Live Review: A VULGAR DISPLAY OF PANTERA & KING PARROT Livestream

 

 

Despite all of the uncertainty and turmoil of the last 18 months, it is refreshing to see some things never change, as perfectly exemplified when King Parrot spewed forth from our television screen last weekend, performing in a rehearsal room no bigger than your grandmother’s drawers and possibly twice as hot and stinky!

 

Youngy is still an unmovable presence out the front, Slatts is still cracking jokes faster than Jim Jefferies can write them, Squiz is getting closer to pulling off the perfect guitar playing splits, Toddy is still in dire need of a hairbrush and Ari still endorses VB where demand still far exceeds supply.

KASTIELL With A Timely Reminder

 

Western Australian post-hardcore outfit Kastiell return with their latest single “Brave New World”, a timely song about taking back your own future and refusing to give in to mainstream media who tend to dictate terms and try to control your life choices.

 

It is a poignant song given the times, and one made all the more stronger by the involvement of Dan Marsala from Story Of The Year who not only provides guest vocals on the track but also handles mixing and mastering duties.
