Affinity Minus Perfection - Voice in Volumes     Metal/Punk 17/11/2018
Hailing from Rockhampton, AMP is a five piece metal outfit whose sound falls between the pace and brutal breakdowns of metalcore, and the soaring sing along choruses of Post Hardcore.
The new single "Voice in Volumes" is about one of his first early high school projects. He pushed so hard for it and ended up pushing those who were involved further away and less interested. It was a massive learning curve on how he would approach and try to improve his interaction with those he worked with in the future.

The Last Martyr - Stay Awake     Metal/Punk 17/11/2018
The Last Martyr are Melbourne's newest melodic metal sensation.
Stay Awake is about the moment, right before you hit a massive goal - where you consider giving up. I was trying to convince myself to hang in a little longer and keep my game face on. I believe when this happens, it’s the universe’s way of testing us to see how bad we want something.
