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. 


For quite an active music scene, Melbourne's hardcore bands have been on the decline of late. Newcomers REINCARNATION, are hoping to inspire a few more bands to form. Read on as Alex and Nathan explain.


Str8 Outta Adelaide comes THE WEIGHT, definitely one of the most promising hardcore bands to emerge from South Australia in a very long time. With their debut LP "Prisoners Of The Flock" about to drop we caught up witht he guys for a chat.


The Gold Coast scene has been pretty quiet of late, a little too quiet perhaps. Rising from the ashes of Spray and Third Strike comes a new hardcore conglomerate, SURVIVAL that has put the Goldy back on the map in a big way.


Sadly fast melodic hardcore is a style that not a lot of new bands seem to be playing a lot of lately. Fortunately Canberra based SNAKEPIT are setting about righting this wrong. We catch up with Joseph from the band for a chat.


The Melbourne hardcore scene has long produced quality hardcore bands and attracted many to relocate to be a part. Such a band is OUTRIGHT.


Perth has a somewhat short, but very rich history when it comes to producing good hardcore bands. The latest in this bloodline is youthcrew hardcore band REFRAIN. We caught up with guitarist Jim Harte for a chat.
