    SONIC FORGE FESTIVAL


    A CHARITY EVENT FOR ‘THE CENTER OF HOPE’, HAITI


    SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4
    @ THE ESPLANADE HOTEL, MELBOURNE


    A true multi-stage, all day metal festival is something that Melbourne has been lacking for quite a few years. No longer! SONIC FORGE FESTIVAL, featuring 32 of the best metal bands the Australasian metal scene has to offer, will take place on December 4 at the Esplanade Hotel, run over 3 stages, and provide metal fans with 12 hours of endless metal of the highest quality! Whether you like your metal death, melodic, black, prog, grind, math, tech, core or other, there is something for everyone and it’s all for only $15!

    In addition to supporting and promoting the many great metal bands this country has to offer, this event is also strongly centered around raising money for ‘The Center of Hope’, an orphanage in HAITI. Many of us here in Australia were overwhelmed at the destruction wrought upon this country when an earthquake on January 24 of this year resulted in the deaths of more than 230,000 people, injuries to more than 300,000 & 1 million more left homeless. This tragic event resulted in thousand’s of children being orphaned, and in the process worsened a problem that already existed, in what is one of the world’s poorest countries. Whilst much money has already been raised for general disaster relief in Haiti, this event focuses on trying to help a particular orphanage ‘The Center of Hope’, which has just opened its doors for the first time in recent weeks. So in buying a ticket to this event you not only get to witness the biggest local metal festival held in Melbourne for quite some time, you will also be directly helping these orphaned children in Haiti & making a difference to their lives.

    From memory first band had 1/2 hour, second band 45 mins.

    Probably 15 minutes between sets, you do the maths.

    KYUSS Australian tour

    "John Garcia, Brant Bjork and Nick Oliveri are reuniting Kyuss and are set to unleash their desert rock fury across Australia in 2011.

    The legend that has become KYUSS was formed in 1989. In October 1995, just three months after releasing what was arguably their breakthrough album …’And The Circus Leaves Town’, Kyuss broke up. The band has been on an indefinite hiatus ever since, and has gone on to reach legendary status - influencing thousands of rock bands all over the world.

    Last year Garcia toured Europe under the pseudo name “Garcia Plays Kyuss”. He planned a one-time only tour to play his favorite KYUSS songs live. Mission accomplished.

    But Garcia was wrong, dead wrong. The demand appeared to be much bigger than he originally thought. People loving KYUSS were not your average fans, they were truly apostles! No matter what city or town the band hit, how small the clubs or how big the festivals were, sheer madhouses’ at every show ensued.

    During the Hellfest Festival in France, Nick and Brant spontaneously joined John on stage and they felt something they hadn’t felt in over 20 years. It was impossible to explain the feeling but the adrenaline rush they all shared was obvious.

    It was time to mirror that feeling once again by hooking up in the desert and jamming out. Within a few hours all three had decided to get that KYUSS legacy where it really belongs……..live, and on stage, played straight to the people, for the people, who had never got a chance to see the real deal back in the day. They are coming to Australia in May 2011 to fuck shit up and fuck you up. Consider the rest history."

    KYUSS LIVES!

    Just wanted to say that I saw Ted Poley from Danger Danger on Wednesday night and had an absolute ball. All the classics from self-titled and Screw It! Such a fun night with awesome old-school songs. Small crowd at the Corner Hotel but it didn't diminish the enthusiasm. Shame more weren't there to see it.

    I was all set to go but had to work and then interview Dani Filth straight after work. I'm kicking myself I didn't get to go.

    Sure am, Bucko. I'm doing it with someone else, but he hasn't e-mailed me back so I'm going to just go ahead with it. No point waiting around.

    Haha! I know. Shoot me now. :p

    I couldn't have gone due to work which sucks balls. :( I really wanted to see Ted Poley, so I just decided to interview Danny as I was home by 10pm.

    So little comment on the Kyuss tour? Fark me, what an attack of collective gayness.

    Awesome news! Homme's not touring with them, but who needs him anyway?

    For a gig that goes on sale in 2 weeks there is no information about them on any of the links provided, anyone know or can make an educated guess as to how much the tickets will be?

    Small crowd for the Sydney show too, but Ted was great!

    Great night for fans of melodic hard rock and keys!
