Southern Rock

ASG - Blood Drive (Relapse Records)

Muddy goodness...
Release Date: 
27 May 2013 - 11:30pm

ASG's fourth album (their first with Relapse) is a chunky little beast; chockful of sludgy, psychedelic swampiness - I immediately thought of Yellow & Gree

Anthrax, Fozzy, This Is Hell, The Hi-Fi Bar, Melbourne - 28/02/13

Melbourne worshipped music beneath the pulpit of Anthrax ahead of the Soundwave Festival, Fozzy providing their own brand of explosive devotion.

Melbourne's Hi-Fi Bar takes decorating advice from none other than Mick Jagger. It's painted black. All over. Even the green room is painted black.

Tombstone Highway - Ruralizer (Agonia Records)

Scorching Southern rock and metal... from the North of Italy!

Southern groove/doom from Italy? Hold your horses – it’s not as ludicrous as it sounds.

'John Lee Hooker on Xanax through a Marshall Stack'

Rwake's long awaited album Rest has finally been released onto the ravenous public on September 27, 2011.

Chris Jericho - Undisputedly Fozzy

WWE superstar Chris Jericho is one of the busiest men on the planet - but as he comes out to Australia this December, we just had enough time to speak to him about one of his greatest passions: making heavy metal with his band Fozzy.

Talking to Fozzy front man Chris Jericho at 5 in the morning doesn’t faze really him.

Nashville Pussy – From Hell To Texas (SPV/Riot)

Amphetamine-fuelled rock and roll that’ll have you screaming “YeeHa” and guzzling straight shots of whiskey.

It’s been a while between drinks for Nashville Pussy – their last album came out in 2005; but they haven’t been wasting time, hell no, they’ve been touring

Hatchet Dawn – Faith In Chaos (AmpHead/The Orchard Australasia)

Aussie heavy metal that taps into the old and the new and delivers. Hatchet Dawn are definitely a band to keep your eye on.

A five track EP, Faith In Chaos doesn’t over-stay its welcome, but it definitely leaves you
