Ensiferum Australia 2019 Australian tour poster Two Paths Path to Glory Sydney Brisbane Melbourne

Ensiferum - Australia 2019!

TICKETS ON SALE NOW!!!

You  can’t talk about the true greats of folk-inspired melodic death metal  without reverent mention of ENSIFERUM, and with their recent album Two  Paths they once more affirm their place in the pantheons of the genre.  Further building upon the thrilling metallic hybrid honed across six  full-lengths, Two Paths is simultaneously the Finnish quintet’s most  epic and far-reaching collection and their most organic, which  definitely sets it apart from the pack.
 

With One Man Army standing as the band’s most accomplished effort  to-date, going into the process of following it up, the members were  able to place faith in the intuition of each other, all driven to  deliver the best record they could. For Sami Hinkka (bass/vocals),  Markus Toivonen (guitar/vocals), Petri Lindroos (vocals/guitar) and  Janne Parviainen (drums), this trust has steadily grown and strengthened  with every release.
 

With Two Paths the care and attentiveness the band invests in everything  they do shows, they maintain an enviably high standard. It is also a  record with energy to spare, practically daring the listener to resist  being caught up in its infectious liveliness. Whether it’s the  breakneck, ultra-catchy thrashings of “For Those About To Fight For  Metal” or “King Of Storms”, the crunchy stomp of “I Will Never Kneel” or  the surging thunder of the title track, they never fail to grip, and  when they slow things down – as on the cinematic “Hail To The Victor” –  they somehow manage to sound even bigger. Likewise, the grandiose,  heroic themes that have always run through ENSIFERUM ‘s records!
 

Now it is Australia’s chance to catch the band at their absolute peak!  One of the biggest names and leaders in folk metal are on their way and  ENSIFERUM promise you a night of beer drinking, fists in the air… just  one big metal party.
 

‘’Sami Hinkka was quite the character on stage, and truly was a total  blast to watch. Intense, engaging, and actively commanding the stage, he  really pulled in fans from all over the venue.’’ METAL WANI
 

‘’Even though the Finns have been touring for years now, it is always  nice to see them give 100 percent during shows and today was no  different. All in all, a worthy night to remember.’’ – METAL EXPOSURE
 

As is typically the case, ENSIFERUM will be entering into an extensive  touring campaign in support of the record, their calendar already full  for the next year. Having accomplished so much since dropping their  self-titled debut full-length back in 2001, their appetite has not  dulled, wanting to reach more and more people with every successive  release, yet they remain characteristically grounded.

Triple Bill Kill Australian tour 2019 At the Gates The Haunted Witchery Swedish Metal

Triple Bill Kill - At the Gates + The Haunted + Witchery!

TICKETS ON SALE NOW - EXTRA SHOWS ADDED!!!

Australia are you ready? Well you better be well prepared because we have seen nothing like this before. A 3 pronged attack of darkened, deathly Swedish majesty, in the form of AT THE GATES, THE HAUNTED and WITCHERY are headed our way for a hellishly heavy Scandinavian assault for what is a possibly once in a lifetime tour.


AT THE GATES are innovators. From debut album, The Red In The Sky Is Ours, through comeback stunner, At War With Reality, the Gothenburg-based death metal act have always traversed the left-hand path on their own terms. The Swedes are keenly aware of who they are, where they come from, and how they got to where they are today. In the ‘90s, AT THE GATES spearheaded The New Wave of Swedish Death Metal. In the aughts, then-swansong album, Slaughter Of The Soul, served as a feature-rich treasure chest for a host of upstarts to plunder. When AT THE GATES returned in 2008 — a full 12 years after they disbanded —their return was celebrated and the follow-up to Slaughter Of The Soul — now placing handsomely on Top Metal Album Lists — hotly anticipated. Now, four years after At War with Reality, the Swedes recently unleashed their indomitable spirit, ceaseless ingenuity, and raw power on new album, To Drink From The Night Itself.


Launched in 1996 by guitarist Jensen, bassist Jonas Björler and drummer Adrian Erlandsson, THE HAUNTED enjoy a cult status in the metal world, boasting a diverse catalogue of material that would have left other bands digging their own grave. Whether the band's continued success is due to an open-minded fanbase, stellar musicianship, or an infallible sense of timing when it comes to releasing new material - perhaps a combination of all three - THE HAUNTED continue to be an unpredictable and beloved force to be reckoned with in spite of the curveballs thrown at their loyal followers and the line-up changes since releasing their self-titled debut in 1998. Their latest album, Strength In Numbers, is the latest testament to that claim. THE HAUNTED'S legacy of remaining diverse without diluting the sound that seeded a loyal fanbase two decades and is continuing to being in new listeners not only by its compositional class and performance prowess, but also by its relentless heaviness, the displayed atmospheric intensity and the material’s consequential imminent impact.


Over 20 years into their existence, Swedish blackened Thrash Metallers WITCHERY stay the course crafted on 2016’s praised In His Infernal Majesty’s Service album and offer a slab of 11 new deadly tracks on their newest full-length studio effort I Am Legion. Forging onwards with their recently revamped line-up they enhanced their newest nocturnal anthems with an organic, yet powerfully up-to-date sound, which deeply pleased every fan of blackened Thrash/Death. A revamped and brilliant new line up has served to open a next chapter in the history of WITCHERY and I Am Legion marks a bewitching next step forwards for these pioneers of the blackened Thrash/Heavy Metal style.


Now for a majorly special event - all 3 amazing bands on one bill! So get ready to get your Gothenburg on Australia... for 3 nights, Sweden takes over, DOWN UNDER!!!

Girlschool Venom Inc Raven Australian tour 2019 poster new wave of british heavy metal NWOBHM

Girlschool + Venom Inc + Raven - Australia 2019!

TICKETS ON SALE NOW!!!

For the first time in Australia - Girlschool & Raven! For their second time in Australia - Venom Inc! Join us for the unique opportunity to see all three bands on one mighty NWOBHM bill!


GIRLSCHOOL  are a British rock band that formed in the new wave of British heavy  metal scene in 1978, frequently associated with contemporaries Motörhead. They are the longest-running all-female rock band, still active after almost 40 years. Formed from a school band called Painted Lady, GIRLSCHOOL  enjoyed strong media exposure and commercial success in the UK in the  early 1980s with three albums of 'punk-tinged metal' and a few singles,  that placed them up there with the legends of NWOBHM


In the 1990s and 2000s, GIRLSCHOOL  focused on shows and tours and made few studio albums. During their  career they travelled the world, playing in many rock and metal  festivals and co-headlining with or supporting important hard rock and  heavy metal bands. They maintain a worldwide cult following and are an  inspiration for many female rock musicians. 3 original members, Kim McAuliffe, Enid Williams and Denise Dufort—are still in the band, with long time axe wielder Jackie Chambers on guitar.


We'll never have Motorhead again, but we can have their mates.

Join them on their triumphant return, VENOM INC!!!!!


Formed as Venom in 1979 in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. And coming to prominence towards the end of the new wave of British heavy metal, Venom's first two albums—Welcome to Hell (1981) and Black Metal  (1982)—are considered a major influence on thrash metal and extreme  metal in general. Venom's second album proved influential enough that  its title was used as the name of an extreme metal sub-genre: Black  Metal.


During the 80’s, Venom were THE extreme band, releasing more classic albums such as At War With Satan, Possessed and countless classic, live albums, such as the Assault live album series and the legendary Eine Kleine Nachtmusik Double LP and the The Seventh Date of Hell: Live At Hammersmith Odeon Video which helped launch Metallica, who were the support band for Venom’s tour.


Following Cronos’ departure from the band, Tony Dolan (The Demolition Man) from Atomkraft, stepped in filling Cronos’ big, red boots, most admirably. And recording four releases with Venom: Prime Evil (1989), Tear Your Soul Apart (1990), Temples of Ice (1991), The Waste Lands (1992).

And last but not least - FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN AUSTRALIA - RAVEN!!!!!


RAVEN are that rare thing in music true originals – cut these guys with a razor and they will BLEED true heavy metal!!!


Hailing from Newcastle Upon Tyne in North East England back in 1974 (yes – 44 YEARS ago!!!) the brothers Gallagher cut their teeth playing the pubs & clubs until solidifying their line up in 1980 with drummer Rob Hunter.   The trio went on to release three of the most influential metal albums  of the NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) on the Neat records  label which in turn inspired every band of that era and beyond.  Basically, without RAVEN you just might not have had thrash/speed metal…. after all, the band did give Metallica & Anthrax their first tours!
