If you throw a party and this record is not your soundtrack, your party will probably suck.

Seahaven - Reverie Lagoon: Music For Escapism Only

Seahaven - Reverie Lagoon: Music For Escapism Only

22.03.2014 | Matt.S | 0 Comments

What will come as no surprise to anyone is that a review such as this might be quite polarising. There will be one half who agree with what's being said while the other will wholeheartedly disagree. But, that is the beauty of bands such as Seahaven. Although they have an acquired taste as such, it's a gentle reminder that musical aesthetic is held solely in the heart of the listener. Whether or not you like this album, respect and appreciation must be given to a Seahaven for crafting a full-length that feels unique in an otherwise suffocated scene. Although at times, it fails to captivate, the band proves they are more than capable of writing songs that hit the mark and win the championship.

Shackles - Forced to Regress

Shackles - Forced to Regress

09.03.2014 | BlakeG | 0 Comments

While ‘Forced to Regress’ is doubtless one of the most outright barbaric local releases thus far this year, it’s far from simplistic. A roaring goliath of a record that sees an enormous step up from what were already one of the country’s most compelling names in hardcore, it demonstrates the band’s bloodthirsty viciousness and engaging songwriting in equal measure.

Saving Grace - The Urgency

Hardcore kids and metalheads alike will get a lot out of this album. It isn't quite as impressive as some of the the genre's heavyweights, but 'The Urgency' will hopefully garner the band a slew of new fans and open up a lot more opportunities for this New Zealand five-piece.

A debut EP worth the attention of an LP of a band twice their stature, In Vein is an impressive example of what local bands can do in the punk scene.

While incorporating so many sounds into one record can often be a recipe for disaster as bands try too hard to reach every audience possible, this is not the case with Sydonia, as their newest album, 'Reality Kicks,' manages to execute all these different elements of genres coherently.

Skindred - Kill The Power

'Kill The Power' is an eccentric album that has influences from all over the musical spectrum mashed into one. The crazy sound is infectious and intriguing with all these influences working together for a greater purpose, creating an album that you most certainly wont be able to stop playing once you start.

Still Remains - Ceasing To Breathe

Still Remains - Ceasing To Breathe

09.01.2014 | h0lywood | 0 Comments

'Ceasing To Breathe' is a killer comeback record from Still Remains. Their time apart has obviously allowed their skills to grow and now they have returned to make what is arguably the band's best record to date. It has technicality, melody and also the old fashion, signature metalcore elements that they are so well known for. This is a must have in any fans collection.

Switchfoot - Fading West

09.01.2014 | RobFoster | 0 Comments

Switchfoot have kicked off 2014 in a big way, with 'Fading West' coming in as one of the very first releases of the year, and setting the bar high. The album stands out among the band's catalogue, and in nearly two decades as a group is possibly the best that Switchfoot have released.

Your love for this record will depend on what you expect from Sleigh Bells and which of their first two records you side more with? If the answer is that you are a fence sitter, you will thoroughly enjoy 'Bitter Rivals' as it is the best combination of old and new elements this band has created so far.
