This little collection is a great way for those who got on board for 'Youngbloods' to see where the band came from, for those who already know it's probably worth grabbing for the unreleased b-sides alone.

Read it for yourself, Daylight’s mission speaks on its own– ‘Dispirit’. Where passion spawns from experience, this band proves that to be personal is to be pure, the central essence of any successful musical piece. Whilst only three tracks in total, the latest 7” of Six Feet Under newcomers demonstrate a matured sound and a focused direction sharp enough to penetrate the feelings of any hardcore heavyweight. A keyhole into the minds and souls of Pennsylvania’s most miserable.

Both of these songs are a must have for Alexisonfire fans and a great example of how talented this band are as they have done their home work and chosen two iconic Aussie rock songs and given them a unique but respectful twist, just like good covers should.

They say that with age comes great maturity. I’m not really sure what happened along the path of My Chemical Romance, but somewhere along the track the bike ran off course and veered into a cauldron of mass bewilderment and chaos. Maybe it was the hair dye, maybe it was the strangling jeans, or maybe they just rid their teenage apathy, but for the once emo-punk icons, ‘Danger Days: …’ has redefined their status as masters of the weird and ugly. You’ve been warned.

We Came As Romans have mainly made a paint-by-numbers metalcore record, however there are enough glimmers of outside the square thinking that hint there may be more to this band than 'To Plant A Seed' implies.

'Deceiver' lives up to its hype and is an impressive debut for The Word Alive, metal fans will find plenty here to both satisfy and surprise, keeping that good old metalcore spark alive for a little bit longer.

Continual improvement should never be frowned upon. ‘In Dreams’ might have a typical design that has moments of indifference but as a whole it is effective enough. For now at least.

The band’s very intoxicated guitarist told me a few months ago that this record is one of the “best Australian hardcore releases of the last five years,” and after hearing it, his claim isn’t as silly as I thought it was at the time. Phantoms have released a full-length of absolute quality, a definite contender for Australian hardcore record of the year.

The only disappointing thing about this release is that it’s only two songs long. Considering this is the first thing the band has released in nearly five years, it would have been fantastic if this record contained a few more tracks, but all this does is make me more excited to hear the band’s new full-length that they will be releasing sometime in 2011. The band will be touring Australia for the first time in January/February next year with Such Gold, so make sure you check that shit out if you have the opportunity.

Meakin is doing you a favour, he is giving you the opportunity to get in early and become a fan thus saving you the embarrassment of having to jump on the bandwagon the will eventually follow, it always does when the music is this good this early.
