Philosophobia – Philosophobia – Album Review

Artist: Philosophobia Album Title: Philosophobia Label: Sensory Records Date of Release: 24 June 2022 For all of my new-found love of some more extreme styles of metal, I will always gravitate back to the progressive metal scene, because it is one of my favourite, and most enduring styles of music, particularly the more ‘classic’ melodic  Continue Reading »

Everdawn – Cleopatra – Album Review

Artist: Everdawn Album Title: Cleopatra Label: Sensory Records Date of Release: 5 February 2021 Those who know my tastes in heavy music will know that when it comes to symphonic metal, it has to be very good to catch my attention.

Artist: Until Rain Album Title: Inure Label: Sensory Records Date of Release: 28 April 2017 I tried to get this review published before the European release date of 28th April but I have failed rather spectacularly.

Artist: Damnations Day Album Title: A World Awakens Label: Sensory Records Release date: 24 March 2017 I have gone on record before about the strength of the heavy music scene in Australia; there is literally no let-up in the number of bands that are coming through.

Essential rock & metal releases still to come in 2016 – Part 1

This time last year, I was waxing lyrical about how strong 2015 had been by the half-way mark, stating that I had already compiled a strong Top 20, perfectly strong enough to stand up to scrutiny at the full year end. Well, if it’s possible, 2016 has been even better. It’s like all of my  Continue Reading »
