Brace yourselves for 3 jam-packed nights of utterly brutal extirpatory excessiveness courtesy of sick-riff troubadour HAGAMOTO from Japan (Bodies Lay Broken, Patisserie, The Men’s Toilet + many more) and an all star lineup of local chuds that’ll devastate and delight in equal measure.

THE BORKENLAYNE (JAP/AUS) is the latest string in the HAGAMOTO bow of br00dleness teaming up with local drum whacker BRAD (SFHS, Clogged etc) and viscious vocal vehemency by NIK (SFHS, Clogged etc) and BRENDAN (Spew Balloon). A majestic journey into a world of thrashing goregrind wildness full of RIFFS!, WOOPWOOPWOOPWOOP blasts, gelatinous throat excretions and excessive pinch harmonics!!
This tour will serve as the launch for the debut album “PAIN IS THE FEARMINDER” CD out on RADICAL BLARGHST.

EXTREMELY BRUTAL – Solo Version (JAP) will also be launching their debut CD release destined to soil your ears with intensely tough death metal fretboard wizardry and pulverising percussive bludegoning, on the CD (not the shows) by DAN (ARCHAGATHUS).

SHOW #2 – Sun 15th July @ The Bendigo Hotel

SHOW #3 – Sat 21st July @ The Footscray Hotel
