Stole this from somewhere else, pretty cool/interestting if you havent picked up on it before

Mhorgl tore my face off and Wardaemonic made me feel like I was wandering across several cosmic planes.

It was a great night, big ups to Nails and Naetu also :headbang:

This is gonna be KILLER!

Get down to the Civic and SUPPORT! They're opening the doors to the black metal hordes and other bands like Extortion, so if they're a decent turnout and we drink the bar dry, it bodes very well for future shows  :headbang:


While I love the enthusiasm and idea, things like Visa's may give you major grief..

Great reviews, I might throw my hat in the ring and do some later.

Pretty spot on about Skinman, there really wasnt anyway they could follow up Destitution. I remember seeing the cover art and then hearing a few tracks and being really underwhelmed.

Amazing show!!

Contrive, well what can be said? BAD sound and BAD songs. A weird mix of 'alternative/post metal' thrash, Haugys drums were wwwwwwwwwwayyyyy off, all the cymbals in the world cant hide that. Also playing for 20 seconds doesnt equal a drum solo.

Hevy Devy was awesome, cant believe they played 'Om'!  :headbang:

While i suppose it makes sense to save gigs for 'good occasions' its means that you're gonna have to work much harder at promoting your band and releases. If you limit your gigs then the amount of people 'familiar' with your songs could potentially drop.

Looking forward to having the oppurtunity to play and kicking off the nights proceedings  :)

Such a postive and refreshing attitude to playing first  :)

Its just as much an honour to open a  gig as to headline

This and the first release = awesome!

Scott Kay will be on ANGER MANAGEMENT this monday to chat about all things 'K'  :headbang:

Yeah just be careful where you put posters. Perth City Council have started to fine venues who pass it on to the promoters, so even if the promoter themselves didnt put the poster up (say it was a band member) they could cop a fine.

Its fucked, considering places like Metro city have HUGE posters and HUGE budgets to cover any fines.

Plan your posterage  cafefully metallers  :headbang:

If you got 700 people at $12 a head into Amplifer bar (thats, err, $8400), who gives a shit if you pay $500 for "advertising expenses".

Biggest fine Ive ever heard of was $200, and the guys were forced to scrape the ads off... AFTER the gig. They sold out Black Bettys, so Im sure they were fine with the... fine...

Thats a fair call, it was more of a warning to bands 'starting out' that they might cop it though.

I dont get how 'playing too much' is a factor? You like metal (or any music), the chance to see it played live once/twice a month should be a gift no? You listen to a cd at home or in the care how many times, people go see (some) cover bands in pubs playing the same sets of songs, why is it seen as bad to play often? Its a good chance to learn your craft in front of an audience and shake off the stage fright.

Also Freo isnt that far, i used to make the trek from Rockingham to the Grosevenor back room (sans kwinana freeway south) to see bands.

People are getting picky about what they spend their time and money on, so pull your pants up and write better songs  :P

Bogan is kind of a derogatory term for people, metalhead and bogan are not one and the same. Bogans can listen to Eminem, Nickleback etc

Senton, you're absolutely right that after the AMA's it would have been beneficial to follow up with some kind of tour or something, but I guess such activities are limited by time and money. With 3 of the guys in the band being students and therefore having no money, it became virtually impossible to tour at will, especially when band funds had been well and truly depleted after the European tour and then the AMA event itself.

Didnt mean to come across as having a dig man, its more dissapointing that no promoters or none of your contacts could have taken advantage of the situation (plus rating highly on national radio polls) and offered you guys a couple of shows or something.

A few more random thoughts..

I think, maybe, for bands you have to decide where you want to go.

Are you happy with it being a 'hobby'? Play the occasional gig and maybe fund a cd/ep? If family and work commitments limit you, then this is your situation. Nothing wrong with it, but you wont get 'far' in the grand scheme of things and play to friends and a few die hards.

Do you want to make a career playing music? Best of luck to you, its not impossible but you might have to take a similar route to Damo and play in cover bands 3/4 nights a week. At least you'l be getting great at your chosen instrument, gaining valuable stage time to shake any stage fright and play a variety of different crowds and venues.

Is gaining national and international recognition a goal? Maybe getting an album contract? Again its not impossible. Allegiance, Alchemist (signed to relapse), iNFeCTeD (signed to Shock/Thrust), N.I.L (signed to Roadrunner). Promote yourself well and play the hell out of ALL shows regardless of the size of the crowd as you never know who is watching..

Also, guys if you have momentum RUN WITH IT or you will lose it. Your brand new cd is released: awesome. Promote it, send it out for review and plan some more gigs to give the new tracks airing.

Even if you're doing minimal stuff, update your audience/friends/fans with things ANYTHING to keep you in peoples minds. A small blog/article with photos showing you jamming/recording etc I love Chaos Divine and am glad for their success, but I cant help but fell they've lost a bit of momentum after the AHMA win by not doing much (although i know there are many factors involved here)

  This CD is the first one that has been barcoded so the first we can put in shops. 

You dont need a barcode  to put cds in 78s. dadas or Planet, just an ABN.

Its probably the timing man.

From what I can tell, the gig was first announced/posted up on the 27th December, so obviously theres Xmas and New Years to get people distracted. Thats gonna affect the amount of people who are aware of the gig regardless of how much you promote it. Plus with the 'Straya day public holiday just after, thats another factor.

You have to admit Neverborns music is also 'unusual' . Its complex and aggressive with a lot of layers going on there. Also, and no offence as this is all just how i see it and constructive criticism, but perhaps people/randoms arent too familiar with you guys still.

Neverborn are one of the hardest working metal bands Ive seen as far as 'stage production' and trying to put on a show with the props etc, but Ive NEVER seen a Neverborn cd or Tshirt in 78's, Dadas or Planet. This is important for you guys (and ANY bands). You have tracks on compilations with links back to your myspace, and you have some links there but PROMOTE THAT! Get people to know about it.

Also, occasionally maybe you undo your hard work with some forum 'tit for tat'. If you take some of Perth metals 'bigger name' bands, very rarely do they get in online rants/arguments. Im not saying you shouldnt be on, but you are representing your band pretty much on here.

But thats just my 2c, the cd sounds great, and the artwork is pretty great too. Keep at it guys and dont get disheartened :)
