Well Soundworks have done it again - another massive tour for us lucky folk downunder. Decapitated are back! Bands like Decapitated don't come along very often, having created a vicious, precise and innovative form of death metal since their inception in 1996. Soundworks Touring are extremely pleased to announce their first shows back, in Australia and New Zealand, to deliver to us all their distinctive brand of technically flawless death metal.
As you would know the Arch Enemy and Suffocation Australian tour is set to kick off, starting off in Perth this Sunday. So here is a nice warm up - we have an audio interview with Mike Smith from Suffocation. Deryk Thomas of the Anger Management radio show got a good length of time with Mike, so it's one to check out. Head to the Audio Interviews page to listen to it in full.

"HEAVY HQ" will showcase four of Perth’s best metal acts to the younger masses commencing 1pm on Sunday 18th October @ YMCA HQ Leederville.
Currently busy writing and recording their next full-length offering, DYSCORD will surface to headline “Heavy HQ”. Needing no introduction to Australian metal heads, Dyscord have laid waste to audiences around the country several times over and then some. With numerous tours and tasty supports under their belts such as Black Dahlia Murder and Kill Switch Engage, Dyscord will deliver an explosive live performance that’s sure to educate the kids! “Heavy HQ” may well be their last all ages show for quite some time as they get towards the business end of their latest recording, so be sure not to miss them.

UNDER THE INFLUENCE are on the cutting edge of Australian metal. There are simply no other acts exploring the same avenues. Mixing influences ranging from Meshuggah to Pantera to Alan Holdsworth, U.T.I create a brand of music accessible to all metal heads old and new. On the verge of signing a national distribution deal for their latest recording "The Brutal Harsh Honest Truth", the lads are keen to impress leading up to it’s release in February 2010. This will be U.T.I’s first gig in front of an all ages crowd. A single from the new album will be available for purchase. (www.uti.com.au)
