Once again Australian metal website Metal Obsession is pulling together some of their favourite bands to celebrate another year of existence.

Featuring members of Psycroptic, Blood Duster and Fuck I’m Dead comes KING headlining the night. After a big year releasing their debut album “Reclaim the Darkness” through Indie Recordings, and having warmed up their live show alongside Enslaved and Inquisition, it’s time for their first hometown headline show.

Prepare to hail the Obelisk as extreme metallers Hybrid Nightmares return after putting on a highly entertaining, as they always do, performance at last year’s Birthday show.

After over two decades in the local metal scene performing in Damaged, The Eternal, Earth, Cryptal Darkness and more, the latest project from Terry Vainoras sits in melodic death/doom territory under the name Subterranean Disposition. On the back of album #2, “Contagiuum and the Landscapes of Failure” will be a rare live performance, showcasing their incredibly dynamic brand of doom, complete with a touch of saxophone.

The rest of the varied lineup includes melodic death metallers Catacombs, Dark Earth who finally have their debut album on the way after 20 years, the absolute brutality of Iconic Vivisect, some powerful post-metal courtesy of Order of the Oblique, technical riffs and big grooves courtesy of Annihilist, death metallers Cryptic Abyss and the stunning atmospheric metal of Aquilus.

It’s all happening at the Tote across 2 stages on December 9, with doors at 7pm.
