IPHYB Music Discussion Presents: Behind The Lyrics

IPHYB Music Discussion Presents: Behind The Lyrics

So as some of you may know, we have a fully sick music discussion group, in which we basically just talk smack and shitpost all day. Feel free to join, and you too could be a part of such thrilling threads as this; Behind the Lyrics. The premise was simple: tell the true lyrical content of a song, based on its title. In this article, I have compiled the best entries for your reading pleasure. Enjoy! Pearl Jam – Even Flow A song about a woman achieving perfectly symmetrical menstrual blotting on her pads. Mr Bungle – My Ass Is On Fire A song about burning down one’s barn. Being As An Ocean – Nothing, Save The Power They’re Given A song about solar power, and the replacement of fossil fuels. Thy Art Is Murder – Holy War A jihadist preaches for infidels to join Islam The Beatles – Come Together This song is about the Navy hazing practice known as “soggy biscuit”, in which everyone stands around a biscuit jerking off, and the last person to blow their load onto the biscuit has to eat it. This song advocates an egalitarian approach, whereby everyone helps their neighbour to achieve orgasm simultaneously, thus resulting in a tied game. Also, an unconsumed biscuit. INXS – Tight This is a song about a particularly obdurate nut, which the protagonist is having extreme difficulty loosening. He’s tried several different shifters and wrenches, but just can’t seem to get that nut undone. Suicide Silence – Unanswered The tale of a dude waiting for his dealer to text him back Slipknot – The Negative...
AS PARADISE FALLS Tease New Guitarist/Vocalist, World Asks ‘Literally Who?!’

AS PARADISE FALLS Tease New Guitarist/Vocalist, World Asks ‘Literally Who?!’

Brisbane deathcore outfit As Paradise Falls are today giving the world peer into the record. Late 2015 saw them travel to Thailand to lay down what would become their follow-up record to their EP “Save Yourself”. What followed was heartbreaking to the say the least – their friend and brother in music, Glen Barrie, passed away unexpectedly, and without warning in his sleep. All of Glen’s work on the record remains as he played it. ‘Digital Ritual’ is the first track to be released from this new record. It is unusual for the band – it’s a definite shakeup in style and also in that is a very short instrumental track. In another shift for the Brisbane 5-piece, they have also recently had a change of vocalist and guitarist. This new track comes with a film clip created by Third Eye Visuals and it gives punters a sneak, albeit covert look into who their new vocalist and guitarist are… can you tell who it...
IPHYB Recommends: A Bunch Of Bands That Aren’t Shit

IPHYB Recommends: A Bunch Of Bands That Aren’t Shit

G’day, dickheads. I’m sure you’re all aware that we here at IPHYB have objectively flawless musical taste, so we thought that we’d have a dig around and give you a list of a bunch of bands that are fucking siiiick. Not quite as fucking siiiick as, perhaps, a fully siiiiick wolf tattoo or something, but still pretty zazz regardless. Now, most of these are Australian, and that’s just something you’ll have to deal with, because Australians are objectively the best musicians, best-looking people, and have the largest penisia in the world. Fact. Deal with it, everyone else. DriveTime Commute If you like math, Melbourne, gimp masks, rabbit onesies, impish frontmen that royally fuck shit up live, quality tunes, or any combination of the above, you’ll love DriveTime Commute. For fans of Norma Jean, The Chariot, Converge, and going absolutely batshit crazy live…so yeah, those aforementioned bands, really. Listen HERE ZILF Sure, they aren’t Aussie, but they are poms, so whatever. Either way, holy fucking hell this is some dank shit. Experimental, and addictive. An eclectic blend of seemingly diametrically opposed ideas, that somehow come together to produce an enthralling listen from start to finish. Fantastic. For fans of Mr. Bungle, but with some decidedly more chaotic elements, and even some heavy as fuck shit thrown in for good measure. Think SikTh, but less djenty. Listen HERE Dead Teach The Living These crazy sons of bitches are from New Zealand, land of the chilly bin, jandals, judder bar, and various other hilariously daftly named things. So by this point you can more or less ignore my intro paragraph about most...
THE COMFORT Drop Sizzling Banger ‘Everstone’, Can Finally Evolve

THE COMFORT Drop Sizzling Banger ‘Everstone’, Can Finally Evolve

Brisbane duo The Comfort have released the first single from their upcoming EP, Love, which is due for release on the 16th of September. It is available for pre-order HERE, with which you will receive a digital download of ‘Everstone’ as a bonus. This track shows a slight departure from their previous works, mostly ditching the screams for a much-improved focus on killer hooks. According to guitarist/vocalist Liam Holmes: “Everstone is a song about growth and change, and intertwined with past relationships, its also a good starting point for the the rest of our next release, Love, where we did everything we wanted to do and weren’t worried about it not fitting in with our past material or assumptions of our band, its a new era for us and we couldn’t be more excited to show everyone the real Comfort. “There is nobody who is so enlightened that they don’t need to work on themselves.” – Terence McKenna” Everstone will be available on Spotify Friday 1 July, and The Comfort are embarking on a tour in support of Everstone in July visiting Canberra 22/7, Melbourne 23/7, Sydney 24/7 and ending in Brisbane on...
Song Review: The Weather Underground – ‘Deathsinger’

Song Review: The Weather Underground – ‘Deathsinger’

Band: The Weather Underground Song: Deathsinger Genre: Metalcore Date of Release: 1st June, 2016 Reviewer: Chris Giacca For Fans Of: Pudding, Down-tuned Pudding, Rice Pudding Let’s talk about pudding. Everyone loves it – it’s tasty, sweet, and no-one has ever died from eating it (to my knowledge). But does that necessarily make it the king of all foods? Possibly, but probably not. Pudding, for all its merits, is still kind of boring, especially on its own. Now, if you add some sauce, you might have a meal worthy of some serious praise, maybe even a world beater. Pudding with sauce could very well be the greatest and best food on God’s green Earth. What’s my point? Surely you guys know me better than to assume I always have a point by now, right? I just really want to talk about pudding, to be perfectly honest. Now, your average pudding isn’t particularly memorable, I’m sure we’d all agree. It has that whole ‘I’m not really a cake, but sort of am’ deal going on, and that’s fine. It’s all fine. Pudding is a fine dessert, really. Rice pudding is kind of the same, but totally different. It’s sweet, and sort of gelatinous or whatever, but at the end of the day, it’s just rice with a bunch of sugar and condensed milk or whatever, right? So you see, pudding is pretty much just a standard dessert, no matter what the base component of it is. Without the sauce, it’s kind of just there, y’know? Whatever. So, right now, I’m gonna assume that you’re listening along to this track while you’re...
