Hysteria Hardened The F--k Up Edition #32

 

I know, I'm so slack at updating this damn thing. But mate, putting together a mag, running a copywriting business and maintaining THIS level of excellence is tough yakker. BUT - you can smack your eye-gob around Issue #32 of Hysteria, featuring DEEZ NUTS (lol) on the front. I uncovered the GREAT BONOX SWINDLE from King Parrot, got to know unsmashed pumpkins Helloween and bonded over Maco stuff with Billy Gould of Faith No More. Weird, hey.

It's FREE - 1000000% FREE, holmes. Get it.

Review: Caulfield - Vanity (Beat)

 

Sydneysiders Caulfield enter their debut, Vanity, to a packed out and ever filling hardcore scene.  It squeezes in snugly, too. Searing, pounding guitars anchor Amity Affliction-checking vocals penned in A Letter to Myself One Year Ago. Machine beats pulse through Sour Grapes, raging against the dwindling dubstep light. Their middle runs on a hamster wheel of alternating clean/scream vocals and obligatory breakdowns. They hop off, cobbling ‘90s pop-punk off cuts into Something from Nothing. A danceable G.Y.S.T holds the line as only their last handful of cuts do any advancing.

Are they victorious? Read more at beat.com.au.

Interview: Hand of Mercy (Beat)

Hand of Mercy can't be brought down. The young'un moshers are locked away in a Cape Cod, Massachusetts studio recording their second album. They're counting down the minutes like waiting for the home time bell. When it finally rings? It's Aussie Vans Warped Tour time.
