I’ve been listening to Tome: 1 a lot lately, and it’s just an outstanding listen, so I’m happy to have the opportunity to introduce you guys to this band! Today I’ll be talking with the band’s guitarist and vocalist, Elijah Cirricione!
Witnesses is a doom metal solo project that recently dropped their new record Doom II, which you might remember me reviewing a little while back. The record really struck me, so I’m very pleased to have the opportunity to ask the man behind the music some questions! Make sure to check out Doom II if…
Some time in January this year, the Iranian/international outfit Dark Matter released its debut album Nebula to Black Hole with a star-studded line-up consisting of names like Thomas Helm of Empyrium, Juuso Raatikainen of Swallow the Sun, Daniel Cavanagh of Anathema and Feb Regman of Antimatter among many others. Here is my interview with Aria…
Welcome to the ongoing series of articles called #EliranWatch2020 because when I see an album cover by Eliran Kantor, I write about it somewhere.
Here’s the details and a taste of the upcoming Spirit Adrift album, following their 2019 underground hit Divided By Darkness which caught the attention of many metalheads with it’s classic stylistic artwork by Joe Petagno. Newcomers prepared to be warmed by the classic Heavy Metal sound wrought with modern tones. There’s also details surrounding a 2021 European tour with Corrosion Of Conformity which is quite an interesting combination, both very classic bands in their sound but of different styles and aesthetics. I also wasn’t…
Most of us know Tribulation by now they’ve had an incredible run of albums. Down Below was in my top 5 for 2018 and is one of my favorite cassette so I’m really looking forward to this one.
Just a quick one before I go away for the weekend, as I know how many of you love Napalm Death. My relationship with them isn’t as tight as I’d like and this is another daily reminder that I need to take a deep dive into their work. I’ve heard a fair bit of their music and dig it, as well as the general message within, I just haven’t heard with much context or chronologically. Feel free to drop your favorite albums in the…
Aversions Crown is one of the bigger modern bands of Australia, among titans like Psycroptic and Disentomb. Much the same as those bands, it’s usually a good few year wait between albums so Hell Will Come For Us All is a much welcomed release to fans of sci-fi death. At the very least, there are many improvements over their 2017 album Xenocide. Gotta love the Burke work though.
Warrior Within are a thrash metal band from Queensland, specifically the Sunshine Coast, where the good beaches are. Like many classic thrash bands in Australia, Warrior Within formed in the 90s by two brothers. The band has gained new members since 2016 and 2017 leading to the recording of several EPs which can be heard below. If you dig the old school speedy thrash sound with a message refined over decades, then give this lot a go and show some support.
Victoria K is a symphonic metal band from Melbourne that often supports bands like Eluveitie. This is absolutely for symphonic metal bands like Nightwish and Lacuna Coil. The project was initially a solo effort that became a fully fledged band on the Rockshots roster.
IRONSTONE is a young Australian progressive metal band, which came to the Melbourne scene in 2018 and soon earned a reputation for their high energy live shows. Influenced by a range of genres, their music is heavy and percussive, with atmospheric layers and catchy choruses.
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.
Ever since bands like Venom, Bathory, and Celtic Frost pioneered the genre of black metal, there have been many variations of the genre that have arisen with unique characteristics. Despite this, most variations have maintained vital characteristics that remain part of the core of black metal. One of these characteristics is bleakness.
