Judas Preist – Australian Tour

Posted by Matt

Judas PriestOne of the world's biggest metal bands Judas Priest, who have sold more than 35 million albums worldwide, will bring their mammoth Priest Feast 2008 tour to Australian fans in September.

The Priest Feast tour will showcase their hugely impressive legacy as well as new tracks from their forthcoming album Nostradamus, which will be released by Sony BMG on 14 June, 2008.

The new album is a metal opera based on the life and predictions of Nostradamus. Long in the works, Nostradamus takes epic storytelling to a whole new level, as it recounts the life of this mysterious, world known 16th Century French prophet.

Judas Priest will be joined by special international guests Cavalera Conspiracy, Sepultura's Max & Igor reunited and Australia's own Daysend.

Wednesday 10 September - Brisbane Entertainment Centre
Friday 12 September - Acer Arena, Sydney
Saturday 13 September - Hisense Arena, Melbourne
Sunday 14 September - Adelaide Entertainment Centre
Tuesday 16 September - Burswood Dome, Perth

Against The Grain 4 (SA) Festival Line-up Announced

Posted by Lachlan

Aww yeah, the line up for Against The Grain 4 on Saturday the 13th of September has been released. It's being promoted as all ages, all day and all metal at 'Fowlers Live', so get out your eyeliner, straighten your hair, praise Lucifer, whack on that bullet belt and patch jacket and practice your windmills because when it rains metal, it fucking pours!!!

Man I feel like Andrew Haug writing that level of metal cheese. This looks like a bit of a more mainstream/commercial metal festival, but its great to see The Ocularis Infernum on the bill.

Heres the full line-up anyhow:

- Psycroptic (TAS)
- Alchemist (ACT)
- Daysend (NSW)
- Double Dragon (SA)
- Picture The End (SA)
- Truth Corroded (SA)
- Dyscord (WA)
- Diatribe (SA)
- The Ocularis Infernum (VIC)
- Skintilla (SA)
- State of Integrity (QLD)
- A Red Dawn (SA)
- Se Bon Ki Ra (SA)
- Asphyxia (SA)

Tickets will only set you back ~$30 which is pretty impressive considering the number of larger and interstate bands, and the fest runs from midday to midnight. You can hook up tickets from Venuetix and Moshtix.

Heavy mental.
