Diploid Mini-Tour

Posted by mothereel



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.

All Are Equal In Death Mini-Tour: Cruciform, Brazen Bull (Qld) & Mother Eel

All Are Equal In Death Mini-Tour

All Are Equal In Death Mini-Tour

Uniting under their respective aspects of Extreme Metal, 3 hideously misguided bands are hitting the road and damaging audiences over 1 weekend.  Returning from Queensland are the ever jarring and schizophrenic Brazen Bull, to be offset by reformed 90s doom legends Cruciform and Blue Mountains based dissonant oddities Mother Eel.  The mini-tour will see all 3 bands stop off at Wollongong, Sydney and Ourimbah, on the Central Coast.  There they will be complimented by locals: Hawkmoth, Nobody Knew They Were Robots, Corotted, Alf Stewart & Postal.

Having pioneered the Australian Death/Doom style in the early 90s only to break up before their time, Cruciform have reformed and are returning to the live scene after way too long.
Playing their last series of shows with the current line-up, Queensland’s technical Death Grinders Brazen Bull return to NSW to show off their bass player Adam before he calls it a day .
Boasting new songs and merch, Avant-garde Death Metallers, Mother Eel will be exhibiting a re-arranged line-up.  They are now a fresh 4 piece but just as cacophonous, caustic and discordant.

Kicking off the tour will see the trio joined at Dicey Riley’s Hotel in Wollongong on the 22nd of March by Sludge negotiators Hawkmoth and Math worshipping Nobody Knew They Were Robots (NKTWR).  The show then moves into Sydney on the 23rd of March, where old school Death Metallers Corotted open up the night at The Agincourt Hotel.  The tour draws to a close on the 24th of March at an All Ages extravaganza in Ourimbah on the Central Coast.  Rounding out is this All Ages Show at Sohier Park Community Hall are NKTWR, Alf Stewart and Postal, who have recently released a split with Office Jerks.  Sunday is strictly a no drug or alcohol allowed event.
