Album Review: Steel ...

  Album Review: Steel Panther – Lower the Bar You have to admire Steel Panther coming so soon after Lexis’ Mum’s Garage but is it premature? The fourth studio album, ignoring the 2003 effort, we aim to Lower the Bar and with a title like that I had expectations that it was going to be a...

  Album Review: Sleepmakeswaves – ‘Made of Breath Only’ Review: Craig Grant – Sleepmakeswaves is a band that I first came across in 2008-ish when they banged out 2 EPs in quick succession. Often referred to enigmatically as ‘post-rockers’, but the reality is that this Sydney four...

ALBUM REVIEW: Daxx & Roxane conjure up the spirit of the 80s on Ticket To Rock AHH the 1980s, the decade when hard rock was in its ascendancy, when rock and metal acts stood shoulder to shoulder and outmuscled the pop acts on shows such as Top of the Pops and The Tube – even the BBC...

ALBUM REVIEW: Immola...

ALBUM REVIEW: Immolation seek no remorse as they offer up an 11-track ‘Atonement’ CATCHY. There’s a word you rarely hear in terms of death metal songs, but seek and ye shall find… And, NY act Immolation have managed that feat as they pound out their trademark blast and...

  Album Review: The Screaming Jets – Noise Collection Reviewer: Brad Worsman – Ok, let’s get this out the way before we delve into this fine EP of Aussie garage rock. The Australian rock culture as we perceive it today is arguably on the ignored end of the spectrum as oppose to…let’s...

  Album Review: Tequila Mockingbyrd – ‘Fight And Flight’Reviewer: Craig Grant – That name, Tequila Mockingbyrd, it’s genius. Even the shortened name of T-Byrds is smart marketing as you can’t shake the name. The band is a three piece from Melbourne consisting of Estelle Artois on...
