This formidable debut is as picturesque as the moment you decided to shelf your first pill, swig the remaining dregs from last week's goon bag, tonsil slap your best friends younger sister and donkey punch your way into the mosh pit. So, in layman's terms, Infernal Cakewalk is one fuck-off debut! Mesa Cosa are six suburban rat bags thrown into a city of unknowns, living in (no doubt)...

Jason Biggs and Seann William-Scott: most of you know them as the guys who sexually-assaulted a pie and unknowingly drank jizz in some of the most memorable scenes in Hollywood history, and they’re back for the fourth chapter in perhaps the most quoted and sentimental film franchise amongst teenagers in the late ‘90s/early ‘00s – American Pie. We sit down with the boys in an...

Four years has been the biggest gap between Lambchop albums, but when Kurt Wagner’s gruff, gentle vocal cuts in with the lyric ‘Don't know what the fuck they talk about’ on the new album’s opening song If Not I’ll Just Die, it’s as if they’d never been away. And just like that particular lyric, Wagner hasn’t paid any mind to what has been happening outside...

Cansei de Ser Sexy might translate as ‘tired of being sexy’ but last week’s show at the Corner Hotel proved CSS are far from it.  Visiting our shores for the first time as a foursome since the departure of Adraiano Cintra in November, the curtains of the Corner open to reveal the Brazilian party crew in a pose and ready for action. Lead singer Lovefoxx sets the tone, asking the...

“If I’m wrong, I’ll only let two chicks suck my dick instead of the normal 5. That’s how serious I am. Just wait. I ain’t wrong.” It’s the tweet which sparked one of the biggest local music stories of the year. Steel Panther drummer Stix Zadinia broke the news that the Van Halen-headlined Soundwave Revolution was no more, meaning Steel Panther would not be hitting our shores as planned....

Scotland’s hardest working merchants of distortion are back with a follow-up to their mostly acclaimed Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will. In typical Mogwai fashion, the five man band have taken what is perceived to be their sound on yet another detour. The Earth Division EP finds their tried-and-true aggression being expanded to explore all of its melodic scope. Hell, you...

Man, Mastodon's Crack The Skye is a hard album to top. Heavy, progressive, psychedelic, multilayered, complex – any concept album that knits together such disparate elements as Rasputin and astral travel has gotta be followed up by something pretty big. Just like Crack The Skye, The Hunter (Roadrunner) finds Mastodon doing what they do best – combining lyrical and musical creativity – yet the...

Support slots are a funny thing. Within the space of two months, I saw Jay-Z and Fucked Up perform as guests for U2 and The Bronx respectively. Both sets were incredible in their respective sense. But the label of support comes loaded with an impedance of context, one which wouldn't materialise in the festival setting, for instance. Lucky for us, Fucked Up have graced us with their presence...

The end of the year draws ever closer, and that usually means a ballsy list of all the grouse albums what I done rocked out to quite heartily over the course of 2011 'n' that. One reader of the ol' Metaloc has requested that I keep it all-Austrayan this year, so that's what we're gonna do. This is the local shit that busted my speakers but good:

I firmly believe that the Vasco Era are consummate professionals. I hear you scoffing and rolling your eyes, but hear me out (can you hear someone rolling their eyes? 


Hmmm, for the sake of this review… yes) In a day and age where indie rock bands find a blueprint, get some fans and repeat until no one cares anymore, The Vasco Era have released their third Long Player and true...
