[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] JOHN CORABI BRINGS MOTLEY ’94 TO ADELAIDE’S ENIGMA BAR

If you were not already aware of the excesses of Mötley Crüe, then the oversaturated promotion of their movie The Dirt is a taste of what the band has always been about. Hidden away in two ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ scenes, is the portrayal of the Mötley Crüe singer of their 1994 self-titled album—or...

After taking the metal scene by storm last year with their record Tū and playing huge international festival dates, New Zealand groove metallers Alien Weaponry have returned to Australian shores with no shortage of hype behind them.

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] CLAIM THE THRONE AT ENIGMA BAR

Enigma had a night packed full of metal on Thursday 25th: four bands over four hours, featuring Perth’s melodic/folk metal band Claim The Throne.

After releasing their new album, Exanimate, last month, Melbourne melodic death metal band, Hollow World, hit up Adelaide on Saturday night to bring the heavy.

LIVE MUSIC REVIEW: OCTANIC’S 100TH SHOW AT ENIGMA BAR

One hundred shows. That’d be almost two years of playing a gig every weekend—of course Octanic has been together much longer than that but you get the picture. To celebrate this milestone, Octanic—alongside Drown This Fury, Massix and What Happens After Dark—put on a Metal At Enigma Christmas Edition show on Saturday. What Happens After...

OCTANIC SET TO SLEIGH ENIGMA BAR WITH XMAS SHOW DOUBLING AS THEIR 100TH PERFORMANCE

LIVE MUSIC REVIEW: SAVE THE CLOCK TOWER AT ENIGMA

Appropriately dubbed a ‘Winter Mixer’, last Saturday night welcomed seven bands to two stages at Adelaide’s Enigma bar – now, that’s like a festival lineup (except doors opened at 8.00pm and everyone kept their shirts on.) The lads with the six band support were Tasmanian alt metal band, Save The Clock Tower. They’ve been traipsing...

LIVE MUSIC REVIEW: CANCER BATS, HIGH TENSION AND A GHOST ORCHESTRA

Adelaide’s Enigma Bar is well known for the heavy acts it hosts, and the night of Wednesday September 23 was brutal. Head into the bar and up the stairs and you might not realise there’s a gig taking place, but open the door and you’re almost blown backwards by the musical assault. It’s dark and the crowd...
