Plovers - Fell Asleep At The Phone     Metal, Punk, Alternative 25/02/2020
Hatched in Melbourne in 2017 under the influence of bands like Future of the Left, Cloud Nothings, and the Jesus Lizard, Plovers is post-something, and not afraid to yell it.
To write this, we mashed Powderfinger through a meat grinder. It's about the suffocating claustrophobia of being trapped in an anxious cycle of needlessly checking your phone, and how existential terror can build when a mundane routine becomes compulsive. It's a gutteral, noise rock thumbscrew of a song, which means that it's absolutely ideal for breakfast shows. Look out, commuters.

Other tracks by Plovers:  Monty Hall  -  Charcoal
The Motion Below - Dead Ends     Metal, Rock, Alternative 13/02/2020
The Motion Below are a post-hardcore band from Melbourne
"Dead Ends" was produced, mixed + mastered at The Loud Noise Estate and contrary to the content of the lyrics, the song is upbeat and combines a fragile tone that guides the track like a light in the dark. The band contrast soaring cleans with fearsome heavies and flaunt this style to the absolute best of the bands abilities.

Bolt Gun - The Altar of Lies Will Not Be Destroyed     Metal 10/02/2020
Bolt Gun have had a busy schedule in the lead-up to Begotten’s release: Drummer Talya Valenti has earned a Western Australian Music (WAM) award for percussionist of the year.
The Altar of Lies Will Not Be Destroyed is almost orchestral in it’s delivery – driven by ascending strings and an undertow of growling, distant guitarwork and rhythmic drumming. On one level, it maintains the elegance of a film-score, setting a scene of distance and un-ease through sound alone.

Deathbeds - What's Yours Is Mine And What's Mine Is Mine     Metal 30/01/2020
Canberra-based six piece melodic metal outfit.
"What's Yours Is Mine And What's Mine Is Mine" narrates the theme of greed - mixed and mastered by Scottie Simpson and tracked at Colossal Tracks Studios. Beginning with an ear pricking melodic riff, leading way into the wall of sound that ensues. Deathbeds utilise Maddison Samin's soaring female vocals and keys to juxtapose against the driving chaos.

Starve - Shiver     Metal 30/01/2020
Chaotic metalcore four-piece from Melbourne
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Scottie Simpson (Alpha Wolf, Polaris, Gravemind), "Shiver" demonstrates pure brutality and solidifies Starve as a band to watch in the new year. "Shiver" is about feeling disconnected from yourself, falling into toxic patterns and being unable to remove yourself from those unhealthy situations.

Revoid - Tooth Avenue     Metal, Alternative 23/01/2020
Brisbane metalcore outfit Revoid offer a unique insight into growth derived from personal perspective and lived experience, expressed through their gritty tones, hard-hitting beats and evocative, passionate lyrics.
A continuation in the tale of development, Tooth Avenue illustrates the point after realisation, the conviction to move forward, despite the hardships and challenges. In conjunction to the grungy, ragged tones, the vocals and lyrics are a great deal more aggressive, pertaining to bitter and almost remorseful battle toward a better place.

Other tracks by Revoid:  Honesty's Policies
Devonian - Witchcraft     Metal, Rock 16/01/2020
DEVONIAN is a unique, female-fronted metal band, serving up a blend of complex riffs, tasty choruses, and punchy breakdowns.

Jackson Marshall - Revenge     Metal, Alternative, Instrumental, Indie 16/01/2020
Multiinstrumentalist Hailing from Northern NSW who composers/performs all instruments in my recordings
wrote and recorded this song "Revenge" within 16hrs. This song stemmed from being bored one night and i picked up the guitar and within minutes I had the melody so I decided to sit down and Structure the guitar parts before doing the drum track. within hours this song was ready to be distributed \m/

Vessel - Twenty Twenty     Metal, Rock 15/01/2020
A cosmic fusion of desert grooves and stoner blues.
This song is about the ignorance people feel towards the preservation of our planet. In Australia, we are dragging behind the western world in the fields of renewable energy, recycling infrastructure and climate policy. Musically, the song is a nod to desert rock bands like Kyuss and Truckfighters, fitting the theme of the post-apocalyptic future we may be facing.

Other tracks by Vessel:  Vagabond Blues  -  Dark in the Light
Spacegoat - The Push     Metal, Alternative 20/12/2019
Melodic, female fronted metal from Victoria. Once described as "if Faith No More, Tool and No Doubt had a baby". May or may not be actual goats from space.
The Push has a groovy, almost rap-metal feel about it. Lyrically it sounds like a revenge song, and was inspired when the singer witnessed first hand how nasty people can become to one another when grief takes hold.

Revoid - Running With Scissors     Metal, Rock 09/12/2019
Revoid makes modern metalcore, with deep, immersive tones and a big nod to classic metal flavours. Their high energy performances are matched by their commitment to versatility, relatability and entertainment.
Running with Scissors (Metalcore/Indie rock) – Another chapter in this story, as this track progresses it becomes a view in hindsight from the light at the end of the tunnel. The precarious balance on the knifes edge of relapse, and a desperation to keep the forward momentum and to avoid regression, no matter the cost.

Headwreck - As Is (ft. Luke Harriss)     Metal, Punk 06/12/2019
Headwreck is a hardcore trio formed of friends between Brisbane and Gold Coast.
"As Is" was instrumentally tracked by Cory Judd of Colossal Tracks Studio (She Cries Wolf, Days Like These) and vocally tracked by vocalist Connor Hickman and guitarist Jamo Benadie. The new single tackles society's opposing beliefs and opinions and highlights that rather than fighting each other to prove a point, it's crucial to open up discussion and hear others out.

生 Conform 死 - Luxury Letdown     Metal, Alternative 26/11/2019
生 Conform 死 (Live. Conform. Die) is a Nu-Metal/Metalcore/Deathcore band from Perth , WA
Luxury Letdown is a parody of the disingenuous portrayal of top-shelf lifestyles in social media and the un-meetable standards of modern beauty pushed by high-end fashion brands. Conform scrutinise the questionable ethics of faceless and overpriced companies who use over-sexualisation and harmful market manipulation to sell products, resulting in the development of personal insecurities in young, malleable minds.

Taking influence from the likes of The Body, Suffer, Iron Lung and Merzbow, Diploid present an intense blend of grind, hardcore and noise to their listeners.
Less, the second single off Glorify, is just over a blistering minute of thrashing guitars and hammering drums. Incorporating beats and riffs with elements of grind, crust punk and hardcore, the song is dominated by vocalist/guitarist Mariam B’s blood-curdling howls and intense shredding.

Intrøspect - Sovereign (Ft. Jacob Wilkes)     Metal, Rock 20/11/2019
Intrøspect is a four-piece prog band from Sydney, NSW
This new single 'Sovereign' features a fierce vocal performance from Above, Below's Jacob Wilkes, and is Intrøspect’s first track to include screamed vocals. Jacob’s devastating performance dances with frontwoman Felicity Jayne’s ethereal voice to construct a haunting atmosphere, underscored by an onslaught of dense riffage and crushing breakdowns.
