The Black Dahlia Murder interview with Trevor by Mark Jenkins. TBDM, pure metal legends and if you are late to the party; dig deep, because this is an amazingly creative band with a solid discography; particularly Noctural (2007) and Nightbringers (2017, and easily one of the best albums of last year!!!) as the pinnacle of their career. I had the chance to have a chatter with the fucking legend that is Trevor and to be honest i could have chatted to the bloke for 2 more hours, certified top guy and insightful as fuck.
It was a fantastic interview and you really need to check out their sensational tour this month with Aborted (and killer local supports) who I also interviewed recently. Make the effort and your head and soul will be crushed.

Integrity interview with Dwid on the eve of their Australian Tour.
True creatives and artisans make art and music for themselves. It may reflect some internal belief or struggle or perhaps dismay at the external world, but it’s always personal. The message should be interpreted by the senses of the audience and not guided by the artist. Integrity is a definitive landmark band because they defy all genres and still produces albums that challenge you on every level. And this, unfortunately, is rare in the age of bands simply playing it safe. Integrity combines art, music and a grim mystique to a style that can only be deemed as heavy as fuck.
Known for being one of the most incendiary and influential bands in hardcore and modern metal history, apocalyptic heavy music icons INTEGRITY finally are touring Australia this month. Their catalog is simply unbeatable with classic albums like Those Who Fear Tomorrow, Systems Overload, Humanity is the Devil, Seasons in the Size of Days and more …
Bastard Squad- Without a doubt one of the most influential punk bands in Australia and for me personally, the band as a teenager that introduced me to local punk and it's community. From their first demo to the current album, they have always steered away from trends and always remained as punk as fuck. Despite endless lineup changes, this band has not only toured overseas but scored support slots for pretty much every big name punk gig in Australia. Lyrically and musically they have always remained progressive, and the current album "Hate City" is a testament to this statement.
I was proudly chuffed to interview Jason and also reviewed their current album. I honestly believe Bastard Squad are as pivotal to the Australian punk scene (as well as Vicious Circle, Tutti Parze and Warp Spasm) as Mindsnare is to Aussie Hardcore. Great to see Bastard Squad still kicking and not resting on their laurels, but rather challenging the sociopolitical impact of the modern-day landsca…
Hymns of the Dead review at Dark Mofo, 19th June 2019 Odeon Theatre.
This event is unrelentingly and lovingly tagged ‘’The International House of Metal” and for us who celebrate this genre and all the side meanderings around it, it is one of the gigs of the year.
This year as with the previous years absolutely promised so, so much and superseded all degrees of epic greatness by the end of the evening.
First up were New Zealand purveyors of crushing war metal, Heresiarch. You know when you have a lead singer that looks likes peak Phil Anselmo, (but without the redneck comments) and has such supreme blackened death vocals and evil swagger then you know the opening band has the fucking goods. I was overwhelmed by the sheer heaviness of this four-piece, everything was so barbaric and heavy, but at the same time-besides the vocals and absolute war-machine style of drumming; none of the bass lines or guitar riffs stood out. And certainly on their releases, this is so much more clear cut, bu…
