Interview: Shane Parsons delves into Bloody Lovely, DZ Deathrays’ monstrous return of an album

February 12, 2018

Brisbane rockers DZ Deathrays’ new album opens with a throat-shredding shriek  of singer and guitarist Shane Parsons. His voice becomes overwhelmed by an earth-shaking riff and drummer Simon Ridley’s explosive beats on “Shred For Summer” to the point I couldn’t quite hear the chorus’ final line. Was it “Bleed a riff from my blood” or […]

Tech Review: Logitech G613 Wireless Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

February 12, 2018

One of the rarer finds in PC gaming peripherals has always been the combination of mechanical keys and a wireless keyboard.
