Diploid Mini-Tour

Posted by mothereel



Diploid, those Victorian people who play a form of Blackened Hardcore and feature a dual 'gender equal' vocal attack, are coming to Sydney and its surrounds.  They are even joined by Queenslanders, Dirty Charlie, on the Saturday.  That's two interstate bands plus some pretty good locals for the price of one!

Diploid, the band that has recorded a song featuring Extortion's Rohan doing vocals and that features members from recent to Sydney band Idle Minds, will pleasantly surprise your Sydney elite-ish sensibilities.

Diploid, go and see them.


Free Download: Vendors Rich//Shut In – Digital Split

Posted by Matt

Vendors RichDudes split their songs for a release, Melbourne math metal band Vendors Rich and Shut In (Diploid, World at a Glance and Idle Minds). For free download now on the good ol' trustworthy bandcamp. Two very different approached to music, Shut In offers more soundscapey songs, as well as layering some lo-fi brutal downtrodden noises and d-beat, contrasting with Vendors Rich energetic metal/thrash. Never let genres get in the way of a good friendship I say.
