SLOW GRIND FEVER #22
Slow Grind Fever returns to it’s spiritual home above The Tote for more slow swaying, low dipping, neck kissing and all that good stuff. We play the slowest, spookiest, sweetest, swinginest old records we can find, and people dance real slow in a haze of smoke and dim red lights. It’s a good time. This month our man Mohair Slim returns from his trip to the U.S. and Jamaica with a suitcase full of all things slow and moody for your grinding pleasure. And mine too…

TRENCH SISTERS
+ Bloodrule + Contaminated (first show) + Faceless Burial (first show)

TRENCH SISTERS inexplicably got back together despite no one missing them or their haphazard brand of grinding metallic hardcore blended with the ‘comedy’ stylings of Doug ‘Oscar Wilde’ Susman, but they’re playing this show and you should come down, if for nothing other than to heckle. Joining in are BLOOD RULE, who mix blasts and beatdowns in equal measure. Handsome cunts playing heavy heavy shit.

Two new death metal bands from Melbourne are making their first live appearances here: CONTAMINATED released a monstrous demo as a solo project and have now expanded with a lineup consisting of jerk-offs. Heavy and filthy old school doomy death metal. FACELESS BURIAL plays chunky and choppy grinding death metal. Folks from White Walls, Backwards Zombie and Max from Agents Of Abhorrence is finally back to blasting behind the kit!

Norma Jean & Vanna Tour

Filed under: metal music, Tours — site admin @ 4:32 pm

Hardcore fans rejoice!!
The Mighty NORMA JEAN are returning to our shores for the first time in over 5 years bringing along with them Boston’s finest hardcore purveyors VANNA and Newcastle’s very own SAFE HANDS.
NORMA JEAN has continuously pushed the boundaries of heavy music releasing a slew of seminal albums including ‘O God, The Aftermath,’ and ‘The Anti Mother’ cementing them at the forefront of the metal world. This trend continued with the release of their 5th full length ‘Meridional’ with absolutepunk calling it their “magnum opus, that will be matched by very few within the genre.”

Renowned across the globe for their chaotic and pummeling live shows NORMA JEAN incites rabid fanfare leaving those in attendance in awe and admiration of their performances.
NORMA JEAN are currently holed up in the studio with producer Joshua Barber working on their much anticipated as yet untitled 6th full length due out in 2013. Australian fans will be some of the first in the world to hear new material.
Boston heavyweights VANNA will unleash their ferocious live show on Australian audiences for the first time this May. Their latest full length ‘And They Came Baring Bones’ takes the listener on an unpredictable path filled with dark and angry emotions, but at the end you realise there is a light of self-discovery.
