    Traditional thrash metal, similar to Overkill.

    Ah thanks Anwar!

    On another note, I see that Whiplash Festival is now free. Does anyone know anything about that? It seems bizarre. I didn't actually know about the event at all before a few mins ago, but I'm just curious.

    Just heard from a member of Psynomenous that it's free in Canberra tomorrow (at the Basement).
    Don't really know much about it myself. Just that it was meant to have Voyager headlining with Mnemic or something.

    The word I heard was that "all costs are covered". Seems an odd move, but hey, all the better for those that can get in for free I guess

    Apparently the $20 is to cover costs of the soundguy and the bands only.

    All sounds really fucked up.

    It's bizarre that it could occur. How can a charged gig suddenly become free (unless you get some massive headliner pulling out, like when Ronaldo didn't come over for the Brazil tour a few years back)? I don't know how they think they can cover costs.

    The very short and overly simple version of the story is the promoter apparently royally fucked everything up, the bands mutinied and literally kicked him off the tour and changed the rules so that the international headliner didn't get burnt. I'm sure others will come along and explain this one a bit better than I did but that's the gist of it from what I've been told.

    Black Sabbath - the band credited with creating heavy metal and one of the most influential bands of all time - today announced their widely rumored and highly anticipated reunion for their first Australian shows in nearly 40 years.

    Original band members – the Prince of Darkness himself: Ozzy Osbourne, bassist Geezer Butler and guitarist Tony Iommi will make a thunderous return to Australia in April 2013 for arena shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, in their first Aussie shows since 1974.

    There are some big tours coming up! Have any other tours been announced lately? Keep posting them, for this thread is usually where I find out about new announcements.
