Iron-Maiden-The-Book-of-Souls-2015

Iron Maiden Book of Souls Upon first getting my hands on this CD (yes CD … get over it) and having a listen I was unsure how to react to this album, it sounded like Maiden but it didn’t feel like Maiden. So there I was about to give it a less than stellar review but as I was about ... Read More »

Dead City Ruins (Whole Lotta Love Bar) Nov 1

I’m supposed to be writing a review of Dead City Ruins when they played live at the Whole Lotta Love bar to kick off their tour of WA and South East Asia but how did that saying go, a picture is worth a thousand words?

The Poodles – Tour De Force – Review

The_Poodles_logo

The Poodles Tour De Force The first thing that strikes me about Tour De Force, The Poodles’ latest album, is that it tackles the heavy subject matter of change, whether flittering to and fro from a ballad tackling personal loss, change among society or your own dreams, Tour De Force is an album all about change that becomes infinitely listenable ...

nuclear-strikes-2014

Nuclear Strikes Megastorm Eyes If anyone were to ask me my stance on censorship I’d sit them down, get a piece of paper and a pen write down the offending word on said paper then proceed to rip it up into a million tiny shreds, then bundle them all together again and set fire to the bundle. But to be ... Read More »

malakyte logo 18/04/2014

MALAKYTE Human Resonance It just so happens that I was at the office door when the postman arrived with a package from the band Malakyte from Brisbane, Australia. It’s a band that I have been hearing a lot about so my expectations were high right from the very start and I could not help myself but decide to open the ... Read More »

Malakyte Live Review (Bendigo Hotel) Nov 9

Having been born in 1994 I wouldn’t have had the chance to go to shows held by all the classic thrash bands like Metallica and Megadeth in their prime, at a pub or small venue where the band and the fans were so close you could almost taste each others sweat, sure I could go to a Megadeth show now, ...
