UK duo Slaves are here to prove that punk’s not dead and boy, oh boy have they been doing just that.  With a solid catalogue of harsh bluesy guitar riffs from Laurie Vincent coupled with the energetic drumming and fierce social commentary of Isaac Holman’s lyrics these guys are making sure that people don’t forget the heyday of the UK punk scene.

They’ve been pumping out release after release of cracking material since 2012 and this year sees them offer up the short-but-oh-so...

Sydney metallers Northlane just seem to go from strength to strength, between their crushing live show and the ever-increasing quality of each studio release there’s just no stopping this runaway train. After surprise-dropping their fourth studio album, Mesmer, in 2017, the lads have wasted no time in getting back to work and this year sees the release of their fifth, and arguably best, effort Alien.

The album starts out strong with a hard electro-bass intro to opening track Details Matter makin...


The crowd of people amassed in and around The Triffid is beaming with excitement from the moment the doors open and so they should be, they’re about to bear witness to one of the greatest live bands this country has to offer.

Karnivool have been pretty quiet the last few years, appearing briefly for the odd live show here and there but over the last 6 months or so their activity has been ramping up and tonight it takes the form of The Praxis Tour hitting one of Brisbane’s premier live venues...

Frank Iero returns this year with yet another cracking album, this time under the moniker of Frank Iero & The Future Violents. Barriers marks the third solo outing for the prolific musician who spent the better part of his career as rhythm guitarist for emo kings My Chemical Romance.

The gospel-esque A New Day’s Coming opens the album with it’s organ intro accompanied by Iero’s signature off-key vocals, something which only a handful of singers can really pull off, Iero most certainly being o...

It’s been 11 long years since Thrice have graced our shores and the fans have turned out in droves to witness their return to Australian stages. And what a venue to host it too! I’ve written before of the glory that is The Triffid and I can’t stress enough just how amazing this room is. The sound, the lights, just everything make for an excellent show no matter who is playing on its stage.

Brisbane lads The Comfort are tasked with opening tonight’s proceedings and as they take to the stage the...

Superheist have quite the history in the Australian rock/metal scene. Having fought their way through the thick of it since the early 90’s, no matter how many times they get knocked down they just keep coming back stronger than ever. Boasting what is arguably the best lineup in the bands history (held firmly together by founding member DW Norton), they have just unleashed their 4th studio album upon the world and let me tell you, it is well worth your time.

The album begins with lead single The...

Australia's IN THE BURIAL have released a total epic symphonic black metal masterpiece with their latest album Lamentations : Of Deceit & Redemption.
This record really impressed me, every song is so well written and well thought out that I found myself replaying it even with it's 67 minute run time.

Musically, this is symphonic black metal at its best and the band have managed to create a huge wall of sound of layered tremolo picked guitars, synths, thunderous bass, shrieking vocals, blast be...

Berserkers were known for being some of the most brutal warriors in history. Tales tell of them being so enthralled by fury, that their trance like states would allow them to enter battle bare-chested with only a wolf or bear skin instead of traditional armour. They were a class of Viking warrior feared by all due to their incredible weapon skills, supernatural reflexes and their ability to utterly destroy everything and everyone in sight. With such a brutal subject to concept an album around, ...

It’s rare in Australia that we get to see a triple bill of high caliber bands unless it is a festival or arena show but
tonight we are treated to three of Sweden’s most brutal and best and in one of my favourite venues The Triffid.
Despite there being another major touring act playing the other side of the valley, the Triple Bill Kill show has enough draw power to pack the room even for an early start.

Scoring the opening slot, Brisbane death metal legends Laceration Mantra are no stranger t...


The Tivoli doors are closed on arrival. Waiting in the queue outside, punters receive a pleasant surprise when the members of Sevendust stroll past. A curious murmur of recognition rises among those present, and I marvel at the civilised nature of music fans compared to years gone by. Suddenly aware of their surroundings, the band calls out reassuringly to fans, promising a swift return before vanishing around a corner. The doors swing open and the venue is immediately buzzing. I wonder if the...
