Australian Tours / Re: Coffins Australian Tour - Sept 2010
« on: November 15, 2010, 03:16:08 PM »
Sorry for epic bump, but I meant to show these around from the Melbourne show:


More Ignivomous

Gospel of the Horns

More Gospel of the Horns

Crowd waiting for Coffins

Bungo (guitars/vox)

Tako (bass)

Ryo (well....his hand anyway...drums)

Coffins and Obsidian before heading off to Melbourne Airport.

We've uploaded the 'secret track' at the end of the album as a separate track on our bandcamp site for easier access for those who like their rock a bit.....doomier.

Have a listen? Josh and I have toyed around with putting out an EP of songs all in this vein.

Queensland / Defamer lineup change.
« on: August 16, 2010, 05:30:15 PM »
It is with great regret that we announce the departure of Mitch 'Lanky' Rogers from the Defamer brood.  Mitch is and will always remain one of our closest friends, and we feel nothing but honoured to have shared stages, jam rooms, tour buses and cramped airline seats with such a talented guitarist and amazing dude.  Real life is something of a bitch when it comes to dedicated bands, always in the way and rarely conquerable, but onwards we battle!  Mitch's final shred fest on-stage will be at the crushing BASTARDFEST show on Saturday the 28th of August at the Globe Theatre, Brisbane.  Please get up the front to send off our comrade in style!

But it is with great excitement we announce the addition of Byron Struck to our death metal family.  Having shared stages when Byron was playing in seminal black metal outfit Oracle of the Void, being on tour together and becoming great friends, we're all very excited to so quickly and adequately fill such a overwhelming gap in our fold.

Defamer is nearing completion of their second album as a follow up to 2009's debut offering Chasm of which one track "The Great Rift" can be heard on our myspace and also purchased on a 7" split with Rookwood through Obsidian Records.

Australian Tours / BARONESS side shows Oct/Nov
« on: August 13, 2010, 05:54:29 PM »

Rising from the Savannah swamplands in 2003, BARONESS have exploded onto the musical landscape with a sound built upon a resolute sense of purpose and shaped by hundreds of explosive live shows, which has elevated them from the rest of the metal pack.

Their debut ?Red Album? sat the metal community fairly and squarely on its ass with its sonic vision; colossal riffs and haunting vocals rolling like thunder across epic songs spanning both the intense and the sublime. The album was so impressive Revolver Magazine named it Album of the Year.

Yet, their sophomore release ?The Blue Record?, has truly lifted the bar again. It?s a ferocious album that?s not afraid to be genuinely beautiful and ?truly depicts a band at the peak of their powers.? ? Alternative Press

Touring nationally with Metallica throughout October and November, BARONESS will be playing 3 intimate shows only in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.


SUNDAY 17 OCTOBER    BRISBANE, THE ZOO ? 18+ & Oztix outlets


FRIDAY 19 NOVEMBER   MELBOURNE, GERSHWIN ROOM ? 18+ 132 849, & Oztix outlets

Presented by Metal As Fuck and Soundwave Touring.

After being around for only a few years and supporting the likes of Mondo Generator (USA), Winnebago Deal (UK), Pod People (ACT), Clagg (VIC) and a plethora of local and interstate talent, SHELLFIN bring their grooving stoner rock goodness to the red-eyed masses once more!

With their EP, Stay For Tea, sold out in physical form SHELLFIN have been locked away and hard at work writing and recording their sophomore release. "Secondhand Family" boasts eight tracks of their trademark detuned, groovin' take on the cult genre from the mid nineties. SHELLFIN are happy to announce the track listing as follows:

1. The Extent of It
2. Cruzzin
3. In The Head
4. Short Spew
5. Hedgehog
6. Fleischgeist
7. Whats That Smell?
8. The Intervening Time

Recorded by MKH/Ean Redman (Astriaal, Carbon) and mastered by Jason "PC" Fuller (Bloodduster), "Secondhand Family" will be distributed nationally by Aztec Music on the 1st of September.  On this date the album will also be available online for a fee of which you nominate!  You read correct, pay us a minor fee (even nothing at all, for the cheap bastards out there) and we'll make the album available downloading ease.  Information to follow on how to do that!

For now you can enjoy two new tracks on the SHELLFIN MYSPACE.

To support the two new tracks on the MYSPACE, we've put together a clip of some of our live endeavours to the new track "Cruzzin" which can be viewed here:

Information on a November launch show will be coming soon!

Fans or prospective labels can contact Shellfin at shellfin[at]hotmail[dot]com or through management.

Two more interviews have gone up on the BASTARDFEST site as we inch closer to the gig!

First we have Nathan and Luke from High Plains Drifter talking about selling out and Nathan's mum which you can listen to here:

And then I got to do something I've wanted to get around to for about 5-6 years, I turned the mic around and interviewed Rodney about his running-of, organising and playing at METAL FOR THE BRAIN.  Easily Australia's most successful metal festival that ran from 1991 to 2006, with lineups that read like the who's-who of Australian metal.  Great to hear about such an important piece of our Aussie metal history, have a listen here:

Rodney has uploaded another interview, this time with Brad Wesson of Soundworks Touring who gives a really interesting insight on the goings-on behind big international metal tours.


Rodney of Alchemist/Metal For The Brain fame has organised a couple of amazing shows around the country that he's looking to make into an annual event called BASTARDFEST.  There will be more details to come soon, but heres the basics of it:

Brisbane - Saturday August 28th @ The Globe
Pod People
High Plains Drifter
Support act - TBA (submit your demos at the site to win this spot

Melbourne - Saturday September 4th @ The Corner
Captain Cleanoff
The Kill

Perth - TBA

Rodney is doing a series of interviews with lots of different band members that are appearing on all the lineups, the first of which was with me.  We talk about the state of Aussie metal, the show itself, running a record label and make fun of a few friends.  Goes for about 30 minutes, have a listen here:

General discussion / Rookwood/Defamer 7" unleashed

Rookwood / Defamer 7" split[/u]
Obsidian Records e-store.

Strengthening a link across the border, NSW's ROOKWOOD and QLD's DEFAMER unleash their first vinyl release upon the metal realms.

The ROOKWOOD track "Anti" extends a vicious fuck you to all scenesters delivered over their trademark black/punk attack. If you liked "You Worship Shit", you can't go past this.
Click here to check out the track on Rookwoods Myspace

The death metal fury of DEFAMER's debut album "Chasm" is harnessed and focused into one track in "The Great Rift". Again recorded live with Ean Redman, this song shows a maturing in song writing and doesn't let up the hate from start to finish.
Click here to check out the track on Defamers Myspace

Only 200 copies of this black vinyl were pressed, get in early while you still can.
Get your copies from the Obsidian Records e-store or direcly from Defamers bigcartel online store.

Australian Tours / Defamer/Human NZ&Aus tour Apr/May.
« on: March 16, 2010, 04:15:34 PM »
All tour info, including songs and videos from each band, can be found here:

Based in Christchurch, New Zealand HUMAN has the unique distinction of being one of the longest serving metal acts in New Zealand history. Now celebrating their 18th year in sonic punishment the four piece group have played hundreds of shows, appeared on live national television (no less than three times) and have released nearly a dozen recordings - all of this achieved with the same do-it-yourself approach that fueled the bands' humble beginnings in a one room inner city bed-sit in March 1992. Human have also had the privilege of sharing stages with some of the world biggest metal acts including Dragonforce, Suffocation and Cannibal Corpse.
The band's latest album 'Cadaver Academy' has managed to capture Human in top form. Twelve tracks of ferocious guitar riffing, blazingly fast drums, guttural bass lines and 4 ranges of death metal vocals all working to great effect. Added to the mix is the bands now infamous tongue in cheek humour on tracks like "Roid Rage," "Centrifugal Skin Removal" and "Anal Devastation" which features samples by none other than Bob Saget

For more information on Human visit the following sites:
Official HUMAN Facebook page

Joining Human are Australian death metal quintet DEFAMER.  Hailing from Brisbane, DEFAMER have had a stellar run in the past year with their debut album "Chasm" selling out (now in second pressing), multiple tours and supporting great names like Cannibal Corpse, Krisiun and Destroyer666/Rotting Christ/MalevolentCreation/DarkFuneral and many more at the first Screamfest.

This tour will mark the release of their first vinyl in the form of a 7" split with Sydney metallers ROOKWOOD and their first journey overseas, showcasing songs from both "Chasm" and unreleased tracks from an upcoming second album.  DEFAMER can't wait to bring their crushing old school death metal sound back to the stage, and to do it in fine company.

Public metal forums for local scenes will always get this crap from gr1mmo's and elitists.  We get it on brismetal, metalshop is all trolls (all-be-it funny ones), has similar arguments, has tiffs over it and it's even worse for the biiiig forums like JJJ's and Ultimatemetal etc etc (even if they're not local per-se)

You'll never justify your point to them, and their stance will never make sense to those who do come to local aussie shows and enjoy them.

I'm not sure how old this forum is, but brismetal just " ::)" at these guys and continues on as normal, tends to be only the young'uns that get to worked up over them these days.  They're not worth the time/internet space.
