It’s hard to believe that around 10 years ago a native Australian bird that quietly went about its business identifying as a King Parrot was about to have its identity and status unceremoniously ripped from its majestic wings and would forevermore play second fiddle to its new namesake.
Yes, people, Melbourne grindcore (for want of having to label the mayhem) outfit King Parrot this year celebrate a decade of destroying stages around not only their home country but also that ...
Spy Vs Spy are a true Australian working-class success story.

Pieced together over the last two years, Once Human‘s upcoming album Scar Weaver represents a massive step forward for the band.

The result is a gloriously idiosyncratic modern metal record, with Lauren Hart’s career-best vocal performance just one of ...

Beartooth, a name I’ve heard, but a band I’ve never had the pleasure of listening to.

Without jumping to too many conclusions though, I threw this on while driving around at my boring day job.
