WA Gigs / Dimebag Tribute Night - 12/12/2014
« Last post by Reidie on October 29, 2014, 06:32:24 AM »
10 years ago heavy metal music lost arguably one of its greatest ever contributors when ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Lance Abbott was tragically shot dead on stage during a performance in Columbus, Ohio. A decade later, and Dime’s legacy lives on in the form of the music he made and his undeniable mastery of the 6 stringed instrument. His influence on heavy music will continue to be felt for generations.
On December 12 2014 we will gather together to pay tribute to the great man by playing his music in his name. Murderfest Australia Presents, The Dimebag Darrell 10 year Tribute Show;

Frankenbok hail from Victoria but are no strangers to Western Australia, having toured here many times including as recently as July when they headlined the annual Murderfest event in both Perth and Bunbury. Veterans of the Australian metal scene & renowned for having a good time and leaving a path of destruction in their wake, there could be no more fitting band to pay tribute to Dimebag than the ‘Bok!

Co-headlining this great event is Earth Rot, Perth’s very own “Black 'n' Death 'n' Grind 'n' Roll” juggernaut. In a relatively short period of time Earth Rot have established themselves as perhaps Perth’s most formidable metal act. High praise, however anyone familiar with the material on their debut EP ‘Dirt’ and follow up Album “Follow the Black Smoke” would be hard pressed to argue. Earth Rot will bring their brand of HM-2 drenched heaviness to the tribute night and will no doubt be primed to destroy, having recently performed at the Rock in Solo festival in Indonesia in October alongside the mighty Carcass.
Cold Fate are Favourites of the Perth scene with good reason, playing a old school thrash metal influenced by greats such as Metallica/Megadeth/Slayer/Kreator/Overkill, these guys have been prolific for a number of years and their longevity is testament to the quality of their material, their live show, and commitment to the cause – Thrash!

Tempest Rising are fast becoming one of Perth’s most prolific heavy bands. Playing a style of metal which is as melodic as it is heavy, these guys are sure to impress. Tempest Rising are releasing their debut Album ‘Transmutation’ in the coming months and are destined for bigger and better things.

Opening the show will be Let’s Kill Uncle. The 5 piece have had a prolific 2014, making a name for themselves in the Perth scene by playing a number of shows and releasing their self titled debut EP in the process. Let’s Kill Uncle’s style is well suited to paying tribute to Dimebag, and are sure to get the crowd going early.

So mark December 12 in your diaries – On this night we to pay homage to one of the true greats in heavy metal music. Five stellar bands play slamming versions of Dime’s music to honour his legacy in amongst sets of their original material. Be there.

WA Gigs / Chaos Divine 'Soldiers' Single Launch - November 21 - Amlpifier Bar

Perth's CHAOS DIVINE are without peer in Australian heavy music.

Leading audiences and listeners through a journey of uncompromising arrangements, crushing heavy riffs and soaring melodies, the band has well and truly immersed themselves in a realm of sound and style matched by few and admired by many.

With a suite of industry accolades, national and international tours and a recent appearance at the 2014 Soundwave Festival under their belt, the fierce five-piece has spent the best part of the past two years carefully crafting their eagerly awaited follow-up to 2011’s The Human Connection - the group's critically acclaimed second studio album branded by many as a benchmark in modern progressive metal.

In 2014 the band returns with Soldiers, the crushing first single from their forthcoming third studio album. Mixed and mastered by renowned east-coast producer Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, The Butterfly Effect), the new single delivers a bold, aggressive and mature step-change to an already proven formula that’s sure to ignite a spark among audiences both new and old, near and far.

Soldiers will be released through Firestarter Music on October 31.

WA Gigs / Marduk & Inquisition Australian Tour
« Last post by Jess on September 29, 2014, 07:18:17 PM »
MARDUK and INQUISITION tour Australia January 2015

Monday January 12th @ Amplifier Bar, Perth

Early bird tickets are available for $39+bf till September 30th!

The bright days of the Australian summer will momentarily darken in mid January when two of black metals most notorious and infamous acts descend on the nation for a twin attack of biblical proportions.

Marduk and Inquisition will hit every capital city and raze them to the ground leaving trails of destruction and mayhem in their path.

Since coming into being in 1990, Sweden’s Marduk have unleashed 12 albums of scathing extremity and the utmost brutality. Regarded as one of the pioneers of black metal, their barbaric, unhinged and unrelenting live assault must be witnessed, if not survived. And with album number 13 about to be released, Australia will once again be in the firing line to receive an unadulterated blast of caustic black metal.

Inquisition formed in Colombia, South America but now reside in Seattle where they taunt the locals. The fact that the consist of just two members does nothing to detract from their ferocity and the intensity of their craft. Their sixth and latest album, Obsure Verses For The Multiverse is a psychedelic journey of satanic intentions, cosmic rituals and dark energies that completely mesmerizes when performed live.

Having just celebrated the birth of Christ at Xmas, Easter will come early in 2015 when these two most extreme acts bring their fires to bear against Christ and all that is holy in what will be undoubtedly one of the most brutal death marches across our great southern land ever.
