Vertebra I must say is a unique release that combined rock, metal and some hardcore element in one album. The perfect blend gives this album a live and fresh touch. Imagine the black metal riff combine with groovy rock blast and later comes some depressive emotion that color the variant in Australasia’s songs. Melodic, and to some extend fierce with blast, but nothing is out of control. They have Pelican, Mogwai, This Will Destroy You and Joy division in their influence list and I bet one day, Australasia will be on some other newer band’s influences list. Vertebra will be played in my stereo for years. Oh ya, my only complaint, if they can remove the voice, this album will get my double thumbs up.
