Review: Gay Paris - Ladies And Gentlemen, May We Present To You: The Dark Arts (Beat)

Remember this proverb? "Metalheads don't dance, it's why they head bang." Not true, not any more. With a deep focus on arse-shaking grooves, Gay Paris play burlesque metal.

Review: Biffy Clyro - Opposites [Australian Tour Edition] (Beat)

There’s an ancient proverb, passed down from rock sages eternal: only Cheap Trick may thrill Budokan. The Biff soon gave said sages pause for thought. Opposites, released last year, heralded the Scottish alt-rockers evolutionary endgame. They were once an unsettled trio, metal-tinged and hopped up on Rush and rhyme. But The New Biff?
