So the Slayfest 18 Reunion Edition was a huge success and we managed to get a bunch of footage of which I plan to put up some videos of when I get the chance to edit them all. In the meanwhile I cut together a quick promo clip highlighting most of the bands that played at the festival so check it out:

Rust In Perth 2015 Wrap Up

Well the annual Rust In Perth fest last weekend was an absolute corker, with all the bands of varying metal styles putting on great shows, and the stand up comedy sets were an awesome inclusion and interesting intermission. Congrats to Paul Di Scerni and all involved in the organisation, and to all that performed.

The Scourge reunion was definitely a highlight - I'm sure people that had seen them before may have thought there would be a bit of tongue-in-cheekness to it (which there was always going to be) but I was really impressed. It actually sounded like they hadn't stopped, and were better than ever!

For those that had the misfortune to miss the gig, or those interested, SG O'Callaghan has done a great review and very comprehensive write up which is worth checking out - it sums up the day well:
