Sid Diamond Sid Diamond
For Sid Diamond (formally Young Sid) these last few years have been a blur. The respected South Auckland MC hasn't stopped working since the 2007 release of his acclaimed debut, The Truth. Now, after scaling new heights as part of chart-topping crew Smashproof, Sid came back with his second solo album, What Doesn't Kill Me – a release which will solidified his status as the voice of his generation.

Sid's whirlwind journey began in 2006, when he travelled to New York City to record The Truth – an honest, hard-hitting album that earned him a reputation as one of New Zealand's best MC's. The Truth was a hit with fans and critics alike, winning Maori Urban Album of the Year at the Maori Music Awards and being nominated as Hip Hop Album of the Year at the New Zealand Music Awards in 2008 and 2010.

What Doesn't Kill Me sees Sid raise the high standards he set with The Truth, while continuing to call it like he sees it. "The subjects on What Doesn't Kill Me are heavy," says Sid. "Police profiling, media scrutiny, death, youth, the ups and downs, living life. I feel that on this album I had to deliver reality through the eyes of people I've either met or know, and to tell their story."

Mad Cow - Single Review: Alone
15 May 2021 // by Kev Rowland
Mad Cow are a Taranaki band who formed way back in the 1990’s and have been going one way or another ever since, releasing their debut EP in 2000 and following it up just 10 years later with the next one. Then in 2013 guitarist Joe Smither returned to Aotearoa after living for a while in Melbourne and made contact again with original singer Jon Churchill (who also provides bass) which resulted in the third EP, Disturbing The Peace.

Single Review: Hedonist Claemus - Single Review: Hedonist
13 May 2021 // by Kev Rowland
Hutt Valley quartet Claemus are back with their latest single, Hedonist, which puts them firmly in the prog metal scene, but possibly not quite in the area one might imagine just from that alone. Most people tend to think of prog metal as being typified by the likes of Dream Theater or Threshold, but as with many of the sub genres, itself covers a multitude of different styles and Claemus are musically all over the place - truly progressing and blending as opposed to attempting to sound like anyone else.
