This week’s Digimag cover brings good news with the return of Osaka Punch as bass player Reggie joins us for a chat about their new drummer and plans for the future.
Bounty Hunters drop in for an update, while Tempest Rising run us through their crushing new single “Awakening” which is also one of the featured premieres this week.
Also on the premiere list is Icarus Lives with their version of “Holding Out For A Hero” while Distorted Views revisit their earlier single “Propaganda” with a new film clip.
We have touring news from the HEAVY sponsored Black Rheno East Coast run of shows with Diskust also announcing a few shows South of the border and Astrodeath coming to the Gold Coast this Sunday. Thank Satan It’s Friday resurfaces as well plus Alien Weaponry have announced plans for a concert with the New Zealand orchestra.
There’s new music from Proposal, Illusionary, Kai Cult, Kids of Yesterday, Rumours, The Kids, Amommoth and Snake Bite Whisky plus we give the HEAVY stamp of approval to the recent album from The Amenta, Revelator.
Australian music continues to flourish in our backyard and with the quality of releases coming across this desk, it is only a matter of time before our artists start commanding attention overseas as well. There’s just too much talent to be restrained within the boundaries of our great country, the only question is are the rest of the world ready for the inevitable?
Until next week, stay HEAVY
