Editors’ Notes The rest of the world might not realize it, but Australia isn’t just beaches and sunshine and sandy-haired surfers. Some Aussies prefer spending their weekends donning black band tees and getting sweaty in circle pits. From metalcore and hardcore to death metal and more, here’s a set of heavy music we love from Australia and beyond. Our editors regularly update this playlist, so if you hear something headbang-worthy, add it to your library.
