Northlane are a heavy five piece from Sydney.
Talking Heads talks about the insecurities and anxiety that come with growing up in a violent home with drug addicted parents. That trauma had made it difficult to express vocalist's Marcus Bridge thoughts and ideas in the past, both emotionally and creatively.

Thy Art Is Murder - Death Squad Anthem     Metal/Punk, Hardcore, Metal 13/06/2019
Thy Art Is Murder’s thinking-person’s blackened death metal has challenged and inspired audiences around the globe, from top-tier genre festivals to high-profile tours.
“Death Squad Anthem” is a blazing examination of the current state of politics riddled with hyperactive virtue signalling, extremism and disenfranchisement. The despondency of “Death Squad Anthem” is brought to life with stark socio-political traumatic scenes of warfare, genocide, police states, brutality famine and riots interspersed with those at the helm of the atrocities.

Trash & The Treasures - Projectile     Metal/Punk 13/06/2019
Raucous Blues-Punk with outbreaks of danceable harp-powered groove.
This belter tells a savage tale of a jailbreak gone wrong. Unapologetic recidivism, disregard for human life and failure to plan ahead careen noisily towards an inevitable conclusion. Driven by a heartgripping bassline and punctuated by machine gun drum rolls. Snarling guitar attacks your senses like some particularly unsportsmanlike weapon. It’s unpleasant to listen to but at least it’s short.

Mitchell Mantell - Idjentity     Metal/Punk, Metal, Instrumental, Experimental 31/05/2019
Independent artist/producer from Australia, who aims to create his own style as much as possible and push the boundaries of music and guitar.
Being a modern Rock/Metal track, Idjentity is a great track for everyone from all walks of music life and styles. It is mostly based around the guitars, with added strings and sound effects to create a bigger movie style sound. While aiming to create my own style as much as possible and push the boundaries of music and guitar.

KILL BELL - Baby     Metal/Punk, Garage 21/05/2019
We are a post-punk band with music written by Charlie, Danny and Nick
This song was one we initially never wanted to play during rehearsals. It’s the most exhausting, tiring and intense song in our set and although we’re unfit, that’s why we love it. It’s full of thick sludgy guitars, emotive distorted vocals, and a fun back & forth vocal between Charlie and Danny.

Tempest Rising - Ghosts     Metal/Punk 21/05/2019
Shifting from soaring melody to sheer brutality in a heartbeat, Tempest Rising display a jaw-dropping fluency in heavy music.
Engineered and mixed by Chaos Divine's Simon Mitchell, 'Ghosts' is an absolute pinnacle of songwriting, performance and production - complexly rich in crushing power and virtuosity, yet somehow immovably simple and uplifting.
