smlMoodswing_3_of_5Sydney has done it again, producing one of the most exciting new hardcore bands around that has caught a lot of people's attention. A side project of sorts for members of Legions, Distance and Phantoms 

smlBoneless1Sydney has always been home to more traditional hardcore sounding bands than elsewhere in the country. The latest addition to that long list happens to be BONELESS. 

smlIMG_3799The Sunshine Coast region, an hour or so north of Brisbane, has spawned a handful of great hardcore bands recently after a long drought. First Failure has emerged as one of the more notable bands from this new crop of Sunny Coast hardcore kids. 

smlBlackwire Feb 2 13 22 of 22Adelaide’s Crisis Alert have but only a short history, less than 12 months in fact. Yet in that time, they’ve managed to release a 10 song 7 inch on Resist Records and helped put the city of churches back on the hardcore map.
