being aired. All joking aside, this has to be my favourite music podcast. Stephen and Remfry are great hosts who clearly love music, and are loads of fun to listen to. I’ve discovered a lot of great new bands thanks to these...Read full review »

Informative, funny and they cover a wide range of bands and artists. Excellent work chaps!
Simmonaut via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/17/20
Delightfully opinionated and the sexiest music review podcast available! Keep up the good work over there... please. Seriously, I rely on this podcast to tell me what to/not to listen to. These guys are thorough, thoughtful, and leave no stone unturned. They’ve yet to steer me wrong!
DBD321123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/17/20
Simple - this is the best weekly alternative music weekly review show. That’s it. Get it in your life.
Hughbugg via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/17/20
I get we all have opinions but these guys are kinda rude about some things. Only listened to one episode and they didn’t really talk about the guests a lot and just spoke over each other a fair bit.
