    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. :cool:

    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 :D

    Also, only an hour?! Wow.

    TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT!

    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!

    DATES
    Saturday, September 14th - Southern Slaughter 2019 feat. Bloodbath (UK) - Sydney
    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.

    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.

    TOBIAS SAMMET - Lead vocals (Edguy, Avantasia)
    BOB CATLEY - Lead vocals (Magnum)
    ERIC MARTIN - Lead vocals (Mr. Big)
    GEOFF TATE - Lead vocals (ex-Queensryche, Operation: Mindcrime)
    JORN LANDE - Lead vocals (ex-Masterplan, JORN)
    RONNIE ATKINS - Lead vocals (Pretty Maids)
    HERBIE LANGHANS - Backing vocals / Lead vocals (Sinbreed)
    ADRIENNE COWAN - Backing vocals / Lead vocals (Seven Spires, Winds of Plague)
    SASCHA PAETH - Guitars (Producer for Avantasia, Edguy, Angra, Shaaman, Rhapsody of Fire, Kamelot, After Forever and Epica)
    OLLI HARTMANN - Guitars (At Vance, Hartmann)
    MIRO RODENBERG - Keyboards (Producer for Angra, Shaaman, Luca Turilli, Rhapsody of Fire, Kamelot and Heavens Gate)
    ANDRE NEYGENFIND - Bass (Avantasia)
    FELIX BOHNKE - Drums (Edguy)

    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:
    Avantasia
    Mystery of a Blood Red Rose
    Lost in Space
    Lavender
    The Raven Child
    Moonglow

    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.

    Dungeon? Sounds like some airy-fairy 90's side project!
