    Hey everyone!

    I know we said that we wouldn't be playing live for a while, but we came upon a bit of a predicament shortly after our tour finished, and so a MASSIVE show has been organised and we are calling on our all fans to show up and help us keep Ben here in Australia long term! We love him. He's french, and he smiles lots. What more can you ask of a guy? He's also not too bad a guitarist. ;)


    Read below for full details and hope to see you there on July 31@ The Corner Hotel!

    Welkin Entertainment Presents

    FESTIVAL
    DE LA GRENOUILLE

    (Festival of the Frog)

    featuring

    EYEFEAR
    NE OBLIVISCARIS
    ALARUM
    BE’LAKOR

    THE OCULARIS INFERNUM
    IN MALICE’S WAKE
    A MILLION DEAD BIRDS LAUGHING
    PRIMORDIAL SPACE




    Date: Friday, July 31, 2009
    Venue: The Corner Hotel (57 Swan St., Richmond)
    Doors: 7pm
    Tickets: ONLY $15!



    FESTIVAL DE LA GRENOUILLE (Festival of the Frog), brings together 8 of Melbourne’s leading metal bands, for an amazing night of metal across 2 stages!

    As many already know, Ne Obliviscaris acquired an amazing new lead guitarist, Benjamin Baret, from France in August, 2008. With his current visa expiring this August, Benjamin’s main hope of staying in Australia long term is a ‘Distinguished Talent’ visa that would extend his stay in Australia at least another 4 years. The only catch, is that it costs more money to apply than he or the band has, (typical broke metal musicians… :p) and so this amazing line-up has been put together to raise the money for Benjamin’s visa, to help keep him in Australia long term; to help keep a frog an Aussie!

    As well as the amazing line-up of Eyefear, Ne Obliviscaris, Alarum, Be’lakor, The Ocularis Infernum, In Malice’s Wake and A Million Dead Birds Laughing, Festival De La Grenouille also marks the live debut of an amazing new tech/death band, Primordial Space, featuring Benjamin Baret (guitar) and Brendan Brown (bass) from Ne Obliviscaris and brothers Miles and Glenn Krenzin (drums and guitar respectively); definitely a live debut not to be missed.

    So whether it’s to support the cause, or just to see the great bands, we hope to see you at the Corner Hotel on July 31 for the Festival De La Grenouille!

    I think the MetalObsession logo should be changed for this, so it says 'Supporting Aussie and French Metal'.
    This will be awesome!

    I'll be there. I've missed far too many gigs already, there's no way I'm missing this one. I'll sell one of my kidneys if I have to.

    Yay for more awesome gigs
    -.-'
    Also, 'We love him. He's french. He smiles lots.' is quite possibly the greatest explanation of a person ever.

    Sam will be attending this I'm sure, I'll be busy at home, watching Channel 9's family movie, or some crappy crime show. I <3 life.
