Western Australia Metal News

Gigs, gigs, gigs!

As you can tell by looking at the gig guides there is a heap of stuff going on now and in the next few months, but I just thought I'd mention a couple of different ones - for the underages AND the folk that live down Rockingham way there is a gig tomorrow (Saturday, September 16) with metal heavyweights Plague headlining at the Castlerock. The gig goes from 6pm til 10pm and for more details check out the Castlerock website: http://www.castlerock.au.com

Another notable show is Malignant Monster's final show for 2006 which will be in support of Leaves' Eyes and Atrocity this Monday the 18th of September at The Amplifier. Malignant Monster will be on at 8.30pm so get down early to see the last dose of theirawesome brand of death-thrash for the year.

Psycroptic & Plague To Support Cannibal Corpse / WA Venue Change

Psycroptic (TAS) and Plague (WA) have been selected as the bands to nationally support US death metallers Cannibal Corpse on their up-coming Australian/New Zealand tour in October (yes, including Perth!). While they're back in the west, Psycroptic will also play an additional two shows (all-ages & 18+) over that weekend so watch this space and check out our forum for details soon.
