UTSC X Australian & New Zealand Metalfest 2018. *** All Ages ***
A Metal Festival dedicated to all styles of metal, returns for its 10th year running. With 9 years of successful history, the annual event has grown into a mandatory date on the Australian metal calendar and the bar has been raised higher again for next year with 15 of the nation’s best bands confirmed to play! UTSC Metal Fest decided to expand the event and to include our mates from across the Tasman New Zealand three years ago, so this year we are now including Christchurch and also we are taking it to Melbourne. Taking place at its rightful home, The Bald Faced Stag in Leichhardt, the 2018 line up is going to hard to beat. And for the first time in its history will include a International band form USA plus a AA show on the Sunday. We would like to welcome our 2018 headliners the mighty King Parrot and from Detroit, Michigan, American noise rock/hardcore punk/heavy metal band Child Bite
**** LINE UP ****
KING PARROT. (VIC)
Like a pitch fork to the skull King Parrot are ready to tear through your eyes, ears and brain once again with their 3rd full length release Ugly Produce. A step-up in every sense, the reckless Aussies have topped themselves with another savagely brutal LP; a ten-track feast of distinctively punishing and powerful anthems veined deeply in the extreme underground sound.
LACERATION MANTRA (QLD)
Australian Brisbane based brutal black/death metal, old school death metal, metal, similar to Deicide, Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, Suffocation
DECIMATED KING (NZ)
“Decimated King is a 5 piece Death Metal band based in Christchurch, New Zealand. The band has been actively playing shows and writing music since 2007.”
Decimated King’s roots were formed in 2007 when guitarist/vocalist Angus Shaw and bassist Marcel Stet started writing music under the name Hangmans Noose. The two soon joined the City School of Rock where they recruited drummer Jonty Verkerk, continued working on material and started playing local shows. The following year guitarist Brad Lucas joined the lineup bringing the band to a solid 4 piece and expanding the group’s sound. Upon the close of the City School of Rock early 2011 following the Christchurch earthquakes Decimated King began practicing at Hagley Community College. Later that year guitarist Benjamin Ellis joined the band freeing up Angus to focus solely on vocals and creating the 5 piece model that has stuck with the band ever since. Briefly after Ben’s arrival the band started recording their first release and moved into their own practice shed.
Annihilist are a metal band from Melbourne, Australia. Their debut EP ‘Vol. 1’, released in Nov 2015, blurs the lines between European melodic death metal and the new wave of American heavy metal all tied together with a progressive style of songwriting. Live performances are a vital aspect to Annihilist, the overly charismatic singer Harry Pendock always turning heads at shows with his often theatrical behaviour, adding a much needed element of fun to what is all too often perceived as a serious genre.
Kaerulean formed in 2012 hailing from Brisbane Australia, taking influence from Melodic Death Metal, Black Metal, Progressive Metal and Orchestral Music.
Since inception they have self-produced their works and strived to avoid mimicking conventions.
Their intention is for the listener to drift into concept fuelled journeys and tales of the unknown.
Dead Life we are a band base at the foot hills of the blue mountains in Penrith jamming on heavy aggressive straight up in your face heavy metal music
