Candlemass will be out here for Dark Mofo
Sweden's doom metal masters will join us for their first ever performance in Australia.
Sunday 16 June, 11–12pm (doors 10.30pm)
Damn, would love to see Candlemass but the effort to make it to that festival is too much. I have to move all my crap at about that time and then I have a flight to Melbourne on the 27th to see Girlschool etc.
After the dicktease last time they were supposed to tour here... I dunno. Still sore about that.
That being said, it'd be an epic(us) gig
Also, only an hour?! Wow.
For two exclusive Australian dates only, classic UK Death Metal institution Bloodbath will annihilate Sydney and Melbourne audiences as they headline the very first Southern Slaughter Festival. Brought to you by Overdrive Touring, Southern Slaughter features one of 2019’s most brutal line-ups. Bloodbath ride the wave of gore flowing from their latest album ‘The Arrow of Satan is Drawn,’ and will bring all their renewed passion and vigour Down Under.
Bloodbath features “Old Nick” Holmes (Paradise Lost) on vocals, with a return to his guttural roots; Anders “Blakkheim” Neistrom (Katatonia) on guitar, along with Katatonia frontman Jonas “Lord Seth” Renske on bass and backing vocals; Martin “Axe” Axenrot of Progressive Death powerhouse Opeth on drums; and the newest blood in the mix, Joakim Karlsson on guitars.
Along with this Australian first, both dates will feature direct support from the brutalising Thrash Metal of In Malice's Wake, who will be dredging up some face-melting new tunes from their upcoming release!
Additional Sydney exclusive acts will include Rise of Avernus, Anno Domini, IMMORIUM, Claret Ash & Bastardizer, while Melbourne will exclusively play host to Mason Official, Monoliyth, Cryptic Abyss, Scaphis & Blackhelm.
Overdrive Touring is more than stoked to bring these two massive line-ups to the Manning Bar, Sydney on Saturday 14 September, and Max Watt’s, Melbourne on Sunday 15 September! We are pleased to also offer limited VIP upgrades via Eventbrite, which will include a meet and greet with Bloodbath themselves!

Sunday, September 15th - Southern Slaughter 2019 feat. Bloodbath (UK) - Melbourne
THE DAMNED ARE COMING TO AUSTRALIA!
The Damned are the greatest surviving British punk band, bar none, still firing on all cylinders and breaking all the rules. This most spiritually chaotic of all punk groups have never been away, never surrendered their ideals, always forged onwards and when Lemmy of Motörhead famously referred to them as “the only real punk band” you know they are the real deal.
On sale Thursday 18th April at 9am
Thursday 22 August – The Factory Theatre, Sydney 18+
Friday 23 August – The Triffid, Brisbane 18+
Saturday 24 August – The Croxton Bandroom, Melbourne 18+
The cast for Avantasia Australian Tour. I was trying to find out who is involved, and figured I might copy + paste here. Sorry if this is spam.
As someone who has never followed them, are there any albums / songs I should start with to help decide if I want to go? I'm already considering going just to see Tate / Jorn both of whom I'm familiar with and never seen before. Cheers.

Albums? As far as my favourite albums start-to-finish I enjoy their first (Metal Opera Part 1) and their latest (Moonglow). I reckon they are the most complete albums. The others all have some truly epic songs, but always a couple of 'meh' songs.
Individual songs worth checking out:
Mystery of a Blood Red Rose
Lost in Space
The Raven Child
I reckon if you don't dig what you hear after listening to that it's probably not worth your time (remembering its gonna be a 3 hour show!).
But, I reckon you will like what you hear. If you like power metal, it's hard not to like Avantasia.
Some band called Lerd or Lard or something are doing a release show. Not sure if they are a 'big' local band so please feel free to remove this post if its inappropriate.
Not sure if serious, but funny nonetheless
Holy shit, Darker Half... that's an ancient name :O
Not too sure about this Lorde band though?
LERRRDDD.... Yeah, I think I've heard of those guys. They play Dungeon covers or something don't they?
Dungeon? Sounds like some airy-fairy 90's side project!
In western countries it was grunge. In Europe it was pure MIGHTY BROTHERS OF STEEL RAINBOW UNICORNS AND CASTLES TRUE ELF MAGIC ETERNAL SWORD METAL!!!!!!1!!
(Sorry, got some LMP down my shirt)
I love that Leared band!
