Dimebag Tribute Night - 12/12/2014
« on: October 29, 2014, 02:32:24 PM »
10 years ago heavy metal music lost arguably one of its greatest ever contributors when ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Lance Abbott was tragically shot dead on stage during a performance in Columbus, Ohio. A decade later, and Dime’s legacy lives on in the form of the music he made and his undeniable mastery of the 6 stringed instrument. His influence on heavy music will continue to be felt for generations.
On December 12 2014 we will gather together to pay tribute to the great man by playing his music in his name. Murderfest Australia Presents, The Dimebag Darrell 10 year Tribute Show;

Frankenbok hail from Victoria but are no strangers to Western Australia, having toured here many times including as recently as July when they headlined the annual Murderfest event in both Perth and Bunbury. Veterans of the Australian metal scene & renowned for having a good time and leaving a path of destruction in their wake, there could be no more fitting band to pay tribute to Dimebag than the ‘Bok!

Co-headlining this great event is Earth Rot, Perth’s very own “Black 'n' Death 'n' Grind 'n' Roll” juggernaut. In a relatively short period of time Earth Rot have established themselves as perhaps Perth’s most formidable metal act. High praise, however anyone familiar with the material on their debut EP ‘Dirt’ and follow up Album “Follow the Black Smoke” would be hard pressed to argue. Earth Rot will bring their brand of HM-2 drenched heaviness to the tribute night and will no doubt be primed to destroy, having recently performed at the Rock in Solo festival in Indonesia in October alongside the mighty Carcass.
Cold Fate are Favourites of the Perth scene with good reason, playing a old school thrash metal influenced by greats such as Metallica/Megadeth/Slayer/Kreator/Overkill, these guys have been prolific for a number of years and their longevity is testament to the quality of their material, their live show, and commitment to the cause – Thrash!

Tempest Rising are fast becoming one of Perth’s most prolific heavy bands. Playing a style of metal which is as melodic as it is heavy, these guys are sure to impress. Tempest Rising are releasing their debut Album ‘Transmutation’ in the coming months and are destined for bigger and better things.

Opening the show will be Let’s Kill Uncle. The 5 piece have had a prolific 2014, making a name for themselves in the Perth scene by playing a number of shows and releasing their self titled debut EP in the process. Let’s Kill Uncle’s style is well suited to paying tribute to Dimebag, and are sure to get the crowd going early.

So mark December 12 in your diaries – On this night we to pay homage to one of the true greats in heavy metal music. Five stellar bands play slamming versions of Dime’s music to honour his legacy in amongst sets of their original material. Be there.
