[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] ADELAIDE’S COBRA PLAYS SECRET GIG

Have you ever been to a gig so underground it was upstairs in an office building? We have—last Saturday—and it was a red haze of musical goodness. Adelaide experimental band, Cobra, always puts on a good show—but this time, it was scaled down and intensified. A small office room doubling as the band’s rehearsal studio,...

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] LEPROUS AT JIVE BAR

For years, Norway’s metal scene has been synonymous with church burnings, murders and extreme black metal music. However, Leprous, from Notodden in Norway’s south, blow that stereotype away. Leprous are currently touring Australia supporting their new album Malina, which is a different style from their earlier darker metal records. This new album brings a vocal...

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.

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] ANVIL AT FOWLER’S LIVE

There is nothing that Lips from Anvil doesn’t love about metal. And even if it’s a Sunday night in sleepy Adelaide, he’s going to make sure you love it too.

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] SEBASTIAN BACH AT THE GOV

“Remember yesterday, walking hand in hand, love letters in the sand, I remember you.” That is one of the most famous lines in Sebastian Bach’s catalogue that spans 30 years; from Skid Row’s self-titled ball-kicking debut to his most recent solo release Give ’Em Hell. Last night he returned to ‘Radelaide’ for a night of...

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] TROPHY EYES AT FOWLERS LIVE

After seven months overseas, it’s a hell of a welcome home when all your Australian tour dates sell out. Although, it’s no wonder Trophy Eyes tickets were so highly sought after; they’re electric live and their music is incredibly relatable. In a venue like Fowlers, supported by Rumours, Grenadiers and The Hard Aches, the ceiling...
[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] SUPERHEIST AT THE BALD FACED STAG

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] SUPERHEIST AT THE BALD FACED STAG

Following a hiatus that stretched on for well past a decade, ’90s cult metal legends, Superheist have made an impactful return to the Australian metal scene. 2016’s release, Ghosts of the Social Dead, and the band’s killer live shows are reminding us why Superheist will be sticking around. Touring with them are fellow cult ’90s...
