***LINE UP TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON***
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.
Child Bite (USA).
Child Bite are a American noise rock/hardcore punk/heavy metal band formed in 2005 in Detroit, Michigan.
With Influences from such great bands such as Voivod, Black Flag, Jesus Lizard, Lubricated Goat, Napalm Death, Faith No More, Primus, Dead Kennedys.
Laceration Mantra (Qld)
Australian Brisbane based brutal black/death metal, old school death metal, metal, similar to Deicide, Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, Suffocation.
Blunt Shovel (Vic)
Blunt Shovel an Australian Death Metal band based in Melbourne. The aggression and intensity of bands like Bloodbath, Carcass and Revocation finds its place amongst the super heavy hooks and solid metal grooves that Blunt Shovel lay on thick. If you are a fan of anything Death metal, old or new, then you know where the bodies are buried.
Formed in 2011, Yanomamo have been belting out thunderous, low-tuned, groove-laden, sludge-ridden-doom all over Australia.
The last few years have seen them release 3 EPs and tour extensively with the likes of Kylesa (USA), Black Cobra (USA), Conan (UK), Jucifer (USA) and Monarch (FRA). 2018 will see the band tour to promote the release of their debut album ‘Neither Man Nor Beast’ on Iommium Records.
4 piece death/groove metal band from Newcastle/Taree N.S.W. Australia.
Influenced by Cannibal Corpse, Pantera, Slayer, Bolt Thrower, Bloodbath, Grave and Six Feet Under.
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 nicely progressive song writing. 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.
Anno Domini is a death metal band formed in 2005 from Sydney, Australia. Fusing elements of extreme metal with symphonic soundscapes, Anno Domini took the live scene by storm with their first full length release ‘Atrocities’ in 2009. Soaring on the winds of the albums success, Anno Domini spent the next few years touring the nation, sharing the stage with several international acts including Mayhem, Krisiun , Goatwhore and Sybreed.
Fast forward to 2016, Anno Domini have returned from the abyss with a refined sound and regenerated line up. ‘The Cold Expanse’ perfectly showcases the band’s ability to push the boundaries of their musicianship and songwriting. Unrelenting yet dynamic, ‘The Cold Expanse’ represents a new chapter of a constantly evolving entity.
From Crisis To Collapse.
Extreme metal outfit from Byron Bay Australia promulgating truth on the existence that most perceive as life.
Formed early 2005, WARDAEMONIC quickly wrote the eight songs for their debut opus “Through the Dank Pale Gravelands” (released 2006). Early live shows played the same year were promising, garnering an instant fan-base in a state deprived of truly bleak music. The band was quick to establish themselves as a local favourite, as well as spreading their disease to the Eastern states and as far as Europe.
In mid 2007, WARDAEMONIC contributed the song “Nattens Madrigal” to an internationally released ULVER double tribute album, allowing the band to expand its sphere of influence to new listening audiences. The tribute is available through COLD DIMENSIONS Records.
Since then, WARDAEMONIC have toured the country on their own steam, as well as seperate interstate shows and in support of international genre leaders, most notably BEHEMOTH, MAYHEM & DESTROYER 666. The band plays intermittent local shows, as to maintain their mystique and avoid boring audiences with repetition, a mistake made by many extreme bands.
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.”
Terrorential are a Death/Thrash Metal band from Sydney. Since 2010 have been a reliable source of relentless live music of the local Sydney metal scene. Terrorential have released 2 EPs One For One EP (2012) & Flood The Earth EP (2015). Since solidifying the line up in 2014, Larry, Triz, Travis & Elliot have been playing many headlining shows. Terrorential are shaking the walls like an oncoming storm.
