SFD - Old school Perth metal band compilation release

I was contacted by Chris from Into The Pit Records because he's working on a compilation release for old Perth metal band SFD to put it out there to see if anyone might have some old photos or flyers etc to include in the CD artwork. If anyone has something or knows someone that does you can contact him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Unfortunately, SFD were before my time so I never got to see them, but I've heard good things mentioned about them from time to time, and they sound pretty good. Anyone that's curious check out this track:


WAM Song of the Year 2013

Metal bands of WA, if you haven't already, have a think about entering the WAM Song of the Year competition. I've been a judge on the panel before so don't think it's pointless to enter and fluff and garbage only gets a look in.

There is a heavy category and prizes for winning that. There is cash to win, recording time and a bunch of other cool things so check it out. Submissions are now open until July 22 so jump to it. What do you have to lose - nothing, what do you have to gain - cool shit!

Psychonaut - False Metal Video Clip

Just added the new (and awesome) Psychonaut music video to the Videos page (scroll down to the bottom) so go check it out if you haven't already. It captured the vibe of the old school metal party videos and ups the ante. Good tunes and good times!

Metal at Perth Fringe Festival

Psychonaut play the Perth Fringe Festival Friday the 22nd of February, 2013, at the Leederville Hotel upstairs bar - the first heavy act at Fringe World Perth! Australia's heavy metal/rock maniacs team up with one of Australia's leading & over the top laser light/smoke show. Supported by Reaper's Riddle & The Branson Tramps. PSYCHONAUT LASER HELL!!

The name says it all a good old fashioned rock show with the added power of LASERS (power levels in excess of 9000) For years scientists have been using lasers to make things more awesome, take the laser wielding metallic ostrich for example. By using top secret technologies we have devised a way to combine rock music with lasers, to create an event that will leave you glazed with awe! Audio visual effect that will emerge you in the music, lasers and lighting effects that will twist your very perception of what a rock show should be. Be there as Psychonaut summon the lasers powers to show you the very meaning of metal! Be there when Reapers Riddle will rise form the fog and summon grim himself! Be there when The Branson Tramps lay the down the mightiest of riffs!
