Posted on April 13, 2013 | 3 CommentsLast year saw the first full-length album, “Metaphere” from solo experimental rock/metal act Trillion Red. At the time Patrick had four tracks left over that didn’t quite fit the record and rather than shelve them he has released them on this EP “Echo Road”, subtitled...
Posted on March 20, 2013 | 7 CommentsLast Saturday the Ev in Melbourne played host to the launch of the split EP by Xenograft, Kettlespider and Bear the Mammoth, three progressive experimental instrumental bands carving a niche in the local scene. They were joined by another instrumental quartet, The Black Galaxy Experience, who...
Posted on January 16, 2013 | 2 CommentsGilbert Potts was impressed with the new album from Sydney’s We Lost The Sea so we sent him to talk to Nathaniel D’Ugo to find out more about the band, inspiration behind their latest album, “The Quietest Place on Earth,” playing live and much, much...
Posted on July 20, 2012 | No Comments“IO” by dropbunny is unlike anything I’ve heard in a long time. It’s harsh, heavy, intelligent, ever changing and unsettling; light acoustic sections give way to detuned heavy parts, which then defer to atmospheric soundscapes, and a whole host of other styles.

Posted on July 9, 2012 | 1 CommentI love being surprised. Not in that “Boo! Surprise!” jump out at you kinda way but in that pleasant, unexpected “Well I never!…this is a nice surprise”. You get the drift. Let’s take Shmu‘s debut album “Discipline/Communication” as a prime example. Shmu is the alter...
Posted on June 8, 2012 | No CommentsBeing new to the world of post-metal, I was genuinely unsure what the genre could offer me. In fact it’s fair to say I was more than a little bit dubious about the whole thing. Thank heavens then for Sydney’s Dumbsaint, along with several other...
Posted on April 25, 2012 | No Comments2011 was a case of another day, another Boris record. “Attention Please” is their 17th studio album and they continue to do whatever they feel like, which appears to be either a good thing or a bad thing with no in between according to most commentators....
Posted on March 25, 2012 | No CommentsHella’s 2011 release, ‘Tripper’, is definitely not for the faint of heart. This two-piece, comprised of drummer Zach Hill and guitarist Spencer Seim, makes the kind of complex, difficult-to-categorize music that pretty much every other rock duo would kill to make (I am looking at...
Posted on March 15, 2012 | No CommentsEmpty Space Orchestra explode into your lounge with their intense post-jazz, crunk, progressive rock, frenetic spasmodic beats and noise-a-plenty. Then with an instinct for mood, they drop back to some ambient meandering post-rock driven by guitar, drums and bass but heavily beefed up with a...
