Western Front Awards - Epilogue

Thanks to everyone that came down to help populate Metropolis Perth with a sea full of metalheads. It was a great show, with all the bands putting on good performances on the big stage. I hope everyone enjoyed it and had a good night.

There are already a few reviews up of the show - I've put one up done by none other than Western Front co-founder, Warmaster, who graced us with his presence, so check that out here.

There is also a review on the Metal As Fuck site, and on Faster, Louder so follow those links to read them as well.

Best Band: Lacrymae

U.T.I. at Black Betty's

UTILocal tech-metal masters Under The Influence (UTI) will play their first show for 2009 on Sunday 12th April @ Black Bettys, Northbridge.
Supports Include Chaos Divine, Opia and Ravior. Building from a successful Black Bettys show in April 2008, UTI are back with a bigger production and some new tunes for punters to feast their ears on! The three piece have been notably absent from the local scene for some time due to the writing and recording of their third album due out later this year.

Their performance will feature songs from previous albums, “UTI I”, “UTI II”, plus a few examples from their yet to be released third album titled, “The Brutal Harsh Honest Truth”
