After slaying audiences at their opening support slot for Hellyeah, the Gold Coast’s very own groove metallers The Black Swamp have scored the support for Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society in Brisbane.  Zakk Wylde’s Black Label society are touring in support of Catacombs of the black Vatican which was released last year and this is the first headline tour Down Under for the band since 2006 so it is pretty much guaranteed to sell out! Catch Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society and The black Swamp in Brisbane on Sunday 29 November.


Dutch Symphonic metal band Epica will return to our shores in 2016 in support of their latest album The Quantum Enigma.

Italian tech death masters Fleshgod Apocalypse have released the artwork for their highly anticipated fourth album King.

The record is set to be unleashed in early 2016 and is said to be a concept album but the band are keeping tight lipped about what it is. Fingers crossed we will also see the mighty Fleshgod Apocalypse on tour here again in the near future as their last run of shows here with Septicflesh included one of the best gigs I have ever been to!
