Aussie Deaths

As in death metal, not actual deaths of, you know, people or whatever. That would just be fucked up.

Although this stuff is still pretty fucked up... come to think of it, I can't think of any music which is more so. What is it with us Australians?


You know what I first thought when I heard Portal?

"That sounds disgusting. And why the fuck does he have a cuckoo clock on his head?"

A month later, I loved the disgustingly filthy abomination which is Portal, but still I have no idea what's going on with the clock, but hey - for some reason, it suits.

Portal will change the way you think of music, whether for better or worse. 

Impetuous Ritual

More disgusting stuff and hey guess what - two members are from Portal.

Similarities and what not but these guys seem to emphasise the whole lumbering crush parts a bit more.


Fresh band from Brisbane, released a self titled demo last year. Same dark shit you would expect from an Australian death metal band. Here's to hoping they make a full length and play some shows with Portal. In Melbourne.


  1. you should have mentioned that the inscription in the tape reads DONT SEND TO ADELAIDE

  2. haha I totally forgot about that... something about those Adelaide sub-humans that doesn't sit well with Aethyrvorous
