  • Written by Espi Kvlt Dawn Ray’d – To Know the Light> RABM> UK> Releasing March 24> Prosthetic Records Anyone even slightly familiar with my taste in black metal knows that I place Dawn Ray’d a tier above most other bands. Not just black metal, but specifically RABM. Dawn Ray’d have shown time and time again their commitment to writing black metal songs about anarchism, anti-fascism, and the terror that occurs in our world as a result of the State and violent hatred. Naturally, I leaped on this album when I saw it show up in my inbox, and I listened to it immediately. Dawn Ray’d decided to lean more heavily into the [...]

Australian Heavypedia: Interview with Shatter Brain (Death/Thrash)

Shatter Brain just put out their debut LP Pitchfork Justice after having a split and demo to their name since their formation in 2017. This new album marks a rise for the band in the underground Australian metal scene with an overall well rounded product. It certainly helps that they host a couple of their states largest metal festivals. […]

Progressive metal band Ironstone

Australian progmetal band IRONSTONE release debut EP Prophecy on May 29th

Let me give you a first impression of IRONSTONE, a young progressive metal band from Bendigo, Australia. Influenced by a range of genres, their music is heavy and percussive, with atmospheric layers and catchy choruses. It features the duality of clean and distorted vocals, djent driven riffs and breakdowns, what makes the result contemporary, melodic and hard hitting. […]

Album Review: Lucifungus – Derek 6 (Stoner Doom)

Lucifungus made a pretty strong impression in 2018 with their debut EP and a bunch of awesome show lineups in 2019. I’m glad to finally get some more from these guys. A very riff focused doom duo with a lot of gain, the way it ought to be. I wonder if they have the orange amps. Definitely got the Melvins vibe. […]

Album Review: Unfathomable Ruination – Enraged And Unbound 9.5 (Brutal Death)

Well this is a hit, there’s death metal for the whole family on Enraged and Unbound, the dad and uncle that still listen to The Big 4 and Morbid Angel, the the older son who likes it a bit more technical, and the youngest of the children becka with the Disentomb tee who likes it fucking dank and filthy. It has guest vocals by death metal growlers Julien Truchan from Benighted and Sven de Caluwé from Aborted. The album art is a work made by the incredible Eliran Kantor. This album is like the heisenberg recipe of pure death metal and it comes out November 22nd on Willowtip Records. […]

Album Review: City of Souls – “Synaesthesia” 8/10 (Prog Metal)

City of Souls are a 6 piece progressive metal band formed in Auckland, NZ in 2015. The members are previously from well known bands (Blindspott, New Way Home, Cold by Winter, In Dread Response and Solstate) in the NZ hardcore and metal scene. They have been steadily dropping strong singles since forming, revealing a sound that is altogether heavier, deeper and more emotional than previous projects. […]
