Eternal Rest – The Picture Of Hatred (Death Metal)

Brisbane has been coming out with some pretty awesome metal lately and Eternal Rest are no exception to this. Their third album The Picture Of Hatred has a lot to boast about for a band from such a humble part of the world (arse end of Australia, I’m here too so I can admit it) such as having this release on the American label Gore House Productions, album art from french artist Remy Cooper and being mixed by the iconic Dan Swano (what?!). With this in mind you might be imagining something quite fancy or even melodic… Yeah nah, this album is filthy, often finding itself on the grind side of death. There’s a sense of nihilism and discomfort, so naturally I enjoy it. […]

Giveaways

Noob Heavy does many giveaways. Some are for fun and some are to promote bands that I represent. It started on IG where my main following was but I have since developed a following across multiple platforms. It is difficult to run the same giveaway on all socials and the winner being announced on all socials, I don’t want people to feel left out because no one on Twitter won for example. […]

Noob Heavy PR

This is a PR firm whose sole purpose is to email your releases far and wide to get them coverage and airplay, as well as represent you to press. To do all the socialising and thinking that would typically wipe you out after days and weeks on end on the grind, I can do it for you and using experience in the community rather than having to start fresh like new and independent bands have to. I offer discounts to solo and duo projects as well as a capped rate for independent bands. […]

Album Review: Izthmi – The Arrow Of Our Ways 8.7 (Black Metal)

A wonderful black metal album that has both more harsh noise and more melody than I was expecting, this is not a middling release – it has a pointed sentiment and strong structure. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it a million times, guitar solos and sweet licks make black metal worth listening to. Even the tremolo picking here isn’t stale. The Arrows Of Our Ways is a very unique album and I’m not exactly sure what makes it so – perhaps the combination of mixing, vocals, concept and low af bass all make for the right cocktail. Izthmi have crafted an immersive and rewarding experience that releases via Within The Mind Records Feb 14th, 2020. […]

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. […]
