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.

Keep up to date with set times and other announcements by going to the facebook event page.

Wretch: A Video with quite a bit of Hatred

Posted by mothereel

Wretch have been busy working on their second album "Tirades", in order to get you to splutter your morning coffee in a rush to buy it, they've released this NSFW video.  The video to the song titled, "A Fucktonne of Hate", is not that risky, I wouldn't fire you for watching it, just some morally horrid snippets.  Pretty slick production!


Tirades will be released on November 13, 2015.

Keep in the loop:

Wretch: Because You’re Worthless.

Posted by mothereel

I think you're lovely.


The fat guys from Canberra (not the politicians) brought this out a month or two ago.  You may have even donated some money towards it, as we asked you too.  If you did.  Good job.  You make me happy.  I hope this music makes you happy.



You can go get it now from their bandcamp page:
You can also read a review here: metalasfuck
Go to their facebook to give them strong words and selfies:


I'm just going to ad-lib this:
Wretch were formed around 2011 as an interpretive dance troupe.  They loved many bright and fanciful things and had many positive experiences playing with each other and with other bands of many of styles of mostly metal based musax.  Not all of them are fat but they are all currently claiming to be in the area of Canberra.  They self released a demo in 2012 and now they offer you this - Because You're Worthless.


Wretch want you to be a part of their next CD

Wretch, all sun glasses, no smiles

Give them your money!


Those Canberran's are looking to release a new album.   They want to try something new.  It would be nice if you, and your pals, could contribute some dollars towards their process.  It can immortalise you, not only to the band, but you could even get your name in the Thank You section, which you could show all those kids who still continue to make fun of you, your taste in music and your lack of a life.  Go here now to donate. 
Read what Wretch had to say:

For as low as $10 you can pre-purchase a digital download of the album (with digital artwork and all the trimmings); $20 gets you a CD, $35 is a (new design) t-shirt and CD; and $60 and over wins you immortality through inclusion in the thanks list in the album art.

All you need is an email address. You can pay with PayPal or direct debit. Any help will be greatly appreciated, and you can guarantee that we'll remember your help and do what we can to support your next project and keep the live music scene interesting.


Wretch 'Because You're Worthless' Album Artwork
Wretch is four-piece grind/death/thrash/METAL!!! band based in Canberra. Since forming in 2011, Wretch has gone from strength to strength. Their live assault has been refined by frequent performances, including a handful of international supports, a number of successful festivals and playing with damn near every metal, hardcore and punk band in the country.

The Senseless Violence EP ( was self-released in early 2012 and received positive critical reception.

In the same DIY spirit, they’re recording their full-length album, Because You’re Worthless, for self-release in April and are inviting you to help support the making of this new album. Think of it as being like an extreme metal arts patron, supporting a new world where the record companies and shitty middlemen have all fucked off home and the music lovers have taken over.
