Hey, its Dan here from Australia.
It's not massive but it contains some really killer bands from down here in Oz and New Zealand. We sometimes get forgotten about down here, so bands have to be extra loud and heavy to get noticed overseas. For a fan like me that's a good thing. Here's the heavy:
Apocalyptic sludge-grind from Auckland, New Zealand. Fast sludgey noise with cool Blade Runner and Fallout samples. Welcome to the Wasteland.
Heavy sludge doom from Perth, Australia. Slow. Crushing. Death.
Power violence from Perth, Australia. Savage stuff.
Stoner doom from Brisbane, Australia. Will you play the Game of Cones? Its fun. Trust me.
Pure DOOM from Brisbane, Australia. Be sad and eat the cosmic space shroom.
