November 30 Fair Dinkum Records Words by Jimmy Glinster If it only happens once a year, it’s a good year.

Out Now Words by Jimmy Glinster Priorities, never heard of ‘em? Neither have I, so don’t feel bad about it, you’re not the only one. Luckily for them though, the lovely Misha at Overdrive sent me over their tunes for review and I figured if they have her approval, they may just be lucky enough […] …Continue Reading

Nuclear Blast Records Out Now Words by Jimmy Glinster When I took on this review, I actually thought I was reviewing an American band with a similar name, which I can’t remember right now.
