“From death to death. From nil to naught. From chasm to the abyss. From exodus into darkness. Through the chambers of unlit to the twisted depths of flesh corruption, we urge all heathens and acts of heresy to come forth!

Making a pact of formlessness and nothingness, Hordes of the Black Cross(MELB) and Funeral Moon (ADEL) are now armed with a split album that will reign the beginning of a new darkenss in Australian black metal.

From the shadows of the Australian black metal underground come these two primal forces of unbinding fire. Arising from the same grimy DIY culture that froths a nihilistic worldview and a universal art/life practice, Hordes Of The Black Cross and Funeral Moon recognized the other as kindred spirits united to devastate a scene intent on imitation and insincerity. Yet neither forget the old gods and masters of black metal, as they forge their own path of twisted destruction.

Exclusive tracks & preorder of the album here:


To purge the inner blackness, a tour has been forged for March/April 2017 with live performances from some of the best underground bands in Australian black metal and punk.

The legendary home of Sydney’s DIY punk underground, Black Wire Records, are hosting the best: Thorax, Oily Boys and Divide and Dissolve.”

“We got our records back early so we’re throwing an impromptu ‘launch party’. Probably a lot like the scene in the movie ‘Notorious’ where Biggie has a throne and heaps of champagne and blow. Our besties GLORY HOLE are playing, as well as loud as hell NUNCHUKKA SUPERFLY and BABY MACHINE from Wollongong and the 3rd show from FALLOW GROUND who feature people from Prison (Europe) and Scum House.”

Birds In Row (France) / Calvaiire (France) / Colossvs (Vic) / Tanned Christ / Thorax / Home Burial / 25.01.15

Sunday 25th January // 4pm // All-ages

The vitriolic hardcore of French three-piece Birds In Row will leave a searing mark across the east coast of Australia for the very first time this January. Formed in 2009, the band’s enthralling and emotion-drenched debut full-length ‘You Me & The Violence’ was picked up by the revered Deathwish Inc. for release in 2012 to a hugely respectable level of underground acclaim. While the future of Birds In Row has since been marred by periods of uncertainty, their 13 shows down under will launch them headfirst into 2015. The band will be joined by their fellow Frenchmen Calvaiire – their debut album ‘Forceps’ displaying a nasty concoction of chaotic sludge and punk – as well as the Melbourne darkness of Colossvs, who have just released the black and death metal inspired juggernaut that is ‘Unholy’.
