iridea - Centaurus     Metal/Punk, Metal, Experimental, Atmospheric 14/12/2018
Iridea is an emerging Adelaide-based duo: the Headland brothers, with Matthew playing several guitars, and Daniel as drummer and singer.
Focus single, Centaurus, builds energy gradually from a quiet beginning, and then rips into heavier sections that are like some hellish march. It is a brutal slog through a scorching desert; a wretched individual on a journey with no end in sight.
