Taberah- Sinners Lament (Independent)

There'll be no lamenting when this stormer hits the shelves...

Taberah has got to be one of Australia’s best kept secrets.

Desecrator- To The Gallows (Dinner For Wolves)

Straight up Aussie thrash that won't leave you hanging.

Many a fun time to be had with this album
