Joining us we have three amazing Aussie acts we had the privileged of sharing the stage with on our travels and one classic killer local band!

Annihilist (Aussie).
Blurring the lines between European melodic death metal and the new wave of American heavy metal, ANNIHILIST, tie this vortex together with a progressive style of songwriting. Live performances are a vital aspect to Annihilist, the overly charismatic singer Harry Pendock always turning heads at shows with his often theatrical behaviour, adding a much needed element of fun to what is all too often perceived as a serious genre.

Kaerulean (Aussie).
Kaerulean formed in 2012 hailing from Brisbane Australia, taking influence from Melodic Death Metal, Black Metal, Progressive Metal and Orchestral Music. Since inception they have self-produced their works and strived to avoid mimicking conventions. Their intention is for the listener to drift into concept fueled journeys and tales of the unknown.

Fenrir (Aussie)
Fenrir speed thrash metal freaks!! Their latest album Loki’s Slaughter mutilates the finesse of Classical and Romantic counterpoints in the jaws of blistering Speed Metal to create an abominable blend of balanced harmony and catastrophic entropy. If you like the unrelenting pace and scale of early Blind Guardian, the brutal grace of early Ensiferum, or just the legacy of the 80s, Fenrir is worth a listen.

Coming from the depths of the shaky city’s (Christchurch) metal underground, SWARF is here to send shards of metal particles full of energy to run a muck in your ears!!!
Insane stage presence.

Gig – @The Darkroom

McEwen DIY M&T & Churches of Steel Fest presents
Lich King (USA) and Hidden Intent
‘THE OMNICLASM’ Australian & New Zealand Tour
January / February 2018

“Lich King (USA) tour our region for the first time belting out grade-A, unapologetically straight-forward thrash metal in the vein of the 80’s Bay Area bands such as Exodus, Slayer, and Vio-lence. To date, the band has released five critically acclaimed full-length albums, each of which feature fast, headbangable riffs in modern stomp anthems and a sometimes comedic yet always violent songwriting sensibility. According to Metal Observer, “LICH KING have been defying public opinion, lampooning the self-righteous, and generally snapping necks with their furious brand of thrash metal.”
Check out their video for “Cut The Shit” here:

“Joining the furious ride is Adelaide’s thrash bangers Hidden Intent. Like the riotous music they play, HIDDEN INTENT have been carving their way through the masses with their unabashedly unapologetic ‘80s-throwback thrash metal, a form of music that wholly embraces its American and European roots in the Bay Area, Scandinavian and Teutonic thrash scenes. Being lauded for their “energetic” live show and the “party thrash” they play for their audiences, they combine with LICH KING for what will be the most thrashable tour of the year!”
Check out their video for “Addicted to Thrash” here:

Come see us join them on their Christchurch stop of the tour at The Darkoom.
Friday February 23rd! 23/02/18
336 St Asaph St, Christchurch!
8pm – R18
