Back from the dead, extreme metal titans NORSE will be triumphantly returning to the stage with a ferocious new line up to unleash their 7" vinyl "PLAGUEWHORE" on the unsuspecting masses of Sydney. With this release, fans will finally be able to hear the blackened misery and violent aggression of the band's unmistakeable sound the way it was always intended to be heard. NORSE will be pummelling ear drums with material from their critically acclaimed sophomore album "All is Mist and Fog", the band's most honest, raw and gripping expression yet. Described as a "mind blowing" (louciferspeaks.com) exploration of "misanthropy and escapism" (absolutehell.net), "All is Mist and Fog" is a twisted blend of dark dissonance, blistering percussion and haunting atmospheres. Having previously shared a stage with such names as Dark Funeral, ABSU, Portal and more, NORSE's live performance is a legendary spectacle that has to be seen to be believed.

Hailing from Brisbane, Qld, ETERNAL REST are an axe-wielding psychopath in metal form. Fresh off their 2013 tour of Japan and signing to US label Deepsend Records, the band will be bringing the technical insanity from their debut album "Prophetic" to the major cities in Australia. Produced by Psycroptic's Joe Haley, "Prophetic" is a blistering vision of "pure" and "vicious" death metal (metal-temple.com), with infusions of Arabian flavours reminiscent of Nile yet with a thoroughly unique expression. With a string of high-profile shows under their belt, including with the likes of Behemoth, The Black Dahlia Murder, Kataklysm and Ulcerate, ETERNAL REST are ready to assault the live scene of Sydney with their attention-grabbing performances.

Featuring former members of Spawn of Possession and Psycroptic, MEPHISTOPHELES are a technical blackened death metal band like nothing you have ever heard. Releasing their long awaited sophomore album "Sounds of the End" in October 2013, the band wasted no time in earning a slot on the roster of US/global label Willowtip Records. Hailing from the land of Van Diemen, MEPHISTOPHELES' music is complex and dissonant, frantically switching between "ruthless death metal aggression, esoteric black metal, progressive moments, and some occasional blasting blackened terror" (nocleansinging.com). Do not miss the chaos in person!

Boasting a massive symphonic death metal sound, Newcastle's THE SEER are a breath of fresh air in a stagnating scene. On the brink of unleashing their new album after their wildly successful "Prologue" EP, THE SEER are Australia's answer to Septicflesh and Dimmu Borgir, covering dramatic symphonic elements with shredding lead guitars in a razor-sharp death metal coating. Well-known for their intense windmill-frenzied live shows, THE SEER will be performing fresh from their recent show supporting Kataklysm.

APPARITIONS OF NULL are a progressive metal band hellbent on destroying all notions of what music should sound like. Specialising in compositions that commonly exceed 25 minutes in length, the band combines furious technical death metal with atmospheric cleans, dramatic acoustic guitars and classical solos. The group have been praised for their dark, unique sound, described as a "must-hear for those who enjoy the more progressive and melodic side of metal" (metalobsession.net). After slaying audiences at Progfest Sydney and opening for France's Hypno5e last year, APPARITIONS OF NULL are ready to bring their intense live show to bear in 2014.
