[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...

[ALBUM REVIEW] PARANORMAL BY ALICE COOPER

The godfather of shock rock wants you to move. Not tap your foot. Move. With his twentieth dip into the solo album kool-aid, Alice Cooper wants you to remember his blues rock ‘n’ roll roots with Paranormal.

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...

[ALBUM REVIEW] IN SEARCH OF SANITY BY ONSLAUGHT: REMASTERED

In Search of Sanity by English thrashers Onslaught is back! The almost-30 year old album had a reissue in 2006; the now remastered album tightens the screws on what was an already epic album, and gives maximum thrashinity/nostalgia for the past-metal days. Thanks to John Mitchell’s mastering skills (err remastering), the behemoth that is this...

Sometimes the current landscape of progressive music can be a cause for concern, but clearly hope remains! While prog in general is enjoying a healthy resurgence in popularity, it appears that some bands have reinterpreted it in favour of pushing the envelope of technical proficiency even further.

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] GROOVIN THE MOO 2017 AT WAYVILLE SHOWGROUNDS

Since the disappearance of Big Day Out, Soundwave and Future Music Festival, South Australia hasn’t been well-known for hosting insane music festivals. Fortunately, the 2014 inception of SA’s Groovin The Moo has been our saving grace. So popular that the festival site had to be moved from Oakbank to the Adelaide Showgrounds; regardless of the...
