In January regional Victpria plays host to one of the heaviest music festivals in the land, Ballarat Blaze Music Festival.
A celebration of Australian hard and heavy music, Blaze features an all Aussie line-up playing over two stages at Karova Lounge on Australia Day 2019.
The line-up features a diverse range of hard and heavy acts, from the straight-up rock & roll of headliners Dead City Ruins, the thrash riffage of Desecrator and the technical death metal of Hadal Maw.
Whoretopsy bring the brutality via their gore-inspired death metal and Sydney’s Darker Half fly the flag for traditional heavy metal, as do ‘the most isolated metal band in the world’ the NT’s Southeast Desert Metal. Doom and Sludge get a look-in via psyche rockers Seedy Jeezus
Two of the nations longest continually running metal bands Dreadnaught and Frankenbok are names synonymous with the Aussie metal scene and will be solid crowd favourites. Blaze Fest will also showcase some of the newest acts in heavy music with Fall And Resist, Toxicon and Never.
For a full day of heavy metal madness, Ballarat Blaze Music Festival is where you need to be.
Ballarat Blaze Music Festival is on at Karova Lounge 26 January 2019.
