This is too god damn good to be true I swear. Only if you are 18+ though...

We are all familiar with overseas festivals like Wacken and Summer Breeze from Germany, Sweden Rock from Sweden, Ozfest from the US, and Hellfest from France, well now, Australia, we finally have a legitimate Heavy Metal Festival to call our own – Screamfest!

With 9 international acts and 10 local artists performing over two days; commencing on New Year’s Eve and concluding on New Year’s Day, this will be an EVENT that will see in the New Year. This will be an EVENT that will create history for Heavy Metal in this country.

These acts includes Darker Half, Vanishing Point, Synperium, Spawn of Possession, Rotting Christ, Ensiferum, Sonata Arctica, Destruction, Defamer, Universum, Killrazer, Virgin Black, Eyefear, Eote, Black Majesty, Cynic, Destroyer 666, Dark Funeral and Edguy. (Line up is subject to change)

Strange lineup. 3 good bands, the rest are fairly crap if you ask me. Still, good to see a bit of diversity I suppose.

I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

Check out Killrazer and Defamer.

Killrazer sound like new Exodus or something, not my bag. Defamer - not too shabby.

I live in Melbourne, and I'm thinking about trekking up for this.
Dark Funeral are one of my favourite BM bands, and ****ing Spawn of Possession! Especially now they've picked up Chalky. Oh man, soggy dream come true.
Plus I've never seen D666, and I don't mind Cynic at all.

I think what we can all take away from this is that people should be allowed to listen to whatever they want to as long as we're all the same religion.
#15
If they get a few more local bands like Ouroboros and Psycroptic to play, I'll definately be there

They could at least have come up with a better name.
I mean... Screamfest?

Too bad I don't live in Australia though.

i dont know if you're being sarcastic or not, but clubbing in sydney is the same every weekend (average), NYE at a club will still be the same ****. Punch Screamfest for sure.
#33
Uh, you should really look forward to Destroyer 666, mate. I saw them not long ago - ****, it was good.
FUCK YOU ALL!

666 BLACK METAL HOLOCAUST!!!!!

Plus anyone who goes to a club is a massive tool.

Damn good lineup, would love to see Spawn of Possession, Cynic, Destroyer 666, Rotting Christ and Sonata Arctica. To you guys that are going, somebody should film and upload.

Someone told me the two-day passes were sold out. I died a little inside, but I'm unsure of the truth of this.
