    Yeh i dont mind Nazxul, other than that not much
    i also dont mind the hot lies - an Adelaide band - not really metal, more punk/rock, they actually supported mellincolin when they came here

    Went to Enter Twilight's album launch last night. DEFINITELY a band worth checkin out, especially if ya like the epic/gothic female fronted prog/power stuff like Nightwish/Lacuna Coil/Within Temptation/Without Face.

    I've heard of Stargazer, but haven't heard their stuff.

    Another top Aussie band is Alarum. Always excellent live.

    Psycroptic are playing in Melbourne this weekend. Not sure that I'll make it....

    I'd like to see Pathogen again. They impressed me at Bodom.
