Diploid, those Victorian people who play a form of Blackened Hardcore and feature a dual 'gender equal' vocal attack, are coming to Sydney and its surrounds. They are even joined by Queenslanders, Dirty Charlie, on the Saturday. That's two interstate bands plus some pretty good locals for the price of one!
Diploid, the band that has recorded a song featuring Extortion's Rohan doing vocals and that features members from recent to Sydney band Idle Minds, will pleasantly surprise your Sydney elite-ish sensibilities.
Diploid, go and see them.
Sub-heading: JCP and BP split launch, Counter Attack & Peter Brock Sydney Tour
Over the hills and through the woods, starting from South Australia, booze fueled grinders, Guantanamo Bay City Rollers return to Sydney for at least 3 days of grind. They bring fellow South Australians Peter Brock and Victoria's Counter Attack.
Friday night sees GBCR launch their album 'Dark Side Of The Goon' alongside Statesmen, the V8 power violence band, Peter Brock and Counter Attack, from Victoria. Counter Attack is made up of members from the legendary Mass Appeal, Open Wound, Nihilistic View, Softcocks & probably more bands that should be mentioned. This line up is filled out with some of Sydney's heroes in the form of: Chinese Burns Unit, Epics & Frank Rizzo. Doors open at 7pm. Gonna be a huge night!
Jesus Christ Posse and Battle Pope team up to launch their split 12" LP. Counter Attack sit this one out, or play somewhere else (I've not been told). Ignoring the bands mentioned on the flyer the current night looks like this: Jesus Christ Posse, Battle Pope, Guantanamo Bay City Rollers, Killsong, Peter Brock. The show has been moved from The Lansdowne, due to temporary combustion issues, you can now join in the action at The Roxbury in Glebe. It starts at 7:30pm.
Sunday rounds out the weekend at Blackwire Records, it starts early, doors at 3pm and sees the return of Counter Attack to join the South Australians along with Sydney D-contingent: Dark Horse, Disparo! & Disintegrator.
Sunday...? Alright, I've got the Blackwire Records page, that'll do!

From the cold climes of the upper Blue Mountains comes some of the most slamming, depraved Death Grind in the form of Festering Drippage. After supporting Macabre, they have locked themselves in caves, masturbated furiously (presumably) and managed to crank out an EP. This is their gig to show you why you need it. Put together by Grindhead Records, this gig contains all kinds of current upcoming Death Metal and Grindcore bands. I'm extremely excited to see Throat Of Dirt again after watching them display their grinding filth in Canberra a few weeks ago.
The facebook event page says this:
Grindhead Records Presents a night of death grinding havoc for the launch of Festering Drippage's mentally deranged debut EP 'Fungally Infected Fistathon'!
Darkhorse have quickly become a known for their fierce and blasting live show! With catchy as all fuck Napalm death styled riffs, blindly intense drumming and vicious vocals that all combine to annihilate the senses.
The steamrolling death metal machine, New Blood will be in the middle of their tour in support their brutally crushing debut album 'Subsistence'! A tight, precise and devastating performance is insured.
Exekute draw from the early 90's heyday when Death Metal took the classic thrash sound and morphed it into a more violent and potent force. Influenced by the likes of Benediction, Monstrosity and Malevolent Creation, Exekute will tear the Valve apart.
Throat Of Dirt are a new unruly mob out of the nation's capital bringing their dissonant grinding hate to Sydney for the first time.
Infested Entrails are no strangers to the Sydney death circuit. With a plethora of shows under their belts including supporting Macabre earlier this year, Infested Entrails are becoming a solid death unit.
Up first are the old new comers, The Holiday Project! Mixing a cohesive blend of sludge and grind! If ya dig Nasum, Cursed, Melvins, Eyehategod, Converge & Burning Witch, then The Project will deliver.
Festering Drippage 11.15 - 12.00
Darkhorse 10.30 - 11.00
New Blood 9.30- 10.15
Exekute 8.45 - 9.15
Throat Of Dirt (ACT) 8.00 - 8.30
Infested Entrails 7.15 - 7.45
The Holiday Project 6.30 - 7.00
Doors open at 6pm & Entry is $10
Sydney d-beat crust hardcore punx roxers Dark Horse have got their 2011 demo online for free download. It's pretty nice man. Real raging, nice noisy, crust production and solid playing.
The band is full of old mates who have been around for ages. Dark Horse has members of Dischord, Frank Rizzo, None Remain, Rock N' Roll Weapon, Unclean, Vae Victus, Cause and Effect, etc. That's probably why they don't suck.
Then you can like them on Facebook and we can all be e-friends.
Featuring members of None Remain, Rock n Roll Weapon, Vae Victus and Hope in a slingshot. Live at Blackwire, Friday the 13th of January. Thanks to Jarrod O'Brien for the videos.
