A dark, melodic death metal band from Melbourne, Be’lakor has quickly come to be regarded as one of Australia’s most creative metal acts. The band’s international reputation has grown rapidly since the release of their 2007 debut, “The Frail Tide,” and its 2009 follow-up, “Stone’s Reach.” Their newest album “Of Breath and Bone”, released this year has brought further acclaim, and comes as a follow up to their recent explosion onto the metal scene; with huge festival slots and international support acts around Australia and Europe. They have brought their unique and epic dark melodic death metal sound to massive events such as Summer Breeze Open Air Festival in Germany in 2010, and their shows supporting the internationally renowned Alestorm and Turisas on their Australian tours. Drawing influences from ancient mythology and the perpetual struggle between destruction and life, Be’lakor creates songs that take the listener on a compelling journey. With an already impressive but ever growing fan base, and having just returned from another successful tour in Europe where they played Germany’s Summer Breeze Festival and the Czech Republic’s Brutal Assault Festival Be’lakor are sure to continue their domination of the metal scene, and should not be missed at this edition of The New Dead!
South Australian extreme thrashers Truth Corroded have been touring pretty much non-stop since the release of last years acclaimed album ‘Worship the Bled’ with successful tours of Japan, Sth East Asia and Australia and the recent European tour which saw the band play alongside death metal giants Krisiun, Malevolent Creation & Vital Remains under their belts, Truth Corroded are ready to decimate the stage and deliver an intense, fast, heavy and crowd raging set that only they can deliver.
Produce honest, hard hitting, pure Australian metal that challenges, questions and invokes response. With a ‘heart on their sleeve’ style and a raw energy that cuts through the often over processed sound of modern music, SE BON KI RA brings a fresh insight to the heavy metal genre. The name SE BON KI RA is an ancient Haitian proverb meaning “good is rare”. It is this belief in the precious nature of our opportunities that drives SE BON KI RA to passionately express their truth.
after a successful tour with The Cavalera Conspiracy and the upcoming Whiplash Festival Queensland metal crushers LYNCHMADA return to Adelaide to destroy The New Dead fest with a sound that relies on driving rhythms and pummelling grooves backed by a strong dynamic. Their latest album released by Truth Inc Records ‘TO THE EARTH’ (mixed and mastered in the U.S by renowned metal producer ZEUSS -HATEBREED, CHIMAIRA, SHADOWS FALL, ACACIA STRAIN, WHITECHAPEL and more) appeals to a broad range of heavy music listeners who thrive on bands such as the DEFTONES and KARNIVOOL through to MESHUGGAH and CHIMAIRA. LYNCHMADA are a force to be reckoned with – You Have been warned.
From the ashes of 2 of the biggest Australian international metal bands, DEVOLVED and The BERZERKER, comes ROME!
After completing their first full length album (Amalgam) early in 2011, Deprivation have been on a mission to destroy stages and fans alike. Starting with multiple Australian tours in support of Amalgam, they have shared the stage with: Frankenbok, Truth Corroded, Lynchmada, and many other bands. Deprivation then crossed the Pacific to do a US tour with: Short Fuse, Prey for Sleep, and Casket of Cassandra on the Zombie Apocalypse Tour, playing many historic metal and rock venues. Destroying clubs and gaining numerous fans in America, Deprivation have returned home to play some Australian shows to finish up the year (The War Faction Bunker Party 9, The Whiplash Festival IV Tour, and a show with Hypocrisy and of course are honoured to be playing this year’s New Dead Metal Festival in Adelaide). In early 2013, Deprivation will be hitting the recording studio to lay down their sophomore album, and are preparing Australian and US tours in support of it.
Elysians music is powerful, driving and extremely confident. They blend their passion for straight up metal and progressive rock in a way unheard of in the current national and international heavy music scene. Elysian’s latest album ‘Wires of Creation’, storms its way through eleven tracks of hook laden, flowing dark melodies, technical solo interludes and snarlingly evil vocal work. Some bands aim to have their songs sound disjointed by dramatically switching between genres; that’s not what Elysian have done, the whole album flows, it attacks and it releases, its aggressive but gives you time to breath and take it in.”
Kyzer Soze is a 5 piece Death Metal band from Brisbane trying to bring their relentless brand of death metal to the world. Kyzer Soze have made a name for themselves for having a relentless live show filled with energy and entertainment. Kyzer Soze has to be seen to experience the power of their music and performance.
Art:In:Exile’s latest album, entitled ‘Æon Somnia’ (mixed and mastered by the legendary Jens Bogren from Fascination Street in Sweden – Opeth, Katatonia, Swallow The Sun etc), runs the full spectrum of music, from industrial, to melodic death, to extreme to classic metal to produce a wall of crushing metal, swirling melodies, and soaring vocals. Truly the pinnacle of the bands career to date!
If you’re Severed once, you’re Severed Forever, and SEVER HILL’s fans prove it. SEVER HILL provide the ultimate fusion between Death and Thrash metal, with some locally-influenced Metalcore-style sounds thrown in. Hailing from Adelaide in South Australia, SEVER HILL have shared the stage with such acts as TRUTH CORRODED, HYPNO5E(FRA), Deus Ex Machina (SINGAPORE), ISAW, OCTANIC, ARCADIA and more, and never fail to smash out a spectacle of unrivaled power and brutality. With a 4-Track Demo, two singles released and our Debut EP RESURGENCE coming out in October the future is promising for SEVER HILL, with a full-length Debut album currently in the writing process.
Beyond The Oblivion formed late in 2010. We are a progressive metal band from Adelaide, South Australia. We are currently recording our debut EP due to be released late 2012.
Unearthed and held before a Cadaver Synod, and beheaded posthumously,the spirit of the vengeful Pope Formosus resides within this death/black metal quartet. An oath of damnation is cast upon all, unleashing blasphemous sermon over an onslaught of dark, symphonic death metal destruction. Darkness is that which claws from the grave, and darkness in Metal it shall bring…
What do a T-Rex, a Volcanic eruption, and Adelaide’s latest Deathcore band ‘For the Vultures’ have in common?……. Straight out brutality! Combining sporadic gutteral vocals, sensory overloading guitar riffs, pummeling bass groove, bone crushing breakdowns and destructive percussion, their unique sound would serve as the perfect soundtrack to a carpet bombing raid on furry animals…. With a demo and merch already available and an EP in the sights by the end of the year, keep an eye and an ear out for these guys!
FORTUNE FROM TRAGEDY (SA):
Fortune from Tragedy finalised it’s lineup in 2011 following some member changes. Pushing the boundaries of metal, they strive for the hardest riffs between face smashing breakdowns. Soaring guitar melodies meld with hardcore screams to provide their core sound, while the drums and bass drive a truly brutal force to be reckoned with. Fortune From Tragedy’s massive sound is progressive, energetic and aims to be heavier, harder and faster with more riffs and melodies than anyone on the scene.
HEADBORE formed late 2011 and have already made an impact on the Adelaide Metal Scene. With an emphasis built around song structure, the music while brutal in element still has traces of melody. With fast guitars, furious beats, thunderous bass, aggressive vocals and energetic live show all aspects of your metal needs are covered. The band is currently recording with a release date due in early 2013. Check out their facebook & soundcloud pages for access to 2 songs to get the blood pumping.
This is HEADBORE
