Horrisonous – A Culinary Cacophony (Memento Mori)

Comprising stalwarts of the Australian underground scene, Horrisonous formed in 2015 and unleashed their first EP of sludgy death metal upon an unsuspecting world a year later. This debut album is awash with the kind of tongue-in-cheek song titles that… Continue Reading →

Germ – Wish (Eisenwald)

Tim Yatras is the man behind Australian act Germ. You may not know him by that name but you should no doubt have heard of some of the versatile acts he has been involved in. Where to start? Well it’s… Continue Reading →
