Cover shot VULVODYNIA

South African Slam Death Bulldozer VULVODYNIA will be bringing their brutality to Australia for the first time this November! Celebrating the release of their already critically acclaimed 2019 record “MOB JUSTICE” the band will be blasting their way across Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney, Woolongong, Canberra, Melbourne and Adelaide!

“It’s already been three years since the release of Psychosadistic Design! Since then it has been a dream come true for us playing multiple tours and festivals abroad, but we’ve always felt that we needed an album that paid homage to the savage motherland we call HOME. We needed an album that hit home for us conceptually. Instead of following up on the murder themes of Psychosadistic Design or the Alien themes of Finis Omnium Ignorantiam we are basing each song around the horrors we face in our day to day lives in South Africa. We will leave no stone unturned as we expose you to everything VILE that Africa has to offer from our Drug Epidemics to our Mob Justice Killings to our Corrupt Government! All will be revealed… You will witness the true beast that is AFRICA.” Vulvodynia

THE BRAVE – LIVE AT STAY GOLD

Cover shot EVERYDAY METAL

On Friday night we headed to Stay Gold in Brunswick, which is one of the newer music venues on the Melbourne scene, to check out The Brave ‘Aura’ Tour, in a line up of local Aussie metalcore. The first set was Washed Away from Melbourne in their first show. Filling in for their bassist for the night was the guitarists from Gravemind who played his heart out for them. There were some nice rock style guitar riffs and punk vibes from this set.

The five-piece band from South Gippsland, Earthbound, launched into their set with immense enthusiasm and the crowd responded with a matched energy. Their performance was filled with slow and heavy breakdowns, solid cleans, epic screams and quirky sound effects. These boys are really entertaining in a live setting.

Joining The Brave throughout their tour is Pridelands from South Australia. They took the stage and offered us some solid mix of dirty and clean vocals. The two vocalists worked in harmony with each other to create a satisfyingly layered sound. Pridelands have a real stage presence and this was a tight performance with atmospheric undertones.

Headlining the night was The Brave from Brisbane touring their new album ‘Aura’. Their live performance was emotive and heavy, which were all together nostalgic, bringing me back to the days of my youth. Lead singer Nathan’s vocals are extremely strong, moving effortlessly from heavy to harmony. The energy in the crowd was palpable and everyone there was having a great night.

Cover shot CULT OF LUNA

Swedish Heavy Metal act CULT OF LUNA have had an impressive career over spanning 20 years and their new record “A Dawn To Fear” is shaping up to be their most epic to date.

“Going into the process, we knew the album we wanted to make, an antithesis of what we’ve done before. For pretty much every album there’s been a very concrete theme. We’ve known from the start the kind of story we wanted to tell, and I didn’t want that to be the case. I’ve seen a lot of subtle changes and patterns in my own behavior and my own thinking the last couple of years, and I wanted this to be a completely spontaneous process. I just wanted to see what came out of me, and ‘A Dawn To Fear’ is the result of that.” – vocalist/guitarist and lead songwriter Johannes Persson

The band has released their first look into the latest record with the lead single and cinematic video “The Silent Man” (A Dawn To Fear pt.1)

A Dawn To Fear is due out September 20th, you can pre-order it here
