WINTERSUN AUSTRALIAN & NZ TOUR NOVEMBER 2017

SOUNDWORKS DIRECT presents

WINTERSUN

ORPHEUS OMEGA

CLAIM THE THRONE

AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND TOUR NOVEMBER 2017

The wait is over! The symphonic, majestic, melodic and epic sounds of WINTERSUN finally reach Australia!!
Founded back in 2004 by front man Jari Mäenpää, Finnish epic metallers WINTERSUN released their outstanding, highly-acclaimed debut self titled album in the same year. With technicality, speed, precision and high melodic virtuosity, the band instantly made their mark worldwide. Fast forward to 2017 and WINTERSUN return with their 3rd studio album entitled 'The Forest Seasons', their most varied opus to date and cements their status as leaders and luminaries of modern melodic metal.
With this announcement of their first Australian tour, as expected, a massive air of excitement shall arise.
An early ticket purchase is a must!!!

ORPHEUS OMEGA
, one of Melbourne's prime stock, have evolved over the years into a truly unique entity. Displaying aggressive and melodic guitar work, intricate and powerful drumming, chaotic keyboard work and a varied array of vocal stylings, Orpheus Omega have developed themselves as one of melodic death metal's most promising newcomers.

Perth's CLAIM THE THRONE rip apart folk metal with a merciless assault, delivering an extreme take on melodies that fans of pagan and melodeath alike have been raging for. This October Claim The Throne deliver their epic fourth full-length album 'ON DESOLATE PLAINS' with passion and ferocity – an epic slab of heavy folk-influenced melodic death metal that sees the band at the peak of their 10 year raid.

Nov 2nd - Melbourne, Max Watt's
Nov 3rd - Sydney, Max Watt's

PERTURBATOR

AUSTRALIAN TOUR NOVEMBER 2017

Producing dark and retrofuturistic music with a strong 80's feeling, James Kent AKA Perturbator is the spearhead of the new synthwave revival (along with Danger, Lazerhawk, Kavinsky, Dan Terminus). Since the project's inception in 2012, Perturbator’s music has launched a glorious explosion of hypnotic synthwave that is as exciting as it is innovative.
With Perturbator's music making an appearance in the Hollywood movie "THE GUEST", TV SHOW "Limitless", and the 2 awarded video games "HOTLINE MIAMI 1 & 2", it has reached mainstream audiences globally to overwhelming acclaim. This success has seen Perturbator's profile and demand consistently rise resulting in a string of tours worldwide throughout 2017 and now for the very first time in Australia this November!!

NAPALM DEATH, BRUJERIA, LOCKUP & BLACK RHENO

'CAMPAIGN FOR MUSICAL DESTRUCTION' TOUR OCTOBER 2017

SOUNDWORKS DIRECT presents

NAPALM DEATH

BRUJERIA

LOCK UP

BLACK RHENO

'CAMPAIGN FOR MUSICAL DESTRUCTION'
AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND TOUR OCTOBER 2017


Extreme times demand extreme responses. Australian and New Zealand metal fans, you are about to be vehemently seized by the throat! After hugely successful runs in the USA and Europe, the intemperate NAPALM DEATH, BRUJERIA and LOCKUP gang are heading south to run riot through our part of the world.

Headlining this incredible line-up is none other than NAPALM DEATH. One of the most influential and legendary acts in the history of heavy metal, and considered by all, as the fathers of grindcore. Fifteen albums in, and NAPALM DEATH are in no way, shape or form of slowing down. As stated in their own words, silence sucks, noise is always the answer and they continue to create music that confronts, confounds and eviscerates in equal measure.

Finally after more than 25 years, BRUJERIA storm our stages for the first time hurling at us their razor sharp riffs and spiteful vocals. Walking along the border of death and grindcore, BRUJERIA are a street-level exercise in performance art, with frightening dramatic effect as well as dark satire.

And finally LOCK UP, another savage group displaying their menacing on stage presence for the first time in our region. Consisting of well known metal identities Shame Embury, Nick Barker, Kevin Sharp and Anton Reiseneggar, LOCK UP play a perfect collection of extremities, capturing the dynamics of all the classic thrash, death and grind, but with a more sinister sound… Toca rápido o muere – play fast or die!

Spitting out hot and catchy chunks of stoner, sludge, grind, punk and doom are rising, in your face, heavy Australian act, BLACK RHENO. Their hell raising live show, commanding stage presence and bone crushing anthems are kicking down doors for the band already, and nothing seems capable of stopping them.

NAPALM DEATH, BRUJERIA, LOCKUP & BLACK RHENO performing at:
Oct 4th - Auckland, Kings Arms*
Oct 6th - Hobart, The Goods Shed*
Oct 7th - Adelaide, Fowler's Live (The New Dead Metalfest)
Oct 8th - Perth, Capitol
Oct 10th - Melbourne, Max Watt's
Oct 11th - Sydney, The Factory
Oct 12th - Brisbane, Max Watt's
