It feels as if I'm listening to that classic dark heavy metal that you'd hear in a Guitar Hero tracklist, next to bands like Children of Bodom, Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne. And that bass tone is d i r t y and gritty. Picture this: Psychedelic Porn Crumpets mid existential crisis, prepared for DOOM; that's Kitchen Witch. Mesmerised, you've definitely cast a spell on me.

That riff is so jarring to hear (is that a major scale??) within the mix of a brutal song. It's explosive, it's super heavy, it's wild and easily competes with metal heavyweights of Australia. Absolutely banging work and lovely production, I can't wait to hear more!

Woah, definitely not what I was expecting. This track builds and just soars. Really beautiful vocal tones + performance. Simple but effective guitar solo plus the ebb and flow of the song is so peaceful even though it has some heavy 'ooft' moments. So impressed.

Throwback to the 90s and early 2000s! I felt so young again listening to this, so thank you. It's a nostalgic pop punk indie rock anthem with a catchy as hell chorus. Really digged this song.

I didn't know I needed this until I heard it. Girl power heaven. My anthem for me and my girl friends forever. I can hear and just imagine this song blasting out in nightclubs around the country, especially the ones in Adelaide. Represent.

This song feels reminiscent, dreamy, almost like I've been hit in the stomach with feels and a wild mix of emotions. It sounds very Birds of Tokyo with spacious vibes. Really enjoyed the middle section; the rhythm section playing short and strong notes and the lead guitar playing long palm muted notes, it works like bliss. Adding this to my favourite songs of 2020 for sure.

Okay, I'm a pineapple cruiser kind of gal but this song has me craving a guava. National anthem for all those guava lovers out there, I know about 20 people who'll probably sing this every drinking sesh from now on. I love the skit at the start of the song and it's a catchy and fun tune!

Remember the girls screaming over NSYNC and Backstreet Boys? Well, they're fangirling over Up Late now. This is huge. I'm surprised TikTok hasn't found this song yet and made you guys mega famous because that's the momentum behind this song.

God, I love this band. Such a lyrically descriptive and mood setting track. The guitar part in the pre-chorus had me jamming out before going straight back to vibing to the chorus. Is there anything Neon Tetra can't do?

The evolution of this band is incredible. Each song SODA drops gets better and better as they master their craft and find the sweet spot and they are well and truly there. Muddy Waters is this big blend of modern pop from bands such as The 1975 shown in the catchy melodies, combined with alt-rock influences like Nothing But Thieves and Jeff Buckley in the huge & full instrumentals, moving bass lines and neatly placed guitar licks. All the parts work in this synergistic harmony to create a grand song like no other. And I love the ending, like your own take of Gang of Youths. Favourite release so far!

The synth parts plus the keys really compliment the melody and the many vocal layers that seamlessly flow through the song are perfect. Can't wait for more!

I've found a brand new metalcore band to play their discography on repeat, over and over again. Starting soft and graceful, Copacetic highlights Crooked Royals' softer side before getting right into business with heavy breakdowns, soaring vocals, djenty goodness, anthemic choruses, spacious yet full sounding bridges. For fans of Polaris, Periphery and Northlane, Crooked Royals won't disappoint and easily keep up with the punches of these heavyweights. Seriously impressed and obsessed.

Solid stuff per usual from DoD. Upbeat heavy and melodic banger. DoD, are you incapable of writing a catchy anthem-like choruses mixed in with solid instrumental sections? Sealed, packed, sent and delivered each time so well.
