By on January 16, 2019

Sydney’s long-standing two-day heavy metal festival, Steel Assassins, is set to return this year with another stellar line-up of amazing local talent. The festival began in 2012 at the now-defunct Sandringham Hotel and the following years saw the festival make its new home at Sydney’s The Bald Faced Stag in Leichhardt. Throughout the years many of Australia’s sort after metal acts have been featured at the festival, including; LORD, Elm Street, Voyager, Desecrator and Bengal Tigers, among others.

Now, as the festival enters its eighth consecutive year, metalheads across Australia will once again return to Steel Assassins Festival on November 1st and 2nd 2019 to embrace all things thrash, power and heavy metal. Three bands have already been confirmed so far for the 2019 instalment, including Tyrant,who will perform their last show ever in New South Wales. Direct from Japan, enter Riverge, a thrash metal ensemble performing for the first time ever in Australia with their throwback thrash anthems to the glory days of thrash metal.

The third band to be announced is Melbourne’s Envenomed, performing for the second time at Steel Assassins Festival.

Plenty more bands will be announced soon. To keep up to date with all things Steel Assassin Festival related, head to the official Facebook page.
