Passion Through Unity

An EP review on Affinity Minus Perfection's latest release.

Passion Through Unity
Affinity Minus Perfection

Australian heavy-hitters Affinity Minus Perfection have come out with an EP that has turned many heads. Passion Through Unity is an EP that is both heavy with hints of pretty melodic guitar patterns and amazing clean and unclean vocals that blend together so nicely. This isn't exactly uncommon for Australian heavy acts as they pretty much have this genre in the bag, but what makes this EP stand out is the way they use these elements to produce a truly amazing piece of work.

Moments like "Voice In Volumes" truly stand out not only for its amazing production values. But also for how inclusive it is for rock fans heavy to and non-heavy alike. With its infectious riff and rhythm guitar patterns and its small uses of melodic arrangements perfectly crafted in between, its easy to see why this is one of the best tracks on Passion Through Unity. Not to mention its uses of varied vocal abilities establish a different energy that isn't on the EP in previous tracks. Other beauties such as "From Beginning, To Now" show a degree of musicianship prowess that wasn't advertised up until this last track on the EP. From its diverse use of guitar patterns on the intro and its great use of drums to create a heavy energy before it begins is something special. "From Beginning, To Now" is a track that keeps the listener interesting with its melodic guitar grooves, use of breakdowns, and colored use of vocal talents.

Affinity Minus Perfection is a band that will slowly gain traction for the North Queensland scene and all over because they are not afraid to test the waters with varied soundscapes instrumentally and vocally. If you haven't listened to this EP yet, for the heavy metal fans everywhere, do yourself a favor and go give this a spin.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

To The Classes That Follow
Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
