Unkle K's Bands of the Week
Perth PV/grinders Flesh Police have released a fantastic demo. 14 tracks of incredibly catchy grindy powerviolence. Best new Australian band I've heard in a while, would love to see them live.
The Psyke Project
I don't really like the term post-hardcore, even though I like a lot of bands playing this style. Denmark's The Psyke Project are easily one of the better bands of this genre. They are far from a new band, having been around for over a decade, but his is the first I have heard of them. Their release, Guillotine serves up brutal, intense riffs right from the get go, with tortured vocals setting the pace for the rest of the album. Brilliant sludgy dark hardcore.
Gig of the Week
Come and see I Exist at City Magpies Club this Saturday night, 8 June, before they head off to conquer Europe. Well done lads. Support comes from Hygiene, Machina Genova and the excellent Throat of Dirt. Top marks for the flyer as well.
