The New Dead #5: Metalfest Adelaide

Prepare For Raddelaide...

Truth Inc Records presents the biggest all day Australian Metal event in Adelaide The New Dead #5 at Fowlers live on Saturday May 31st 2014. This licensed All Ages event brings you some of Adelaide’s upcoming metal talent alongside some of the country’s biggest and best metal acts and just like last year’s amazing event which saw the biggest crowd to date The New Dead #5 is going to be HUGE!

This year the festival welcomes seventeen bands for you to thrash your heads and throw the horns for, and leading the interstate invasion are Melbourne’s schizophrenic grind thrashers King Parrot - who are currently dominating the Aussie metal scene and will have also destroyed the USA by the time TND arrives. Add to that Adelaide’s favourite Sydney metallers Lord who make a return to the New Dead stage and we are pleased to welcome back to Adelaide for the first time since 2007 Vanishing Point (Vic) who have just released their new album Distant is the Sun. Perth’s Claim The Throne will invade the stage with their Viking drinking metallic antics, Canberra’s Progressive Death metallers Aeon Of Horus will definitely bring the Heavy! The extreme force of Kyzer Soze will prove why they are one of the hottest properties in the Queensland scene. W.A Symphonic blackened death metal act Advent Sorrow venture into SA territory for the first time as do Victorian thrashers Harlott who’s amazing album Origin topped the list of many “best of’s “ for 2013 and rounding off the Interstate list are heavy hitting groovers Bronson (Vic) and the ever so crushing Hadal Maw (Vic).

As for the Adelaide contingent Truth Corroded will return to The New Dead stage after a huge Asian tour on the back of their new album The Saviours Slain which was released worldwide wide through AFM Records. Sebonkira are at the peak of their career with their debut album In The Wake of Change and always deliver the goods in the live setting and both bands also had the chance to represent the Australian metal scene at Australia’s biggest outdoor music event Soundwave 2014. Showcasing the new talent in Adelaide is always a priority for The New Dead and this year we give you Prog metalers Dyssidia, the straight up aggression of Headbore and Voros, the face melting Gorlapse & crushing new comers Amoderndeath.

So there you have it seventeen great Aussie bands all in the same venue on the same day with the same purpose to showcase the amazing heavy talent we have in Australia. Make sure you support this event and support Australian Metal as it gets both further respect and recognition across the global music scene.

Tickets for the Fest can be purchased via for $25 (plus booking fee) or at the door on the day for $30. For more details visit the official Facebook page at:
