POLARIS Drop video for brand new single 'Masochist'




It's been two years since Sydney metalcore outfit POLARIS released their ARIA-nominated, Top 10 debut, 'The Mortal Coil', which introduced the group to legions of fans around the country and — thanks to an extensive international touring schedule — the world!

The wait for new music is over. POLARIS have shared their new single and video for 'Masochist.' https://youtu.be/jmU2HH0LHmY





"We worked with Ed Reiss on this clip, who's worked on some of our favourite clips from other Australian bands, and together we developed this concept of a painter who, forever dissatisfied with his work, finds he gets more enjoyment from destroying his own creations than from making them," says drummer Daniel Furnari.

He adds, "We asked our friend Zac Britt (DREAM ON, DREAMER, YOUNG LIONS) to star in the clip. Not only is he a talented actor and someone that we knew would understand and embody the character, but. he is also a painter himself. Zac actually contributed the vast majority of the paintings seen in the clip and then did a bunch of painting live on set. We filmed this clip after finishing off final vocal dubs that same morning, and then flew straight out to Canada the following day for a tour, wrapping up a very intense period of work for us!"

For the new song, the band returned to the house in the small South Coast town of Mollymook where they made 'The Mortal Coil' converting it into a temporary studio. The familiar surroundings acted as something of a refuge after the high-pressure situation of touring.






In the two years since 'The Mortal Coil', POLARIS have embarked on three sold-out headlining tours of Australia, as well as supporting ARCHITECTS and PARKWAY DRIVE around the country; five runs throughout Europe (including a series of arena shows supporting ARCHITECTS and a slew of high-profile summer festival spots); three separate U.S. tours; not to mention performing at the Download Festival in Australia.

Earlier this year, POLARIS announced that they will be returning to Europe and the U.K this winter. They will be playing as special guests to NORTHLANE, alongside SILENT PLANET and VOID OF VISION.

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…

Band-Maid MCM Comic Con Live Review/Feature - Fringe Festival 29/5/16

J-Rockers Band-Maid make first European performance at huge MCM Comic Con

Band-Maid, one of Japan’s up-and-coming all-girl rock acts, made their live debut to UK/Europe at MCM London Comic Con, which took place from 27-29th May 2016 at ExCel London, hosting the UK's biggest Modern Pop Culture Event.


The Tokyo quintet who formed in 2013, consisting of Miku (guitar/vocals), Saiki (vocals), Kanami (guitar), Akane (drums) and bassist Misa – have been building quite a reputation and fan-base all over with their blend of cute yet deadly rock music and stand out imagery (appropriately dressing as maids) whilst they unleash and deliver their seriously skilled and striking sounds. The concept of the maid outfit aesthetic stems from founder Miku’s experiences in the maid cafes of Akihabara – the Tokyo district known for otaku (‘geek’) culture and passion for rock music.


Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…
