[ALBUM REVIEW] WHAT’S MY NAME BY RINGO STARR

The Beatles. 600 million record sales worldwide. Selling more records than Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones combined—dwarfing the likes of Black Sabbath, KISS and Metallica. Need I say more?

[ALBUM REVIEW] EASTER IS CANCELLED BY THE DARKNESS

[ALBUM REVIEW] EASTER IS CANCELLED BY THE DARKNESS

‘Easter Is Cancelled’ and ‘Rock and Roll Deserves to Die’ are two extremely outlandish and over the top statements; most rock bands would not even contemplate exhorting the latter. The Darkness, though, are not most rock bands. They have always been outlandish and when they make these statements, you know there will be an intriguing...
[ALBUM REVIEW] PRIMAL FUTURE: 2019 BY TOXIC HOLOCAUST

[ALBUM REVIEW] PRIMAL FUTURE: 2019 BY TOXIC HOLOCAUST

Metal prodigy Joel Grind’s musical mastery concept that is Toxic Holocaust is back with the explosive new album Primal Future: 2019. Combining imagery of a post-nuclear world with classic speed and thrash riffs, the album could well be a soundtrack straight from a glorious ’80s Sci-Fi action movie. It’s Toxic Holocaust’s sixth full-length album and...

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] ADELAIDE ROCKERS THE BABES END AUSSIE ALBUM LAUNCH TOUR WITH ELECTRIC SHOW IN HOMETOWN

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] ADELAIDE ROCKERS THE BABES END AUSSIE ALBUM LAUNCH TOUR WITH ELECTRIC SHOW IN HOMETOWN

We can think of at least one reason to brave Adelaide’s West End on a chilly Saturday night: The Babes’ Dive Bars & Muscle Cars album launch. The Babes gave patrons the kind of gritty, head-banging rock ‘n’ roll that makes you forget your troubles. The kind that has every glass in the house raised....

[NEWS] ADELAIDE METAL BAND ALIUM SET TO RELEASE SECOND EVER SINGLE ‘FALLEN’ AND LAUNCH SINGLE AT SHREDFEST ADELAIDE

Heavy metal was created—then through time—feared, embraced, mocked, banished, ironically embraced, and finally: unironically embraced. There is a new breed that stands where metal is positioned—having come full circle—and Adelaide five-piece Alium take their place among the new breed. There’s a 2019 punch to the band’s sound, but the attitude channels pure, unadulterated 1980s heavy...
