AusGrind: Australian underground grindcore, punk, doom and DIY culture.

4 good reasons to catch Slaughterfest this Saturday

I thought I'd do up a quick article with a few reasons why you shouldn't miss out on saucy Sydney's Slaughterfest III this Saturday at the somewhat seedy Sandringham Hotel (Alliteration. I'm clever.) - other than the obvious - that there are a whole score of kick-arse bands, and you can enjoy 12 hours of Australian grind, death, stoner and doom for a mere $20.

Captain Cleanoff: One of Australia's most renown grind bands. These guys deliver a slew of old school punk-influenced grind tunes in the style of Napalm Death. Their toe-tapping tunes recently took them over to Europe to play Obscene Extreme 2009. They also supported the awesome Brutal Truth while they were at it.

Captain Cleanoff - Hardcore Fashion Parade

The Kill: If Captain Cleanoff are one of our more renown grind bands, then The Kill are definitely our most violent; channeling the sheer unabated blasting aggression of Discordance Axis and Gridlink. Unpretentious caustic grindcore. This will be their first Sydney show in a long, long time (that is, if they ever even played in Sydney when Neil was singing for them...).

The Kill - Axe Attack / We Want Blood

Looking Glass: Fuck Wolfmother. These guys are hands down, without a doubt the best stoner rock band currently active in Australia. Fusing the nightmarish intensity of Jimi Hendrix psychedelia with baked Black Sabbath riffing and the sludged out heaviness of Kyuss, these guys will fucking blow you away - guaranteed. They have an incredible energy live. Don't miss this one.

Looking Glass - Acid Tongue

Ebolie: Sydney's booze-fueled metallic grinders with a penchant for bad jokes, drunken intensity, and dropping 16th notes without anyone particularly noticing. A combination of Nasum, Botch, Cephalic Carnage and The Dillinger Escape Plan. Get loose. Between you and me this might be one the last times you catch these guys. They're also supporting Brutal Truth the following Monday.

Ebolie - Cronullafornia

For the record, Pod People don't seem to have a fucking thing up on YouTube. Bastards.

Catch you all there Saturday. Things kick off at midday and the show may sell out - so get there early to avoid disappointment.

    Google you retards. Use it.

    In all seriousness – Thank you to the Slaughterfest team for chucking us on you guys rule, had a blast.

  2. Technically one would typically use YouTube’s search instead of Google search when looking for YouTube movies… and I had found that clip – I just didn’t want to use a music video and gave up trying.

    Slaughterfest definitely ruled. Until 2010!
