As I sat here jamming some Spear of Longinus I realize that alot of Aussie bands are fairly unknown and get very little attention. The Aussie scene to me seems to have a higher concentration of so called "bestial war metal" type bands. I blame on it on the chronic alcohol abuse (Just take a look at MHDrunk for fukks sake). Anyhow, here is
a short list of some standouts in my opinion. This of course isn't complete and I probably missed several great bands, but it's a starting point at least.

Most of these bands are more on the oldschool war/death/black/thrash side but there are a couple of oddities I thought should be included. Discuss and feel free to add your input on bands if I missed any worth mentioning.

Enjoy banging your head and punishing your liver to this filth.

some cool bands listed, funny to see all the 666s in the urls haha. i dont really like d666 other than 'Violence...' EP. i reckon Abominator is the true continuation of Bestial Warlust... even Abominator dropped off a bit on Nuctemeron Descent though. still Barbarian War Worship and Damnation's Prophecy are killer releasees!

cant wait for destruktor lp!

and Diocletian is another good one, they are from new zealand but are bestial as fuck!

destruktor is amazing, one of my favorite war metal bands. if only they'd release a full length...or at least something longer than ten minutes.

I actually like destroyer 666 a lot, but I still don't think they're really much of a continuation of Bestial Warlust.

Destroyer 666 and Bestial Warlust are 2 different entities musically, but both are killer bands if you ask me.
Quote by Ultraussie
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.

Destroyer 666 is a great band, but their music doesn't really sound too much like War Metal to me. it has some of the same characteristics, but the ridiculous, over the top, (awesome) extremity is missing. They're more like (slightly chaotic) Blackened Thrash or something like that, in my eyes. then again, i havn't heard them too much, so i could be wrong.

in that case, that's going to be one of the top albums of the year with ease.

calling something 'bestial war metal' is like calling something 'awesome death metal'
and why scoff when its a legitimate genre? you're nearly as bad as the guy in MetalMessiah665's sig whinging about doom metal

I scoffed when I first heard it, now that I've actually listened to it I recognize that there are distinct differences between it and other black metal subgenres. (this is assuming you're talking about war metal)

also: that's a pretty shitty parallel. you can't really compare someone who isn't (wasn't) "learned" in war metal, a small sub-subgenre to someone who knows fuck all about one of the largest (and arguably the first) subgenres in metal.

Actually that guy hadn't ever even heard of Doom Metal and thought someone in the thread made up the genre

Got/heard Rune - Goetia yet?

Funny you should mention excessive amounts of alcohol and these bands, it was only a few weeks ago at an Oktober fest here that there were blokes from at least 3 of those bands you linked (well, a few dudes who were in about 10 of the bands linked hahah) and the viktorian B&H crew all trying to out drink each other.

I was actually winning, because of successfull flirting with the bar maid and managing to get a free jaegerbomb with every dunkel I bought - but then it was time for the last train to leave and I had to go (apparently). Chris Volcano is a pussy these days, I was drinking him under the table! just a shadow of his former self. And oh shit as I type this I remembered something about having to call him and going to the next Ignivomous rehearsal as my axe skills (or lack of) may be required. I guess it can wait until tomorrow.

Funniest dudes to run into are Dave Slade and ol' Rev Hades. One time at a Sydney gig at the pre-gig drinks, Hades was totally paralytic and nagged me to thump him as hard as I could in the gut until I actually I did it. I felt kind of bad hitting an old man, but it made for lols when he showed the bruise the next night.
