Mike Glita (Knights In Paris / Senses Fail) Interview!

It's Here!
An interview with Mike Glita (Senses Fail) on his newly formed side project Knights In Paris.

For those who don't know Mike, he is the bassman for the New Jersey 5 piece, Senses Fail. He has recently started a electronica based side project called Knights In Paris and I asked him to do an interview for Coreatorium. He thankfully agreed to do the interview and here it is!!!

This interview is a big step for Coreatorium, so I hope you all enjoy it! And hopefully we will be bringing you more interviews with international artists.



What and who is Knights In Paris?

Knights In Paris is a side project that I decided to start. It's me (Mike) and my friend Nick who plays in a band called Vampire For Hire.

How did you come about Knights In Paris and where didthe name come from?

I was writing songs of my own for a while. Songs that I felt weren't something Senses Fail could pull off, and also wanted to try something different. So finally about almost 10 months ago I decided to turn them into something. I knew the direction wanted to head in, but kind of wanted someone else to do it with. Another "piece to the puzzle." I actually came up with the name searching through my massive cd collection. I wish it was something I totallybrain stormed up myself, but when I saw the name I knew it was just right.

The sampler track on your Myspace page shows adifferent direction from Senses Fail, what can SensesFail fans and others expect from this new sound, willSF fans like KIP?

I can't say ANYONE will like it. You can't expect everyone to love what you do. It definitely doesn't sound anything like Senses Fail. The only similarities would be that there are pop hooks, cause that's what i love. The sample can be a little decieving, but not too far off. It's a beat that was in the works. A simple loop. It kind of shows the kind of programming that will be encorporated in our music. There are rock, dance, electronica, indie, and pop elements in our music. I think it's pretty diverse.

When can we expect the first demos and recordings for KIP?

Well I keep saying soon, but I mean it. I think we should be able to post one within the next couple of weeks. Some are already recorded and hopefully willbe mastered soon.

Are there any plans for a Knight In Paris EP or album?

We would like to release an LP instead of an EP if possible. I'd rather have a bunch of songs for people to check out than a couple, but I guess time will only tell. If all we can do is an EP at first, that's what we'll do.

Has KIP done any live shows yet? Will they sweep theshores of Australia?

No live shows yet. We're kind of hoping to have an album/EP out before we do some shows. But if we can make it out on tour, we'd love to play anywhere and everywhere.

A lot of readers wanna hear about Senses Fail, when will you be back in Australia with Senses Fail?

That's a question I can't really answer at the moment. We're supposed to go back into the studio and record another album after this fall headlining tour.

Still Searching’s release has attracted a lot ofmainstream attention and success. What can we expectfrom the next record?

Another good question. Considering we haven't written anything yet, that waits to be seen.

It says on the KIP Myspace page that you play bass, drums, guitar and sing as well! You are quite the talented musician, how long have you been playing music and your instruments? And what gear do you use in both Knights In Paris and Senses Fail?

I've been playing instruments since the 3rd grade. Started with Trumpet. Then I moved on to guitar when I was 14. Then took up drums when I was 15. I always messed around with bass as well. I played in bands as a drummer for quite some time, and I also played guitar in one band as well before Senses Fail. In Knights In Paris I use an Orange AC-30 guitar head and 2 4x12 Orange Cabs. Also still use Ampeq bass amps (same as Senses Fail). I use an STV-Classic headthrough an 8x10 cab and a sans amp. Seymour Duncan quarter pound pick ups. I also use Fender Guitars. In KIP I use Jazzmasters, and for bass just standard P-Basses. And on drums I use a lovely Spaun Drum Kit. They make some sweet drums.

What are the bands plans for the future? Any newmembers or will it remain the two of you?

It's just gonna be us 2. We will bring other musicians on tour if we play shows. For now our plans are just to start releasing some music.

How do you psyche yourself up before you go on stage to play in front of hundreds of Senses Fail fans?

Honestly, I just stretch and kinda put my head in a different place. I can't really explain where I go mentally haha. It's like being a sports player.

If you were locked in an empty room with no food, with Buddy, Garrett, Dan, Heath and Nick who would you eat first?


What’s in your iPod/CD Player/assorted musicallistening device at the moment?

Recently the new Jimmy Eat World album Chase This Light. Also Tegan and Sara's new record.

Do you have any tips for bands new to the musicindustry?

Do as much as you can yourself. In this day and age people have a lot more opportunities to do everything on your own.

How do you manage to find any time for KIP with the extensive touring with Senses Fail?

I just use whatever spare time I have. Whenever a thought comes to my mind I try to record it or jot it down on paper. Nick also will send me any ideas he comes up with while i'm out on the road.

Any last words?

Thanks for everyone who has checked us out so far. We're working hard to get some tunes out to you guys really soon!

Thanks again dude.


In Fiction Interview!

Coreatorium recently caught up with up with one of Australia's most promising rock acts 'In Fiction'.

First of all who am I talking to and what part do you play in the band?
You are speaking with Josh, i play guitar for In Fiction.. well i try to.

You guys are on one of the hottest labels in Australian at the moment (Boomtown) tell us what the atmosphere is like there?
Boomtown has been really good to us. Its awesome to have some great people behind us. and the other bands on the label have been really awesome too, we've made some great friends.

The Boomtown Showdown tour is about to go ahead, are you guys pumped for this or what.
Hell Yeh! I been amped for this tour since last years! we were co-opening last years tour and this year being main support is a step up and being on the road with rad friends is a true blessing.

Recently you guys released a Japanese album with two unreleased tracks here in Australia. Any chance that these songs will ever be released here?
Im not sure to be honest, i guess Australians might have to fly to japan to get the 2 unreleased songs. haha

Im a big fan of the song 'Calander notes' any chance on this being rereleased on the album.
haha sounds like you know something? Its definitely on the cards.

Whats your favourite song to play live?
oh, it changes all the time.. When The Cameras Off, is definitely a favourite because their are lots of vocal parts in it, but as far as raging goes, i would probably say Silhouette.

Who's the next big thing in Australian music?
Depends what you mean by next big 'thing'.. i think there are some really awesome up and coming bands in Australia and in recent times, its been awesome to see melodic rock come back and arguably take over 'hardcore', i couldn't tell you what the next big thing is but maybe it'll include neck beads, trucker caps and badges. haha

Really appreciate this, for doing this for the site, have a great time on the tour, ill be sure to check it out.
Thanks very much. see you at Boomtown Showdown in November (dont forget that Moustache!!)

Welcome October

hello all!
It has been a while since my last post... due to the fact that I haven't been able to figure out how to sign in! [laughs]
Well the latest happenings involve several Newcastle shows and upcoming touring news. But local gigs just aren't that exciting so i'll get down to the good stuff! And I know I promised interviews but it has been hard because I've been sick lately and i just finished my yearly exams. I promise when I get back from New Zealand there will be an interview conducted as well as my review for Taste of Chaos and Punk n Grind.

Get ready for 2008's Soudnwave festival! One of Australia's newest festivals, only debuting this year in February/March. Of course I attended it and it is the best show i have ever been to, it was worth the $95 I paid in the final round of tickets. Thrice, Deftones, Parkway Drive, Forgive Durden, MxPx, Unwritten Law, Hit The Lights, The Bronx, Terror and Suicidal Tendancies were just some of the bands that played at Sydney Park's sold out Soundwave festival.
But let's not rant on about this year's festival, it's all about 2008.
The current leaked line-up according to Soundwave forum moderators and administrators are:

Shadows Fall
Kevin Devine
Scary Kids Scaring Kids
Still Remains
Bleeding Through
The Matches
Boys Like Girls

This is only a handful of the lineup. The final announcements will be made on the 19th of October. All information about the lineup, tickets and venues will be released.
The major announcement is still on the down low, and fans of the first Soundwave are in anticipation. There are strong rumorus that As I Lay Dying, Killswitch Engage and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus are playing, each announcing they are touring to Australia on a festival during February of 2008!
This festival is a MUST SEE, so stand by for tickets, and I hope to see you all there.
If you are after any details head to the soundwave forum it has all the information. I'm too lazy to give you a link so just search it in google!

And in other news...

We all know now that in just a few weeks the Rockstar Taste of Chaos tour will be sweeping the shores of Australia, with the likes of The Used, Rise Against, The Bled, Aiden, Gallows and new comers to the tour replacing Escape The Fate (see Escape The Fate topic from September) Drop Dead Gorgeous.
I will be giving a full review of the night as i will be attending the Sydney show at the Entertainment center. So keep an eye out.

ALSO. Rage Against The Machine have announced their Australian tour, doing head lining shows and head lining the 2008 Big Day Out tour this summer. If you are a little behind, the band has been reunited (following the break up of Audioslave) and are now embarking an international tour. They will share the stage alongside Bjork, local boys Grinspoon and the one and only Mr Billy Bragg. There are rumours stirring that The Smashing Pumpkins will grace the BDO stages as well.

Also when I get the chance I'll be reviewing one of these albums..

An Ocean Between Us - As I Lay Dying
Chase This Light - Jimmy Eat World
Downtown Battle Mountain - Dance Gavin Dance
Which brings me to my next news! Jimmy Eat World (most famous for their songs Bleed American and The Middle off their full length 'Bleed American') have recorded their 6th studio album entitled 'Chase The Light' and is set for release on the 16th of October. The first single 'Big Casino' has already been released for radio play. The whole album was leaked on to the internet on the 29th of September. And well yours trully went and downloaded it. shh! I downloaded it today, and its such a great album there's not a song on there that I don't like. This album is a must have.
In local news...
Sydney band Guns For Glory are set to release their new EP 'Love, Lust and Loneliness' on the 7th of October (this Sunday afternoon) at the Gaelic.
Darkest White are in the process of recording their debut EP.
Melbourne boys The Getaway Plan have recorded their new album in the US titled 'Streetlight' and have set the release date for November 3rd, they are back in Australia and are on tour with other Boomtown Records bands, unfortuately for Newcastle fans they will not be coming here. Teh first single off the album is 'Other Voices, Other Rooms' which can be purchased at killyourstereo.com.
'Horizons' is the new release from Parkway Drive. Produced by Killswitch Engage axeman Adam Dutkiewicz, it shows a maturing of the band's sound and new death metal elements used in songs like 'Siren's Song' & 'Boneyards' and classic Parkway sounding tracks like 'Carrion'. This is a great album and the songs that really stood out for me were Carrion, Breaking Point and Five Months.
I have been puzzled by I Killed The Promm Queen's current myspace screen name, it says.. "I KILLED THE PROM QUEEN (08 tourdates coming soon)" could this mean they are reuniting??? I will keep you updated on that one, there is no info on a possible tour except the screen name.
Heartbreak Club are in America! The band has an EP ('lamecore') and even their own music video for their single song 'Bethanie' and have obviously gained an international audience, gaining radio play in Australia, USA and Canada. Their record label Reign Records has sponsored their tour of the US.They began touring this month onthe tour entitled the 'Dead Celebrity Tour' while in the US they will be hitting the stage in the following cities:
Los Angeles, CA
Chico, CA
Portland, OR
Vanvouver, WA
Seattle, WA
San Francisco, CA
Sacramento, CA
Denver, CO
Lawrence, KS
Detroit, MI
Chicago, IL
Pittsburg, PA
Philledelphia, PA
New York, NY
As a fan and friend of the HB boys, I am not one to judge, but how the heck did they get such an oppurtunity! If you aren't a fan of their music you can at least say they are doing quite well for a local power pop/emo/punk quartet.
What's next?? Heartbreak Club on MTV2?! Maybe that's saying too much, but who knows. 2 years from now 13 year old teeny boppers will be outside in the cold at 12AM waiting for the midnight release of Heartbreak Club the full length studio album!!! We can only wait and see. [laughs]
That concludes my updates for now, I plan to make more regular updates now that I know how to logon. [laughs]
The future sees album reviews, band interviews and show reviews, as well as new happenings in the music world.
Until next time kids!

Paramore Show Review- Sydney 3rd October

For the past month I have been counting down the days to this show, to be honest not to see Paramore.

Mayday Parade have been my favourite band for quite some time, ever since they released there EP there songs have just hooked and there recently released LP does not dissapoint.

I make my way there at around 6:30 totry and find a good position, 20 minutes later and where still not allowed in. Its pretty obvious how big Paramore are now with the help of MTV.

As I make my way im greeted with so many shit cunts that make you not want to not go to shows. You have the twleve year old Veronica mad girls, or the dykes who arent dykes.

But I cant complain or should I, I realise that after tonight these fucks are going to go around saying they know both Hot Rod Circuit and Mayday Parade just cause they seen them.

Around 15 Minutes later we are greeted with screaming fans who probably have know idea who these guys were.

Mayday Parade were opening tonight, and ripped up the stage with one killer opener, Jaimie all over which is also the first song of there cd.

The sad thing was they only played for half an hour, which made me quite sad as I only really came to see this band.

One thing about this band is that the departure of there old bassist has hurt them, he had one of the most recognisable voices in rock.

There drummer was singing back up who obviouslywas struggling by missing some notes.

The band played around 5 songs and closed with 'When i get home your so dead' which is undoubtably there most famous song.

Are these guys the next big thing? Only time will tell but these guys were fucking tight.

Hot Rod Circuit were up next, having never really heard of these guys I never knew what to expect. But they did not dissapoint, but it was clear what the crowd wanted to see and that was Paramore.

Hot Rod Circuit played for around 40 mins, producing its that spans over ten years of there existance. Straight up rock and roll which most the fans knew nothing about. Pretty sad but this was another highlight of the night.

Paramore were finally up and this is what everyone was waiting for, delivering hits from both Riot! and All We Know Is Falling.

I thought to myself what if Paramore had not released Riot! yet, will they still have as many people there, well of course not.

Well you had the dykes pushing through the sweat pit, I wanted to roll one of them.

About Paramore though, I cant tell you that this band is bad at what they do because they arent, they do it well. Altough they should just change there name to Hayley Williams, cause no one gives a flying fuck about the actual band members even if the bassist did a backflip.

Definantly one to remeber though cant remember exactly what set they played, ill try find it later.

Short-Stack Interview!

First of all who am I talking to and what part do you play in Short Stack?

im shaun donald patrick diviney, i sing and play geetah

You guys are one of Newcastles biggest up and comers what do you think the secret is in the success?

haha we are? well i spose it is stick to your guns, play what you like playing and put a lot of effort towards it and hopefully it will pay off :)

But with fame also comes a lot of jealousy, how do you guys react to the forms of hatred you recieve from the local bands and fans?

haha well i think everyone loves me so... nah jk, i spose you laugh it off, some people arent going to like what you do but that doesnt mean its not worthwhile

What is your biggest influence on the music you write non musically?

girls mainly haha. the current album we have coming out i basically wrote about my last year in high school and my relationship with people in situations, but especially about girls i'm in love with who dont even know i exist haha

How about musically?

musically theres a variety, at the moment i'm obsessed with kanyes new album but there will always be the greenday and ramones influence that was there since day one.

According to Myspace you guys are in the top 10 pages of the top artists in Australia, why do you think you have recieved so much attention.

i'm not sure, but we are definatly flattered by it. the small amount of success we have had we really appreciate it and sometimes don't think we deserve it, especially when kids go out of thier way to make shirts and give you gifts. it just makes your week haha

What can we expect to see from Short Stack in the future?

an album, very shortly. we have recorded the first 6 and i have written all the songs for the next 6 which we'll record in november. now we are going to come together and arange whats going down.

Favourite show to ever play?

the best so far has been hellogoodbye - off the fucking wall. its like if we were a christian band playing with jesus, that's how much that show meant to me- for our first "big" show to be sharing the stage with one of your favourite bands is simply amazing.

We really appreciate this interview, thankyou for yor time.

thank you :)x shaun

Listen to Emery's "I'm Only a Man"

Waterview EP Review!

Waterview have been on the scene for a fair few years now, but this EP is there first official release. Being released last year, Waterview have created a perfect blend between the Screamo, Emo and Aussie Hardcore bands.

The EP kicks off with what is undoubtably there most popular song "Daybreak". Although only clocking in at just 2 minutes and 30 seconds this song has plenty on offer. Starting with old school hardcore chants and gang vocals, Aussie hardcore fans of bands such as Against! and Rex Banner.

The EP boasts 5 songs with each song offering standout quality from one of Newcastles most promising acts. Lo Siento offers the starting screams with a unique blend of more of the softer side, as well as an extremly catchy chorus that is the standout track for me off this amazing debut EP. Bring on there LP as I cant wait to hear it.

Standout Tracks:


Lo Siento

Drop Dead Gorgeous.

Recently we reported about Escape The Fates departure from this years upcoming Taste Of Chaos tour. The band that will fill in there position will be none other than one of Rise Records biggest acts Drop Dead Gorgeous. DDR have had a recent stellar year off the back of there recently released new album 'Far From A Fairy Tale'. They recenlty played all the dates on this years Warped Tour in the states. Tickets are still on sale for the Sydney date which will take place at the end of October.

Escape The Fate

Escape The Fate's upcoming tour on the ROCKSTAR Taste Of Chaos Tour to Australia has been cancelled. According to Frontier Touring the band had to pull out due to immigration and legal issues.
This message was left to all there fans;

"To all of our international fans,We regret to inform you that we will not be able to participate in Taste Of Chaos International. We have some legal issues that we have to clear up. This is a huge bummer for us and we really wanted to come to your countries and rock your faces off every night. Once we clear up all of our immigration and legal issues, we will jump right on an airplane and give you a show that you will never forget. Make sure you go out and support Rockstar Taste Of Chaos and all of the bands that are playing. Those shows are going to kill! We love each and everyone of you and we will see you soon.

-Escape The Fate"

This is sad news for me because i spent 75 bux just to see them! Now it's all wasted on The Used, but i do tip my hat to the other bands playing (Aiden, The Bled, Rise Against and Carparthian.)

If you wanna go to this year's TOC then tickets are still on sale! head to ticketmaster.com for more details.


Armor For Sleep!

Just announced that Armor For Sleeps newest release has been delayed.
a statement from Ben who is the bands singer and guitarist states that it has been delayed by just 21 days.
This band is also being rumoured to play at Soundwave next year, so fingers crossed.

Sullivan- Cover Your Eyes review!

You may have heard of Sullivan before and there is probably only one reason for this, the drummer in Sullivan is actually Spencer Chamberlainn from Underoaths brother.
Both Chamberlainns were in the same band years before, This Runs Through which you may also have heard of, even though Sullivan sound nothing like them.
Sullivan second LP has recently been released and has been getting very little attention through the underground music scene. This is straight up Rock, forget your typical songs about the girl who got away, this si the opposite.

If you did like Sullivans debut lp then you will absoloubbtly adore there latest effort brought to you by Tooth And Nail. Im just thinking wether or not Sullivan would be as popular as they are if the drummer wasnt related to Spencer, which is a real shame as this band means quality rock songs. The album is for the mainstream, not for fans of underoath or any melodic Screamo/Emo.
Sunny Day Real Estate and Death Cab For Cutie are the only real similarities I can see with this band, they have tried to distinguish there sound as much as possible and let me tell you that it has worked.

Stand out tracks include:

1. Fire Away

2. F- Stop

3. Goodbye, Miss Havisham


One of the most underrated bands in the worlds, have recently announced there breakup.
Spitlafield formed in 1999 and released four records on Vicory Records.
There most recent effort Better Than Knowing Where Your Are was released just last year with much critical attention.
This band will be sorely missed and you may remeber them on there Boys Of Summer stint earlier this year.
Head over to there myspace to read a statement from the band regarding there breakup.

The Core are hiring.

We need more staff so we can constantly run updates on the scene.At the moment we have four people contributing but we definatly need more.Obviously there will be now financial reward for your efforts for this requirement. All in the love of the business.But if you want to go to free shows and love scoring the rare free cd, then this is your chance.All your expected to do it at least three news posts a week, as well as two cd reviews a month and an optional show review.Quite easy if you ask me.Reply to this message if interested.

Boys Night Out CD Review!

What do you do when you've created an album about a man who loses his sanity after murdering his wife in his sleep? You go on too write an album about alcoholism, disheartenment and self affliction! And that's exactly what Boys Night Out have done on there third full release on New Jersey based Ferret Records.

"Get Your Head Straight" kicks off the album with an infectious chorus th
at immediately establishes Boys Night Out as a catchy well produced rock album thanks to the help of legendary producer Lou Giordano known for such bands as Goo Goo Dolls, Live and The Ataris just to name a few; in which creating a strong opening song that will instantly get you hooked on the album. Ben Arseneau's drumming picks up in the second track with the use of neat fills and rolls to kick of "Swift And Unforgiving" which unfortunately suffers lyrically as a whole. "The Push and Pull" dispatches the familiar punk pop predictable riffs and harmonisation, until the chorus is broken down to modern rock. "Up With Me" the single of the album, tries to push the moody concept displayed in the use Connor's vocal abilities and the first taste of a more heavier hardcore sound leading into "The Heirs Of Error" which is probably the heaviest track of the album which will be instantly recognised as a crowd favorite for the catchy group vocals.

The group vocal trend picks up to fill other tracks "Let Me Be Your Swear Word" and "Hey, Thanks" the latter including synth and hand claps to create a sense of speed. "Fall For The Drinker" is easily my favourite track on the album as it's a glass raising, pub chanting effort that yells "
We’re all here now, tonight to hell with everything else, we’ll drink hard and we’ll drink to ourselves". "Apartment" and "Reason Ain't Our Long Suit" start to slow down the album falling into an abyss of familiarity because of the other tracks outshining these otherwise good tracks and with the slow " It Won't Be Long" finishing off the album with the best showing of Connors vocals yet.

What Boys Night Out have created on the third self-titled album is a collection of infectious pop rock hooks and rock driven guitars riffs that tries to be nothing short of other "pop" rock bands in an already crowded genre. Not to say that this album is all pop and no rock, which it isn't. It's just that it doesn't branch out from the norm like there previous concept "Trainwreck" which a lot of fans will probably be disappointed about but they have still created a brilliant album which every lover of pop/punk/rock (or drinking songs) will enjoy.

1. Fall For The Drinker
2. Get Your Head Straight
3. It Won't Be Long

upcoming interviews

As far as me interviewing people I'm going to try. My future interviews will be from the likes of:

Falling For Beloved
The Vaine
Armor For Sleep [fingers crossed and let's hope my friend let's me.]

And a shit load of others, theyre shit the main ones that people would know about.
Keep checking in for updates and new interviews!
Any suggestions as well???

Lock & Load

25/08/2007 [a little late but it's here!]
Lock & Load
Black Box, Newcastle.

Tonight’s show was surprising for me, never have I in my short time on this Earth been in the presence of so many dykes and scene kids, unless you are a fan of gay bars and cross-dressers then a night like this really wouldn’t be for you. But this abundance of women loving women did not deter me from enjoying the night, and don’t make me out to be some homophobe or anything, it was funny seeing lesbian lovers fighting [laughs].

Arriving at Black Box during the set of Falling for Beloved, made me thankful that I missed the rest of the garb that plays before the first decent band starts playing, those bands being ‘Redevine’ and ‘The Red Letter Project’. I take that comment back about them being, seeing these guys both before they pulled pretty good shows, so I regret missing them play.

Venturing my way into to the fairly packed venue, even though more then half of the audience was outside, the stench of ‘crotch’ was thick and the mosh-pit was motionless, the only people who got their ‘groove on’ were the rejects in the back and the groupies the bands have to bring along so it actually looks like people like their music.

Falling for Beloved managed to bring on a really tight and great performance, even though their lead singer Jimmy, or as we came to know him at the end of the night ‘Jimmy Touché Titcum’, was very partied out from the vodka and Pulse he mixed together an hour or so before his set. Afterwards I managed to hang out with Jimmy, and scored a future interview, if I had brought a pad or a tape recorder then you could be enjoying the slur and comical genius that is Falling for Beloved’s Jimmy Touché Titcum, but sadly you will have to wait. At the disappointment of not having something to write down an interview I continued the night with out the troubles of writing this review, and managed to have quite a laid back night hanging with people that I rarely see and people I’ve never seen. Falling for Beloved was definitely the highlight of the night for me, if you haven’t seen them live yet, then I suggest you get on to their Myspace now and find when and where they’re playing next!

Along with the rest of the crowd there, I spent most of my night outside enjoying everything that Newcastle’s music scene has to offer. And to my alarm the purpose of visiting Lock & Load became void. I was informed that the headliners ‘As Silence Breaks’ cancelled yet another Newcastle show, this time the drummer broke his finger or something. Although disappointed that I missed them [again], I still tried to enjoy what was left of the night, and collected some feedback from some of the kids that attended the show. One guy said, “There’s only one word to describe this gig, ‘crap!’ “

But comments aside, it was still a great show.
I enjoyed the sounds of ‘The Bright Star Alliance’ from outside, not entirely impressed with their sound, but still an appreciation for their effort.

Finally I went back inside to see what all the fuss was over these guys ‘The Vaine’ or rather these girls [and one guy]. These girls [and guy] put on one heck of a show, unbelievable guitar skills from the only male in the band, a lot of great stage presence, and not to mention a shirtless drummer and who said girls shouldn’t be bands? Watching them tear up that stage makes me wonder why more girls aren’t out there starting metalcore bands and taking their shirts off [we can only dream]. They pulled off the longest set and the most fuel pumped one as well, with their groupies at the front wearing their ‘The Vaine Crew’ tees and chanting all the words to the songs. These girls (and guy) pulled off an amazing show; they will definitely go far in the music business. The frontman’s [or should I say frontwoman’s] vocal range was incredible; she pulled off those screams better then a lot of male screamers on this scene.

9:20ish and we come to the final act and a close for Lock & Load, with Newcastle boys ‘Kids of November’. They drew in a small following of devoted fans, and pulled off an entertaining close to an entertaining night, although they didn’t seem to be playing their most adrenaline pumped show, not many jumps or big guitar swings from the boys, but they still left a good impression. And finally the show was over and it was time to depart Newcastle and head off back to Maitland.

The night overall was fun and boring all at the same time. But I was glad to see such a big turn out compared to many other Newcastle shows, these hardcore/metalcore shows always seem to bring out the kids, it’s a strange scene and it is certainly growing, newer faces are being drawn to these shows with even weirder hair styles then the kids before them. From emo fringe to emo fringe, they just keep getting longer and more outrageous; sometimes you can’t tell if people are boys or girls because of all that hair in their face. It actually took me all show to figure out that The Vaine’s back-up vocalist was actually a girl. There are all sorts of shoes ranging from Chuck Taylor Converse All-Stars to Sparkly gum boots. The scene is prospering so if you can make it in to town or you’re already there, I suggest you hit up the nearest show and get involved with our local scene, it’s not much compared but it’s something, it’s funny how many new people you meet at them as well.

Hope you enjoyed the review.


Rumours are rising that Waterview have signed with Skull and Bones Records.

Interview with Evading the Enemy!


Core: Who am i talking to and what part do you play in Evading the Enemy?

Chris Keeping "Keepo" I am the lead Vox (Throat/Scream)

Core: As an independent band, what is the hardest part of promoting yourselves?

The hardest part would have to be the time that's required to fit it into my lifestyle. Its a catch 22 really because in one way you need money to pay for the equipment that you need however, you can't afford to waste all your time working if you want to pump out shitloads of new songs and gig every second day. That also leads to other hard part of the band, only having 3 members over 18.

Core: Do you find with the invention of things like Myspace and Purevolume it makes things easier?

Hell yes!

Core: What would you say are things that keep you going as a band? What makes you strive to be different then other bands?

The main thing that keeps us going as a band is the music, we all love what we're playing there's never arguments over what genre we should be playing and each song we make we love to play over and over.

You know when you see lots of Parkway Drive rip offs around it makes you want to bring something new and exciting to this style, admittedly our EP recordings were probably heavily influenced by Parkway and that Aussie style of Hardcore Metal. But to me that was an eye opener to the band but our new stuff is gonna give a new meaning to brutality. Since we got our new drummer, we have picked up in every single way!

Core: What was the hardest part about creating your EP?

MONEY! [laughs] Well actually first of all it was finding someone to record us. Because we didn't want to spend too much on our first EP, so we found a friend of a friend "Pat" with a home studio but hit a hard time getting the mixing completed. So we had to change to another friend of a friend called "Troy" both of them coming through for us and the recordings ended up coming together quite nicely.

Core: What has the response been to it so far?

Fairly good, we hoped for better. But it's just hard right now to outsource it because for the time being until we can find a decent record company that will have us we're trying to do it by ourselves, which is pretty hard. But judging by Myspace though I'm happy with the responses

Core: As you would be [laughs]. What can we expect to see from ETE in the near future?

Well our short term plans are to gig a shitload, get our name out to those who don't know who we are and keep the songs coming because we are already in the process of our fourth new song with our new drummer. And also plans to record them in our own time over the next few months but nothing too serious for the time being.

Core: Would you say the experience of adjusting to new members is hard?

Not really, don't get us wrong we loved our old drummer! He was a champion but he just didn't fit right, then he started to go down the wrong tracks and then ended moving away to the South Coast. That pretty much gave us no option BUT to look for another drummer. Luckily "Mini" [bassist] knew a guy he had met through his girlfriend, It turned out we had a gig coming up and needed someone to fill so we used that as his audition. He just fits with us really well, except the fact he can't drive and lives all the way up the fuckin' mountain [laughs]

Core: Favorite experience so far in ETE?

Would have to be releasing our own EP, I love the fact that it was us that made it [laughs]
And possibly the massive drunk gig we did at the Mandarin Club, barely anyone there, we all got drunk including the crowd and fuckin' ripped that place to shreds.

Core: Worst experience in ETE?

When we started i was actually the singer and Steve and Mini were the screamers. We were making good music except for my singing [laughs]. I had heaps of fun and well I thought I sounded good, till I finally heard myself.

Core: Well that about raps it up, anything you would like to add/plug?

Yeah anyone interested in having a chat to me or the boys just give us a yell on our Myspace (www.myspace.com/evadingtheenemy) we've got loads of useless shit to talk about and definitely if we're coming your way don't hesitate to come see us I love to see new faces in the crowd.

Thanks for having me cheers.

Stealing Oneal Interview!

Here it is guys!

Who am I talking to and what part do you play in Stealing Oneal?

> I’m Jack, and I play the part of the best friend of the lead girl character but I pretend I’m not really desperately in love with her and help her out with relationship advice. I also play guitar and sing back-ups when I’m not busy making mix-tapes to silently confess my love for her.

>What was your main insparation behind the Spin For Me EP?

> Basically, we really wanted to get a product out there on the market. We knew that having it out, would be a step up for our profile and our peace of minds. When it was released we had been a band for over 2 years, and it was such a relief to finally have a group of songs that would fit in sequence, and worthy of being on an EP.

>Whats it like being on Taperjean records label?

> I feel really lucky to be a part of TaperJean! I know it’s a label that’s really going to progress in time and have some real impact on independent music and it’s kind of a privilege to be involved with it in the early days.

>Ive never been to a Stealing Oneal show, what can I expect from you guys when you play live?

> You shouldn’t expect anything! We’ll always do something different to mix things around a little. Maybe you should expect the unexpected! Haha! Or dancing! There’s always plenty of dancing.

>What is the best thing about being in a band?

> The best thing probably for us is to hear when people really respond to a song, or they tell us that they really enjoy our music. It kinda makes us feel like we’re doing something that people are connecting with, and that’s a great feeling!

>What about the worst thing?

> The worst thing? Um, probably when our schedule calls for 10 hour van rides, all cooped up with stinky tour managers and no personal space; then getting out to play a show, and then travelling back all 10 hours to get back in time for another show! It’s like a 24 hour round trip of hell!

>What can we expect to see from Stealing Oneal in the future?

> A hell of a lot more touring, we want to get out as much as possible, make plenty of friends on the road and get a whole lot more exposure! Plus it’s really fun. Then we’ll do another EP, and more touring and then finally an album!

>Favourite song to play live?

> Probably Bedroom Eyes, only because we added this true rock style ending to it, which is mint fun to play! I guess you’ll have to see us to see it!

>Favourite local band to play with?

> We’ve made some great friends on the road, so we kind of have our best friend bands in each state. We love playing with I Am Spartacus down here, 919 and Kiss Montana in Radelaide and we’re just about to do a heap of dates with Another Day Down from QLD which should be wicked fun!

>Well guys there all the questions I have, and last words you wish to add?

>Come say hi to us on myspace.com/stealingoneal and then come dance with us at a show in your town!!

>Thankyou guys very much

>Peace and Love xx

Midnight Juggernauts at the Cambridge SOLD OUT

The Midnight Juggernauts have released their new album Dystopia and will be playing their wicked electro-prog beats to a SOLD OUT Cambridge Hotel at Newcastle tonight!!!

The album DYSTOPIA is an experience that comes to your living room right from the dance floor of hell! They have fused echoes of prog rock, electro beats to electrocute and dramatic flourishes to high success and has been described as "the catalyst to a nationwide movement".

This show is being organised by Ruffneck Promotions, which is responsible for Groovin the Moo. In fact thats the last time the Midnight Juggernauts were down this way. If you were lucky enough to squeeze into the dance tent that night and you scored a ticket, congrats!!!

Amathyst record with Nick Launay!

Although this is old news, people of Coreatorium might not know this.

Amathyst are an all girl goth-rock band from Newcastle. If your going to jump to conclusions about this band, you may aswell jump into oncoming traffic. Their live set is electrifying and they recorded a while back with producer Nick Launay.

To put it quite bluntly, the man is a freaking genius and has worked with John Lydon (Public Image Ltd), Talking Heads, Kate Bush, Silverchair, Lou Reed, Midnight Oil, Nick Cave (Grinderman, Bad Seeds, Birthday Party) and the list goes on.

The track EMILY is a rambunctious mix of the gap between hard rock and metal filled with an arsekicking low end and Renee and Kristy's contrasting yet effective vocal deliveries. You can check out the track for yourself on their Triple J Unearthed page, where I implore you all to download it for your iPods! Downloads on Triple J's Unearthed page will help Amathyst to climb the charts and you can do so by clicking here.

Hopefully this dynamic combination continues and rears its potential soon enough in the future.

Angelas Dish Interview!

Hey guys whats going on, Who am I talking to and what part do you play in Angelas Dish?
You're talking to mike and i sing and play guitar in AD

How long have you guys been together and what has been biggest highlight?
We've been together since 2004, probably biggest highlight was playing at the Horden, sold out! or recording our album, thats something we're proud of.

Who would be your biggest influence in both National and International music?
Aus bands like The living End, crowded house, paul kelly and OS bands like Jimmy Eat world, Oasis and The Goo Goo dolls

Your on Boomtown records which seems to be getting bigger and bigger each day, how do you get along with the other bands on the roster, considering most play music nothing like yours?
We get along well with most of the guys in other bands but to be honest we dont see a lot of them anymore, everyones always on tour and even when they're home and we're home we're miles from any of them. It feels good to be on the label but, its a family.

The Central Coast scene has been giving us huge acts recently such as yourselfs, Something With Numbers and In The Grey what do you think the key to success is?
I think you've really just got to be yourself with your songs, and do it cuz you love it not for any other reason. Then if you're lucky enough you might get a brake.

Who is your favourite local band to play with and why?
After The Fall, we just get along with them like we've been friends for years. In Fact their Bassist is now my neighbour so its pretty cool.. he understands when we're really loud with our guitars and i understand that he's really loud when he parties.

Whats your favourite song to play live?I dont really have a favourite. i like seeing people react to our songs so i guess the more popular songs are a bit of fun to play. but different people like different songs so its always interesting.

Recently you announced to fans that three tracks of War On Time will be Re-mixed by Mark Needham who is responsible for the new My Chemical Romance album and some songs off The Killers first album, why did you guys get such a high profile engineer.

Why? well to be honest we know some people that know some people that actually made it really affordable... and he's a great engineer. We love 'Mr Brightside', its one of our favourite songs and to get the guy responisble for that mix onto our songs was a dream come true.

Whats the most annoying thing about the scene today?Artist dont like to be pigeon holed, but consumers need music to fit into a category.
As a band you cant fight the 'scene' you're in and a lot of bands try. It becomes confusing and at the end of the day you dont need to have a 'emo scene' liscence or any other 'scene' badge to walk into JbHi-Fi and buy an AngelasDish CD... anyone can.

What has been your favourite show ever?
Opening for Jimmy Eat world at the Metro in Sydney, that was literally playing along side our hero's.

What can we expect to see from Angelas Dish in the future?
You can expect to see hit album after hit album... or you'll see us working at the local chicken shop for the next five years? who knows really...

Well guys I guess thats it for the Interview, Anything you wish to add?
Just like to plug our new single 'Soft November' which will be in stores Oct 27. please go buy it.. xThankyou.

Shades of Autumn

The lads from Maitland have scored a support gig with Angela's Dish at the Maitland Clubhouse on Friday 24th of August. This weekend!!!!

It is for their regional tour, which is extending all over Newcastle and the Hunter Valley. They have started to a huge rise since their win at the MYMC Band Comp just a couple of months ago.

Short Stack are also playing. Tickets are $10, I think you can get them from the Clubhouse at 41 Elgin St Maitland, NSW 2320. Probably from the bands aswell, check out the Shades of Autumn myspace.

Shutter Interview!

Coreatorium:What part do you play in Shutter, and what sort of music do you guys play?

Aiden, Shutter:I sing and play bass, and we're kind of alternative rock/indie.

Coreatorium:How long have you guys been together and in that time what have been you best highlights?

Aiden, Shutter:We came together at the end of 2005 for a friends 18th just to play as a covers band. Then we started jamming on some originals, and before we knew it we had a set of 5-6 songs. My best highlight would have to be our 2nd placing at Mt. View High's Battle of the Bands Competition in April 2007. But pretty much any gig where the kids are getting into it and we play well is a highlight.

Coreatorium:Ok cool, Your obvioulsy in a scene where there isnt many similar artists like yours, How do you feel about this?

Aiden, Shutter:To be honest, it's cool to see heaps of different bands playing together. Like, we've played in a scene where Metal/Hardcore bands have the biggest crowd support, but it's also good to get our music out to all those kids who like those bands. But I guess it would be nice to be able to play a show with some more bands of our genre. A quote I heard from a good mate who plays in a PopPunk band was that we need to "bring singing back". And even though i respect all the Metal/Hardcore bands out there, not everyone likes them. So we're just offering something different. And we like what we play and listen to, so I guess that's all that matters.

Coreatorium:Yeah, thats the main problem with the Newcastle scene, is the lack of originality, Something that you guys try to avoid I guess?

Aiden, Shutter:Yeah true. But we don't go out of our way to be original. We try to mix different sounds and styles from all the bands we listen to, but at the same time put our own mark on them. You can't force originality, it just comes from the little things, like the way you play, stage presence and your attitude towards the music. And some of the 'scene' bands that are playing at the moment are like "f**k yeah, we'll throw a breakdown in here, and a blast beat there" and we'll crack the bigtime like Parkway did. Some bands think they can make it just by sounding the same as others, but hey i guess pubs need cover bands.

Coreatorium:Lol True, Yeah im really getting sick of tired of seeing Parkway and Prom Queen shirts all the time at show, I think Prom Queens break up was a blessing to the scene in someways, Anyway when can we expect to see some new Material such as an EP?

Aiden, Shutter:Ahh, well we recorded 4 new demo's a few months back for that NockRock compilation CD which was funded by CYEC (Cessnock Youth Entertainment Committee) so we'll have those on our myspace very shortly. But in terms of an EP, we're kind of unsure as a band where we want to go next. We've got 5-6 new songs that sound completely different to our older material, so when we do bring those songs out. I think people will have something sounding a bit more dancier then our previous offerings.

Coreatorium: Cant wait to hear it, What would you say your favourite song to play live is?

Aiden, Shutter:Probably some of the new stuff. It's always fun to play the older songs though, like 'Take Me' and 'View From the Sun', cause I've noticed some people start singing along and getting into them.

Coreatorium:Yeah there great songs, Who would be your favourite local band to play with and why?

Aiden, Shutter:We've built some good friendships with a few local bands such as, Black Entity (awesome stage presence), Shades of Autumn (catchiest pop-choruses, good mates), and in the earlier days, Harmartia (drinking buddies and wicked stage presence, but no longer together) & Shuns The Light (ex-In-Transit -awesome live band, all amazing musicians). But its always fun seeing any good live band play.

Coreatorium:True True, Well thats about all the questions I got to ask, any upcoming gigs you would like to plug before you go?

Aiden, Shutter:Just the ones on our myspace. www.myspace.com/shutteraus Thanks mate.

Coreatorium:Cheers man

After Bloodshed Interview: Ben Guitar, Soft Vocals.


Coreatorium: Yo! Ben, Whats going on? Give your band name, what you do in the band and what style of music you play?

Ben, After Bloodshed: kk, After Bloodshed, i play guitar and do soft vocals, and we're like Screamo/Metalcore (amity affliction)

Coreatorium: Ok, So obviously your heavily influenced by fellow aussie metalcore, Hardcore, Who would you call your biggest influence in both the international and local scene?

Ben, After Bloodshed: Well international, our top 3 i think would have to be The Amity Affliction, The Devil Wears Prada & Still Remains, and locally would probably be As Silence Breaks or our mates Black Entity (who i also play for)

Coreatorium: Cool, how did you go about in gettin yourself in black entity?

Ben, After Bloodshed: well, im pretty good mates with all the bandmembers, and after the leaving of darby, i was asked to help out, and eventually the welomed me and a permanent guitarist
Coreatorium: Mad, When can we expect to hear some new tunes from After Bloodshed?

Ben, After Bloodshed: hopefully soon, we're still writing some music that fits the new genre, and still piecing it together and getting some stuff down with the new members, but we're doing it all fairly fast, so we should be in the studio to record wioth old habits soon

Coreatorium:I also notice some new members, who are they, and how do they add there own distinct features to the band?

Ben, After Bloodshed: well, we have anew guitarist vocalist, and keyboardist, Guitarist is scott maclean, who is really good at writing riffs and has a good sense of music, Brant - vocals who hasnt been in a band before but has a pretty impressive vocal range for someone who still time for their vocals to develop, and Beau maclean, scotts little bro on keyboard, who brings a more melodic theme to thew music, as well as

Ben, After Bloodshed: a dramatic sense

Coreatorium: Sounds good, Hey man whats in your cd player at the moment?

Ben, After Bloodshed:ummmm, Devil Wears Prada's new album Plagues

Coreatorium: Download? lol

Ben, After Bloodshed:haha

Ben, After Bloodshed:shhh

Coreatorium: So you guys got any up and coming gigs?

Ben, After Bloodshed:actually no , but i suppose thats good because we're probably not quiteready with the new members

Ben, After Bloodshed:but afterwards we're going to get intouch with secret empire

Coreatorium:True True

Coreatorium: Well I guess that all the questions I got at the moment, thanks heaps for the interview, and tell all your friends about the site, and until next time, cya around. Cheers

Waterview- Show review for the 11th august.

This show received a fair bit of controversy, with first being moved from The Loft, over to The Black Box theatre.
I have never been to The Black Box before, and they may be the reason it took me an hour and a half to get there.
I had no idea where it was and had to ask some of the locals to get directions.
When I did turn up I was greeted with the usual scene kids once again trying to outdo each other, with the same hairstyles that was there 6 months ago.
You see, I have not been to a show since probably 3 months, since I quit my band, I havent found the time.
When I arrived, it was just in time for Kids Of November, I thought to myself that I had seen this band before.
Ahh, yess, High Voltage 23rd December we played with them, I thought they were good at what they did, not exactly original but you do get that.
Then I heard the first line of vocals and started to think to myslef that this must be a different band, this wasnt Kids Of November, but sure enough it was.
They are just another band who have jumped on the Hardcore band wagon, much to the same as the Valley.
I still listened to there whole set and must say they are good at what they do, but I got some advice for them, guys dont change for what cool, you were an even better band before and you had a lot more potential.
Next up were Red Distress all the way from Sydney, I must say that this band is good, and I urge everyone of you to check them out.
The vocalists can sing and they can all play there instruments.
A big suprise to see such a good band playing such a little show, but oh well.
Waterview were the headliners for tonights show and it comes as no suprise, with constant airplay on Triple J and a spot on the Come Together the four young lads from Newcastle could very well be Newcasltes next big thing.
I am pretty sure they opened the set with a new song, which sounded fantastic, then they went straight into Daybreak.
These came here to do one thing and that play music, something you dont really see these days.
Best local band I have probably seen ever and there Ep is in my cd player constantly.
They also ended with a new song which has a lot of potential.
These guys should expect a lot of label interest, especially if they continue the form they are in.
Apologies to the first to bands, Falling For Beloved and Ellington for not making it, but I plan on another time.
Also plan on catching Waterview in Maitland very soon.
Stay tuned!

Dont know what the quality is like, but the folks over at Tin radio certainly know how to do there stuff.


Anyone else think that these guys should get whats coming to them?
Probably the dullest band in the newcastle scene.
Anyway over at there myspace they are currently holding a competition for a banner.
i dont know what you win and dont really care, but I know a lot of people, and its always about minority.
