Dark Horse take on Japan

Posted by mothereel
Missed opportunity

It should have been a horse vs giant being

I'm extremely envious.  Those boys have managed to pull off an amazing little tour over in one of my favourite countries, Japan.  It's not right that I am though, neither of my bands have put in much effort to do anything but yeah....  How good is it to be human!

Anyway, here's the details of their first show and it's a doozey!  Bands from all over are coming together for this bit of messy noise.

Dick jokes and Jap jokes *sigh*

Up there in the Jap's eye!   An all international cast!

Then there's the big one, the massive deal, probably one of their greatest gigs to date... The Japanese Obscene Extreme!

See if you get that one!

The way it all goes down.

So many great bands, so many forms of freak music, Obscene always rules!!  We wish you well young Australian men!

You can purchase many Dark Horse things from the Grindhead Records website such as their album Sick of the Living/High on Death, the split with Repulsion-esque Black Jesus, or the other split with Indonesian Gore Grinders Badak Singa.

You also have the choice of going to their bandcamp.

If you've maybe been looking at too much black metal or pop punk, maybe you've missed this...  If so, I'm glad, means more tickets for real fans, right?

AUSTRALIAN AND NEW ZEALAND DEATHCRUSHER TOUR

Don't think, buy tickets now!!

Just Awesome!

Two of the most influential and legendary acts in the history of the grindcore and death metal genres, NAPALM DEATH and CARCASS, join forces in a pairing that has not been seen for decades, to create the ultimate death metal fans dream package in DEATHCRUSHER.

 

And I think Extortion rule!  Sick is one of the greatest albums by an Australian band.  Their live show is generally fantastic.

Diploid Mini-Tour

Posted by mothereel

DiploidSm

 

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.
