Review + Photos: THE DARKNESS at Metropolis Fremantle, Perth on 11/03/20

It’s not often that Perth sees queues span the length of Fremantle’s Southern Terrace, but on Wednesday the 10th of March, a sea of skinny jeans, animal print and big hair appeared outside Metropolis Fremantle to witness international rock powerhouse The Darkness.

Review: MONO At The Rosemount Hotel, Perth On 4/3/20

Rarely am I lost for words when it comes to writing reviews, but I am yet to find one that adequately captures the musical brilliance of Mono. Transcendent, visceral and illuminating all come to mind, but as their electric guitarist Takaakira “Taka” Goto once stated, “Music is communicating the incommunicable… the music needs to transcend […]

1000MODS at Lucy’s Love Shack, Perth on 12/4/19

If you haven’t heard of 1000mods, let me do you the favour. Formed in 2006, 1000mods is the quintessential embodiment of the European heavy underground, proudly representing their vibrant Greek culture with a ferocious, riff-driven sound. The Greek Stoner Rock legends hit Perth streets on Friday the 12th of April as part of their Australian […]

DEAFHEAVEN and ZEAL & ARDOR at Chevron Gardens, Perth on 22/02/19

Everybody loves Friday night, but do you know what makes a Friday night even better? DEAFHEAVEN and ZEAL & ARDOR performing live, that’s what. These international Metal powerhouses united for an intoxicatingly violent performance at Chevron Gardens as part of the Perth Festival, and if I were to summarise the performance with just one word, […]

ALESTORM at Capitol, Perth on 6/2/19

THE PRODIGY at RAC Arena, Perth on 24/1/19

Known for shattering the music genre paradigm, UK Rave veterans The Prodigy set the RAC Arena alight as they kicked off their Australian Tour in true Prodigy style.

DEF LEPPARD and the SCORPIONS at the RAC Arena, Perth on 2/11/18

With roads backed up for miles, it’s not hard to tell when something big is happening in Perth.  Perthians shamelessly lined the streets; a sea of DEF LEPPARD shirts faded with age, giving away those who had grown up with the hard rock legends. Whilst Hysteria may have been released 31 years ago, the album […]

DEEZ NUTS at Amplifier Capitol, Perth on 20/10/18

Dwelling somewhere between the realms of Rap Rock, Hardcore Punk, Rap core, and Nu Metal, DEEZ NUTS put on one banger of a show last night at Amplifier Capitol. The Melburnian group performed alongside RATKING, WORLDS APART, and OLD DEVIL as part of their second national tour for 2018, following their recent 10-year anniversary tour […]

TESSERACT & CIRCLES at Capitol, Perth on 11/9/18

It’s apparent that an unsuspecting Tuesday night will not stop Perthians from relishing in the musical mastery of progressive Metal. UK prog legends TESSERACT, supported by Melbourne powerhouse CIRCLES and Perth’s very own CHAOS DIVINE, put on one hell of a show at Capitol, Perth, on Tuesday the 11th of September. By virtue of the […]
