WESLEY FULLER – Melvista EP

WESLEY FULLER – Melvista EP

This debut EP from Wesley Fuller is gloriously retro. Almost everything about it – from the 70s musical influences to the garish 80s artwork and Fuller’s own fashion sense – has at least one foot in the dirt of the past. The Aussie singer songwriter so loves retro synths and glam rock stomps, bubblegum choruses […]

SUN OF GAIA – Corrode

SUN OF GAIA – Corrode

A progressive metal quartet from Adelaide, Sun of Gaia are a talented bunch. Rather than take the predictable prog-metal route of trying to recreate an hour’s worth of Dream Theater inspired anally retentive dullness pomposity, the tracks on their 2016 EP look farther afield for inspiration. The riffs are heavier than many prog metal bands […]

HOBO MAGIC – Hobo Magic

HOBO MAGIC – Hobo Magic

From Brisbane comes classic metal/stoner metal band Hobo Magic; a band deep into the sounds of early Sabbath and more than ready to shake their audience with a rather fierce bottom end. There are hundreds of bands out there churning out post-Kyuss riffage, of course…so many, in fact, that it’s easy for many of them […]

SKULLCAVE – Climbing EP

SKULLCAVE – Climbing EP

Rarely was a band more aptly named. It takes about three seconds before this second EP from Australia’s Skullcave sets about caving in listeners’ skulls. These guys not only know their way around an enormous riff, but also know how to make the simplest riffs sound truly frightening. ‘Am I Crossing Over’ opens with a […]

DIRE WOLF – Black Death EP

DIRE WOLF – Black Death EP

As much as their choice of band name might suggest, Brisbane’s Dire Wolf probably don’t have much time for the Grateful Dead’s brand of Americana. Formed in 2011, the band’s chief goal was to become one of the city’s heaviest bands – and if they couldn’t claim such a feat previously, their 2015 EP release […]

FOREVR – Demonstration EP

FOREVR – Demonstration EP

This debut EP by Australian-based duo FOREVR is one of those discs you’ll either love or hate within seconds of hitting the play button.  With no time to warm up, the band have already shifted from silence to a complete wall of sound in a split second, as the intro ‘Yucatan’ crushes with a huge […]

THE QUIET ROOM – All The Frozen Horses

THE QUIET ROOM – All The Frozen Horses

In 2013, Australian rock band Evoletah unveiled ‘We Ache For The Moon’, a huge surprise of an album that threw away most of their previous alternative rock traits in favour of a moody sound combining rock, prog and touches of jazz.  One of the best albums of the year, it’s lower-key sounds really seemed in […]

INTERIM – Metanarratives EP

INTERIM – Metanarratives EP

Interim are a five piece alternative/hard rock band from Australia who’ve previously been championed by their own country’s famous rock radio station Triple J.  By the time of their 2015 EP release ‘Metanarratives’ the band sounds more than established – the five songs on this release are of a very high standard indeed, effortlessly mixing […]

MTNS – Salvage EP

MTNS – Salvage EP

Like so many electronic based artists, MTNS’ favoured approach of loading up the keyboards in place of “real instruments” and reliance on programmed elements makes this Australian outfit’s work appear rather cold at first.  Once you’ve broken through that mechanized wall – much like many of electronica’s strongest artists – there’s an intermittent dreamlike world […]

SONS OF THE EAST – Sons Of The East EP

SONS OF THE EAST – Sons Of The East EP

This self-titled EP is the debut outing from Australian trio Sons of the East.  Self released, there’s a warmth in the material that suggests it’s been a while in the making.  Those who enjoy acoustic music are almost guaranteed to come away having heard something great, even if they don’t enjoy everything on offer. ‘Miramare’ […]
