Melbourne's Festival de la Grenouille Announced

FESTIVAL DE LA GRENOUILLE (Festival of the Frog), brings together eight of Melbourne’s leading metal bands, for a night of metal across two stages. The event, supported by both MetalObsession.net and OzProg, is only $15 and takes place at Melbourne's Corner Hotel on July 31, 2009.

Melbourne band Ne Obliviscaris acquired a new lead guitarist, Benjamin Baret, from France in August, 2008. And with his current visa expiring this August, Benjamin’s main hope of staying in Australia long term is a "Distinguished Talent" visa that would extend his stay in Australia at least another 4 years. The only catch, is that it costs more money to apply than he or the band has, (typical broke metal musicians!) and so this amazing line-up has been put together to raise the money for Benjamin’s visa, to help keep him in Australia long term; to help "keep a frog an Aussie."

As well as the amazing line-up of Eyefear, Ne Obliviscaris, Alarum, Be’lakor, The Ocularis Infernum, In Malice’s Wake and A Million Dead Birds Laughing, Festival De La Grenouille also marks the live debut of a new tech/death band, Primordial Space, featuring Benjamin Baret (guitar) and Brendan Brown (bass) from Ne Obliviscaris and brothers Miles and Glenn Krenzin (drums and guitar respectively).

Drummer Dan Presland Joins The Ocularis Infernum

After a search lasting almost 12 months, Melbourne, Australia's grindcore death metallers, THE OCULARIS INFERNUM have announced that Dan Presland will be joining the band on drums.

Crowned the 'Fastest feet in Australia' at the World's Fastest Drummer competition in 2006, Dan Presland is best known for his phenomenal drum skills with the much hyped progressive/extreme/melodic metallers, NE OBLIVISCARIS, who are set to record their debut full length album in the 2nd half of 2008.

Also known for his skills with progressive/tech death metallers, APHOTIC DAWN, Dan Presland is quickly becoming regarded as one of the leading extreme metal drummers to come out of Australia in years.

The Ocularis Infernum will now start working towards a return to the live scene and the recording of their long awaited debut album.
