Grindhead Records Presents East West DeathGrind Fest 4!
Saturday the 1st of December at The Valve Bar, Tempe.
Consistently showcasing Australia's best Death Metal and Grindcore bands over the last 3 mini fests, the line up for this year is definitely no exception.
Heading up from down south for the first time in over 6 years is the legendary Intense Hammer Rage! Now a 4 piece with the new addition of a vocalist adding to the already heavy duty tech grinding arsenal.
Co-Headlining the Event is Australian blast masters The Kill! Their infamous live set of 1 pedal metal is sure to absolutely tear your face off!
Rounding out the line up is the mind altering Odiusembowel from Victoria, the death metal merchants Laceration Mantra from Queensland, Canberra's death/grind contingent: Wretch, Throat Of Dirt & Inhuman Remnants, as well as Sydney's finest: Roadside Burial, Hell Itself, Mother Eel, New Blood, Burial Chamber, Exekute & To Engineer An Exorcist.
Doors Open 1pm. Tickets were onsale, but are now closed. You can still pay at the door.
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.

This 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.
