[Have You Heard?]

October 12, 2017

Artist: Lacuna Coil

Album: Delirium

Genre: Metal

Lacuna Coil are a very important band. They were one of the most prominent heavy acts to prove that a front-woman did not need to represent fragility, but strength and authority, inspiring a whole generation of female musicians - the kind that could hold their own among any of their male-fronted counterparts. Appearing on numerous festival line-ups hand in hand with bands like Slip...

Artist: Hemina

Album: Nebulae

Genre: Progressive Metal

Review by Nicole Roberts

If you're a fan of Australian progressive metal, you may have heard these guys floating about. With a couple of albums under their belt, Hemina have been a consistently high quality force in the local scene since their inception, and their 2014 album Nebulae is the poster child for how musically strong and interesting this Sydney town are.

Countless pro...

For those who even have a small interest in the Australia metal scene then you've surely heard the echoes of the band known as King Parrot. This is pure extreme metal but you don’t have to be a die-hard grindcore or death metal fan to see what makes this band so great. The band is fronted by a rather non frightening looking Matt Young, but the moment he starts to rampage through songs like 'Bozo' and 'Dead End' you begin to se...

Unlike most new artists, I worked my way backwards with these guys starting with their latest album Ghost Mile. Having seen them perform live a number of times, mostly as the support act and doing a damn good job of it, I never really went on to listen to their amazing back catalogue of music.

In 2010 a band from Perth released one of the most exciting and genre defying releases ever created.
