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. 

Metal Jamboree - This Saturday!

This Saturday will see a gig at the Charles hotel which is also a surprise birthday show for a couple of people, and has a cool and diverse line up of bands. Newcomers Calopcia will have their brand of doom, black metallers Mhorgl, melodic death merchants Red Descending AND to top it all off, Sabotage - playing a full set of early era Black Sabbath covers, all faithful renditions!

Entry is only $10 for a great night of metal, and doors are open at 8pm. You'll definitely see me there (on-stage no less) so I look forward to seeing you down there too - Charles hotel, Charles Street in North Perth.

The launch gig will have supports by Pyromesh, UTI and Noctis, with more details to follow. Voyager have been signed to German label Dockyard 1 for the album, who will be releasing it worldwide on the 26th of October. Australian distribution shall be through Riot.

Tribute to Euronymous and Mayhem

Friday 10th August marks the 14 year anniversary of the death of MAYHEM guitarist, Euronymous. Four local Perth black metal bands have joined forces to pay tribute to the emperor of black metal. Bereavement, Wardaemonic and The Furor will honour Euronymous by playing one or two MAYHEM tracks within their set.

This night has been 14 years in the making so get on down to the Heat nightclub this Friday to witness it become frostbitten and grim. Check out the gig guide for more details.
