Evocative, dark and deep, Scyphozoan move story and song together as one providing an immersive experience for the listener.

Windwaker - The Sitch     Metal/Punk, Rock 12/02/2019
Windwaker are a metalcore band from Melbourne.
‘The Sitch’ is the first cut that truly paints who we are in wide spectrum. It’s nearly oxymoronic in its expression – with its lyrical content both dark and depressing, but every part of you just wants to fight that feeling when you listen to it. I really think this song is going to help people. It’s aggressively uplifting.

Complexly rich in crushing power and virtuosity, yet somehow immovably simple and uplifting.
