Hype! - Weekly metal night

If you're looking for something metal to do mid-week in Perth then you may be in luck. Starting on Wednesday the 27th of July is Hype!, a new weekly metal / hardcore night with bands, djs and even the odd giveaway. This will be happening at the Rocket Room which I'm sure you're all familiar with if you check out Perth metal shows with any regularity.

I've been told the first couple of nights are a bit more of the hardcore end of the scale but they'll be ramping up to more metal acts after that, so keep an eye out for details as they come, and as always check out the gig guide. Which you might want to do now as it has the full details of the upcoming show.

Article updates!

I've just added a couple of new articles to Western Front - one being a feature page on Vespers Descent. They have a new album ready and have the launch coming up for it soon, so check out their feature page and then check out the show!

Also, there is a new review added of a recent gig, "Virtually Dead", thanks to Trease Riot. So if you were there or just interested to see her take on things and what the show was like then have a squiz.
