We face yet another weekend of disappointment in Australia, with Melbourne and Sydney currently in lockdown and several other states closely monitoring the situation. There’s too many gigs to itemise, but chances are if you planned on catching a live show in either state this weekend, check with the venue to make sure it’s still going ahead, but I don’t like your chances…
 
To help ease the pain, this week’s DigiMag brings you all the latest from the local scene, starting with our feature cover story on Brisbane’s A Somerset Parade who talk about their killer new single Alpha and lots more.

I want to start out by sending a big shout out to all of Victoria. The whole state is in its first day of a seven-day firm lockdown and although we can only imagine how tough it is, know the metal fraternity has your back!

Bison were among the kings of the ‘first-wave’ of nu-metal in Australia, circa 1998 – 2005.
 
Fast Forward to a post-COVID 2021, and throw in a pinch of Sam Bassal (Ocean Grove) in the producer’s role, and you have a classic heavy-groove sound with a modern heavy music flavour that cannot be denied.
 
Their return EP Perfect Mistakes will be released on Friday, May 28.

If you loved Nu-metal and lived in Melbourne during the late 1990s then chances are you were a fan of Australia’s very own kings of the genre – Bison. The band were the cream of the crop during their tenure from 1998 to 2005… and now the band are back with new music… and some unfinished business.
