Band To Headline Slaughterfest VI In Sydney


A band who continually embarks on tours across the globe, France’s avant sludge coven MONARCH will head to the Australian continent for the fourth time in the coming weeks.

From July 18th through 21st MONARCH will dredge the Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth metropolises laying down an oppressive and ethereal wall of noise-filled opening support for Doom legends Saint Vitus. Just days later, on July 27th the quartet will return to Sydney to headline Slaughterfest VI with over thirteen other underground acts on the decimating bill.


MONARCH Australian Tour:

7/18/2013 The Hi Fi – Brisbane w/ Saint Vitus

7/19/2013 The Hi Fi – Sydney w/ Saint Vitus

7/20/2013 The Hi Fi – Melbourne w/ Saint Vitus

7/21/2013 The Rosemount – Perth w/ Saint Vitus

7/27/2013 Spectrum – Sydney @ Slaughterfest VI [info]

A thirty-four minute down-tempo/down-tuned funeral dirge comprised of three tracks,MONARCH’s sixth full-length Omens was released via At A Loss Recordings in February 2012, surging with the band’s caustic, trademark style of slow-motion apocalyptic doom, writhing with haunting moans and layered, ghostly shrieks.

Stay tuned for more updates on MONARCH and At A Loss Recordings in the coming days.

Legendary alternative Metal band HELMET will perform their 1992 platinum-selling release of Meantime in its entirety. The Interscope Records release gave the band mainstream attention with songs like “Unsung” and “In The Meantime”.  With the band’s renewed success after getting back together in 2004, this tour will be one of the most anticipated of 2011.

One of the most highly influential Doom Metal bands in America, SAINT VITUS are regarded as one of the first bands of the genre starting out as early as the 1970’s. The band featuring Scott “Wino” Weinrich, bassist Mark Adams, guitarist Dave Chandler and drummer Henry Vasquez have influenced so many bands in Doom and Metal . “Saint Vitus is more than ready to infect The Metalliance Tour! We’ve been wanting to do something like this for some time now…so prepare for destruction!!” says lead guitarist Dave Chandler. The band has done a handful of shows and some European Festivals but this will be their first full US tour in over a decade.

CROWBAR front man Kirk Windstein concludes, “Wow! This tour is gonna rule! I’ve loved Helmet since the beginning and loved St. Vitus even longer. With the new Crowbar record having hit the streets by then, look out! This bill will bring just what we need to crush each city with an avalanche of stylistic thunder!”
