Album Review: KING PARROT Dead Set

Posted by | May 19, 2015

I have all the respect in the world for Australia’s King Parrot. They’re a band that has basically taken the step of diving head first and full on into doing their band at 110%. The quintet has employed a combination of sheer determination, old fashioned elbow grease, financial risk and business sense and a little bit of that innate Down Under lunacy to make their band a full time endeavour.

Album Review: FAITH NO MORE Sol Invictus

Sol Invictus has been a long time coming, given that the band have been touring consistently off and on since 2009, and the most striking thing about it is that it resists the temptation to recapture the old funk thrash sound of The Real Thing, instead picking up pretty much where Album of the Year left off

Album Review: NOISEM Blossoming Decay

Posted by | May 4, 2015

Noisem is a band that some took to and some didn't quite get when they released their PhD grade banger Agony Defined. Some saw didn't see the magic in it and dismissed it as another death/thrash album that remained rooted in the past. Yeah, Agony Defined was a nod to the rip, roaring past and my second favorite album of 2013. However, once you blew the dust off the vinyl jacket you discovered a band that not only performed well and shredded like a cheese grater, but you also found a band that was loaded with potential.
