The Stormrider Heavy Metal Festival: It's back!

The Civic Hotel in Perth will play host to the epic all day Metal Festival on May 23 that will feature six of the nations top touring bands, three local Perth acts and one band coming all the way in from Java, Indonesia!

Headlining the day are Australia’s finest melodic/power act, the mighty Lord along with Melbourne’s melodic/prog masters Vanishing Point to deliver an incredible one-two punch of world class musicianship and song writing. Perth’s own power metal heroes Silent Knight will premier some tracks off their forthcoming new album while Alkira from the small SA town of Strathalbyn bring the thrash attack and Melbourne’s Anarion deliver plenty of power metal. The Festival is honoured to welcome special guests, Lord Symphony from Indonesia who play ‘epic Javanese power metal‘ which blends metal with their own traditional heritage sounds. Sydney power prog proponents Avarin and Melbourne speed freaks Espionage round out the original artists.

The day will open with some kick ass anthems courtesy of Metallica tribute act, 4 Horsemen and Morphica who offer up their own tunes and some spectacular versions of Dream Theater and Symphony X songs.

The Stormrider merch range has taken a leap forward this year with long sleeve t-shirts, hoodies and girls shirts available for pre order & short sleeve t-shirts available on the day.

All originals playing bands have supplied a song each which will be available for free via the QR code found on the event poster and on the cover of the must-have Stormrider Compilation CD which will also be given away at select promotions and events leading up to the festival
