All Fail opens the i.anomaly EP with driving drums, rolling riffs and the intensity of Zichxynas vocals driving home a lyrical message of contempt & frustration. The dangers presented by resource shortages, social engineering, and other modern challenges poses the question; as individuals are we doing enough?

The Last Martyr - Fear     Metal/Punk, Rock 01/03/2019
The Last Martyr are a melodic post hardcore sensation from Melbourne.
‘Fear’ is about realising that sometimes your fears aren’t your own; they are the fears of others projected onto you. This is almost always because your actions are bringing up someone else’s own limiting beliefs and insecurities which they haven’t been able to overcome. 'Fear' is about overcoming our own fears and encouraging others to do the same.

Greyjacks - Upper Class Adolescents on Psychedelics     Metal/Punk, Ska 28/02/2019
Greyjacks are 4 band-shirt wearing young adults who play ska-punk to people without their permission. We tend to rock up to gigs way too early. Putting the punk in punctual.

Regular Gonzales is an Australian prog/stoner band, combining bluesy riffs and harsh breakdowns in the vein of Every Time I Die, Converge, Fu Manchu & The Sword.
We live, we die, we don't have a damn clue why. Days to weeks, months to years, all wasted living in fear
We occupy this thin slice
Between the fire and the ice
When all is said and done always on the edge of destruction

Myoora - Moon Grotto (feat. Stephen Taranto)     Metal/Punk, Rock, Ambience, Instrumental 22/02/2019
For a first release, Moon Grotto serves as a launch pad for an exciting career for both Nesci and Pinto.
Moon Grotto, title track of the EP, quickly rises from a soft, airy introduction into a heaving tide of triumphant guitars and technical prowess. Still gilded with light keys and intricate drums, the song rounds out to an impressive, scorching guest solo from the hands of Stephen Taranto, guitarist of The Helix Nebula – delivered with remarkable precision and soul.

The Donald Trumpets - Beer Party     Metal/Punk, Ska 22/02/2019
The Donald Trumpets formed as a way to express the dismay and existential dread of the ageing millennial (then putting it all aside for three brass-filled minutes at a time).

Japam - Roak     Metal/Punk, Rock 20/02/2019
JAPAM want to bring the bounce! The band combine influences from the heavy, technical groove of modern djent to the melodic appeal of 90’s pop and rock music.
'Roak’ is the signature “djent” song on the EP, and a personal favourite for most of the band. This track really pushes the band’s limits in terms of playability and showcases their capabilities. Relentlessly heavy from start to finish, it’s a headbanger’s dream.

Voyager - Brightstar     Metal/Punk, Rock 20/02/2019
Aptly defined as "A metal incarnation of 80s legends A-HA", VOYAGER has always appealed to a massive spectrum of music connoisseurs.
Brightstar is about the power of rationality, of the importance of science as an art, of facts, of the demise of empirical evidence in favour of blind belief in idols who spit forth a torrent of nonsense and generally about not believing in something or someone because it's shiny and bright and promises a warm blanket of comfort.

CASCADES - Rossiya     Metal/Punk 19/02/2019
CASCADES explores elements of crushing hardcore and experimental noise, with rich orchestral swells of analog synthesisers and a strong underlying melodic thread.
The polar ice cap at the Arctic is melting. Retreating ice is beginning to expose deposits of rare-earth metals used in the production of smartphones and military guidance systems.

Scyphozoan - One and the Same     Metal/Punk, Rock, Electronic, Experimental 14/02/2019
Evocative, dark and deep, Scyphozoan move story and song together as one providing an immersive experience for the listener.
Moving from sweet and soft to frantic and heavy, One and the Same is a commentary on the seductive nature of anger and letting yourself go.

Other tracks by Scyphozoan:  Panacea  -  Gestalt
The Omnific - The Stoic     Metal/Punk, Instrumental, Rock 12/02/2019
The Omnific is a progressive instrumental band from Melbourne, Australia featuring two bass players and a drummer.
The Stoic starts slow and atmospheric until the first bass chimes in. The track continues to build in tempo with all three musicians intertwining their instruments together with intricate bass and drum work.

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.
