This one isn’t taking place until November but it is one you will want plenty of time to clear your calendar for. Bendigoat Metal Fest is back for another year, serving up some of the best heavy-hitters from Australia and New Zealand for a worthy cause. This year’s charity is Liver Disease. Your line-up is: Convent Guilt (pictured), Oath of Damnation, Bulletbelt, Lustration, Adamus Exul, Decrepit Soul, Catacombs, Feralian, Azreal, Order of Chaos, Sarfaust, Abraxxas, Amelus, Wounded Pig, Requiem, Pterodactyl, Path of Destruction, Chase the Ace and Morth. On and off since 1992, Melbourne-based black/death metal outfit Vahrzaw will also perform. Further information regarding the charity will be announced as the date draws closer. The Newmarket, Bendigo – November 1.
