Intergracia - EP Review: Rise of The Incubus

31 Dec 2017 // A review by Kerry MB

Intergracia are a Kapiti/Wellington band, and as some may remember, formally known as Magnum Opus. They deliver powerful melodic metal that you’ll love from the start.

Rise of the Incubus is their newly released EP, and hits all the right chords. Their energy and passion are obvious and infectious with crisp, clear vocals and insanely catchy hook riffs and solos that throw a hell of a punch.

Whether you’re straight up Metal, a little bit of Rock, or only about that melody, you’ll get it all with these guys. No bulls***, just great music.

Tim Mekalick is lead vocalist and guitarist these days, with a profound sense of lyrical capability and a vocal style that catches your attention and keeps it throughout. The band are clearly great musicians and their technical ability is impressive.

Since their formation in 2008, the band have gone from strength to strength over the years in their local metal scene, and although they have had their share of line-up changes since, the band continue to establish themselves as an important part in New Zealand’s metal scene.

If you haven’t yet discovered Intergracia, get out from under that rock and discover, then go purchase a digital download of Rise of The Incubus. You won’t be disappointed.

Crowded House - Album Review: Gravity Stairs
10 Jun 2024 // by Kerry MB
In a moment we’ve all been waiting for, Crowded House, who need no introduction have released their new album, Gravity Stairs. It’s only been a little over two years since their last offering, Dreamers Are Waiting (2021) and it seems fans just can’t get enough.

Formed from the ashes of local bands, Hellborne and Wall of Silents to name a few, Government Pest have been on the scene since 2014 and have never failed to amaze fans with their solid metal offerings and swag of albums over the years. 2024 is no different and they’re back again with a new EP, Vol.

PARK RD - Album Review The Novel
23 May 2024 // by Kerry MB
It’s easy to see why Auckland five-piece, PARK RD is making some noise, figuratively and literally with their debut album, The Novel. Heavy on the indie, but far from light with solid guitar riffs and pop and funk sensibilities, PARK RD are a great example of solid musicianship.

Bad Schematics - Album Review: C O L L I D E
01 May 2024 // by Kerry MB
Manawatu might seem one of the unlikeliest places to find some damn good alt-rock pop punk, even more so when you add elements of metal, but stranger things have happened and I’m here to tell you it’s true, and their name is Bad Schematics. Not a name that may be familiar (yet), but they are a pretty determined bunch, having released their debut EP, Keep Your Gods in a flurry of a few short weeks, in 2023.

Gig Review: Stretch To Mould @ The Welsh Dragon, Wellington - 30/03/2024
31 Mar 2024 // by Kerry MB
The building once described as Wellington’s ‘fondest inconvenient convenience in the land’ by one commentator, The Welsh Dragon Bar (and Scorpio’s Restaurant) has been known as a few different things throughout it’s nearly 100-year history. From the original public convenience for Wellingtonians and its tramways employees and passengers when it was first built in 1928, to a theatre prop space, tea house and café, and for many years now, a unique but tiny Taj Mahal looking music venue, in the middle of the road on Cambridge Terrace.

The Transits self-titled debut album is a result of 3 talented musicians who sucker punch with passion, creativity and consistency, and that’s just the opening track.
