Live Shots: Blind Girls @ Crowbar Brisbane 27/09/19

A real nice surprise to find on a doom lineup, Blind Girls really stood out and I’m going to be seeing them whenever I can. Another local band with a cassette! again, if anyone has it and wants to sell/trade… I don’t know any bands like this in the area but it is exactly my jam. In the future I will be up front early for this one. I’m lucky I was able to even get the photos I got with the amount of people at the barrier. It’s primal af and perfect for my short attention span. […]

Australian Heavypedia: Crypt Crawler (Death Metal)

Album Review: Abbath – The Outstrider 7.5 (Black Metal)

Anyone who knows anything about kvlt black metal or 2nd wave black metal knows Abbath. The man is an absolute legend. He was the front man of Immortal, and the corpse paint design he wears is easily the most immediately recognizable piece of black metal symbolism we have. After cutting ties with Immortal he formed a new eponymous band that has just released it’s sophomore album titled, The Outstrider. […]
