  Spotlight: blaCK SabbatH
                       Despite getting very little radio play over the years
                       because their songs are about apocalypse, death
                       and destruction, Black Sabbath have managed
                       to sell more than 15 million records in the
                       United States alone. The band, who formed in
                       1969, are deemed one of the pioneers of heavy
                       metal — and many of today’s biggest metal
  bands, including Metallica, Slipknot, Pantera and Megadeth, cite Black
  Sabbath as one of their influences. We’ve got five of Black Sabbath’s
  best albums (from the period when Ozzy Osbourne was their frontman)
  on board this month.

                          MAISEY rIKA
                         There’s something oh-so-summery about
                         the debut album from Kiwi artist Maisey
                         Rika, Tohu. Her smooth vocals, similar
to those of international artist Sade, seem designed to melt into
balmy summer nights. This diverse album has funky, rhythmic
and upbeat songs such as the charming “Ladeda Day”, as well
as haunting, melodic beauties like “Reconnect”. Rika’s lyrics, a
mixture of Maori and English, are emotionally raw, speaking of
love, heartbreak and issues within Maoridom. With Tohu, Rika
cements her reputation as a hot new star on the rise. Her song
“Repeat Offender” was a finalist in the APRA Maioha Award, which
celebrates Maori songwriting.
