NASHO is a four-piece supergroup made up of previous and current members of Royal Headache, Good Throb (UK) and DISPOSSESSED

NoiseArt Collective - Cyclops Turning     Metal/Punk, Experimental, Christian 31/07/2018
A one-man show, NoiseArt Collective delivers a variety of grunge rock, synth pop and toned-down harmonies that leave the listener entering a new sonic realm.
“Cyclops Turning,” commences with a great guitar centered hook, somewhat reminiscent of classic late 80s rock. It then forms a relentless beat underlying the lyrics. The song narrator likens Cyclops to a woman’s gaze upon him, making him wonder just what thoughts she has of him. NoiseArt Collective smartly provides no resolution to the question, leaving the listener wondering.

On My Command - Starfighter MMCXVI     Metal/Punk, Metal 25/06/2018
On My Command is a melodic, heavy and energetic metal band from Brisbane, influenced by the classic metal sounds of bands like Iron Maiden, Metallica and Judas Priest.
Starfighter is one of my favourite songs on the album, and has my favourite solo, so I felt it provided a good representation of what this album will deliver for people. It contains everything I wanted On My Command to be- heavy riffs, powerful drums, melodic leads and memorable vocals.

Way Shit - Don't Stab Me     Metal/Punk, Folk, Garage 22/06/2018
Way Shit describe themselves as 'Footscray emo punk', and they are Shelley Smith (she/her - guitar/vocals/songwriting), Michael Voulgarellis (he/him - bass) and Kevin Baker (he/him - drums).
‘Don’t Stab Me’ details the harassment female identifying and non-binary people have to deal with while taking public transport, both on a micro level of aggression: the way society normalises controlling women and non-binary people, and also the macro level: of escalation of threats that lead to the normalisation of violence (and murder) against women and non-binary people.
