    Another one for the lovers of slow, heavy atmospheric stuff and another great local band- Illimitable Dolor - Leaden Light. I just got both their releases on vinyl in the mail yesterday, well worth acquiring in your format of choice:

    Just heard about this - an Aussie camp-out muti-day festival out the back of Alice.
    I don't know any of the bands but if it takes off it would be a dream come true for fans of Wacken, Hellfest, etc.

    Imo Download/Soundwave missed a trick by not doing something like this.
    Touring bands between cities is a giant waste of money that could be put into the festival itself and make it a world class event.

    Plonk it out on a farm near Canberra somewhere, make it a world class 2.5 day event and people would come from far and wide.

    Tool debut two new songs today. Crappy audio with people talking through it. Only listened to portion of the songs as I am saving myself for a full album/single release.

    I only know 2 bands on the bill (Frankenbok and Cosmic Psychos). Love the concept though, hope it grows into something really big.

    Saying they’ll release the album on August 30th. I won’t believe it til I’m physically listening to it, these guys love purposely pissing off their fans.

    I was very close to flying over to Brisbane to go to this show and watch some footy, but didn't end up pulling the trigger as I saw NeO the last time they were in Perth. I would be interested to hear how it goes.

    I've seen NeO a whole bunch of times, was a big fan of their first 2 albums.

    Mainly going this time for Allegaeon. But all 5 bands on the lineup are quality, should be a great night

    Haha, that was my exact same reason for almost going (seeing Allegaeon, but interested in the others) and then not going (seen NeO three times already).

    The Tour isn't coming across to Perth which sucks so will be checking out Eluveitie next Sunday instead

    Memoriam (ex-Boltthrower and Benediction members) just released their third album in as many years. And it’s a total riff-fest, check it out if you like later Boltthrower type stuff:

    I’m looking forward to cradle. Apparently the venue they are playing in Brisbane is shit though.

    They're phenomenal. Their Opera House show was something I don't think I'll ever see topped.
