Red Remedy / Press

"Cerebral prog goodness thats world class"

Chris Maric - The Music

“This Sydney band brings an interesting concoction of sounds to the table. Rooted in hard alternative rock, these guys take brief but impactful sojourns into punk, hardcore and screamo, and it creates quite a heady mix overall. In fact, all five tunes show a solid grasp of variety, never sounding too samey, whilst still retaining a strong signature sound.This is the band’s second EP, and it’s a very solid effort. Varied, powerful and with a strong sense of groove”

"Nailing a heady mix of swampy prog grooves against the spit cleansed sheen of pop" -

Jack Pilven - Australian Hysteria Magazine

“As far as self-funded debut releases go, I have to say that by the time I was finished with OBLIVION from Sydney, Australia band RED REMEDY I was quite impressed and can’t help but think that this band won’t stay unsigned for much longer as long as this disc falls into the right people’s hands...I’m almost certain that RED REMEDY are destined for bigger and better things, but while the band wait for the rest of the world to catch on I’m more than happy to herald these guys as one of the best Aussie modern alt. rock groups of this era and am willing to recommend them to anybody that will listen. 9/10”

“Red Remedy may be one of Sydney’s best kept secrets...The only question I’m asking is why these guys haven’t exploded in a major way. Their stuff is gutsy and anthemic. It rocks really hard, but the melodic undertones ensure the tunes stay accessible...They’re too good to stay a secret for long.”

"A larger group of punters gathered for fellow Sydneysiders Red Remedy, whose The Butterfly Effect-infused... hard-hitting yet melodic fare had clearly benefited from plenty of activity on the live front, brimming with confidence. The only major dissapointment for the appreciate crowd was the abrupt finish due to a tight running schedule"

Brendan Crabb - The Drum Media

“Red Remedy has the songs, the big guitar riffs and the sound all working for them. In other words, if the band manages to retain these key essential elements in their songwriting, success is without a doubt only a matter of when, rather than if.”

"The show was kicked off by Sydney rock band RED REMEDY. They tore into Tunnel Vision for their opener. It’s a straight up rock start to the evening. Vocalist/guitarist Zach Evans is a capable frontman and is commanding the attention of the already healthy sized crowd in the first few rows. They’ve already received some decent exposure on TV and radio as well as snatching some high profile supports. They’ve only been together for three years but there’s nothing immature about this band in terms of musical ability."

"I was certainly not going to miss a top night of solid rock though, a promise that was one-third delivered by Red Remedy from the moment they hit the stage. Brash and loud, these guys have just enough of a progressive twist to make them stand out along with some killer hooks and a dynamic stage presence, particularly frontman Zach Evans. They are already making big waves locally and from tonight's performance it's easy to see why. If it weren't for the stature of the other two bands on this bill, Red Remedy could have been headlining here and for many other acts they would have been a hard one to follow."

"this is certainly an EP that could generate a lot of interest for the currently unsigned band. There is an air of confidence and assertion that I am sure would translate into awesome live performances."

“Zach Evans’ strong vocal presence and great command of melodies is definitely a big selling point for the band’s message, but unlike a lot of acts, it doesn’t in any way water down the band’s penchant for creating huge sounds on the musical front.”

"Oblivion is one hell of an impressive first effort for young Sydney-based heavy rock outfit Red Remedy; one that only promises bigger things from the band in the years to come"

"...an awesome example of working your band hard the old school way, by doing the groundwork yourself."

Chirs Maric - The Drum Media

“Red Remedy has a kind of sound combination that reminds you of Smashing Pumpkins and The Butterfly Effect all smashed together and stuffed on to one eight track EP. With a mix of heavy guitar riffs and vocals, Oblivion is an album that does the hard rock genre justice.”
