Inquisition

Legendary Black Metal horde INQUISITION will return to Australia for a long awaited headlining tour this August, to spread their blackened, cosmic chaos across the nation. 

Inquisition formed nearly three decades ago and morphed from a thrash band into one of the most hellish raw black metal bands this planet has ever produced.

Featuring Dagon on vocals and guitar and Incubus on drums, the cacophony of noise generated by the bands two members has roots in two musical camps. Early era thrash and primal black metal collide to produce one of the most recognised 'signature sounds of any band in their genre. 

Dark and ominous passages explode into chaos filled whirlwinds of blast beats and buzz saw riffing, enveloping the listener in a suffocating reminder of what the true spirit of black metal really is.

Inquisition draw their power from the darkest roots of human existence. The forces of cosmology, paganism, ancient cultures and Satanism have combined to build their maleficent basilica of sound.

Bloodshed Across The Empyrean Altar Beyond The Celestial Zenith is the epic title of Inquisition's forthcoming brand new album due for release on August 26 via Season Of Mist, so Australian fans will be among the first in the world to experience songs from the new opus live!

Cryptopsy

with special guests: Whoretopsy & I, Valiance

One of the most brutal, technical and dynamic bands in the world are coming to Australia this September!

Canada’s Cryptopsy will crush four cities around the nation with their unrelenting barrage of precision extreme metal. 
A band that embodies pure musical extremity, Cryptopsy needs to be experienced in the flesh to truly appreciate the blasphemic, aural assault they have been creating for the last quarter of a century.

Their Australian fans have a rare opportunity to witness such devastation first hand.

True pioneers in extreme metal; Cryptopsy push, bend and smash musical boundaries with their unique style that is distinctly their own. Their latest offering The Book Of Suffering - Tome 1 is nothing short of a musical bludgeoning. 
Completely self released and only available from the band themselves (in physical form), Cryptopsy do things on their own terms and make their own rules.

With a career reaching back to 1992, Cryptopsy ushered in a new age of extreme metal with now classic albums None So VileBlasphemy Made Flesh and Whisper Supremacy, and upped the stakes in the 2000’s with the highly praised …And Then You’ll Beg and The Unspoken King.

Joining Cryptopsy for the entire tour will be two of Melbourne’s most extreme. The brutal gore merchants Whoretopsy, and tech terrorists I, Valiance

It’s strongly suggested that fans start training now, as an evening of such extreme brutality will punish those whose endurance levels are not up for the challenge!

Cryptopsy

One of the founding bands of extreme music are coming to invade Australia this September!

Immolation have been delivering some of the most unique, and creatively dark, death metal the underground has witnessed for over 25 years. Spewing forth unrelenting, chaotic and twisted sonics while continuing to push the limits of a genre they helped define. 

Bursting onto the metal scene in 1986, Immolation went on to lead the charge of first wave of US Death Metal. Alongside their peers Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, Deicide & Obituary they created a scene unlike any other. 

Spawning classic albums Dawn Of Possession (1991), and Here In After (1996) early in their career they paved their way down an ever evolving path of uncompromising musical devastation!
Their uniquely original take on Death Metal is instantly recognisable; dark, ominous, complex and chaotic. Each release has seen Immolation continue to dive deeper and deeper into the abyss, pulling the listener in with them. Refining their sound into a honed weapon of sonic destruction and creating some of the most adventurous death metal ever made!

With their latest release, Kingdom Of Conspiracy, Immolation are stronger than ever! The album is the fastest, most menacing and grim offering the band have ever released! A soundtrack that mirrors the current state of our world more than we choose to admit or accept. 

Witnessing Immolation live will go beyond all your expectations and will leave you crumbled on the ground in a pile of ash,...thanking the band for every minute along the way that led you there!

Tour Dates
Thursday, September 22: Perth - The Rosemount Hotel 
Friday, September 23: Melbourne: Max Watts 
Saturday September 24: Sydney - The Manning Bar 
Sunday September 25: Brisbane - Crowbar

Few bands channel the true spirit of Metal; Dangerous, Rebellious, Confronting, Unrelenting. Destroyer 666 not only embody this spirit, they live, breath and bleed it. This November will see them return home to their leaders birthplace to spread Wildfire.

Destroyer 666 have no need to prove anything. Unleashing five studio albums in their 20 plus year career they have cemented their reputation within the metal community and their latest missive, the recently released, Wildfire (2016 Season Of Mist) is another fist straight to your face. They are the pure essence of heavy fucking metal.

Lead from the front by the infamous KK Warslut, there is no ‘core’, no ‘post’ and no bullshit when it comes to D666. Old school without clinging to nostalgia, they have nothing in common with a bunch of kids trying to emulate the 80’s via some retro fashion and a cool patch jacket. Immune to fads, they have remained the same since the golden age of heavy music and have never wavered.

Wolves among sheep, following no trends, musical or otherwise; commanding respect wherever they venture, Destroyer 666 deliver metal as its best. Powerful, gritty and intelligent arranged with groove that can move mountains.

Witness a night of musical integrity few can claim to deliver. Destroyer 666 will grab you by the neck, wring it till it hurts and force on you a hellish emotional journey of blackened madness! No compromise, no quarter, prepare yourself!

Friday, Nov 4: Brisbane - Crowbar
Saturday, Nov 5: Sydney - Manning Bar
Sunday, Nov 6: Canberra - The Basement
Friday, Nov 11: Melbourne: Max Watts
