What a crazy month it has been and is for metal, with Carcass doing an awesome show last week, Down having just been, Meshuggah about to play and a lot more to come – Dragonforce, Pig Destroyer, Slipknot and Machine Head. And that is just the internation acts.. there has been plenty of top local gear going and more to look forward to – this weekend alone has Claim The Throne doing their album/book launch and then Malignant Monster doing a merch launch the following day.

Good times for metal in Australia, and next month and the future only holds more. Be sure to always check out the gig guide for upcoming events.
