Melbourne hard rock outfit The Last Martyr are a band who is constantly aware of the ever-changing cycles that comprise the modern music scene.

Turning 30 is a big deal – whether it is your amount of laps around the sun as a person, or whether it is a body of work that was created and still resonates three decades after the fact.
While the members of The Screaming Jets personally celebrated lapping the sun a couple of years ago, their debut album All For One this year celebrates that milestone, with the band releasing a special re-recorded version with the current line up to mark the occasion.

With an EP title like Scamdemic, I’m hoping to fuck this isn’t some rant about COVID, because to be honest I’m sick to fucking death of hearing about it. Especially from the whack job experts on the far-flung edges of both sides of the discussion.

There is nothing quite like being summoned late on a Saturday night to review an Australian thrash metal band. That is of course except for being at a metal show which is fucking near impossible with the filthy Rona still lurking about. But here we are, and here we have the latest release by Desecrator who can hopefully follow through with their tour plans by somehow bypassing the filthy state of roaches after a snap state lock down was enforced earlier ...
