Daemon Foetal Harvest to launch album at East West Death Fest!

Posted by mothereel

So Beast!

Wollongong Death Metal act Daemon Foetal Harvest have smashed out an amazing album of riffage.  Competing with Broozer and Tanned Christ, it's a contender for my Album of the Year.  We'll see what sticks in my head most when I'm compiling that list and waiting for your opinions to be sprayed.

There's no real point in me waffling on longer than I have.  You can listen to the band by going to a gig or go to their bandcamp to hear their recorded effort.  I won't make up your mind for you, not this time (but I will judge your decision accordingly).

See DFH at East West Death Fest 7 or go to their facebook for more information on their other shows.
You can purchase the album from the band's bandcamp


Dark Horse take on Japan

Posted by mothereel
Missed opportunity

It should have been a horse vs giant being

I'm extremely envious.  Those boys have managed to pull off an amazing little tour over in one of my favourite countries, Japan.  It's not right that I am though, neither of my bands have put in much effort to do anything but yeah....  How good is it to be human!

Anyway, here's the details of their first show and it's a doozey!  Bands from all over are coming together for this bit of messy noise.

Dick jokes and Jap jokes *sigh*

Up there in the Jap's eye!   An all international cast!

Then there's the big one, the massive deal, probably one of their greatest gigs to date... The Japanese Obscene Extreme!

See if you get that one!

The way it all goes down.

So many great bands, so many forms of freak music, Obscene always rules!!  We wish you well young Australian men!

You can purchase many Dark Horse things from the Grindhead Records website such as their album Sick of the Living/High on Death, the split with Repulsion-esque Black Jesus, or the other split with Indonesian Gore Grinders Badak Singa.

You also have the choice of going to their bandcamp.

Every Year Death Grinds!

Another year, 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, the mightiest contribution from Victoria, Tasmania is showing up and even a few bois from the A.C.T are coming around to make some noise.

Split over 2 days/nights, you'll have to plan ahead for this one.  Buying entry to both shows gets you a healthy discount.

Keep up to date with set times and other announcements by going to the facebook event page.

Wretch: A Video with quite a bit of Hatred

Posted by mothereel

Wretch have been busy working on their second album "Tirades", in order to get you to splutter your morning coffee in a rush to buy it, they've released this NSFW video.  The video to the song titled, "A Fucktonne of Hate", is not that risky, I wouldn't fire you for watching it, just some morally horrid snippets.  Pretty slick production!


Tirades will be released on November 13, 2015.

Keep in the loop:



Aussie Terror: Captain Cleanoff Tour

Posted by mothereel

Good Ol' Clean Fun!


They've been fairly busy between albums, but you're right, it's been a while!  This should make up for it, unless you happened to catch them overseas (and those SE Asian shows looked ripping!) then you'll know what to expect.
