Posted by mothereel

Every Year Death Grinds!

Another year, it's here!  Christmas for those into extreme underground local talent has arrived.  Bubsy, who plays Santa in this metaphor, has done it again, or maybe he's gone done better than last year!  What a line-up!!

Showcasing a bunch of fools with instruments from a wide variety of towns and villages, this year's East West has bands from South Australia, the mightiest contribution from Victoria, Tasmania is showing up and even a few bois from the A.C.T are coming around to make some noise.

Split over 2 days/nights, you'll have to plan ahead for this one.  Buying entry to both shows gets you a healthy discount.

Blasterpieces represent!

It's here!  Christmas for those into extreme underground local talent has arrived.  Bubsy, who plays Santa in this metaphor, has done it again, or maybe he's gone done better than last year!  What a line-up!!

Showcasing a bunch of fools with instruments from a wide variety of towns and villages, this year's East West has bands from South Australia, a mighty contingent from Victoria, Queensland is represented and even a few bois from the A.C.T are coming around to make some noise.

Sydney's darlings, Ether Rag, are also launching their highly anticipated 7" so make sure you save a handful of post-beer coins to exchange for that sexy vinyl.  Grindhead Records will, of course, also have their distro with a fine selection of extreme music from around the world with maybe even a few choices being available for under $5!

I'm also playing, this time I'm filling the bass and vocals for those handsome Backpacker boys.  That should be interesting... hopefully.

Destroy The Valve Bar

 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
Red Bee 8:45-9:45pm
Hellitself 7:30-8:30pm
Whoretopsy 6:45-7:15pm
Mother Eel 6-6:30pm
Infested Entrails 5:15-5:45pm
Festering Drippage 4:30-5pm

Cock and Ball Torture Australian tour January 2013!

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.

So this is it, the tour so many have wanted to see: Cock and Ball Torture - Bulldozing Australia 2013.
