‘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...

[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...

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.

[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...
