[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...

[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.
