Throwback Dr Acula get “No Sleep”!

Following the fake news of Wiz Khalifa’s death via a faked BBC news post that you can read about here, and not for the first time either, following a beef with Kanye West he was pronounced dead on Twitter in 2016, it’s time to resurrect a classic. The Deathcore cover by Dr Acula of the

Throwback: “Slavery” by Spineshank!

While “New Disease” was the staple on the Juke Box on American Pool nights many moons ago it was the 2003 follow up album “Self Destructive Pattern” from Los Angeles Californian Industrial Metallers Spineshank that grabbed our attention. That was largely due to the vast, night and day improvement in vocals from Jonny Santos as

Throwback: “Floyd The Barber” by Nirvana!

What is wrong with the World when the cardigan worn by Kurt Cobain on MTV Unplugged sells at auction for more than the cost of a house? The man was a legend and influenced a generation but even so, it’s just a cardigan, right? We’re going to head back to 1989 and the album that

Throwback: “Step Back” by Superheist!

The Metal scene is vibrant in Australia at the moment with numerous exports appearing on American and European tours left right and centre. Northlane, Polaris, Void Of Vision to name but three of the acts currently making big names for themselves internationally. There is a band however who blazed a trail between 1993 and 2004

Throwback: “Deathrider” by Anthrax!

Setting the Cat amongst the Pigeons it’s time for a controversial throwback to get the week set off right. Back in 2004 Anthrax recorded an album made up of 14 tracks from their 1983 to 1990 era with their current line-up so that John Bush sung tracks originally released with Joey Belladonna and Neil Turbin

Throwback: “Smile” by Taproot!

Last week Kerrang Magazine published an interesting article on “The 13 Most Nu-Metal Moments Of All Time“. It’s a decent read and something of a nostalgia trip down the yellow brick road otherwise known as memory lane with as you’d expect mentions of KoRn and Limp Bizkit but also a resurgent Evanescence and of course

Throwback: “Sugar Coated Sour” from The Dillinger Escape Plan!

28th September marked the 20th Anniversary of “Calculating Infinity” from The Dillinger Escape Plan. The bands debut full length was produced by Steve Evetts and appeared via Relapse Records, the last release to feature original vocalist Dimitri Minakakis before Greg Puciato took the microphone. Based on the experiences in dysfunctional relationships of Minakakis the lyrics

Throwback: “Payback” by Flaw!

Ultimate Guitar Magazine published an article last week discussing why “Lateralus” by Tool is the best Tool song ever and you can read about that here. That thought took us on a trip down the yellow brick road otherwise known as memory lane when someone who had sunk their body weight in booze tried to

Throwback: “Who You Gonna Call?” By Dr. Acula!

Given the news that a band that we consider to be one of the Godfathers of Party Deathcore are returning to the stage for the first time since 2015 with their original line up in December, we figured it was time we paid tribute to Dr. Acula! We’re also going to be controversial with it

Throwback: “Double X Minus” by Five Pointe O!

Way back in 2002 we saw the Roadrunner Roadrage Tour as it rolled up on Brighton’s Concord 2 like a tank with a trio of Roadrunner Records Metalcore bands in their infancy. Two of those bands have remained on the scene and outlived the stereotypes by reinventing themselves while staying true to their roots. Killswitch
