Parading and Bum Creek

Melodic dreamdrone masters Parading had their album launch with experimental synth lords Bum Creek supporting. The album’s out through Melbourne based Z-Man Records and the album is fucking good so go get it. It features crowd favourite Where are you taking us with hypnotic baratone vocals effortlessly floating over Pete Bain-esque bass runs.

Back from Japan, Thrall are playing in all the darkest venues that don’t have sleeping neighbours. Black metal, really worth checking out. You can see their video here

Mess O’ Reds played first, they were proportionately brutal. Good new band, recently signed to Teakle’s Rough Skies Records label. You can listen to them by clicking here
