If you've maybe been looking at too much black metal or pop punk, maybe you've missed this... If so, I'm glad, means more tickets for real fans, right?
AUSTRALIAN AND NEW ZEALAND DEATHCRUSHER TOUR
Two of the most influential and legendary acts in the history of the grindcore and death metal genres, NAPALM DEATH and CARCASS, join forces in a pairing that has not been seen for decades, to create the ultimate death metal fans dream package in DEATHCRUSHER.
And I think Extortion rule! Sick is one of the greatest albums by an Australian band. Their live show is generally fantastic.
Just some vids some swell chaps uploaded on the youtube thang. Guess which band I'm in.
They also upload quite a lot of clips from other shows. Much better than my effort with AusGrindTube....
Grinded Into Sludge, the newly established Zine based in Spain, dedicated to everything close to Grindcore and Sludge has just come out.
Hey! This is an Australian Grindcore blog, why should I care? Because they interview Australian bands dammit! Are you so self-centred on your grindr account that nothing makes sense to you anymore?
The fanzine is pro-printed and includes 52 pages written in English, on which you'll find interviews with P.L.F., Sakatat, thedowngoing, Massgrav, Grime, Primitive Man, Roskopp, Dead Instrument, Gets Worse and Lycanthrophy as well as columns, reviews and more.
It's here! Christmas for those into extreme underground local talent has arrived. Bubsy, who plays Santa in this metaphor, has done it again, or maybe he's gone done better than last year! What a line-up!!
Showcasing a bunch of fools with instruments from a wide variety of towns and villages, this year's East West has bands from South Australia, a mighty contingent from Victoria, Queensland is represented and even a few bois from the A.C.T are coming around to make some noise.
Sydney's darlings, Ether Rag, are also launching their highly anticipated 7" so make sure you save a handful of post-beer coins to exchange for that sexy vinyl. Grindhead Records will, of course, also have their distro with a fine selection of extreme music from around the world with maybe even a few choices being available for under $5!
I'm also playing, this time I'm filling the bass and vocals for those handsome Backpacker boys. That should be interesting... hopefully.
