[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] PARKWAY DRIVE AT ADELAIDE ENTERTAINMENT CENTRE WITH KILLSWITCH ENGAGE AND THY ART IS MURDER

We know how Parkway Drive built their career from the ground with blood, sweat and tears; how they toured relentlessly until their name was known. So, it’s no surprise that last night’s Adelaide show was huge. Thy Art is Murder kicked things off, and while the room didn’t fill out, they had a bunch of...

It’s almost that time of year again, when we can shed our responsible adult skins and dress up as whoever or whatever we want. ARMI (Australian Rock & Metal Institute) are hosting a ‘Come As You Aren’t’ Halloween party at Adelaide UniBar on Saturday 27th of October. Costumes are a must and the night will...
[LIST] 5 REASONS WHY YOU NEED TO SEE POLARIS LIVE

[LIST] 5 REASONS WHY YOU NEED TO SEE POLARIS LIVE

Sydney based band Polaris has risen up through the metalcore scene fairly quickly, and for good reason. Off the back of their debut album The Mortal Coil released in 2017, they’ve played Unify Gathering, toured Australia twice (with totally sold out dates), shredded through Europe/UK with We Came as Romans and Alazka, supported Gideon through...

[ALBUM REVIEW] MORE THAN YOU CAN GIVE US BY PEZZ

Memphis punk band Pezz are back with their first proper full length LP since 2001. More Than You Can Give Us was six years in the making and addresses a mix of personal topics as well as many of the social justice issues that the band has become known for championing over the years. Punk...
[INTERVIEW] AIDAN CIBICH ON NEW APOPHIS ALBUM VIRULENT HOST

[INTERVIEW] AIDAN CIBICH ON NEW APOPHIS ALBUM VIRULENT HOST

Aidan Cibich is a local musician who has talent and time to burn for his project Apophis. His sophomore album Virulent Host is out on September 18th and, to put it simply, it’s a masterpiece. Think along the lines of Intervals and Plini but with a heavier, almost cinematic undertone. It’s layers upon layers of...

The Gov hosted a Sunday night sermon for all the faithful rockers out there. Californian Christian metal band Stryper was in town—their first time back in Australia since 2010—and they made it a big one. Supporting Stryper were two Adelaide bands, Sonic Divide and Rosemont, and they both did their best to warm up the...

[INTERVIEW] JAKE FROM HIDEOUS SUN DEMON ON THE NEW ALBUM, PERTH AND GROOVES

There’s something in the Perth water that develops really rad musicians—and Hideous Sun Demon’s Vincent Buchanan, Jake Suriano and Blake Hart are no exception (think King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard with a healthy dose of punk rock). They’ve just released their third album, Fame Erotic Dream and are part way through a huge Australian...
[EP REVIEW] IN DENIAL, FORCE A SMILE BY TIRED EYES

[EP REVIEW] IN DENIAL, FORCE A SMILE BY TIRED EYES

When you listen to this EP, keep in mind that this is Tired Eyes’ debut. They haven’t been putting out music for years and perfecting their style over multiple releases, this is their first. And it’s bloody hard to believe because it is absolute quality. Think instrumentals along the lines of Sydney’s Sleepmakeswaves floating along...
