Omaggedon Nice progressive high energy set of songs. They have a unique jazzy style, even using a saxophone in sections. I also find the desperate sounding punk vocals to be a fine compliment to the musical style they play. Favorite track: Likeminded, 3011.

RAT UGLY If I had to describe this band, I would have to say it reminds me of Dance Gavin Dance and I Set My Friends On Fire. Is that a good thing?


  Favorite track: Something to Fill.

Coming to fruition in the inner-city suburbs of Melbourne in late 2011, Stockades deliver emotionally-soaked sounds of great contrasts. Though their roots exist alongside words like hardcore and screamo, it would be a crime to classify the five piece as simply another one of those bands. Post-rock, jazz, and math-rock influences more than permeate their unique mixture, with an extreme metal-edged level of technicality giving fluidity to the band’s own joyous yet tortured sound. Having previously released a demo in 2012, and a split with Brisbane’s Nuclear Summer in January of 2013, the band’s debut EP release is available in both 10” and digital formats through MONOLITH this June.
