Bastardfest Coming to the Sando…
Starting last year in Brissy, BASTARDFEST is a new (N-E-W not N-U) Metal Festival, popping its Sydney cherry this year at the Sando. With a great line up of local talent, and the chance to win one of these electric skateboards when you buy tickets from any outlet (like moshtix), its sure to a good night of some fairly brutal tunes, awesome door prizes and metal markets (?!?).
Headliners are Tassy metal band Psychroptic who, since touring their last album Ob(servant) in December 2010, have been recording a yet untitled new album. Bastardfest 2011 (across the country) will be the only shows Psychroptic will be doing in 2011 and their set will feature many of the new songs of their forthcoming album.
The line up also features Blood Duster who have stood proud for 20 years as Australia’s most misunderstood and most maligned grind band. Not bowing to any particular scene, not playing music industry games, not giving a fuck about whats hip, whats current or what anyone else thinks, Blood Duster simply are what they are. Next along the line are Perth originating, Melbourne living high speed hard core grinders, Extortion. The bill continues to grind and screech with Dreamkillers, Tassie’s black metal Ruins, Claim the Throne, ACT’s Pod People & I Exist, Bane of Isildur, Ouroboros, Daemon Foetal Harvest, Anno Domini, Chaos Divine, Enforce, Dawn Heist and Ignite the Ibex.
As a show case of great Aussie Metal, Bastardfest picks up where other metal fests have left off. For more information you can check the bastardfest website, and if you’re so inclined, sign up to their street team and hassel everyone you know to come along \m/
