Diamond Noir have established a modern and genuinely original sound, riddled with both pop and metal elements as well as boasting classic vocals hooks, grinding guitar riffs, sub slamming bass and polished with a distinctly industrial sonic edge. Monsters is indeed a beastly release. Confident and at times intimidating, six tracks spill forth in such a sultry, salient manner, it’s hard to believe this is a debut release.
The Empty Hearts, a new band featuring members of The Cars, Blondie, The Romantics and The Chesterfield Kings, are on the verge of releasing their eponymous debut album. The band, consisting of four iconic players and musical peers, features Elliot Easton on lead guitar, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Clem Burke on drums, Wally Palmar on vocals and guitar, and Andy Babiuk on bass.

Son Of A Gun
Son Of A Gun is a film that seems like it is desperate to make the same grade as classic Australian crime films like The Boys, but sadly the films weak last quarter really drags it down and leaves a bad taste in the audience’s mouth. Worse is the fact that the opening of the film is so good that you are left wondering how the same screenwriter could be responsible for such a letdown of a finale.More...
Annabelle does everything that good old fashioned horror fans look for in a film. It sets up a rather evil nasty in a creative way, brings something new cinematically to the table and has just enough plot twists and turns without ever going over the top.More...
