Musicians Spotlight: Jason Higson from Yanomamo

Yanomamo formed in late 2011 via a shared love of huge, dirty riffs, feedback & B-grade horror movies to unleash the sounds in our collective heads.

Album Review: Obvurt – “The Beginning” 8.2/10 (Brutal Death)

When thinking of genres that don’t really see much innovation, brutal death metal may be somewhere near the top of your list, and for good reason.

If I happen to highlight how racist Australia is along the way… well that is inevitable and an inalienable fact. For this my sources are some Australian media outlets but most of the sources are from the internet, where videos are harder to leave out of the news, as well as Friendlyjordies, pretty much the only Australian Politics major worth listening to – who can only exist because of having his own platform independent of Australia’s media monopoly.
