with The Faceless, Putrid Pile, Whoretopsy & Unravel
Since 2001, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER have created a musical brute that embraces all the finest qualities of melodic death metal yet does not shackle them, giving them room to constantly evolve and grow. While crushingly violent, the latest album Abysmal is certainly a long way from being a two-dimensional blast-fest. THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER have inflicted a cavalcade of riffs to the table, upping the stakes in technicality, melody, and sheer blunt force trauma, letting intoxicating flavours of black metal and NWOBHM creep into the vicious assault. An Australian firestorm is imminent!
THE FACELESS have carved their opaque path by daring to be different and composing intricate and unique sharp sounding gems. Focusing on mixing fast, aggressive riffs, high-speed blast beats and double bass, with heavy, death metal style vocals, tasty guitar melodies, beautiful solos, eerie clean vocals, and creatively-structured drumming. They have made a name for themselves as a critically acclaimed “musician’s band.”
PUTRID PILE is an intense, sick and twisted guttural, death metal machine that crushes the senses and grinds your eardrums to a pulp. Shaun Lacanne has one purpose - to quench your thirst for brutality with nonstop aggressive face-pounding grind and ultra slam hooks.
WHORETOPSY… sick, brutal, disgusting, hilarious slamming Australian brutal death metal.
Barbarically heavy in sound, meticulously tight on the stage, Whoretopsy’s unique spin on slamming death metal is sure to have audiences banging their heads, laughing somewhat guiltily or fleeing with fear. Or perhaps all of the above.
Crawling from the gutters of Perth, UNRAVEL's old school sledge hammer approach to Death Metal / Hardcore Punk / Grindcore / Crossover, is smacking the piss out punters everywhere they execute their raw and abrasive throngs.
