Have not done this for a while, but with a bunch of killer tours coming up - Full of Hell, Sete Star Sept, Sleep and Whitehorse/Methdrinker before the end of the year - I thought I’d get back into the swing of things. The last few months has been spectacular for shows, with the Neurosis, Conan and Windhand tours all kicking arse, and that does not include Torche last weekend, which I unfortunately missed.
Young Melbourne doomsters obliterate all comers with their debut release.
Killer heavy space rock from Sweden. Great leads and Hawkwindy keys.
Hooks and looks - great heavy metal from this now-split German/Swedish group.
The VeeBees, Stanley Knife (Sydney) and Brown Paper Bag (South Coast), Saturday 25 October at The Chop Shop.
