There are not enough words to describe the sheer magnificence of AMENRA, a band whose powerful and unorthodox music has created waves in the metal world for almost two decades. Hailing from the eerie depths of Kortrijk, Belgium, AMENRA will bring forth the fierce, pulsating sounds of their music to consume Australia for the very first time. Known for their soul-crushing and electrifying live performances, there is no doubt of the band’s genre-defying style and dynamic, combining the best of sludge, doom and post-hardcore to create music that will consume you completely. Prepare for the most blistering, raw and hypnotic live music experience of the year for, with Amenra, you can expect nothing less!

Melbourne’s YLVA creates some of the darkest, heaviest and most intense music in the country, heightening your senses with extreme volumes and colossal riffs. The four-piece heavy band released their debut record M E T A in 2017, a release met with immense appreciation from fans all over, as well as new signings and partnerships with Translation Loss Records in North America and Pelagic Records in Europe/Australia. With a blood-curdling intensity that will shroud listeners in an atmosphere of sludge-laden post-metal, YLVA will have you at the mercy of their music in no time.

Their passionately fierce and thunderous live shows make LO! one of Australia’s favourite bands. The heavy quartet from Sydney’s live performances can be compared to the way a volcano that has been dormant for many years before unexpectedly unleashing its wrath on everything in its vicinity. The energy and dynamism that LO! Invest in their music is unmatched and this translates live into an absolutely brutal experience. LO! Launched their latest record ‘Vestigial’ through Pelagic Records early this year followed by a month long European Tour & have come a long way carving their distinctive niche of noisy, sludgy hardcore.
