DOWNLOAD: Awesome Aussie grind/punk mixtape from Skullfucked CVLT Nation

Posted by Lachlan

Skullfucked CVLT Nation MixtapeSome bloke called Skullfucked created some mix tape called CVLT Nation Mixtape... and he's done a pretty good job!

The mix itself has a bit of grindcore, hardcore, noisecore, fastcore, punk rock (etc), and by the bands included it would seem like old mate certainly has a bit of taste, because this mixtape includes the likes of  4 Dead, Suffer, Deathcage, White Male Dumbinance, Internal Rot, Black Bong, IDYLLS, Taipan and whole lot more!

Press release, tracklisting and download link to follow.

Australian punk is in a reasonably healthy state at the moment and I suppose the proof is in the following collection of music. I wouldn’t say that this is a definitive example of every band in this country currently, but I like to believe that this is a reasonably accurate example of the greater scenes diversity and strength. Though not every band I wanted involved is included here (some didn’t get back to me, some were just unreachable, and some I’ve purposely omitted), I did go to the trouble to compile a pretty eclectic and mixed bill. On offer here there’s at least one band from every major capital, as well as many of the smaller scenes in between. Australian hardcore is a very mixed pot by nature; on this mix tape we’ve got everything from straight up hardcore and shitty punk, right through to noisecore, metallic hardcore, to grindcore, doom and heaps in between. I’m happy with the outcome, and I hope this does well to explain what we’re about down here. We’re a little different.

July 30: Slaughterfest IV featuring Fuck I’m Dead, Looking Glass, Mother Mars, Agonhymn and loads more!

Posted by Lachlan

Grindhead Records and 666 Entertainment present Slaughterfest IVFor me, annual underground stoner, doom, grind and metal festivals like Grindhead Records' Slaughterfest, 666 Entertainment's Doomsday and Little Bird Agency's Devil's Kitchen are often sure-fire shortlisters for the best gigs of the year. The promoters of each of those festivals usually have quite a knack for producing a smooth-running, well thought-out and well-promoted festival with just the right amount of big interstate names and variation of styles.

This years Slaughterfest - the 4th edition since the festivals inception back in 2007 - is certainly no exception. Infact, I honestly cannot remember a more impressive and varied line-up - nor a show I was more excited about. The value for money (15 bands for $20) is certainly nothing to scoff at.

Grindhead Records and 666 Entertainment have teamed up to bring us an incredible day, balanced out with a nice mix of grind, stoner, sludge, metal, crust, punk, hardcore and doom. If I can give you one piece of advice it would be to GET THERE EARLY. My gut feeling is this one is certainly going to sell out (you should be going out of your way to catch Fat Guy Wears Mystic Wolf Shirt anyway, they fucking RULE).

Without further ado, here is the line-up for Slaughterfest IV:

Slaughterfest IV
Saturday July 30 - The Sandringham Hotel
Entry $20, doors at midday.

- Fuck I'm Dead (VIC)
- Looking Glass (ACT)
- Roadside Burial
- Summonus
- Mother Eel
- Deathcage
- Mother Mars
- Ether Rag
- Red Bee
- Agonhymn (VIC)
- Burial Chamber
- Arrowhead
- Rock n Roll Weapon
- Fat Guy Wears Mystic Wolf Shirt
- VAN

Facebook event: http://on.fb.me/lAZFA1

Loads of merch will be on sale from Grindhead Records and bands playing the gig. The first 100 payers will be given a FREE Slaughterfest IV CD which will feature tracks from each band on this years line up. Get in early so you don't miss out!

See you there!

Sydney weekend gig guide; Ebolie, Fuck Oath, Kill A Celebrity, New Blood, The Corps and more

Posted by Lachlan

Shaneo of Fuck OathThis seems to be the weekend for Grindhead Records CD launches. Sydney beercore cunts Fuck Oath are launching their new album at The Lansdowne on Friday with a bunch of jerks and Kill A Celebrity and New Blood are launching their new releases at The Bald Faced Stag this Saturday with a bunch of jerks.

Friday night Fuck Oath are up first at a free gig at The Lansdowne Hotel. They are joined by Deathcage, A.V.O. and The Corps. How can you go wrong with a free gig, a good feed and a decent selection of James Squire beers? That kicks off at 8pm.

Saturday night Ebolie return to the stage after a 6 months hiatus - only to go back into a hiatus since their guitarist apparently needs knee surgery. Kill A Celebrity are launching their split with Krupskaya. They will be flogging off these splits for $5 and merch for $10. New Blood are also launching their new album. Also playing are Nobody Knew They Were Robots and Sound the Mute. Entry is $10 and that kicks off at 7:30pm.

That's two decent gigs to pre-occupy yourselves with. Enjoy.

TONIGHT: Summonus CD launch with Looking Glass or Summer Slaughter

Posted by Lachlan

Looking GlassThere are actually three interesting shows going down tonight in Sydney. First up, those lovable scamps over at Soundworks Touring have the Summer Slaughter tour (in Autumn) going on at the Manning Bar with Necrophagist, Dying Fetus, Aborted and The Faceless.

Then Sydney stoner/doom outfit Summonus are holding their EP launch at the Sandringham Hotel in Newtown. Joining them is the fucking amazing stoner rock group Looking Glass (ACT), the inimintable dual bass groove of Boonhorse (ACT) who you might recognise as their past incarnation LOG, and last of all the grim Sydney doomers Fattura Della Morte. That's definitely where I'll be.

Last of all, if punk is more you thing you've got the 'Maggotsville Crew' of Deathcage, Repo Man and Taipan playing up at the Lansdowne Hotel. Those bands really seem to play twice a week at times.

Tonight: Deathcage & Ebolie at the Agincourt Hotel

Posted by Lachlan

DeathcageThis Thursday night the mighty Deathcage will be tearing up the hangout of angsty teenagers everywhere - The Agincourt Hotel - as part of The Underground Sessions.

- Deathcage
- Ebolie
- Taipan
- Summonus

Ebolie are filling in for Black Elvis to round out the line up at the last minute, and I'm very glad we were contacted to play alongside Deathcage and our mates Summonus. Rock down if you can for this solid line up and cop an ear full of blasting hardcore sludge stoner doom grind.
