Festering Drippage EP Launch

Posted by mothereel

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.

Festering Drippage EP Launch

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

 The Mung are finally making it up to Sydney!  To welcome them, show them around and in general, abuse their ears: a total of 12 bands showcasing a fairly diverse mix of the extreme genres has been put together and it's going to be all parties, drugs and fecal matter.
Highlights of the event are of course The Mung, who are bringing up their grindcore guts from Victoria, as are Whoretopsy, although their guts look more death metally.  Joining them from Canberra are tech death titans, Tortured.  Mother Eel is also playing our last Sydney show before we head to Canberra the weekend after (there'll be more on that later in the week or next week), we are also pleased to announce that our original drummer, Blather McQueen is in the throne again as a once off (for now).

Set times are loosely as follows:
The Mung 11:15-12am
Tortured 10-11pm

Hellitself 7:30-8:30pm

Posted by Lachlan

Germany's goregrind legends Cock and Ball TortureAbsolutely huge news for gore/grind fiends. German gore legends Cock and Ball Torture are heading down under in January 2013!

For that you can thank  Southern Extremeties Productions in association with Grindhead Records and Shananigans Entertainment.

Here's the press release:

A progenitor of pitch-shifted, porn influenced goregrind, and one of the most influential groups within the style, Germany's Cock and Ball Torture make their first ever trip "Down Under" at the very start of 2013.

After 3 full lengths and several EPs and splits, the group is known and loved worldwide for their catchy, grooving, down-tuned, rancid horegrind, and have a strong and supportive worldwide fan base on the back of their impressive discography and excellent live performances.

After 15 years together, and countless successful shows and tours, the lurid lads decided it was finally time to make a trip to the "Land Down Under", and give Australia a taste of the aural filth they've been dishing up for 1 and a 1/2 decades.

Central West Death Fest

Central West Death Fest

 This weekend Orange is going to experience something truly unique.  An all ages Death/Grind/Doom/Hardcore one-day festival.  Organised by Hill Billy Josh who claims that it will run annually, it has a diverse bunch of bands and is super cheap!  The whole thing is going to be filmed and released on DVD.

Headlined by Mother Eel, Sydney's oldest grind based and most intense and disturbing live band with supports from Orange's own Infested Entrails, Blue Mountain's Festering Drippage (hot off the support slot for Macabre - and just announced support for Cock & Ball Torture) and Sydney's Lower Back Problems.  The bill is rounded out by locals Dead-Life, Newcastle's Empirical, other locals Near Life Experience and Once Within Reach.

It'll be more fun than recreating scenes from The Hills Have Eyes or Wolfcreek!
