Very classy way to end things, best of luck with Sov Studios and the future.

For many people, Pathogen were the first local metal band the heard/got into. Respect  :headbang:

Fucking brilliant!  Watching Gwar was surreal, I can't believe they crammed SO MUCH into a 40 minute set, and they played mostly old stuff!  They have their stage show down to a fine art after all these years, they can set up and clean down all that stuff in no time.  Spewing Cyborg Destructo lost his mic for most of his song though.

3 Inches of Blood were awesome too, Dropkicks and Katatonia - I missed NOFX, anyone have any thoughts?

Joondalup Arena has a pretty great layout, both stages sounded pretty good and getting around was a breeze - even getting into the gig after the doors opened was easy as.

The second best thing about GWAR was the thought of Parkway Drive dancing around in Oderus' semen.


NOFX were pretty good, copped 2 water bottle shots to the head about 30 seconds into the first song. Also played the opening riff to Megadeths 'Symphony of Destruction'.

Again, I cant stress enough, Suicide Silence were awful

The Good:

3 Inches Of Blood
Frenzal Rhomb were funny

The Bad:
Me First And The Gimmie Gimmies (yeah i get the joke, but Katatonia etc could have had an extra song or two)
Food vans constantly running out of food

The Ugly:
My t-shirt post Gwar
Suicide Silence

Thought id have a crack!

iNFeCTeD - Trial (demo tape 1996)

They coulda been contenders. This was the release that should have brought Infected to a wider audience.

Around this time Roadrunner was looking to sign a few Australian metal bands. Rumours ran hot that it could be either Infected or Melbourne based Discordia. It turned out that neither band got the nod and Roadrunner signed two Perth acts: Non Intentional Lifeform on the back of some blistering live showcases and bizarrely indie pop band Effigy.

* Irrelevant sidenote: Adam Pedretti from NIL played in Killing Heidi and Effigy did a whole bunch of nothing after some minor success. Just like Roadrunner Australia OH SNAP~!

Back to Infected. After the underrated 'Control' got them dropped from Shock, the bad released this 3 track demo. The word 'trial' meaning both a trialing of new sounds/songs/arrangements and 'industrial', which was arguably the core of their sound.

'Disown' opens with a jerky and erratic keyboard loop (much better than some of the sounds on Control), pounding drums and Joey K's deep/low voice. Its a slow burner building in tension and getting more aggressive with an awesome finish. Interesting and creative lyrics which I believe were based around a book that i have long forgotten the name of.

'Hatecrime' is next and a cracker of a track. A heavy stop/start riff that many would compare to Fear Factory (Demanufacture being released a few months or so before). Again, creative keyboard sounds litter the track and Joey Ks has intelligent, thoughtful lyrics. Guitarist Matthew Jefferson gets a well placed solo also

'Brick Wall View' closes out the tape and starts out with a bang, fast and aggressive. Lyrically the pre-chorus is a bit, uhhh, 'clumsy' compared to previous songs , but its a good closer. Moody low vocals in the chorus.

I get the feeling that had a label picked them up and gave them some time and money, these ideas would have been allowed to grow. Who knows what might have happened. Ultimately, the band split, apparently a 'move to melbourne' would have been the only option to keep the band in label reps eyesights.

Infected re-formed for a one off show in 2003 to release 'Trial' on cd with a bonus track and again in 2008-9 to release trial as a backing to the single 'Straight White God'. They played an awesome show at amps and the final show at the Hyde Park hotel was a sad farewell, low crowd and shitty technical problems.

Joey K formed C.O.G (not that one) which I never heard much of and Headshot, before moving onto the more rocking The Devil Rides Out. James went to form the awesome Tyrant and now plays in Mhorgl (I believe Rob Thorpe from Mhorgl played live keys on a reunion show?). Gareth played incredible session drum on Tyrants demo tape and i *think* played in hardcore band PC Thug? I think Matt still plays guitar but isnt in any bands and Bjorg has pretty much retired from making music.

Who's responsible for the Inf-an-try Corps !  :headbang:

Heh, nice 'Spice Weasel' reference in the review :laugh:

I think the Civic security were to be commended, a lot of venues wouldnt allow many people to walk from room to room with drinks in hand nowadays

Not that they could really stop that many drinkers  :P

Many thanks to those Soundworks bastards for a huge event on Saturday.  :clap:

Most definitely. Even though I was at the IGI merch desk most of the time, it was a great event. Plenty of people around to chat with. The sausage sizzle was a great idea, need to have them at more gigs. Looking forward to next year already!

If it works for Bunnings...;)

Ruins were fucking awesome

General discussion / Heavy Metal and the remix album
« on: October 08, 2010, 12:26:10 AM »
Reading the 'electronic music' thread got me thinking.. :hmm:

Arguably popularised by Fear Factory in the 90's, the concept of a 'remix' album for some metal/rock bands became an exciting step into uncharted waters. Bands as diverse as Avulsed (cybergore), Godflesh, The Mark Of Cain and Melvins have all had remix albums/eps with varying results.

Due to oversaturation, and the fact the 'Remanufacture' couldnt really live up to the hype placed upon it, nowadays 'remix' is pretty much blanket term for any song sped up with the lead guitars taken out and the real drums replaced by a dance beat. Any no name can become a 'dj' with cheap recording/daw software.

So, is a 'remix' album for a metal band still relevent? Are there any bands that you think would/could sound great via remix? I know Emperor had an excellent remix of track by Ulver (i think). Locally Infected have had a song given a remix. I think maybe Red Descending, Neverborn and Chaos Divine could have some cool sounds from a decent remix. Has it crossed any of the bands on this forums minds at one point in time.

Thoughts?  :err:

Venetian Snares, Boards of Canada and Autechre all have their moments.

^ Agreed, also James Plotkins Atomsmasher.

I think if it has a 'metal' connection to it, people will give it more of a chance. Some of the ambient/electronic/whatever stuff ranging from Wongraven, Ulver, Scorn etc

They supported Pantera on their first tour downunder and were about 100 times better than them.

Pantera seemed more concerned with mucking around with roadies and getting footage for a new video than playing a good show that year  :err:

Just get some wood and make a little dolly for it - a square piece of wood with 4 wheels on it and a tow rope and you'll be golden :)

Thought about that, also got told that a skateboard would do the trick  :laugh:

Sound Advice / Amp Transport
« on: August 01, 2010, 03:43:05 AM »
Ok so my girlfriend plays guitar in a band and uses a VOX AC30. Not a bad amp, but weighs about 22 kilos though, so its bloody heavy to carry around.

Casters (Wheels) arent really gonna be able to hold the weight, and several music shops have advised us against drilling into it ( i dont really fancy destroying it).

I was wondering if anybody could either recommend a cheap 'road case' or has anybody had luck making their own...
