SFD - Old school Perth metal band compilation release

I was contacted by Chris from Into The Pit Records because he's working on a compilation release for old Perth metal band SFD to put it out there to see if anyone might have some old photos or flyers etc to include in the CD artwork. If anyone has something or knows someone that does you can contact him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Unfortunately, SFD were before my time so I never got to see them, but I've heard good things mentioned about them from time to time, and they sound pretty good. Anyone that's curious check out this track:

WAM Song of the Year 2013

Metal bands of WA, if you haven't already, have a think about entering the WAM Song of the Year competition. I've been a judge on the panel before so don't think it's pointless to enter and fluff and garbage only gets a look in.

There is a heavy category and prizes for winning that. There is cash to win, recording time and a bunch of other cool things so check it out. Submissions are now open until July 22 so jump to it. What do you have to lose - nothing, what do you have to gain - cool shit!
